We would love to assume that anything being sold to use on our faces and bodies are safe, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Many mainstream brands care very little about safety, testing, and proving the results you promise. Here’s the best way to tell which products are bad for your skin and which ones will actually make a difference in your wrinkles.
The skincare industry has been using buzzwords for decades to convince people that their products will provide any real results. Sadly, many people are left spending hundreds of dollars a year on mediocre products that have no proven results. Many of these companies don’t accept returns of their products because deep down they know, you’re not going to see a difference in your skin.
Instead of taking a huge gamble on results, opt for purchasing products that have scientifically proven ingredients so that you know they work. Even better, finding products that were formulated by medical professionals like Dr. Shelton did with our entire South Beach Skin Lab routine will be able to help make a real difference in your skin. Also, look for products that offer a result guarantee like a 30-day money-back option so you can try the products and make sure they’re right for you.
One of the biggest things that will make a difference in tightening wrinkles and sagging skin is the ingredients that you use on your face. So many drugstore brands, and even some luxury brands, pack their products with harmful ingredients. This is because it’s simply cheaper to use bad ingredients than it is to use natural one which cost more to formulated with. There is also very little regulation about what can go into products so a lot of big-name brands take advantage of that loophole.
The damage may not be evident right away but using bad ingredients will age your skin faster over time. Instead of risking your health and your skin, stick to products that boast a list of natural and effective ingredients. Not only are these ingredients better for you but they can be up to 5X more effective than cheaper and unsafe ingredients.
Your Skin Is Reacting
When you use your products, does your skin feel worse after? Side effects like redness, sensitivity, or even oiliness or dryness can be a sign that your skin is reacting badly to whatever products you are using. Not only can this be uncomfortable, but it can cause long term damage and signs of aging to your skin that can be nearly impossible to reverse.
If you have noticed any negative changes in your skin after applying your products, it is probably because you’re using low-quality ingredients and your skin isn’t happy. Switching to a proven skincare routine will not only help give you real results but you’ll notice an improvement in the health of your skin quickly. In the long term, a high-quality routine with a focus on natural ingredients will also help stop wrinkles and firm up sagging skin so you can look younger, brighter, and happier than ever before!
