I often get asked by clients the following questions:
"Can I use my friend's skincare?"
"Can my boyfriend or partner use my face cleanser?"
"Can my teenage daughter or son use my skincare?"
The answer, plain and simple, is NO. Not only they will not benefit from skincare that isn't tailored for their skin, but they could also end up harming their skin with incorrect product usage.
For example, a rich moisturiser that works well with Normal skins, might end up clogging the pores of an Oily or congested skin type.
A Dry Skin type using an Oily skin type's moisturiser, on the other hand, might end up facing the adverse concerns of dehydration, a moisture impaired barrier, or even sensitivity.
Our skin type (Normal, Combination, Dry or Oily) is unique - like our DNA. Therefore, it needs products tailored specifically to it in order to improve its health.
