New fangle angle. This is a something new whereby I hope to see many readers participate in, both to answer my question and also maybe someone else's. If you as a reader hope to see an answer too, please welcome anyone you know to come and comment too.
I am going halfway through my 3rd tub of Biotherm's Aquasource moisturizer. As I usually scoop a small amount out from the big tub to a smaller container, yesterday marked the day when I had finished up those in the smaller one. As it was already late at night, I was too lazy to bring all my utensils out to perform the operation.
What to do when you are out of moisturizer? Whipped out a trusty sample of course.
I am currently using Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. It is not as oily as I expected and seems to work well with my skin. Then it got me thinking. Is it beneficial to change/swap our moisturizer once in a while?
Dissecting this question from one point of view, I came up with the answer "maybe it is better" with the argument that maybe our skin will get used to a particular moisturizer that we have been using for a prolonged period of time. Maybe our skin is already immune to the effect of the moisturizer. Maybe our skin no longer absorbs any of the nutrients like it once did.
From another perspective, another side of me wanted to scream 'NO!'. If you find a moisturizer that works well for your skin, that does not break you out, that does not turn your face purple, do you want to venture into unexplored-skincare-danger zone? Tell me the truth, would you change your favourite hairstylist?
Please let me hear your views.
