A minority of people prefer skin care facts to marketing hype

Factual and honest skin care information is never glamourous nor seductive, which is why the majority like glitzy marketing hype from big name cosmetic companies or their eager (but uninformed) proxies 🙂 Are you one of the MINORITY?

This is from the SkinCareTV channel on YouTube – comments on the video The BEST sequence of Applying Skin Care Products https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVR-MBO9QQQ :

THIS IS DEDICATED TO ALL OF US WHO ARE THE MINORITY IN THE WORLD OF SKIN CARE!

The best sequence of skin care applications

1. Cleanse first – only at night, and only with cool water. If you wear a lot of makeup, wipe the surface makeup off with a kleenex tissue, and then use an oil based cleanser.

2. Exfoliate – only at night, and only with cool water.  Use an appropriate exfoliator (enzyme or AHA) for your skin type. NO SCRUBS OR BRUSHES – EVER!

3. Leave on products are sequenced based on their viscosity – watery type products go on before gel-like products, then lotions, then creams (they are thicker than lotions).

4. Antioxidants and anti aging serums go on before moisturizer.

5. Sunscreen goes on AFTER moisturizer. Sunscreen should be applied EVERY morning. Only inorganic (mineral) sunscreens must be used.

6. Makeup goes on last.

I BELIEVE THAT EFFECTIVE SKIN CARE
REQUIRES THE STUDY OF COSMETIC INGREDIENTS AND THE UNDERSTANDING OF HOW
THEY WILL AFFECT YOUR SKIN.

My blog will cover the science behind skincare and not the marketing hype that the industry is known for. I have studied chemistry and cosmetic ingredients and thus approach the care of the skin from the angle of what can be ‘realistic’ in terms of the potential for any products to deliver results.

I have created videos that are available for viewing on the SkinCareTV channel of YouTube. They cover all aspects of skin care and skin conditions (Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin, Aging Skin, Sun Damaged Skin) as well as the essential skin care categories of Facial Cleansers, Facial Exfoliators, Antioxidants for the skin, Treatments and Serums for specific skin conditions, Facial Moisturizers, Eye Treatments and Sunscreens.

All of the products at the online shop are from companies that have publicly stated that they do not test on animals. Animal cruelty free skin care is a cornerstone to the beliefs and practices of Andrew Scoular, Blue Turtle Spa and SkinCareTV. A percentage of revenue is donated to
PETA (People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals) – because we believe in cruelty free skin and
body care, and the loving care of all animals,
Physicians Committee For
Responsible Medicine
– because we can have advancements in
health care without cruelty to animals,
Sea Turtle
Restoration Project

– because turtles can live to be 120 years old,
Sea Shepherd
Conservation Society

– because sea animals deserve our protection,
Southern
Poverty Law Center

– because hate is a 4-letter word, so let’s
rather teach
tolerance and let everyone live with dignity and respect.
