Once a new skincare product comes out and has lots of benefits, you’ll definitely want to try it. But at the same time, you don’t want a product that would harm your skin or waste your money.
So what can you do ?????
We give you four tips on how to properly introduce a product into your routine, and how to figure out if it’s right for you.
1. Try a patch test first: A patch test can tell you whether or not you are allergic to a product before you try it on your face. Trying out a product behind your ear or inside your elbow can show you how your skin will react to a product. If the product burns or becomes itchy or flaky after 24 hours, then that product may not be suitable for you.
2. Be consistent with the product: Once you pass the patch test and you begin using your new product in your routine, you have to make sure you use your product for at least a full month first, without skipping any days. This is because it takes a full month for the top layer of the skin to turn over. So, make sure you use the product once or twice a day depending on the instructions for at least a full month before judging if it’s right for you.
3. Pay attention to how the product makes your skin feel: It’s very important to pay attention to how the new product makes your skin feel over time. If your skin becomes dry, flakey, or red, and worsens after three weeks or less, then you should immediately discontinue use.
4. Try one product at a time: It’s important to gradually introduce new products to your routine and not use everything on your skin at once. If you put too many products on your skin at once, you could cause breakouts without knowing which products were working for your skin and which weren’t.
With these four tips, you can safely introduce new products into your routine without any consequences. You’re welcome ????.
