Problems With Online Skin Care Trends and Routines, Part 2
In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the risks associated with cookie-cutter online skin care routines. While developing a skin care routine is vital for many, including those who have recently had a medical spa procedure like Botox or a laser treatment, doing so based on themes you found on the internet – and without professional or individual assistance – presents some serious potential risks.
At the offices of Steven Jepson MD, we’re here to help you avoid these risks. Not only do we offer high-quality med spa services like Botox, Juvederm and various laser treatments, we also provide several anti-aging skin care products directly recommended by our team to benefit you. These are highly beneficial to many patients, both as standalone products and to assist with some of our other solutions. We also help steer patients away from potentially harmful areas of their routine they may have been led to improperly online – part two of today’s series will evaluate a few more such themes to stay away from, plus go over why working with pros is so valuable here.
Sheet Mask Risks
If you’ve been involved in the beauty realm for some time, chances are you’ve at least heard of various facial sheet masks. These masks are meant to go on the face and bring a few different potential benefits, whether it’s collagen, a hydration burst or some combination therein.
In some situations, including if recommended by your skin care specialist, these masks may be a viable product. However, they are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, and this means they can contain non-approved ingredients that may not be ideal for your skin. You should never use one of these products without specific consultation with a skin care professional.
Combining Products Willy-Nilly
Another major trend some find online: Combining skin care products in unique ways to find the ideal skin care routine. Again, while this theme itself is not necessarily a bad one, doing it without proper guidance can lead you wrong.
For some people, combining certain formulas or skin care lines will lead to negative chemical reactions. These can irritate the skin and cause more issues than you had to begin with.
Why Professional Assistance is So Valuable
We keep coming back to this theme because it’s absolutely vital within the skin care real, especially for those who have had skin issues or concerns in the past. Skin care professionals maintain a knowledge base that’s enormously beneficial for clients in an area that’s very personalized – cookie-cutter approaches don’t work for most people. Our staff will work with you to determine your specific skin care needs and the kinds of products that will work best for them, helping you avoid taking steps that will only set you back.
