Lotions Vs. Skin Care Creams

There is no slim pickings of skin care creams and lotions in the market. Name an condition, and you will find hundreds of skin care creams, lotions and other products for it. As a result of continuing study and due to ever enlarging demand, the collection of skin care products appears to be on the incline. Skin care lotions and skin care creams are the much popular methods in which these products are obtainable, and there continually seems to be a debate on which form is better?

Well, there is no precise answer to this. It seems more like a matter of personal preference. However, greasy creams are assuredly less popular as compared to the non-greasy (or less greasy) ones. Since the application of skin care creams is simpler, they appear to be liked (over lotions) in cases where the skin care product is not to be removed promptly after application. So, skin care creams seem more popular as moisturisers than as cleansers or toners. For toners, lotions appear to be chosen over skin care creams. There are some skin care creams that acts as toners too, but usually the toners are obtainable in liquid form only. For cleaning, lotions and skin care creams are equally popular; nevertheless, the tilt seems more towards lotions.

Creams are known to be most effective in keeping skin moist; therefore, the most popular form of skin care creams is moisturisers. For to the same reason, a lot of people tend to accompany skin care creams with dry and sensitive skin. Though it is true to a certain extent, skin care creams are not used only for dry skin, they are also used for making products for oily skin e.g. vitamin A creams and sulphur creams that help reduce the rate of sebum production.

Skin care creams are also used for products that help skin disorders especially for disorders that require the application of product over a small localised area. This is again due to the fact that skin care creams are easier to apply (without wastage) on the affected area. However, in cases where skin needs to be washed using a medicine/product, lotion is a better choice. Mostly, the manufacturers too realize this fact, making it easier for you to choose from a lotion and a skin care cream

Eye-creams and anti-ageing creams are other examples where skin care cream is preferred over its lotion counterpart.

Whichever your choice be (cream or lotion), understanding how to use it efficiently, is more important than anything else.
