Ideally, before commencing any skin care products, you should research and analyse the component ingredients to ensure that only products proved to be beneficial and therapeutic are used. Unfortunately this can be overwhelming especially since there is so much unclear and misleading information. It is important to realise that the majority of products provide quick gratification through looking, smelling and feeling good. However, they yield no visible or lasting benefit. Often components used to make products comfortable are counterproductive for your skin. Unfortunately most currently marketed anti-ageing products are useless and do not deliver. This is usually because their active ingredient is ineffective, too low in concentration or too large a molecule to penetrate the skin.
