Beautiful young female portrait isolated on white perfect skinHave you bought product after product only to be disappointed in the results? A lot of skincare product advertisements are designed to get you to buy, and they don’t always offer the information about who will benefit from their products. 

The bottom line is that the best skincare products aren’t the same for everyone. If you want to make sure that you are getting the right products for you, you might need some assistance. There are a lot of factors in choosing the best skincare regimen, so it is best to have a trained aesthetician assist you. Here are some of the things that need to be considered.

Is your skin oily or dry?

Your scalp produces an oily substance called sebum. This is natural and necessary for scalp health. But when these natural oils are produced at abnormal levels, it can cause a severe reaction in the skin. You could get very oily skin, which can also lead to clogged pores. 

And, believe it or not, sometimes your skin gets oily because it is dry. When your skin isn’t hydrated enough, the glands will produce extra sebum to try to make up for it. Unfortunately, that sebum doesn’t actually hydrate your skin and can cause skin conditions to worsen. Which leads us to…

Is your skin hydrated? 

Oily skin isn’t the only sign you can have from dry skin. Dehydrated skin may also cause flaking and roughness. It also tightens the skin, causing lines and wrinkles to form. The best way to make sure your skin is always hydrated is to choose the right moisturizer.

Do you have sensitive skin?

If you have sensitive skin, you are even more limited in what will be effective for you. If you tend to have allergic reactions to a lot of chemicals or medications, you should be especially careful of your skincare regimen. If you have a skin condition, you should check with an MD like Dr. Hermann before using any new product.
