Face lotion for sensitive skin

The fundamental purpose of face lotions and moisturizers is to make the skin more relaxed and moisturized by helping the skin preserve the water. In general, most of the face lotions available are able achieve that decently. However, most of the producers that state that their face lotions can decrease or remove wrinkles, or even go deep into the skin to have effects from the inside out are mostly overstated or not true. Even though they may have a temporary effect, it will not help in the long run.

One of the main ingredients present in skin care lotions is sunscreen. Experts say that rays coming from the sun are one of the primary causes of early aging. Most of them will suggest that if you apply a face lotion that does not have sunscreen listed in the ingredients, you should apply a separate sunscreen. Aside from sunscreen, retinol and retinyl palmitate have very useful effects on the skin, like enhancing the epidermal thickness which makes the skin appear to be youthful and revitalized.

However, packaging and storage also has a significant effect in how the ingredients work. For example, retinol can turn out to be highly unstable when exposed to air and light. This means that it will lose its effectiveness over time as it is numerously opened, or if it is packaged in a transparent container.

There are countless facial skin care products available in the market. Even though there are many high-quality brands, some experts believe that a few low-ended brands are just as good. There are also many different types of skin care lotions such as dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, etc.

The best facial moisturizers, as chosen by numerous experts and users alike, are Aveeno and Clinique. This is preferred over most other brands as they provide excellent service on your skin as well as cost lower than other high-ended face lotions. Also, individuals who have sensitive skin must be careful in choosing a face lotion, as the wrong choice may lead to irritation. However, most lotions designed for sensitive skin may contain a few ingredients that could cause irritation. But it will cause less when compared to other lotions and moisturizers.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 is considered to be the best facial lotion for those with sensitive skin. This skin care product will help you ease the irritation felt by your skin as well as lessen the redness of your skin. One of its best features is the protection it provides against the broad range of UV rays coming from the sun, but some suggest that using zinc oxide or titanium oxide would have been a better choice as it provides milder protection against UV rays. Many people think that the absence of fragrance from Aveeno’s sensitive skin lotion to be a disadvantage. However, fragrant lotions usually irritate sensitive skin. A 4 oz. bottle of Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer will cost nearly $17.

Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer is another option for people with sensitive or dry skin, though it usually goes unnoticed. The first thing you will notice about this facial lotion that it costs more than other skin care lotions, with prices being about $42.50 for 1.7 oz. However, Clinique states that this lotion contains eight antioxidants; all of which contribute towards lessening irritation. They are also designed so that some of that have their effects immediately, while others show results in the long run.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is the final facial lotion being reviewed. This is a rather simple lotion but it contains a calm facial moisturizer. The lotion comprises of nutrients such as ceramides, glycerin and cholesterols. These ingredients are extremely beneficial when it comes to returning the health of the skin as well as maintaining its defenses against further damage. One fact is that Cerave received a perfect five rating in Drugstore.com, mostly because of its ability to relax the skin, as well as the ability to improve performance and show greater results as the lotion is gradually applied on a daily basis. This lotion can be used on both the face as well as the body.

People with sensitive skin have to be very careful about the products they wear on their faces. They have to be very fussy while choosing their facial lotions as an unsuitable lotion will only cause further irritation and frustration. In most of the cases, simply reading the label is not enough as they are usually not true. It is best to research a bit on the internet before buying such skin care products, as there is abundant information; most of which is true.
