There are so many different skin care products out on the market today, and how do you choose which product and brand that is right for you? You have Oil of Olay, L’Oreal, Garnier, AVON, Mary Kay, Clinique, Sephora, Ulta, Lancôme, Estee Lauder, L’BEL USA, Store Brands, etc. Then there is the option of going the all-natural route. There’s so many too choose from and it’s enough to make your head spin.
So, how do you even begin to choose which brand, and then the product, that is right for you? Well, start off by figuring out what your skin type is. By this I mean: normal, normal to dry, normal to oily, dry, oily, or combination. After this, then figure out if you want to target a specific problem like acne scars, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, etc., or if you just want a general day, night, and eye moisturizer.
Going from choosing your skin type and what you want to target, your next step, and it is a big one, is what brand you choose and how much you want to spend. If you go with a more expensive brand like Clinique, Lancôme, Estee Lauder, and the others that are at the major dept. stores, be prepared to pay a good amount of money for them. And they may work just as good as a lesser expensive brand. If you decide to not go with the more expensive brands, there’s always the option to go with what is at the big stores like Target, Wal-Mart, grocery stores, etc., to get your Oil of Olay, Garnier, L’Oreal, and the store brands. There’s always an option of supporting your local small business owners that have their own brick and mortar stores or your Avon, Mary Kay, and L’BEL (just to name a few) Independent Representatives.
If you are still confused after reading all this, don’t be. It’s not as hard as it is made out to be. Anyone that works in health & beauty (with the exception of your big box stores, dollar stores, etc.) can help you in choosing what is right for you. If you choose to go it alone, remember to figure what your skin type is (if you don’t already know), if you are wanting to target a specific problem, or just have a general moisturizer for your face and eye area. Also, keep in mind the brand you want to try and how much you are willing, or not willing, to spend.
