Getting a whole load of new skincare products can be exciting right?! However, as hard as it may be, it’s important that you try and only introduce a new product to your skin one at a time for a few reasons;
Your skin is already used to your standard skincare routine right? It knows how to react to the products you already use, introducing a completely new product can throw all this off balance, a literal WTF?! moment with your skin will most likely cause you to break out, out of pure shock.
Your skin needs time to learn how to react to new stuff, one bit at a time.
You must allow at least 30 days for your skin to purge when introducing a new product to the skin, don’t expect a new product to work overnight, if your skin breaks out, don’t worry and throw away your product straight away, give your skin this amount of time to react to the product. If you are still having breakouts after this time period, it may just be that, that product, is just not suitable for your skin.
If you introduce more than one product at the same time, you won’t be able to tell how your skin is reacting to each product, what’s working and what’s not, be patient with your skin.
If you find after 30 days that a product is working for your skin and you’re getting out of it what you need, make note of the ingredients, you’ll be able to tell for future purchases what ingredients your skin likes, and the same for what it doesn’t, if you know after 30 days that a product is still causing you to breakout and your skin is not reacting well, look at the ingredients, and you’ll know for future purchases what to steer clear from.
Learn from your skin, and learn from the ingredients you’re putting on it, don’t just buy a product because you’ve seen a great advert for it, everybody’s skin is different and special to that person, learn the ingredients that your skin needs and tailor your products to what works for you!
