Skincare and cosmetics have changed immeasurably in the last decade. Ten years ago the mantra was ‘cleanse tone and moisturize’ Now it’s altered beyond all recognition, encouraging us all into beauty regimes that use increasingly scientific formulations with cutting-edge ingredients for targeted results.
There’s nothing wrong with this, but what it means is that there are a wealth of products to choose from and sometimes a bewildering array of instructions to accompany them. What if there was a way to get highly personalized skincare, tailored precisely to your needs – offering outstanding results for one initial outlay?
Bespoke and customized skincare is the new kid on the block that could help solve your beauty dilemmas. Here’s how.
Perfectly tailored beauty products
Taking a skin care product off the shelf in a drugstore can sometimes be a gamble. Will it suit your skin? Cause breakouts? Make your face feel dry? The product has been created for a mass market and has to appeal to many different consumers each with different skin types and concerns.
Whilst there are many good skincare brands out there that market their products to a broad range of customers and with great results, there are many that don’t always make the grade. We all know the brands that have lasted and stood the test of time – and can probably name a few that have fallen by the wayside and with good reason! This is why it’s good to shake things up a bit and consider different methods of skincare and beauty.
Bespoke and prescription skincare turns this idea on its head – and there are companies out there already making considerable waves with consumers. It works very simply. Use an online or in-person service – which will ask you a series of questions about your skin and your needs. After this, a fully customized plan, containing all the skincare you’ll need is offered, and all you need to do is commit for a few weeks to see how it works for you.
Benefits of bespoke skincare
The recurring theme among the majority of brands putting time and effort into bespoke skincare technology is that they’re often backed by dermatologists, scientists, or pharmacists who have knowledge, skills, and training in formulating products and how the skin works.
Therefore you’ll get something that is not only backed by clinical expertise but likely made to order, in small batches and sometimes even with a highly specialized consultation which can be done using computer technology or remotely via a smartphone.
The products you’ll receive will be targeted to any specific concerns you have – whether that’s acne and spots, aging and wrinkles or simply improving a tired, dull-looking complexion. Brands may offer follow-up consultations to see how you’re getting on with your regime and offer tweaks if needed.
