1. Get to know your skin
Before determining the skincare product that you want to buy, it’s really important to know the ins and outs of your skin. It’s with you all the time, it shouldn’t be that hard, right. But, not just to know the type of skin, whether oily, dry, normal or just a combination, yes. Also, need to know what skin problems. Is it, dehydration, zits, uneven skin-tones, or what. And what the skin goals are like.
Also, there is one more thing that is often forgotten but becomes important before buying a skincare product. It’s whether or not you have allergic reactions to certain ingredients that are in skincare that you will buy. And it brings us to the second thing you have to do before buying skincare products.
2. Read the ingredients list
If you have an allergy to certain chemicals, read the ingredients used in very important skincare products! You do not want your face to be “broken” because of the misuse of skin care products, allergies may be a pretty extreme example and not everyone has allergies. But that does not mean you can skip the ingredient list in skincare products. Maybe you are not allergic, but there may be ingredients that don’t suit your skin type or can even worsen your skin problems. That’s the importance of understanding what your skin looks like, so you can choose products whose ingredients are according to your needs.
It was rather overwhelming at first because the ingredient list used chemical terms that not everyone was familiar with, including me. The solution can be by using the CosDNA website. This website is very helpful to see the contents of the product to be purchased along with a brief analysis.
3. Consult with a dermatologist
To determine the type of skin, problems, and allergies, it would be better to get a professional opinion to be more confident. This is also related to one of the questions that I often get. “If you use a medicine, can a doctor use skincare or not?” Questions like these are best asked the doctor directly, right? Because right, the doctor who prescribed medicine and must have been based on the state of your skin that I don’t know. The one who knows the ingredients in the doctor’s medicine is also the doctor himself, so the doctor is more capable of determining whether you can or not use other skincare with certain ingredients. Don’t forget that some skincare ingredients cannot be used together. But more on that later.
4. Read product reviews
Finally, if you are familiar with the new skin condition, you will read and read reviews of products that are suitable and you want to try. This is the easiest thing to do. Now scattered on the internet reviews from various beauty bloggers. Not fluent in English? There have been a lot of reviews from Indonesian beauty bloggers. Or you can read people’s reviews on FemaleDaily too. And easily accessible anywhere if you have a smartphone and internet connection.

See if the reviewer has the same skin condition as you. Because of the results of a product, it depends on the skin type of the wearer. And even though the skin condition is the same, again, you can’t immediately make it the only reference, but as a reference for you. Because of how similar the condition of your skin is to others, surely there are still things that can make the results different.
