You're a Beauty Product Hoarder

That means: You keep buying products, but are afraid to start using them.

One skin care product doesn't fit all, says Dr. Brooke Jackson, medical director and founder of the Skin Wellness Center of Chicago. "Just because a skin care product works well for your sister, it may not work for you." In other words, stop buying products without a clear idea of what you need. "It's important to get your skin type properly diagnosed from a certified dermatologist; this can really save consumers money in the long run."

Product pick: Once you figure out your skin type, start with a sampler pack like this About Face Combination Skin Kit from Lather ($29 at Lather) -- also available for dry and oily -- that can get you in the routing of cleansing, moisturizing and using sunscreen every day.
