Skincare Q & A
hello folks oh trying to get myself comfy how are you this is so weird oh wow okay i have to look over here to see the thing but the camera’s over here sorry hello caroline’s forehead can you not see me surely you can see me now hello um yeah i have to look on this side to read the comments i’m sorry it makes it look like i’m i should be looking should be looking here hi how are you hello julian audio out of sync fantastic james black is that my james black how are you i watched you on tv while i cleaned just came from instagram oh hello um i think you can see the comments running up the thing so i will just sit quietly and answer any they’ll come uh three lives in a day i know a bit knackered i mean think oh good thank you kate i feel weird having to look over there though look at that let’s cover that up shall we landscape you can slow the comments down if you want online to count i don’t know how you do anything so i’m just going to answer comments um but there isn’t any which isn’t helpful can you use jordan samuel retinol over a plus yes you can best product for hormonal spots well renee’s is no there’s no outfit change i’m still in my tonya mother tucker uh renee’s anti-bump is brilliant for that uh i love my book thank you um fix your body’s good oh good gentle toner for the morning for dry dehydrated late 20s gentle toner well do you want acid or do you want let me go down back slow down do you want acid or do you want like a proper toner that’s the question um i need to know budget vitamin c the ordinary broke you out budget vitamin c tried the inky list they might be similar though it might just be the type of vitamin c uh you’d like an acid toner oh an acid toner well then they’re like bob bob’s your uncle you can pick as many as you possibly can um acid toner well again it depends on your budget so i would say look at uh pixie um you looked quite young so pixie or also it depends on where you live there’s lots um and there’s 4 000 on the blog josh rosebrook deviant if you live in the uk um the quality is really good oh good good um vitamin c and zealand’s d together yep uh product heroes for fungal acne okay first of all fungal acne does not exist it’s not it’s not a thing um it is actually a form of folliculitis that you get when you are uh really common in young men so max has it a little bit forehead and it’s a mixture of yeast on the skin sweat and kind of oil and everything mixed in so you need the shampoo called nice miso niall n-i-c-o-r-a-l and you wash your forehead with it not just your uh hair why am i being so um so nice oral but yeah fungal acne is not a thing it’s a made up term if you look in any kind of medical dictionary it doesn’t exist um do i agree with hiram that fragrance and skincare is bad no i don’t uh do you know any moisturizers that are non-non-comodogenic well most moisturizers are non-commodogenic it depends what you’re looking for and it depends on your skin type i feel like i should talk to you here um so if you’re worried about spot if you’re worried about getting sort of having breakouts just avoid things like really heavy shea butter at the top of the inky list um but yeah okay wait thoughts on agenda skincare uh i won’t use because the owner is really problematic for me really problematic for me she’s aggressive to people that i respect she is a massive conspiracy theorist i don’t even mind that she votes for trump it’s the other stuff it’s the other stuff that’s problematic for me um does skin get melasma my complexion is dark my body yes of course you can get uh melasma but probably uh hyperpigmentation um make sure you’re using high spf and uh some products can trigger it but it’s not that uh commonly done triggered by product there’s also a section of it in my book what barbara stern products would you recommend none i think they’re very expensive for what they are just my humble opinion that i am entitled to legally as i keep saying um sebaceous hypoplasia dermal or facialist um probably dumb always best if you can go down the derm road for something that’s actually a skin condition um and then you see what they say these comments are coming thick and fast oh my god yes i’ll save five don’t worry uh what should you do for under the skin bumps it depends on what they’re from if they are from hormones and they’re here that thing around here then yeah you keep telling me i can slow down the chat i don’t know how to slow down the chat please tell me how but this is cracking me up there’s like look filters oh my god look oh black and white that’s quite sexy look at that oh oh my god look there’s not a mark on my face i’ve just been on otherwise people think i’m trying to use a filter i’m not um is it fine to moisturize with just a face oh yes but bear in mind you’re only adding oil to the skin you are not adding water to the skin and a lot of people just need a bit of water hydration not oil loves that filter i know i might do like another one all the time uh what’s the difference between a hydrator and a moisturizer well depends on the product a lot of them are the same thing a hydrator would technically add water to the skin moisturizer also adds more moisture to the skin but it can also add oil and it’s kind of a trick question because plenty of moisturizers most moisturizers are hydrated so i wouldn’t get too carried away in verbiage check the products uh too much to layer a plus with ddg retinol moisturize it uh yeah you don’t need it save your money right don’t use two products if you only need to use one thoughts on la roche posay and clarence i love both of those brands dry flaky skin behind the eyebrows what can help uh go over it with an acid like a lactic is the most gentle go over it with a lactic acid and then you can either use facial oil or you can moisturize um i’ve got to tell you about under the skin marks uh one of those things you can use things like the anti-bump solution uh but it depends how you have to let them come