How did you discover your favorite skincare products?

My frustration in finding a skincare line for my skin is growing. I've spent hundreds on all kinds of lotions--from Arbonne to Zia. None have helped reduce the fine lines or give me a dewy look. What did u do to find your fav face cream or lotion? Go to a dermatologist?

The only product I pledge by is ¨The Miracle Effect Get Your Skin BAck¨. Its Ayurvedic, 100 % natural and oh! its a miture of herbs to be consumed internally with water. My smokers skin scars are gone, texture is more even, the under eye fine lines gone, and acne has stopped completely. I was shocked that there exists a product which uses flaxseed, fenugreem, neem and amla. if u look up their benefits individually, you would be surprised. You should google the product and see if its available. They are usually out of stock. Good luck

I will say go see a dermatologist to get some professional suggestions. Moreover, try to change your skin condition via diet. Try to eat more fruits, vegetables, and foods containing omega 3/6/9 fatty acids and antioxidants. I found some articles that might be helpful: http://www.womenshealthmag.com/beauty/foods-for-healthy-skin http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20616602,00.html http://www.fitnessmagazine.com/recipes/healthy-eating/superfoods/best-foods-for-good-skin/

I live in the UK and have used Simple for many years. I have reached the age when I feel that I need something with much more substance and while searching the web some time ago I came across http://www.monsiaskincare.com/uk/worldwide.html I was very impressed with the overviews, reviews and full list of ingredients and the fact that there was a 30 day money back policy, no questions asked. I thought if a company is willing to back it's product in this way I certainly am willing to give it a try. I am so glad that I did - I bought the whole enchilada! The day cream is great for UK sun with SPF15 but it is the night repair cream that has really impressed me. My skin feels rejuvenated and now it glows. I no longer need to wear foundation to even out my skin tone and my age spot is slowly fading! Love it.

Trial and error is never a good idea for your skin, as this may will leave you with dark or skin burn from the harmful chemicals of the beauty product. It always safe to use natural lotions and home remedies to look nice. One must know there skin type accordingly can chose there beauty product.

Before going for any type of lotions, cream or gel, first you need to know what exactly your problem is and what is the cause of your problem. The best answer i have is using Vitamin C and Kojic Acid. Both kojic acid and vitamin C is highly beneficial for the skin. Vitamin C helps in maintaining the elasticity of the skin. The skin elasticity is maintained due to the presence of elastin and collagen production. In contrast to this, kojic acid is highly demanded and recommended due to its skin lightening property that makes the skin look youthful and glowing. Therefore, both kojic acid and vitamin C is good for maintaining the condition of skin. Because of poor synthesis of elastin and collagen, wrinkles and sagging of skin occurs with increase in the age.

My best friend Laura gave me a pack of natural facial wipes and facial masks that she bought online. I am fond of using and trying some different facial masks and my best friend knows it. She also use this facial masks and she recommends me to use this too. I am so surprised because in just one apply my skin is smoother and brighter than before.

I read from a blog about the benefits of Vitamin C serum to the skin. Serums has the ability to go deeper into the skin and Vitamin C brighten the skin and help reduce the appearance of pigmentation and age spots. I researched online and came across Triple Action Vitamin C Serum by Voilave, I found it on Amazon. I'm so happy that I tried the product, it made my skin smooth, refreshed and younger looking. This product is affordable and works well for me. Try it too. :D

I discovered that Vitamin C is a powerful Anti-oxidant that works on the collagen synthesis and fades pigmentation on the surface of the skin. So I have tried this brand named Triple Action Vitamin C Serum by VoilaVe from Amazon. This has an anti aging ingredient. I have also seen on youtube that we can also make our own Serum, you need vegetable glycerine + water + vit.C powder but if you don't have the time and patience to do all this just order it from Amazon :) ***removed link***

My friend sells for Rodan + Fields and I love the redefine. She tried to get me to try it about two years ago and I resisted, but I gave in a year ago and the results love the results. It's a bit pricey, but I'm happy with my skin. Here is a link to where I buy it. https://jordanwelker.myrandf.biz/Shop/REDEFINE

There are tons of products that we can actually find anywhere ... What matters is how you actually do a little research first, what is this product, is this good for your skin and if you know someone who have actually used it. Just to share a bit about the products that I am using. I have a sensitive skin so all the products that was recommended should be odorless and colorless which means this are mostly free from any potential allergens. And since I'm on my early 30's i have now spotted some fine lines and for that I am using Triple Action Vitamin C Serum by VoilaVe, a friend of mine shared it when she ordered hers at Amazon. Vitamin C Serum is an anti aging ingrdient and it's a powerful Anti-oxidant that works on the collagen synthesis and fades pigmentation on the surface of the skin. Check this out too :)

Skin care products which suits your skin and give good results are always your favorite one. My skin is dry and i tried many products but nothing suited my skin, then one of my friend suggested me to try Yllume luxury skin care products, i tried it for 2 weeks and got amazing results. Yllume products are made with natural ingredients and do not have any side effects. So, i will also suggest to everyone to go for luxury products if you really love your skin and want it to always look younger forever.

I have also tried several kinds of products with 3-7 steps. Never completely satisfied with the results with the amount of money I spent. My cousin introduced me to a product she had been using and was getting great results. The nice thing is it is simple and effective. I wash my face at night and put on the night cream, then in the morning I rinse my face and put on the day cream. It not only has been proven to help with wrinkles, but also texture and discoloration. I am loving my Nerium.

It solves the many step products out there and 30 day guarantee is great. Clinical study shows an average of 30% improvement which is impressive. I use a product that compares with Nerium only it offers a 35% average improvement but we have seen up to 78% improvement in 28 days. It goes on smoothly without the need for water, smells very nice (very light scent) and you don't need to wash it off. The routine is - cleans your skin and massage it in morning and night with 2 pumps each time. For all skin types, non toxic, easy to use. L'dara is very new. AMA tested and acknowledged by some pretty impressive people.

If you can find a serum that gives you an unconditional money back guarantee to try it then it can be a no-risk adventure. If the product really has clinical studies by a 3rd party that proves results and not just science claims, then the choice is even easier. As well, if the ingredients are safe and free from: the use of parabens, mineral oils, paraffin, nitrosamines, phthalates, triclosan, synthetic colours or fragrances, SLS, SLES, or animal-derived ingredients. I have looked at quite a few and there's not many that fall into my criteria.

I found it overwhelming when I went to the skin care counters in the big stores - they all claimed to do the same thing! I asked a fine young lady about what results to expect from her well-known product line. She told me that I would start to see results probably into my 3rd month - it would cost me over $100. a month to maybe see some results? I was pretty frustrated. I heard from a friend what she was using and showed me some before and after pictures - results in under 4 weeks and only $90. spent. So I decided to try it too. Loving it so far!
