Hand cream or balm: what to choose?
Hand skin needs nutrition and moisture year round because regular contact with household chemicals and the fact that you might not wear gloves in the winter can harm hand skin. Cosmetology offers for these cases two types of cosmetics: hand cream and balm. Both products soften and moisturize the skin, but they differ in composition and strength of effects.
What does hand cream consist of and how does it work
Hand cream, as well as face cream and body cream, is an emulsion of oils in water or water in oil. Useful microparticles are uniformly dissolved in the base so that the cells get an equal set of useful substances.
There are three types of hand cream in the Ceano Cosmetics line:
- MOISTURIZING cream containing avocado and coconut oils for dry skin;
- PROTECTIVE cream containing mango oil and chamomile extract for damaged skin;
- NUTRITIOUS cream containing abyssinian and macadamia oils for skin rejuvenation.
They have one thing in common: they should be used regularly. Water in the composition provides dosed nutrition of cells with active ingredients. The result will continue for a long time if you use any cosmetic daily.
What makes balm different from hand cream
Balm is a concentrated blend of natural plant oils, essential oils with antioxidants, and extracts. There is no water in it. The light texture of the balm allows useful components to easily enter the cells, saturating them with nutrients.
The hand, face, body balms are considered an emergency cosmetic product with an instant surface effect. Even a drop of balm noticeably softens weathered and dry skin. However, the epidermis needs external protection against moisture loss, without which the effect will not continue. This protection provides only cream.
Choice based on age
In the cosmetics bag of women over 25 there should be both hand care products. So daily morning self-massage of hands, palms, fingers with moisturizing or protective cream Ceano Cosmetics, and the evening one with nutritious cream, should become a habit. Then the hands will stop aging.
Women under 25 can use only one product. Those who do not have the feeling of tightness and dryness of the skin in the summer and in the off-season can use only a light balm. But in the winter it is better to use a protective cream without anti-aging supplements in the composition. It is very important to pay attention to the label, shelf life, active ingredients, the purpose of the product. Only up-to-date and properly selected care cosmetics is useful.
