Is made-for-you beauty a one-way ticket to a flawless complexion? The industry’s skincare powerhouses seem to think so.
Even if it is not stamped with your monogram, nothing says luxury like a bespoke beauty product. Whether it is a treatment made just for your breakouts or a supercharged serum, options for a custom bottle of moisturiser have never been more readily available. Methods for fine-tuning formulas range from intuitive mobile apps, online questionnaires, and one-on-one consultations.
