Hello, everyone! Today I’m going to be doing a little post on giving a small checklist and some points that you might need to consider before purchasing any skincare products. If you want an even more in-depth information on some products then I have a video up that gives out my entire collection of favourite skincare products right here. I have also collaborated with reviews.com for a component of this products! (not sponsored however). Without any further ado, let’s get started with this short checklist!
RULE NO. 1: Do not blindly follow blogger’s skincare routines! Make sure to research the products well before buying it since it’s not going to be the blogger’s fault that it didn’t work for you. It’s just because you have different types of skin. Just take this into account next time you look at someone else’s skincare routine!
Also note this checklist is not recommendations for specific products, this is just a small guide for you just so it’s easier for you to purchase skincare products that has the higher chance of doing something positive to your skin.
Now onto the checklist, I’m going to introduce you to a little “three-tier hierarchy” I have set up when purchasing skincare products which I think can cater to a lot of people who want to develop their skincare routine.
This four-tier hierarchy is goes from the first thing you should think about to the last thing you should think about:
The ingredients are the ones that are going to get you results, right? The first four ingredients are usually the most active and potent within the product so keep an eye out on that first.
What ingredients are going to treat your skin problems? Hyaluronic acid for preserving moisture, collagen for anti-ageing etc. Researching is always important ESPECIALLY if the pricing is high, it’s always safer to make sure that you’re buying something that will actually help with your skin.
Also, reviews.com has a dense, intricate guide on how to find eye creams which you can find here because in my experiences as well, eye creams are one of the hardest things to find. Because that part of your face is so sensitive you need to be careful as to what you’re going to be placing on there. So go on and check their guide out because it definitely has helped me get some pointers on how to find the right eye cream.
Type of Product
Not everyone needs a 20-step skincare routine in their life. Sometimes that kind of routine works for someone who has very selective skin. It’s all about experimentation and what your skin can take. My suggestion is that you start off with a toner, moisturizer and sunscreen in your morning routine. For your night routine, a toner and a night cream. If you’re really new and not very acquainted with skincare then hold off on the hundreds of serums, essences, face oils etc. Just try and start with this while following the first two steps.
Pricing does not define quality. Quality defines quality. Don’t let that slide in anything from skincare to makeup. Nothing else should define quality besides the quality as in the results it gives you at the end of the day. So don’t just fish through expensive skincare products and expect them to work wonders. I have made that mistake, it’s not always the case.
And that is it, my lovelies! I hope you found this little guide useful and that it helps you out next time you try developing your skincare routine a little more. I will see you again very soon sometimes this week with another video update. Bye, lovelies! – A.
