With the market for skincare products continuing to expand, it can be difficult to choose among the dozens of brands on the shelves today. Skincare-News.com's recent project will be a series of reviews that cover the best-rated skincare brands, and what consumers should know before purchasing.
1. SkinCeuticals Review (http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=729)
Our review of the SkinCeuticals line finds that this brand has created several unique product lines to prevent, protect and correct skin damage and other skin concerns. For preventing skin damage later in life, the SkinCeuticals line offers individuals their choice of quality skincare products that, when combined, help to create an effective skincare regimen. From broad-spectrum sunscreens to antioxidant serums, these preventative products help to offset premature aging and protect skin from environmental damage. Think it's too late to address age damage caused by years of bad habits? SkinCeuticals offers dozens of products to address the many signs of aging, such as: wrinkles, dryness, age spots, crow's feet and frown lines. For adults frustrated by acne, SkinCeuticals has developed a set of products that work together synergistically. Our review finds that their 4-part kit which works to deep-clean pores and refine congested complexions is not only effective, but gentle as well. And for people whom are confused about which skincare products to use, SkinCeuticals makes it easy with complete skincare systems, pre-packaged into convenient Skin System Bags.
2. StriVectin-SD Review (http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=737)
For women who are tired of topical treatments that fail to deliver, or scared by the prospect of being poked and prodded by needles, it may be time to look into other options. Strivectin-SD was recently reviewed and found to be an effective alternative to Botox. Originally designed to fade stretch marks, Strivectin SD was found to be beneficial for wrinkles, as well, bridging the gap between topical treatment and cosmetic procedure, and is now considered an effective yet non-invasive treatment designed to target the many signs of premature aging. Our review of this product finds that no matter how long wrinkles have been plaguing a person, Strivectin SD can help restore and restructure the skin, minimizing their appearance. According to our review, Strivectin SD, with its blend of elasticizers, hydrators and firming ingredients, actually improves the complexion with time. Plus, it targets the fine lines and wrinkles that Botox can't help, and may help reduce under-eye circles and age spots, as well.
3. Elizabeth Arden Review (http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=735)
Elizabeth Arden understands that skincare is about more than fragrant lotions in pretty packaging and has created a line of products that actually work with a person's own skin to improve how it functions, which in turn improves how the skin looks. Our review finds that these products address the source of aging concerns with active ingredients, combining advanced technology with botanical extracts to soothe, balance and improve the look and feel of the skin. Pause and Effect products address anti-aging concerns before wrinkles and fine lines have a chance to form, essentially stopping the clock on the aging process. The Elizabeth Arden products actually work to improve the skin's barrier function and prevent moisture loss -- some of them lasting eight or even 24 hours. Products are dermatologist tested, and many of them are fragrance-free and ideal for sensitive skin.
4. Dr. Brandt Review (http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=733)
Dr. Brandt skincare represents the fusion of science with active botanicals: state-of-the-art delivery systems enhanced with the power of naturally healing vitamins and botanicals. Hyperpigmentation, under-eye circles, and dull skin can all be improved with the specialized products in this clinically-based line. For those concerned with aging skin, Dr. Brandt offers antioxidant-rich products to repair environmental damage and restore skin's radiance. Dr. Brandt also offers unique products designed for people with oily skin, blemishes and uneven skin tone, helping to balance and clarify for a more even skin tone. According to our review, Dr. Brandt products are an excellent choice both for those looking to build a basic skincare regimen, or those with a specific skincare issue they would like to target.
5. Cellex-C Review (http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=731)
Cellex-C was the first line of topical Vitamin C introduced to the market. Exclusive to Cellex-C is the Patented Complex, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 84.2 percent, with improved color, tone and texture. Vitamin C is the heart of the Cellex-C formulation, offering powerful antioxidant benefits and continued protection. According to our review, Cellex-C products are an excellent choice for individuals worried about skincare concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots, and these sophisticated products offer solutions for all skin types, including sensitive. With Cellex-C, the appearance of aging skin is firmer, smoother and more resilient.

Mineral Oil: Friend or Foe? (http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=722)
Although mineral oil is generally considered safe for cosmetic use, in recent years there has been a backlash against using mineral oil and many cosmetic companies (as well as doctors and industry experts) are beginning to question the safety of this ubiquitous product. Mineral oil critics maintain that the oil is a known comedogenic which clogs the pores, is foreign to the human body and especially harmful when used on young children or infants. Proponents feel differently, suggesting that a highly-refined mineral oil might actually be good for the skin, and not comedogenic.. Who is right? Read on to learn what each side has to say.
Atypical Acne: Chest and Arms (http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=712)
Although acne is most often associated with the face, it's not uncommon for breakouts to occur on other parts of the body, and the chest and arms are prime targets. As with the face, acne shows up on the body for many of the same reasons: excess oil production and sluggish exfoliation of dead skin cells lead to an over-growth of bacteria with painful inflammation. Learn which factors can increase the chances of developing acne on the chest or arms, and how this frustrating condition can be treated.
