Whether you have normal, dry, oily or combination skin – the four main types – you might ask yourself what the perfect skin cream is for you. Well, that’s quite a difficult question to answer, as there are so many types of creams, serums and gels on the market that it can be tricky.
In truth, it’s basically a matter of what you want your skin cream to do for you, as depending on the variety you choose, it will have a different desired effect. So, to help you in this regard, we now look at a few of the types that exist on the market, so you can decide for yourself which the perfect type is for you.
This is not an exhaustive list, so there will be many we don’t cover, but by continuing to read to the end, you will have a better idea of the types of creams that you can buy – which should prove handy for those who are new to the world of skincare.
The Perfect Skin Cream Depends on You
Ok, so let’s take a look at some of the types of skin cream that you’ll find on the market and who they’re ideal for.
The first type of cream we look at is what’s known as a night cream. This is a cream that many women use to protect their skin throughout the night and it’s thicker than normal face cream and so is able to penetrate deeper into the skin. If you were to wear this kind of cream during the day, you’d probably find it too heavy, so it’s the perfect skin cream for wearing while you sleep.
Next we look at clarifying creams that are designed to help people with oily skin. What they do is help the skin to get rid of excess oil in a gentle way without stripping too much of what it needs away. It also tends to leave the skin feeling firmer and more toned.
The next variety we look at is resurfacing cream and as the name would suggest, it’s for evening out the texture and look of the skin. Those who suffer with things like hyperpigmentation, rough patches and blemishes use it to give their skin a more even and balanced feel and look.
The last one we look at today is anti-wrinkle cream, which, let’s be honest, is fairly self-explanatory. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to reduce the signs of ageing and it’s something that’s applied directly to areas that are affected by wrinkles and fine lines.
Many Creams for Many Uses
The reality is that there really is no such thing as a perfect skin cream, as that would assume that a one-size-fits-all product is available that suits every need, every skin type and every purpose. There will of course be skin creams that you’re better suited to due to your particular complexion and there will be products that do a specific job – as we’ve seen.
There are some pretty amazing products out there that produce pretty amazing results, but individual needs make it impossible for a product ‘perfect’ for everyone.