either come to a head or let them go away because when they’re under the skin there’s not much you can do if they’re hormonal especially if you are female and they’re all here basically treatment for keratosis polaris on black skin it would be the same as um on a caucasian skin sandra um i don’t know where you live but there’s a product called ameliorate which is acids into a cream now do i have one to hand now you can see why i’m always looking because i always have everything nearby i don’t i do i think i took it home um but it basically you rub it on and it does uh get rid of them not immediately but yes women shaving peach fuzzy depends on the woman my peach fuzz doesn’t bother me it’s not that intense a lot of people especially uh women who have things like pcos and hormonal issues they get a lot of fuzz on the skin their words so then i would say yes you can uh have it taken care of you’re looking at the kate summerville moisturizers you mean mine what should i try your 42 and have dry skin oh please hold caller i’m here peptide kate is my favorite uh once once used never forgotten amelia versus sarah vsa for kp um you could use both and to be fair i think sarah is much more available in the usa so probably sarah vsa if you’re in the usa and then ameliorate if you’re in the uk um thoughts on wishful skincare i think if you’re a hooder fan it’s fine i haven’t found anything that massively offended me um did i already scream at people for using the red ordinary thing no but i will zealand’s cream and rosacea do you mean which zealand’s cream for rosacea in which case i would say the vitamin d oil not a cream because that’s pretty phenomenal can you use luna every night yes you can i’ve just realized that a lot of comments are repeating it’s like they’re on a cycle so that’s good i’m not as panicked how does one ask one’s gp to prescribe retinol they probably don’t they probably won’t so i would there are two in the uk because you said gp so i’m assuming you’re in the uk in the uk there are two brands one is called domatica i’m gonna make my chair higher because i look really weird one is called domatica and one is called skin in me and they both do prescriptions via the post uh and they’re great uh at the moment skin and me winning for me because they do azoleic acid and niacinamide and mixes like that um and so yeah they’re very good i like a lot how do you store the mother dirt moisturizer yours is leaking oh no is it a shame turn it on its side if you need to wedge it upside down so this isn’t it but you’d have to wedge it in something upside down but i haven’t heard of anything leaking before that’s a shame sorry about that any products to get rid of your suntash uh yes again depending on where you live you can do via post in the usa it’s curology and in the uk it’s skin in me and dramatica and they will prescribe you uh things like hydroquinone um at the legal percentage um hydroquinone um alec acid niacinamide things that will help because what you don’t want to do if you have dark skin tone is use the wrong product because you can make it worse but don’t worry if you are prescribed it yeah like curology if you are prescribed you should be good to go because they take good care of you um what’s the benefit of using the mother dermis who should use so the mother dirt mist is if you don’t know is live bacteria in a spray i don’t have one here to demo because we took them home and we’ve used them but mother dirt mist is amazing for um everything any kind of skin condition so acne uh rosacea psoriasis pretty much any skin condition um and it genuinely absolutely works i have no financial connection to that brand and i’ve never done any sponsored work for them or anything so just a genuine recommendation um can you use the dr dennis most gentle pads from the spring kit while under my for acne not yes i would imagine what are you on maybe a duet type thing or an adaptation but if it’s sore when you apply it at your cue to get the hell out like stop thoughts on tarte knockout treatment i found it really quite a raw formulation people keep saying it’s a dupe for p50 it’s nothing like p50 i think it might be here actually because i brought it back oh yes here let me make sure i sit down on the chair uh this one so the tarte knockout tingling treatment is nothing like p50 uh retinal core spot it can cause you to purge a little bit when you first start using it but it shouldn’t give you spots it’s supposed to help you with spots your son has psoriasis in an awful location because he used the mother dirt spray and the spray has given him greater relief than prescription ointment i’m not surprised by that at all it is amazing uh advice on hyaluronic acid injections for dark circles if you mean filler uh filler works when used for dark circles because essentially they come in here through a cannula um and basically the filler sits in front of the dark circles and that’s why it works it doesn’t get rid of them it hides them clearly i have not had that done advice on milia treatment get them removed get them removed professionally make sure you’re using an acid make sure you’re keeping your skin well hydrated uh oh i can turn the fan off hang on you might want to add them like i can’t be bothered getting into all the mic situation um can you use the pixie retinol toner and an acid in the same nighttime routine i’m new to try and wet on your mid-20s uh do you mean like the pixie retina toner and then like an acid toner you wouldn’t need both pick one and stick with it or alternate them every other night don’t uh worry about don’t try and use too much at once on your face it’s too much can you use anything on your son’s pre-teen blackheads yes you can use uh salicylic acid um generally bhas so paula’s choice make the most famous one it’s a bha solution but all of the more affordable brands do them too so the ordinary vinculis garden of wisdom all of those kind of more affordable brands do them um is vitamin c