Piling Issues :(

Hey all, hope you are doing well๐Ÿ’• As English isn't my first language I'm not sure what's the correct spelling of this word is but I think it's called as piling up/balling up!!! I am facing piling issues alot :( If I layer 2-3 serums and apply moisturizer it starts piling up. I apply gel sunscreen and try to apply talc powder on top of it, it starts piling, basically anything that's not piling for others, pils for me. I do use Salicylic acid/Lactic acid once a week. Please help me resolve this issue๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ ps - I do have slight facial hairs (if that could be an issue, I don't shave my face) Thanks in advance ๐Ÿฅฐ

i would try checking your ingredients. silicone, talc, and iron oxide have caused the most pilling for me. iโ€™ve been told to stay away from basically anything ending in -icone, -conol, or -xane in order to prevent pilling. i would also try not layering your serums and just using one.

I will try to check the ingredients but I heard how serums work great together, so I tried to follow that, I'll try this as well :) thank you

I agree, when you start to layer too many things I see this happening as well

Hi!! Maybe your using too many products, not letting them absorb into your skin, or one (or more) of the products don't combine with other ones in your routine. I'd try: - Reduce steps on my routine - Let each step sit and absorb fully before applying the next product.

I usually layer 2/3 serums + moisturizer. I usually wait till it's kinda dried on my face i.e 50-60 seconds, how long do you recommend me to wait before applying other products?

I would definitely try allowing your products to absorb properly before applying another product also try only 1 serum one day and the other the next day to see if it is a specific serum that is causing the pilling
