An idea on what skin care products to purchase has already been listed in this guide – but what brand should you purchase exactly?
The industry for health and beauty is big – which is why you’ll find yourself choosing from dozens of possible skin care brand names. The fact is that there is no ‘best’ from all these choices. Your final purchase would depend largely on your skin and how it reacts to the product. For the sake of this guide however, listed are some of the most popular brands when it comes to skin care:
- Clean and Clear
- L’Oreal Paris
- Tom Ford
The last four in the list are considered “luxury” brands because they’re so much more expensive than other products in the market today. The first few names given however, are perfect for mid-range consumers. Most of these have a whole army of skin care products starting from cleansers to moisturizers.
DIY Skin Care Recipes
If you happen to have sensitive skin or simply want to use something you’ve made yourself, there are several DIY skin care recipes that you can try out:
The following items can work alone as cleansers without any added ingredients:
- Mashed avocado
Simply take whatever cleanser you have and smoothly massage it on your newly-washed face. Continue massaging for the next 2 minutes, making sure that every inch and crevice of the face is touched. When you’re done, wash it off with warm water. Do this at least twice a day.
To create a toner, combine the following ingredients:
- 1/3 part Apple cider vinegar, raw
- 2/3 part Filtered water
- 10 drops Lavender essential oil for normal skin types or frankincense essential oil for skins prone to acne or for mature users
Simply combine the ingredients in a container and shake well. Use it in the morning and before going to bed at night. This wonderful toner can help with acne problems and is gentle enough for people with sensitive skin. If you are an oily skin type, use ½ part vinegar and ½ part filtered water to accommodate the extra oil on your dermis.
There are several recipes available for DIY exfoliants including but not limited to the following items:
- Sugar with jojoba oil
- Baking Soda
- Ground Oatmeal with honey
To use them, simply combine the ingredients together (sugar with jojoba or oatmeal with honey) and start massaging it gently on your face. As for the baking soda, you can massage it on your skin directly with or without turning it into a paste first. Allow the DIY exfoliants to sit on your face for 3 to 5 minutes before washing it out with lukewarm water. Do this at least once a week.
