It can be easy to assume that something expensive must be worth its price. But when it comes to splurging RM200 for a tiny tub of moisturiser, does the same principle still apply? Ask any dermatologist and they’ll reveal the truth – expensive skincare products are not necessarily superior compared to their regularly-priced counterparts.
Why are they so pricey in the first place?
Fact is, there are plenty of reasons as to what makes a product expensive. The most common factor is that consumers are paying for the brand instead of the product. Take luxury skincare for example – more often than not, the money you’re paying goes to marketing fluff and fancy luxe packaging with a trademark logo, rather than truly groundbreaking ingredients or breakthrough technology in skincare.
That said, there are certain exceptions to this. Many skincare lovers who splurge routinely may claim their favourite product to be truly one-of-a-kind; and therefore, worth every penny spent. Perhaps it could be a proprietary blend of skincare ingredients that is exclusive to the brand and therefore couldn’t be found elsewhere, or an incredible formula that smoothes on like silk and absorbs in seconds. It could also contain higher concentrations of active ingredients such as retinoids, antioxidants and exfoliating acids to further justify the price.
Is there a better option to expensive skincare?
Suffice to say, there is little way of knowing whether an expensive skincare product can work wonders, until you’ve personally tried it. However, not all of us have the luxury of time nor funds to try and test products one by one, brand by brand.
The best alternative is to stick to our usual tried-and-true products that we know work for our specific skin type and skin concern, and choosing to invest instead in routine facial treatments that can deliver better results without any of the guesswork!
Why facial treatments should be part of your facial regime?
“But wait, aren’t facials really more as a relaxing rather than functional ritual to pamper oneself?”
Think of professional facial treatments just like a visit to the dentist. You’re still brushing your teeth everyday at home, just like how you practise a skincare routine regularly. But every now and then, it’s still necessary to schedule a visit to the dentist to remove plaque build-up and monitor your overall dental health. It’s the same for facials – there are specific services that only a professional skin center like Medic Deno can offer, such as the removal of blackheads and whiteheads, treating acne and analysing the skin to continuously fine-tune your skincare routine for best results.
Especially for people with troubled skin conditions with acne, clogged pores, scars or blemishes, this type of skin usually requires proper systematic care to treat the existing concern and revitalise the health of the skin to prevent a relapse of the condition. Most aestheticians recommend that people undergo a facial once a month or once every few weeks for proper maintenance.
