if i’m drinking a lot it’s because i’m talking a lot bitch and i need hydration okay whoo oh my gosh so many questions okay wow wow okay um let’s see uh so do you believe in the anti-aging benefits of ginseng or is it a gimmick i’m using the i’m from ginseng mask three times a week um and on my nights off point twenty-five percent rattle sorry i had trouble reading that um so saying um i think i think i’m pronouncing that right i never know if i’m pronouncing that right to be honest ginseng ginseng i mean i’m bad at pronunciations we all know this um i’d say like it’s an incredible ingredient anti-aging i i wouldn’t tout it as the incredible anti-aging product i think it’s a great you know antioxidant i think it’s great for skin soothing abilities i think it’s great for the overall health of the skin but if you’re comparing it to something like retinol or even chemical exfoliants i i personally don’t believe it’s that strong um although ginseng has been used for like hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years as you know an effective like skincare ingredient so i you know part part of me is like okay trust history you know but at the same time like i don’t believe that there’s been enough scientific research to show that ginseng is actually like an effective anti-aging ingredient at least in comparison to retinol but i do think it’s amazing i do like that um i’m from ginseng mask i love i’m from i think they’re a great brand and i think the ingredient is awesome like whenever i see ginseng in a product i’m like wow okay i want this on my face um but you know i will say you probably should still use retinol i still think that’s the best anti-aging ingredient and you know if you don’t have a retinol in your routine and you are looking for anti-aging results you just need to get a retinol in your routine asap because that’s just the best thing out there thank you for the question let’s see uh haley says hire me i’m such a huge fan thank you haley um what are your thoughts on trader joe’s skincare if there was a trader joe’s in freaking hawaii i would be able to tell you but there there isn’t um my um my manager who lives in the main lounge i know at one point she was planning on sending me trader joe’s skincare i think quarantine got that kind of fucked up but um but at some point she was going to send it to me um so i’ll let you know um from what i remember there is one product that i know i think that’s like their moisturizing cream or something that was actually really good i don’t think it had any fragrance or irritants um but i don’t know you know i wish there was a trader joe’s in hawaii so i could tell you but there isn’t so it’s kind of hard for me to like get a look at the ingredient list but i can search online a little more and see i just want to be able to like try out some of the products before i like speak to a lot of the formulas you know thoughts on the ordinary alpha are butane also it’s using snail amusement followed by alpha arbutin and niacinamide too much so no i don’t think so snail mucin is a great ingredient to hair alongside others it’s not an active ingredient so you’re not going to see like irritation it’s more just focused on hydration and plumping um alpha arbutin is great i mean it’s it’s a skin brightening um agent so if you are struggling with dark spots um i think it’s a it’s a great one to use but i also think alpha arbutin should be used like in moderation um you know and it depends on the intent of like what you’re using it for i think it’s great for like fading dark spots and acne scars but um sometimes people want to use like a high concentration of alpha are being across their entire face which i don’t think is necessarily good nor needed and it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun but um i love alpha arbutin you know um i’ve talked about hydroquinone that ingredient on my channel i think hydrophone is really effective at getting rid of dark spots but um when used in like all over face creams it can like make your skin extremely sensitive to the sun and alpha arbutin is basically like a component of hydroquinone um that works in the same way and so i i think it’s great i think it’s awesome and a great like alternative to the intensity that hydroquinone has um but you know just use it for like spots and acne scars and stuff like that and you should be good let’s see uh recommendations for body acne legs aren’t back in chest you know i discovered a new product hold up i don’t have it by me okay um i have like a bunch of skincare products around me that i like to reference when i’m filming um the versed body acne mist i think it’s so awesome because for you know body it’s really difficult like when you’re using a cleanser when you’re using a lotion to like get every part of your body and also you know um if you’re like a athlete or something it’s easy to like sweat it out quickly um that mist though it has really good ingredients that has salsa like acid i believe at the highest percentage and i just think it’s a great formula it’s also like a non-pressurized mist in a recyclable bottle which i never find like ever so it’s finally like a mess where i’m like oh okay i’m really comfortable using this instead of like the pressurized ones that you can’t recycle um and are bad for the environment so i would recommend checking that one out because i saw that when i was like wow that’s a great one but otherwise just using like a good um body acne cleanser um or just sorry a face acne cleanser as well like the oh my goodness oh here it is the survey renewing salicylic acid cleanser if you can find it because this thing is like going to be on the black market soon because it’s so difficult to find because it’s sold out everywhere but that’s one that i also recommend or just any you know um face cleanser for acne works on the body well okay oh so many questions so many questions okay let’s see um what’s my opinion of benzoyl peroxide thank you madison um benzoyl peroxide i think is great you know i don’t necessarily tout it like i it’s not my first go-to recommendation and i think it’s because like there are some drawbacks to benzoyl peroxide if you use it as a leave on treatment it can stain your pillows um also it can kind of like dry out the skin pretty easily and i think it’s best for people with really you know oily skin um but if you are sensitive to salicylic acid or salicylic acid doesn’t work for you i think benzoyl peroxide is the next best thing and a lot of dermatologists actually like benzoyl peroxide more so it’s just a debate i personally like salicylic acid because i feel that salicylic acid can be paired alongside other ingredients and formulas to make sure it doesn’t like dry out your skin as opposed to most benzoyl peroxide products i’ve used like when i use it my skin definitely feels dry afterwards um but i think it’s awesome i think it’s great i think especially for anyone who’s sensitive to salicylic acid benzoyl peroxide is your next best bet okay so many questions okay gina says hey hiram just wanted to say you’ve inspired me to be an aesthetician in the future i start school this up to this september that’s amazing congratulations you know i love seeing those comments where you guys say like i was you know uh took part in partially inspiring you to you know um be an esthetician or a dermatologist and that makes me so happy because you’re going to become way more smarter than me there’s evidence right there that wasn’t even grammatically correct you’re going to be way more smart than me about skin care and that makes me so happy because the more education and hopefully the more i can inspire people to get even further education than me is incredible and you’re gonna be such a valuable resource to the skincare community um more so than me so i really really happy to hear that um anyway um also what are some great tips and products for rosacea much love thank you gina so when it comes to skin conditions like say rosacea keratosis polaris um you know even extreme eczema different things like that i am hesitant about recommending products because those are more dermatology um like dermatologist uh type of issues because those are conditions that are diagnosed by a dermatologist and you want and i i get nervous about recommending products because i don’t want to do anything to mess up your skin um and i’m more confident recommending like over the counter products um but usually for those type of issues uh prescription grade level products are best used or at least getting a diagnosis and recommendations from a dermatologist is best because they’ll be able to see your skin directly so i’m i’m always a little bit hesitant about recommending that but there are amazing dermatologists here on youtube dr dre being one of them um like uh why am i forgetting all the other dermatologists like i just watched dr dre the most there’s so many dr bunting there’s so many other dermatologists here on youtube that you can watch that talk about rosacea and how to like get rid of it and