Everyone has a different definition of beauty. For instance, Western culture regards tanned skin as beautiful while pale skin is considered unattractive. Conversely, Eastern culture considers pale skin to be beautiful because it signifies wealth, compared to the poor laborers with tanned skin from working in the sun every day. But here’s one thing that is universally beautiful: healthy skin.


Many factors play a role in the health of our skin, starting with our unique set of genes that dictate our skin type and characteristics. Even though we do not have any control over our genes, we do have control over the external factors that affect the health of our skin. These factors include the foods and drinks we consume, the amount of exercise we participate in, products we apply to our skin, the amount of time we expose our skin to the sun, and many more.


Experts agree that in order for the skin to protect our bodies from these harmful environmental factors, it must be kept adequately hydrated. Hydrated skin will remain flexible and durable, thus keeping our protective barrier intact. However, if the skin is dehydrated, dry, and broken, environmental factors can damage our bodies and lead to even more water loss. Ultimately, acyclical pattern of damage begins due to further dehydration of the skin. Needless to say, hydration is a crucial component of maintaining healthy, beautiful skin. Which is why we’d like to introduce you to the ImmacuDerm Daily Use Skin Hydrator: a beauty must-have!


Water vs. Oil

When it comes to keeping skin hydrated, people often get confused as to whether the skin needs more water or more oil. The simple answer is that it needs both!

Drops of oil in water

If the skin is dry, our first instinct is to reach for a cream or lotion that is rich in oils because these instantly help our skin feel more smooth. However, the problem with oils is that they function as occlusive agents, which means they work by trapping existing moisture into the skin. So if your skin is lacking moisture to begin with oils simply won’t work. Therefore, you must first use ingredients that draw moisture into the skin, followed by occlusive agents that will lock in that moisture.


Recognizing the importance of both water and oil for skin hydration, we’ve formulated theImmacuDerm Daily Use Skin Hydrator with a blend of ingredients that will draw moisture into your skin as well as repair the skin barrier in order to lock that moisture in.

Humectants to draw in moisture

If your skin is lacking hydration, using a product with humectant ingredients is the best way to replenish your skin.Humectants are compounds thatattract water from two sources, from the dermis (middle layer of skin) into the epidermis (upper layer of skin) and in humid conditions from the environment. TheImmacuDerm Daily Use Skin Hydrator contains multiple humectant ingredients, including hyaluronic acid and glycerin.


Hyaluronic acid is the key molecule involved in skin moisture and accounts for 50% of the body’s total content of hyaluronic acid. As a glycosaminoglycan (a very large sugar molecule) hyaluronic acid has the ability to absorb and retainup to 1,000 times its weight in water. The problem is that the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes with age, which makes skin more prone to dryness and dehydration. Therefore, including hyaluronic acid as an ingredient in topical skincare products, such as the Daily Use Skin Hydrator, will have a major impact on your skin’s hydration.

Organic oils to seal in moisture

While moisture will replenish dry, dehydrated skin, it won’t stay that way if there is no oil protecting it from evaporating and abandoning the skin. Therefore, we’ve formulated theImmacuDerm Daily Use Skin Hydrator with plenty of organic botanical oils, such as jojoba oil and sunflower oil.


Helianthus annuus seed oil, otherwise known as organic sunflower oil, provides many skin benefits due to its rich supply oflinoleic acid, an essential fatty acid. According toDermatology Times, linoleic acidcan help maintain the skin barrier and decrease transepidermal water loss.

Another beneficial oil found in the Daily Use Hydrator is jojoba oil. The chemical composition of jojoba oil mimics our skin’s natural sebum more closely than any other oil. For this reason, topical application of jojoba oil essentially tricks the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, which helps to balance both oil production and moisture retention.


The last beneficial ingredient found in theImmacuDerm Daily Use Skin Hydrator we want to touch on is glyceryl stearate. Glyceryl stearate is the combination of glycerin and stearic acid (a fatty acid derived from vegetable oils) and functions as an emollient when applied to the skin’s surface, making it feel soft and smooth. According toTruth in Aging,glyceryl stearateeasily penetrates the skin and slows the loss of water by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface.