necessary love the oscar oil but wondering how necessary it is in my routine and it depends on your age and your lifestyle i love a vitamin c i use it every day i love the skier one and i love my friday’s one i was really nicely surprised by the summer fridays one um is p50 okay in the morning before vmc p50w um yeah you can use it am or pm i would just make sure it’s uh you give your skin a little bit of time in between the mouth and it depends on what vitamin c you’re talking about if you’re talking about a really strong one then i would probably not but if it’s just an average vitamin c then you’ll be okay can you use niacin alongside different um you can but i wouldn’t use like say for example the ordinary is nicer than my powder i wouldn’t make up your own and do that that way um if it’s a formula situation yes but again don’t go crazy trying to do everything and don’t do anything too strong and don’t do them all together if that makes sense should sensitive red skin avoid fragrance um you’re probably better off if you’ve got sensitive red skin avoiding particular products or um of products then you are fragrance but certainly some fragrance like if i was if i had a compromised skin barrier which i get sometimes if i’m doing tret and i use say i don’t know i’m just thinking of something really perfumed chanel or girl an or like a lancome something traditionally old school that’s really fragrance yes my face would sting it would not be great why don’t i like the ordinary red acid thing well i’m glad you asked because it’s not that i don’t like it it’s just that it’s being abused especially on tick tock so this is 30 aha 2 bha it’s a peeling solution uh if you’re unaware it looks like this it is i’ll give it to you there it is bright red and that’s why it is really popular on tiktok in particular um it is to be used at the most for 10 minutes i have to look at the left because that’s where the comments are sorry um it is really really popular on tik tok and it is being used by the wrong people in the wrong market at the wrong time they’re also abusing this and doing this do not take it from the pipette there is so much wrong with those videos uh there are much better options so if you look at things like the ordinary niacinamide this one let me see if that’s better there we are and then the salicylic acid two percent mask they are better for you if you have particular problems that normal younger skins have also a younger skin a teenage skin has to my mind has absolutely no business putting a 30 glycolic on their face you have absolutely no reason to put a 30 glycolic on your face um you’re much better off with a niacinamide or a salicylic acid and i know that you want something affordable so i’ve stuck to the ordinary but just don’t just stop it please and i haven’t done the reaction videos yet i am planning to i’ve just been so busy i’ll do them probably over the weekend when i’m at home because it’s back holiday weekend in the uk hurrah um do you think if i turn it let me just stay there let me see what it does to the questions if i move it sorry if this means oh no the operation is locked it won’t let me next time i’ll try and do it the way that we just got on insta and then we’ll see how we go because i just like the comments are all here and i know i should be talking to you and knocking here and being like hi well i can’t because i can’t see the comments advice for bumps under the skin we’ve done that would as a lake be suitable for a younger and darker skin yes sandra azalea is fantastic azelaic’s great pretty much for all skins also as a layer is used frequently for people who are pregnant and of being steered away from retinoids what’s the other place other than dramatica it’s called skin in me skin and me and not and amd skin and me that’s the uk curology is the other one in the usa wearing a mask at work makes my skin in that area super dry any super moisturizing right sunken wrestling yes so if you are wearing if you have musk knee or if you’re super dry you need really good moisturizers but you can the problem is you can only really use them when you get home and you’ve washed your face because if you use a really rich moisturizer in this area it will completely um you run the risk of making the barrier with your mask no good so do it all when you get home suffer through and then there are great products you can use your normal moisturizer that’s a bit thicker or you can use things like um dermalogica barrier repair is a fantastic product if you get dry um what do i think about boku chill does it really work like a retinol without any irritation no bucutiol is not a retinoid it is not a vitamin a it is something that was tested a couple of times and people said well this tax this has good results and there’s no irritation which is fantastic but why why are we telling people it’s a retinoid stop it spironolactone thoughts uh yeah if your doctor recommends it by all means try it it must be that you have um they must have had a reason to do the prescription right so try it a retinoid is vitamin a anything vitamin a um i was there with a product good for psoriasis mother dirt mist well that’s the one i think i’ve just mentioned by the dirt mist is a water gel better than a moisturizer for really oily skin oh yeah it can be i’ve got a couple of water gels things like belief and dr jart they both do water gels um they are certainly lighter what’s the difference between dramatica and skin and me um they’re different companies at the moment from what i can see skin and me have more available than domatica because i said to my for my dramatica prescription i wanted to change it to a smaller um tret percentage tretinoin percentage and then add in some azaleic or and and or some niacinamide and they didn’t have as the lake i believe available yet but skin in me does so i’ve been getting it from skin and me um do you have any tips for graduating to post isotretinoin and reintroducing skin care hello joshua