The title of this article caught my eye. Written by Well + Good contributor Zoe Weiner, this article raises the questions of skin care routines.
Zoe asks Austin Dermatologist Ted Lain, “…whether the skin-care routine you’ve invested time and money in is really worth it.”
According to Dr. Lain, “Usually it’s either because a person’s using the wrong products for their skin type, or they’re using the right products and they’re using too much and it’s causing dermatitis,”
He further explains that the products you’re using should enhance your skin. However, if you find the products are causing breakouts or you aren’t seeing any results, it’s best to take some time off your regimented skin care routine. And instead, opt for mild products.
After you should reevaluate, and see what went wrong. Are you using the products incorrectly? Or is the product just not compatible with your skin type?
One thing he wants to make clear is that you should completely ditch your skincare routine. In summary, he mentions protecting your skin with products (being they’re the right ones) can help rejuvenate your skin. As well as help prevent skin cancer and decrease overall outside damage.
