Are Serums & Essences The Same? & Correct Steps To Apply A Skincare

People always think that serums and essences are the same when they are not. They might deliver the same function but the truth is there are some slight differences in them. First, let’s get to know both of them and how you can incorporate them in your routine.

What is serum? 

Serum is a skincare product that is used before you moisturize your skin and it is a highly concentrated product that contains active ingredients. The high concentration in serums enables them to access the deepest skin layer, which then can help to hydrate and repair it. They are usually clear, gel-based, or liquid and are thicker than essences. A face serum can bring many benefits, depending on your skin concern. 

Let’s take a quick look at the key benefits for a face serum:

  • Absorbs quickly to your skin
  • Helps with sensitive skin or redness
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles

There are many types of serums available in the market, for instance hydrating, antioxidant, anti-aging, and color correcting serums. All of them deliver different functions so you need to choose wisely depending on your skin issues. If you are looking for a serum that can brighten and even out your skin tone, try using PIXY White Aqua Concentrated Brightening Serum. It contains niacinamide which helps in improving skin tone and reducing fine lines. This serum also has intensive moisturizing agents that can make your skin stay moisturized.

What is essence?

Essence is a skincare product that you use after toner and before moisturizer. It is water-based and contains active ingredients, which are to address your skin concerns. Serums and essences are very similar in terms of functions, but they differ in texture. Serums are more concentrated while essences have a watery texture. There are many types of essences available in stores, for instance hydrating essences for dehydrated skin and brightening essences for dull skin. If you are looking for an affordable essence that can help brighten and maintain your skin moisture, we have PIXY White Aqua Hydra Moist Essence just for you! It is completed with Vitamin C and Mulberry Extract that helps brighten your skin as well as making it feels fresh all day long.
