A face essence is a liquid skincare solution that provides extreme hydration to the skin. Its texture is ultra lightweight and absorbed in seconds. An essence is a concentrate of active and rich ingredients that penetrate deeper in the skin than any other moisturiser. Using a face essence daily will help to target wrinkles, fine lines and dull and uneven skin.
Which Essence should I use?
Many face essences are available on the market. All of them have the same main focus: Hydration. All skins need hydration so all skins need an essence. All essences are formulated with various powerful ingredients, such as panthenol. Panthenol is great for treating skin conditions which is great to calm acne-prone skin, reduce blemish and care for sensitive skin. Other essences contain Hyaluronic Acid which helps your skin cells regenerate faster for a young and healthy look.
How should I use an essence?
Essence is the 5th step of your Korean skincare routine, it should be used right after your toner and before applying your skin treatment. You can use your essence twice a day as part of your morning and evening routine. Apply your essence directly with your hands or using a cotton pad and pat on a dry face for a couple seconds. Let it air dry and do not rinse or use a towel.
