Before you begin to invest your time, energy, and money on skin care products and procedures, you will need to know certain traits and qualities toward successful skin care.  Learning these traits can lead to a better assessment of your skin care goals and save you valuable time and money.

1.  Having reasonable expectations.  If you are in your late forties, you should not expect to look like someone who is in her twenties.  With proper skin and overall health maintenance, a sensible expectation for a woman who is within this age group has likelihood to look ten, or even fifteen years younger. Comparing yourself to actors and actresses in Hollywood or models that you see in magazines is not realistic and can just lead to disappointment and aggravation.

2.  Be motivated.  What are your bases for looking younger and feeling better?  Generally, there is a fundamental reason why people want to enhance their appearance to look and feel younger.  Perhaps it is a new relationship, a new job, or maybe for the reason that you feel younger than you look.  Determining your motive for improvement can help you create a goal that will enable you to make the right choice.

3.  Dedication.  Answering the following questions determine your commitment to achieve the look you want.  These questions will also give you a better understanding on your skin care routine and behavior.

-To what extent will you go to achieve the outcome you want?
-Do you always think about what your skin looks like and how you can improve it?
-How much money are you willing to spend to enhance the way you look?
-Do you prefer to carry on a daily routine that offers a slow and steady improvement or go for something that offers a quick fix?

4.  Patience.  Good things take time.  Understanding that in order to achieve a healthy, radiant skin, it takes every day protection and caring.

5.  Health.  Many people underestimate the benefits of healthy living, healthy eating, and vigorous exercise.  Combining the right foods with the right amount of positive activities in your life not only does wonders for your body – but for your skin as well.
