A face essence is a lightweight skin moisturiser that will absorb very quickly, it is packed with rich nutrients and active ingredients that are meant to penetrate deeper into the skin than an average moisturiser. The essence will enhance your natural glow and re-balance the skin while fighting any skin conditions on any skin type. It is your key ally when in need of a plump and dewy skin.
Step 5, Face Essence
Whatever you do, don’t skip applying a face essence in your morning and evening routine. It is a treat for your skin, it requires no efforts yet its benefits are endless. Face essence is to be used after your toner and before your treatments. It will rehydrate, moisturise and nourish your skin while preparing it for any following skin treatment, such as a serum or others. An essence can be applied directly on your face and neck with your hands and fingers or on a cotton pad. At KoCosmo we like to use our hands as none of the essence is wasted on a cotton pad. Pat your face gently and keep massaging from your neck upwards.
Which Face Essence should I use?
When it comes to choosing the right essence for you, please remember: any essence will hydrate and moisturise your skin, this is the main reason why you need one, however since all ingredients in an essence formula penetrate the skin deeper than any other product, look at what is your skin needs the most at the moment. The ingredients list can contain Panthenol which is great to cool down acne-prone skin, reduce blemish and care for sensitive skin. Others can contain Hyaluronic Acid, Galactomyces or a combination of both active ingredients which will boost your skin cell regeneration and re-enforced your natural skin barrier.
The face essence is the one of the most efficient and effortless steps of your Korean skincare routine. It shows amazing results and no one should ignore it any longer.
