Guide On Buying Skin Care Products

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

For people who have an interest in looking after themselves and value staying healthy over other things, usage of good skin care products is an absolute must. There are many advantages to using these products. While some of them are quite obvious, few attributes may not be marketed that much and might be restricted to only a few products available in the market.

It is the overall effectiveness of the cream that ultimately contributes to its popularity with the customers. Following are several tips you should keep in mind when buying skin care products

1. Know your skin type

It is important that you know your skin type. There are basically 5 skin types: oily, dry, combination, sensitive, and normal skin. You can have your doctor determine your skin type or you can try these few very easy tests yourself at home.

Just after getting up in the morning take a plain (no lotion) tissue and wipe your face. If there is oil on it you have oily skin, if there is oil just on the center panel of the tissue you have combination skin, and finally if there is no oil you have normal or dry skin.

You simply wash your face in this next test with non-greasy soap and rinse your face. If you feel like your skin is getting tight or it’s pulling you have dry skin. If you have sensitive skin, your skin will likely become irritated with your morning routine.

2. Read the label

The importance of reading the label and getting acquainted with the ingredients cannot be stressed enough. Water is a primary ingredient that should be present in moisturizers as it best hydrates the skin.

3. Calendar

Different seasons and climates require different products for the skin. So, you should buy products according to your skin type and according to the weather. For instance, your summer skin treatment should include sun block ingredients. Similarly, dry skins should be treated with care during winter to avoid dryness and rough patched.

4. Check out the price

Some of the more expensive products are among the most ineffective but some do work. Less expensive products also are likely to be ineffective.Products like antioxidant serum may cost a bit more but healthy skin is worth it.

5. Use Regularly

The key to positive results is to use the products regularly and to follow the directions. Anti-aging creams and night creams are specific products that should follow a regimen otherwise the purpose is defeated. Use your products as often as they are recommended for best results..
