In this review we will talk about professional face creams that can not just give a short-term effect, as mass-market products do, but truly transform the skin, working from the inside.

What qualities are characteristic of a professional cream?

Professional creams are difficult to find on the open market, as they are intended for salons and cosmetologists. Before you get the treasured jar at home, you should pay attention to a number of factors:

  • Application.
    Such creams are created for people who have undergone special training and understand the characteristics and application techniques. What gives a wonderful effect in the salon, if the rules of use are not followed, can be harmful, since professional skincare cosmetics have a high concentration of active substances (for example, acids), for the positive operation of which a number of rules must be followed.
  • Package.
    This type of cosmetics is often packaged in large-volume containers, since large consumption is expected. It is impossible to use so much cream at home. But the cream is a product for daily use, so it’s easier to find small-volume packaging.
  • Individual selection.
    Professional lines are distinguished by the fact that they are developed for specific requests, and therefore are selected for a specific client.
  • Smell.
    The aroma of the cream should be subtle and pleasant, as it is formed by adding natural ingredients, most often oils. Artificial fragrances are not allowed.
  • Storage conditions.
    Professional products have increased requirements for storage and transportation. Especially regarding temperature, since overheating can lead to loss of product performance.
  • Hypoallergenic.
    The cream cannot contain questionable components that are highly allergenic.
  • Compound.
    The composition is dominated by natural ingredients, including plant extracts, balms, and vitamins. The development and thorough testing of the composition is carried out in laboratories, and checks are also carried out at every stage of production, from the procurement of raw materials to samples of the final product.
  • Certification.
    Creams are constantly undergoing clinical trials, improved and certified, as indicated on the packaging and on the brand’s official website. Here it is important to remember the risk of buying a fake, so you should check not only the product for a certificate, but also the store for integrity.

Despite its “salon” purpose, a professional cream can and should be purchased for home use, but this should only be done in consultation with a cosmetologist in order to minimize the risk of unpleasant consequences.

As for the purpose, the choice here is especially wide:

  • Moisturizing.
  • Nutritious.
  • With UV protection.
  • With a lifting effect.
  • Restoring (regenerating).
  • Anti-aging.
  • For problematic skin.
  • Matting.
  • Fillers (fill in wrinkles, smoothing them out).
  • Vibes (have a light consistency).

Each of these types has its own strengths that work in a given situation.

The best creams for problem skin

In conjunction with hyaluronic acid, raspberry extract and birch sap, it accelerates the restoration of damaged tissue, stimulates the protective functions of the skin and controls the functioning of the sebaceous glands.

Jurassic Spa, acne cream concentrate Normalizing

VICHY, cream for problem skin “Normaderm 24 moisturizing”

What cream can be considered good?

Based on my experience and personal preferences, I have developed a number of rules by which I myself determine whether I will use any cream or whether it is not worth spending my time and money on it.

  • I almost never use creams with silicones in their composition (demithicone and their derivatives) - yes, they can give a good visual effect immediately after application, but over the long term this all inevitably leads to clogged pores and general “skin fatigue.” In addition, all my decorative cosmetics simply roll off from the silicone cream. There are silicone creams in my selection, but they don’t give me such negative effects.
  • I like light and quickly absorbed creamy textures that immediately feel comfortable on the skin.
  • I love multi-component natural or near-natural formulations.
  • I try to avoid creams with cheap and frankly harmful components in their composition (petroleum products, paraffin, alcohol are in the forefront).
  • SPF in a day cream is , in my opinion, overkill. Anyway, I use either a special protective cream with SPF, bb-, foundation or mineral powder.
  • I like the trend with probiotic-based creams and my skin also likes it, so there are two representatives of this cosmetic trend in my rating.

My rating is based on my own many years of user and blogger experience, where I bought each of the jars I recommended more than once or twice.

I tried dozens of different face creams from different categories - from creams from the Svoboda factory for 50 rubles, to super luxury, where the cost of a jar of cream can be comparable to someone’s salary.

