Skin Care Products
While there are literally hundreds of skin care products available – including moisturizers, lotions, serums, exfoliators, anti-aging creams and cleansers — the key to proper skin care is finding the best products for your particular skin type.
Let’s start with soaps and liquid cleansers. Generally, you don’t want to use commercial bar soaps on your face. That’s because they contain too many harsh and irritating ingredients that can dry out your skin.
A better approach is to use a mild liquid facial cleanser. Many of these products include a moisturizer that can help your skin as you clean. Look for liquid facial cleansers that contain ceramides, a type of lipid that helps your skin hold onto moisture naturally.
For oily skin, us a liquid facial cleanser that contains salicylic acid, a chemical that removes dead skin cells, as well as benzoyl peroxide, which is used to unclog pores. These chemicals also can help prevent acne breakouts.
Moisturizers that contain emollients and humectants will hydrate the skin without leaving behind a greasy residue. Humectants help retain moisture and emollients soften and smooth the skin naturally. Combined, they can help minimize wrinkles around the eyes and on the neck
Do anti-aging creams really work? Do they actually turn back the clock on the age of your skin? The correct answer is, “Sort of”.
Most anti-aging creams contain retinoids, which increase cell turnover and may help build natural collagen. Another chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid, a neurotransmitter, works at the nerve level to temporarily relax wrinkles.
Look for anti-aging creams that contain retinol, peptides and sirtuin, a protein that helps smooth uneven skin texture and improve the elasticity of the skin.
