What Should You Look For When Choosing a Skin Cream?

Skin Cream: What is it and how do you choose it?

Skin cream is a skin care product that supports skin integrity, enhances its appearance, and relieves skin conditions. The main purpose of skin cream is to give you perfectly glowing and healthy skin while retaining its moisture content and ensuring that it is hydrated. There is a huge variety of skin creams available in the market, but to choose the best cream for yourself, you must understand your skin type and which skin cream should be applied to that particular skin. Skin Creams are made for all skin types and all the other individual skin solutions one is looking for. Read below to help understand your skin and help you select the perfect skin cream for you.  

 Know your Skin: 

Our skin is mainly divided into 4 skin types. The type of skin is determined by genetics, although other factors will also affect it and can change with time. The four main types of skin are;

 Normal Skin: This skin is neither too dry nor too oily. It is not prone to breakouts, flakiness, or feeling greasy or tight. People with normal skin typically have tiny pores and a smooth skin texture and are less prone to sensitivity or blemishes.

 Dry Skin: In many cases, dry skin is caused by external factors such as the weather, low air humidity, and immersion in hot water, and it is usually temporary. However, for some people, it may occur more often and even be a lifelong condition. 

 Oily Skin: Oily skin happens when your glands produce too much sebum, leading to a greasy surface, clogged pores, and acne. Oily skin is perfectly normal. There are several things to keep in mind when caring for oily skin, but most cases can be managed at home with over-the-counter remedies and proper skincare.

 Sensitive Skin: Repeated skin irritation due to environmental factors, such as the sun, the wind, dryness, or excessive humidity, may cause skin desquamation, that is the detachment of big scales from the epidermis, which sometimes look like fine dust. However, desquamation may also result from some conditions, such as an allergic reaction, a fungal or staphylococcus infection, an immune system disorder, and oncological treatments.

 Ingredients to look for in a Cream for Dry Skin:

Dry skin is a very common skin type caused by not having enough moisture in the most superficial outer layer of your skin. When looking for a skin cream for dry skin, you look for products containing shea butter and lactic acid. These ingredients provide hydration and mild exfoliation to keep dry skin looking radiant. We recommend you try Care Vanishing Cream as it contains an exotic blend of fruits and mineral oils that soften and hydrate your skin. It also contains vitamin B3, E, and B5, shea butter, and stearic acid that prevents dry skin from breaking out and retains its moisture.

 Ingredients to look for in a Cream for Oily Skin:

Oily skin happens when your glands produce too much sebum, leading to a greasy surface, clogged pores, and acne. When dealing with oily skin, we recommend you look for products containing alpha hydroxy acids, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid. We suggest you try Care Lemon Cream for your skin. It contains a combination of vitamin B3, A, and C with lemon extract, which is an excellent antioxidant, followed by glycolic acid and salicylic acid since these ingredients are effective at controlling sebum production and the vitamins help hydrate your skin.

 Ingredients to look for in a Cream for Sensitive Skin:  

Sensitive skin should be treated very carefully as it is more prone to inflammation. For sensitive skin, we suggest you look for products containing aloe vera and shea butter. Care Cold Cream is enriched with aloe vera and vitamins B3, B5, and E and is also fortified with a fairness formula. It is highly recommended for sensitive skin as it is non-sticky and absorbs quickly into the skin giving it the perfect nourishment and glow.
