      ​@@AcinnnScience did become much more efficient in recent times due to easy access to research papers over the internet and also because of powerful computers (and more recently deep learning), but yeah, there's no way miracle medicine will appear only in ads and not in news articles or anything else. If something groundbreaking is discovered, you will probably hear about it from sources other than the manufacturer; for example, you've probably heard of ozempic or semaglutide, a medicine which decreases your appetite, and it sounds great when obesity is rising. I would argue that it's not an ideal solution to obesity, as it usually stems from bad dietary choices, but if the patient doesn't do anything about it (which is how you get to obesity in the first place), then cutting their appetite is probably the best solution.

    One of the biggest issues I had when I was in high school was hormonal acne. The worst thing about it was that every cream, gel, face wash, moisturizer, you name it, that my mom would buy me at the store, or my dermatologist prescribed me to use, did NOTHING because my issue wasn't solvable topically.
    It was so hard seeing all the ads that talked about these products that were supposed to fix my skin, and little did I know, none of them solved the problem I was facing.
    Now I'm a little older, my hormones have leveled out, and all I use is bar soap, a basic cream, and sunscreen and my skin has never looked better. Infuriating.

    • @freechips4468

      At what age did your hormonal acne start and end? I had acne in middle school but went away once I started using skin care. That worked until my senior year where I had just a complete breakout all year where nothing worked for me and just recently started to heal (slowly).

    • @Stardustkl
      @Stardustkl หลายเดือนก่อน +16

      The hormones are just making the skin more oily and prone to acne, so topical treatments can help if done effectively. But they can only help. No product is going to stop acne altogether or prevent it from getting worse during certain times of the month. The marketing saying that their products will fix or stop acne completely are an outright lie.

    Some retinoids are scientifically backed and FDA regulated. Adapalene (sometimes referred to as brand name Differin), is in fact FDA regulated and often sold in the skincare isle. I do however, personally stay away from retinol cosmetics, which are the versions not regulated. That and sunscreen are the only cosmetic drugs that have a robust body of evidence for anti-aging and acne.

    • @Stardustkl
      @Stardustkl หลายเดือนก่อน +16

      I second adaptalene. It was drastically effective for me. But you have to understand that it takes months for your skin to adjust to it. You have to very slowly build up to daily use. And it might make your acne worse originally because it will speed up acne that was developing. But after months of daily use, the results are great! I have much less acne now and most of my scars have faded.

    My only issue with this episode saying at the end is "all you need is sunscreen" is you do need to cleanse your skin. Now that can be with something as simple as a bar of soap. But you do need to wash your skin. Especially if you've putting sunscreen on it or if you're putting makeup on it. I would also say you probably should moisturize your skin. Now that moisturizer can be the cheapest dollar store cream there is. Now if you're ok with a little dryness from using that bar of soap, go for it, just soap and sunscreen. No need for the serums and all but you probably want soap

    I’ve had acne for over a decade now, and subsequently have been trying new skincare on a regular basis for a decade trying to get rid of it. My experience has been that salicylic acid does nothing for me, benzoyl peroxide sort of works but dries my skin out pretty bad, and moisturizer actually is important in that situation. The other thing I’ve discovered is that learning what the common ingredients in skincare products do and what research backs them up can help a lot in figuring out what products will work for you.

    My skin care staples: Rinse face with water in the AM, sunscreen, cleanse at night, apply cerave night cream, apply home made salt water to breakouts to disinfect when needed. Wear brimmed hats when outside for sun protection.

      Just like you I use the costco tubs of the cerave cream, have for years, it's freaking perfect all by itself. Noticed that sunscreen applied too soon after makes it pill up, but that's easy to avoid (just waiting like 20 mins prevents). One tub lasts me months, love that I'm not the only one who uses it as the main moisturizer!

    According to real dermatologists (skin doctors), using a face wash and a moisturizing cream twice a day (not more, because it's too much then and has a detrimental effect instead of a positive one) does actually help your facial skin. It helps with lessening/preventing acne, and it helps slow down aging a bit (IFAIK). So there is a reason to have a basic skin care. Oh and using regular soap on your facial skin is not recommended because it dries out your face too much because your facial skin is much skinnier compared to other parts of your skin.

    this is so true, personally the only “skincare” i do is a moisturiser, because my skin gets very dry and its irritating, and of course sunscreen.

    Almost no one talks about this but, one of the most common skin care scams are acne treatments.
    I've been living with acne problems since I was 13 and after deciding stop buying skin care solutions and clean my face only with water (not even soap) I've fixed this annoying problem. It's more about what you eat and how you sleep than this expensive skin care sets

    Really enjoyed the video but please do a video explaining what *is* the ‘correct’ way to clean and protect my face! You’ve told us what we’re putting on our face is useless but you haven’t given us an alternative to what does work aside from spf. What face soap do I use to clean my face that isn’t just useless chemicals, same for moisturiser? Does moisturiser even work? How *do* I keep my skin soft after stripping away the natural oils if not. What do dermatologists say and are they reliable? Where *can* I find reliable information? I would love to see a video where your team tests out a dermatologist approved skincare routine and the effects after a few weeks ❤

    Lab muffin Beauty Science is a great place to go to get objective skincare. Just because an ingredient is hard to understand does not mean that it doesn’t work. In fact, she has a whole video just on vitamin c. Doctorly is also a great resource that I advise checking out. Skincare is overwhelming, but with a little bit of knowledge, anyone can easily understand it.
    Edit: also, never listen to celebrities and don’t get L’Oréal. CeraVe is a pretty safe bet. Skincare CAN save your skin. Although sunscreen is extremely important. It’s definitely not the only thing you need.

  • @pucotini_fren

    My recommendation:
    Basic Skincare Routine: Cleanser (foaming for oily skin non-foaming or hydrating for dry skin), moisturizer, and SPF
    If you have certain skin conditions such as acne, consider something with an active ingredient like benzoyl peroxide. I have a 3 step skincare routine and it works great.

    If you are into Skincare/Beauty enough to have a multi-step skincare routine, you know that the clinical trial on the packaging means nothing. It’s on nearly every single product you buy. Looking at the actual ingredients and reviews across multiple sellers does actually work. Also, Sephora has an excellent return policy, so if after a couple of weeks a product isn’t working for me I just return it. It’s that simple. Skincare does work, but every product doesn’t work for everyone. If I slack on using my moisturizer and hyaluronic acid, the skin on my nose flakes off. Not everyone can slap on sunscreen and call it a day. A dermatologist really should have been consulted for this video

    I'm in my thirties and I didn't have anyone who taught me about makeup and skincare and all that growing up, so I never got into it. The most I've ever used, is the occasional face oil and sunscreen. And a body scrub in the shower. That's it, and my skin looks fine. I've never felt the need to buy into the whole skincare thing. I used to feel bad about it, but as I've gotten older, I've realised that the beauty industry is full of it.
