hello everybody welcome back to my channel where we talk about skincare grooming and sometimes hair so that sounds like your thing make sure you are subscribed also come and follow me on instagram where i post a lot of stuff you’re not gonna see here on youtube today we’re gonna take a look at more beauty guru skincare mistakes now this isn’t just beauty gurus anymore this is kind of like skin care mistakes that stem from the information beauty gurus have put out there so we’ve expanded a little bit and with my recent findings on tick tock i have some very disturbing clips to show you today please bear in mind that i am not licensed in any way to talk about what people should be doing to their skin however some things are just so obviously painfully wrong that i don’t think you have to be professional to realize there’s something something not quite right here so you may or may not know that i have a tick tock account which i will be putting more content out hopefully in the next couple weeks but i don’t really go on it that often so i’ll check my notifications just to see what i’ve been tagged in and i was tagged in this ten times which is a lot considering i don’t have many followers on tick tock and i’ve called this baby oil bronzer so let’s take a look there’s two parts to this video and i’m gonna try and watch it without pausing it so you get a really good idea of what’s going on see what i mean part two hey everybody so i’m about to go to work right now but if you guys saw this tick tock right over here i made this bronzy tanner self tanner oil and i wanted to show you guys how to make it really quick with these two ingredients now the first ingredient that you need is baby oil i got this one from walmart it is 4.
92 um i got the cocoa butter sense of baby oil because it smells really good but you get the regular one if you want doesn’t matter the last and final product that you need is this wet and wild bronzer in the color 739a i also purchased this from walmart it was about 3.
98 so all together both products came up to about ten dollars so you can make this for about ten dollars at home yourself tanning bronzer to use in the sun it works amazing you only need an hour in the sun if you stay in the sun longer than an hour you might burn don’t recommend putting on your face you might break out because it is oil but good luck to you guys and i hope it works for you thank you bye this oh so i hate this so so much i think it’s so bad i think it’s such a dangerous video to put out there so let let’s kind of dissect it a little bit i’ve got my laptop here i’ll be i’m watching the clips down here so did you see that her skin how dark her skin went within an hour and this isn’t because she put those bronzing pigments in rubbed over your legs that’s really not going to give you that dark color that’s not what contributed to this her skin has gone that dark because she is using oil to tan she’s basically frying her skin a bit extreme so here’s what happens when you cover your body in baby oil actually not just baby oil but tanning oils you know the factor two like carrot oil things i don’t know if you’ve used them before but anyway this is what happens so these oils baby oil intensifies the uv rays so uva uvb rays you know we see uva for aging uvb for burning it intensifies both of those things this in turn speeds up the tanning process because it’s making those rays penetrate faster penetrate deeper into the skin we know that laying out in the sun whether it’s an hour or not to tan is not safe whatever way you do it it’s not good for your skin so the fact that these oils speed up that turning process and intensifies those uv rays what this also means is it intensifies the risks of burning high risk of skin cancer higher risk of aging quicker which is going to happen if you’re laying out in the sun that pigment is going to make your legs look sparkly but it’s not going to make your skin look as dark as that went please don’t do this you can still tan through sunscreen i’m not a fan of laying out in the sun and tanning on purpose i don’t recommend it if you spend all your money on skincare and all you then do is go out in the sun and damage your skin there’s no fucking point this is dangerous please don’t do this this is damaging your skin it’s crazy it’s absolutely crazy to me i just see in a lot of the comments i’ll repeat that she went that dark because the bronzing pigment it’s not because of that spread that out over it’s not going to make you that dark you can see the physical tan line on her leg it’s insanely dangerous please don’t do this okay so let’s move on to our next video i’ve named this video over exfoliating girl in my notes so let’s have a little look i have watched all these videos by the way so it’s not really reactions oh before i talk about this one i just want to note that obviously all skin is different what might be horrible and harmful for my skin isn’t necessarily going to be damaging for other people’s skin certain skin it can take certain um punches let’s say mine can’t take a lot gonna pause it there real quick i just want to talk about the cleansing balm so the point of a cleansing balm and even a cleansing oil is that you massage it gently on the skin in order to break down makeup sunscreen waterproof eyeliner mascara you gently massage and it all loosens the makeup off using this like face brush feels a little bit redundant to