What are the differences between serums, oils and concentrates?
Serums are light treatments that are filled with a lot of active ingredients to target particular skin issues and conditions. They provide powerful skin-restoring and hydration-boosting nutrients quickly into the skin. Serums should be used after cleansing and toning because of their light fluid or gel-like nature.
Essential fatty acids and lipids found in oils replenish the skin's moisture barrier. They frequently contain restorative emollients and antioxidant-rich plant oils like jojoba, rosehip, or seabuckthorn. All skin types, even oily skin, can benefit from facial oils, which should be used as the last step before a moisturizer.
In the same way as serums do, concentrates contain a concentrated form of the active ingredients. Concentrates are thin lotions with both absorbent and protecting properties, in contrast to serums, which have a gel-like consistency. Because of their adaptability, they may be used alone or in layers with serums and moisturizers.
The Best Oils, Serums & Concentrates By Skin Type
Genetics determines your skin type. The quantity of oil released by your sebaceous glands, the size of your pores, and the texture of your skin are all influenced by your genes. Each of these elements affects how dry or oily your skin is, which in turn affects how your skin feels, looks, and behaves. Although your skin type cannot be changed, it can be managed with active ingredients that are beneficial to your skin.
Normal Skin Type
Normal skin is well-balanced, and has even sebum production and moisture content. Generally, it has a smooth texture and rosy, clear surface, with fine pores. There are no visible blemishes, greasy patches or flaky areas.
All skin types benefit from potent antioxidants that can improve the overall health of the skin and reduce the visible signs of aging.
We recommend the Eminence Organics Eight Greens Youth Serum which treats the visible signs of aging with this powerful combination of organic phytoestrogens. Concentrated whole plant yucca, chasteberry and flax seed extract are all active ingredients in helping with the appearance of tight, bright skin and clear skin.
Dry Skin Skin Type
Dry skin produces less oil than normal skin. This skin type looks tight, dry, and dull because it lacks the lipid and oil production necessary to maintain moisture, which is what gives skin its smooth and supple feel. Individuals with dry skin often have pores that are almost undetectable and show more visible signs of aging.
Oils are the ideal addition to a routine for dry skin. These treatments contain ingredients that increase skin's hydration and moisture.
We recommend the Eminence Organics Camellia Glow Solid Face Oil which contains camellia oil, pink tourmaline gemstones and marula oil to hydrate and soften the appearance of the skin.
The Eminence Organics Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil contains rosehip, jojoba and seabuckthorn oil to improve moisture, soothe dry skin and fight the visible signs of aging.
Combination Skin Type
Skin that is combination is neither dry nor oily; it is both. With more active oil glands in the T-zone and less active oil glands elsewhere, this skin type exhibits non-uniform oil production. As a result, it tends to be dry on the cheeks and hairline and oily on the forehead, jaw, and nose.
Surprisingly, the Eminence Organics Cornflower Recovery Serum can help combination skin. To relax and soothe dryness, this serum is enhanced with Biodynamic components including cornflower and chamomile.
Sensitive Skin Type
A genetic disposition to skin sensitivity and irritation is the root cause of sensitive skin. It is typically described as skin that is prone to redness, irritation and tingling.
Choose a light treatment like the Eminence Organics Facial Recovery Oil, which is filled with ylang ylang and clary sage oil to keep skin looking even and properly balanced, if your skin is sensitive.
Oily Skin Type
Oily skin, which is the opposite of dry skin, has overactive sebaceous glands. These cause an overproduction of oil that covers the skin's surface and enlarges pores. Due to clogged pores, oily skin is frequently shiny and can be prone to outbreaks.
We advise a light alternative, such as the Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum, for oily skin. This advanced serum absorbs quickly and penetrates the skin to give powerful antioxidant and vitamin-rich compounds.
The Best Oils, Serums & Concentrates By Skin Concern
In addition to choosing products for your skin type, you can also use products which improve a specific issue or condition. Numerous internal and external factors, including hormone changes and stresses from the environment, have an impact on your skin. They are treatable and it is typical to work on more than one at once (for example, breakouts as well as an uneven skin tone).
Signs of Aging
Hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen in the skin decrease with age due to both intrinsic and external causes. These components are necessary for a supple and firm complexion, and when their levels drop, the skin begins to sag and develop fine lines and wrinkles.
You should include Vitamin C in your skin care regimen if you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This vitamin aids in enhancing the appearance of skin that has been subjected to environmental stressors including pollution and UV rays.
The Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum is formulated with Vitamin C and reduces the appearance of uneven skin tone. Leafy greens like kale and spinach, as well as vitamin E, give your skin additional assistance; you may notice a brighter complexion and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Eminence Organics Marine Flower Peptide Serum is an easily absorbed, potent gel serum delivers concentrated plant peptides and botanicals to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for visibly smoother, plumper and more youthful-looking skin. Ideal for all skin types, especially aging skin, the Smart Collagen+ Complex rejuvenates the look of the complexion while unique algae extracts increase firmness and provide long-lasting hydration.
Experience tighter, firmer-looking skin with the help of the strengthening agents of the Eminence Organics Bamboo Firming Fluid. A best selling product, this concentrated fluid deeply hydrates skin with nutrient-rich coconut.
Dark Spots & Uneven Skin Tone
Do you experience dark spots? Hyperpigmentation can be challenging to treat, whether it results from acne flare-ups, hormonal fluctuations, or UV damage. When your skin is subjected to stresses, it goes into overdrive and releases melanin, a sort of pigment in the skin, as a form of self-defense. Dark patches and an uneven skin tone are the outcome.
Infused with Natural Hydroquinone Alternative and Swiss Alpine Plant Extracts, the Eminence Organics Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster-Serum is an extra strength brightening serum and product enhancer will reveal the look of your skin’s luminous complexion. The appearance of sun damage, dark spots and pigmentation will appear dramatically brighter.
Everyone has visible pores, but some people naturally create more oil than others, which makes some of their pores expand and widen. As skin ages, it loses its suppleness which can result in larger pores.
The Eminence Organics Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate is a best-selling concentrate that will gently resurface and refine pores to refresh the skin’s natural appearance. The mangosteen in this leave-on concentrate promotes radiance while the Lactic Acid Complex removes and prevents buildup, reduces pore size and resurfaces the skin.
The majority of people will at some point in their lives suffered acne-related problems. Acne is treatable, and you can get help whether you deal with little whiteheads or uncomfortable cysts.
The Eminence Organics Clear Skin Willow Bark Booster-Serum will help heal irritation and reduce the appearance of problem skin with this concentrated serum and product enhancer infused with willow bark and tea tree oil. This award-winning product will improve problem areas, reduce pore size and get you clear and smooth skin.
Dehydration and dryness are two different skin care problems. While dehydration is a skin ailment brought on by insufficient hydration, dryness is a skin condition that is specific to a dry skin type and is defined by a lack of moisture (sebum) (water). Itchy patches, increased sensitivity, insufficient skin cell turnover, and hastened ageing symptoms are common in dehydrated skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a key for dehydrated skin.
The Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum will give your skin a youthful looking glow with hyaluronic acid and vitamin-rich strawberries and rhubarb. Our unique Botanical Hyaluronic Acid Complex combines with cica, succulent strawberry and rhubarb to deeply hydrate for visibly smoother, softer skin. Hyaluronic acid is extremely effective in replenishing dehydrated skin. It’s a powerful rehydrator for dry skin that will plump and smooth skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
