Tips for Using Skincare Product
Efficacy is what we pay for skincare products. Over 70% of women dissatisfy with the efficacy of their skincare products. It may or may not be the problem of these skincare products. In fact, improper choice and application of skincare products may be the real reasons!
Choosing the most suitable skincare products for your skin types is the first step to achieve healthy skin. The easiest way to do that is to pay attention to the ingredients. Other than taking a look at the product package, you may read more information on beauty magazine. This helps your escape from the traps of advertisement.
Effective ingredients alone do not ensure high efficacy. You need to know the concentration of such ingredients also. In general, the higher the concentration of the active ingredients, the higher the efficacy of the skincare products. For example, there is a great difference in efficacy for 0.1% and 0.2% of Vitamin C.
Over expectation is also another main reason for people claiming that their skincare products are ineffective. No matter how expensive the skincare products are, they are not medicines or intensive treatments. Therefore, you should not expect to have all wrinkles removed with an anti-wrinkle cream; all acnes removed with an anti-acne skincare product and all spots removed with a whitening cream. Besides, you may only notice the effect of these skincare products in 2 to 4 weeks.
The effect of skincare products can be maximized and enhanced with the proper application methods. One of the most important tips is to wait for 5 minutes after applying every type of skincare products. This prevents the cover and removal of the former layer of skincare products by the later layer.
Finally, you should always follow the instruction on the amount of skincare product to be applied. For example, you may need to apply a generous amount of moisturizer and wash-off mask for noticeable effect. For facial toner, you need to wipe your face with a cotton pad. Besides, you should not apply paper facial mask for more than 15 minutes because moisture from skin may be drawn away.
