It’s never late to start using skin care products designed specifically for your skin type. When you reach 22, it is strongly suggested that you do so. 

But how do you determine how to buy skin care products that best suit your skin and lifestyle? Here is an article for all the ladies out there who are about to invest in skin care products for the first time. 

Be aware of your skin type.

Knowing your skin type before making a purchase is crucial for ensuring you get the most out of the money and the products you put on your face. Typically, brands classify skin as either “normal,” “oily,” or “mixed,” with “sensitive” skin being the fourth option. The same holds for online brands that provide high-quality products at affordable prices, such as those offered through beauty product subscription boxes. 

If you aren’t aware of your skin type, a dermatologist is your best bet, but if you’ve never had cause to see one, any salesperson at a major department store will be happy to help you out. They will likely try to sell users the most suitable products from their brand. Even if you aren’t set on purchasing the product she recommends, you should give her some thought because she has been trained to identify your skin’s needs. 

Fundamentals

It is recommended to begin with a moisturiser and an eye contour if you’ve never used skin care products specifically designed for your face. You can slow the ageing of your skin and prevent the development of unsightly crowfeet by using these two products as part of your daily and nightly cleaning routines. 

It’s a good idea to give it a test drive before committing to a purchase. 

Although all moisturisers aim to do the same thing, hydrate the skin, their specific formulations vary widely. It is always recommended that you conduct extensive research and product testing before making a final purchase. If you want to find the best cream for your needs, it is recommended that you try out a few different brands by picking up free samples at your local drugstore. You’ll be able to fine-tune your formula and consistency from there. There is no “best” beauty product; only buy skin care products that work for your skin type. 

The Day/Night Cycle 

When you purchase a new product, you can try storing your creams to distinguish between your day and nighttime routines easier. It is advised to use a sunscreen-containing moisturising cream during the day and a toning cream or serum amount of vitamin E and keratin at night. 

Trust-worthy brands

The higher the price of a cream (due to the brand name), the higher its quality. However, it isn’t necessarily making it the most effective. Now, dermatologists always will advocate for frugality, but when it comes to the health and treatment of your body, it is always advised to spend a bit more on a high-quality item that will give you a better outward impression if you can afford it. You can use a drop of a high-quality cream or serum twice daily for up to a year if you use it nightly before bed and in the morning upon waking. Before buying anything, look it up online, hear what other people who have used it have to say about it, and double-check the instructions.
