Confusion Marketing - How they get you to buy more skincare products .
With new creams and ingredients being launched onto the market all the time, it can be confusing. Unless you're in the position to spend hours on your skin care routine every day by using all of these different lotions, you'll need to pick and choose which are right for you.

4 Skincare Products You Can't Do Without

Here's a 'foundation' minimum that we recommend you use:

Sunscreen: You NEED this. It's essential for preventing sun damage and lowering your risk of developing skin cancer. If you use only one product, sunscreen should be it. A lotion with SPF 15 moisturizes, protects with SPF, and smoothes skin AHAS and vitamin C.

Eye cream: The skin under your eyes is more delicate and dry than the skin on the rest of your face. Purchase an eye cream which treats the eye area with more emollient moisturizers.

Face Cream With Retinols: Worried about wrinkles and pigmentation spots? A face cream with retinol is order of the day. Use it in place of your regular moisturizer after washing your face in the evening.

Body lotion: A lotion with AHAs is recommended for your whole body. For dry spots put on extra lotion before bed and let it soak in while you are sleeping.

A lot of people with sensitive skin have reverted to natural skin care solutions. Many people use natural skin care formulas to care for their skin at home.

Thanks Doc. Sunblock is definitely the most important product in my regime. I've seen what the sun can do to the skin and it's not pretty. I have some aunts who have worked indoors all their lives and they have some of the most beautiful skin for their age.

Nice post! It never hurts to learn a bit more ;-)

I'd like to add some extra information:

- Retinol has a second, more famous name: Vitamin A. As a natural antioxidant, it works wonders for your skin, alleviating the signs of skin aging; you can find Vitamin A in foods like spinach, liver, carrots and eggs.

- The famous AHA's (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) are a common ingredient of many skin care products, but they should be handled with care: people with sensitive skin may experience redness and irritation after AHA application. Also, a FDA report has associated AHA's with increased skin sensitivity to sunlight.

I agree sunscreen and retinol are a most. I use a night cream with 1 % Retinol every night and it make my skin texture looking so perfect! I also notice that after 2 weeks of use some brown spot I had were completely gone. Every one should use a good Retinol cream for night time.
