Choosing an essence as part of your skin care routine can be confusing. You’re not alone — this is a common problem ! However, they should be an essencetial part of your skin care routine so we need to tackle the confusion and understand what works for each of us. As our stated mission says – we bring professional products to everyone for everyday use.
Essence: The “Stars” of Your Skin-Care Routine
Your entire skin care routine is designed to protect, maintain and enliven your skin but the essence is where you give your skin a treat. This is the concentrated benefit to provide anti-ageing care and repair from the environmental damage of everyday life.
Essence is designed to penetrate your skin with a rich array of curative ingredients such as vitamins, whereas most other products do the important work of providing barriers against external factors and further damage. In this regard an essence will not replace your daily cleansing and moisturizing routine it complements and operates in parallel with this routine.
Essence create benefits over time, it is not a quick fix !
Once we have the right essence in our skin care routine it is the routine that brings the benefit. The effectiveness of the essence in treating your skin will build over time giving long-term results. There are many essences available, we recommend using essence backed by scientific research and where the concentrations of active ingredients are sufficient to make a difference. We are confident that our Japanese placenta based essence collection ticks these boxes.
Do not wait for signs of damage to appear before using an essence
Of course we all expect that as we mature the continued damage from our environment will eventually affect our skin. We should start to use essence before this becomes noticeable. It’s just part of a healthy lifestyle that we should combine with diet and exercise.
However “it is never too late”. The right essence can also repair damaged skin but why not get started and avoid the stress.
Essence Will Target Specific Concerns
Brown spots from too many days in the sun (or post-breakout red marks) require treatment combinations that prevent and repair. Essences can play a critical role in fighting these concerns by helping to impede damage that can prolong the life of such discolorations, and they’ll also help skin repair itself so it can heal faster.
Of course, to keep discolorations from getting worse, you’ll need to keep your skin protected by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day.
Remember, although you want those brown spots gone today, please be patient with your essence and treatment routine. Just as it took time for those fine lines and sun damage to develop, it will take time for your essence to repair them—you should expect some results in 6–12 weeks.
The Best Ways to Use Your Essence
Now that you know why an essence is so beneficial (no matter your skin-care concern), we’ll share the best ways to use one in your routine !
You should use your essence in your daytime and nighttime routine as a first layer after cleansing, when you use it in the morning it will be working to repair your skin beneath the barriers you apply to protect your skin from further damage such as a sunscreen (SoRE Sun Out 32 is our recommendation). Always use SPF during your morning regimen.
