Our skin type helps us to determine the apt facial creams, which one should use. With such a large variety of products available in the market, one is able to find an apt supplement as per the needs.

If you walk into any pharmacy, one could see an overwhelming array of products especially anti aging supplements on the shelves. Everyone would swear that it is very effective, and it becomes very difficult for the customers to choose. Well nobody would want to spend thousands of dollars just to try out each and every product splattered on the shelf, nevertheless how can one know which will suit the best so that you can give it a shot?

Here are a few things to consider that can narrow the list while searching for age defying skin care.

Type of skin

Skin type does affect the kind of products, and the ingredients, that one wants to use. People with Oily skin might find problems with thick cream as it may end up clogging the pores and may worsen your problems, considering a gel-based cream or light serum is preferable.

Conversely, if you have a dry skin, thicker or a rich creamy product is advisable. The drier the skin, the more prone the skin is to wrinkles, so hunt for a product that can deeply moisturize your skin and leave it smooth and soft.

People with sensitive skin mostly find that products irritate their facial skin, and they should avoid products that contain fragranced chemicals.

Specific problems that needs to be addressed

Different wrinkles are tackled with different kinds of creams. Wrinkles could be in the form of crow’s feet, lines around mouth, laughter lines, etc. A common facial cream is not the option if you really want to get rid of lines around your eyes. The skin around the eyes is more delicate that needs to be tackled in a different way.

Age does decide the kind of product you buy for yourself. For example if you are in your early twenties or late thirties, then moisturizers with sunscreen might be a good option.


Mostly all products contain alike ingredients, few may surely stand out. Keep away from products that include parabens, alcohol, petrolatum and perfume as all these could irritate and dry the skin. Instead look for products containing natural ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, Green Tea and Coenzyme Q10.

The most expensive product may or may not be the best. At times a cheap product could also work wonders for your skin. You need to check the label then select the product that is worth the investment.