yeah you need to build up your skin barrier i imagine you’re probably quite dry i’m guessing uh you may not be it’s a sweeping generalization but if you are quite dry then yes i would um i would certainly look at adding uh nice emollients to your skin look for things that are glycerin-based as opposed to things that are purely like hyaluronic acid based um and then try and don’t use anything too harsh because the problem you have most people when they come off of a row accutane or a really uh prescriptive prescription lead routine is that your face is clear maybe for the first time uh in a long time and then the problem is you still treat your skin as if you have acne but you don’t have acne anymore and you need to look at what you’re using so i would look and check that the skin care you routine you have i’m going to talk to you is not the same that you were using before you had your treatment because it could very easily become too drying is the cerave sa smoothing cleanser the same as the cerave renewing sa cleanser oh that’s a good question i don’t know because i do know that a couple of cerave things are different in the uk in the usa i have the sa cleanser that’s the one i love how much does trek cost if you see a derm uh it’s not that it costs a lot for the treat the treats about 40 quid prescription the derm appointment is where you spend your money what does vitamin a do for the skin vitamin a regenerates uh it’s a true uh reversal of aging product and proven uh thoughts on sunday riley good genes i love sunday really good genes just bear in mind in the usa it’s lactic and in the uk and the eu it’s glycolic have i tried the pixie clarity tonic yes and there’s a post coming about it on monday uh long-term use of duac okay uh yeah as long as you’re under your doctor and your doctor’s checking your skin i mean you would hope that the problems you have with your skin you would grow out of or that they would sometimes go away so i would look at seeing if you have to use it long term hopefully you won’t um what do i think of nobel penney or crazy price i haven’t seen that one actually i don’t know that range sorry but i recommend the body shop vitamin c mist you really need to miss no like there are better mists mists um available it depends where you live again if you live in the uk you can do things like sarah’s inc you can do la roche posay um talirian mist which is brilliant and it’s glycolic based so it’s nice and gentle for all skins um hello jason kessler um vitamin c not in oil you want a vitamin c that’s not in oil i don’t know what your question is over-the-counter retinol in the evening benzoyl peroxide in the morning is if it’s necessary benzyl peroxide and retinols are both quite strong so it depends on if it’s necessary you know i wouldn’t go go crazy um hang on favorite products from traditional brands like chanel girl and long coming dior uh i don’t have many to be honest i think there is better uh on the market most independent brands are better than the old sort of big the only ones i still really use are i use the odd thing from lauder like i don’t mind advanced night repair um i use clarins i use clarins more than i use girl and chanel hydra range i really really like um but it is chanel and it’s fragranced so if you have a problem with fragrance don’t even look at it um did you mean to say the mist was glycolic based glycerin maybe no it’s glycerin based it’s a mist it’s glycerin-based i know what i’m talking about don’t worry it’s a mist it’s glycerin-based um favorite affordable exfoliant i think i’ve answered that question haven’t i pretty sure i have um can i use glycolic acid toner and then retinol how long do i wait between each application um you can you don’t have to uh depends on your retinol if your retinol is in an oil base and it’s milder then you’re okay if it’s in if it’s a stronger retinoid i wouldn’t i think it’s too it’s too much you don’t need it how to stop pimples around the mouth for oily skin depends if you mean all around here i would go on to my blog and check periolal dermatitis and see if any of that rings are belt if it’s not that and it’s just spots then you can just use your normal spot treatments you can use salicylic acid things like that but if they’re here and it’s a lot of groups of redness then i would search salicylic um i would search period dermatitis best lip moisturizer hang on best lip moisturizer mask that’s long lasting i don’t know really i don’t use a particular lip mask or a lip moisturizer i use charlotte tilbury’s lip oil which i think is in here maybe it’s not oh it is here hang on this one you can tell i like it look the charlotte tilbury lip oil i love uh but i don’t really i don’t think i’ve ever bought a separate lip mask to be honest um is it better than the clarins lip oil yeah the clarins lip oil to me is more cosmetic the charlotte lip oil is a lip oil makes sense thoughts on growth factor products um i’m generally not a fan but i’m i they work but i’m not the biggest fan purely because my mum had skin cancer and i am very aware that when you have any kind of treatment for a carcinoma melanoma um you are frequently given anti-egf medication and that’s what egf is what is in growth factor epidermal growth factor so i’m i’m wary but i have friends who love them and things like um bio effect i mean bio effects one of the best selling lines on british airways well it used to be uh so i’m i’m wary it’s probably the best way of putting it advice for acne scarring it depends how bad your acne scarring is it depends if it’s fresh if it’s fresh and it’s pink you can certainly you can certainly target it by um using decent product so you could use retinoids are still the gold standard um if however they are deep and you’re looking at what we would call uh the different other scarring you can do things like subcision with only with a doctor or a derm and i would be careful googling that if you’re not good with needles but subcision