Strolling the aisles of your favorite department store in search of the latest and greatest products to take care of your skin is fun. If you have serious goals for your skin it is more than just pretty packaging that appeals to you. Your product choices are about ingredients and their ability to change your skin. How can you tell if a product is actually working for your skin? How much time does it take to see a difference? Or is it time to toss your existing regimen for a new one? This week we get to the bottom of these questions and help you decide if your current skincare routine and products is really getting you the best results possible.
Give it Time
When reviewing your current product choices and their effectiveness it is important to consider the length of time you have been using them. It takes time for products to make a difference the time period could be anywhere from 3-6 months. Problems like hyperpigmentation and acne require a change on a cellular level and usually respond to consistent treatments performed over time as opposed to a single effort. Of course that does not mean that you cannot see an immediate difference with some products. Many folks using our YELLE Skincare Awakening Milk & Honey Cleanser for example experience immediately softer and smoother skin. On the other hand we do suggest using one of our YELLE Awakening Skin Care Systems for a full three months to experience the most promising results.
Consider Your Routine
Skin care generally falls into three categories: Maintenance, preventive, or corrective care. Maintenance products and preventative products like those in our YELLE Essential System help maintain the skin. Preventative products feature ingredients that protect the skin from environmental stressors and free radical damage such as antioxidants, peptides or AHA’s for controlled exfoliation. Corrective products specifically address certain skin conditions and concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles and oxidative stress. Each of the YELLE Skincare Awakening serums provides important preventative and corrective skin care ingredients. As you assess your current regimen evaluate and re-evaluate why you made the original investment in a certain skincare product in the first place was it to prevent, correct or maintain? As you observe your skin and the purpose of your purchase you will be able to determine if a particular product still has a place in your routine.
Look At Your Skin
If a products is irritating and causing problems for you consistently when you use it, it might be one to toss. The skin has ways of communicating with you when it is reacting negatively to problematic ingredients. Make sure to check in with a professional if you are unsure of what is normal for your skin some things such as peeling, slight tingling and other side effects could be normal for the skin, while other side effects like burning, itching, and rash are less common and could indicate a problem. It is always best to play it safe and speak with a professional about what skin care products you are using and how it is working for you.
