Question: I was wondering if it is okay to use more than one product line in my daily cleansing/mosturizing routine? Or does the mix of all these chemicals ruin skin?

Answer: You’re definitely free to mix popular brands and basics on your face just like you would mix up your fashion (like wearing a Chanel jacket with Levis jeans).

If your skin isn’t experiencing any adverse reactions, you’re in the clear— literally. However, as soon as you do detect anything, be sure to see your dermatologist and find out what ingredient or mix of ingredients is causing your skin to react.