me because you’re tugging at your skin you can see how much it was tugging around the eyes tugging at the skin you’re manually exfoliating there’s you can see there’s still bit of makeup on her eyes like later on as well if had you just massaged this over your eyes and rinsed away it would have loosened up a lot easier i think okay so she wipes that away again the point of these cleansing balms is to melt everything down literally melt away everything um that a water-based cleanser couldn’t and then you’re meant to emulsify so i i actually love this cleansing balm it’s the glow recipe papaya one which i got to test before it was released and i love it the point of these is that you’re meant to put on add warm water emulsify then rinse away and all your makeup will be gone i know this product leaves a slight oily film and it you do have to rinse away and emulsify a lot more than you would do a normal cleansing balm but is very very good and effective you can wipe away oils absolutely but the whole point again is that you’re not going to be rubbing or tugging at your skin it’s meant to be like a less kind of intrusive experience and process so in my opinion she may as well just use like a flannel or a makeup wipe no that’s a bit far the oil would have broke it like broke it down a lot easier but the the tugging the whole tugging process and manual exfoliation kind of goes against the idea that this is meant to be a gentle weight and easier way to remove your makeup more manual exfoliation so she’s using a normal cleanser now and using her face brush with this again in one of my previous videos where i mentioned that i don’t like face brushes because for me it’s it’s an exfoliating stage and it leads to over exfoliation someone actually left me a comment saying that they didn’t like the way influencers were saying that this is a expose a manual brushes were an exfoliating stage because they’re not they are i haven’t seen a lot of dermatologists talk about how they do not like the clarisonics because they are an exfoliating stage and leads to overexfoliation it’s very obvious you’re dragging a physical brush along your skin it’s manual exfoliation my skin could not take this much exfoliation i could do it maybe two to three times a week one physical exfoliant a week if i wanted to but this is a non-stop exfoliation at the moment this is another exfoliant okay so she’s using a manual brush to use an exfoliating product so this is a garmage exfoliator a peeling gel absolutely no need to use the brush to use this i mean that’s completely up to her i like skincare brushes but again i wouldn’t use this to exfoliate my skin this particular product the huda beauty is not her beauty it’s hood as wishful brand contains citric acid lactic acid malic acid salicylic acid tataric acid glycolic acid so it’s got a mix of ahas and bhas in it so it’s a physical and slight chemical exfoliation and then that manual brush is another exfoliation by this stage my skin would be red raw her skin seems absolutely fine okay so now she’s going in with another exfoliator this is an aha tonic it may be a low percentage it’s still an exfoliation so she’s done the manual exfoliation non-stop she’s done the peeling gourmage she’s done a chemical exfoliator so she’s done a lot of different stages of exfoliation again her skin looks incredible mine would be falling off my face her skin looks incredible she’s glowing my skin would not look like this after that much exfoliation i love skincare brushes you do not need them but they do make your skincare feel like a lot more luxurious that looked like a whole pampering session it looked like she was having the best time too much exfoliation of any kind can be irritating this by all means is not a good skincare routine for all people it seems to work perfectly fine for her but it’s not one that i would recommend or i don’t think anybody anybody would recommend for most people but she looks incredible it obviously works for her okay now we have one that actually breaks my heart like it makes me feel so awful like so so awful so again this is a two-parter and this is serious to me because this is something i’ve been dreading seeing online and that is an accident in which the ordinary aha’s peeling solution was used incorrectly i speak about this product so many times people get a bit twisted they think i think it’s a bad product it’s a very good product if used correctly and safely but what we see a lot of online is people using it very irresponsibly dripping it down their face using too much of it using it when they don’t really have to the video i’m about to show you is a perfect example of why it’s important for beauty gurus and brands to encourage beauty gurus to use products correctly and show them using their products correctly because people who aren’t wrapped up in the skincare world don’t know how to use these kind of products so they’re looking to beauty gurus for advice and guidance on how to use products when you’re dripping shit down your face dangerous stuff down your face and using tools that you are not supposed to use or products that you’re not supposed to use in conjunction with this product you’re teaching people the wrong way to do it and it leads to so many problems this is a whole journey this video it makes me feel awful but let’s watch hey guys so today i’m using this ordinary peeling solution with this um derma roller it’s got