You have your beloved products lined up on your vanity, but as time goes by, they just don’t seem to be producing the phenomenal results you require. What’s up with that? Is it possible that you have actually become immune to your arsenal of beauty?
While it may seem like your skin has become immune to your favorite products, it hasn’t! However, it can adapt to and eventually acclimate itself to some of the more irritating ingredients, such as glycolic acid and retinol. That’s why your esthetician generally begins treatments with these products in low doses and then slowly increases the potency to avoid irritation.
Furthermore, your skin’s needs may change due to age or environmental factors. Relocating to another area with drastic weather changes from what you are used to can affect your skin. In addition, aging skin is constantly changing. The products you used in your 20s will not address the needs of your 40-something skin. This is the time to consult with your esthetician for a homecare makeover.
And that’s not all. We all love to try new things…especially when we turn on the television or log in to social media sites that overwhelm us with shiny, new products! Don’t get caught up in the hype. You’ve heard the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If your current products are effective, continue to use them.
So chances are that you may not need to give up your favorite products. You don’t need to rotate your skin care regimen for fear of becoming immune. But if you’re not seeing the results you want, it’s always best to consult with your esthetician to determine the cause before throwing out your favorite products. You may simply need a minor adjustment.
