Skin care products have come a long way since even a couple of years ago, and we don’t see the rise in innovation stopping anytime soon. Many people have their set skin care regimens and those products they can’t live without, including anti-aging skin care products. We’ve gathered information on what you should know when searching for that an anti-aging product, and you’re going to want to read on.
DETERMINE YOUR SKIN TYPE
First and foremost, it’s crucial that you know your skin type.
NORMAL: If you’re skin type is normal, you will most likely have fine/small pores, a smooth texture of skin, radiance, and little to no blemishes. Typically normal skin is not prone to sensitivity – lucky you!
COMBINATION: If you have combination skin, you might notice oiliness, primarily in the T-zone area (forehead, chin, and nose). Often time folks with combination skin will notice normal or dry cheeks and larger pores. There may even be some acne present.
OILY: With oily skin, you will notice large pores, a dull and/or shiny complexion, and a thick/coated looking texture.
DRY: Dry skin is flaky and dull, usually shows mild to moderate redness, and lacks elasticity. It accounts for almost half of all visits to a dermatologist.
TARGET YOUR SKIN TYPE
Now that you have a good idea of what your skin type is, it’s important to choose products based on that.
NORMAL: You are truly the lucky ones. With your skin type, you have a multitude of products available to you. Most likely, you will be able to choose products solely based on personal preference and products that are geared towards just maintaining your current skin health, as well as hydrating products that will help to maintain or improve the radiance.
COMBINATION: With this skin type, you want to restore balance in your skin. Brands like Exuviance carries toners, moisturizers, and cleansing gels that are said to purify and restore your skin’s natural pH balance, all while giving you the benefits of anti-aging results: skin tightening, radiance, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
OILY: Brands like Olay have anti-aging serums designed to tighten skin. The good part about Olay products is that they are hydrating and typically do not contain any harsh fragrances, so you are less likely to experience irritation.
DRY: Both brands mentioned above, Exuviance and Olay, have anti-aging products that will help to moisturize and hydrate dry skin, give you a more balanced skin texture, and improve overall radiance.
So, as you can see, knowing your skin type and catering to it are the most important things to establish before selecting or using skin care products, whether the products are specifically for anti-aging benefits or are just products to incorporate into a regular skin care routine.
