We Tried Dr. Dennis Gross' New SUPERFOODS™ Skincare Line And It Really Erases The Signs Of Stress Like Redness, Dryness And Fine Lines

We all live very busy lifestyles, which means that just about everyone deals with stress at one point or another. And while most people know the negative effects stress can have on the body internally (i.e insomnia, dietary tract issues and so on), you might be surprised to learn that stress can also take a major toll on you externally. Yes, stress can even affect your skin!

When your body is experiencing stress, it goes into fight or flight mode. While your body is in overdrive working to balance out those feelings of stress, the amount of antioxidants, nutrients, and oxygen going to the skin dramatically decreases. When this happens repeatedly or for extended periods of time, this means bad news for your skin. Don’t be surprised if you start to notice worry lines, red patches, acne, dark circles and more. Yikes!

That’s where Dr. Dennis Gross’ new B3 ADAPTIVE SUPERFOOD line comes to the rescue. Literally. The revolutionary collection includes three skincare products that were specifically formulated to stress-proof the skin and erase the signs of stress on your complexion.

How is this possible? All three products are formulated with a potent cocktail of niacinamide, superfoods, and adaptogens. “Niacinamide is a fantastically versatile ingredient which makes it ideal to target signs of stressed skin,” says Dr. Dennis Gross. “Niacinamide improves skin’s lipid barrier function, helps skin retain moisture, reduces inflammation, redness, and breakouts and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.” While it’s known that superfoods and adaptogens have incredible benefits to the body, they are actually the most powerful to the skin when applied topically. This delivery allows the ingredients to penetrate the skin rather than being broken down by the digestive system first.

If this all sounds a bit too scientific, here’s what you really need to know: these products really work! I had the chance to try Dr. Dennis Gross’ new B3ADAPTIVE SUPERFOODS™ line firsthand and let’s just say, they are amazing. Like, I now use them every single day amazing. I haven’t had a breakout or dry patch since incorporating these into my skincare routine and I’m also shocked that the dark circles under my eyes are beginning to fade already. 

Get the scoop on the three different products below:

Stress SOS Eye Cream™ ($65)

With ingredients such as Goji, Acai, and Coffee, say goodbye to dark circles and puffiness with this luxurious and nourishing eye cream that strengthens the skin’s barrier and smooths away worry lines for a more vibrant and youthful-looking eye area. Just gently tap a small amount around the eyes with your ring finger. I use this after the serum and before the moisturizer and the results are incredible.

Stress Repair Face Cream ($72)

This powerful and nutrient-packed moisturizer (including Avocado, Kiwi, and Goji) corrects and prevents signs of stress for radiant, hydrated and healthy-looking skin by strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier and replenishing it with essential nutrients that are depleted by stressors.

Stress Rescue Super Serum ($74)

With 10 superfoods and 10 adaptogens including cacao, acai, and Chaga mushroom, this silky-smooth serum allows the skin to absorb vital nutrients. This, in turn, helps correct and prevent visible signs of stress such as wrinkles, dullness, and flareups. Simply massage this into clean, dry skin before applying your moisturizer.

Whether you decide to use just one product from the line or all three, you will still see incredible results in as little as two weeks. So take back control of your skin and don’t let stress wreak havoc any longer.
