What Do Ingredients Say About Your Product?

What Do Ingredients Say About Your Product?
Have you read the list of ingredients on your skin care products lately? What a site to behold! Are they safe for your skin? Are they even working? The first five ingredients give you the highest concentration in a product. These are broken down into percentages. Percentages are rarely if ever, listed on a container for your viewing. So just know, that the amount of a given ingredient is less and less as it nears the end of the paragraph.

You buy products based on a challenge you have or a condition you're treating. Some are over the counter and others are prescribed by your dermatologist. So, what should you do?

Get To Know Your Ingredients

By doing your homework, you can make sure the products you're using are addressing your specific challenge. Get to know what ingredients have which properties. Yes there are differences between an active ingredient and a filler.

Your Skin Will Speak To You

By applying certain ingredients to your skin, it will either work, or not work. Although everyone's skin is different, if you're working with benzoyl peroxide for acne, you should see results in two to three weeks. If not, your skin could be telling you that you need a stronger ingredient or a stronger combination of ingredients.

Is Your Ingredient List Short?

A long list of ingredients can often signal fillers, color, mineral oil, alcohol and artificial fragrance. It's a good idea to have a cosmetic glossary programmed into your phone so that you can check the list to make sure you're getting the right product for your skin care needs.

Storing Your Skin Care Products

Not getting the results you want? Has the quality of your product been compromised based on where you store it? If you're using products that contain plant extracts, it's better to keep them away from direct sunlight. So instead of placing them on top of your vanity, it might be best to keep them in a cool place, such as underneath the vanity.

This is an on going learning curve. While you may not want to invest a lot of time, energy or money into knowing a lot about cosmetic ingredients, it is a good idea to know the basics.

As Always ...
