Skin care does not just necessarily refer to aging of the skin, products can also be used to combat over exposure of the sun (solar exposure), skin diseases and even common blemishes.
With the media's prime focus on healthy and younger looking skin, customers are demanding better research into skin care products, which in turn lead to having more effective results for all types of problems and skin types. Different types of skin can include dark, pale, blotchy, irritable and sensitive for example. There is also a large requirement for skin care products to be more natural remedies, reducing chemicals and toxins and replacing them with plant extract and herbs. Examples of these include Aloe Vera, coconut and sea salt to name but a few.
One of the main ambassadors in the research and development of these types of skin care products is Howard Murad MD. Creating the Murad Company he promotes natural, beneficial, pharmaceutical solutions to the above mentioned and other skin related problems. These skin care products include both internal and external remedies and are available to suit all skin types. There is a wide range of products available to suit the wide variation of individual needs of a customer, depending on their individual beauty regime.
A customer's regime can vary from monthly to weekly to daily or in most cases twice daily and can also depending greatly on cost. Each Murad product can cost between $14 (£8-9) and $100 (£55-60) for customers living in the USA. For those customers living outside the USA it is important to remember to include postage and packaging in the total cost. The cost varies mainly due to the fact that the products are only available on line.
The products that are available include cleansers (wipe away the dirt and oil that collects on the skin), toners, moisturisers (to lubricate the skin to avoid dryness, cracking or irritability), scrubbers (to remove excess, dead skin cells), serums, treatments, eyecare (to reduce bags, grey areas and inflammation), bodycare, value kits, masks (specifically targeted at the face to remove dead cells, oil, dirt and blackheads), sun products and supplements (to enhance the skins natural chemical make-up).
As with all skin care products it is best to seek advice if unsure of the use, effects or skin type required.
