How to Choose the Best Moisturising Cream for Your Skin

How to Choose the Best Moisturising Cream for Your Skin There are a lot of types of facial moisturisers out there: lotions, lightweight creams, thick creams, gels, oils, moisturising sunscreens, and even tinted moisturisers. Creams are probably the most popular type of moisturiser because they’re effective and easy-to-use. Of course, it’s important to choose the right cream for your skin. Here are a few things you need to consider while choosing a moisturising cream.

Your Skin Type

There are four basic skin types, depending on how much sebum (oil) your skin produces. Normal skin is well-balanced, dry skin produces less oil than it needs to retain moisture, oily skin produces too much oil which causes glossy shine and clogged pores, and combination skin is oily in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and dry or normal on the cheeks. Dry skin needs richer and thicker creams, while the best choice for oily skin is a lightweight cream with a matte effect.

Your Age

Creams for different age groups aren’t just a marketing ploy. Anti-age moisturisers are specifically designed to address the concerns of mature skin, such as dryness, dullness, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging, hyperpigmentation, etc. They’re formulated with ingredients that help to lock in moisture, prevent the destruction of collagen and elastin, and protect the skin from free radicals that are one of the main causes of skin ageing.

Season

Ideally, you should tweak your skincare routine every time the season changes. For example, winter is the time for thicker, richer creams that will protect your skin from the cold and wind. In summer, you should switch to a lightweight moisturising cream with SPF. It will protect your skin from the sun without making it look and feel greasy. The best creams for spring and autumn skincare contain antioxidants that help the skin to transition between seasons.

Time of the Day

A lot of people use the same moisturising cream in the morning and in the evening. While this approach is perfectly acceptable, it’s best for your skin if your skincare regimen includes two creams, one for the day and the other for the night. Day cream keeps your skin hydrated all day long, as well as protects it from the sun, free radicals and other environmental influences. Night cream helps the skin regenerate while you’re getting your beauty sleep.
