This is what makes the combination of Dew Dream + Inner Glow so synergistic – once the serum is applied to clean skin, it can penetrate the epidermis, then applying the oil adds all of those protective layers back in and seals in the actives of the serum, while allowing the skin to do what it does naturally under those antioxidants – free radical scavenging and cell regeneration.
