Polish the layers of your skin: the layering technique secret


If there's one thing we've learned from Korean beauty trends that have made their way to the West, it's that the order in which you apply skin products does matter. The simple technique of layering consists of applying products strategically according to their consistency, starting from the lightest to the densest to promote deeper penetration and overall effectiveness for healthy, smooth skin.

Step 1: a nourishing essence

When it comes to skin hydration, the layering technique encourages the use of several lightweight products to achieve optimal hydration without weighing the skin down. Biotherm Life Plankton™ Essence is a restorative facial essence containing 5% Life Plankton™ thermal, the most powerful regenerative ingredient in the cosmetic industry. Formulated to be used as the first step in any skincare ritual, this lightweight essence has a watery texture that absorbs quickly and activates cell renewal from the deepest layers of the skin.

Step 2: a moisturizing serum

A little denser than a beauty water, but just as pleasant and light, Biotherm Aquasource Aura Concentrate Serum is a 90% natural biphasic serum that contains active ingredients, such as restorative Life Plankton™ and illuminating Medicinal Aura Leaf, to give you that healthy, plump skin glow you’ve always dreamed of. Once the essence has been absorbed, apply 4 drops of Aura Concentrate Serum to the face, spreading it from the center outward, and appreciate the instant radiance it gives you.

Step 3: a refreshing gel

Maximize hydration and complete your layering ritual with a dose of moisturizing care from Biotherm Aquasource Daily Regenerating Moisturizing Gelstrong>. This iconic, paraben- and mineral-free formula glides across the skin in a deliciously silky smooth motion, then delivers a refreshing sensation as it nourishes all layers of the skin, providing total skin comfort and hydration.
