This is something that comes up often in the beauty world: are luxury high-end products better for your skin than less well-known, more affordable brands?
It’s a valid question and you would think that it would make sense that the more you spend, the better quality product you would get. But this is just not accurate.
Good skin care products come down to so much more than just a fancy label. So, let’s break it down.
These 5 steps will ensure you purchase the proper products for your specific skin type, follow them religiously and good skin is yours for the taking!
Get to know your skin
Ever had someone rave about a product and recommend it to you, only to find yourself disappointed with the results? This is because your skin is unique to you, so what works for one person may not work for you.
Getting to know your skin and figuring out your exact skin type is the very first step in your skincare journey. Check out this article to figure out your skin type or book an appointment with a dermatologist who can guide you in the right direction.
You may realize you have different skin types in different areas, and you might even have been using the incorrect products.
Become familiar with ingredients
Okay, so just because a product has a fancy label and a fancy price tag to match slapped on the front doesn’t mean it contains good ingredients.
The next step is getting familiar with ingredients and learning to read labels like a pro.
Certain ingredients will always be top of our list like Shea butter, coconut oil, and decadent cocoa butter. These ingredients are readily accepted by all skin types and will leave your body glowing with healthy hydration.
All of CaLoveCo.’s contain these luxurious ingredients, but at a price you can afford.
Choose the right products
Once you know your skin type, become more familiar with ingredients and are able to decode product labels like a pro, you have the green light to start purchasing products using all of this new-found knowledge.
Certain ingredients are great for dry skin, especially in the winter. CaLoveCo.’s body butters all contain avocado oil to keep your skin looking its best even in the peak of winter.
Developing a consistent routine is the key to healthy, happy skin.
You can’t use a product a few times and expect to see results. You need to use them regularly because real, nutrient-rich ingredients don’t offer superficial, temporary results. They offer long-term skin benefits, but need time to start working their magic.
Check your results
Last, but not least, keep track of your progress. If after 3 months you aren’t noticing any positive results then it may be time to move on and try something else.
Don’t get discouraged! With dedication and commitment, you’ll soon find exactly what works for you.
