Would you treat a broken bone with cough medicine? Or cut the lawn using a vacuum? No, probably not, because these tools are designed for a specific purpose (and it’s not that!). The same is true for your face. Many products are designed for certain problems and specific areas, and work best when used the way they were intended! Before you slather on the first anti-wrinkle cream you see to prevent signs of aging, consider the following questions to make sure you’re using the right tool for the job.
• What am I trying to do? Perhaps you’re working on diminishing those crows feet, maybe you want to get rid of dark spots or are trying to firm up saggy skin. While many anti-aging creams are formulated to do all of these things, it may also help to have an additional product to target your specific problem area.
• Where is my issue? Even if your issue is general, like wrinkles, you may still want to get specific about where it is. For instance, crows feet around the eyes may need different treatment than creases in the forehead, since the skin around the eyes is more sensitive than that on your forehead. A product like Deep Wrinkle Concentrate may be perfect for those forehead creases, but one like Hydroxtone’s 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer would be best for wrinkles around the eyes.
