Uncover the Secrets to Buying the Best Skin Creams


Most people do not realize this, but you can purchase the best skin creams without spending a lot of money. There are people spending hundreds and sometimes thousands on products for their skin. I know it is hard to believe, but it is not necessary. The secret to choosing the best skin screams is to know your skin type. If you look for certain words and ingredients for your skin type you will find the products best for your skin.

– If you have normal to combination skin, that is skin with a T-Zone and often break out in the middle of your face, on the nose or chin, but the skin on your cheeks is normal to dry, you are actually quite lucky. Because your skin is neither too oily, too dry, nor too sensitive, feel free to use whatever formulations or ingredients you prefer. It is always good to choose products that are “noncomedogenic”, because they do not clog pores.
– If you have oily skin or acne prone skin use water-based, light weight lotion or gel formulations, and stay away from heavy creams.
– If you tend to have dry skin you are looking for heavy creams. Look for something that has waxy occlusive emollients, such as Shea butter, lanolin, or mineral oil. Look for oil based lotions and creams, because water-based evaporate quickly and will not provide enough long lasting moisture.
– If you have sensitive skin it is wise to patch test any product on your forearm for twenty-four hours before using on face. You should really baby your skin. Fragrances free and hypoallergenic are two buzzwords to look for on products labels. The fewer the ingredients in any facial product the gentler and safer it will be to sensitive skin.

Another thing that you should consider when looking for any skin care product is the price. Spending more money convinces people that something works better. If that belief combined with the enjoyment of applying an expensive, more luxurious lotion or cream makes you more inclined to use it with consistency the placebo effect works wonders.

However, consider that skin care creams all include similar common ingredients, just in slightly varying concentrations; it just does not make rational sense to spend more money on them. As you can see the best skin creams depends on the type of skin you have, and you do not have to spend a lot of money.
