Which is Best For Your Skin: Lotion, Cream, Gel, Serum or Liquid?

Lotion, cream, gel, serum, liquid - which one is best for your skin? With so many products promising smooth, wrinkle-free skin, how do you know what works for your skin and why? This is a vitally important question, and the answer isn’t difficult to find. Discover what works well for your skin - and why - below.

The most important step before choosing products for the face is to know your skin type. That gives you the wisdom you need to achieve and sustain healthy, beautiful skin. When you know your skin's type, you have the ability to choose products that are both consistently correct, and will also offer a multitude of long-term benefits for your skin.

Remember, products formulated in different textures / consistencies do not work well for every skin type. For instance, if your skin is dry, you would want to use a heavier, creamier moisturizer. Heavier moisturizers work wonders for dry skin because they're composed of natural plant oils and humectants. Keep in mind that dry skin is screaming for extra hydration, and thicker lotions and creams have added oils and lipids to prevent moisture loss and dehydration, thus minimizing dry skin.

On the other hand, someone with combination skin would benefit from products light in weight such as a liquid moisturizer, serum, gel, or a weightless lotion. The examples listed above are lighter in weight yet still possess the ability to supply the skin with essential nutrients and potent antioxidants without the heaviness.

For women with oily skin, a moisturizer in any form may NOT be needed. Because your androgens, while completely natural, stimulate too much oil, a moisturizer may not benefit your skin. However, if you feel that you need a moisturizer, seek products that are in liquid, gel, or serum form and apply at night after cleansing and toning. Using products with the lighter consistencies mentioned above will prevent clogged pores and minimizes the likeliness of adult acne.

Keep in mind that you hold the cards when it comes to the health and vitality of your skin, and knowing your skin type is the first step. With that knowledge you have the ability to choose the absolute best products for your skin. You will be able to decipher truth from fiction, and quickly solve common skin care problems such as discoloration and sensitivity.