honestly i would trust their feedback way more than their opinion and their you know expertise way more so um than anything i could provide because i definitely like to be a resource for people who are just you know getting into skincare who need a little bit of direction rather than making recommendations for like pretty severe diagnoses if that’s if that makes sense so yeah i just recommend their videos it’s something that i’m learning about you know um yeah i hope that answers your question sorry that took a long time to answer wow i have oily skin i’m a teen and i started and just started frying at a burger place okay congratulations on the job my skin is bumpy and so oily how often should i cleanse any advice to help this is a really really good um question because i used to work way back when i was in college um in front of like a hot pans at a buffet um and i would get so sweaty so so so sweaty um so one thing that’s important i think it’s important that you definitely cleanse your skin well because um with the build-up of grease and oil and sebum that can actually you know easily block your pores especially being in around that like greasy environment um make sure you’re not overly stripping your cleanse with a cleanser so you don’t want to cleanse too harshly um one that i love for this is the la roche-posay purifying cleanser this one’s a great one of being able to deeply cleanse your skin without overly stripping it good for oily skin and you said your skin is bumpy as well so the skin bumps could be and you know i’m not 100 sure on this um it could be due to the over exposure of like moisture to your skin like if you are moisturizing and then on top of that there’s a bunch of sebum and you know being in the really hot environment it could be um you know little bumps due to that i made a video talking about like fungal acne and how it’s kind of caused to an overexposure of moisture so the nizoral shampoo is a great option for that um if you’re trying to get rid of those little bumps it could help with that i mean you can go watch my video about fungal acne like i said before i’m not dermatologist so i can’t diagnose fungal acne as it’s very difficult to diagnose but that could be one of the reasons why um and i’d say how often you should cleanse it’s just morning and night don’t cleanse any more than that or at least um like morning and then when you get off of your shift um so if you get off of your shift like you know in the evening time at least after dark just put on your nighttime skincare routine immediately after the longer your skin kind of sits in all of that um the more likely it is to break out and have those issues and as far as the moisturizer honestly that i would recommend the coconut water cream from first aid beauty it’s like the only moisturizer that like lasts through the humidity the sweat here in hawaii and i highly recommend it to anyone who has super oily skin okay let’s see um let’s see maria says hi i’ve had cystic acne since sixth grade now sophomore in college and tried almost everything venture dermatologist and on accutane any thoughts on something to get rid of this oh my gosh you know i wish i had the level of expertise to really help with this but when it comes to cystic acne it is such a tricky a really really tricky thing because cystic acne is one of those things that if you use the wrong product or the wrong ingredient it can actually like you know create a lot of pain within the skin like cystic acne can be very painful so i don’t i don’t have the level of expertise to be able to offer you advice on that and i’m so sorry i wish i did i mean maybe trying a different dermatologist if possible um seeing what alternatives they recommend because accutane doesn’t always work for everyone i’d say is a good option to go with um i’m sorry i wish i could help with everything but i think it’s important for me to recognize like where my limitations and you know recommendations and education is and that’s definitely one of them let’s see um oh how to oh i missed it how to reduce poor size or appearance so technically you cannot change the size of your pores that’s due to genetics in your environment but you can change like how visible and apparent they are and usually the trick for me is like salicylic acid and niacinamide niacinamide will help to reduce the sebum production within your skin which will mean less oil and sebum buildup and salicylic acid is going to clear out any of the dirt from pollution or the sebum buildup that accumulates throughout the day so like using salicylic acid at night and using niacinamide in the morning is a dream combo for just like reducing that problem and reducing you know visible pores at least in that area that’s what i always recommend uh how many times a week should you use salicylic acid or chemically exfoliate a week so at most every other day um in my opinion some like if you are really struggling with acne um for like a a small bit then you can use salicylic acid every day the only reason i hesitate to recommend that is because i really do think that your skin needs a break from exfoliation um you should be you know introducing gentle actives into your routine and really hammering your skin with a bunch with a bunch of treatments all at once can you know risk irritation and isn’t just best for the health of the skin so i think every other day alternating um and making sure that you’re really you know building up your moisture barrier and protecting your skin in between those exfoliating sessions is the best way to go so for me personally i rarely exfoliate every day the only times i have is like if my skin is really going through like a breakout and i just want to get rid of it um pretty quickly um that’s the only time i use it for like three or four days maximum and then i go back to a regular exfoliating routine but i think three times a week exfoliating is a great is a great option to go with let’s see um i oh i can’t read this sorry i think i i saw i i want to see your skin type video but i live in miami and it’s so humid so my skin is always changing which affects the products i should buy help me please love you thank you elizabeth yeah you know that’s a difficult one and honestly it does come down to just like your individual skin because everyone’s skin reacts differently in environments sometimes if you’re in a humid environment your skin can still be really dry but because it’s extra sweaty and the humidity level level is higher it looks like your skin is oily or sometimes your skin if you live in a really dry climate um sometimes your skin can look like it’s oily but it’s actually because it’s super dry and it’s trying to over and it’s over producing sebum in an effort to hydrate the skin so it’s super complicated um that’s why in my skin type videos i recommend like seeing how your skin responds just after like 30 minutes um and how that kind of like is a good cause to what your skin type is like but you know if your skincare routine isn’t working for you and say you’re like wait i thought i have oily skin um because you know my skin seems so oily try the opposite try using products say overnight that are really good for deep hydration and see how your skin responds um sometimes you know changing it up a little bit and testing um the alternative is a great way to tell like what your skin type is like let’s see um can i do a video on kiehl’s skincare i already did just look up truth about keels you can see all of my thoughts and opinions though let’s see um for some reason like the it’s kind of freezing on my phone i don’t know why let me look at my computer because okay there we go yeah the comments are coming in so fast on my computer um let’s see the best product for hyperpigmentation um so it really does depend on what type of hyperpigmentation you’re struggling with you can struggle with hyperpigmentation from the sun like dark spots and sunspots you can struggle with hyperpigmentation from acne scarring um it really does depend but i personally love retinol for hyperpigmentation retinol is a great ingredient just for any type of damage and it it works really well regardless of whether you’ve had you know sun spots or acne scarring um i think it’s just the best if your skin can handle it um besides that there’s also vitamin c um vitamin c i’m usually a little bit hesitant because it’s not like it’s not the most stable ingredient out there but it does work for brightening the skin and it’s a great antioxidant as well um as far as an individual product i mean retinol products that i love i think if you’re just starting into retinol the first press restart no first i don’t know the first retinol serum is a great one to go with that’s pretty affordable um there’s also the ordinary retinol serums as well those those can be a little bit strong so be careful about that um i love the first one though i think it’s a great like introductory retinal or where is it yes the in keyless retinol as well i think this is a good introductory retinol too because it’s 0.
