Can Using the Wrong Products Hurt My Skin?

Skin CareChoosing the right skin care products isn’t easy. It’s hard to navigate through the many choices available and select the right ones for your skin. Using the wrong products, however, could hurt your skin rather than helping it, causing everything from breakouts to eczema. 

An individualized approach

Rather than taking a hit-or-miss approach, our skin care clinic can help you find just the right products and treatments. Our staff can help you learn what products and ingredients to avoid and which to use to help keep your skin looking its best. We also offer treatments such as facials and microdermabrasion that we tailor to fit your individual skin care needs.

We’ll help you avoid these common mistakes:

Using the same products year after year

We all grow attached to particular products that we’ve grown accustomed to using. But our skin needs change over time. Products that helped your skin a decade ago may no longer suit your needs.

For example, our skin often gets drier as we get older. Using the same products that we’ve always used could cause our skin to look and feel drier and less supple. Wrinkles will also tend to look worse.

Using products for the wrong skin type

Skin types are often divided into normal, oily, dry, sensitive, and combination.

You may assume that you know what type of skin you have, but that isn’t necessarily true, especially if you have combination skin.

If you’re using the wrong products, you could make your oily skin break out and cause your dry skin to become even more dry and irritated. Sensitive skin can be vulnerable to a variety of ingredients and fragrances that can cause irritation as well as more extensive problems such as rosacea, eczema, or allergic contact dermatitis.

Our skin care clinic has the expertise, training, and education to help keep your skin looking its best. Schedule an appointment, and we’ll create a plan just for you.
