As a beauty expert I get asked lots of questions. But the one that I hear the most is on skin care.
It goes like this…“Should I use an entire brand of a skin-care line,or can I mix and match products and brands?”
Skin-care collection prevent errors as there are created like a set with step by step products and systems.
Using a Clarisonic sonic cleanser,an anti-bacterial soap,a Retin-A cream from your plastic surgeon or dermatologist and an over the counter honey almond scrub may irritate the skin and dry out the skin even more.
Another scenario I see and hear a lot of is…overdoing it!
If you use say a cleanser from one brand with salicylic acid, a toner with glycolic acid and a retinoid face cream and a Clarisonic unit,you run the risk of overdoing and irritating the skin causing unsightly peeling and redness.
This is a over exfoliation cocktail that can backfire on your complexion.
You simply have to make sure the products are compatible and that they work for you and your skin type!
Seek an esthetician who is a skin care professional or you can ask your dermatologist on your next visit. Tell them your morning and evening skin care regime and the products you use and see if the products work well when combined. If you notice irritation and redness or your face just plain hurts and rough to the touch …stop and listen to it and give your skin a break. Lastly,if some skin care products are not working for you try another brand.
The bottom line is a lot of teens and women are using way too many products on their face and the wrong mix. Treat your skin with TLC. Tender Loving Care.
Please don’t …keep buying more products and piling them on.
Your skin can only take so much!
