Skin care pilling can occur when a client has more than one or two products in their skin care routine that are either applied incorrectly pill due to ingredients. Allure spoke with dermatologists to understand why skin care can pill.  

Some tips to offer clients when they come across this issue include the following.

  • Apply skin care from lightest to heaviest product.

  • Give time for products to dry before applying the next one.

Remember, not all ingredients work well together, so make sure clients are using products with the right cocktail of ingredients.
