Face creams are used for daily facial care.
Specifically, we mean all those more or less natural mixtures that cleanse, nourish and moisturise facial skin, with the exception of the area around the eyes and lips. The creams are divided into day creams and night creams depending on the active ingredients contained. There are also creams for oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, etc.
Any respectable cream has a specific function. There are creams against wrinkles and aging, lifting creams, moisturisers, nourishing creams, etc. Face creams are used by both women and men. A conscious purchase is very important, which means having basic knowledge of the main ingredients that are included in the INCI, particularly to recognize those harmful to our health.
NOURISHING FACE CREAM
One of the types of face cream is nourishing. It is usually applied at night, when the skin is resting and consequently facial cells tend to regenerate. In fact, during the night there is no influence of external agents such as sunlight, smog, temperature, etc. Consequently, the epidermis is not stressed and is in a resting phase, ready to receive all the nutrients offered.
Nourishing creams are characterised by a high percentage of fatty substances such as vegetable oils and fats, vitamins, etc. This type of cream is suitable for mixed and dry skin. An important tip is to get enough sleep to allow skin to regenerate; otherwise, it will always look fatigued and stressed.
FACE MOISTURISING CREAM
A delicate face cream is made specifically for sensitive skin, which needs more attention because it is more prone to irritation than other areas.
Skin may become more sensitive due to improper nutrition or due to continuous exposure to external atmospheric agents such as pollution. These days it is indeed important that face creams protect against smog and atmospheric pollution, which have become increasingly common in our modern world. For those who have this type of skin it is recommended to use natural creams that feature a high percentage of active ingredients to balance skin as much as possible.
FACE CLEANSING CREAM
The cleansing cream gently removes impurities from facial skin. It differs from cleansing milk because it has a creamier texture that, in addition to simply removing impurities, hydrates and balances the epidermis. Cleansing cream is the first step for correct skin hydration.
When the product is natural, it can be left on the face without being rinsed; this prepare the skin for subsequent treatments.
The eye contour is the most delicate part of the face and it is the most difficult to treat. For this reason it needs specific products that take into account the various types of problems that can be found in that area (bags, dark circles, wrinkles, etc.). It is essential to remove make-up before going to sleep to avoid possible irritation and allergies due to make-up.
As the years go by, this area may be subject to the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines, which is why it is very important to use adequate products,
even better if natural in order to counteract such symptoms. It is usually recommended to use the ring finger to apply the cream/serum so as not to place too much pressure on the area. Usually the eye contour products can be used both at night before going to sleep and in the morning to reawaken the area in question more quickly. Eyes are the mirror of the soul; therefore it always is good to take care of this part of the body so important but so delicate.
