Vacation and the beach. SPF and your skin. COSMEDIX products and your bathroom counter. In life, there are some things that are just so much better together. One of the latest trends taking over the skincare world is what the beauty industry has named serum cocktailing. Much like it sounds, serum cocktailing is the practice of mixing two or more of your serums in hopes of streamlining your skin care routine and helping to boost your treatment benefits. If you’re a serum cocktail beginner, COSMEDIX serums are the perfect place to start! Each COSMEDIX serum can be safely mixed with another serum, allowing you to cater to multiple concerns simultaneously. Even better, blending products doesn’t stop with our serums—cocktailing can also be combined with several of our toners and treatment products as well!
To help you on your journey to becoming a serum mixologist, COSMEDIX gives you our favorite product hybrids:
Defy + Simply Brilliant + Pure C: Amp up the glow with this custom skincare concoction of exfoliating and radiance-boosting ingredients. Start by dispensing a small amount of our hydrating Defy Triple Hydroxy Acid Age-Defying Treatment into the palm of your hand. This gentle resurfacing treatment works great for those sensitive to retinol, revealing a fresh layer of skin for product absorption and acting as the base to your treatment cocktail (much like the cranberry to your Cosmo). Next comes the kick—apply a shot of our antioxidant-rich Simply Brilliant Brightening Serum, formulated with lactic and salicylic acid, to help refine the look of skin’s texture and help improve the overall penetration of brightening ingredients. Finally, garnish your serum cocktail with a sprinkle of COSMEDIX Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals. Formulated with 100% L-Ascorbic Acid, these crystals help maintain the skin’s flexibility, while helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle, which aids in improving the look of skin’s texture and tone.
Affirm + Defy: Pamper your skin by blending our Defy Triple Hydroxy Acid Age-Defying Treatment and Affirm Antioxidant Firming Serum into a supercharged skincare treatment. Powered with Vitamin E and age-defying peptides, this serum cocktail helps defend skin against harmful free radicals and environmental stressors, locking in hydration while providing a potent dose of powerful antioxidant protection. Defy works to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells, allowing skin to better retain moisture and absorb ingredients. Combined, these serums will have you covered in a smoother complexion that’s healthier-looking.
Purity Balance + Clear: Spot the difference when you mix our pore-refining Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner with the clarifying Clear Deep Cleansing Mask. This blend boosts the appearance of clear, healthy-looking skin by balancing the skin’s pH level, providing gentle exfoliation and helping absorb excess oils and impurities. The skin-loving ingredients found in this blend make it an ideal combo for acne-prone skin. Simply apply a small amount of Clear to your fingertips, spraying Purity Clean directly on top. Once mixed, this mask cocktail can be applied as an all over treatment or used as a spot treatment for specific problem areas.
