Best Skin Care Product
Which is the best skin care product?
There is really nothing like a best skin care product.
There really can’t be anything like ‘The best skin care
product’, because skin care products work differently
for different people (based on the skin type to some
extent). A product that is the ‘best skin care product’
for one person might end up being the worst for another
person. So, a more logical question to ask would be
‘What is the best skin care product for my type of
skin?’. However, this still is not completely logical.
We tend to segregate people into 4 groups based on their
skin types – i.e. dry skin, oily skin, normal skin and
sensitive skin. However, this classification is just too
broad to be used definitively in determining the best
skin care product. We can say ‘best skin care product
for a dry skin’ or ‘best skin care product for an oily
skin’ are better statements than just ‘best skin care
product’. But really, that is what it is – ‘better’;
still not accurate.
So, it really comes to rephrasing the question to –
‘What is the best skin care product for me’. Yes, this
is exactly the question that you should be asking, and
unfortunately there is no easy answer for this. Arriving
at the best skin care product for self will need some
effort on your part.
First of all, you need to understand how the skin care
products work. This is simple. You can consider all skin
care products to be composed of 2 types of ingredients –
Active and inactive. The active ingredients are the ones
that actually work on your skin. The inactive ones just
help in delivering these active ingredients to your
skin. Both the ingredients need to work for your skin,
in order for the product to be effective (and move on to
become the best skin care product for you).
Besides the ingredients, the way you apply your skin
care products is equally important. In fact, this is
even more important. If you do not know how to apply
skin care products, you might forever be hunting for the
best skin care product for yourself, when that has
already passed you. Moreover, it’s also important to
decide on the frequency of application (of the skin care
product). The environmental factors - temperature,
humidity and pollution level, also affect the selection
of best skin care product. Here are a few rules that you
could use to ensure that your best skin care product is
really the best for you:
* Cleanse your skin before applying that best skin care
* Use a makeup remover instead of plain water and remove
your makeup before going to bed.
* The effectiveness of active ingredients is reduced
when applied over another product e.g. over moisturiser.
So apply that best skin care product first and then
apply a bit of moisturizer if needed.
* Apply the products on moist and warm skin.
* You will have to experiment with a few products before
you arrive at the one that is the best skin care product
* Do not exfoliate too much or too hard.
* Vary your skin care routine as per the seasons
(winter/summer etc), changes in environmental factors
and changes in your skin type
Note that the best skin care product cannot be
determined overnight. It’s only through experiment (and
awareness) that you can find the ‘Best skin care
product’ (for you).
