Anyone who has ever walked the aisles of a beauty specialty store will tell you that finding the best skin care products for facial treatments is hard. There are hundreds of products from cleansers to moisturizers, exfoliators, and anti-aging treatments, and more, from high-end beauty brands to drugstores and everything in between.  This makes picking the right products even harder. 

The key to the most effective skincare routine is that you use the products that are designed for your skin type and your specific needs. There’s no one-fit-for-all regimen, but there are products we use time and time again. The skincare space is ever-expanding, and narrowing down the list of products you should use can be tedious. Moreover, you may want to find ways to optimize your routine with the changing of seasons, bring new products into your regimen, or fight different skin issues with changing needs.

Knowing your skin type is the first step of developing an effective skincare routine. There are no bad products, but sometimes ingredients in the product interact differently on different skin types. People with sensitive and acne-prone skin need to be more careful while picking the ingredients to put on their faces. Oily skin can tolerate a wide range of skincare products and ingredients, even those that can cause irritation or breakouts to other skin types. Here are some suggested ingredients for different types of skin.

  • For Dry Skin:

Products containing lactic acid and shea butter are the best for you. These ingredients hydrate your skin while gently exfoliating it to bring radiance to dry skin.

  • For Oily Skin:

Pick the product that has alpha hydroxy acids (salicylic acid or glycolic acid), hyaluronic acid, and benzoyl peroxide. These ingredients control excess sebum production and keep the skin adequately hydrated according to the need.

  • For Sensitive Skin:

Look for ingredients such as oatmeal, aloe vera, and shea butter in the products you are going to use on your face. These ingredients are good moisturizers and are completely safe for any skin type.
