2-in-1 Serums: Why Both Water and Oil Are Essential In Your Skincare Routine

2-in-1 Serums: Why Both Water and Oil Are Essential In Your Skincare Routine

Did you know your skin is naturally composed of both water and oils?

Your hydrolipid barrier is composed of a delicate balance of waters and lipids (aka fatty acids) that naturally help protect your skin and regulate its moisture levels. When this barrier is weakened, your skin becomes more fragile and less able to protect itself, becoming more exposed to external aggressions.

Water helps hydrate the skin while oil helps to moisturize dry skin. While water-based serums containing humectant ingredients like hyaluronic acid are important for dehydrated skin, facial oils are key for keeping away dry skin and helping to strengthen and protect the skin’s natural lipid barrier from external irritants.

Not only is finding the right balance of water and oil essential for maintaining your skin’s moisture barrier, but the right combination of both oil and water can also help stabilize and regulate oil levels. When your skin feels dry, it may produce more oil to compensate. When you strip the skin of its natural oils through harsh cleansers or chemicals, the skin can freak out and overcompensate by producing even more oils. Our skin’s natural oils are essential—it’s all about maintaining balance.

Just like your skin’s natural composition, our 1000 Roses Fresh and Dewy 2 in 1 Serum is formulated with both a water phase and oil phase to best support your skin’s natural moisture barrier and achieve your best and healthiest complexion. The benefits of having both in our 2 in 1 formula is that while the water phase will boost hydration and soothe with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, rose water, and aloe, the oil phase will help lock in that moisture to prevent water loss and protect the skin with nourishing oils and essential fatty acids.

Your skin needs both oil & water and it all comes down to balance. Reset the skin's natural water-oil balance with an oil-in-serum formula to help restore hydration to deeper levels of the skin while also providing protection to its barrier and locking in moisture from escaping. You’ll fall in love with the lightweight dewy glow of healthy skin.
