Why Skin Care Doesn't Work!

Written by Yvonne Finn

Skin Care Products Wont Work.....! No skin care or cosmetic product,( or any other product for that matter) will work, unless you use it!

Sounds obvious, right? But don't we all have a "graveyard" drawer of unused and never to be used skin care items? Bought on a whim or from convincing sales pressure, with little thought of how they fit our needs, wants, lifestyles, etc.?

So, what properties make-up your ideal skin care? 1.Ease of use? Unless it fits into your lifestyle, you wont use it! It 's that simple! Unless you're Oprah or some other celebrity, with others at your beck and call, your skin care is your responsiblity and with most of us already running on over-time, fast and easy is a not just a bonus, it's a must!

2.Natural and environmentally-friendly? A growing number of consumers are choosing to use earth-friendly, cruelty-free, natural skin care and cosmetic products. The skin care industry is responding and there are now many sources where these items can be bought. Choosingrepparttar most natural skin care we can find is just a part ofrepparttar 138508 other healthy choices we make, such as not smoking, balancing our diet, exercising and getting enough rest.

3. Cost? Skin care doesn't have to be ridiculously expensive to work! I have seen a jar of face cream that cost $1000.00! I have never and would never use it. There is no need to spend that amount on skin care, when there are more cost effective alternatives, that work just as well. Believe me...I know! Whenever, I have a facial or massage, my soft skin, immediately becomesrepparttar 138509 talk ofrepparttar 138510 salon or spa. They (the staff) want to know my "secret". When I do reveal my secret and how reasonably priced it is, they always want to try it. Don't makerepparttar 138511 mistake of buying skin care or cosmetic products without knowing your skin type. No matter how high quality or how high pricedrepparttar 138512 product is, if it is not designed for your skin type, you're defeating it's purpose and wasting your time and money.
