However, once a woman reaches the age of 40, the skin will lack WATER more AND more, and collagen will gradually lose with time. At this time, it is recommended that women above 40 years old should not save these 3 “skin care products” conditionally, so that they can be younger.
1. The most important step that cannot be ignored: cream
In the whole set of skin care steps, the most indispensable is the cream.
The most important thing is to make sure that you have a good idea of what you are doing. This feeling is right. Because toner is volatile, the skin can only absorb part of it, and although essence is good to fix skin problems quickly, it does not form an oily protective film on the surface of the skin like creams do. If you don’t apply cream, your skin will still feel dry very quickly.
So the most important role of cream in the whole skin care process is: to form an oily protective film on the surface of the skin to firmly lock in the moisture and the nutrients in the essence. In addition, creams also help to block undesirable substances from the outside environment and keep them from irritating the skin. Different creams also have additional benefits depending on their ingredients, such as repairing small lines on the skin, improving the texture of the skin’s surface, evening out skin tone, removing yellowing and whitening, etc.
The 2 most frequently asked questions about creams.
1. Is there a difference between a cream and a lotion?
The answer is that there is a difference. Although creams and lotions have similar steps in skin care, there are differences. Simply put, the function of a lotion is to hydrate and the function of a cream is to lock in water. Therefore, lotion is more suitable for people under 28 years old, while after 28 years old, skin moisture loss accelerates, you must choose creams.
2. There’s a day cream and a night cream. What’s the difference?
Of course not. The purpose of day creams is to isolate and reduce the damage caused by UV rays and some dust (hence the SPF). And we finish the night cream to sleep, so the night cream is generally the main repair skin barrier, nourishing and other effects, some night cream will also add salicylic acid, kojic acid (inhibit melanin generation) and other “shady” components. Exposure to the sun accelerates the metabolism of keratin and thinens the skin.
So, don’t use day cream and night cream upside down!
