Skin Care Tip πŸ’š 

A product that is labeled for all skin types in most cases is a mass market product. What does this mean? 🀷‍♀️

A mass market product has to be more or less appropriate for a large group of people without having an adverse effect on the skin πŸ’‘

Naturally people have different skin types and skin concerns, so to try to make a product that fits a large mold ◻️ it has to be a simple formula.

In order to do this, the product needs to be super conservative in the formula πŸ‘©‍πŸ”¬ and the ingredients that are used.

For starters, ingredients geared ⚙️ to treat oily skin are different from those intended to treat dry skin, and realistically, often can arouse a negative reaction from the skin if not used properly. It is sort of a hit or miss 🎯 kind of skin care approach, with a potential of only the mildest of skin benefits which usually sums up to lubricating the skin to prevent dryness or drying up the surface of the skin to prevent oiliness ❗️

I would call this a super passive and often an ineffective approach to treating the skin πŸ€”

In most cases, the active ingredients in mass market products are added at the absolute minimal concentrations and are simply for label purposes 🏷

The reason is because when you start to add  effective concentrations of active ingredients πŸ’¦ to a product, it starts to limit the spectrum of clients who can use that product, hence, no longer being appropriate for the masses. πŸ™ˆ

To maximize the results of a home care skin regimen it is always best to use professional caliber skin care products and ideally those recommended by your aestheticianπŸ’†‍♀️

What is your favorite type of skin care product (ex: scrub, serum, eye cream...) and why❓
