Best moisturiser: how to choose it? 5 of the best

Finding the best facial moisturiser may seem like an impossible task. Here is what normally happens: you feel lost in front of the huge shelves of a supermarket or in front of a small showcase in a perfumery or in front of a computer screen. Most often you end up making the wrong choice when it comes to moisturiser. This is because you either get lured from the pack or the price and often you buy without even looking the ingredients.

In reality, choosing a moisturiser is not difficult. It's sufficient to follow some basic rules. Continue the reading to find out and to know which are the face creams that we prefer GlamourFlare.

The 5 rules for choosing the best moisturiser

5) Beware of the perfume

The scent is one of the most important allergens, so its concentration in the cream also determines its irritability. The secret is to look among the listed ingredients and see if there is an element called perfume or fragrance, more commonly. However, you should not be discouraged by the presence of perfume because even its concentration counts. In fact, a low concentration of perfume does not have the same negative effects.

How to find out the concentration of perfume? Just smell the fragrance of the cream to determine the amount of perfume, if the fragrance is delicate, probably the concentration will be minimal.

4) Beware of parabens

Parabens have been used in the cosmetic industry since the mid-40s with bactericidal and fungicidal function. They derive from para-hydroxybenzoic and can be chemical or vegetable. Their action is important to prevent the formation of bacteria, fungi and other harmful substances. The problem is that hypotheses have been put forward that there is a correlation between parabens and cancer, especially breast cancer. Other hypotheses discuss the possibility of these parabens to interfere in the hormonal system.

3) Pay attention to the main ingredients

Even if reading the list of ingredients may seem like a long and complex task. A quick look at the main ingredients seems more achievable. In particular, all plant derivatives indicate a good cream, but also Vitamins C, B, E, on a concentration of at least 1%.
Probably, if the product is really good and consists of large quantities of natural ingredients and quality, you will be able to see some words on the front of the package.

2) Pay attention to the price

Price is not always a good indicator of quality, so be careful! The most expensive moisturisers do not necessarily have an enhanced action. So it remains very important to check the ingredients of the product, sometimes even low-cost creams can be made with quality ingredients and processes.

1) Attention to your skin type

The last thing to analyse is not the cream itself, but your skin. Yes, every type of skin has a more suitable face cream. For example, dry skin will require a moisturising cream, while fat ones will have a cream that is not greasy and highly purifying.

Now, know all the tricks to select the best facial cream that best suits your needs.
