The proliferation of beauty formulas and its media attention have caused much confusion in the minds of most women concerning their own personal skin care routine. Bathroom cabinets, counters and drawers are filled to overflowing with a myriad of products all seeking to tap into the proverbial fountain of youth, yet skin problems persist.
Your looks have a lot to do with how you take care of your skin. The manner in which you take care of your skin and treat your body will normally reflect either positively or negatively on your face. Skin care technology has increased greatly over the years allowing us to enhance and manipulate the aging process in ways once thought impossible. Formulas containing sunblock or sunscreens give amazing sun protection, mattifying ingredients combat oily skins, luxurious night creams and serums plump faces with collagen and retinoid that seek to erase time.
It is imperative to take charge of your skin by trying to understand the effects of stress, diet, environment and time play wreaking havoc on your skin. There is no time like the present to take charge of your skin care regimen, make informed decisions regarding formulas and form a consistent routine which would enable you to turn back the hands of time and reap great benefits in your years to come.
Although genetics play an important role in the way in which we age, taking care of our bodies and skin consistently is key to enhancing one’s natural beauty. Always remember, good skin equals good makeup, there is no way in getting around that truth.