5 retinol so i just think that’s the best one to go with um i figure like why not start with the best ingredient out there and the one that like has the most research attached to it okay um let’s see i’m trying to use niacinamide to help with my fungal acne but it’s making it worse oh no any tips yes so if any product out there that you’re starting to use and you’ve been using it say for like a month two months three months and you’re still not seeing results from it um or it’s sorry if it’s making your skin worse then i recommend just to cut it out of your routine that’s definitely like not a good thing a product should not be making your skin worse over a long period of time that being said i have talked to a lot of people to where they’re like this product is making my skin worse it’s not helping and they’ve been using it for like a week or two weeks and it’s like you need a little bit more time than that to really feel out the benefits of a product because there is a thing called purging um where you know your skin is basically trying to rid itself of excess sebum or excess dirt or you know all all these things have just built up over time um but niacinamide should be an ingredient that’s tolerated by most skin types like it’s there’s an extremely low risk of sensitivity but there are still people who are sensitive to niacinamide so if you are seeing that your skin is not liking it over a long period of time just cut nice and mine out of your routine um there’s no reason for you to use it if it’s going to be making your skincare worse um now for fungal acne i honestly recommend the nice oral shampoo i’ve talked about it before it’s just a great ingredient because it uses a specific ingredient found in like anti-dandruff shampoos that works amazingly for fungal acne there’s also a chance however that your acne that you’re struggling with may not be fungal acne it could be an allergic you know reaction the little bumps on your skin can sometimes be the sign of like a skin allergy which means you want to scale back the products you’re using be really you know intentional careful about what you’re using you know there’s like so many different things that could be at play i think the important thing is like experimenting and seeing you know what will work best with your skin but just overall for i’ve seen so many people mess with me they’re like you know like it’s so sad because they’ll say like you know you said this product will work really well but it’s making my skin break out like crazy i’m like oh girl stop using it like immediately stop like there’s no need for you to be using like a product that’s just gonna make your skin worse you know um let’s see oh man my phone is like lagging i don’t know why um let’s see sorry y’all trying to make sure i don’t know if there’s just like so many comments or like what’s going on but it’s it’s intense oh no okay it’s freezing up um let’s see what’s your opinion on neutrogena oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen so i love their oil-free moisturizer for combination skin um that one is was one of my like best drugstore moisturizers it’s really simple it’s really basic but it’s good um with sunscreen i mean neutrogena typically uses a lot of like chemical uv filters at least in their like moisturizer series so i wouldn’t recommend it because i’m not a fan of you know chemical uv filters i’m more of a fan of mineral uv filters um so you know that’s my my opinion on that um but as far as the moisturizers themselves they’re good i here’s the thing i usually don’t recommend a moisturizer with a sunscreen because you need to be using a lot of sunscreen like to be exact you should be using like a tablespoon worth of sunscreen every single day and realistically you’re not going to be using that much moisturizer so you’re going to be getting a lot less sunscreen protection than you should be and you really don’t want to miss out on that sun protection benefit so it’s important that you use a moisturizer and then follow up with the sunscreen afterwards in my opinion so you can get the best results possible from a sunscreen instead of using a moisturizer with a sunscreen in it and only getting like an spf of 10 or something like that dark underarms yes um chemical exfoliants like glycolic acid um is a great way to get rid of that i talked about the cosis deodorant that i love because it’s formulated with chemical exfoliants that help to get rid of that darkness and also help to get rid of like smelly armpits but um you can also use the ordinary glycolic acid toner that one’s great um lab muffin beauty science recommended that one it’s awesome um it was sensitive for my face but um you can definitely use it for your underarm area um yeah just any type of chemical exfoliant will really help to get rid of that darkness on your under arm area just make sure you’re not using it too too frequently when you start because it could cause sensitivity if your skin’s not used to it but other otherwise go ham you know derma rolling not a fan not a fan at all derma rolling like any type of purposefully wounding your skin making your skin essentially bleed poking holes in it all that kind of stuff i think should be done by an aesthetician or a dermatologist only um i don’t know i’m just not comfortable with the idea of derma rolling i actually was sent one and i have yet to use it and i was sent it like six months ago and i’m just like i i i don’t know i’m nervous about using it um just because i do think it should be done by a professional only and i think it’s also due to the way that people use derma rolling like if it was very like very precise and extremely gentle and very slow and very careful maybe i’d be more behind it but people just like they do like roll it like crazy and that’s what freaks me out because i’m just like oh my god you are literally wounding your skin and if you’re not careful and also not careful about the products that you use afterwards it can cause like scarring and long-term issues and there’s actually been some recent evidence in a study showing that like derma rolling could actually contribute to like worse skin so i don’t know i’m just not a fan of it i think you should be really careful and you guys know i’m also i’m all about gentle actives being careful with your skin making sure your skin is not sensitive and derma rolling i think is just on the fast lane to skin irritation hi beautiful hi morgan what are your thoughts on kate somerville’s exfolikate cleanser um will be good for oily acne prone skin with pores and blackheads hope you’re having an amazing day thank you so um you know some products from uh keith somerville i absolutely love i’ve talked about them before in multiple videos um their exfoliate cleanser is it’s okay it does have like if i remember right citrus essential oils and citrus extracts which can be irritating to the skin and particularly when you’re struggling with acne i’m a little hesitant about that the reason why i’m hesitant about recommending that one as well is because i don’t believe that you should be using an active cleanser every single day like i think you should be using a gentle cleanser and then using an active cleanser like at most three or four times a week when you’re using an active cleanser every single day like i was saying before that’s essentially exfoliating your skin every single day and you want to be careful about that particularly when you have acne sensitive prone skin um but it’s not the worst i mean thankfully all the you know potentially irritating ingredients are in a wash off treatment so you know you’re not leaving it on your skin for a long time so you don’t have to worry about that um but yeah it’s like it’s okay my 10 year old has blackheads on his nose good products that aren’t too harsh he’s already using cerave moisturizing