Most Popular Ingredients to Look for in Your Next Face Cream

Face Cream Ingredients

It is crucial to keep your skin hydrated, but what’s even more crucial is to find the right face cream. No matter your age, skin needs restoring & replenishing ingredients at all ages. These help prevent moisture loss & also reduce the chances of damaging your skin’s barrier. Additional ingredients like antioxidants can further help strengthen & protect your skin.

For dry skin, your face cream should have ingredients with emollients i.e. skin softening agents that repair cracks, etc. These, when paired with humectants, do a great job at drawing moisture into the skin.

Most people with oily skin tend to skip face creams because they either don’t feel the need to use or have used one in the past that clogged their pores. Face creams that provide lightweight hydration do a great job at balancing oily skin.

Here are the top ingredients to look for in your face cream:

Hyaluronic acid

A natural compound that exists in the skin but its quantity decreases with age. This is where the topical application of hyaluronic acid plays an important role. It has a unique ability to hold moisture and hence helps benefit tissue repair & protection. While it is beneficial for all skin types, it’s lightweight nature makes it perfect for combination to oily skin. It is often combined with other moisturizing ingredients for dry skin. 


It is a lightweight & non-comedogenic oil that penetrates into the deeper layers of skin without making it feel oily or greasy. This makes it perfect for all skin types including oily skin.  It helps seal in moisture for softer & smoother skin.


Ceramides mimic the functions of the natural lipids found in the top skin layer & help repair skin barrier. These help increase hydration—giving you plumper, smoother skin. These are beneficial for all skin types. Formulations with Ceramides can be used to repair skin barrier and replenish dehydrated skin.

A powerful ingredient with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that detoxifies, clarifies and soothes skin. It helps fight acne and helps control acne causing bacteria.
