When making changes to our skincare products, a skincare routine, or trying a professional skincare service for the first time our skin may react to the changes. Read more below to learn about how to monitor and take action on changes in your skin.
Reaction To Skincare
When adding a new product to your skincare routine (especially an active MD product) your skin may react to the new active ingredients in the products. This “reaction” is the skin undergoing a normal and routine purging phase and is completely normal. (See infographic on Skin Purging)
Should you experience any of the following reactions or symptoms stop use of skincare and consult with your skincare advisor.
- Burning sensation
- Redness lasting more than 7 days
- Swelling or numbness
