Facial care is important because it is the key to reducing and avoiding acne. Caring for the skin allows individuals to feed it the nutrients that it needs. This can help them to control problems such as premature aging and dry skin. A person's complexion can drastically affect his or her appearance, and caring for one's face helps maintain an even skin tone.

One of the primary reasons why facial care is important is because it promotes good cleansing habits. Cleansing is essential to a healthy appearance, especially for people who have problems with acne or who want to avoid these problems. If an individual does not take the time to clean his or her face properly, oil and toxins can build up and block his or her pores, causing a breakout of acne. The residue and grime to which an individual is exposed throughout the day can lead to dull, unattractive skin.

Products that are used during facial care often have ingredients that the skin needs to maintain its glow and suppleness. These might include items such as vitamins and antioxidants, which can make the skin resilient and promote healing to damaged areas. Many of the products available are also designed to help slow the aging process by helping make the skin firmer and smoother.

Facial care allows a person to normalize the extremes that might be created by his or her skin type. For example, people who have oily skin can help manage it by using products such as oil-free mattifying moisturizers, which provide them with moisture while helping to eliminate the appearance of greasiness. People who have dry skin can use products such as creamy moisturizers and masks to help infuse their skin with moisture.

Men are often more negligent about facial care than women. It is important for them to prioritize the maintenance of their skin, especially when it comes to moisturizing and exfoliating it. In many cases, when men shave, the products that they use to eliminate the hair dries out their skin. Furthermore, men of certain ethnicities are prone to hair bumps from shaving. These can often be reduced or eliminated if men take care of their skin regularly.

A person's complexion can be an asset or a hindrance. For example, having a lot of spots from breakouts or other types of hyperpigmentation might result in a person being denied certain professional opportunities. Good facial care habits can help an individual avoid and prevent these problems. There are a wide range of products that are designed to help speed up the exfoliation process, meaning that dead, damaged layers are removed at a faster pace than they otherwise would be. Many products are also designed to help fade discoloration, which also promotes an even skin tone.

@pleonasm - I'm not sure there is any effect on Earth that would get me to pay that much for skin care products. I have a routine that works and I just don't think that hard about it.

I've kind of got a "if it's not broken, you don't have to fix it" mentality with this sort of thing. I know it's big business to try and convince women that they have problems only a particular lotion can solve, but I just learn to tune them out.

@MrsPramm - I think there is a difference between using cheaper products that don't do very much (or may even make your skin worse) and using high-end products that do something specific. I don't get to use high-end products very often, but I definitely feel the difference when I do.

There is a $150 moisturizer that is legendary among my friends because it basically makes your skin feel like velvet within a few seconds of using it. But we can't really afford to buy it, so we only ever get to use it when free samples are available.

Just be aware that most skin products are completely unnecessary. Often they strip the natural oils from your face and then replace them and make you pay for the privilege, when you could just wash your face with plain water and get basically the same end result.

Some of them do work and can help to clear up problems, but don't take for granted that you have to have a particular range of products. Try going without them for a couple of weeks and see what happens, then decide whether it's worth continuing to use them.
