Is 7 skincare products too much?

Yes, using too many skincare products at once can be harmful to the skin. The skin is a delicate organ and overloading it with too many products can cause irritation, dryness, redness and even skin rashes. Taking too much care of your skin can be bad news for any skin type. Excessive exfoliation, combining acid scrubs, or using them too often can cause red, dry spots on the face, leading people to counteract dryness with thick creams that cause congestion or acne breakouts.

Using scrubs or brushes to exfoliate is ineffective and can irritate the skin. Acne, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and post-inflammatory pigmentation can be aggravated by friction. Although exfoliating technologies are constantly being promoted in the media, the benefits often come with risks. If they have rough skin on their body, I advise them to exfoliate, but if they are already using an acid or retinol on their face, that should be enough.

Chacón says that often her patients come with tons of skin care products that they use for various conditions, but all they have to prove is that they have irritated skin.
