Fact or Fiction: Does an Essence make a difference in skincare?

Fact or Fiction: Does an Essence make a difference in skincare?

It can be confusing, right! What would be the value of using a product that the main ingredient is a water-based carrier? How would that make a difference in the big picture of our skincare routine? How would we know which Essence, if any, would be of benefit?

The fact is although an essence is lightweight, it will contain a concentrated active ingredient. Because of the water-based carrier, it will prime skin and prepare the skin for what comes next. 

Applying an Essence has been an essential part of the K-Beauty routine for decades. The Essence chosen should contain ingredients consistent with the goals you wish to achieve.

Want to brighten your skin? Choose an Essence with skin brightening active ingredients. Then follow with a skin brightening serum to boost the skin brightening process. 

Looking for advanced anti-aging? Choose an Essence with restorative ingredients (anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant) and follow with a serum that supports skin rejuvenation.

Do you want to reverse severe, dry skin? Choose an Essence with moisturizing support and follow with a deeply hydrating serum, and then finish with an advanced moisturizer.  

You get the picture, right! 

With regular use, an Essence will boost the effectiveness of other products you're using by priming the skin. Who doesn't want to get more out of the products we are using!

There will be some things about our appearance that we can improve with some hard work and dedication. There will be some things we can pay a doctor to fix (and then maintain with a consistent skincare routine). There'll be some things we cannot do anything about. I'll never be 5'8" or have the body of a runway model and I'll never be 25 again.

When you look in the mirror and you see excess skin & folds forming from the cheeks to the jawline, you are seeing saggy jowls. When collagen and elastin becomes depleted, sagging skin is the result.
