Facts on Selecting Skin Care Products

Skin Care Products are available for a range of skin types and purposes. The most common skin types are Normal, Oily, Dry and Combination. Normal skin has no signs of oily or dry areas and looks clear and healthy. Oily skin is shiny with no dry areas. Dry skin has some flaking with no oily areas. Combination skin has oily and dry areas.

When choosing a skin care product it’s important to pick something that won’t aggravate which ever type of skin you have. Skin Care Products are available to treat specific conditions or a combination of conditions. The most common skin care products are cleansers and moisturizers. There are also products with astringents to help tighten skin, Alpha-Hydroxy Acids to help skin slough old cells on the surface, Antioxidants to help new skin growth, and UV blockers to protect the skin from the Sun’s damaging rays along with other types of skin care products. Many of these can be combined. You’ll have most often seen UV blockers in moisturizers. It is one less step in your morning routine and you don’t need to worry about forgetting that sunscreen.

Retinols are also popular for reduction of wrinkles by causing your skin to swell slightly and also for helping to fade age spots (not freckles). There are skin care products specifically for the eyes. It’s a sensitive area with thinner skin. Products for the skin around the eyes treat puffiness, such as the bags under the eyes and wrinkles or crow’s feet and those dark circles that can appear from fatigue. Simple home remedies to take care of your skin are, cucumber slices for puffy eyes, White Hazel to help tighten skin and pores, drinking lots of water and maybe taking a dietary supplement rich in vitamins A, C, and E.”
