Pro tip: Always remember that the needs of your skin may be different from your favorite Youtuber. So don’t be surprised if some of the products that they use don’t really work on you. That doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you! Our skin responds to various treatments differently. The best course of action is to talk to your dermatologist first! Find out which products best suits your skin, what allergies you may have, and what sort of routine you should do to get that healthy and clean skin.
Until next time!
