Every woman desires a clear even-tone face. Unfortunately this is not the case. Several women are dealing with skin issues ranging from acne, spots, pimples and so on. The market is responding to this need by producing all sorts of facial creams, each promising to be the solution. But how safe are these creams?
It is important to note that not all facial creams are compatible with every skin type. Some may be only for the face while others can also be applied to the neck and body. How much information do you have on the cream that you’re using? Does the manufacturer give specifications on how to use it?
Different creams also have different ingredients. Since skin types are different, some people may develop allergic reactions to certain ingredients. For a cream bought over the counter, it should first be rubbed to a small portion of the skin to access the reaction. If irritation occurs on that part of the skin, then the cream should be avoided all together. The best approach however is to consult a dermatologist who will first examine the skin before prescribing a suitable facial cream.
Most creams only address the healing of the skin and removal of the scars. Others however go a notch higher to add extra ingredients like vitamin A which prevents the skin conditions from occurring again. Again there are those which work as part of a broader treatment method. This way they are able to clear the scars/pimples completely and also deal with the discoloration effect. A certain type of bleach is often combined with a cream if the darkish spots are to be eliminated completely.
The suitability of a facial cream is normally analyzed by examining the following 6 factors:
- Effectiveness – Whether the cream is able to achieve significant results in reducing or even eliminating not only the pimples/scars but also the resistant marks left behind by the condition.
- Chemical composition – Are the ingredients right for the skin condition and are they in the right proportions?
- Duration of operation – The cream should take a reasonably short time to provide a notable improvement on the skin.
- Safety of the product – the cream should not contain harsh or corrosive components that will result in adverse side effects or even end up worsening the situation.
- Quality – The cream should be worth your attention and money in relation to its strength, potential and price.
- Long term effects – Some creams are only effective for a while, and then the skin conditions come back with renewed force. Others work but leave the skin with undesirable effects like excessive dryness and premature aging.
Every beauty shop now provides a wide range of facial creams. Most of them however leave a lot to be desired. Creams that have been prescribed by the doctor have been found to have better results than those bought over the counter. Very cheap creams also end up with negative or no results. Many people have been left looking horrible courtesy of a facial cream gone wrong. Do not be one of them, be careful of what you buy.
