Differentiation of Cream and Lotion on Makeup Skin Care(1)


Makeup Skin Care

I believe that every beauty’s dressing table will always place many bottles, which will have a variety of uses of cosmetics. Some cosmetics commonly used for skin care are called XX lotion and some are called XX cream. Are they all the same?In fact, there is a difference:

Different appearance texture:

Cream, as the name implies, is paste, frost, solid; Emulsion is a fluid, milky, watery liquid.

Cream due to the formation of solid outside, the viscosity is larger, so the cream touch up relatively thick, viscous, delicate; And the emulsion feels clear and light.

Because the different texture of emulsion and cream, generally speaking, the larger moisture content of the emulsion to the skin permeability is stronger, can be quickly absorbed by the skin, for dry skin moisture supplement. The cream is relatively less permeable and needs a certain amount of time to be absorbed.


Cream is opposite for emulsion, some more complex, the face that often uses in facial skin care cream product has day frost and the minute of late frost.

In addition to the basic skin care functions, day cream products also have the function of protecting, preventing and isolating ultraviolet rays to human body. Its ingredients contain UVA sunscreen (ultraviolet wavelength is 320~400nm) or UVB sunscreen (ultraviolet wavelength is 290~320nm).

Night cream products focus on the skin repair, nourishing, let you after the night rest and skin care, skin back to the best state.

Lotion and cream products before use, should be the first facial treatment, it is recommended that the face cream before use with a layer of moisturizing water or emulsion, in order to achieve a better moisturizing effect.
