Why Should I Use a Hydrator?

Back to Tips

A hydrator, also known as an essence, has a water-like consistency and is lighter weight than creams and lotions. Hydrators are beneficial for all skin types and are designed to soften and prep your face to receive deeper moisturization from creams and lotions.

For oily and combination skin or during warmer months, hydrators can be used alone during the day and combined with a plumping gel cream at night. For dry skin or during winter months, use a hydrator as a base layer, layering on a Hyaluronic Acid gel cream immediately afterwards.

With regular use, layering an essence or hydrator before your moisturizer can help delay visible signs of aging for all skin types. Read more about our hydrators here.
