Every year there seems to be more and more anti-aging skin creams and other skin care products on the market. Mostly this attests to how much we value youth in our society. And just like other so called youth restoring products and services such as hair restoration services, Botox treatments, lip enhancers, breast enhancements, and so on – the trend seems to be escalating even more.
But are any of these skin products any good? It’s hard to say because not everyone needs the same types of treatments for their skin. For instance, a person with oily skin, obviously has different needs than a person with dry skin. And a product that has received raves for its effect on people with dry skin may be a complete dud when it comes to treating oily skin. This is all to say that whether a particular skin care regimen or product is good for you is a totally individual decision.
The best way of determining what is good for you is to experiment with different products. A good starting point is to look at the members of your family – especially your parents, grand parents and so on. And, especially, if they seem to do a good job of caring for their skin. This gives you a shortcut to determining what types of product might be effective for you. For example, if your parents use glycerin based products and they have flawless skin, even if you don’t use the exact same products that they use, your first choice might be to look at glycerin based products for yourself as well.
Here is what the perfect skin care product should do. It should give your skin an even tone. In other words, if your skin is showing age spots, you want something that will smooth the skin tones. You also want a cream that will tighten your skin and eliminate wrinkles to give it a more youthful tone. You want a product without harsh chemicals, that may give you short term benefits but work towards harming your skin in the long run. And you want skin care products that have good ingredients which are helpful for the skin. Good examples are those that contain natural antioxidants and nutrients that can absorb into your skin and make it healthier.
Since you are experimenting for products that actually work on your skin, when ordering through mail order or through the Internet, first look for ones that offer money back guarantees. This way if it doesn’t satisfy your needs, you can return it, get your money back, and send off for another brand. And if it does work, you keep ordering it.
