Using The Wrong Products For My Skin Type - What Happens?

Uh oh! Here are a few symptoms you might experience..


You don't see any particular improvements in your skin after using it for more than 2 weeks. Sometimes skincare that work for others may not work for you!


Your skin reacts by turning red, bumpy and itchy, sometimes accompanied by a burning or tingling sensation. This is a sign that you might be allergic or sensitive to the ingredients inside.


You'll usually see minor fleshy bumps 1-2 days after using a new product. But if your skin starts to breakout (visible acne/blemishes), it's time to stop using those products. Even common ingredients like coconut oil can cause breakouts if you have oily or sensitive skin!


Yes, retinol and certain acids has its benefits but there are also side effects if not used carefully. Especially for those with sensitive skin. Some products are meant to be used only once or twice a week. If used daily, it can your skin barrier to become thinner resulting in more sensitised skin.


Do you get frustrated when you buy a new skincare only to find out it doesn't work?
