Standing in the front of the mirror one night getting ready to start my skincare routine I got to thinking about a few things I have learned over the years.
As I was standing there remembering back to the days when I needed just cleanser/ moisturizer, eye cream & sun screen and that was it!!
With age comes more products! Now I am using cleanser, exfoliates, eye creams, serums, moisturizers, night cream, specially products!! That had me thinking about something I remembered I had read by Mr. Stassler president of Reviva Labs had said about the truth behind skincare products overall. He should know right?
He said one product can’t do it all! Among the ocean of skin-care claims in today’s marketplace, you’ll find the product that boasts it’s the total answer to stopping skin aging and repairing past damage.
Of course, this is a myth!
First, skin needs a program. Proper cleansing, exfoliation, antioxidant protection, hydration, oxygenation, stimulation … as well as other individual needs. What’s more, skin needs change with climate, emotions, stress, illness, etc.
And as I am now 50 I swear sometimes its upkeep is what I am mostly doing. And with stress I am now getting breakouts like I haven’t had since I was a teen.. what the crap is that?? I try to use the least number of products but that isn’t always going to work for what I personally need.
There is no magic bullet when it comes to skincare, there is no way one product will do everything you need. Some ingredients have to be stronger than they would be if they were just that, not mixed with a bunch of others. Some products stop working over time. It doesn’t matter the price tag, cheap or over $100.00!
You may not realize it but your skin can get ‘bored’ of what you are using as well! Its like your hair care, you change up your shampoos right?
Why not change up your skincare products? Just something to think about the next time to go looking at skincare..
