Perhaps the main reason someone mixes and uses layer by product is to treat acne. But after using it, even more zits become more and more severe inflammation. Dr. Sejal Shah, a dermatologist from Smarterkin Dermatology, said, “Fighting oily skin and breakouts by using a lot of special acne products can have the opposite effect. When you use too many products, the skin will actually become too dry and only make inflammation worse. ” Citing Woman Talk, advice before mixing and using a long range of skin beauty care products, read carefully the ingredients contained in it.
