One of the first things I was taught in Beauty School (where I went in my early 30s in 1997) was that at that time, just in the United States alone the skincare industry boasted $3.2 Billion in sales annually. The reason stated? It’s incredibly easy to sell moisturizer. I’m not kidding, that’s really what they said. Frankly, I think it’s extremely impressive. Everyone needs moisturizer. There’s a reason there are so many out there to choose from. Like I always say, “Everything works for somebody, nothing works for everybody.”
My job in specializing in Adult Acne is to make sure my clients are getting adequate healing and hydration in their lotions while avoiding pore clogging and irritation. In addition, my job especially is to make sure they’re getting anti-aging concerns taken care of without clogging pores and causing breakouts unnecessarily. Prevention is a big part of anti-aging consciousness these days, and it comes up a lot in my practice.
So what about eye cream for prevention?
Gimmick, or necessity?
