How To Tell If a Face Cream Will be Good For Your Skin

There are so many new skin care products on the market that it can be difficult to tell whether a face cream will be good for your skin. With all of the advances and new miracle ingredients, you may wonder whether or not the products will help you get the skin you want.

There are a few ways to judge how safe and effective a face cream will be, including checking key ingredients you want, and a few that you should avoid. A good rule of thumb is products labeled as organic are a better bet than chemical products full of synthetic additives. The ingredients to avoid are parabens, phthalates, sodium laureth sulphate and any artificial colors or fragrances. Parabens are preservatives, phthalates make liquid products more pourable, sodium laureth sulphate is a foaming agent and artificial colors and fragrances are just what their names suggest.

Some key terms you want in your products include antioxidants to protect and heal your skin, collagen from kelp extract to firm your skin and make it look younger, and natural moisturizers such as shea or avocado butters. All of these ingredients are excellent ways for you to feed and nourish your skin safely and naturally.

There may be other ingredients which claim to help your skin with specific issues. The best advice is to do your research into the safety and effectiveness of these ingredients. Make sure that any product you do buy uses ingredients from natural sources. After all, if it is something you won’t eat, you shouldn’t be putting it on your skin and having it absorbed into your system.

Face cream, whether it is organic or a mix of natural and synthetic ingredients should help improve your appearance. Any signs of redness, tightness or irritation mean it is a product best left on the shelf. Taking the time to look into the products you are using can save you time, money and good health down the road.
