The secret to hydrated and glowing skin is here!
But first, what is an essence?
Dr. Alain Mavon explains
“An essence’s job is to add an extra layer of moisturisation and prepare the skin for the active ingredients in your serum and face cream, by accelerating cell turnover and reducing the appearance of pores.” And why do I need it? Everyday hydration is key to healthy looking and glowing skin, especially during winter when the cold weather makes your skin extra dry and sensitive. This is why NovAge Skin Priming Essence’s key ingredients are Marine Prebiotic and four moisturisers.
“My favourite thing about the product is the prebiotics”.
WHAT ARE PREBIOTICS?
– They are basically food for the good bacteria on our skin, so that we can fully benefit from our other skin care products.
