Moisturizing GEL or Cream? When is each one better?

The type of texture of your facial moisturizer that you can apply on your face, depends on two factors:

  • On the one hand the type of skin you have
  • Y On the other hand, the weather conditions in which you live.

And this last factor is more important than it seems.

In the same way that we do not feed the organism with the same meal during the year (in summer we like lighter and refreshing meals and in winter foods that help us fight the cold), to our skin, as is the largest organ of Our body What makes protective barrier in front of external agents, you also have to "feed" products with the right texture.

The first thing because you should know is the type of skin you have. For this we recommend that you respond to these simple questions.

Once you know the type of skin you have, you must take into account the weather conditions in which you live.

In another article we will talk about how weather conditions affect your skin, and how to make the final decision about the type of moisturizing to use for your skin type.

If you live in the southern hemisphere is obviously on the contrary but the strategy of combining gel or facial cream according to the time of year is the same.

In countries such as Chile or Argentina, we recommend gel texture for winter and cream for summer, unlike the countries of the northern hemisphere such as Spain, or the United States.

In principle our recommendation would be:

Skin Type: Skin Grease Mixed Skin Normal Skin Dry Leather Recommended Texture: Gel Gel (But In Winter Cream) Cream (But In Summer Gel) Cream

Type of skin
Recommended texture
Gel (but in winter cream)
Cream (but in summer gel)
