A face cream is as its name states a cream that will hydrate, moisturise and soften your skin. It will intensify its elasticity and help fading away fine lines and wrinkles. Face cream retains moisture and holds water on the skin layers. It will reinforce the skin barrier which will protect you from outdoor damaging factors causing dryness and irritations.
Which Face Cream should I use?
There are many types of creams available on the market. Face creams have been developed to suit all kinds of skin types and skin conditions. If you have a dry, aging or irritated skin type, go for a thicker and heavier cream that contains rice or centella asiatica. These ingredients will deeply nourish the various layers of your skin. For oily and combination skin types that suffer from acne we recommend a lightweight texture with soothing ingredients such as jojoba seed oil or snail mucin. Finally if you suffer from hyperpigmentation, look for formulas that contain niacinamide and vitamin C.
How should I apply the cream?
Face cream is step 9 of your routine, this will be the last step of your evening routine. In the morning however, you will apply SPF as step 10. You cream should only be applied on a thoroughly cleansed, exfoliated, toned and treated skin. Use a small amount and massage your face until full absorption of the product. Do not rinse.
