Healthy Skin  -  Effectiveness Of Skin Products  -  Chatsworth, CA

Skin's Health and Product Effectiveness

With so many different types of skin care products on the market today, it can be difficult to determine which ones are best for you. What makes a product effective on one person can cause problems in another. In addition, there are generic products that try to do too much and end up stripping your skin of its natural oils and trapping dirt in pores. So you must take the first step and first determine what type of skin you have (oily, dry, sensitive, or normal) and then find products geared toward your skin type. If you are unsure, check with your doctor or esthetician to get some input. They can help you learn to read the ingredients on the labels. In this article we will take a look to see which products are ineffective for your specific skin type.

Ineffective Oily Skin Products

For oily skin it is important to stay away from products that dry your skin. This can be counterintuitive. When you use products that dry your skin the slick feeling may be temporarily gone but your skin is programmed to accommodate for that and will produce more oil, which is the opposite of what you want. Additionally, your pores tend to grow larger and can trap in more oil, causing more blackheads and trapped dirt. Methanol, mint, eucalyptus and lemon all make your skin tingle. Along with alcohol, this means your skin is likely being irritated. This type of irritation is not helpful to the skin. Tingling is just one way your body is telling you something and the damage can end up causing more problems. When looking at your skin care routine, remember to pick products gels, serums, or liquid forms. This will help prevent harmful irritation and these forms tend to have a more gentle cleansing method.

Ineffective Dry Skin Products

Dry skin can at times be very tricky to treat. Most times using a daily moisturizer can help dry skin to maintain its hydration, whereas other times it can make you break out. Acne treatments are known to dry skin so using an acne treatment on dry skin may cause irritation and even more dryness. Your job is to balance the two by finding a daily moisturizer that has enough hydration to help your skin but does not cause breakouts. It is good to stay away from products with fragrance. Fragranced products have extra ingredients that make them smell nice and may irritate dry skin.

Ineffective Sensitive Skin Products

Sensitive skin is difficult. You may burn easily or have reactions to certain types of makeup. Changes in the weather may irritate your skin and cause you problems. This means your skin is not as durable as some other skin types and testing products is your only means to ensure you have the right stuff. You should get a cleanser and moisturizer that is focused on sensitive skin. Again, consult your esthetician and do not settle. There is a product out there that will help you.

Ineffective Normal Skin Products

If your skin is smooth to the touch and does not get too dry, to oily and doesn’t get irritated then you have normal skin. To keep your skin in tip-top condition you should avoid products that strip the skin of it’s natural oils. You want those oils there. Much like people with oily skin, avoid ingredients that dry your skin. Remember to tone your skin after you cleanse and moisturize and you will be on your way to a lifetime of beautiful skin.

Conclusion

In general it is important to stay away from products that irritate or cause your skin to breakout. Unfortunately, it can be hard to distinguish when purchasing products and trial and error is likely the most effective method to find a product that works best for your skin. The better product lines are not risky to try because they guarantee the products. Once you have your skin care regimen, your skin will adapt to it and improve over time. Monthly facial treatments help to deep clean your skin by exfoliating, peeling and removing dead skin cells from the upper skin layers in order to maintain your skin's glow. Your esthetician is important in your skin management program because estheticians use products and provide services that can only be performed in a clinical environment approved by the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.

I really enjoyed reading your article. I have fairly normal skin but have battle with a dry forehead in winter. My approach has been to avoid winter so now live in Singapore. But you have reminded me that I need to go to the spa.

It's always nice to get away, but a good esthetician can really help you get results.
