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.
That really is why I started this website. While I am more than happy to accept product for consideration, it is in my policy to not take money for product placement. I have quite literally set up this website with a business structure designed to keep an arms distance away from individual brands and companies with the intention of always keeping face.
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”.
