Question: What is the best product for ______?


Everyone wants to know what the best product is to treat whatever skin problem they have. To be honest, I have no idea what the best product is. But, I really wish I knew.

This question gets asked so much but there is never a right answer because everyone’s skin is different. What works for your best friend may not work for you. What works for your mom may not work for your sister. Everyone's skin responds differently to different things.

The only thing you can do to figure out what the best product is for whatever skin condition you want to treat is to go through a trial-and-error process. Trial-and-error with products will tell you what the best moisturizer is for acne and what the best sunscreen is for dry skin, etc. I went through that process to treat my acne and you can read about my experience here.

Following the Four Golden Rules can make the search for a holy grail product much easier. Also, consult product recommendations and online reviews for more information about a certain product.

I wish I could give you a better answer, but skin is such an individual thing that there really is no best product out there that works for everyone.
