Difference between moisturizing cream and anti-aging cream

What difference is there between a moisturizer and an anti-aging cream?

Is it the same a moisturizer than an anti-aging cream? What is the difference?

Our crems for men are moisturizing, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle ..., or "anti-stress" as we say in Homo Naturals?

In principle, a moisturizer is not the same as an anti-aging cream.

As a general rule, we could say that the function of a moisturizer is to prevent your skin from drying (which is the main cause of the appearance of wrinkles). The function of an anti-aging cream is to treat the wrinkles that have already appeared.

That is, it is often considered the "anti-aging" cream as something more powerful.

We call "anti-stress" to the step number 4 of our facial treatment for men.

We do not like to classify our anti-stress in the only "moisturizing" category or in the category of only "anti-aging", since it is a product (both in gel format and in cream format) that meets the two functions: prevent and treat at once

Normally, skin with a higher amount of wrinkles is usually a skin with a greater degree of dryness, so, if you think your skin has a significant level of wrinkles you need to act quickly. In this case, we would recommend our Ant-stress Cream. 

It is a cream that has been formulated for normal or dry skin, so unless you have very oily skin, the cream will provide you with an anti-aging action due to the great number of active principles that this cream contains but with a shine-free texture. 

If even when having combination or oily skin, you still need to thoroughly treat wrinkles for a certain period of time, that is, at a shock treatment level, you can use our Anti-Stress Cream at night to help regenerate the skin while you sleep, and during the day, you can use our Anti-Stress Gel instead, which has a lighter texture.

Another option is that you alternate both products according to the season of the year, which is also a great way to nourish your skin with different ingredients.

In summer or during the hot weather season, we recommend the texture of our facial Gel for men, and in winter or during the colder weather season, we recommend the texture of our specific facial Cream for men.

You also have to take into account the humidity of the climate in which you live. If you live in Madrid or away from the sea, the climate tends to be drier, and therefore our recommendation is to use preferably our anti-Stress Cream. 

And if you live in coastal areas like Barcelona, the Balearic, or the Canary Islands, then we recommend the Anti-Stress Gel for men.

If you have more doubts about what kind of facial Gel or Cream your skin needs, do not hesitate to get in touch with us, and we will answer you as soon as possible.
