What Exactly is Essence

In the world of skincare, the Korean 10-step routine has gained popularity for its comprehensive approach to achieving a glowing dewy complexion. Among these steps, the essence plays a key role as the fifth step.  It acts as a crucial primer for all the subsequent products in your routine. To better understand its significance, let's delve right in.

Imagine your skin as a dry sponge. Just as a dry sponge may struggle to absorb water efficiently, your skin might not fully absorb the goodness of your skincare products if it lacks proper hydration. This is where the essence comes in, acting as the "water" that moistens the metaphorical sponge of your skin.

An essence, much like wetting the sponge, preps your skin to absorb the subsequent skincare products more effectively. It creates a hydrated foundation that allows serums, moisturizers, and treatments to penetrate deeper into the skin layers which maximizes their benefits. Just as a wet sponge can hold more water, your skin, when properly hydrated with an essence, becomes more receptive to the nourishing ingredients you apply afterward.

The Klean Rituals Essential Essence is a proprietary blend of galactomyces ferment filtrate, green tea leaf extract, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid that helps skin appear brighter, firmer and more hydrated.  It also acts as the perfect hydrating primer and readies it to absorb the potent goodness of the following products.

Incorporating the Klean Rituals Essential Essence into your skin care ritual is easy.  Simply pat a couple of pumps of the essence onto your skin. Follow with the Klean Rituals Complete Serum, a moisturizer, and a sunblock during the day.

So, the next time you embark on your skincare ritual, remember that the essence helps reduce the signs of aging by making your skin feel smoother and look more radiant.  By mimicking the act of wetting a sponge, it also allows your skin to drink in the benefits of subsequent products, unlocking the full potential of your skincare routine. Embrace this key step, and watch as your skin blooms with newfound vitality and beauty.
