Buy the right beauty products for your face
14 March 2015, Nirapad News: The average woman spends thousands of hours on her face during her lifetime. And apart from all that time, she also spends a lot of money on her skincare regime. Which is why it is important that you buy the right products that suit your skin.
It isn’t easy to find something that suits you well and in that search, women often end up buying the wrong products or ones that don’t suit them at all. The beauty industry is a billion dollar one with hundreds of types of beauty products ? from anti-ageing lotions, sunscreens, toners, moisturizers, lotions, creams, serums, cleansers, exfoliates, etc available from as many manufacturers. And whether you buy your products online, at a wholesale store, departmental store or your local chemist ? be sure of what you apply. After all, you don’t want a flare up or allergic reaction.
– Avoid using soap on your face ?most have ingredients that will make your skin really dry and cause irritation. If you really want to use soap though, use one which contains glycerin, which will moisturise your skin. It is best, however, to opt for foaming cleansers that don’t harm the skin. Use ones according to your skin type that will ensure that your skin retains it moisture. Oily skin responds well to face washes that contain salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.
– Many experts recommend women to start using anti-ageing creams once they cross 30. Look out for ones which contain retinoids because that increases cell turnover and thereby builds collagen. You can also use creams that have retinyl propionate, retinol, pep tides and sirtuin, which all work wonders on your skin.
– Our skin goes through daily wear and tear thanks to pollution and harmful chemicals. This is why applying a moisturiser daily is so important. Use moisturizers with emollients and humectants that hydrate your skin, help retain moisture and soften skin. Use products that contain glycerin and hyaluronic acid, which delay fine lines and wrinkles.
-An exfoliator is a must in any woman’s beauty regime. Exfoliate your face once or twice a week so that you remove dead skin cells. Buy products that have glycolic acid, lactic acid or salicylic acid.