lesson and hydrating cleanser every day that’s awesome but i will say the hydrating cleanser is good for people with dry skin i wouldn’t recommend it for someone who’s struggling with blackheads because blackheads are typically a sign of like over overproduction of sebum or somewhat more oily skin um at least on that area i would say going in with a salicylic acid cleanser like if you can’t find the cerave one the in keyless one if i can find it oh yeah yeah this one right here thank you salsa like acid cleanser um it’s a good alternative as well that you can use in that area or you can use a leave on salicylic acid product like the paul’s choice two percent bha love that one um i just think the hydrating cleanser i think is a great product from crv i personally don’t like it because i felt like i did nothing for my skin but the ingredients are bomb um so that’s what i recommend hopefully that helped um is using the lactic acid five percent as an exfoliant good from the ordinary i use it three times a week and i have rosacea i love you thank you phoebe love you too i say yes i love that serum i recommend it all the time um with rosacea you might want to be careful um you know about what you use about the actives but three times a week and lactic acid is one of the most gentle exfoliants out there i’d say if you want an alternative like pha like the ph toner from the inky list polyhydroxy acids are good for like dry skin um dry sensitive skin um but i’d say you know it’s it’s you’re using a very gentle exfoliant and you’re not using it like crazy frequently so i don’t necessarily see a problem with that i i love that serum personally let’s see mccullen says you’ve gotten me back into skincare after 10 years of post accutane arrogant non-face washing thanks toxic masculinity oh my gosh but how do i know what’s purging and what upset skin of all these products are new well i’m so happy i could get you back into skincare that makes me so happy to hear um i’d say you know purging i need to make it i keep forgetting i need to make a video about this but i say purging does not usually last longer than two weeks um if you are seeing and it depends on like what you’re seeing purging will typically look like you know for a day or two um you’ll have you know what looks to be like a breakout um and then it’ll pretty rapidly go away um you know because purging is essentially just kind of getting rid of you know those the excess you know sebum oil buildup and i don’t like the word toxins but basically things have built up in your skin that just need to be ejected um that’s what purging kind of addresses but purging doesn’t usually last longer than two weeks and if you’re seeing a lot of little bumps all over your face that’s usually a sign of allergy or skin irritation not purging um purging more so usually looks like breakouts or you know different things like that um diets uh if you are for example i i my opinion is that purging does not occur as frequently or it’s not as common when it’s a product that you’ve already used before or it’s like say just like a hydrating cleanser if you’re using a hydrating cleansing or purging that’s kind of weird because usually purging will occur with like exfoliation or retinol or some type of treatment ingredient that’s changing you know how your skin is operating that’s more so usually what causes purging if you’re just using like a hydrogen cleanser or a standard moisturizer and your skin starts purging i’d say that’s more likely skin irritation but i also think this is the importance of making sure that you’re not using a ton of products all at once and introducing them into your routine introduce them incrementally like start with one product and then after a week or two add another product and so on and so forth so that you aren’t you know using a ton of products all at once your skin is irritated and you don’t know which product is causing it um so hopefully that helps it’s a really complicated topic because everyone’s skin is different and everyone experiences purging differently so it’s kind of complex but i hope that helped is uh nivea nevaeh nivea nivea is nivea good um it’s okay you know i think they have a few products that are like fragrance free but they have a lot of fragrance from what i can remember so it’s like you know me um very cheap though very affordable which is nice what’s my opinion of proactiv yeah they’re okay you know i wouldn’t have such a huge problem with their products if so many people hadn’t have told me that like proactive just really fucked up their skin and when i heard that i’m just like um like that kind of turns me off to altogether i mean i think their formulas have definitely improved since like a long time ago um when they were just like crazy strong now their formulas are a little bit more balanced but still i wouldn’t recommend them opinion on differin i think different is great i think it’s an amazing ingredient um an amazing starter retinoid however my skin freaked the hell out when i started using it and so i can’t really tolerate it um i i might try again but honestly the experience was kind of traumatic that i’m just like i don’t know if i want to do that again um but i think it’s a great ingredient that a lot of people can take advantage of i bought the ordinary nice cinnamon serum what’s good with niacinamide literally anything niacinamide is an ingredient that works so well with like any type of ingredient out there and i know a lot of people are like you can’t make science cinnamon with vitamin c or this or this or this i i mean i’ve seen so many chemists and dermatologists talk about how like all these mixing myths and how a lot of them are just myths and you can actually mix a lot of active ingredients together and niacinamide is just one of those ingredients that’s so well tolerated by so many like different skin types and specifically for sensitive skin that i just recommend it to everyone um chicken skin on arms keratosis polaris what helps you are amazing your advice has changed my life oh thank you um so usually like a good scrub on the back of your arms can help with that i hesitate to make recommendations for keratosis pilaris on the face but on the body um like on the back of the arms which i sometimes struggle with um like using a scrub or like a glycolic acid type of product usually helps to kind of clear that up um there’s a bunch of brands like a drugstore level that have products that address that cerave has some good exfoliating ones as well so there’s options out there but that’s usually like what it takes to get rid of you know base level uh kp hi hiring big fan from india i used to feel very insecure about my acne but after watching and learning from you i felt like i know my skin now oh okay that makes me happy you know that’s that’s the biggest thing for me is not my channel i never want it to be about like telling you what to do when you need to buy this and you shouldn’t buy this it is you know me recommend making recommendations based off of you know my skincare philosophy but what i want is for you guys to walk away from my videos more educated so that you can make your own decisions figure out your own skin and figure out what works for you and develop your own philosophy that’s what i want my channel to be about um and i’m so happy to see when that is able to happen so i’m happy for you thank you for telling me that i’m getting my wife into skincare she’s using a gentle cleanser and the inkless peptide cream she’s a healthcare worker so acne is an issue what treatment serum should she add oh okay so the peptide cream is good um that can really help to make sure her moisture barrier is you know protected because that’s the biggest thing like as a healthcare worker right now with the mask and everything it’s usually not about using a treatment