What should I pay attention to when buying a face cream?

To choose the right face cream, it is important to know which skin type you have.

When you have cleaned your face well and have waited 10 minutes, we recommend that you take a paper tissue and press it tightly against your forehead. If the paper stays clean and is not greasy, you have normal skin. You have small pores and firm skin with sufficient elasticity.

Are there greasy spots on the cloth and do your cheeks and nose have a mild shine? Then your skin is oily. Does nothing happen to the paper, but does your skin feel tight and sensitive and are flakes visible? Then your skin is too dry. Of course you cannot recognize yourself in the above skin types. It is also possible that you have aging skin and are looking for a suitable face cream for this. In our webshop you can read per product which cream suits your skin type.

Different ingredients

The different effects of the ingredients in a cream are central and determine the effect on your skin. To ensure that you choose a good face cream for men, we give you a helping hand. Below you can see a number of very effective ingredients that you definitely want to have in your face cream!

UV protection

UV radiation is responsible for about 80% of skin aging. The best face cream for men must therefore always be able to protect against the influences of the sun.

Vitamin C and E

Sun rays have an effect on accelerating the loss of elasticity and firmness of the skin and provide clearer expression lines. Vitamins C and E can help your skin to counteract this accelerated process, due to the many antioxidants that are released.


Resveratrol is a plant compound that acts as an antioxidant. Resveratrol stimulates antioxidant enzymes and works to strengthen your natural defense system.

Coenzyme Q10

Also an antioxidant that helps protect your skin against exposure to the sun's rays and thus prevents accelerated aging of the skin.


This substance inhibits the action of tyrosinase, the enzyme necessary for the synthesis of melanin. This way you prevent spots on your face.

Hydroxy acids

Hydroxy acids are able to loosen the ionic bonds of dead cells on your skin. This makes it easier to remove them without having to rub hard.


Retinol is the substance that softens wrinkles, reduces spots and ensures that it refines your pores. Retinol also stimulates cell regeneration.

Hyaluronic acid

This fine substance has the capacity to absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water. This therefore provides great moisturizing capacity and thereby stimulates collagen production, healing and cell renewal. An indispensable fabric.
