Which is the Best Skin Care Product?

There is really nothing like a best skin care product. There really cannot be any thing like "The best skin care product", because skin care products work differently for different people (based on the skin type to some extent). A product that is the "best skin product" for one person might end up being the worst for another person. So, a more logical question to ask would be " What is the best skin care product for my type of skin?".

Types of Skin:

There are five major types of skin. Understanding your skin type is the best approach to your personal skin care.

1- Normal Skin :
It is the type of skin that we’d all love to have. This is the “healthy” type of skin. This type is the not too oily, not too dry type, characterized by few blemishes, generally firm and smooth with small pores. When you pull the skin away from the bony structure, it springs back to normal position. Lines and wrinkles are appropriate for age.

2- Dry Skin :
Due to environmental exposure to harsh elements and very often lack of water skin may flake off and feel tight in your face. It may lack natural oils, may look rather flaky with small pores, blemishes and blackheads. Without adequate moisture, dry skin can easily become chapped. As dry skin ages, it’s more likely than other types to become wrinkly.

3- Oily Skin :
Skin may look oily and coarse, may have recurring blackheads, acne and large pores. The texture of skin is thick; the touch is often sticky. This type is usually youthful- looking due to the presence of oil on the skin. Often, individuals with oily skin have a tendency to develop acne in their teen and middle years, and overgrown oil glands, or sebaceous hyperplasia, in the middle and late years.

4- Combination Skin :
It varies according to your skin type. This is the Jekyll and Hyde type of skin, often with split personality. This type may be characterized as oily on the T-zone (the area that stretches from the forehead down to the nose and chin), and dry to normal on the cheeks and around the eye area.

5- Sensitive Skin :
People with sensitive skin are the most prone to allergies, rash, sting, and burns. This type of skin gets irritated easily and can go very red and blotchy. This type will have a lot more trouble to environmental factors and tends to be very sensitive to cosmetics.

It is only through experiment (and awareness) that you can find the "Best skin care product( for you) product". Know your skin and take care of it.
It is your glory to being healthy and beautiful.
