Are you shopping for skin care products, but not sure where to start? Here are a few tips to help your product search go smoothly:

Identify Your Specific Needs

There are a lot of products out there, and it can be easy to get overwhelmed and choose the wrong thing. But a dark spot corrector won’t deal with inflammatory acne, and that top rated moisturizing lotion may not be enough to combat eczema. When searching for skin care products, you want to come up with specific goals. This will allow you to narrow down your search to products that deal directly with those goals.

Read Skin Care Product Reviews from People Like You

Most websites that sell skin care products will have review sections where you can see what other consumers are saying about this product. But in order to get the most out of skin care product reviews, you have to go deeper than whatever average ratings show up at the top of the page.

Skim the individual entries and look for consumers who seem to be coming from the same skin care concerns and product expectations that you do. If their skin care reviews address specific ways the skin care product improved the problem that you both share, you’ve probably found a good product. However, if they’re vague about the effects, or worse, dissatisfied, it’s probably better to keep on shopping.

At this point it’s important to keep in mind that testimonials are not the same as skin care product reviews. They may not even be from real clients and they’re only ever positive.

Ask Your Doctor, Dermatologist or Beauty Specialist

Professionals go through a lot of patients and clients, which means they get plenty of feedback on the products they recommend. Over time, many of them will develop favorites based on what products patients say are working. When you ask them about top acne treatments or skin rejuvenation products, they’ll probably have an answer ready for you.
