WHAT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOISTURIZING CREAM AND LOTION
When it comes to our skin, we all want soft, comfortable, hydrated skin. There are so many products on the market nowadays that it can be hard to know which ones to choose. The first step in choosing a moisturizer is understanding your skin type and what it needs. After that, you can decide if a cream or a lotion texture is best suited for you. But what is the difference between a lotion and a moisturizing cream?
Lotions have a higher water percentage and tend to be lightweight. Since they have a higher water percentage they are more easily absorbed into the skin and never have a greasy texture on the skin. They are best suited for those with normal skin.
Moisturizing creams on the other hand are a blend of oil and water and tend to be richer in texture. They have a thicker consistency and are best suited for those with dry skin.
Both do a great job of hydrating the skin, which is why we have developed both types of moisturizers so that there is something for everyone!
