Finding Your Way in the World of Skincare

As long as I can remember, my mother has had a strict nightly skin care regiment that she would repeat in the morning as soon as she woke up. Different creams were layered on top of others and covered every inch of her face. As a child, I attributed the routine to being a "mom thing," something I would never understand, but now seeing her youthful face so well preserved in her early sixties, I find myself begging for advice!
In the world of skin care, there are so many choices; it's hard to know where to begin. An experiment testing serums took a toll for the worst and I found the anti-aging products to be irritating and harsh. Other creams proved much too greasy, causing breakouts and acne. I had almost completely given up until I discovered Kiehl's. I began using their Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado and almost instantly fell in love. The formula is easy to apply and stays in place, so there's no need to worry about the product traveling into your eye. At a decent price, there is a generous amount of cream that could last as long as 6 months. The skin around my eyes feel moisturized and soft and I look forward to applying this product both day and night.
The next step in my endeavor was to find a decent moisturizer that could hydrate my face without causing breakouts. Having had enormous luck with my Kiehl's eye cream, I looked to them once more for a decent moisturizer. I stumbled upon Kiehl's Blue Herbal Moisturizer, a light oil-free product that mattifies skin, addresses acne and offers a cooling sensation. My skin feels fresh and my complexion is clearer than ever.
The key to finding the perfect creams for your skin begins with a little research. Take a look at a company website and read the product description wherein you will, most likely, find a detailed account of what cream is appropriate for whom. Kiehl's offers a brochure with each product corresponding to a certain age group. If you are still at odds with your decision, ask a salesperson who works specifically with a certain line of skincare product. Their main objective is to make a sale but they can also be extremely knowledgeable about the product they're selling.
Lastly, ask for samples. There's always a little apprehension that goes along with requesting freebies, but everyone's skin is different and skincare products can be a costly investment. Samples can save you from making a horrible mistake.
Eventually, your skin will require different methods of treatment. You won't be able to use the same skin care regiment you used in your twenties when your fifty, but you need to start somewhere. Age is a factor in what product you use, but so is environment and overall skin sensitivity, so take your time and find what works best for you. Once you discover a routine you like, you'll never regret the hard work that you put into preserving the health of your skin.
