Why micro-dose skincare

Rory McGowan-founder of theonly skincare

Applying minimal amounts active ingredients with your skincare products will enable you to achieve the desired benefits without overwhelming the skin. This approach has recently gained popularity due to several reasons:

  1. Skin sensitivity: Sme individuals have sensitive skin can react negatively to excessive amounts of active ingredients in skincare products. Micro-dosing allows them to minimize the risk of irritation or adverse reactions.
  2. Product efficacy: Using a smaller amount of a product does not necessarily mean it is less effective. In fact, some active ingredients are so highly concentrated and require only a small quantity to deliver their intended benefits. By micro-dosing, you can ensure that you're using just enough product to achieve the desired outcome.
  3. Cost-effective: High-quality skincare products can be expensive, and using them sparingly through micro-dosing can help extend their usage. It allows you to make the most out of your skincare investments while still reaping the benefits.
  4. Minimalistic approach: Micro-dosing skincare aligns with the minimalist skincare trend, where individuals focus on using a limited number of products that are essential for their skin's needs. This approach promotes simplicity and avoids overwhelming the skin with an excessive number of products.
  5. Customization: Micro-dosing allows for greater customization of skincare routines. You can tailor the amount of product used based on your specific skin concerns, needs, and reactions. This approach enables you to fine-tune your skincare regimen to suit your unique skin type and goals.

However, it's important to note that micro-dosing may not be suitable for all skincare products or skin types. Some products require specific amounts to be effective, and certain skin conditions may necessitate a different approach.
