How Much To Use?

Oftentimes I see videos and demos of people applying everything from cleansers to serums and moisturizers - and they're slathering it on like butter on a biscuit! It drives me batty to watch!! Read the instructions (as you should before using any product) and you will often see "dime sized", or "pea sized" amounts, but this seems a bit too difficult for some to envision. So I went in search of a better demonstration of the proper amounts to use. One of the products I use posted this graphic up and I thought it was a brilliant way to show the right amounts. You want to be sure not to over do it - you're not doing your skin any favors! In addition to just being a waste of product, it can also have the following adverse effects: ~ counteract other products ~ cause skin irritation, redness, peeling ~ may not absorb properly ~ clog pores/cause breakouts Just a side note, using too many serums can also reduce the chances of ingredients being properly absorbed into the skin according to esthetician Enrique Ramirez, founder of Face To Face NYC. šŸ‘‰ How many products are in your repertoire? According to this graphic, have you been overdoing it on any of your products?
