|Due to the sheer number of skincare products on the market with different consistencies, the average consumer |
is often confused when selecting the most suitable product.
In this issue, we will provide you with some tools to help you make the best selection.
|The most important factors in determining if you should select a Serum or Cream are your skin type, |
weather, and your living environment.
Cream-based skincare is most suitable for people with dryer skin since they lack moisture and are most prone to tightness
and peeling. Reinforcing skincare with cream-based products will help restore sebum and moisture to the skin, thereby
delaying the speed at which moisture escapes from the skin.
People with combination skin and those who live in island or humid environments can also use cream-based skincare
during seasonal changes. You can reinforce your hydrating efforts by simply applying cream based products to areas
prone to dryness and peeling. People who work in air-conditioned areas can also reinforce their skincare with
cream-based products to protect skin from moisture loss.
Oily and/or acne prone skin are prone to oil and have slower renewal cycles.
If you use cream-based products with high oil content, it can cause your pores to become clogged, thereby increasing
occurrence of pimples or acne. For people with oil or acne prone skin, we would recommend that you use oil-free
serums or lotions with lighter consistencies to lock in moisture.
