Professional product vs drugstore brands
The big question: are drugstore products as good as professional?
The answer, in my opinion, is no unfortunately. In this world you get what you pay for and in this case that is professional skin care. A lot of the time I have clients ask me why professional is so much more expensive. Well it may be more expensive immediately, but professional sizes tend to be bigger and more concentrated so you use less. In the end, the cost equals out.
Another reason why professional is better is because they use more plant extracted ingredients which is the closest to the skin’s DNA you can get. This means when the product is applied to the skin it is absorbed better and more efficiently which gives you the best benefits. Most of the time professional skin care lines use active ingredients like Vitamin A & C- also known as AHA and retinoic Acid.. Active Ingredients are essential for good skin health. Active ingredient repairs from a cellular level where basically all the essential development of a healthy skin happens.. Without a healthy, high capacity working cell then skin issues will occur. Generic brands tend to use synthetic chemical based ingredient so when this is applied to the skin the skin doesn’t recognize it and it sends your skin into histamine state. This is your skin’s defense mechanism to fend off foreign objects that may harm the skin. So when that happens eventualyl your skin will weaken and this causes problems such as sensitivity..
My last tip: always use natural products on the skin and you will get the most benefots from your skin care which means more value for your hard earned money. And of course more radiant beautiful skin, which is what we all want!