ingredient it’s just upping that moisture as much as possible so i’d say um that one is good you may want to use an even more hydrating like occlusive cream so something like the cerave moisturizing cream for example um because in that environment specifically like within the mask it’s so devoid of moisture um that it can you know that’s usually what causes the acne um so and you can watch my video about like the best like how to take care of your skin what’s the title face my face mask video you can go watch that i did it a few days ago um but i think using a gentle cleanser is also good as well um and yeah and then also making sure to use sunscreen um whenever she’s you know outside i’d say is the best treatments i hesitate to recommend treatments for you know um acne that’s caused by masks i just recommend you go check out that video but thank you for getting your wife into skincare the more people we bring into the skincare world the better let’s see hi hiram should we apply the products based off on the ph level or consistency i have the bha toner and a vitamin c serum and i read that vitamin c should go first but serums have a thicker consistency so here’s the thing when it comes to ph um a lot of you know people are like pushing for like products to disclose their ph and talk about all this like science you know and like what to you know how to mix things and everything and here’s the thing chemists who develop the products are doing so with the understanding and the knowledge of ph so for you to kind of play scientists i think is is risky unless you’re very well educated and you know like that’s your job um because these products are developed with a specific ph in mind and so i’m not a fan of the whole like approaching skincare based off of ph just because i i just the the whole reason pseudoscience has become such a huge thing is because people kind of reading for example scientific papers without a proper education and understanding of how to read a scientific paper of people you know analyzing ph and thinking that they’re you know they should play scientists and chemists um when the products were developed typically with a specific ph in mind um and the chemists kind of knowing what they’re doing so i’m so trusting the chemists that develop the formulas um but i will say like i recommend typically a bha serum first because of from a molecular size bha is the smallest it goes deepest into the poor um so i recommend applying that first but to be honest there’s more evidence coming out about like how the effectiveness of ingredients it doesn’t really depend on like when you’re applying them in your routine so long as you know you’re finishing up with a moisturizer and a sunscreen i’m like you can you can apply it however in whatever way you want but i do recommend being careful about mixing actives um because that can you know be a potential risk for sensitivity so loaded question loaded response i hope that helps i’m going in with the responses today like i’m making them super detailed sorry i hope it’s educational at the very least which is the best cleanser for oily skin i just started my skincare routine and i’m only using seatable cleanser and craving moisturizing cream okay so the laroche rain purifying cleanser i love for oily skin i think one this one is a great option um because it won’t like overly strip the skin but it does really help with that excess oiliness um what else i’m trying to think of the ones like right around me oh duh the cerave foaming cleanser as well super good um this one as opposed to the salicylic acid one this one doesn’t have salicylic acid so it’s like great to use every single day um those are my honestly my favorite drugstore cleansers for oily skin if you want to learn more about like drugstore level because it seems like you like drugstore because cetaphil and cerave um i would say go watch my best drugstore cleanser video because i go into detail there based off of what the best ones are for skin type claire says hi hiram it’s my birthday turning 15.
hey happy birthday and i love your videos thank you what do you think of clarisonic well you know to be honest it probably doesn’t matter what we think because they’re going out of business um they’re not going to be around anymore um you know clarisonic i used to love but now in hindsight i’m kind of like uh not a big fan of clarisonic because i feel like they’re cleansing devices can be really really harsh on the skin um and i used to use one every day which i regret doing because i’m just like whoa girl that’s like way too harsh on the skin um i personally like cleansing devices like foreo more it really ensures that you’re not like damaging your skin barrier at all whereas with clarisonic it’s so harsh that you really just don’t know um so it’s kind of iffy if you are gonna use it like use it once a week i think it’s fine and use the most like gentle brush cleansing head um but yeah just be careful about that let’s see i’m 18 and i already have a lot of fine lines smile lines under eye and forehead what can i do to fade them so this is a great question because when i was 18 i also had the same problem i had a lot of wrinkles um that would just not go away to the point that people were coming out it’s funny because i’ve talked about that before and people online have been like oh i’m sure your wrinkles weren’t bad and i’m like girl people were literally coming up to me and saying that i should like start using moisturizers and creams my friends were like telling me that that’s how bad it was so i did kind of struggle with fine lines before and even when i look at old pictures i’m just like oh my gosh hiram you look like 10 years older than you actually were um one thing that has really helped i made a video talking about how i got rid of all of my fine lines in aging and you can go watch that one one thing that really helped is kind of controlling your expression typically the reason why people that young are struggling with fine lines is because of like overuse of facial muscles facial muscles so before i would constantly be like creasing my forehead all the time and there’s really no need to do that for me i believe that you know smile lines aren’t bad i think smile lines reflect like show how happy you’ve been in your life and stuff like that i love smile lines but unnecessary lines like in the forehead uh they annoy me so much because i’m just like there’s no need for them like there’s no need to have wrinkles there um and so i learned how to kind of control my forehead muscles to not move them as much so that’s a big thing um sunscreen huge one just use a ton of sunscreen and retinol honestly retinol and exfoliation were the things that really helped me to get rid of my fine lines specifically exfoliation first like using a chemical exfoliant really helps with that and then afterwards using a retinol has really helped kept those fine lines at bay um because i’m still trying to prevent them as long as possible um and that’s the thing i think it should be you know about prevention but you know if they come at some point it’s okay you know it’s fine um that’s just the way our skin works at some point we’re gonna get wrinkles and that’s totally okay um but i hope those help to go watch my video about how i got rid of my fine lines um because i go into detail there let’s see oh man the comments come in so fast i know someone said this chat is crazy too fast i know i’m sorry i’ve tried switching on um like the slower chat before to where it like regulates how quickly they come in it literally does nothing um they still come in like the same speed it’s just craziness all the time um what do i think about ollie henriksen um i did a video on them you can go watch wait i did right oh now i’m second guessing myself uh okay i did i did because one time before like i