Episode 37: The Ultimate Guide to Skin Self Assessment, Part 2

Intro: In this episode we are continuing with our series on The Ultimate Guide to Skin Self Assessment where I have been breaking down the history of one's skin to better understand what has happened to it in the past. Today we are going to dive into the implications of a current skin routine. I give both professionals and non-professionals the tools and know-how to determine how successful a current skin care routine may or may not be for a given individual. From acids to retinols to cleaning products and even the water we drink, there are plenty of factors to consider when assessing someone's skin routine.

Listen in as I discuss how to do a skin assessment, what skin mapping is, and which popular skincare products can actually be harmful to the body.
