The Best Emulsions For Winter 2021


K-beauty routines aren’t just about layering 10-12 products; they also involve unique formulations that offer dynamic benefits to the skin. Take, for instance, our topic at hand. Emulsions are lightweight moisturising formulations intended to deeply moisturise rather than just hydrate. They are lighter than your usual cream or lotions. They get absorbed quickly and have added anti-ageing and de-pigmenting benefits.

Because of the smaller molecular size of emulsions, they seep into the skin faster and deeper and keep it hydrated for hours. This is a blessing all year round for oily and combination skin types, but especially in winter. Oily skin is starved skin, and these emulsions will be ideal for feeding it essential moisture during the winter season.
