Between skincare and makeup, women report using quite a few products – for many people it's 20 or more.
Though it seems like each product zeros in on a specific function, doctors and dermatologists agree that less is actually more.
For one thing, lots of very specific products don't deliver huge benefits. And for another, using more and more products just raises your chances of allergic reactions and mystery ingredients.
So here's the tip: Cut back on product overload. Keep it simple! Professionals in this New York Times article and this more recent one from More magazine all recommend no more than two or three products for the morning and three before bedtime.
The Style List has an even more radical approach to try: Taking a week off from makeup. Completely. We'll dig into that idea in a future post!
