What’s your biggest skincare regret?
    Commented 11 months ago
    Not doing my research sooner. I just relied on what the ladies at Nordstrom and Bloomingdales told me to use. A lot of it irritated my skin. I feel a lot more empowered now that I'm actually looking into what works for my skin and why.

    Keep learning about what works for you. You’re the expert on your skin.

    My biggest skincare regret is probably spending too much money on products that didn't have any scientific backing. I consider it money wasted. Now, I'm much more careful to do my research and only really invest my money on ingredients that are proven.

    As consumers become more and better educated, baseless marketing claims fall on deaf ears. I’m glad you’re finding products that work for you!

    Definitely!

    Hmm I have quite a few regrets, but one of mine would be not investing in exfoliating properly. I think it really didn't help that I was using harsh physical exfoliators that were probably causing more irritation to my skin than anything else. Once I found chemical exfoliators, I had to learn which ones work for me (story for 'nother time, phew) but it really helped clear up my skin.

    I flat out did not know skincare and would blindly buy products that were recommended by my favorite youtubers. I ended up spending wayyyy too much money for products that weren't right for me. But at least now I've learned trial by fire, and I can help others avoid the same mistake lol.

    Yeah! It bees that way sometimes. I’m glad you’re getting to know your skin.

    Washing my face three times everyday. Once in the morning, once after working out, once at night. I did a foam cleanser all three times. Needless to say, my skin was not happy

    Definitely. If you do it well, once is enough :)

    not double cleansing sooner. it's a concept I lived without for until 3 years ago. been a total gamechanger, I suspect I wasn't cleansing properly before then which caused a whole host of troubles with my skin.

    It’s nice when we find something so beneficial to our skin. Gamechangers are good.

    Cleansing is sooo important!! My skin also changed when I started double cleansing.
    Commented 11 months ago
    I agree. Double cleansing is so important, definitely one of the most important tenants of asian beauty philosophy.

    Wasting my money on cutesy Tony Moly (k-beauty brand) products :( they were super fragrant and not quality skincare. Blegh.

    Aww, I totes understand.

    All the clean & clear products I used to use... SMH.....lol But also, I used to be pretty harsh with my skin! Scrubbing it hard and rubbing products into my skin. I'm much more gentle with my skin now.

    I’m glad to hear you’re gentler now!
    Commented 11 months ago
    This. They should really teach you how to take care of your skin in school, it's actually pretty basic stuff. Instead I went out and bought products thinking higher concentration of something is always better. I was super harsh to my skin, lol.

    Finance 101 and Skincare 101 are life skills.

    LOL! So true.

    Ugh, main one is rubbing lemon slices on my face one summer to try and get rid of freckles. It stung soooo much and my skin was temporarily damaged for weeks after!

    Mine: not finding P50 sooner! I love it so very much.
    Commented 11 months ago
    👀 am I the only one who doesn't know what P50 is??
    • Post Owner
    Commented 11 months ago
    P50 is a cult chemical exfoliant manufactured by a French company, Biologique Recherche. It works wonders to produce a “lit from within glow” to skin. Caroline Hirons reviews it on YouTube. It’s expensive but worth every penny.
    Commented 11 months ago
    So it's worth the hype, then? :D why do you like this compared to other exfoliating toners?
    • Post Owner
    Commented 11 months ago
    It’s just that good and Caroline Hirons said the same. My skin has never looked better.
