A lesson learned
So I have been using Serious Skincare and getting great results. Was I happy? NOOOOOOOOO! I thought, I should add some argon oil from you know who. Flash forward,,,,,,,,Zits, Zits and more Zits! Now I am using an acne medication to clear up the problem. I will be going back to SSC for sure. What is the moral of the story? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! If you find a great skincare line, stick with it. Don’t fall for all the advertising crapola. Thank you very much!
I haven’t had a problem with my pores using Korres rose oil. I love that stuff, it sinks right in, smell wonderful and moisturizes beautifully. I can’t put Argon oil on my face, only in my hair or I have the same zit problem.
Oil! That’s what did it! Oils clogg the skin. Good luck with your fix.
I had the exact same problem with Argan oil. Made my face breakout really badly. Not all oil does that, either – I use Korres rose oil on my face, and never have a breakout. Argan oil is strange, when I realized I couldn’t use it on my face I tried it on my hands. It soaks in and an hour later, you aren’t at all moisturized! It just doesn’t last. I don’t get why it’s so popular, I really don’t.
There are so many men and women that use this line. I agree with the replies given. When you purchase a new line your skin has to get use to it, I do not have any trouble with the A, C, C- 2 step, Glycolic, Glycolic Gommage.
To switch up I use Dr. Graf’s products
because my skin knows what is being put on. I have been w/ SSC for more than a decade and regardless of the comments, I Love SSC and the presentations. I am over 50 and no wrinkle products or makeup needed. All it took was the little green tube of Replicate and renew.. I was sold and life time customer.
I exfoliate with K. West 360 for the intire body. It is possible you may have sent you skin into shock for a moment. Do not worry it will clear up, When you find a product that is good for you stay with it. Everyones skin is not the same. Apples and oranges hang in there if you are having serious pain please see your PCM and best wishes for you.
Josie Maran products are nice. I assume the “you know who” is SCA. I purchase Josie when she has a TSV or a ODO. She gives good deals on her kits. Her argan oil is cold first pressed.
I am sorry that you had a bad experience with argan oil. I think that you are wise. When you find products that work for you, you need to stick with them.
I have been using an argan oil kit that really hydrates my skin. It has done wonders for me. I have been blessed with good skin…neither oily or dry.
I have tried products that others have suggested on this board. Some have worked well, and others have not worked for me. In other words, I just purchase what works for me now.
? Which Serious Skincare products gave u great results?
Do you exfoiate your skin? If you are oily you should do it every day, that will clear up the breakouts and keep them from coming back. Your products will be more more effective too.
as someone who has acne-prone skin, i ALWAYS take the “hype” on oils with a grain of salt. i also try to keep in mind that everybody’s skin is different. some folks with acne-prone skin can use “light oils” liberally on their skin. i cannot. if i do use an oil, i try to concentrate it on areas of my face that can handle it/need it. ie., lightly around my orbital eye area. and, if i do end up feeling crushed regarding my perception that i am the only lone ranger who can’t join the “i use light oils” phenomenon bandwagon, i try to remind myself that my feelings and perceptions are a direct result of FOMO (“fear of missing out”). if i change my thinking, i change my life. :heart: love it. xoxo
The dimethicone and additives prob clogged ur pores. If u ever want to try Argan again, get 100% pure 1st cold pressed instead.
