With so many beauty and skin care available online how do you choose what’s best suited for you?

In this day and age, there are no boundaries to the extent we can educate ourselves about any specific topic on the internet. Skincare and Makeup is a vast field which can be overwhelming if you try to grasp every aspect of it. Skin is the largest organ in our body— it responds and changes to external stimulae every day.

Type right

With just a few specific keywords on Google, you’ll be amazed at how accurately it directs you to informative articles that can broaden your knowledge of the subject. Of course, the internet is an open source, there will be answers that contradict each other but it’s important to note that makeup and skincare is specific to each individual.

There are useful articles online that can help you identify under which category your skin falls which will then guide you to following the right skincare regime. It’s useful to research key crucial terms on the internet like “sebum” “collagen” “parabens” and other terms and ingredients which will help you determine the right products for your skin. A visit to the dermatologist will give you a more informed judgment, customised to your skin care needs.

From the makeup maven, to the curious teenage girl, choosing the right cosmetics and using the right techniques of makeup is a constant learning process. With thousands of makeup videos available on Youtube, it’s possible to be your own Makeup Artist!

Makeup “gurus” take you through a step-by-step process on how to achieve different looks with a few easy strokes. While they do recommend makeup products in the videos, be sure to keep your skin tone in mind so that you don’t blindly end up buying a shade that matches someone else’s skin tone!

Before purchasing a product, it helps to know what others think of it by going through their feedback. Beauty Bloggers post their take on the product by giving details like product reviews, swatches, texture, smell, packaging, price, efficiency, pros, cons etc. that can be easily accessed to get a better idea of the product.

Take the challenge

Choosing the right products can be a challenge but with a few key factors like skin type, skin tone, age, weather/season, you will eventually find products that work best for you. Trying, testing and experimenting is the way forward because what works for you, may not work for somebody else and vice versa.
