On the surface, choosing a skin cream for the face seems fairly easy. After all, there are so many options, they are available in all price ranges, and you can buy them online or offline.  However, it is this very fact that makes it difficult! Getting a good skin cream for the face can be a challenge since you need one that suits your skin, fixes your skin problems and gives you the benefits you desire. A skin cream for the face is one of the most important products in a skincare routine since it protects the outer layer of the skin and has a huge impact on your appearance.

Follow the steps listed below and you’ll find the skin cream that’s ‘the one for you!

How to Choose the Right Skin Cream That Suits You?

The first and foremost step in choosing the right skin cream for the face is to know your skin type. We’ve heard this a lot, but many of us still don’t understand its significance! You could be using an amazing cream, but if it’s not meant for your skin type, you won’t see results.

Know your Skin Type

To know your skin type, there are two tests you try at home. The first one is the wash and watches test. Cleanse your skin using a mild cleanser and pat dry. Wait for 30 minutes indoors and then examine your skin. If it appears shiny all over, you have oily skin. If it feels tight, you have dry skin. If your T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) is oily but the rest is tight, you have combination skin. If your skin feels fine, you have normal skin. 

Another test uses blotting sheets or tissue paper. Cleanse your skin using a mild cleanser and pat dry. Wait for 30 minutes and then press a blotting paper to different parts of your face. Hold up the blotting paper to light and examine the oil markings on it. If the sheet appears quite oily, you have oily skin. If the sheet is largely dry, you have dry skin. If the parts pressed on your T-zone appear oily and the rest dry, you have combination skin. If there are just a few small oil patches all over, you probably have normal skin.

Identify your Skin Problems

Once you’ve identified your skin type, it’s time to think about any skin issues you have. These could range from acne, blackheads, flaky skin, wrinkles, or more chronic conditions like eczema. Whatever the case, it’s important to know exactly what you want to fix. 

Knowing your skin problems doesn’t just help you get products that correct them, it also helps you avoid certain ingredients. Sensitive skin types are likely to have more skin issues like rashes and itching and need to be more careful. People with acne will need a non-comedogenic skin cream for the face that doesn’t clog pores.

Using the right skin cream

Once you are armed with information about your skin type and skin issues, it’s time to look for the skin cream that will work for you.  

  • For oily skin, do not skip a moisturizer as it can exacerbate the oiliness. Instead, opt for skin creams with tea tree oil, AHAs, or alpha hydroxy acids which moisturize skin while also controlling excess sebum production. A good choice is the Mamaearth Tea Tree Oil-Free Face Moisturizer with Tea Tree and Salicylic Acid for Acne and Pimples.
  • For mature skin types, creams with rejuvenating ingredients like retinol, Vitamin C and Vitamin E are ideal as they repair damage and boost collagen production. Go for a cream like the Mamaearth Retinol Night Cream with Retinol and Bakuchi for Anti-Aging, Fine Lines, and Wrinkles.
  • If you struggle with pigmentation or acne scars, you’ll need to look for a product that targets these specifically, like the Mamaearth Bye Bye Blemishes Face Cream for Reducing Pigmentation and Blemishes with Mulberry Extract and Vitamin C.
  • For dry to normal skin, choose a thicker skin cream like Ubtan face cream with ingredients like saffron, turmeric, and other natural ingredients that will grab moisture and lock it in to prevent water loss from the skin. 

No matter what your skin type is, there is the right skin cream for everyone at Mamaearth. For any product to show successful results, it is important to maintain a regime for at least 3 – 6 months. 

Important Note: As with all our products, we recommend that you carry out a patch test to eliminate the possibility of any allergy or adverse reaction. Mamaearth’s products are completely free from any nasties, chemicals and toxins. It is proud to have India’s first Made Safe certification.
