Choose wisely

A simple glance at any supermarket shelf can be daunting – there are so may products that claim to do so many things. Not only do you have to decide what you need, you also have to pick one that suits you best. Promises of prevention and quick fixes can be misleading though, so take it slow and examine what you are putting on your face before you slather it on.


Know your skin type first - is your skin dry, normal, sensitive, oily, or a combination? This knowledge forms the basis of all your product purchases, so this is important information.

Establish a daily skin care routine. For your skin to truly benefit from the products you choose, they have to be applied repeatedly. It generally takes a few weeks before you can see a difference, so be patient.


Don’t buy anything unless you understand it well. Do a bit of research and understand what you are using, as this can help protect you from unknowingly using harmful products of ingredients on your skin.

Don’t forget to check for sunscreen. Whether it is moisturizing or makeup, products that offer some kind of sunscreen help add an extra layer of protection for the skin.

Don’t hesitate to ask for help. If you are unsure about anything, ask someone to help you understand your skin and pick the right product to address your specific skin needs.

Trial and error

You may have your tried-and-true favorites, but it’s always a good idea to switch it up every now and then with something new. You never know when you might find something that gives you a boost, and leaves you feeling like a new person.
