When it comes to skin care, ‘facial skin care’ is at the very top of the chart. The abundance of facial skin care products available in the market is overwhelming. The most common facial skin care products are those that we use most often as part of our daily facial skin care routine. These products are mainly cleansers and moisturizers. Toners and exfoliation products are well known too,but not many people use them as much as the ones previously mentioned.
We van make a general classification of facial skin care products based on the following:
1- Gender (facial skin care products for men and facial skin care products for women)
2- Skin type (facial skin products for oily skin, facial skin care products for dry skin, facial skin care products for normal skin and facial skin care products for sensitive skin)
3- Age (facial skin care products for old and facial skin care products for young)
4- Skin disorder (facial skin care products for treatment of various skin disorders like eczema, acne etc)
The above is a good starting starting point for choosing a facial skin care product that suits you. A good way to start is by determining your skin type first. It's also important to mention that the skin type changes with age, so the facial skin product that suits you today, might not suit you in the future, so you need to constantly evaluate the effectiveness of your facial skin care product.
The facial skin care products are available in various forms: creams, lotions, gels, masks etc, and there are lot of discussions on which form is best. However, one can’t really rate one form as better than another form. Whatever type of product suits you is the best form of facial skin care product for you.
However, it’s important to note that these products work differently for different people (although there are some products that can be considered universal, or that they're fit for everyone in acertain group, such as anti-aging skin care products) So the best thing is to try the facial skin care product on a small patch of skin before actually going ahead and using it.
Another very important thing to take into consideration is the state of your skin. If you are suffering from some sort of skin disorder, the best way to go about it is to seek a specialist's advice, before actually strating to use the skin care product product.
Once you have selected the facial skin care product for yourself, you need to make sure you're using the facial skin care product in the right way. Follow correct procedures for application, use the correct quantity and make the facial product a part of your skin care routine.
For example, if you're starting to see wrinkles around your eyes, you will most definitely go for an anti-aging cream that will make your skin look younger. It's very important to resist the urge to get fast results as most of anti-aging skin care products do not work this way. Apllying more than the standard quantity, or doing it more often than what the anti-aging skin care product manufacturer advises you to do will not give better or quicker results.
