Many people know the importance of skincare and have kept using skin care products.
There is no shortage of girls who are still in the state of blind selection and wrong use, which not only did not improve the skin problem but also led to the problem getting worse.
This is because of do not know enough about how to buy skin care products.
Today, we will talk in detail about how to choose the right skincare products.
1. The choice of cleansing products
Generally speaking, the cleansing products on the market are saponified, surface active products, and so on.
Saponification products are commonly used for the composition of sodium hydroxide, some plant and animal oils, etc. Stronger cleansing power, dry skin after washing, and even oily skin are not recommended for daily use to avoid damage to the skin barrier.
For other skin types, it is even more inappropriate.
The ingredients commonly used in surface active products are sodium dodecyl ether sulfate, sodium dodecyl sulfate, sodium cocoyl alanine, sodium lauroyl glutamate, lauryl glucoside, decyl glucoside, etc.
Surface active products after washing the skin are moisturized, smooth, and not tight, and will not cause damage to the stratum corneum, medium dry, sensitive, combination, oily skin can find the right product in this type of product.
2. Choice of toner
The most important thing is that you can find the right product for your skin.
Toner, which is refreshing and clean, is often used for combination and oily skin.
Astringent water tightens pores and controls sebum secretion, often used for oily skin.
Alcohol is an ingredient that is currently allowed to be used in lotions.
For oily skin, you can use toners containing alcohol in moderation.
In autumn and winter, when the skin is dry, you can change to a more moisturizing product and not use it with high frequency to avoid skin intolerance.
Sensitive skin and skin with a damaged barrier should avoid using products containing alcohol.
Other skin types can be used at a low frequency according to skin needs with a cool skin feel.
Skin with acne and pimples can also use a toner containing salicylic acid topically or on the whole face to aid in the recovery of acne and pimples.
3. Selection of essence
Essence is arguably one of the most functional of all skin care products.
There are various effects, such as moisturizing, anti-aging, and so on. The focus of different essences is different.
If you want to solve the problem of dry skin, you can use moisturizing essence, if you want to solve the problem of pigmentation, you can use light spot essence.
If you want to solve the problem of sagging skin, sagging, or wrinkles, you can use the anti-aging essence.
To solve the problem of acne, pimple marks, and pockmarks, you can use an acne essence or an essence with exfoliating effect to promote the discharge of acne and pimples.
However, there is one point to note, if you have sensitive skin that is prone to redness and itching, you should not use anti-aging or acne-eliminating essence to avoid irritation to your skin.
