Skin hydration is critical for healthy, youthful-looking skin. Why, you ask? Because hydrated skin is less sensitive and has a smoother, plump texture, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
The second step of VIIVA’s daily skincare routine is all about hydration. The Hydrating Pre Essence is applied after the Foaming Cleanser and is designed to hydrate the skin and to prepare the skin for serums and moisturizers.
The essence works to lock in moisture and soothe the complexion. Its silky texture leaves the skin feeling refreshed and balanced!
How It Works
The Hydrating Pre Essence is powered by several key ingredients.
Niacinamide helps build keratin for firm skin and supports the creation of a lipid barrier to help your skin retain moisture.
Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) supports youthful-looking skin, and helps treat skin for signs of aging to help you feel your most confident.
Saccharide isomerate is a plant extract that is known for its ability to hydrate and protect the skin.
Centella extract is an herb with antioxidant properties that soothes and hydrates the skin.
How To Apply
The Hydrating Pre Essence is very simple to use. Simply apply several drops of the product onto a cotton pad then gently wipe on face; or if you don’t have a cotton pad on hand you can use your fingers to spread and gently massage the essence until fully absorbed into the skin.
Applying the essence twice a day may help promote the following benefits:
- Hydrates the skin and locks in moisture
- Soothes the skin and relieves discomfort
- May improve the skin’s barrier and provide skin protection
- Rejuvenates skin for healthy and youthful appearance
- Nourishes the skin and smooths the complexion.

Why do I love the Hydrating Pre Essence?
For me, skin care is all about the way it makes my skin feel. The Hydrating Pre Essence absorbs beautifully into the skin and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. I have dry skin, so the more hydration the better. I find that including this step into my skincare routine helps my skin feel dewy and clean.
