If you are having trouble with aging or dim, dry, or red and irritated skin, many turn to skincare lotions and creams. There are different reasons for choosing a lotion vs. a cream. There are also alternative treatments to the standard lotions and creams that you might want to try if those simple remedies are not able to help your skin.

There is no dearth of skin care creams and lotions on the market these days. Name a skin-related ailment, and you will find hundreds of skin care creams, lotions and other products for it. As a result of ongoing research and due to ever increasing 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 always seems to be a debate on which form is better?

Well, there is no definitive answer to this. It seems more like a matter of personal choice. However, greasy creams are less popular compared to the non-greasy (or less greasy) ones. Since the application of skin care creams is easier, they seem to be preferred (over lotions) in cases where the skin care product is not to be removed immediately after application. Skin care creams seem more popular as moisturizers than as cleansers or toners. For toners, lotions seem to be preferred over skin care creams. There are some skin care creams that act as toners too, but generally the toners are available in liquid form only. For cleansing, lotions and skin care creams are equally popular; however, the tilt seems more toward lotions.

Skin Care Creams

Creams are known to be most effective in keeping skin moist; hence, the most popular form of skin care creams is moisturizers. People tend to associate skin care creams with dry and sensitive skin. Though this 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 cater to skin disorders especially for disorders that require the application of product over a small localized area. This is due to the fact that skin care creams are easier to apply (without wasting the expensive product) on the affected area. However, in cases where skin needs to be washed using a medicine/product, lotion is a better choice. Eye-creams and anti-ageing creams are other examples where skin care cream is preferred over its lotion counterpart.

Whatever your choice is (cream or lotion), knowing how to use it effectively, is more important than anything else. Be sure to use clean hands or a clean cloth. You do not want to transfer the oils and dirt from your hands on to your skin.
