How creams and gel creams with antioxidants benefit skin
Moisturizing should be a part of your daily skin care no matter what type of skin you have. Even the oiliest skin needs to be hydrated and restored to function properly. Without water and some oils your skin may become parched and rough to the touch. A great way to ensure that your skin looks and feels healthy is by using moisturizer in the form of creams or gel-creams. If you use products formulated with antioxidants you can also help protect your skin from free radicals and improve how your complexion looks. Find out more about how creams and gel-creams can give you glowing skin below.
For All Skin Types
Creams, the more common form of moisturizer, can be formulated to nourish any skin type. Moisturizers that come in cream form typically contain humectants, emollients or lipids that are absorbed by your skin and can make it feel hydrated. Creams can vary in consistency but typically are on the oilier or heavier side than gel creams or lotions. Creams can help soften rough skin, help alleviate dryness and when they are formulated with SPF, protect your skin from the sun. Look for a moisturizer formulated with antioxidants to address your skin concerns. We recommend Garnier Moisture Bomb The Antioxidant Super Moisturizer SPF 30, formulated with an antioxidant complex that contains goji berry, pomegranate, brightening Vitamin C and moisturizing Vitamin E.
For Fine Lines and Wrinkles
We recommend a cream formulated with rice peptides and pro-retinol to address the concerns that go along with aging skin. Garnier SkinActive Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream is a nourishing formula made to help skin appear more youthful. It can help skin look firmer and can lessen the appearance of fine lines. Use this if you want to wake up with rested, energized and smooth skin.
For Oily Skin
Gel-creams are particularly effective on oilier skin types as they don’t introduce more oil to skin. gel-creams differ from creams because they are largely water-based and have a light consistency. They are quickly absorbed by skin due to their high water content and can hydrate and plump the appearance of skin.
For Dry Skin
Just because you don’t have oily skin doesn’t mean you can’t use a gel-cream. Look for a gel-cream that’s specifically formulated for your skin type, like Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream for Dry Skin which is made to soothe dry skin with antioxidant fruit water and other nourishing ingredients. Once applied to the skin, this gel-cream can help alleviate skin roughness, dullness and can make your skin look smoother. Dry skin typically has a weakened barrier function and this gel cream helps to restore it.
