How to choose the right products for your skin

by tejas on August 12, 2011

Now a days, there are so many products in the market and most of them are customised as per skin type or skin problems/concerns.I mean to say,if your skin is oily, there are products which are made specially for oily skin,or for example if you have dark patches on your skin(hyper pigmentation) there are products catering to this concern only.So buying or choosing a product, now a days, sounds very easy and simple but, most of us, still feel confused Confused when it actually comes to buying a product for themselves.The reasons can be many such as,

  • Many don’t know, what their skin type is,for eg. their skin sometimes appears oily  and sometimes dry. Struggle
  • There is a lot of competition in market and every product claims to be the best solution,so there is a confusion again.
  • Confusion whether to stick to natural products or cosmetic preparation……… and many more. Thinking

Important things, to keep in mind, for choosing the right product

1.Very important thing is to know the skin type. Many times people are confused in this.For eg. the skin is basically oily, but appears dry in winters  and then we assume it to be dry and start using products for dry skin, which messes up the skin even more.(You can take help of your beauty advisor if you don’t  exactly know to find out.)

2.If your skin is allergic to most of the products,you can check if is hypoallergenic( if so it will always be mentioned on the packing of the product.So chances of allergies are reduced. Smile

3.If your skin is oily or sensitive, you can check if the product is non-comedogenic( will be written on the product) which means the chances of getting break outs(pimples) are rare.

4. Check if they dermatological tested. It means they tested and approved by a panel of dermatologists.

5.Don’t just blindly follow advertisements as it’s a competitive world.Go through reviews - in magazines,on websites etc.

6.Ask for advice - Ask your beauty therapist/ beauty consultants by whom you get your facials done. (Of course you need to be able to trust that consultant to start with.)

7. You also get products  for skin problems such as wrinkles,acne,dark circles,pigmentation(tan,dark spots),etc. However it is important to choose such product, considering your skin type.If you have two or more concerns,for eg. excess oily skin and dark spots as well,again there is a confusion as to which product to start with ,one for the dark spots or one to control oil secretion? Then you can take help of beauty advisors as to how to use two products at the same time,or should use it alternate,or mix n match etc.. You can also decide on which problem you first want to deal with dark spots or excess oil and use products accordingly.

What happens if you use wrong products?

Use of wrong products on skin can create skin various skin problems such as acne(pimples), darkening of skin,excess dryness,making skin more oily,sensitivity,allergies and reactions like rashes,white patches, itching, burning etc. Many times  products, wrongly chosen, may not show its ill effects right after the use but will show in long run( after some years).