like 500 needles in it and apparently it helps serum absorb so let’s go for it okay so first i’m just going to roll my face and apparently you’re not supposed to make it bleed so i won’t do it as forcefully okay so i’ve now rolled and i do have a filter on but my face is quite red okay now i’m gonna try the peeling solution and i think it just says use it on your fingertips um so like this oh oh it’s quite thick ah shit it burns oh my gosh this really ow it’s really tingly oh my gosh guys this is proper tingling it’s really burning my lips okay i’m still rubbing it in okay guys now i’m gonna leave it on for an hour um and see if my skin gets clearer bye i just realized what he said i didn’t remember oh my god that last bit fuck fuck fuck okay if you okay okay no let’s just let’s just watch the next bit hang on oh hey guys i just want to say don’t use the ordinary peeling solution under dahmer ruler or leave it on for any longer than like 20 minutes because my face has gone bright red and my mom’s not home and i don’t really want to show you guys it um yeah see that redness above the mask like look how fucked his skin looks even just up there right where to start i guess this is a perfect example of why i i do think the brand has a responsibility the ordinary should be speaking up just release a video you have the budget or share someone’s video of how to properly use this product cassandra bankson has an amazing video about how to properly use this product um i’m just going to say this because i know my audience is a little bit older it ranges really like teens up to like older if you have a younger sibling a son a daughter who has this product please monitor their use of it i know that sounds really extreme watch how they’re using it do it with them do me but guide them through using this product or just take it the fuck away if they don’t need it it is it’s become a trending product when it really shouldn’t be this isn’t for everyone and it makes me so um uncomfortable seeing this kind of shit happen okay so first of all this product doesn’t need help penetrating the skin so you don’t want to be making holes in your skin in order to help this product penetrate it’s an acid it’s going to do a perfectly job of that itself the bha is oil soluble it’s going to go in you don’t need a bit to penetrate when you derma roll your face even just putting on your everyday moisturizer after could really really sting your skin so i dread to think the pain that he felt on his skin after doing that so yeah obviously his skin is fucked he left on for an hour i didn’t notice that’s what he said you’re not meant to leave this on for any more than 10 minutes absolute maximum absolute maximum five minutes i can manage about three it’s just a really i hate i don’t hate this product i just hate how it’s being used um derma rolling i used to use all the time but now i refuse to talk about it because i don’t want to encourage it um for me it did amazing stuff to my skin i do have to be honest um but i feel is being used very irresponsibly when you see these influencers using it with products like this using with glycolic peels using it with all sorts of potions after when you derma roll you’re meant to be very sanitary you’re meant to disinfect this every time you’re using it you’re not meant to buy five pound ones from amazon they’re also saying that the rolling tool does more harm than good and that you should be stamping if anything but really you should just be going to a dermatologist and having it done professionally if you want this done when you derma roll you’re meant to use your cleanser derma roll a hyaluronic acid serum if any and then the most basic moisturizer you could find you’re not meant to be using anything else otherwise because it could really really damage your skin videos like that upset me so much because you just wonder how many people how many younger people have actually done this to their skin all because they see that this is how it’s done online it pisses me off okay let’s take a look at this video i’ve not actually watched this one because it looks pretty short so okay i’m just gonna do a makeup okay so i think i was tagged in it because she was shaving her nose um i kind of get what she’s doing but also not really at all you can’t shave blackheads so that little thumbnail was a little bit misleading it kind of obviously made you think that she was going to shave off her blackheads i mean i guess what’s that what that is doing is shaving possibly those little nose hairs you know you get the really fine hairs that can look like blackheads um and also giving a bit of a exfoliation the light exfoliation with erasers but you can’t shave off blackheads if you want to get rid of blackheads use a bha yeah they’ll remove blackheads in the long term i really don’t have much to say about that obviously then it’s very like old style old clickbait instagram kind of thing um where people used to like do their makeup with shoes and stuff like that but other than that there’s nothing inherently wrong with that it just looks like she’s going to remove blackheads with and that’s not how it works so there we have it those are some beauty guru skincare mistakes or questionable um activities let me know what you think in the comments down below and follow me on tik tok um it’s the same as my instagram handle but that is it from me now guys i will see you next time you
