What Is Customized Skin Care?
The majority of skin care products have a single mass-produced formula. Even two people with dry skin can have other vastly different skin issues. Over-the-counter products do not take into account a person’s specific skin care requirements. However, customized skincare products exist. Dermatology compounding is a process that goes hand in hand with customized skin care. It can address several skin issues at once through a single product because compounding is combining individual ingredients that will work best for an individual based on his or her skin needs.
Skin Type And Goals
Skin type and skin concerns vary between people. These will be asked during your dermatologist appointment because these are important considerations in creating a customized product.
Some examples of skin types:
Possible skin goals may be:
- A more even skin tone
- Less visible pores
- Brighter, glowing skin
- Softer or supple skin

Frequently Asked Questions
Product selection is based on your own opinion of your skin type, sensitivity, and skin issues. Because you are not visiting a dermatologist, these cannot be verified through a physical examination which means that the product you purchase online may sometimes not actually be the right product for you.
Before applying new products to your skin, always perform a patch test.
You may be tempted to use your new products right away, but it’s always a good idea to test how your skin will respond to the ingredients first, even if the product was prescribed to you by a dermatologist. A patch test can help reduce the likelihood of unfavorable reactions.
Patch testing is especially crucial if you have sensitive skin or allergies to specific substances in skin care or if it is your first time being exposed to a certain ingredient.
To do a patch test:
- Apply a small amount of the product to the place or near the place where you intend to use it. A body lotion can be applied to your inner wrist, whereas a face moisturizer can be applied along your jawline or behind your ear.
- Do not wash the area for 24 to 48 hours and observe for any skin changes such as discoloration, wheals, peeling, or itching.
If you don’t feel any irritation, the product is probably safe to use.