I am sharing my subjective but impartial opinion.

The best creams for normal skin

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream, SPF 30

Do you think caring for normal skin means washing your face after sleep and applying SPF? You are wrong!

Compositions and components

A good moisturizer should have the appropriate ingredients. They can be divided into four groups:

  • lipids;
  • emollients;
  • moisturizing components;
  • substances that form a film.

There are substances that can immediately belong to several groups and perform more than two functions simultaneously.

Components that serve as protection against moisture evaporation:

  • synthetic silicones;
  • petrolatum;
  • mineral oils;
  • linolin;

Moisturizing components play a major role. They not only retain moisture in the body, but regulate its release in the body itself. An example of such components:

  • honey;
  • glycerol;
  • hyaluronic acid;
  • fruit acids;
  • lactic acids;
  • collagen;
  • elastin;
  • panthenol;
  • plant extracts.

Emollients are substances that directly work with the upper layer of the epidermis. They restore and soften the surface of the face.

  • linolenic acid;
  • lanolin;
  • essential oils;
  • mineral oils;
  • ceramides;
  • squalane;
  • petrolatum.

Some of the above components can clog pores.

Lipids are substances that help normalize lipid balance in the body and protect the skin from the effects of external environmental factors.

  • lecithin;
  • lanolin;
  • ceramides;
  • natural wax;
  • olive, apricot, peach and soybean oils;
  • Shea Butter.

Lipids can also clog pores, as can emollients.

In addition to these four groups, moisturizer contains additional substances. They also have a beneficial effect on the condition of the epidermis. These are vitamins: A, B, B5, C, extracts of chamomile, calendula, sage, aloe. As well as purified thermal water and antioxidants. You can find out about masks with vitamin C and other components in the article.

A good cream that does not contain substances that are harmful or dangerous to the skin. However, this is rare, and the following components can often be found in moisturizing creams:

  • benzocaine – has a bad effect on the nervous system;
  • aluminum acetate – very drying and can cause peeling;
  • parabens – allergen;
  • propylene glycol is an irritant component.

But, despite the fact that many moisturizing creams contain harmful components, a large number of positive effects on the epidermis can be identified. Namely:

  • softens the skin;
  • slows down the aging process;
  • maintains firmness and elasticity;
  • evens out facial tone;
  • normalizes PH levels;
  • promotes rapid cell regeneration.

As for side effects and disadvantages, there are none. But this is if the product is chosen correctly, with all the features of this type of epidermis.

Otherwise, the following unpleasant moments may arise:

  • clogging of pores;
  • itching;
  • skin irritation;
  • inflammation;
  • rashes.

Types of wrinkles

Before moving directly to the review of the best creams, it is worth understanding the types of wrinkles and the reasons for their formation. This will help you take a fresh look at the choice of cosmetics and the need for regular care procedures.

What causes wrinkles to appear?

Photo: https://pexels.com/ru-ru/photo/5257495/
There are several reasons:

  • aging. The most obvious factor. With age, collagen synthesis decreases, the skin becomes less elastic;
  • dermatoheliosis. Simply put, photoaging, which occurs due to excessive tanning;
  • sudden change in weight. Wrinkles often occur in women who have dramatically lost weight and got rid of significant excess weight;
  • Unhealthy Lifestyle. Nicotine addiction, alcohol abuse, poor sleep - all this impairs blood flow in the skin and worsens its condition;
  • lively facial expressions. Deep expression wrinkles occur in those people who are accustomed to often frowning, raising their eyebrows, squinting and even smiling;
  • skin diseases. Some dermatological diseases lead to dry skin and decreased turgor;
  • structural features of the skull. Wrinkles on the face and neck occur in people, for example, with an incorrect bite.

According to the degree of severity, skin folds can be divided into superficial and deep. The first ones can occur at a young age, but they are easier to deal with. The reasons for its appearance are dry skin, weight loss, improper care. Deep wrinkles occur with age. And it is impossible to get rid of them through cosmetic products alone.

