When it comes to skincare there's a lot of information about the right products to use, the right order to use them, and even the right number of steps in a skincare routine will give you healthy, glowing skin. But what’s just as important as what you use, is how much you use. Using too much could lead to a host of problems like breakouts, irritation, inflammation and clogged pores. Use too little and your skin won't reap the benefits of the active ingredients.
Here’s how you can make sure you’re maximizing your products — and not wasting them or compromising your skin in the process.
Professional grade moisturizers (sold in Spas) are very concentrated and are designed to deliver results through very small amounts. A dime-size amount is all you need. A 50ml Moisturizer used twice daily (am & pm) will last 6-8 weeks - 2 times as long if you use a separate day and night cream.
Less than one complete pump or, a pea-sized amount of serum gives skin a concentrated boost of active ingredients that help with hydration, sensitivity, fine lines, firming, acne, or dull skin. Most serums come in 30ml pump bottles that are designed to last approximately 8-12 weeks when used twice daily.
Less than one complete pump or a pea-sized amount of eye cream gives your delicate eye area the required care it needs to guard against signs of fatigue, stress and aging. Used twice daily, a 15ml Eye Cream will last 8-12 weeks.
Whether you use a gel or cream cleanser, a nickel-sized amount is all you need. For foaming cleanser, one pump should get the job done. Most cleansers come in 150-200 ml tubes/bottles and when used properly last approximately 12 weeks.
A nickel-sized amount of either a Mechanical or Enzymatic Exfoliator is all you need. Used properly (2-3 times a week) a 50ml tube will last 6 months.
A product’s performance is dependent on proper use - get better results from your Skincare by using the right amount, in the right order, the right way. . .
