How To Safely Replace Facial Skincare?
Hello, I want to ask. I am looking to replace skincare (facial serum) with another brand. So, are there any tips and ways to safely replace skincare so that you can get a quick adaptation without causing irritation or acne? Thank you
Hello Pamela, thank you for asking.
Facial care products are indeed very many types and brands. The packaging is interesting and the effects it offers are tempting. It's good when you want to switch brands, you do:
Choose products with good quality
Choose products with a neutral pH so as not to upset the skin's pH. Normally skin pH is 4.5-5.5. If the pH of the skin is too high, the skin is easily dry and prone to irritation and infection.
Make sure the product matches your skin type.
Choose the lowest alcohol content possible so that the skin does not dry out.
Check the composition of ingredients, see if there are ingredients that make you allergic or irritated.
Use gradually. Use a small amount of product on a small area on the face, neck, or hands. Notice if any unwanted reactions occur. If yes, then you should not use the product throughout the face.
Use gradually alternating with old products, until the skin adjusts.
If after doing this stage you still experience acne, then there is a possibility that your skin does not match the ingredients in the product. Consult a dermatologist if that happens. Regards.
