Are you putting too many or much skincare product on your face?
The key to getting the most out of your products is to use the right amount. If you use too little, you won’t get the effects you want, and if you use too much, you’ll be wasting the product. And considering that some products can be a little pricey due to their medical-grade ingredients, your skincare regimen could be costing you more than it should. On top of that, using too much can actually make your skin worse. Over-treatment can irritate your skin, leading to inflammation and even the breakdown of collagen and elastin — exactly what you DON’T want to happen! The same goes for in-office treatments. Being overzealous is just as bad, or even worse, than not doing anything for your skin at all.
