Lotions Vs. Skin Care Creams

There is no absence of skin care creams and lotions in the stores. Name an syndrome, and you will find a multitude skin care creams, lotions and other products for it. As a result of ongoing study and due to ever expanding demand, the number of skin care products seems to be on the increase. Skin care lotions and skin care creams are the most popular forms in which these products are available, and there constantly seems to be a debate on which form is superior?

Well, there is no absolute answer to this. It appears closer to a matter of personal choice. Nevertheless, greasy creams are clearly less popular as compared to the non-greasy (or less greasy) ones. Since the application of skin care creams is easier, they show to be preferred (over lotions) in cases where the skin care product is not to be removed immediately after applying. So, skin care creams seem more popular as moisturisers than as cleansers or toners. For toners, lotions appear to be fancied over skin care creams. There are some skin care creams that acts as toners too, but generally the toners are available in liquid form only. For cleansing, lotions and skin care creams are evenly popular; however, the tilt seems more towards lotions.

Creams are accepted to be most effective in keeping skin moist; ergo, the most popular form of skin care creams is moisturisers. Due to the same reason, a lot of people tend to associate 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 particularly 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. Nevertheless, in situations where skin needs to be washed using a medicine/product, lotion is an exceptional choice. Mostly, the manufacturers too realize this fact, making it easier for you to choose among a lotion and a skin care cream

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

Whatever your choice be (cream or lotion), realizing how to use it effectively, is more important than anything else.
