If your face cream burns or itches, ditch it!
Pay attention to how your skin feels after you’ve applied the face cream. Is there a tightness, tingling or irritation? With a good face cream, you shouldn’t feel any of this
Of course, there might be times when your skin’s more sensitive, like after a day in the sun. But your face cream should help heal it, not stress it out. The best way to do this is by checking the ingredients list of your face cream.
Is it botanically based? Our dermatologically-approved anti-wrinkle face creams, Age IQ, harness the best from science and nature – delivering tried-and-true ingredients to your skin in this day and night face cream set.
Three Nerium-exclusive blends (TC3-Amor, SIG-1273®, and SAL-14™) make these face creams like no other.
TC3-Amor shields your skin against environmental stressors with a combination of trehalose, glycerin, and chia seed extract. SIG-1273® acts as an antioxidant and protector, while reducing oxidative stress. And SAL-14™ fights discolouration naturally, through the antioxidant bidens pilosa and mauritia flexuosa fruit oil.
While our face cream has a long list of botanical ingredients, there’s no other face wash product with these three blends.
Your face cream shouldn’t cause you pain.
Okay, so back to the skin issues that regular face creams can cause.
You know your skin better than anyone else, so ‘listen’ to what it’s telling you. Here are a few of the tell-tale signs that your it’s time to switch your face cream.
Discomfort (itchiness, redness, burning & stinging)
Beautiful, don’t fall into the ‘pain is beauty’ mindset. It’s not the case, at all. If you’re experiencing any discomfort, there’s an issue with your face cream. It could be one ingredient that your body doesn’t agree with. In supermarket-bought lotions, common ingredients like benzoyl peroxide cause irritations, redness or burning.
Always noticing pimples on your face? Check the ingredients list. There’s probably something in there that’s causing it. While acne can be caused by a number of factors, your face cream should keep it clear (not create more).
If your skin is extremely flaky or always dry, your lotion isn’t doing what it needs to. Standard moisturisers can dehydrate your skin, due to drying agents such as alcohol. But if you’re always oily, it could be because the lotion has control ingredients that strip away the skin’s natural oils. So, you end up with a whole lot more of it.
It could even be as simple as your skin not looking as good as it should.
Whatever the reason, try Age IQ. You’ll see what we mean.
