One of the most common requests I get from my readers are recommendations for effective skincare that can stay under a reasonable budget. While I love responding to these emails, it’s really hard to make product recommendations in response to every email or message because every person has their own skincare concerns as well as lifestyles that affect this.
Throughout my 6 years of being an esthetician, I have observed that the majority of people often purchase skincare that is simply not suitable for their skin type. The skincare industry offers way too many options for consumers, which may seem like a good thing, but can be overwhelming to most who aren’t familiar with any of it. What’s an AHA? Why does my moisturizer make me oily? Is benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid better for my pimples?
To simplify skincare for my readers who are skincare newbies, I wanted to share my experience with Skinsei, a brand that offers reasonably-priced customized skincare regimens. Skinsei understands that there are many factors that can affect your skin conditions, such as lifestyle, diet, and even environmental factors like temperature and air quality. With all of these creating nuances in the quality of our skin, why would anyone expect a one-size-fits-all solution?
The Skinsei experience starts with an intensive online diagnostic and selfie skin analysis so the brand can learn your skin type and create a custom regimen to address your skin concerns. Once you get your results, you can review the recommended products, place your order, and then receive your personalized skincare kit at your doorstep. I really love the concept of a monthly subscription, because not only does the product sizing make skincare more affordable, but it gives you the opportunity to order new products as your skin changes along with the seasons. No product goes to waste, and what you get are significant improvements.
My Skinsei regimen has been a game-changer for me as the seasons have changed from summer to winter overnight in Los Angeles. My skin gets outrageously oily during the summertime, while in the winter I get dry patches and tightness. Swapping out my products have given me immediate relief from the abrupt plunging temperatures.
As an esthetician, Skinsei comes highly recommended by me!
