REFINE YOUR SKIN'S TEXTURE: THE SECRET TO THE LAYERING TREND

Is layering the key to optimal skin hydration? Find out!

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the influx of Korean beauty trends that have made their way west, it’s that the order in which we apply our skincare products matters. This simple technique, called ‘layering’, involves strategically applying products based on their consistency, working from thinnest to thickest in order to encourage deeper penetration and overall efficacy for healthy, smooth skin.

Step 1: a nourishing essence

When it comes to skin hydration, the layering method favors using multiple lightweight products to deliver optimal hydration without smothering your skin. Biotherm Life Plankton™™ Essence is a healing face essence with 5% thermal Life Plankton™, the cosmetic industry’s most powerful regenerating ingredient. Formulated to be used as the first step in any skincare routine, this lightweight essence boasts a watery texture that rapidly absorbs into the skin to activate cell renewal from the deepest layers.

Step 2: a hydrating serum

Slightly thicker than a beauty water but still comfortably lightweight, Biotherm Aquasource Aura Concentrate Serum is a 90% natural bi-phase serum with active ingredients such as healing Life Plankton™ and illuminating Medicinal Aura Leaf to give you that healthy, dewy skin glow you dream of. Once the essence has absorbed, smooth 4 drops of Aura Concentrate Serum over your face, working from the center out toward the edges and admire the instant glow it delivers.

Step 3: a refreshing gel

Maximize moisture and finish your hydrating skincare routine with a dose of Biotherm Aquasource Daily Regenerating Moisturizing Gel. Paraben-free and mineral-free, this iconic formula glides over the skin with a deliciously creamy slip and then offers a cooling sensation as it absorbs for total comfort and skin hydration.
