The new beauty step you need in your routine


The new beauty step you need in your routine
Here's why you need to include an essence in your beauty regimen.

For much of 2016 it seemed like all we were hearing about in the beauty world was Korean-beauty import, the essence. And while initial the buzz may have quietened – essences have become a staple in our beauty regimen. “Today’s beauty essences go beyond traditional treatment lotions. They deliver powerful serum-like benefits in a watery lotion that is packed with good-for-your-skin nature’s extract with higher doses of active ingredients,” explains Audrey Ang, regional education director of Asia Pacific for Estée Lauder. “Essence is the first step to repairing which helps strengthen skin’s foundation,” she says explaining that skin is more receptive to skincare when it’s well hydrated. “One of the first and most important functions of healthy skin is a strong moisture barrier. An essence will maximise the benefits of your serum and moisturiser.”

Re-Nutriv’s newest addition to the collection, Ultimate Lift Floralixir Dew Regenerating Water ($188) comes at a time when we’re demanding more from skincare products we chose to include in our skincare regimens. To deliver real results Estée Lauder has combined the best of both worlds: scientific innovation and nature’s finest ingredients. “The formula features a potent concentration of our exclusive FloralixirTM Dew that helps deliver powerful visible regeneration, lifting and skin strengthening benefits,” says Ang. Rare flowers from Brazil and the Himalayas that are known for their resilience are enhanced with mineral-enriched ionic water which helps the formula penetrate deeply into the skin’s surface layers. “Instantly skin looks smoother and more radiant. The luxurious formula helps soothe, calm and rebalance delicate skin.Overtime helps strengthen skin’s protective moisture barrier to help resist future signs of ageing.”