made a video and i was like someone had asked about ollie anderson and i was like oh yeah you can like go watch my video about willie henderson and then i went and i looked and i was like wait i haven’t done one and i was like so shook so i have done one go watch my video there oh any indigenous owned brands you like also what are your thoughts on uh deviant skincare they’re fragrance free supported uh um black lives center but expensive so i have started a conversation with i believe the founder of debbie on skincare i haven’t tried this skincare yet but i really want to um indigenous owned brands you know it is so difficult let me know if you guys know of any because here’s the thing i want to support small skincare brands so much like small um like black owned um which i do have a video about black on skincare brands that you can go watch indigenous owned brands would be amazing but the problem is that they formulate with so many essential oils like literally all of them every single small skincare brand that i try to discover and want to support they use so many essential oils and it just drives me crazy so you know there is a brand called mamalani body care and their underarm deodorant amazing love i’ve used it for years one of my favorites and she’s a you know native hawaiian native hawaiian own brand incredible but besides that let me know if you guys do know of any that are essential oil free because i’ve kind of given up at this point because every single brand like i want to support local hawaiian brands so badly but they all have just tons of essential oils so yeah i haven’t found anything quite yet hi hiram i love watching you so much thank you um i’ve been getting my boyfriend into skincare awesome um and i got him the cerave foaming facial cleanser and the moisturizer what else should i recommend to him definitely a sunscreen um sunscreen is what you really want to do because that’s you know the most important part of the skincare routine if he’s hesitant about sunscreen because you know sunscreen isn’t exactly the most fun step a lot of times get a korean sunscreen like the um dear claire soft uv air essence amazing or the purito centella unscented spf so good you can go watch my video about the best sunscreens out there but if you get him a korean sunscreen i guarantee he’s going to apply um sunscreen more than if you get him like a lot of drugstore sunscreens because they tend to be less of a pleasant experience um depending on the type of sunscreen but that’s definitely what i recommend um next in the skincare routine for him let’s see what are your thoughts on aloe vera gel i think it’s great i love it when it’s formulated in um a product but all of like after sun aloe vera gel is be careful about which ones you use i love the target one um the unscented non-dye one because some of them out there say that they’re an aloe vera gel and the second ingredient is denatured alcohol which makes me so mad because i’m just like why would you apply a stripping ingredient like donate your alcohol to sunburned skin like just terrible idea so be careful about which one you use let’s see owen says hey hiram love your channel and you help me understand skincare so much thank you i value your opinion very much what are your thoughts on average aglow oh to be honest so i’ve heard of that brand i’m basically familiar with them but i don’t know the ingredient list well enough i’m gonna have to look into that um if i remember right they formulate with fragrance i can’t remember though um and automatically when i brown formulates the fragrance i’m obviously like a little bit more skeptical less hesitant to jump on the love train for a brand um but i’m gonna have to look into the formulas because i’m really not 100 sure let’s see what to use for textured skin definitely chemical exfoliants chemical explains will really help to get rid of that texture specifically the glycolic acid but any of them will work well it’s just a matter of like how strong you want them to be and how quickly you want to get rid of the problem and what your skin can handle but definitely glycolic acid will help with that carly says is toner necessary for a skincare routine no it is not toner is not necessary i always talk about this um i don’t think toner is bad i think toner is fine and if you want to use a toner that’s totally fine but people like to make it seem like toner is one of the most important start steps of the skincare routine and here’s the thing 20 years ago it was um because cleansers were too harsh the ph um was just too much for the skin to regulate its moisture and the toner would help to reset the ph of your skin to make sure it was level but nowadays cleansers are so gentle and um you know ph friendly for the skin that they don’t do that and typically brands will just sell you a toner to get some more money out of you but if you really like a toner and you have one you love that’s great i’ve used toner before it’s just not necessary to a routine what are your thoughts on apple cider vinegar using straight apple cider vinegar on the skin no definitely no i i think it can you know be an astringent i think it can be stripping um overly acidic and cause sensitivity um but in a product i don’t have a problem with it so long as it’s you know formulated and like in a good way but i don’t have a problem with it thoughts on pacifica you know i found i think one product from pacifica that was okay but i think like pretty much all their products have fragrance so for that reason i’m not crazy about pacifica hi harm do you know why the cerave hydrating cleanser breaks people out um oh okay so i didn’t realize it broke a lot of people out here’s the thing when it comes to any skincare product and i’ve had some people get really mad at me because they’re just like how dare you like you recommended this product and it broke me out and i’m like i’m sorry but like everyone responds differently to skincare and sometimes skincare products just aren’t going to work for you there there’s products that some other people have loved that have broke me out um you just have to recognize that you know everyone’s skin is different so everyone’s going to respond differently and you may be sensitive to something that i recommend i mean in that case you know i recommend using a different cleanser finding an alternative option i constantly talk about alternative products to cerave on my channel i talk about so many other brands so you can do my drugstore series there’s a lot out there that you have um but yeah you know it sucks i i feel bad when it does break people out but you know um i just recommend an alternative so an alternative to like the cerebri hydrating cleanser the la roche posay hydrating cleanser amazing i personally like that one more than the cerave one for the experience um you can watch go watch my drugstore cleanser videos i offer alternatives there um but yeah just just fyi in case something i recommend did break you out i promise i’m not out to get you i promise i’m not lying to you it’s just because everyone’s skin reacts differently to things and sometimes people are going to have sensitivities hey hiram i have texture skin on my forehead and i want to try a chemical exfoliator but i also take acne medication which increases the rate at which my skin cells um fall off what would you suggest so i would suggest talking to your medical professional about that like your dermatologist because if you’re taking acne medication that means you have access to a dermatologist i’d recommend asking them if you know what chemical exfoliants are best um typically i wouldn’t recommend a strong one like at all because you want to be really careful but it just depends on how strong your acne medication is um because i wouldn’t want to recommend something that pushes your skin over the