How to understand if a cream is right for you – instructions

But for dry or prone to dryness, you should choose dense, fatty creams.
Determine the degree of oily cream. Take a little cream and rub between the thumb and forefinger, feel how quickly the fingers began to feel each other. The faster this happened, the lower the fat content of the cream. Greasy cream is required for dry and aging skin..
Tactile sensations. If possible, try a drop of cream on your forearm and lightly rub it. Evaluate if the cream spreads well over the skin.
Estimate the rate of absorption of the cream. The night cream should be absorbed more slowly than the day, but ideally, both should be completely absorbed and not leave a feeling of heaviness due to increased fat content, film or tightness. A suitable cream does not require repeated application. It brings a sense of comfort the first time..
Listen to the sensations on the skin after 20-30 minutes: if there is tingling, pinching, itching or burning, the skin does not redden under the cream, or blisters, spots or streaks of irritation appear. You should like the feeling on the skin! If you have such symptoms, then immediately wash off the cream and do not use it anymore, as this can lead to negative consequences.
