Most places on the internet will describe the various products you can acquire to aid with skin maintenance, with various creams and ointments which promise the world, and only partially deliver. Are they really worth the money? Again, the answer isn’t so simple: There has been various studies conducted on these products, particularly the more popular ones, to determine the validity of their marketing promises. Many of these studies indicate that they often fall short of the promises they make, but that the overall effects are still positive.

Ultimately, it may well be worth the cost of buying these products, but if you don’t have a lot of money, there are things you can do which will have a significant impact, without the massive cost associated. Firstly, you can change your diet. Most studies indicate that this plays the largest role in the health of your skin, so if you want to remain healthy, try to avoid lots of fatty foods, as this can clog your system up. Secondly, you need to get enough sunlight exposure; but make sure it’s not too much. Sunlight, or vitamin D, plays a massive role in the health of your skin, with the right amount revitalising your skin and your body as a whole, and too little leaving your body and skin drawn out, and too much damaging your skin cells. Thirdly, and lastly, you need to try to keep your body weight at the optimum level for you, without too much variation. Any variation will cause you skin to stretch, which will stress the skin beyond what is ideal.

Many of the factors outlined here will have a far more significant impact on your skins health than any positive impacts that skin creams may result in. While skin creams may be worth the costs, they should be used to supplement healthy habits, and only used to keep your skin looking youthful.
