Once you have made the decision to be proactive about your skin care, it is time to start looking at anti-aging products that can help renew the skin and improve your appearance.
First things first-you will need to decide what kinds of products you need and what your budget allows for a monthly maintenance of these products. Second you should find out your skin type, whether it is oily, dry, normal or combination and make a list of products based for your type. A good thing to begin with is a good skin cleanser, a facial toner, a night cream and a moisturizer. Then you can add on an eye cream, lip plumper, line filler and so on.
You will need to do a little research of the products prior to shopping. You need to know what products are effective and safe to use every day. If you have a big event planned, you will want some products to improve the look of your complexion and hide any little flaws. A good place to start your research is on the Internet. You can look up the best brands and compare their costs and lists of active ingredients. Research all the products on your list to determine which ones you will buy. Some of them may be a little over your budget so you can list them under “extras” or “wish-list” items. Be sure to include as many products as you can think of. Remember, you are in control of your anti-aging plan so be very thorough.
One thing to be aware of ingredients, you want to make sure that any product you put on your skin is natural and non-irritating. Harsh chemicals irritate the skin and can have disastrous results. Natural products will be safe and gentle on the skin. Look for products that are “cruelty-free” because they have not been tested on animals and tend to be natural and void of any harmful chemicals. They should also be compatible with makeup applications. Anything that leaves an oily residue will not mix well with your foundation.
While performing your research, take notes on the products return policy if you do not like it. Can you exchange it for a product of equal value or get a refund? Avoid any company that does not allow returns or who charges a “restocking fee“. Companies that offer free shipping is definitely a plus because it will save you money. If you find a company that does all of this, find out if they make any other products on your list. You could do some one-stop shopping in this case. It is definitely worth a try.
