In skincare, essences only recently became popular when KBeauty became sought after in the United States. Up until recently, we hadn't really been using them at all. Which is kind of a waste of a good product opportunity too, because this is a skincare step that I wholeheartedly approve of for my skincare regimen.
An essence is a very light toner type of product that is actually used in between a toner and a serum. In the KBeauty ritual, it is a product that helps to build a strong natural moisture barrier. The natural skin barrier is comprised of skin cells and lipids that protect the skin from external factors, like any harmful bacteria, pollutants, microorganisms and other aggressors. It holds in moisture and helps to keep skin functioning at is optimal level.
One essence that I read about and have been using regularly is called NEOGEN Dermalogy Real Ferment Micro Essence. The special properties of this essence are that it helps to give one glowing, supple and hydrated skin. Imagine natural fermented water targeted benefits from the skin's foundation to awaken a renewed natural moisture barrier. This naturally fermented essence is instantly absorbed into the skin to maximize the skin benefits without leave skin feeling sticky. It also helps create the best skin condition for the next skincare steps, achieving a healthy, supple and glowing skin. This essence is deeply hydrating and brightening and contains more than 93% Micro Bio Ferment Complex to deliver instant skin benefits. The fermented essence is formulated with natural brighteners for glowing, supple skin. It is good for all skin types.
This essence contains the following ingredients that make the skin look brighter and feel more supple. Bifida Ferment Lysate is an ingredient that strengthens the skin barrier, boosts skin elasticity, is moisture balancing and augments the skin's immunity against harmful chemicals. Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate helps to increase skin elasticity, maximizes moisture, strengthens immune function, and promotes skin regeneration. Betula Alba Juice has antioxidant and anti-septic benefits. Aspergillus/Rice Ferment Filtrate is an oil/moisture balancing ingredient.
To use, use daily in the morning and evening. Use after cleansing and toning. Sprinkle essence into palms of hands and pat until absorbed into skin. You can also use a cotton pad to apply and gently sweep across face and neck gently patting until essence is absorbed. Personally I prefer the former method so as not to waste any. I like to pat it onto the skin with my hands and wait until it absorbs.
I first read about this product in an allure article on Twitter. The editor had mentioned how nice her skin looked after she used it. I have noticed that my skin lately has been brighter and more resilient, and it definitely needed the hydration. My skin has grown extra dry due to menopause. The product specifically promotes a better skin barrier and a more hydrating and moisturized skin function. It literally absorbs instantly. The fermentation helps promote a more stabilized natural moisture barrier by balancing out the microorganisms that live on it with its fermented ingredients.
Anytime you add good bacteria (fermentation) to the natural moisture barrier, only good things can result. It would be like being able to add Greek yogurt to your diet. it is the same principle. Which is also a good idea for the skin too, as it promotes the good bacteria on the natural moisture barrier. In fact, other companies have taken note and have started to add probiotics (fermentation) to their products too to promote a well functioning natural moisture barrier. The end result is skin that is less sensitive, well hydrated, less compromised, better functioning and glowing.
