  1. Because of my sensitive skin, I’ve made a habit of calling my dermatologist enquiring more about a particular skincare product before buying it. No matter how mild an allergy might be, it can be life-threatening. I’m one of those people who believe that prevention is always far much better than cure.

  2. Karol 26 March 2013 :

    Correct. I’ve always made a point of checking with a dermatologist even though a product may state that it is 100% organic.

  3. Ricci 31 March 2013 :

    I’ve a habit of using products that have been clinically tested and proven. But since herbal products are different, I always read consumer reviews before making my purchase.

  4. Nonna Ruggis 14 July 2013 :

    I have dry hair, therefore always take extra care of it, and do protein treatment at home twice a month. Using a good quality hair conditioner for dry hair will also help to get rid of frizzes.
