Emulsions are one of those products you might have seen around, but nobody seems to know what it really does. In Korea, however, emulsion is actually an important skin care staple that a lot of people have sworn by to get clear, calm and glowing skin. Here's why!
What is an emulsion exactly?
Emulsions are basically more lightweight versions of traditional moisturisers. Think of your current face cream, but slightly more lightweight, and with a more water-like consistency. However, unlike typical moisturisers, emulsions don't just deliver hydration. They're usually formulated with more potent ingredients to target specific skin issues, making it great for all skin types, especially dry, oily and sensitive skin.
Why should I use an emulsion?
While some brands recommend applying before your serum, emulsions are typically used in between your serum and your moisturiser because it helps the other products you’re using absorb more easily and really reap their benefits. This is why emulsions work as a great booster, especially for dry and/ or sensitive skin in need of more nourishment!
For oily skin types, emulsion is the perfect hybrid of a serum and a moisturiser. By now, we should all know that oily skin needs hydration too! If you're struggling to find a moisturiser that will suit your oily skin, try out an emulsion, as they contain the benefit of a moisturiser, minus the heaviness or greasiness.
