Face Creams For Your Skin Type

Selecting facial creams is more of an arduous task than most people think it should be. There's expense to consider because everyone wants the biggest bang for their buck; however, finding the perfect face cream is most about skin type and what works best with yours. There are 3 main skin types, each with different textures and requirements when it comes to shopping for the ideal creams.

Normal Skin

This skin type is exactly what you'd think it'd be. It's supple and soft with very little sun damage, no pimples or invading blackheads, and smaller pores. People with normal skin types can usually choose any facial cream they desire without adverse side effects. For instance, the Seraj All Natural and Organic Creams will work just as well on normal skin as the St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastic Moisturizer. These creams both have the ability to tone and firm skin with fresh ingredients while natural proteins keep lines and wrinkles at bay.

Sensitive Skin

By far the most delicate, this skin type is characterized by visible capillaries and a fragile-looking complexion. Facial flesh of this kind would thrive best on natural ingredients like those found in Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer; a cream formulated with organic extracts and radical-free white tea.

Combination Skin

Unfortunately, facial creams for this skin type are difficult to locate without research, as several ingredients are present in normal creams that could irritate combination flesh. Oiliness is stretched across the "T-zone" (forehead, nose, and chin), with dryness spread across the cheeks. These two areas should ideally be treated individually. For example, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream will heal dried out skin, moisturizing with shea butter and soothing eucalyptus minerals. Whereas, Philosophy Hope in a Jar Original Formula Cream combines lightweight texture with glow-inducing ingredients to clear excess oils and leave skin feeling healthy and rejuvenated.
