Consumers have a tough job trying to find their way through a sea of marketing mumbo jumbo, paid shout outs from content creators, and pointless fear pushed by the “natural is better” community.
The truth is, there isn’t a whole heck of a lot out there that is designed to steer you in the right direction. You may find some recommendations from peers or maybe an MD (who may not be well read in skin care outside of prescriptive problems), but really finding a source with solid information that isn’t trying to sell you product is close to zero.
This is precisely why I am able to make blog post like this. This is the truth based on science, not marketing, and if you put these steps into play, you will start having more “good skin days”.
Am I being a little melodramatic? Well maybe, but I’m making it my job to educate people on the importance of understanding products and how they work. There is a lot of misinformation working against us here and I’m making it my goal to bust these myths one by one.

Unexpected breakouts, rashes, maybe even tummy aches (from old lip products) can be attributed to old dirty make up, so here we go.
