What is old fashion cold cream? I only knew about it from old fashion beauty ads. I never tried cold cream until I received a jar of Pond’s Cold Cream in one of my subscription boxes to try and I am hooked. Cold cream has been around for centuries and dates back to the second century when the Greek women used it as part of their beauty routine. It is called cold cream because it is cold going on your skin. All cold creams contain 4 main ingredients, water, oil, emulsifier, and thickening agent like beeswax.
I find my Pond’s Cold Cream great at removing my makeup, especially after a photoshoot when I am wearing more make up then usual. Pond’s Cold Cream works great at getting my sunscreen off my face after a day at the beach. I put on a generous amount and then rinse with warm water and a face cloth. I then use the rest of my serums and night creams.
I do not leave my cold cream on all night. It can become drying and there is no active ingredients in cold creams to help with premature aging or wrinkles. I use my Ponds Cold Cream as a great prep before I apply my lotions because it leaves my skin clean without a dry feeling. Try what your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother used. The old fashion is the new fashion beauty product!
