It’s unbelievable just how much difference there is in skincare products from different companies. They vary from genuine, most effective skincare items http://cutify.co to absolute rubbish (that just smells good!).
I used to think skincare products were all the same, and that it was a waste of money paying for the expensive ones because (I thought) they were no better than others with moderate price tags.
Wrong. I was VERY wrong.
Skincare products vary because this $16 billion a year industry attracts both solid researcher-based companies with high standards and high performing products, and low-end, rip-off manufacturers who don’t know what they are doing when they mix together standard formula compounds to make generic, often heavily synthetic products.
When you are looking for natural skincare products that work effectively you need to look at the background of the company that makes them.
Here are some basic questions you can probably find answers to from the web site of the company you are considering, and from the forums and blogs which discuss skincare products and the most effective skincare techniques.
Does the company do it’s own research and development? Is it sourcing all its products itself? Is it at the cutting edge of this wonderful industry, that cares for the skin of so many millions of people, or is it following behind the leaders? Does it have its own efficient lines of distribution or rely on clumsy, slow ways of distributing that inevitably make their products expensive in the stores because too many people are handling them along the way?
Second thing you need to do is look at the ingredients of the product you are thinking of using. Again, ask the basic questions.
How many active ingredients are in the product? Are they safe? (I know one manufacturer, for example, which only uses ingredients that can be ingested — so you can actually safely EAT its skincare products! They don’t get more natural and safe than that.) Do they have clinical trial results that prove their product works? Do they use the optimum amount of every ingredient? In fact, do their products in the store have the same amounts of all the ingredients as they prototype which was lab tested? Will the different ingredients compliment each other so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of the effect the individual ingredients would have on their own?
In my own research I have noticed that three ingredients can form the basis of a very effective skincare product. So I recommend you check if they are in the product you are considering.
These three foundation ingredients are:
This is almost a miracle ingredient for skincare. Clinical trials conducted to rigorous standards have conclusively shown it reduces fine lines and wrinkles in skin. Further, it makes skin more firm, soft and glowing. If you can find this in a skincare product it will have a lot of benefits.
This is the second ingredient I recommend, because this (equally) cutting edge compound can move through seven layers of skin to deliver what can only be called a ‘dramatic’ anti-wrinkle effect. It is the buzz of the industry at the moment. Try to find products that use it.
Once again the smooth skinned Japanese have come up with a winner. This is an extract from seaweed found in Japan and it helps to make skin elastic and smooth. Which translates into ‘youthful’ in my books.
Sorry that there is no easy, automatic answer to the question, ‘Which is the most effective skincare product?’ But now you can at least make your pick of good products thoughtfully, since you have my guide to the two things to ask questions about (the manufacturer and the ingredients he uses) and my suggestion that three ingredients in particular are cutting edge and highly effective.
In fact, you might like to have a look at my web site because I’ve got some more information about these things that visitors like you have found useful. Plus my recommendation of a company that makes good skincare products, incorporating all three of the ingredients I recommend.
