Skin Care Products Are Not All the Same
Skin Care Products Are Everywhere!Ads by Google
You almost can’t walk through a mall without having some well dressed attractive young lady applying a bit of anti aging skin cream on your
cheek as you rush by. It’s not Grandma’s, or even Mom’s, world anymore!
The skin care product industry is thriving for a reason. Enormous numbers of women and, increasingly, men, want to improve the look, tone, and
texture of their skin. They want to reverse the clock, reduce or eliminate those wrinkles, fines lines, dry skin, baggy eyes, dark skin under the
eyes, large pores, and all those skin conditions that make us look older and less attractive than we can be.
So the market exists, and skin care companies and manufacturers are well aware of it and continue to produce an
almost limitless array of skin care products. Anti aging skin care is huge, with its anti-wrinkle creams, cleansers, moisturizers,
resurfacing serums, exfoliation treatments, and skin brighteners. Body lotions, treatments for cellulite and for preventing stretch marks,
and acne and psoriasis treatments abound.
The Skin Care Products Market Is Over-Saturated
Logic tells us it wouldn’t be if there wasn't some value being provided to the public. If an anti-wrinkle
cream does not reduce the appearance of wrinkles, people will ask for a refund and no longer buy the product. So yes, based on user
feedback, some skin care products do at least enough of what they claim they can do to satisfy a portion of the customer base.
Science has undoubtedly increased our knowledge of human skin and how best to treat it to make it better,
healthier and more attractive. There is evidence to back up the anti-aging effectiveness of certain ingredients, but by the same token many
skin care products make claims that fall decidedly short of expectations.
Amazingly, however, some people continue to buy ineffective products, maybe because they have been overly
influenced by clever marketing tactics. We would hope that would be the exception, of course. (To be on the safe side, if you don’t trust
your memory, you could take a close-up photo of your face before using a product so that you can compare it to your skin a month or two
after you start using a skin care product.)
We encourage everyone to practice good skin care on a daily basis whether you use a skin care product or
not. Taking care of your whole body, mind, and spirit is the foundation for giving your skin the best chance to
revive. You might want to take a look at our good skin care page to see what we mean.
If you are taking proper care of yourself, and your skin, and you feel like you need that little extra to put
you over the top, you might want to start looking into that vast ocean of skin care products. Believe me, you won’t be alone.
Recognize that Many Skin Care Products Don't Work
With so much to choose from, you have to first accept that a lot of skin care products are ineffective and will
not deliver on their promises.
Many of them will have no effect on your skin at all. Some may help a little. If that is the case, you need to decide whether the results you are getting justify the
cost of the product. Some products may actually do damage to your skin, either because they contain toxic ingredients, or because your skin
is allergic to something in the product.
That’s why it’s a good idea to try to obtain a small free sample of the product to test it behind your ear
(leave it on a least an hour to see if you develop an allergic reaction) or purchase a product that has at minimum a 30-day money back
guarantee. That way, if you don’t like what the product is doing (or is failing to do) return it and get your money back.
Don’t be swayed by marketing hype, fancy packaging, or brand name. Our Skin Care Products Review review page gives the lowest rating to perhaps the most
widely known skin care product on the list.
What matters most is the effectiveness and safety of the product. What are the ingredients? How do these ingredients work to help your particular skin condition?
A Quality Skin Care Product Will Not Conceal Information
Does the product have a website? Online shopping has provided numerous conveniences and advantages for shoppers.
You can go to a website and know right away if this is a serious company. Is the product clearly described and its benefits explained? Is
it easy to get around the website? Is the purchase process clear and simple? Is everything explained to your satisfaction? Are there
customer testimonials, before and after photos, any clinical studies cited?
What are people in forums and chat rooms saying about the product? Even the best products will have some
negative reviews. That’s OK. Not every product works for everyone. Also, be aware of people offering negative or positive opinions who have
obvious agendas and are simply there to promote or detract someone’s product, either for personal or competitor-related reasons. Any
evaluation of a product should be constituted of useful objective information, not irrational or vindictive banter.
It is not possible to test every skin care product individually. We use an intensive research method to break
down the essentials of a skin care product. What is the company claiming it’s product can do for your skin? What evidence do they offer to
back up their claim? Make a list of all the positives and negatives of this product. Based on what you have found out, what is your
conclusion about this product? How would you rate it? Would you recommend it to others?
