Brand Name or Mix It Up?

So this is something I have been thinking about for a bit. Is it really all that important to stick with the same brand name products for your entire skin care regimen? Some people say that you should not mix it up at all because it is more effective using the same product system. Others say that it is a trick by companies for you to buy more of their products.

I am one of those people who like to have the same brand name. When I use Aloette products, I know I am getting premium aloe vera that I can’t get anywhere else and that my skin is hydrated without a super heavy lotion. However, that is only my preference.

Although it is true what I said about the aloe vera, there is no study showing that you have to use the same brand name to get the best results. What you will find is that when you use the same brand is that the results you want (clearing up acne, calming redness, rebalancing pH levels) will be more in line to the timeline they lay out for you.

Mixing up products may delay or hasten the process. But if your goal is just to get positive results for your skin then I believe all skin care products will do that for you. Another question to ask yourself is: do I want it organic or not? There are plenty of articles about blacklist ingredients in cosmetics. Read more about blacklist cosmetic ingredients here.

Experts do caution about using different brand products that contain active ingredients such as retinol, glycolic acid, salicyclic acid, or peptides (Besthealthmag.ca)