is suv cis ion and they basically break up the collagen fibers between your scar and your skin with a needle and then they treat them so it basically removes the it’s almost like a pitted scar is like an anchor right so think of it as you your skin is damaged and it leaves the mark and it almost anchors your skin which is why you get the pit the pitted but what the substition does is that it breaks up yeah it’s quite grim it breaks up the it kind of cuts the ties that works but it is not for the faint-hearted um but it would work otherwise you can do um azaleaic mixed with niacinamide and retinoids to sort of have brightness and to also help alleviate scarring can you use liquid silicate day night i think it would be too much personally um i think you only need it once someone told me tretinoin increases your risk for skin cancer that’s not true jason that person is not telling you the truth uh what are the best ingredients and treatments for texture um well again acid and vitamin a or tretinoin or retinoids acid and retinoids either or when did i go on trip kind of i haven’t i’m not on it permanently i think it’s been like i think it’s been like a like a year and a bit where i’ve sort of had it on order and then i because i don’t use trep when i’m trialing other things that can clash with it um but yeah i’m i mean you know it’s the gold standard so advice on dark blue veins under eyes on pale skin not a lot you can do you can there are certain procedures you can have but they would all be quite invasive a lot of the time i do think it’s worth you just get a good concealer and i know that’s not what you want to hear but i’m not going to lie to you and say this cream will fix it do i still consider biologique lotion p50 or prg research superior yes yeah it’s by far the the best acid available in terms of for what you want from an acid right like definitely um but it’s it’s not for everyone it’s not for everyone if you were not trying other products would you be happy to use constantly oh i would yeah but i’m 51.
you don’t need tre every day if you’re 20. absolutely not unless of course you have what trev was started for which is acne in which case you would be under a doctor’s care anyway okay i’ve always been invested in your skincare but was really rooting for rihanna when she came out and she had from a platform about that all skincare is for men too uh i don’t know i’m confused what did what did she say that you weren’t happy with all skincare oh that her skincare is for men too maybe yeah you can use rihanna skincare it’s fine it’s a cleanser and a lotion of moisture and an spf you’re fine thoughts don’t thoughts on the best first aid beauty products um i like the acid pads i like the thicker cream what it’s called it’s the one in the pot it’s really bad um the i like the oat stuff but i can’t bloody remember what they’re called um which products are best for fresh acne scars again i don’t sound like a broken record but probably tret nice bit of trap um vitamin a can’t go wrong people can’t go wrong um went to your obazi you use tret and the blender do i need to keep on using the blender with obagi you use your you put you’re not telling me you put your tread on with the blender you need to let me know if that’s what you mean so i can answer your question properly because that’s a bit odd thoughts on kipra skincare it’s extremely expensive for what it is um probiotic cream is good for acne prone skin um i would say the jury’s out personally i think you need to you’re better off looking at what you cleanse with and what you’re treating with thoughts on lush moisturizers they’re very thick and very basic um thoughts on the retinoids by medicate i love medicaid it’s a fantastic brand they’ve been in nearly i think every kit i’ve done so far they’re all great is kate somerville nourished being discontinued yeah they have they are reformulating it um i mean i love nourish it’s one of my favorite moisturizers they are reformulating it to become part of a new range but they have assured me it will be back thoughts on dr sam bunting skincare i got on with dr sam’s skincare except the cleanser everything else was fine uh you’ve been purging from sunday riley sunday rally luna for four months you’ve finished a bottle a month to go any advice please if you finished the bottle four months ago and you’re still purging then you’ve triggered something and something’s not quite right amber it it doesn’t mean that you can’t use a retinoid it might just be that it’s it’s caused some other kind of problem it’s really hard to say with a question like that without seeing your skin how do i help spots caused by infection with a beard um anthony for men does brilliant beard products they have um pre-beard acid they have post shaving oil they do all kinds of things and they are where i send any of my um gentlemen clients with black skin i generally send them to antony for men unless they need something professional strength but with the spots that are caused by an infection if you mean it’s an ingrowing hair then i would use acid pads to get it off and then something soothing on top but yeah check out anthony for men and it’s not extortionately expensive um it was originally made by a man it’s been sold now to someone else i can’t remember who but it’s a great brand for boys with beards basically can i beg kate to release a massive bottle of peptide cake well when it was called deep tissue repair they sent me a salon size maybe like five six years ago maybe even longer and it was a 500 ml god it lasted me ages it was amazing do i like any of the cosrx products or overrated the ones i’ve played with are fine they’re not like my first brand to go to and be like oh my god this is amazing i need this now um but yeah they’ve been okay mists all year round absolutely um can i use the dermalogica moisturizer from kit 2 after trek yes you can you keep sniffing the demand meal press serum it’s delicious it is delicious uh yes the