Achieving a radiant and glowing complexion is a beauty goal shared by many, and selecting the correct face cream plays a pivotal role in this pursuit. The market is brimming with various skincare products, each claiming to offer the coveted luminosity. To help you navigate this sea of choices, we explore the key ingredients contributing to glowing skin and recommend some of the best face creams to achieve that coveted radiance.

What Is Facial Cream?

Facial cream is an indispensable product in skin care products. It has the same effect as lotion. Its function cover the skin’s surface to form a protective film.

It can effectively replenish and lock in moisture. It can also block harmful substances in the air, repair fine lines on the skin, and deeply activate the skin.

What Is The Difference Between Cream And Lotion?

What Is The Difference Between Cream And Lotion?

Creams and lotions are the same thing, but they are in different states. Although their appearance is different, they are essentially the same thing. Both creams and lotions can be made into moisturizing or refreshing versions. And in terms of manufacturing, there is absolutely no manufacturing rule that the ingredients of facial cream are better than those of lotion. The shape and moisturizing degree have nothing to do with each other. The change in the shape of the cream is just a process issue.

What Is The Difference Between Day Cream And Night Cream?

The Difference Between Day Cream And Night Cream

1. Day Cream – Protection, Isolation

The functions of day cream are divided into different products. In addition to repairing, moisturizing, anti-wrinkle, and skin tightening, the most prominent feature is that it can protect the skin from damage caused by the environment (such as ultraviolet rays and air pollution). Judging from the ingredients of day creams currently on the market, most stay within the protective and isolation functions of day creams because most of these products contain SPF or UV filters, which are suitable for use before going out during the day.

2. Night Cream – Repair and Nourish

Deeply moisturizing night cream, full-effect repairing night cream, and the good names of various night creams are enough to illustrate the multi-functional functions of night creams. They have the tasks of repairing, nourishing, whitening, etc.

Because it is designed according to the skin condition when sleeping at night, the nourishment and concentration of ingredients are more “nutritious” and finer than day cream, making it easy for the skin to absorb fully. It can quickly repair tired skin at night, eliminate fatigue, and make the skin look more tired. Youthful skin that feels soft, smooth, and tender returns.

How To Use Facial Cream Correctly

After conditioning your skin with lotion, apply the cream on five parts of the face: cheeks, forehead, above the nose, and chin, and then spread it gently little by little.

This puts less burden on the skin and applies it evenly to the entire face. In areas with severe dryness, you can first use a lotion layer and then layer the cream for better results.
