The article includes Dr. Patel‘s expert commentary on the overuse of skincare products and recommendations on proper use.
With the beauty and skin-care market constantly evolving, it may be very tempting to try every new product that hits the shelves. From face masks to moisturizers, there’s not a day, week, or month that doesn’t go by where a new product isn’t marketed for all skin types. But just because there are so many products to choose from – each with their own benefits and promised results – does that mean you should try as many as you’d like?
You should also be considering what order you’re applying your products
Though it may not seem as if that really matters, since you apply your products two (and sometimes three) times a day, ensuring that they’re done in the correct manner can save you a lot of time, money, and frustration. Dr. Purvisha Patel – board-certified dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare . – said that the correct order to apply your product on your skin should be from thinnest to thickest consistency going from serums, to oils and moisturizers and finishing off with an SPF > 30 during the daytime.
