What Should I Look For in Skincare Products? (Part 1)

Posted on the 04 February 2010 at 10:33

If you could wave a magic wand and turn back time, what would you do? I would definitely, without a doubt, have ever, gone on a sunbed, or indeed been any kind of sun worshipper.


It's easy to say that but for me, it's serious. I mean who wants to spend the rest of their 30s and 40s fighting the ravages of sun damage over and above the cost of doing so..well, it's time consuming as well!


Luckily there are procedures out there and some of them actually work and that includes skincare.


For me, one of the things I saw a great result with was botulinum toxins and fillers not to be confused with the over-use of them! Most people prefer the more subtle look and the question of "has she, hasn't she" is much better than the "I know what she's had done"!


That's where a good skincare regime comes in.

Look for skincare with clinical trials that show the products actually enter the skin, skincare that sits on top (apart from sunscreens) do very little and there are a variety of ingredients out there that claim to do something. Look for something that is in a topical form and that is already in our skin: L-Ascorbic acid and Growth Factors to name a few.


That's it for now, but join me as I expand on the different skincare ingredients in future blogs!

I agree whole-heartedly with Tracey. I use some of the wide range of superior products Tracey distributes and wouldn't use anything else now. I've never been a sun worshiper so that's obviously helped, but everyone is surprised when I tell them my age. They always say I look at least 10 years younger than I actualy am (maybe they're just being kind to an old person). I swear by my daily dose of L-Ascorbic acid and work on the 'foundations', using topicals that acually penetrate at a deeper level plus an SPF30 to protect. Looking forward to hearing more ...
