Was not it so relaxing when there were only three to four cream brands with almost the same ingredients and packaging? It was a child’s play to select one and feel satisfied. With the increase of new innovative products every day, it is becoming so hard to find the right product for yourself. It would not be erroneous to say that more the advancement more the troubles!
The beauty industry has developed drastically in the past few years, especially skincare. These days’ people are more inclined towards skincare rather than caking their faces with a lot for makeup products, and peer pressure is adding oil to the fire. Not to forget the craze of social media and how it is spreading awareness, or you can say nuisance in disguise.
With the increase of skincare brands, it is becoming harder and harder to choose the product that is effective and affordable. It sounds silly but yes, finding a compelling product that actually works and does not bankrupt us is a huge task. The cosmetic stores are filled with colorful Cream Boxes that claims to give instant fairness and wrinkles reduction overnight but disappoints like anything.
Let’s dig some deep into the matter and see how we can find the right product for our skin, keeping all the factors in mind that affect the results and quality.
Get to know your skin type
The very first step in selecting the cream that actually works and improves your skin in a noticeable way is to know your skin type. Every human skin is different from another, and it is not necessary that one cream that suits one person will give the same results to another.
Mostly the skin is of 3 major types
- Combination (normal)
How to check the skin type?
It is so easy to check your type of skin. You just need a tissue paper or blotting paper.
When you come round in the morning dab a tissue or blotting paper on your face, and if there is no oil on any part of your face, it means you have dry skin.
Pat tissue or blotting paper on your T-zone (the area around nose and center of the forehead) when you wake up in the morning, if there is oil on the paper, it indicates that you have a combination or normal skin.
Oil all over the face in the morning or during the day is an indication of oily skin.
It is recommended to go for the cream that suits your skin type. These days all of the custom cream boxes mention for which type of skin this cream is suitable for and many brands make the same cream with a different formula for each skin type.
What ingredients are most suitable?
Choosing the right ingredients according to skin type in cream is essential. Effectiveness of any beauty cream depends on the ingredients. How could you expect any product to work when it is not made for you? If you expect a face wash to clean your clothes and detergent to make your face shine, then nothing can save you from the catastrophic results.
Using creams with petroleum and mineral oils is not recommended for oily skin as it clogs the pores and traps more oil, causing a breakout. Creams with Dimethicone, Glycolic Acid, and hyaluronic acid are best for oily and acne-prone skin by cleaning the oil, unclogging pores, and provide hydration without being greasy.
Ingredients like aloe vera and lactic acid help in healing dry skin. Always look for the right ingredients on the package. Designing wholesale cream boxes now allows the brands to mention ingredients and skin type on the packaging, which makes it convenient to choose the correct cream.
Search for organic products
If you desire for the best of the products to be in your hand, most effective cream in most reasonable price, the best and reliable source are reviews. Internet is flooding from the bloggers and reviewers who give reviews about skin creams. Go to the authentic source and look for the most rated and tested creams. It is necessary to search for the reviewers who are there to give honest reviews about the usage, effects, and side effects of the product according to the skin type. It is something that needs proper time and research because of the following reason that can’t be ignored.
- Skin care products give results in the long term, so it is impossible to keep switching between new products and expect results overnight.
- Changing creams too often will severe the problem rather than solving the issue. Human skin needs time to absorb and get used to products. To get the best results to give it the time it needs.
- Many custom printed cream boxes claim to do wonders but for something like skin products, you cannot just trust the labels.
Buy from an authentic source
The market is full of new online brands and stores that claim to sell 100% authentic products. To sell their products at any cost, they will go to an extent and lie about their authenticity with full confidence but do not fool yourself for some sugar-coated talk. Always look for the authentic and recommended source to buy skincare products.
If you are not sure about online shops and feel unsatisfied about your purchase, do not go for it in more pressure. If nothing works, visit some shops and talk to the salesgirl for some insight on the matter and get your product that suits best to your skin type because skincare is an expensive hobby.
