3 Things to Consider Before Starting a Skincare Regimen

September 6, 2019

There many amazing companies with fantastic products that it’s understandable to feel torn in the moment of choosing. The reality is that there are products for any one and for almost any problem your skin is facing.

Not every product from a company might suit all your preferences and that is okay and normal– considering every skin is different. But if all their products work great then you are undoubtedly blessed!

Skincare is many things to some people little to others but if we really think about at this point, skin care is not only a necessity but in fact it’s a luxury and an experience. But if you are simply wondering where to begin—we got you.

These are a few things you need to think about before getting your hands on some goodies.

  1. What type of skin do you have?

Your skin type is probably the most important thing you need to know before purchasing any new products. Do you have acne prone, combination skin, dry skin, oily or sensitive skin? You can tell what skin type you have pretty easily, for example; if you struggle with breakouts, you have acne prone skin. People with an oily T-Zone are considered to have combination skin. If you’re oily all around…well you have oil skin and the same concept for dry skin. And if your skin gets easily irritated and red then you have sensitive skin.

Knowing your skin type is a great step to choosing the right products for you. The cleanser you use will depend heavily on your skin type.

  1. What are your current concerns?

For many people their skin concerns may range from dull skin, breakouts, irritation and age lines. What is certain in these situations is that the skin needs to be re balanced and unclogged of all dirt and toxins. A good cleanser and regular chemical exfoliation can start the process to brighter healthier skin. For aging concerns its great to use products that will hydrate plump and firm the skin. Consider your needs and search with this knowledge.

  1. Do you have ethical preferences?

A while back, this question might not have made any sense but in 2019 this has become very important. If you don’t want your products to be tested on animals or to have any animal related ingredients you should make sure that you do your research. Most companies will let you know loud and clear about this area of practice. Do you care if your products aren’t natural or organic? Most companies will let you know where thy stand in this category as well.

These are 3 simple thing to ask yourself when purchasing skincare for beginners. It gets far more complex than this but it’s a good place to start when trying to get to know you needs and preferences.
