There is no question that beautiful skin is more effective than make-up or anything else you can do or apply to make people think, "She's beautiful." Women spend billions of dollars every year on facial beauty products, all with the hopes of looking younger, prettier, radiant, and just generally the way they want to look when they see themselves in the mirror. Cosmetic companies will do a lot to mislead you into spending your money on their products. Sometimes their thinking is simply "The customer will assume this product works wonders if we charge a lot for it." Other times, they will use key words and phrases in such a way that you end up thinking their product will cure wrinkles, when really it will just mildly diminish their appearance, and only temporarily.

Types of Facial Beauty Products

There are two basic types of facial beauty products: those which treat your skin from the outside, and those which work from the inside. Some products must be used religiously in order to be truly effective. Others can be used only sporadically or even just once to have a more dramatic effect. More isn't always better, but it is generally true that you will have to put more money and time (rather than less) into your facial care regimen if you really want to protect and improve your skin.

The one exception to this rule is if you have been irritating your skin or using the wrong products and then buying more products to try to combat the damage done by the bad products. For example, people with acne often use bar soaps which are supposed to help clear up their skin. The only problem is that the very same quality of the soap which makes it form a bar means that it can easily get into your pores and turn solid again, thus making blackheads and blemishes much worse. It is surprisingly common to find people who are using more products than necessary because some of their products are causing problems which could be easily avoided.

Never hesitate to ask a doctor about any facial beauty products you're tempted to try. Your own doctor or a doctor on the Internet is likely to give you an unbiased response and save you hundreds of dollars. At the very least, he or she will help you clarify your expectations.
