An estimated 80% of women wear the wrong size bra. It seems surprising that it could be so common to make a mistake in choosing what feels right for your body, but the same can be said of people knowing their correct skin type.

So it makes sense that people could be mistaken when choosing the correct products for their skin’s needs.
