Is layering as good as it is claimed to be?
✔ Layering is the application of “successive layers” of products to your skin. Novexpert reveals a secret to you: it’s a waste of time and money, and what’s more it harms the good bacteria in your skin!
✔ With layering your skin practices apnea in all seasons. Applying multiple layers prevents your skin from breathing. Clogged pores = acne guaranteed.
✔ “Less is more”, that’s Novexpert’s motto! Applying a maximum of 5 treatments per day is a reasonable choice.
THE LAYERING, GOOD FOR THE INDUSTRY, MAYBE A LITTLE LESS FOR YOU...
The "layering," which translates to "successive layers," consists of transforming yourself into a sandwich onto which more than 10 layers of skincare are conscientiously applied per day! A skincare ritual that, on average, doubles the time of your daily routine and blows up your beauty budget! The success of "layering" has always surprised me because it seems to defy common sense, from a toxicological, allergological, and dermatological point of view.
NO "BEAST" SURVIVES THERE...
It should be noted that a conventional cosmetic formula contains on average 1% preservatives. So, ten layers of care amount to applying 10 x 1% of... preservatives! Under these conditions of "ultra sterility," it is difficult to maintain your "good" bacteria, these famous skin probiotics.
So it's like at the casino, the more you play, the more you increase your chances of losing...
...your good bacteria and to develop allergies! It's mathematical: on average, 10 treatments x 25 ingredients = 250 ingredients applied every day to your skin, knowing that one ingredient can contain several hundred molecules and one of these molecules can trigger an allergy. Follow me? A real game of Russian roulette.
PLAY THE BIG BLUE IN YOUR BATHROOM
Did you know that your skin breathes? It's precisely 720 liters of oxygen that pass through the skin every 24 hours, which is 7% of our total oxygen. This exchange takes place through the subcutaneous blood vessels but also through the pores of the skin. Now that you are a distinguished biologist, you will understand that applying nearly 10 layers of cosmetics to your skin forces it to practice apnea like Jacques Mayol...
BECOME A TEENAGER AGAIN...
...and see pimples appear on your pretty face? Even if all your beauty products are supposedly "non-comedogenic," no test takes into account the fact that you will apply more than 10 on your skin. A guaranteed "pore-clogging" effect, dead skin cells stuck together with an excess of artificial sebum, we have here a recipe for a dermatological syndrome called "cosmetic acne."
Like layering, I have just accumulated successive layers of arguments, so I must offer you an alternative. Easy suggestions to implement in your daily routine with just one watchword: "Less is more"! I love this phrase because it perfectly summarizes the wisdom of frugality. Buy less, but better.
Applying a maximum of 5 treatments per day seems to me to be a reasonable choice.
WHAT ABOUT SPECIFIC PRODUCTS?
Masks: Use hydrating, soothing, nourishing masks... as soon as your skin has been aggressed: after sports, after a long plane journey, exposure to the sun or wind, etc. I personally use the Plumping Mask after every surfing session.
Cure products (peeling type) : They will replace your evening treatment punctually.
