What Should I Look For in Skincare Products?

Tracey Beesley's fascination with skincare was born originally from her own sun-worshipping skin woes.

If you could wave a magic wand and turn back time, what would you do? 

I would definitely, without a doubt, have never, gone on a sunbed, or indeed been any kind of sun worshipper.

It's easy to say that but for me, it's serious. I mean who wants to spend the rest of their 30s and 40s fighting the ravages of sun damage over and above the cost of doing so..well, it's time-consuming as well!

Luckily there are procedures out there and some of them actually work and that includes skincare.

For me, one of the things I saw a great result with was botulinum toxins and fillers not to be confused with the over-use of them! Most people prefer the more subtle look and the question of "has she, hasn't she" is much better than the "I know what she's had done"!

That's where a good skincare regime comes in.

Look for skincare with clinical trials that show the products actually enter the skin, skincare that sits on top (apart from sunscreens) do very little and there are a variety of ingredients out there that claim to do something.