edge but in terms of what’s most gentle polyhydroxy acids phase like the pha toner from the inky list or lactic acid or mandelic acid um the wishtrend mandelic acid the ordinary lactic acid are very gentle um chemical exfoliants that are less likely to irritate your skin but again check with your dermatologist well my throat is dry there we go um my throat is so dry okay hey hiram what is your opinion on kodzali specifically grape water and beauty elixir love your videos thank you so causally you know they’re very expensive and i will not lie their dark spot correcting serum is so good i love that product it works really well but you know a lot of their products are formulated with fragrance and because they have grape water um their grape water spray i mean i’ll just be honest facial mist in general i’m typically hesitant about unless they’re really innovative and when i see them charging like what like 20 bucks for a grape water spray i’m like like that is so expensive and for me i’m like if it’s just water like splash water on your face after using like a hyaluronic acid serum or something like that that’ll give you just as much moisture um or just use a hydrating serum because the reality is like it’s in a can that’s not able to be recycled and actually bad for the planet and so if it’s just water and it’s really not offering any additional benefits on that it’s really just not great for the environment so that’s my opinion on that um the rest of their products they they typically formulate with a lot of fragrance and they’re very expensive so they’re not my go-to recommendation at all um but the dark spot serum is is pretty dang good it does have fragrance but i only use it in spots and it works really well i stopped using curology and my skin is angry again oh no i want to find um ingredients products that were in my prescription zinc niacinamide any suggestions and tips ooh so you know i honestly recommend like um just taking the ingredients that you found within your product and searching them online and finding like good like fragrance-free formulations uh that you can you know use it’s really just gonna come down to you because like what price point you want what type of product you want um i wish i could say like oh just use this as this this um but but it’s difficult because i i don’t know your exact formula so i’d recommend just searching the products based off of the ingredients that were in um in that product um but i mean curology i don’t think curology is bad so if your skin is really angry when you stop using it it’s okay if you use curology for a while i i think they’re a great company i think they’re they have awesome formulations so i don’t think it’s terrible bruno says hiram what’s your favorite exfoliating product from the ordinary also do you like the ordinary cleanser thank you for the question i appreciate it and let me get some water so my favorite exfoliating product from ordinary is probably the lactic acid 10 serum or the lactic acid 5 serum i think they’re great they’re so lightweight or i also will say of course the ordinary aha um exfoliating mask the red blood one it’s so good i mean it’s really strong and um not everyone can handle it but i love that one um for like once every two weeks you know maybe once a month i love using it um but yeah i’d probably say those are my favorite exfoliating products i want to love the glycolic toning solution but that one did not like my skin or my skin did not like that one it was way too harsh um the ordinary cleanser i’m gonna have to try it more my experiences in the past were not great with it um and a lot of other people i know actually don’t like it as well they just felt like it didn’t really cleanse their skin and for me i need a cleanser that’s like really strong that’s really gonna get through all the excess oil and sebum that builds up on my skin every single day so i’m not a fan but i’m gonna have to try it again to let you know like what all of my thoughts are i just scratch my face on accident let’s see okay mature skin recommendations for mature skin i saw a few questions about that um so definitely retinol um i think retinol is a great ingredient um if but that’s only if like someone has been used to a skincare routine for a while if they’re if they haven’t used skincare before be careful about introducing a retinol um you know work your way up to that level but just definitely focus on a lot of moisture mature skin tends to be really dehydrated so any product that has a really thick heavy emollient consistency very hydrating um is really good to use but also just retinol um i’m just like for me i’m like you know if you are wanting to tackle something like aging you may as well use the best and strongest ingredient out there which is retinol um so that’s what i recommend like what i said before great starter retinol is the inky list retinol or reversed retinol and then you can work your way up in strength from there but i definitely say for mature skin those are really good you know options to go with i have fungal acne been using nizoral mask for a few days now and it’s working oh my gosh that’s amazing for a few days wow so usually nizoral will take like two weeks to a month to work so that’s amazing i’m happy for you my skin has been getting really dry though recently should i moisturize okay yes um if your skin has been you know getting pretty dry which you know is typical if you are going to be tackling something like fungal acne because fungal acne shows up because your skin is over moisturized essentially so i think it is good to use a moisturizer but don’t use a crazy heavy one if your skin is feeling dry obviously moisturize it but recognize that maybe it’s not best for your skin to be like super greased up you know some people like to be like really uh like grease lubed up like their face is like super like wet and shiny um if you’re struggling with fungal acne that’s probably not the best route to go just use a moisturizer that’s a moisturizer that’s going to hydrate but not you know potentially overly hydrate so you don’t create the issue that you’re trying to avoid in the first place serums before or after moisturizer i have dry skin so what serums do you recommend i’m hopelessly lost thank you camila um so i’d say before moisturizer um most the time because the active ingredients you want them to you know basically best be delivered into the skin possible and if it has to get through your moisturizer it can be a little bit more difficult however the exception to this is retinol if you’re starting retinol or your skin is sensitive to retinol i actually think it’s better to apply it after a moisturizer because it’s not going to penetrate your skin quite as deeply or it’s less likely to so you’re not going to see as much irritation but besides that i always apply my serums before my moisturizer i never apply after moisturizer just because i want them to work as best as possible let’s see what it what are your opinions on the brand bliss i love their clear genius peel love that one um i think it’s a great product and a great alternative to like the ordinary aha mask um because it’s it’s not as strong but you’re still going to be getting the good peel benefit and it has poly hydroxy acid which is amazing i love that product from them also they’re um the orange eye cream the brightening eye cream is also really good too fragrance free formula um so a lot of the products from bliss have fragrance but i do like those products for sure thoughts on olay um i love their hungarian water essence cream and they do have some recent new fragrance free products that i want to check out but um do i have it right here yes hungarian water essence from ole i think it’s like their best moisturizer really really good formula let’s see aloha from uh czech republic that’s amazing