Thank you to Murad for sponsoring this video!

I see patients making the same mistakes with their skin care over and over. Today I decided to pull together a list of the most common skincare mistakes I see from them, covering a wide range of dermatological issues. We discuss things like popping pimples, charcoal masks, skincare trends, hydration, moisturizer, shaving, alcohol based products, sweat, pore health, sunscreen and SPF, exfoliating scrubs, and so much more. Have you made any of these skin care mistakes, or maybe you’ve found a treatment plan that works right for you? Let me know in the comments!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

I’m actually a bit upset about how to did the “knowledge” portion as you (and/or your editors) clearly did not watch the “tik tok” videos that were supposedly giving us bad skin care advice. The second out of the 3 was a clip of James Welsh who is always posting videos to correct the bad advice for skin care given on platforms like tik tok. In fact the clip use was a video him using a product that has become big on social media ads to show his audience NOT to use the product. But now you presented him to your audience as an influencer who does the harm he works so hard to protect his audience from. If anybody watching this video is interested in learning about skin care I do recommend his channel

I noticed that bee propolis works best for minor injuries and cuts. DOn't yell at me, that just works very fine for me. It's a solution amde by a beekeeper friend of mine and it contains alcohol, so it's liquid, also stains a lot, but it is excellent for minor wounds!

My mom told me to put peroxide on my tongue for kanker sores... I have no idea why. I also have had issues with part of my arm, but when I aksed my doctor about it, she said she'd refer me to a dermatologist, but we have a shortage of doctors, especially specialists, so it's been a few years and I haven't seen anyone.

Picking skin: I have a bad problem where I’ll pick at cuticle peels or fidget with my moles. Probably a result of my anxiety issues. So, personally, I use my Transformers as a hand-busier. It’s mentally calming to me to work them back and forth.

@green pencil BFUP I'm in my early teens. My mom does this a lot less now, mostly because I've started putting more effort into getting her to stop, but there's still the occasional times I have to slip my way out of her grasp. It's not like she is effective at holding me in place, more that her persistence is annoying.

talked about how popping pimples are bad ya i know but it feels better when it's popped, no pain anymore, and afraid the pimple would turn into some kind of bumps that is itchy and can't do anything about. for some people, can pimples turn into something if it's left alone? ;-;

The best Skincare hack is to control what you put in your mouth! you skin is a reflection of what you dump internally! Stop eating greasy food & sugar and see how your skin glows! Ask your patients what they're eating on a day to day basis and there's your answer! Oh wait Murad won't sponsor the video!

When I pop pimples, I make sure I don't touch anywhere else and absorb all the liquid with some cotton buds and wash my hands immediately after.. I don't have any scars left over or have breakouts after either.. is it ok if I still pop them?😅 Coz they are so painful 😣

I sweat very easily but often it's when I'm in the middle of the work day. Obviously I can't just abandon my work for 15-20 minutes to cool off and get dry and change my clothes every time it happens, and I often end up with very itchy skin, which could be a fungal infection. I have no idea what to do about that, do you have any tips?

Can confirm the acne scars thing, used to get spots around my lips (not cold sores) when I was a teenager and popped them because I was embarrassed but now my lip line is really not defined because of the scarring (it's not noticeable but makes using lipstick hard)

Okay about hot showers. I have eczema, not super bad but it does pop up now and again. It's just like in-laws, shows up at the worst possible time, every second it's there is an eternity too long, and, you are down right giddy once it's gone. Anyways, maybe I'm a psychopath, but I love really hot showers and me personally I found that really hot water helps alleviate the itchiness of my eczema. That's just my experience, maybe my skin is weird.

I can say from experience, don't pick your arms and skin guys, especially when you have keratin plugs. It's fun to squish them out but its not worth it in the long terms. It just leaves scars, bumps, and leaving you feeling sore around the area for the next day or so.
