Are You Having Trouble Finding Good Skin Care Products?
Skin care is the wide range of cosmetic practices which support the skin’s appearance, improve its health and relieve various skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles etc. Skin care includes a large variety of techniques which are applied on our skin to keep it healthy and beautiful. There are different types of skin care such as facial skin care, body skin care and facial skin care. Face skin care, body skin care and facial skin care encompass all the techniques and treatments that are used on one’s face, hands, feet or any other part of the body.
You may want to start with a basic skin care regimen that includes washing and exfoliating the skin twice or thrice daily to maintain the proper balance of sebum (natural oil), the skin’s natural protection against external elements. Moisturizing is a technique which has become very popular over the last few years, especially for those who have dry skin. The best time to apply a moisturizer is before you go to bed, if you feel your skin is dry after your first attempt then add a little more moisturizer but don’t use a cream or lotion. If you have oily skin, you may want to use a moisturizer after washing to balance the moisture levels. A good moisturizer should not make your skin feel greasy or oily.
A cleansing routine should be performed at least once a week, this routine cleanses the dirt, dead skin cells and oil from the face and provides the skin with essential nutrients, removing the grime and helping to keep the skin supple. Cleansers can be chosen according to your skin type, oily, dry or combination. After cleansing it is recommended to apply a toner which will remove any excess moisturizer and to apply sunscreen or lip protection if you have plans of going out during the day. The toner will also help clear any blemishes and the sunscreen will protect the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
Each week a new cream or lotion needs to be introduced into the skin care routine, these should contain the latest active ingredients and have been proven to increase the production of collagen and elastin. Ingredients such as active New Zealand Manuka honey and avocado oil have proven to be excellent for increasing collagen and elastin, they are also rich in hyaluronic acid. Other important active ingredients include Shea butter, Active Manuka Honey and Phytessence Wakame. These have all been proven to reduce wrinkles by increasing collagen and elastin creation and hydrating the skin.
When a product does not contain the latest active ingredients then it probably won’t work, the company probably hasn’t spent much time and money on research and development. You should always read the ingredients label very carefully, some things that are deemed to be ‘active ingredients’ may only be a few chemicals. Some companies will mix up their own ingredients with other substances in order to save money. For example, you may have seen a skin care cream that contains Kaolin as an ingredient, this is a clay extract that is supposed to help exfoliate the skin. However, Kaolin is actually made from clay and can cause serious skin irritation.
It is important to pick and choose the best products available. Always read the active ingredients labels before purchasing any new cosmetic.
