8 Skin Care Habits That Make Facialists Face Palm
Even if you think you've got your cleanse-tone-moisturize routine down, there's probably still something you do that drives the pros crazy
Of course, sticking with one regimen for two months and still not liking the results would be a major letdown. So seek out professional help (whether from a dermatologist or esthetician) before you stock up on serums. True, an appointment with a pro might be a bit pricey, but as King points out, it's better than wasting money on products that won't work for you.
What you shouldn't do? Simply ask your friend with clear skin what she uses. "You're not the same as your friend, so you won't necessarily have the same reaction," King says.
Somerville adds that there are an "infinite number of skin types and combinations -- and everyone is different." So a professional can help you sort all that out and choose products that will really help your skin. However, King adds, "if you feel like you're just being sold something and the salesperson hasn't addressed your skin concerns, then don't take [those recommendations]" and try someone else.
