Yup, it's fun getting roped up in YouTube experiments. When it comes to your skin: use common sense, read up on ingredients and when in doubt, ask your esthetician. Because we need a license to be able to touch your skin.
How effective would a stain be on this surface? The same is true for our skin. Active ingredients in serums, moisturizers and creams can penetrate deeper and work better if they are applied to a clean surface. Cleansing your face is an important step in any regiment for healthy skin, as it will not only remove dirt, but will also help keep your skin's barrier function in tact. Over the course of the day, our skin accumulates not only sebum (the skin's own protective and lubricating oils), but also dirt, pollution, and don't forget that layer of makeup you put on. It is essential to loosen up this debris with a good cleanser and then wash it off with water before applying penetrating products that will help rejuvenate and regener...

Why? In the process of skin regeneration, skin cells move to the topmost layer of the skin and die off. Their accumulation leads to dull looking skin and clogged pores. Exfoliation helps the natural shedding process, and there are different ways to do that: physical or chemical. Physical exfoliation includes anything from using a wash cloth, brush (manual or electric) to scrubs and microdermabrasion. These physically remove dead skin cells in varying strength. Chemical exfoliation can be done with enzymes (think pineapple, pumpkin, papaya, ...), or Alpha - or Beta-Hydroxy-Acids (think glycolic, lactic, salicylic, ...). These dissolve the glue in between the dead cells, or help dissolve the keratin altogether. These can range fro...
Vitamins A, C and E can put you ahead of the curve in the skin game. Why? Vitamin A - retinoids - reduce wrinkles, fade brown spots, and smooth the skin. Apply at night and lay off if irritations occur. Vitamin C helps fight free radicals that trigger wrinkling and sagging, smoothes and firms skin and fades brown spots. Apply in the morning as Vitamin C has inherent sun protection. Vitamin E helps retain skin moisture, promotes healing and neutralizes damaging free radicals. Look for a serum or face oil as a boost to the daily skincare routine.
Just like your body, your skin regenerates in your sleep. So you want it to be clean of makeup, sweat, dirt and pollution. Before you go to bed, wash your face with warm water to open pores and loosen debris, then work your cleanser with gentle circular motions of your fingertips into your skin (don't forget the sides of your face and neck). Rinse the cleanser off completely and pat your face gently dry with a towel. Make this your evening ritual and save your face wipes for after gym workouts. Your future self will thank you. 💦☺️💦
