Investing in a full skin care range might seem like a big step, especially for skin care beginners. When it comes to our face, it is important, and necessary to be mindful and conscious about our purchases – to make sure we pick “the right one”.
Below are top 5 frequently asked questions about DR’s Secret and our answers to address your doubts and help you make the right skin care choices.
1. Are DR’s Secret products suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin?
Yes. DR’s Secret products are formulated for all skin types. The secret lies in the targeted customisation of the skin routine for your current skin condition. This includes the amount you should be using for each product as well as the sequence in which they should be applied.
Thus, you would find that a skin routine to help you with sensitivity may differ from a skin routine that is meant to help your friend struggling with acne.
If you are allergic to certain ingredients, always check the product label. If you are concerned about sensitivity, a good practice is to do a sensitivity test first by applying the product at the back of your ear or the inside of your arm to detect any signs of reaction or allergy. This can help reduce the chances of irritation.
2. Are DR’s Secret products safe to be used long term? Will my skin become thinner with long-term use?
DR’s Secret products are designed to cater to different skin conditions. Our formulations focus on harnessing the efficacy of botanical extracts to stimulate skin renewal, without the use of any steroids or hormones.
Products are also regularly sent for extensive laboratory tests, such as the world-leading product testing company – Societe Generale de Surveillance S.A (SGS) to ensure compliance to product safety.
DR’s Secret products do not cause the skin to become thinner. As we age, our skin renewal rate slows down. DR’s Secret products work to soften and remove dead skin cells, oil and dirt that have accumulated on the skin surface, increasing skin renewal rate and uncovering natural skin glow. This keeps the skin’s normal exfoliating process active without thinning the skin.
3. Will my skin worsen or experience rebound effects should I stop using DR’s Secret?
Just like how our body weakens when we stop feeding it with sufficient nourishment, the condition of our skin will naturally decline without proper care and maintenance, or if skin care is stopped.
As our skin is constantly changing and adapting to our environment and age, we encourage you to follow a regular skin care routine with DR’s Secret products to maintain the skin at its optimal condition.
4. Can I use DR’s Secret products with other skin care brands and products?
Our skilled formulators pay meticulous attention to ensure the synergy between active ingredients so that they work in seamless harmony with your skin’s natural processes. This means that products are formulated to work well with each other for complementary effects and boosted results.
For best results, we do not recommend mixing with other skin care brands and products, especially for beginners. You may also consider starting your routine with our starter kits.
Your skin consultant will be able to quickly recognise the issue should any reaction occur and provide a quick solution. This process might be slowed down should other products be mixed into your routine as it might be difficult to determine the cause.
Give the full range a try for a couple of months for the full experience!
5. How long does it take to see visible results?
In general, you should see noticeable improvements approximately 1 month after consistent application. Our skin cells require at least 28 days to go through a full renewal cycle (this period may extend with age) and we encourage consistent use for 3 to 6 months to see significant results.
Individual results may vary depending on your current skin condition. Those with more severe skin problems would need more time and those with a good skin foundation might notice results in a matter of weeks.
The key is to be patient, understanding that DR’s Secret does not simply provide a quick temporal fix, but rather has the ability to eradicate long-term skin problems and transform your skin from the inside out.
In the long run, you should be able to witness skin that is healthier and rejuvenated.