And yet, you shouldn’t give up and sadly watch age-related changes on your skin. You have the power to delay old age a little and delay the appearance of superficial and deep wrinkles. You need to choose the right anti-wrinkle cream, paying attention to the active ingredients in the composition.

The best night creams

The fact is that it has the power to stimulate the activity of genes responsible for night recovery. At the same time, Génifique increases the skin's resistance to external factors. Ideal for those who constantly do not get enough sleep.

Composition of anti-aging cream

Anti-aging cosmetics should include several of the following components:

  • Hyaluronic acid helps the skin stay firm.
  • Vitamins A, E, PP, C accelerate cell regeneration.
  • Hydroxy acids remove dead skin particles.
  • Coenzyme Q10 reduces the visibility of wrinkles and reduces their appearance.

We choose Cellular Water for its powerful anti-aging effect, elastic and soft skin and a rested appearance. Antioxidant cream successfully fights “enemies”, including free radicals, toxins and signs of aging. Well, we don’t mind!

How to choose

In order for the product to give quick results, you need not only to study the composition, but also to look at its other characteristics. To choose the right cream, you need to look at your skin type and age category.

By age

After 25 years, the aging process begins. The skin slowly fades and needs careful and thorough care. It is worth noting that the older the girl, the more effective the cream she needs. Therefore, you need to consider your age, as it also affects the choice of product. You can find out how to choose a face cream after 25 here.

By skin type

Each skin type has its own individual characteristics. When choosing a product, you need to pay attention to what skin it is intended for. For example, for dry and dehydrated skin types you need thorough moisturizing, for oily skin - a mattifying effect. For problematic dermis - an anti-inflammatory effect, and for sensitive dermis - protective and antioxidant properties.

The best face creams after 25 years are the ones that work. And their effectiveness is determined not by price and brand name, but by composition. Of course, the needs of each girl’s skin are individual, so it is impossible to accurately answer the question of which cream is better. The product must be selected taking into account the skin type and its characteristics, as well as the problems that the product should solve. However, there are active ingredients that, according to cosmetologists, bring the most benefits at this age, providing the skin with the necessary hydration and protection. This:

  • vitamins A, E, C, bioflavonoids - are powerful antioxidants that neutralize the negative effects of free radicals and slow down the aging process;
  • allantoin – has a moisturizing and soothing effect;
  • panthenol – moisturizes, protects from aggressive sun rays;
  • bisobolol – softens, eliminates inflammation;
  • azulene – a soothing, healing and nourishing component obtained from plant materials;
  • lactic acid – exfoliant (exfoliates dead skin cells of the epidermis), natural moisturizer;
  • salicylic acid – effectively cleanses pores and helps fight acne, has an anti-inflammatory effect;
  • hyaluronic acid – moisturizes, prevents moisture loss from cells;
  • sorbitol – enhances the moisturizing properties of other components;
  • sun protection factors (zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone) – it is desirable that the protection is at least SPF-15.

It is important to pay attention to excipients. Good cosmetics should not contain formaldehyde - harmful components that destroy the skin, and parabens (in extreme cases, their content should not exceed 0.3%). You shouldn’t expect any beneficial effects from mineral oils and glucols either, so it’s better to have as little of them in the cream as possible, or not at all.

We have highlighted only a few popular and high-quality brands of creams. But there are many more cosmetic products. It’s up to you to decide which cosmetics for facial care will be the best option. It all depends on the type of skin, its characteristics and vagaries. Dry skin needs maximum hydration, and a product for oily skin should normalize the functioning of the sebaceous glands and have a mattifying effect. To care for healthy skin, you can choose a good cosmetic day face cream. If you have sufficient financial resources, it is better to give preference to luxury cosmetics; if not, budget category products are quite suitable. If your skin is problematic, prone to rashes, pigmentation or peeling, it is better to choose the appropriate pharmacy cream with the help of a cosmetologist.
