In trying out a new product, always do a patch test to assess your skin’s risk for allergic reaction before applying on your entire face. To do a patch test, select your forearm, (or any skin area that’s easy to conceal), apply a small amount of product and observe for 24 hours, if no side effects occur, you can apply to your face. Do not use it if you develop a rash, redness, or hives (please contact your healthcare provider for more info ).
Also, when it’s time for a full application, follow the instructions on the product label.
Just like other skincare products, consistency is key for maximum effect, so add it to your routine in a way that makes sense to you.
