If you’re introducing new serums, masks or exfoliants, you may experience some tingling. This is perfectly normal, but pay attention to your skin’s reaction. The tingling should subside within a few minutes, and it should never burn.

Light flaking or mild breakouts might take place if you’re incorporating new products with a higher percentages of active ingredients, especially if AHAs and retinol is involved. Start gradually and work your way up.

Reactions that you should be concerned about are: any type of rash, prolonged redness, itching, severe breakouts and burning. If any of those occur, it’s best to discontinue the products.
