How to choose the best
skincare products for you

No matter what age you are, taking care of your skin is important. Sun damage, aging and poor diet can all take its toll on your skin. That’s why you need to make sure you have the right skincare routine for you.

But it’s not only the routine that’s important. You can’t just use any products on any skin type. You have to make sure you’re using the right products and brands. Many people can get away with using the most basic products and their skin remains clear. However, if you have problem skin, you’ll need to be more careful. Here is some advice on how to choose the best skincare products for you.


Know your skin type

Just like when you use body cream for dark skin on your ashy elbows and dry legs, you need to use products for your skin type on your face. Take some time to look in the mirror and figure out whether your skin is naturally dry, oily or combination type. You can find easy tutorials for this online. If you don’t want to figure it out on your own, you can also ask a professional when you go for a facial. 


Avoid all-in-one products

If you have problematic skin you should avoid products that promise to remove makeup, cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise all in one go. It may save you time but it won’t help to clear and take care of your skin. Instead, make sure you use a separate product for each stage in your skincare routine. It is worth taking the time out of your day and money out of your pocket to do this. Remember, your face is what the world sees and having clear skin will give you all the confidence you need to face the day.


Do your research before using any product

Don’t simply go to a grocery store or makeup counter and randomly select a product. You need to thoroughly research each product. Ask friends with a similar skin type what products they use and whether they work. Checking the ingredients on the back of a product is also a must. And if you don’t know what these products are, you should look them up online to make sure they really are good for your skin type.


Look for a brand you can continue to use

Make sure you choose a brand you can continue using over time. Don’t pick a brand that’s on special at the time that you wouldn’t normally be able to afford. You should also avoid buying products in other countries that you aren’t sure you can get here.

      Hello Lee, Thank you for your purchase. All our products work together. First step is cleansing gel / face wash , second step would be day cream in the day and night cream at night. Peeling Gel is a treatment product to be used once or twice per week.

    My body skin is dry and easily scars or pigment, my knuckles, knees and feet show the most (2 shades darker than the body). How can I brighten those areas to match my body skin tone (i do not want to darken my complextion), I am brown skinned. the skin in my face and other body parts is flawless.

    I sometimes get light pimple breakout on my forehead. I dont know if it is stress related. Will your product help in this regard? Also I dont see that you have cleansers and toners.
