How to add new skincare products to your routine

new skincare products

Healthy and beautiful skin is not always a gift of God. Even if you have God-gifted skin with a beautiful glow, you need to take care of your skin regularly. As a result, you need to follow a skin routine regularly. 

In most cases, skincare products do not need any prescription from your doctor. You can avail whatever skincare product you want from a store.

Numerous skincare products are available in the market, and each of them promises to take care of different skin issues. So, you may experience difficulties in selecting the most appropriate products for your skin.

The situation will arise when you need to add a new product to your current routine. Again, it is a trouble to sort out the solution.

If you are wondering how to introduce new products into your skincare routine, how often, and how to avoid overstimulation of your skin, this is the right article for you. 

It can be evident and fascinating when you are getting introduced to a new range of skincare products. There are several products out in the market, so; you may be tempted to order a bunch of different products and test them out right away, all at the same time.

But I encourage you to be just a little bit more patient. Do a little bit of research before you start exploring a new range of products. People become very excited after watching advertisements and many reviews on different websites, social media platforms, and television.

Hence, they start purchasing numerous other skincare products. When they received them, they begin applying all of those products at the same time. As a result, they have to pay for that in the end.

Because you do not know what are the side effects of those new products. You do not even know how your kin will react to the ingredients present in those products. Some of them can contain quite harsh, strongly aesthetic products. So, you may get very overstimulated skin.  

What is overstimulation?

Overstimulation happens when you begin with too many skincare products at the same time. Especially if they contain a high percentage of acid. Those products can be vitamin C, retinol, and so on.

The higher the rate and the more likely you are to face over stimulation into your skin. Some of the signs of overstimulation are-

  • Dryness 
  • Flakiness 
  • Breakouts 
  • Redness and 
  • Sensitivity 

You may experience these severe consequences on your skin. Too flaky skin, especially around my mouth, and itching are widespread symptoms. Your skin becomes horrible. The situation can become so severe that you may need to make an appointment with a doctor. 

So, how to introduce new skincare products?

Now while introducing a new skincare product, you need to go slow at first. Let your skin respond to those products. Then decide whichever is suitable for you. We at Dr. Swetha’s Cosmoderm Centre in Indira Nagar Bangalore are providing the best skincare treatment. We advise you

  • To start with the policy of only one product at a time. 
  • Wait for one to two weeks before you going to use another product. If you have normal skin, you should wait up to two weeks. Whereas, if you have sensitive or even acne-prone skin besides this, you will suffer from causing breakouts. 
  • It is always a good idea to have a patch test before using the product. If you’re going to start using new aesthetic products, you should introduce them slowly. It means you should use that specific product once a week for a couple of weeks. Then twice a week for a couple of weeks, and so it goes. 
  • You should avoid using too many ascetic products in one routine. 
  • Do not use two products with a high percentage of acid in the same routine. For example, if you use both PHs and vitamin C, you should use those two on alternative nights. You should have at least one or two days where you do not use highly acidic products. 
  • Do not over-exfoliate; it is all about being gentle with your skin and treat it right. 

If you are not careful, then you will damage your skin. But do not be afraid. If you do quality research beforehand and use the products wisely, you can achieve outstanding results.
