Facial Skin Care Products

Facial Skin Care Products by Gail Leino

Facial Skin Care Products are available for a range of skin types and purposes. The most common skin types are Normal, Oily, Dry and Combination. It is important to pick a facial skin care product that won't aggravate the type of skin you have causing irritation, inflammation and redness.

Facial skin care products are available to treat specific or combinations of conditions. There are products with astringents like witch hazel in them to help tighten skin, Alpha-Hydroxy Acids to help the skin's sloughing process, Antioxidants for the encouragement of new skin growth, and UV blockers to protect the skin from the Sun's damaging rays and other types of skin care products. There are some skin care products made solely for the eyes. Since the skin is a sensitive area with thinner skin it is prone to its own special problems, wrinkles, bags and darker areas.

A big problem can be sinking of the eye and skin around the eye as you age. There are also products that help to puff up skin that starts to sag as the collagen production in the skin slows down. Acne skin care products are cleansers or lotions meant to be placed on the skin right after washing and they usually involve continual treatment of skin even after the acne goes away. Some acne products are Benzoyl Peroxide, Resorcinol, Salicylic Acid, and Sulfur. Each is designed to attack a specific cause of acne, excessive oil production, clumping of skin cells, and acne causing bacteria.

A clay facial mask once a week removes impurities and draws oils and bacteria out of the skins pores to leave the skin cleaner. It also helps to soothe the skin reducing redness and dry patches and lifting away dead skin cells. You can finish with a little astringent Witch Hazel to help close up the pores.
