SKN TIP: The Key To Collagen Rich SKN

Did you know most people are neglecting the most important layer of their skin without even knowing it?  Neglecting this precious layer results in dehydrated, dull, accelerated wrinkling and aging of the skin.

Most people are focusing all their attention and skincare products on the top layer of skin – the epidermis.  This layer is where your moisturizer, oils, exfoliators and SPF work to hydrate, nourish and protect the skin. Taking care of this superficial layer is imperative to your skin health. However, below the epidermis is the incredible dermal layer.  Your moisturizers and oils cannot reach this layer, only WATER-BASED serums that are properly formulated.

The dermal layer is the often neglected and forgotten layer of skin. This deeper layer is where wrinkle-causing changes and dehydration take place. 


COLLAGEN  – the main component of the dermis and gives it durability.

ELASTIN – is the next main component of the dermal layer and it gives your skin its resilience and bounce. Damage to elastin fibers, from sun exposure, age, or disease, leads to a loss of elasticity and, consequently, wrinkles.

HYALURONIC ACID – is another very important component of the dermal layer and it work by holding water in the skin giving it volume and preventing the all too common skin issue – dehydration.  

Intelligently formulated water-based serums penetrate through the epidermis to the dermal layer where they work on turning back the hands of time, healing, regenerating and restoring your skin back to its healthiest state. 

Retinaldehdye and Hyaluronic Acid are the top two ingredients we recommend to maintain dermal health and youthful skin.

Awakened Hydrating Serum and Empowered Collagen Revival Serum contain the much-needed hyaluronic acid and these serums have the ability to penetrate to the dermal layer.  Immersed Nourishing Moisturizer also contains precious hyaluronic acid and it will stay in the top layer (epidermal) maintaining adequate moisturer in this layer.   

However these serums contain a host of advanced, synergistic nutrients that transform the health of your skin.  There are too many to list here so I highly suggest you visit and read the detailed list of ingredients in these two powerhouse serums.
