What should you do when you're bored and you tried a new trend on Pinterest IG Youtube etc…and now your skin is now a mess?

WATCH OUT for viral videos and blogs claiming to have discovered the new skin care routine or ingredient that is so amazing. Hate to tell you this but, most times they are not an expert, they have no chemistry background and do not know fully how the skin works. PLEASE Do your research and check the source.

Not everyone's skin reacts or is the same. What might be good for one person will make a nightmare for another. Make sure you’re not unknowingly putting a major pore-clogger on your skin, I’m talking to you….coconut oil!

….BUT IT SAYS IT’S "non-comedogenic" "non-acnegenic" "oil-free" "dermatologist tested" or "dermatologist approved".

Comedogenic defined as: Tending to produce or aggravate acne.

This does NOT mean the product is free of comedogenic ingredients. These terms are not regulated. You will find many "non-comedogenic" products that contain the worst offenders!

Some products are more comedogenic depending on the other ingredients it’s paired with on the ingredient deck.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate are contained in many mainstream cleansers and shampoos they are some of the worst for acne.

When in doubt, check it out. We are pros when it comes to ingredients and we can help you get your skin back on track and glowing in no time.
