What should a good moisturising face cream look like?

Facial skin is exposed every day to stimuli that can alter the delicate balance of the skin barrier: the sun, wind, cold, humidity, pollution, active and passive smoking, at times even contact with allergenic or irritant substances (such as those contained in certain cosmetic products). Even continued use of a mask can cause irritation due to rubbing and occlusion.

Moisturizer cream for face: what to know

A face cream that respects the natural balance of the skin should be free from ingredients that could provoke an allergic reaction or sensitisation, such as:

  • allergens contained in fragrances
  • preservatives that can cause allergic reactions
  • alcohol

These ingredients must be avoided, especially in the case of hyperactive, allergic sensitive skin or skin with an atopic tendency.

But it’s not enough to know what not to do: to preserve the wellbeing of your facial skin, you ideally need to treat it with an active emollient treatment that will help to repair the skin barrier, protect it from environmental stressors, and help it remain balanced over time. To do so, its formula should include epidermal lipids that are physiologically present in the skin:


How to choose the best moisturizer cream for face?

Dry or very dry skin tends to itch and become irritated, and therefore requires specific treatment. To restore its comfort, use a moisturising face cream that’s also nourishing and emollient, rich in active ingredients such as shea butter and squalene or soothing ingredients such as Palmitamide MEA. And, of course, the 3 lipids mentioned above.


What is the best moisturizer for dry skin?

In cases of combination or oily skin, the moisturizing face cream should have an oil free, light, and rapidly absorbing texture. To moisturise the face thoroughly, it should contain high-tech actives such as hyaluronic acid with a high molecular weight. To restore the skin barrier, on the other hand, it should contain ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids. It’s important that it’s neither occlusive nor comedogenic.
