Whatever home spa products you choose to use on your skin, be sure to use a single integrated system. They will work the most effectively on the skin. The collection you decide to use should also be pH-balanced. Know that systems are created to work together so that each step works on the one before. You will not achieve the best results if you mix and match a toner from one company and a cleanser from another. Have a go at another system, if some part of the system does not work for you.

Petroleum products, such as petroleum jelly, mineral oil, baby oil, and preservatives that are commonly found in store-bought creams, some skin care products, and lotions are foreign to our skin cells and often clog the pores. They also can become vehicles for unwelcome substances such as bacteria and dirt. When our skin has to deal with abuse everyday it can create an allergic reaction by ultimately weakening and breaking down the durability and strength of the skin. This is very evident with the rise in skin dermatitis, allergies, psoriasis, eczema, skin cancer, and dry skin.

Steps in Using Home Spa Products

Determining your skin type is the first step in choosing home spa products. Check how your skin feels at noontime, it is the easiest way to find out your type of skin. Does it feel Tight and itchy? If it does, you have dry skin. Is it oily? You have oily skin. You have normal skin if it feels the same as it does in the morning. Normal skin is rare. Most people have combination skin, which means they by and large have even pores with a bit of excess oiliness down the nose and chin and across the forehead. If you do have dry skin or oily, don't fret. This just means that you'll have to be a little more aware, and use a few health and beauty products.

There are four basic home skin care steps that should be performed twice a day: cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturizing. The best cleansers are either gel or creamy, not soap. Soap tends to strip your skin of all natural oils and moisture. After cleansing, toning restores the acidic pH balance of the skin. Regular use of exfoliators will slough off dead skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, minimize pore size and even out the skin tone. The final step is to moisturize. Those with oily skin, can still be water-deficient, therefore a water-based moisturizer works for all skin types.
