Serums vs Oils Here’s how your skin benefits

Serums vs Oils
Here’s how your skin benefits

Water based serums and oil based serums are two of the most popular types of serums used in skin care. While both types of serums can be beneficial to the skin, they are different in many ways, lets dive in!


Water Based Serums

  • Lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin
  • Provide hydration and nourishment
  • Can be used on all skin types
  • Can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Can help reduce redness and inflammation

Oil Based Serums

  • Rich in antioxidants and fatty acids
  • Can help protect the skin from environmental damage
  • Can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Can help reduce redness and inflammation
  • Can help lock in moisture and provide a barrier against pollutants

Water based serums are made up of water and active ingredients, such as antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients help to hydrate the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and protect the skin from environmental damage.

Water based serums are lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin, making them ideal for all skin types. The water based nature allows the actives to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin, serums are ideal for targeting specific skincare concerns—from acne to aging to dullness.You may even opt for a boost of hyaluronic acid, like our Cactus & Tamarindus HA Serum, which will leave skin hydrated and moisturized. 

Oil based serums, on the other hand, are made up of oils and active ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. These ingredients help to nourish and protect the skin, while also providing a barrier against environmental damage. Oil based serums are thicker and heavier than water based serums, making them ideal for those with dry or mature skin.

All skin types can benefit from adding serums and oils to their routine, but you have to find the right ones for your skin. Because each serum is so unique, feel free to mix and match according to your specific skin’s needs.

Both water based and oil based serums can be beneficial to the skin. Water based serums are great for those with oily or combination skin, as they help to hydrate and protect the skin without leaving it feeling greasy. Oil based serums are great for those with dry or mature skin, as they help to nourish and protect the skin while providing a barrier against environmental damage.

No matter which type of serum you choose, it is important to use it regularly and in combination with other skin care products to get the best results. With the right combination of products, you can keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
