There is so many misconceptions when it comes to products and treatments and how to tell if they are working.
The amounts of times I’ve had clients in who say things like,
” oh yes I can feel the sting, its working”
” I didn’t peel so I used more”
” My friend said her skin reacted like this, but mine didn’t do that”
and the list goes on.
So I’m here to remind you of the follow …
- You don’t have to feel it, to know its doing something. Depending on what you use, Yes, tingling or warmth can be expected sometimes and it can sting occasionally but it should NEVER burn. That’s a bad habit we got into thinking and can lead to skin burns. Before starting a new product, always to your research, don’t just listen to your friend or someone on social media. If you trust who you see, for your skin, they should also know what they are doing and be able to explain how it will work.
2. Not everyone will visually respond to treatments the same. It all depends on your skin type. Some people peel easily, some people turn red easily, some people bruise easily and some people heal quickly. Don’t compare yourself to your friends, your skin is not the same as theirs. You’re friend might even give you skincare advice and recommend products that worked for them … seems harmless but always take it with a grain of salt because again, what works for one person may not work for another. its always best to get a professional to analyze your skin and recommend the best products for your skin type.
We all react different and not all ingredients will cause the same reaction.