dermalogica moisturizer that was in kit 2 intensive moisture balance is perfect uh after threat absolutely excuse me i’m gonna do like five more minutes because i’ve been talking since four o’clock um is the p50v the strongest version in the uk no p50 original is the strongest version just p50 that’s the strongest version sorry excuse me won’t you um cinderella continued your skin was always clear before but now it’s continuously getting white bumps and spots not sure how to fix and haven’t used retinol since okay so in that case i would get a prescription retinoid but i would do it via depending where you live hopefully you’re in the uk or the usa i would do it via curology dramatica or skin in me um okay someone will kate k8 in the morning or night both you can use it am and pm do you have to take a break when using retinol or can you use it all year round you can use it all year round but you don’t have to use it all year round if you’re older it benefits you like it benefits me using um a trap all year round because i’m older right but like i said if you’re not then don’t white can you use medicaid 10 tr intense on the nose and in between eyebrows yes you can of course you can um thoughts on new elements butter cleanser i don’t think i’ve used that yet i think i’ve got it here but i haven’t taken it home oh no i’ve got the aha glow superfood oh is that it it does say butter it’s here i haven’t used it yet sorry i’ll maybe i’ll take it home um best eye cream or serum for wrinkles crepey under eyes oh there’s loads um you could do i mean to be honest most brands do them and it depends where you live so jordan samuel does a light eye gel let me just check on my shelf i can show you some there’s loads okay there’s i’ll show you what i’ve got on that so that what’s the end of it this one is my eye shelf uh beauty pie great um murad great embryolisse do a great eye cream uh the egf eye cream’s really nice but we’ve already covered egf um dennis gross kate somerville line release but that’s not um those last two that i mentioned are not the most affordable so it depends on your budget um thoughts on la mer i don’t use it my mum loves it personally i don’t use it but my mum loves a rich cream she’s got lupus so she’s very obsessed about her skin getting the rash she doesn’t want the lupus rash understandably um you’re really struggling with white heads that might don’t go away you have endometriosis so you’re not sure if it’s connected to that um you pick them and they come back they can stay for months at a time well if you have endometriosis it is highly possible that they are related to your hormones can you afford to go and see a hormone specialist because if you have endometriosis you probably should be doing that anyway if you can afford it um i would that’s what i would recommend can i use a product to fix seeded six-month shelf life uh yeah have you opened it and is it really um like fresh and does it claim to be clean in which case the preservative system will be useless then no if it’s a normal product with a normal preservative system yes um oh my words like they disappear and come back thoughts on pericone i like pericone i used to use it a lot more in the past i don’t know i haven’t used it that much lately i think because there’s just so much competition i’m always trying newness um yeah i’m not sure but there’s nothing i like the brand our broken capillary is treatable yes but not with creams you need machinery and intervention you can have them um zapped so we have a machine i don’t have it here but we have a machine that is a bit like a it’s a microcurrent and you hold the electrical electrolysis needle let me see if i can find i mind you i’ve put concealer on let’s say that this bit of pigmentation was a broken capillary you hold the needle just into the surface of the skin we use our feet to charge it so your feet your foot presses the pedal it charges the electricity and the electric the electricity blows the vein in a very safe way it sounds really bad um in a safe way and then they’re gone they’re completely gone i know people have successful laser but it tends to come back with laser snail mucin love or hate i’m not a fan of using snail products on my face that’s just me can i just say by the way that the last time i said i wasn’t a fan of using products with snails in i got accused of being racist towards asian people and my response was well do you mean people in east asia are you talking about asia as a whole continent and also that’s just rubbish just because someone says they don’t like using snail does not mean that they’re racist that’s a reach barbara um do you not care for egf yeah i kind of explained earlier it works i’m just wary of it from the cancer point of view um best beginner acid for treat user with sensitive skins ellen’s pha ddg peel pads of 42 with chin acne uh you could use either they are both they’re two of my favorite acids so you’re fine with either of those pha is slightly more gentle dennis gross will have glycolic so if you’re using tret you might find that zelen’s is um zelen’s is more um lenient towards your face um is laroche a vitamin c serum worth it uh depends what your budget is it’s good but there are better ones on the market i don’t know that’s racist against snails i know tell me about it it’s ridiculous anti-aging skin care for young skin the best anti-aging skincare product for someone who’s in their early 20s is spf there’s no better anti-aging skincare than spf if you’re in your early 20s uh thoughts on home steamers i’m not a fan i won’t bother but then i am very lazy when it comes to home skincare i would rather be i’d rather have it done by someone who’s a pro and also i get quite red in the cheek so i’m not big on steam anyway when people when i have a facialist with good facialists they know they can tell by looking at my skin i would tend to go red here so they put damp cotton pads on my face and steam the rest and that works fine thoughts