How To Choose a Body Cream?

Skin has to cope with all kinds of external influences every day (sun, wind, pollution, temperature changes, etc.), which can weaken and dry it out. Therefore, it needs special care products that moisturize and nourish the skin to strengthen the hydrolipidic film and thus limit water loss. However, the choice of correct care should not be made lightly. Here's how to choose your body cream correctly.

Criteria for the Correct Choice of Body Cream

To prevent dry skin, you should apply a body cream every day. This simple measure not only protects your skin from harmful environmental factors such as sun, cold and wind, but also moisturizes it, thus promoting the health of your skin. Here are the criteria you should consider when choosing your body cream:

  1. Before you buy a care product, you should primarily consider the needs of your skin. For example, if you have a feeling of tightness especially after showering and in winter, then your skin is dehydrated. As a result, you need a moisturizing body care that will make your skin supple. On the other hand, if you experience a constant feeling of tightness and discomfort and have a kind of crocodile skin, then you have dry skin. This type of skin is deficient in lipids (ceramides and lipids that form the hydrolipidic film) and is unable to retain water in the epidermis. It requires body care rich in nourishing and soothing active ingredients (vegetable butters and oils).

  2. When choosing a body cream, also pay attention to the composition of the care. The ingredients contained in a care are usually sorted in descending order by quantity. To facilitate international understanding, all herbal ingredients are identifiable by their botanical name in Latin, while chemical substances are indicated in English. You should choose care that contains ingredients of natural origin.

Our Different Body Creams

Typology has developed three body creams: a body moisturizer with a minimalist formula, a nourishing body cream and an invigorating body cream. These light, non-greasy body creams primarily ensure that the skin is optimally nourished, protected and moisturized, regardless of the formula. They are suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. These three body care products differ in terms of their composition:

  • The moisturizing body cream contains coconut oil and vegetable glycerin, among other ingredients. Formulated with only 10 ingredients, this care intensively nourishes the body's skin and thus prevents moisture loss.

  • The nourishing body cream is enriched with nourishing and repairing active ingredients such as squalane, plum oil and shea butter. This care is ideal for dry skin and helps to restore the hydrolipidic film of the skin (which is almost non-existent in these skin types). This prevents the evaporation of water from the skin layers, reduces irritation and feelings of tightness, and protects the skin from harmful environmental influences.

  • The invigorating body cream contains, among others, beurre de café, guarana extract and caffeine. It contributes to firmer skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Caffeine is known as an anti-cellulite active ingredient due to its lipolytic effect. In other words, it promotes the dissolution of fat deposits. It also helps to tighten and firm the skin.
