Why doesn’t my skin absorb anything?

There are several reasons why your skin may not be absorbing products properly:

  1. Dead skin cells: When skin is covered in a buildup of dead skin cells, it can be difficult for products to penetrate the surface. Exfoliating regularly can help remove dead skin cells and allow for better product absorption.
  2. pH imbalance: The pH of your skin plays a role in how well it absorbs products. When the pH is off balance, the skin’s barrier function can be compromised, making it harder for products to be absorbed.
  3. Dehydration: If your skin is dehydrated, it can be more difficult for products to penetrate the surface. Drinking enough water and using a good moisturizer can help to hydrate the skin.
  4. Using too many products: Using too many products at once can create a barrier on the skin, preventing other products from being absorbed. It’s important to use products in the correct order and to not overuse them.
  5. Not using the right products: Certain skin conditions such as oily or acne-prone skin may require specific types of products, such as oil-free or non-comedogenic products. Using the wrong products can make it harder for the skin to absorb them.
  6. Not giving products enough time to work: Some products can take time to work, so it’s important to be patient and consistent with your skincare routine.

If you’re not sure why your skin is not absorbing products, it’s best to consult with a dermatologist. They can help you identify the cause and recommend appropriate treatment options.