on qvc products junior judith williams or declior um i don’t know enough about judith williams but i like a bit of declare it’s fine i think the thing with that you need to remember with brands like declior clarins darpan anything in that french sort of spa treatment family is that it will always be um feel and sensorial experience first and then the efficaciousness is not as strong as it is with some brands but some of the products that they make are beautiful but for example none of them make a super strong retinoid it’s just not their bag you know that makes sense any favorites from dolphin yeah i did a post on dark fan yesterday went up yesterday i love it p50 in pregnancy yes you’re fine p50 in pregnancy um i’m gonna do a few more questions and i’m going because it’s making my eyes go funny because the comments are over here and next time i do it i might do it this way up we’ll play with it shall we i saw a couple of good products and a couple of good questions and they’ve gone so do i know any good estheticians in scotland or glasgow yes there was one called jen uh in zen lifestyle which is in edinburgh and i believe glasgow she i was a presenter at the babtac awards last year and she won best facialist and then she won the best overall and she’s in edinburgh she’s also on instagram as oh god jen i follow her so look for who i follow she’s jennifer i want to say michael girl or something like that i just call it jen’s i don’t know um should people of color be using slightly different products and is there anything to avoid in particular no not really nothing that you can buy over the counter will do more damage to your skin and if you’re buying something prescription strength you would you’ll have to be talking to a doctor or a derm anyway so don’t worry about it and if you have any questions my friend deja aya dole is a brilliant black facialist um she’s a or in if you’re in the u.
s you would call her a master esthetician and she talks happily about how she will happily do a glycolic peel on a darker skin and i’ve done videos with her as well so you’ll find my video with her from earlier this year um on that on this channel what do i think of the think dirty app and if so what do i think of clean products i hate both of them with a passion i think the think dirty app is offensive and clean products are a load of [ __ ] you must be new here right five minutes because i’ve got to go home and have some dinner and okay thoughts on a313 it’s fine i don’t think it’s as amazing as people say it is it’s fine it’s a very mild retinol retinoid thoughts on drunk elephant baby facial i think it’s too strong i don’t think anyone needs to be using that percentage on their skin outside of a clinic environment i think the problem that we have and that’s all again comes from things like this is that people see something like this and think that they can replicate what someone like i could do on them in a clinic at home and you can’t you can’t a 30 glycolic peel with a proper ph that i would do would be completely different to this 30 and the ph is 3.
6 so um that’s one of my bug bears is people thinking that they can replicate or get rid of someone with my skill set i mean not me in particular i’m not treating at the moment but you know my friends um and that they can replicate it at home you can’t so when we do things like you can try this at home it means like we’ll just give you things that tide you over but if you want to have a really proper facial you’re going to have things done to your skin that you cannot do at home um advice for breakouts caused by ppe i did a whole instagram live it’s on my instagram channel um it’s saved as an igtv but i’ll tell you now it was back in like march or april it was at the beginning of lockdown when everyone started to get the problems uh but in essence you do what you can during the day or during the night during your shift if you get when you get home you take off your mask and then you you basically cleanse with something really really good that’s not particularly foaming because your barriers already disrupted so think about things like um uh again the cerave sa is a great cleanser um uh acids afterwards and then really light moisturizers jen glenn at zed edinburgh there you go jen glenn at zen edinburgh she is lush um for the darth and purifying gold balm are you using it as a final oil yeah the dolphin purifying balm is thick so you want to and i don’t think i’ve got one hit lou have i got any darth and purifying bomb here sorry okay cool uh lou is my sort of office manager slash assistant slash right hand slash if she leaves me i’ll die and she knows where everything is she literally just said no it’s at your house the diaphragm purifying bomb is a thicker bomb if you think of a cleansing bomb it’s thicker than that you open it up you scrape your finger across the top you get is the dolphin purifying bomb good for actually your own skin yeah that’s what it’s for maybe the top edge of your fingernail full take it like this this is not a therapist wipe situation take it like this rub it melt it in your fingers and then go straight to where you have the biggest problem massage it through i love it it’s one of my first dolphin purifying balm i think was the first product i ever fell properly in love with i mean i don’t need it as much now because i was using it when i was in my 20s and 30s i don’t need it as much now but it is um can facials cause acne breakouts not good ones no we’re there to fix them not make them worse derma e products don’t know enough about dermate sorry should you use active on the body if you want to i can’t be bothered i’ve had four kids i’m 51 i’m not going to use an expensive cellulite cream they do not work why would i bother thoughts on jordan samuel sierra antioxidant serum funny you should ask because i just demoed with this earlier uh this is jordan’s serum uh what i love about it is that he hasn’t made it a funny color like a funny yellow or dyed it yellow to make people think that it’s um i know that’s the retinol i’ll pick the wrong bloody one sorry guys but it’s the same brand good job look isn’t it um i love anything jordan makes i like easy easy answer is it like the cerave healing ointment what i assume you mean the darth and purifying bomb uh no the cerave healing ointment is a much thicker cream and it’s for a different thing so the steri-v healing ointment is for a dry skin and dar fan is for any skin but predominantly normal combination i’m going to do two or three more questions and then i’m going home healing soothing mask on a budget versed i put them on this morning yesterday verse if you’re in the u.