all the way from check um after a great go to bed routine including my cinematic retinol there you go i wake up with whiteheads around my smile lines every morning once a week i use ordinary red mask any suggestions so whiteheads are typically due to like overproduction of sebum so it’s either that you’re using too many moisturizing products or it could be that you know the retinol is kind of stripping your skin alongside niacinamide and your skin is trying to over produce for that i’d say make sure you’re first going in with a good moisturizer but if you are using a really thick heavy moisturizer out of out after all this or you’re using a lot of products that have a lot of hydrating agents maybe like scale it back a little bit and try something that’s not quite as hydrating um just so that your skin isn’t you know like creating those whiteheads as a response to that but i’d say it’s just a balance just make sure you’re getting you know enough hydration but not too much um but retinol does have a reputation for drying out skin so it could be due to that as well um but as long as those whiteheads don’t stay for too long i don’t think it’s problematic like if you’re getting whiteheads throughout the day then definitely but at nighttime um you know it’s not the end of the world so i wouldn’t say it’s anything to be super super super worried about um but that’s what i would recommend i hope that helped okay hey i’m struggling with hormonal acne around my jawline and also some big pimples randomly appearing on my feed please help love you by the way thank you hannah so hormonal acne oh that’s a difficult one that is a really really difficult one and especially me as a man who doesn’t have to struggle with that thankfully thank god i don’t have to struggle with that i feel so bad for everyone who does it’s really tricky and honestly hormonal acne is just so different for everyone and it sometimes skincare products just don’t work unfortunately for hormonal acne i’d say just making sure you’re going in with good treatments when you do struggle with hormonal acne and seeing what works best so you don’t like exfoliant salicylic acid but at the same time don’t overdo it it can be really strong um and you know um just be careful uh you don’t want to you know expose yours into too many treatments and push it over the edge but um also recognize that sometimes hormonal acne unfortunately can’t really be treated and sometimes you should go to a dermatologist to see what they recommend because they have good recommendations for hormonal acne also i’m sure dermatologists here on youtube have made a lot of videos about it i know for a fact they have i’ve watched them in the past um so you can you know go watch this as well uh hi i’m discovered i’m allergic to propylene glycol after months using products on it i’m on steroids to help recover but you inspired me to help take care of of my skin more oh that’s awesome probably in glycol you know that’s in a lot of products so i’m sorry that you’re allergic to that but i’m so happy that you’ve been discovering um you know what’s been working for your skin and also that you know what’s causing that skin allergy that’s more so than what a lot of people can say sometimes people go their whole life not realizing that they’re allergic to specific ingredients so that’s amazing um but yes probably glycol i mean it’s not like propylene glycol isn’t even like necessarily an incredible ingredient um you know so you’re not missing out much by form formulations without it but i’m so glad to hear that you you know figure that out um christina says hi hiram love you so are you not using curology anymore oh no i still use curology i still use their treatment um from time to time i’m not a super consistent user because um prescription level retinoid um i don’t um i i i don’t feel the need to use it like super super consistently but i do definitely use it like at least once every two weeks once every week um so i i really like curology and i actually was using it for a good round um for like about a month where i was using it super consistently and now i just use it like periodically um just because i do you know like prescription grade retinol but i don’t feel the need to use it super super consistently and then sometimes you use their moisturizer too i definitely still use curology should i absolutely stay away from something um as pregnant thoughts on wishful honey balm thank you i’m not familiar with the wishful honey balm um i didn’t know that that sounds like a new product i’m not sure um but when you’re pregnant yes you should stay away from retinol you should stay away from salicylic acid and you should stay away from fragrant essential oils um the reason why salicylic acid and retinol from a molecular size are able to be absorbed by the skin potentially into the bloodstream which sounds scary there’s a lot of like fear-mongering around that you can go listen to chemists and dermatologists about that um but for that reason it’s not recommended that you use them while you’re pregnant also fragrant essential oils can up sensitivity and sometimes just essential oils in general can be really risky um for the skin for the skin’s health so you don’t want to push your skin over the edge but besides that i believe pretty much everything else is good those are just the big ones to like stay away from okay we’re almost finished with the live i want you guys to ask me some i always like to finish up my lives by just asking like random questions like i don’t know favorite music favorite movies random things not about skincare because we focus so much for an hour on skincare questions now i think we should get into fun questions um just to finish up the live stream let’s see what you guys got thank you for all the questions about skincare though i love answering them but sometimes after an

enrique iglesias oh that’s just a classic i love love love um that favorite eye color oh interesting i love brown eyes i think they’re just so beautiful i think brown eyes are just i don’t know i

look like warm and like like they just like you know bring you in well i feel like blue eyes are a little bit more cold but i don’t really care to be honest do you like black pink um of course i

christopher nolan about the dreams inception yes i love inception what’s my favorite movie genre anything that either makes me really think like those movies where you have to pay so close attention

me to like change the world be a better person those are my favorites favorite color ocean blue any type of ocean blue i mean can you tell with my shirts i love blue but specifically ocean blue i just

case anyone was wondering do i have tattoos yes i do just this one but i want to get more if i had another like if i had another life i would get sleeves just so many tattoos all over my body i love

few years and then get rid of them oh my god i’d have so many tattoos but yeah i can’t unfortunately it’s forever what harry potter houses am i in i’m slytherin which i definitely think is accurate

really care i think it’s cool i i think it’s fun but i i get annoyed when people are like i would never date a you know random sign or whatever that always annoys me it’s my birthday in three hours oh

sitting there like is he even real beautiful do i like to titanic yes i cry so hard titanic is one of those movies that i almost consider to be like sacred and i can only watch like a certain amount of times because i like treasure the experience i love titanic let’s see do i like shopping yes but i don’t buy much i love like going into stores and looking at things but i usually walk away buying nothing because i’m super like picky with my money um i i don’t like to spend very much so um but i love the experience of like being in a store so customer service workers probably hate me because
