What to look for in a face cream? It is a must to achieve healthy, glowing skin no matter the season, your age, or skin type. Indeed, it keeps your skin moisturized and elastic, which can help reduce wrinkles, age spots and other fine lines, and can also act as a protective barrier against external aggressions. Therefore, picking the right face cream is crucial and making sure it works without harming your skin with synthetic ingredients is even more important! There are so many face creams, body and facial moisturizers, lotions or ointments for dry, sensitive and oily skin. Let’s face it (pun intended), it can be overwhelmingly difficult to know what to look for when choosing a face cream down the skin care aisles.The basic rule of thumb is that you should choose your moisturizer based on your skin type. Think ointment and heavy creams for dry skin, thinner creams for normal skin and lotions for oily skin. Next, you want to make sure it is natural and eco-friendly. We all deserve eco-conscious and organic cosmetic products, don’t we? We sure do, and Staiy has a few favorites to recommend that will give your skin that healthy glow it is craving

Malinna – Face cream rose

A skin that needs a little TLC would benefit from a targeted moisturizer that repairs and protects. Face Cream Rose is an intensive facial and décolleté stimulating cream. The rosewood essential oil is known for wrinkle prevention and for its revitalizing effect and the shea butter has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. If that was’s not appealing enough, just know that it is’s 100% organic and vegan. A must hydration treat for every skin type.

Mademoiselle Kelapa – Moisturizer

When dry skin needs a real helping hand, this hardworking moisturizer comes highly recommended. Mademoiselle Kepala is completely natural and performs the way high-end favorites do. The founder used her Parisian expertise working with luxury brands and cosmetics to develop her own line of natural products in Bali, from natural and organic local ingredients. We can guarantee you that It will give your skin long-term moisture and hydration, feeling that rich, creamy texture that everyone loves. Surprisingly, this cream penetrates in only one minute after application, leaving your skin soft with a wonderful floral scent.

Ecophylla – Moisturizer 

Ideal for those with mature and sensitive skin, this moisturizer gives brightness and firmness, as well as nourishment and protection thanks to its unique formula. One of its key ingredients is Baobab oil, which is a powerful antioxidant rich in vitamins A, C and E, and which deeply nourishes the skin, making it velvety and toned. Another one is Prickly pear oil, which has a strong revitalizing action and last but not least, the mango butter, with its high content of oleic and palmitic acids, which counteracts skin relaxation, ensuring hydration and tonicity.

Salad Code – Moisturizing & soothing face cream

This brand prioritizes quality and sustainability, but a back-to-basics simplicity gives its concoctions a clean, no-frills effectiveness we appreciate. Because of its delicious and healthy ingredients, such as avocado and kale, we are automatically drawn to this cream! The avocado helps moisturize and protect the skin from damaging UV rays and also increases collagen metabolism. Kale and green tea prevent ageing and help protect from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. The mix of these ingredients will hydrate and soothe the most sensitive of skins. Try it for yourself and expect your skin to be as soft as velvet in no time!
