Often when we try a new serum or moisturizer, once we apply our sunblock or concealer, it appears that our skin is peeling. Time to return to our original beauty routine? Not so fast! There is probably nothing wrong with your product. It is simply pilling. “Pilling occurs when too much product is applied and, most often, when applying multiple products in layers,” says Celeste Hilling, CEO of healthy skin lifestyle company, Skin Authority. “People will think their skin is peeling when it is actually excess product rolling on the surface of the skin. The skin can’t absorb the excess and it rolls into little balls on the skin as the fingers move it in circular motions,” she adds. So how to you prevent product overload? “It is best to follow the ‘less is more’ philosophy when applying product,” asserts Hilling, “especially when layering. 1-2 drops should be more than enough to cover the face and neck of a effective grade skin product.” Speaking of drops, Skin Authority has just launched a new line of Beauty Infusions, addressing four skin concerns: brightening, hydrating, anti-aging, and clarifying.
