Skin Care – Things To Avoid At All Costs

There is an amazing amount of money spent every year by men and women, boys and girls (and parents) who just want their skin to look as good as it can, and are prepared to pay well for the privilege. There is no question that a lot of this money is wasted, as people buy the wrong product, or buy the right product and use it wrongly, or even get both of those elements correct and then do something else that undoes all the good work they had just done. Doing it right is not an easy thing. It can be a quest that ranks up there with the search for the Holy Grail. But a few words of advice are worth keeping in mind.

Firstly, do not buy a product without reading in detail what it does. This is seemingly obvious advice, but there are so many people who purchase a skin care product and are appalled to find it does not work for them. They then belatedly read the packet and find it was for people with oily skin, and they are possessed of dry skin. No surprise it didn’t work, really.

Secondly, it is vitally important that you avoid at all costs any product that comes without the correct medical seals of approval. These differ between countries but one thing that remains constant is that the clinically tested products have the appropriate marks. If you try an unendorsed product, you should not be surprised if it does you no good.

Thirdly, do not expect a product to do all the work. It requires a little something from you, too. As often as not it will be simple – follow a good diet, drink water regularly, avoid extremes in temperature after use. And do not use another product on top of the first one without checking to see that they are compatible. It’s asking for trouble.

These are just three pieces of advice. You can probably think of a few of your own. The most important thing to remember is that if you look after your skin, it will look after you. It’s a two-way street.

Skin Care Products – Caring for Your Skin, or Careless for Your Bank Balance?

There is a vast range of products on the market for people who want to get rid of facial blemishes and keep their skin looking fresh, clean and young. Some of these products really do work, and do the job for which they are intended. But it is always important to ensure that you get the right product for you, and to make sure that it is actually addressing the problem rather than masking it. In fact, this process can start when you see the product advertised. Certain give away words and terms can be very important in making sure you do not buy something that leaves you feeling like you have wasted your hard earned money.

You may well have seen ads for wrinkle cream, for example, which use the phrase “wrinkles appear reduced”. It sounds like a perfectly innocent phrase, and yet if you think about it, they do not say that wrinkles are reduced, do they? Why not? Because they aren’t. The wrinkles appear reduced because the active ingredient in the cream causes the skin to expand and stretch out where the wrinkles are. The actual wrinkle is no more reduced than if you had done nothing at all, which is why you need to keep applying the cream, and buy more when it runs out. No cream can actually reduce wrinkles, so it is a short term fix at best.

Another word to look out for is “can”. Very often you will be told that a product can have amazing effects. But this depends on a number of factors – factors which are essential in turning a “can” into a “does”, and these very factors can be inconvenient, expensive and in some cases downright impossible. Look out also for products which claim that in laboratory testing they proved to be far and away the best. Legally, the companies are required to include substantive proof that this is the case, and very often what transpires is that a small majority of people found that the product was helpful, within a laboratory sample in the low hundreds of people. Hardly conclusive.
