What's Essence in Skincare, and How Does It Work
Everything You Need To Know About Skin Essences
Having a skin essence in your skincare regimen is essential as it helps you to get the most out of your other skincare products. It provides an additional layer of hydration so that your skin can absorb the active ingredients more effectively from your serums, creams, and/or moisturizers. This must-have product may not have been on your radar until now, so buckle up and read on to find out everything you need to know about facial essences.
What is a skin essence?
A skin essence is thicker than a toner but more watery and more lightweight than a serum. It quickly absorbs into your skin with no tacky feel or leftover residue, ensuring that it feels more supple and looks smoother. Its active ingredients are greatly beneficial in targeting dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and uneven skin tone. A facial essence acts as a primer for your skincare routine. Applying facial essence helps to hydrate your skin, while boosting its ability to absorb the serums and creams that you will be applying afterwards. With regular use, facial essence can help you achieve smoother, more radiant and younger looking skin.
When and how should you use a skin essence?
A skin essence is great for everyday morning and night use. This should be applied after cleansing your face and applying toner. After the facial essence is absorbed by skin, proceed to apply your serum and creams.
A skin essence can give your skin that extra care it needs — especially if you're concerned with dull and uneven skin and large pores.
