Skincare Product Mistakes

I know we have a limited amount of time, knowledge or understanding on what skincare product that is best for us.  With my 20 years of esthetic experience, I want to share the common mistakes to avoid.  

Try to avoid these common skin care mistakes:

  • Don’t buy products based on celebrity endorsements only.  We don’t know what they used prior, how long they have been using the endorsed product, or how they are getting compensated.
  • Don’t buy products based on consumer satisfaction results only.  A valid test has a study group of at least 50 and results from at least 8 weeks.  
  • Don’t buy products just to receive a free gift.  
  • Avoid products that contain:
    • Acrylates
    • BHT
    • Carbomer
    • DEA
    • EDTA
    • GMO ingredients
    • Mineral oils
    • Nano ingredients
    • Octinoxate
    • oxybenzone
    • Parabens
    • Phthalates
    • Silicones
    • Synthetic fragrances
