Basic Products for Skincare

Basic Products for Skincare

Ali Abdaal, a former doctor, now a Youtube influencer, shared the basics:

  • Moisturiser: whose purpose is to rehydrate our skin & keeps the skin barrier intact. 2 times a day, ideally after the shower. 
  • Sunscreen: stop genetic mutations caused by sun exposure. Go for a large spectrum (UV-A & UV-B) with a high SPF (30 or 50).
  • Retinoid: anti-aging miracle (minimise wrinkles, acne etc) by promoting growth of colagen. Not to be confused with retinoids, a weaker version.
  • Cleanser: Better than water for cleaning up your face. Go with one with hyaluronic acid & cermaides.

There are moisturisers with sunscreen protection, like 2 in 1. 

In the evening:

  • Cleanse the face again
  • Apply retonid cream ... give a couple minutes to settle in.
  • Apply moisturiser cream. 

Voila! This basic routine should help keep your skin younger. It gives 90+% of the benefits of all the cutting-edge methods.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
