Your dresser is littered with various skin care products that you have purchased over the years but are no longer using — a visual reminder that choosing products for your skin can often be frustrating.

Why did these products fall short on their promised results? It does not necessarily mean that these were ineffective. One possible reason why a product did not produce the result you are after is that you did not know what results you can reasonably expect from it. Perhaps, you chose the wrong product for your skin type. Or maybe you simply did not give the product enough time to work. Simply put, there are plenty of variables that you should consider.

There is a variety of ways to ensure that you get the best results from the products that you use on your skin.

First, be aware that there is no magic ingredient that can produce the best results and solve all your skin care woes. In fact, the human body, including your facial skin, requires a wide variety of nutrients in order to achieve optimal health. Focusing on just one ingredient will mean that you are depriving your skin of the other nutrients it needs.

Following a consistent skin care routine is essential for best results. Read the product literature and closely follow the instructions for recommended use. If you are using a few skin care products, such as the Advance Ultra Lift Vitamin C Serum from Kleem Organics, it is highly recommended that you learn how to use these in the right order for optimal results. For example, you need to apply a sunscreen before you apply your makeup.

Learn to set reasonable expectations. Many of your skin care woes come as a result of years of neglect and exposure to harmful elements. And although there are some products that can produce results overnight, most products require a set amount of time before these can produce their promised results.

If a product irritates your skin, stop using it. Otherwise, you risk the breakdown of collagen and facilitate the increase in oil production and wrinkles. If you are trying a product for the first time, watch out for signs of irritation like redness and burning.

Checking out reviews can help you make better purchasing decisions. Do not rely entirely on the claims of the manufacturer. The experience of other consumers can help you set reasonable expectations for the product as well as help you avoid potential side effects due to the ingredients or improper use.
