Most of us categorize creams as light and heavy, oily and gel-based, but the most important division is between moisturizing and nourishing. Few of us actually know about moisturizing and nourishing creams, and even fewer of us know about the main differences between them and when each type of cream is actually needed. That's why we bring you a mini-guide to learn the most important information about moisturizing and nourishing creams.

What is the difference between moisturizing and nourishing cream?

Both moisturizing and nourishing creams aim for the same goal: to provide the skin with all the necessary water to fight dryness, dehydration, signs of aging, and environmental influences. Their difference lies in the way they achieve this goal. The goal is to ensure hydration, and hydration refers to the amount of water within the skin cells. If water leaves the skin cells, the skin becomes dehydrated and lifeless. Moisturizing creams maintain the water balance in the skin, and by applying them, you introduce water into your cells and improve your skin's ability to absorb moisture and nutrients. On the other hand, nourishing creams work to retain and seal moisture in the cells to build a protective layer of the skin, prevent water loss, and keep the skin soft and smooth.

How to know if you need moisturizing, nourishing, or both creams?

It is somewhat logical to conclude that if you have dry skin, you need a nourishing cream that will nourish your skin and restore its fuller and fresher appearance. However, it is not always the case. It all depends on whether your skin is dehydrated, and any skin type can be dehydrated. If your skin is dehydrated, then only a moisturizing cream can help it by introducing water into the skin cells. Every skin has its natural lipid barrier that protects it from damage and water loss. If your skin is dry, prone to cracking and flaking, it is a sign that your skin does not produce enough lipid cells to create a protective barrier, which means it cannot retain moisture and needs a nourishing cream.

How to choose the right moisturizing and nourishing cream

Regular intake of water into your body is the simplest way to hydrate your skin, but the help of a moisturizing cream that helps your skin improve its ability to retain moisture is always welcome! For this purpose, the best moisturizing creams containing natural humectants are recommended. Examples of natural humectants include honey and hyaluronic acid, both of which can be found in NIKELHIDRIS and Nikel Hyaluron creams. Both creams intensely and deeply hydrate the skin, preventing moisture loss and combating wrinkles. Experts also claim that moisturizing ingredients are generally suitable for all skin types because they are water-soluble and will not clog pores.

As for nourishing creams, it is best to use those containing ingredients that are not only moisturizing and nourishing but also beneficial in combating signs of aging and damage from free radicals. Some of these ingredients include ceramides, shea butter, cocoa butter, and almond oil. Shea and cocoa butter intensely nourish and protect the skin, and you can find them in NIKEL nourishing cream with immortelle, NIKELNUTRIS cream, NIKELIFT cream, and NIKEL nourishing cream with rose. These creams restore the epidermis of your skin and soothe uncomfortable skin tightness. Ceramides restore the skin's surface layer, and you can find them in NIKEL nourishing cream with immortelle, which is ideal for caring for very dry skin. Almond oil has anti-aging effects, nourishes, moisturizes, and strengthens the skin's elasticity, as well as soothing irritation, and you can find it in all the mentioned Nikel nourishing creams.

For best results, nourishing and moisturizing creams should be applied in the morning (before applying sunscreen) and in the evening.
