When choosing a day or night cream you should pay attention to the ingredients. They determine whether the cream will help your dry skin or not. That doesn’t mean you have to know everything about all the possible ingredients, but there are a few essential components that give you added assurance that a skincare product is likely to be effective.
Select a formula whose ingredients have been scientifically proven to have a positive effect on dry skin:
Even if they state that they are suitable for a dry or sensitive skin, many creams contain ingredients that make the problem worse or counteract the beneficial properties of the good ingredients. We are talking about alcohol (not the ‘good’, fatty alcohols but denatured alcohol and isopropyl alcohol) and fragrances, including the fragrant oils of lavender, rose, lemon and mint. Many of these substances are considered to be natural or organic solutions for skin problems but they can cause irritation and inflammation.
If, even with this information, you are still having trouble choosing the right day or night cream, try one of the creams from Paula’s Choice. We have developed these especially for your skin type. These creams have great formulas that will help you to achieve that soft smooth skin you have always wanted.
