What Products Should I Use?

Women sometimes tell me that they are baffled when they are in a department store and they see literally hundreds of moisturizers, wrinkle creams, anti-aging lotions and serums and face cremes. Even our website lists five separate products under moisturizers. Why so many?

Well, when it comes to skin care, one size does not fit all. The cream you use on your neck may irritate your sensitive eyes. A specially formulated night repair cream may be too heavy to wear under makeup as your daily face cream.  Additionally, each person’s skin is different based on factors like age, ethnic background, environment, climate, and lifestyle choices. So how do you pick what you need to use?

Some of it is based on that very word “need.” What do you need? If you notice that your eyes often have dark circles under them, then an under-eye cream is an easy choice. If you are concerned about the skin on your neck, there are special formulations created just for your neck.

Finally, there is also a chart we have made up that is based on several factors. The first is whether your skin is oily, dry or a combination of the two. That factor alone is one that must be taken into consideration so that an appropriate face cream can be formulated to work with your skin. The next factor is the condition of your skin. Many people who live in warmer climates have a lot of sun damage. Other women are dealing with skin conditions such as rosacea that have to be taken into consideration. Finally, it happens in puberty but also during menopause women experience the blemishes and breakouts of acne. In order to help you decide what products to use, we must take all those factors and mix ingredients that can be most effective with your particular skin.

So take a look at our Skin Care Regimen Page. It makes suggestions based on what you know about your skin so that you don’t have to wonder which moisturizer or cleanser would be the best one for you. We take the guess work out and put the anti-aging ingredients in!
