Hydrating Serum: What is it and how to use it

Hydrating Serum Benefits All Ages And Skin

Why Everybody Is High on Hydration

Yes, you need to put down your mundane moisturizer and start using a hydrating serum today. Why? Because there’s a big difference between feeling hydrated and being hydrated.

So what’s the big deal about using a hydrating serum, you ask? Because it’s like cradling your skin in a big, loving motherly hug. And that hug just so happens to be intensified with healing vitamins and antioxidants that do wonders for your skin. Your ho hum moisturizer has water as its first ingredient. That’s why it just can’t enrich your skin like nourishing organic oils can. It may make your skin feel hydrated, but it really won’t actually be hydrated.

Talk, to me…

There’s a lot of chit chat about serums these days and for good reason. They’re incredibly popular because of the targeted benefits and nutrition they offer. There are oh so many different types to choose from. Your head could seriously start to spin when you try to select one. However, take notice because they’re definitely not all alike.
Let me introduce you to my little friend, Dream Drops Hydrating Serum.

Hydrating Serum Benefits All Ages And Skin


I designed this formula to benefit all ages and all skin types. It is packed with organic vitamin enriched carrier oils and specific essential oils that can improve skin tone and texture, balance out the skin and combat signs of aging. The reason it can do so much is because of the quality and purity of the ingredients. So keep reading to learn all about them.

Pure Ingredients Make All The Difference

Camellia Oil

This is a superb antioxidant rich oil which reduces the signs of aging by protecting the skin from free radicals. It’s also an anti-inflammatory and naturally calms the skin. This and other beautiful ingredients in the formula, like rice bran & sunflower oil, make it an excellent hydrating serum for dry skin.

Rosehip Oil

Our exceptional extra virgin rosehip oil contains essential fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin C and b-carotene (which is a form of vitamin A) This makes it an excellent ingredient to add for anti-aging benefits. It also boosts the skin’s radiance and helps to heal scars while soothing redness. It’s known for skin regeneration and helps with acne scarring and stretch marks, too. Rosehip oil benefits are bountiful. It’s a universal healing ingredient that no true hydrating skin serum should be without.

Argan Oil

This ubiquitous oil has deeply nourishing and hydrating properties. It is excellent for hair, nails and skin. It’s high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin E. It is considered a “dry oil” meaning that it does not leave behind a greasy residue. For that reason and others, it is a fantastic ingredient in a hydrating serum for oily skin.

Carrot Seed Oil

This amazing essential oil targets healing the skin and supports collagen production. It improves cell turnover and smooths fine lines and crows feet. This is excellent for firming your skin. It will specifically help boost the elasticity that we naturally lose over time.

Sea Buckthorn Oil

This is an abundant source of vitamins A, C, E and Omega 7 fatty acids. All of these are excellent for combating wrinkles, promoting healing, neutralizing redness and brightening dark spots. This ingredient is excellent for dry, flaky, sunburned and mature skin. It is also beneficial for promoting healthy skin across all ages and improves skin elasticity.

Olive Squalene

This is a botanical lipid (fat) that mirrors human lipids and is compatible with all skin types. It is excellent at regenerating skin. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It assists in healing eczema, rough and chapped skin. It generates a more smooth and youthful appearance. This ingredient is excellent for those specifically seeking a hydrating serum for mature, delicate or sensitive skin.

Mahhhvelous, Magical Essential Oils

Let’s not forget to mention the incredible healing powers of essential oils like lavender, lemon, chamomile and so many others in this fab formula. They have countless beneficial properties not just for the the skin, but also for the senses. They are an important component that give this hydrating skin serum additional healing properties that help soothe and reduce irritation. Overall they make the skin look more radiant. They are part of the incredible cocktail of ingredients that make Dream Drops such a well rounded hydrating serum. Not to mention they also assist the pores in getting smaller over time, as well.

A Little Goes A Long Way

Dream Drops is an easy to use serum. Place a dime sized amount in the palm of your hands, press the palms together and smooth all over your face. Your skin will instantly feel cared for as the nourishing oils seep into the layers of the skin. Always take care to include your neck and chest, as well. They need the same amount of nourishment and hydration as your face does. Take care to use Dream Drops after using our cleansing balm twice daily.

If sunscreen is part of your daily routine, please use Dream Drops before applying your SPF. Should you have dry flyaways on the ends of your hair, go right ahead and smooth them with the remaining Dream Drops that’s left on your hands. Many prefer this to their Moroccan oil treatment.

But wait, I’m scared!

So many people have told me that they are super scared to use oils on their skin. The truth is that using oils for our beauty treatments has been around for centuries. As a matter of fact, using oils for our skin, hair and fragrance has origins as far back as ancient Egypt!

There’s something that feels natural about using oils

Though it may seem counterintuitive to some of you, our skin produces oil so it understands it – kind of like an unspoken language. Hydrating with oils helps your skin to produce less oil over time. Oily skin becomes less oily. Combination skin becomes more balanced. Normal skin feels soft and supple. Dry skin feels less parched. Dream Drops provides balance and enrichment like no other hydrating serum can.

Protect + Heal + Hydrate + Soothe + Prime = Dream Drops means Dream Skin

Personally I have never been a fan of the watery, thin serums or the hydrating milky serum. I much prefer oil based serums. They have numerous health benefits for the skin and can reduce the appearance of large pores over time. They are quite literally like putting vitamins directly on your face. The right oils are clean, direct in their purpose and rich in quality.

As a professional makeup artist, my favorite aspect of Dream Drops hydrating serum is that it’s also the perfect makeup primer. Once it absorbs, you are ready to apply your makeup and go! Well hydrated skin helps your makeup look fresh and last longer. Now who doesn’t want that?
