Tips For Choosing Skin Care Products

Sep 2, 2008
Healthy, beautiful skin is something many people strive for. We're all born with gorgeous skin, but as we age it becomes necessary to put forth a little effort to maintain a glowing complexion. Luckily, there are lots of skin care products available for all ages and skin types. Choosing the right products can go a long way towards great skin, while choosing the wrong ones can cause complexion problems.

The first thing you should think about when searching for the right products is your skin type. Everyone has a particular skin type -- dry, oily or combination. Dry and oily skin types are simple enough to recognize. Dry skin often suffers from flaky patches and sometimes sensitivity, while oily skin is often shiny and acne prone. Combination skin is often oily on the T-zone, which is the forehead, nose and chin, with dryness on the rest of the face. There are no set rules for skin types, however. For example, some people suffer from dryness and breakouts, or skin that is oily and sensitive at the same time.

Your age has a lot to do with the products you should choose. A teen suffering from acne, for example, would need different products than a 40-year old with adult acne. Young skin may benefit from a benzoyl peroxide cream to fight pimples, while older skin would do better with a retinol treatment to fight both pimples and wrinkles at the same time. No matter what age you are, you should develop a basic skin care routine that is followed daily. This normally will include cleanser, toner and moisturizer or acne cream depending on your skin type. Exfoliation is important also, but not recommended for every day. Night creams can work well for aging or dry skin. Once or twice a month, many people use a nurturing clay mask or microdermabrasion treatment to deep clean and clarify the skin.

Skin care products are available from many different companies at many different price ranges. There are drugstore and discount store products that are affordable and effective for all kinds of skin care needs. Some people swear by department store products, or even those prescribed by a dermatologist. The best course of action when caring for your skin is to find products that work for you at a price you can afford. While this may involve a bit of trial and error, it's definitely worth it!