s you get them anywhere and if you’re in the uk you get the cult beauty they are under 10 pounds and they have it says 12 plus see there’s any more here i think i’ve taken them they have 12 plus in them so you can use away um is darth and bomb a second cleanse no it’s a leave on treatment the darphan cleansing balm can be a second cleanser but the purifying balm is a treatment very different thoughts on ordinary products i like the ordinary i don’t like all of it i like 80 of it i don’t like um saying i don’t like is wrong i would say i’m not a fan of putting in the hands of mainly young people because it’s mainly young people their audience don’t come at me i know that for a fact um it’s making them feel that they could be like chemists and you can’t so things like the niacinamide powder i think is a step too far and i think they should reconsider perhaps selling that um mad hippie products are fine and affordable but not necessarily like yay what happened to the drunk elephant video with tiffany well her head of npd nathan was pretty disrespectful and horrible about me so i took everything down because screw them frankly why would i leave up a nice video that was perfectly pretty much endorsing them and then have him slag me off no kiss my ass um best cleanser on a budget cerave um do i think a retinoid and then the darphang purifying bone would be a good combo kevin sue i do however i would say make sure your retinoid gets the good because darth and purifying balm you only need a little bit remember like less is more grip not slip um darth van pyramin is quite rich so do your retinoid leave it for at least half an hour an hour and then put your darpan purifying balm on i love that oh i’m gonna go home and use it you’ve inspired me um thoughts on augustina’s bada products expensive unproven uh my big thing is if you make such a if you make such a fuss about if you make such a fuss about this amazing ingredient that you have i have questions so if it’s so unique why haven’t you patented it things like that now maybe they’re in the process of doing that i don’t know kit one’s already changed your skin oh that’s amazing good i love copper peptides i’m just going with questions as four thousand so look if you can avoid avoid that’s a freudian slip i was going to say if you can afford august bader bada bader then knock yourself out would i spend my money on it no uh and that includes the victoria beckham version no there’s not enough proof to say to me like where are the clinical trials don’t say that something can do this and charge two three hundred pounds and dollars for it if you don’t have a clinical trial i just i think that’s just fair no if i was bringing out a product that was 300 quid like it would need to carry your shopping home for you do you know what i mean right well i think we’ve all learned something here we’ve learned that if i turn it into landscape my eyes are gonna kill me and be looking over there when i should be talking to you here but i can’t because then i can’t see the comments so i think next time we’ll do it right way up um you need a budget skincare routine recommendation check the blog babe there are loads or just hit up those certain brands do uh the ordinary do the inky list do gardener wisdom any of those thoughts on oscar super 16 serum there’s not a product that oscar make that i do not like oskia take science seriously they um they really care about their consumer i love oskia i’m not paid by them i just love the brand um i’m just checking there’s any that we haven’t really what’s that about the book i’ve received your book is there another to follow god know like it’s called the ultimate no-nonsense guide i don’t know anything else i’ve already done some tweaks for the next run the next reprint has got some tweaks in it nothing like life-changing don’t worry i can read the comments from my phone but then how would i go live if why would i read you mean if i turn it the right way around i don’t understand what you’re saying to me do i look technical to you come on help stylistic sensitivity well then don’t use it i mean sometimes it’s just common sense right if you’re allergic avoid it um no read from a second phone oh thank you for that now i feel like the 51 year old grandmother to be that i am but yes i understand what you mean now i will look into it and now i understand when i watch someone doing a live stream they were holding a phone while they were i i get it i tip my hat i get it um thank you for that um i’m going i will definitely do it again there’s no sunday riley update yet as soon as i have a sunday riley update i will let you know um oily skin but dry neck any advice yes just use a different product on each it’s really really rare to have an oily neck you generally have we all generally have a dryer neck um it’s hyaluronic acid all it’s cracked up to be i love a bit of hyaluronic acid i know there’s a massive movement away to sort of scare people away from it but in the right formula and this is the problem in the right formula it is a spectacular ingredient that’s all i can say right uh i will see you all again soon um if you have not um like if you have only just bumped into me there is a blog with about 1600 blog posts on it it’s really easy to find it’s carolinehirens.
