Oil vs Water Serums explained!

Have you been shopping for an ideal serum for your skincare routine? Oil vs water serums – what is the difference? What should I choose?

I often hear my clients talk about how they love one over the other.  In reality, our skin needs both.  Oil serums are made with plant oils such as argan, jojoba, rosehip.  Check out my blog post about 5 oils that benefit your skin to help you choose the best one for your skin!

Serums deliver concentrated ingredients to tackle a variety of concerns to our skin. They are definitely an essential part of a skincare regimen, especially during the cold winter months. 

You might need both of them, depending on what your skin care regimen is already. The reason why you might need them in the winter than the summer is that in the harsh kind of cold months, they can really quickly and efficiently deliver nutrition and hydration to your skin.

Oils contain essential fatty acids that nourish and moisturize our skin.  On the other hand, water serums have plant-based hyaluronic acid. In addition, water serums also have various hydrosols to aid in the hydration of your skin.  Water-serums are absorbed quickly into the skin. This adds vitality and plumpness instantly.

        Hi Aliaa,

        A serum can be a blend of carrier oils with or without essentials oils; it can also be a water-based type of serum with hyaluronic acid and essential oils. I hope this helps.
