When it comes to face skin care, there are a lot of things you can do. If you look for skin care products, you will find that there are literally thousands of them to choose from. So how do you know what product you should use to best take care of your face skin? This article will show you what you should look for and how you can better take care of your face. It will also go into a bit about what you should avoid.
When it comes to skin care for your face, you have to realize skin products aren’t made as a one size fits all. You have to know what type of skin you have before you go out and use random products recommended by random people. So here are the basic types of skin. You have the oily skin versus the dry skin. If you have an oily face, you will want to use different products than someone who has a dry face. For example, oily faced people can use toners to help reduce the oiliness but if dry people use toners, it can cause them to have even drier skin. There are certain chemicals you will want to avoid if you have a certain kind of skin.
Another type of skin is sensitive skin. If you have this type of skin then your face skin care regimen will be different from someone who has resistant skin and so on. So how do you know what to use? Well, it’s not really the products you will want to choose but rather, the ingredients inside the products. If you think about it, product names and how these products are marketing will always change but the basic chemistry of these products will generally stay the same. There are certain things you will want to look for depending on your type of skin.
For example, if you have oily, resistant skin, then you will want to avoid ingredients such as mineral oil, sunflower oil, petrolatum, and other oils since it will just make your face oilier obviously.
For dry face skin care, you will want to use products non-alcohol toners, cleansing products that foam up, and scrubs. Ingredients you will want to look for if have acne for example will include things like lanolin, peppermint oil, cocoa butter, myristyl propionate, decyl oleate, and coconut oil. If you have oily skin, you would want to avoid most of this stuff.
These are the things you will want to pay close attention to buying a face skin care product instead of just looking at the brand. Different products will be best used for different types of skin. So the best thing to do when it comes to face skin care is to search for products for your specific skin. These are the basic types of skin: Sensitive/Resistant, Oily/Dry, Wrinkled/Tight, Pigmented/Non-Pigmented. You can have a combination of these types as well. For example, your forehead can be oily yet the rest of your face can be dry. So when looking into any type of skin care regiment for you face, you will want to take these different things into consideration.
If there was one thing you must absolutely do regardless of your skin type, it is to wear sunscreen. Sunscreen should be a part of any type of face skin care regimen. You will also want to drink plenty of water as well.
