Mixing And Matching Skincare Products Is A Faux Pas!

Rodan and Fields

Mixing and matching outfits can be a great way to add some flare to your wardrobe, however if you over do it by mixing and matching certain fabrics and patterns you may encounter a fashion Faux Pas. 

Most of us don't realize it, but this rule not only applies to fashion, but applies to our skincare regimen as well!

Combining incompatible skincare products, increases the likelihood that you won't get the results you are looking for.

According to the website owned by Dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields (makers of Proactiv and Rodan + Fields Skincare):

"Sometimes the ingredients in different skincare prod­ucts counteract each other, so you won’t experience the intended benefits of either product. You may experience tandem irritation. This means that if you were to use either of the products independently, your skin would be fine, but when you use them together, your skin experiences irritation.

When layering different products on your skin, you also may experience “product incompatibility,” which you can easily test for by rubbing your face after a product has dried. If it peels, balls, or curdles, there is product incompatibility. To get the most from your skincare, you should use a regimen that works synergistically to deliver measurable results."

My favourite products to use are from the Rodan + Fields skincare line (available in Canada in August 2014). If you are looking for a great Anti-Age Regimen that is clinically proven and specifically formulated to ensure amazing results... I recommend the REDEFINE Power Pack.

The REDEFINE regimen is a comprehensive skincare regimen that layers cosmetic ingredients and proven peptide technology to help defend against and reduce the visible signs of aging for noticeably firmer, smoother, flawless-looking skin.

For best results, use REDEFINE Daily Cleansing Mask, Pore Minimizing Toner and Triple Defense Treatment in the morning. Replace Triple Defense Treatment with Overnight Restorative Cream as the last step of the regimen in the evening.

For smooth and fresh looking skin, add the REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator into your nighttime skincare routine once per week and use the AMP MD System in your regular nighttime skincare routine. It's important to note that The AMP MD System should not be used on the same day you macro-exfoliate.

The order in which you use any skincare product is also be important. One product may create an environment on your skin that enhances penetration of subsequent products, while another may actually block products or ingredients from penetrating skin.

The thing I love about Rodan + Fields skincare products is that all their regimen's come with an easy 1,2,3 step process, so you know exactly what product to use and when.

Using products consistently and as directed helps you achieve a skincare fashion statement that will never go out of style!
