We all have a daily skin care routine that we go through whether we acknowledge that we do or not. There is the washing and treatment of our skin, not to mention any makeup that we may apply. But how do you know that the products you are using are the best for your skin, and will maximize the results you are looking for. We have compiled a little checklist to make sure that you have all of the products that you need to look your best, and the information you need to choose the highest quality products.
1. Look for a line of skin care products that fits your overall goals of skin care, and be sure that the brand you select can do all of it, without product overkill. This brand should be of the highest quality and you should easily be able to read positive reviews and published clinical studies of its success.

2. Every skin care routine should start with a therapeutic facial cleanser. This cleanser is a daily cleanser that gently exfoliates, soothes, treats and protects. The use of ingredients such as Chamomile extract, olive leaf extract and tangerine oils are essential in the soothing of skin and building of structural proteins that maintain skin tone. In addition, you should use a therapeutic facial cleanser that also protects your skin from the free radicals present in the environment.

3. You must treat your skin with an age defying serum, regardless of your age. These age defying serums will work to eliminate wrinkles, remove sun spots and discoloration as well as reduce the size of your pores. These symptoms are more common with people as they age, but these damages begin very early on in our lives. Be sure to treat your skin appropriately with ingredients like Renovage combined with Matrixyl, these two step treatments make for a great age defying serum. Treatment like this will make you look for your best, no matter what your age is.

4. Be sure to find facial creams, eye gels, or neck creams that utilize the ingredient of stem cells. Stem cells, are from apple cores, or at least the most effective stem cells are, and they significantly increase the rate of skin cell regeneration. Skin cell regeneration slows even more every year that we age and beginning the use of them fairly early on, means younger, healthier skin for years longer than going without such treatment.

5. Be sure to protect and deeply moisturize your skin. Anti oxidants in your facial cleanser may get this done, as will many of the deep moisturizers in the products listed above, but you must be sure to add SPF to your face if it is not included in the products you chose above. This step is very common, but is seldom followed to the extent that it should be, do not make that mistake.

If you are looking for beautiful, healthy skin you need to follow the steps here on the checklist. When you break it down like this, it is simple and easy to follow and the products will not break the bank. Beautiful, youthful skin is a reality for us all, provided we take the steps necessary to accomplish that goal.
