So if this is of interest You definitely should stay with me because I get asked so many times for my patients And if I go through YouTube, I just get it almost a heart attack if I see this, so, please please please Have a look and really don’t put these 5 things on your face So, my name is Dr. Liv Kraemer everybody’s calling me Dr. Liv who doesn’t know me I’m a dermatologist practicing here in Zurich and traveling all around the world for my patients and giving talks and seminars and I love Everything about skin care skin care ingredients and a skin food. So if this is …. topics of your…you are interested in you definitely should stick with me and don’t forget to Put the notification bell in order to get notified if I’m posting a new video and follow me on my Instagram Be a friend of Instagram with me or follow me on my Insta Stories…as i try to post as much as I can And today it’s about the five most common skin care Things mistakes you never should do or 5 things you never should put on your face Lets start about with Number 1 Lemons, okay guys lemons are great for eating where lemons are great for drinking So if you put a little bit fresh lemon in your water Traveling around or putting it in a warm water drinking in the morning. Fantastic. Great but Lemons have nothing to do on your face. So you ask yourself? Why? Lemons, everybody thinks oh, it’s it’s nature. It’s great. So sorry to say but nature is chemistry and physics and Physics and chemistry is nature, so nature wouldn’t exist without chemistry and physics So let’s look closer on lemons so lemons, of course a citric acid So if you look at the pH of you remember your chemistry lessons You remember the pH scale? I think I put a little bit was drawing a little bit I thought I’d make it a little bit easy for you So the scale right zero is Acid…..Base is 14 So we have a huge range and it’s not linear as lovely written, but let’s start go to Mathematic into it. Let’s make it very basics. Okay, so neutral is seven So your skin pH is 4 to 4.5….So a little bit more acid but citric acid lemons are very very low in pH it’s almost 2 And the problem is because you’re not buffering with noting else just citric acid and putting it on and unfortunately Leaving it on for a longer time and not just this your if you go outside even if the Sun is not shining Sun is always shining. Otherwise, it’s night guys. It’s physics. Okay. So as soon as you go out you actually Harming your skin you can get a burn you can get hyperpigmentation You can get so many more bad things out of putting lemons on your face Rather than having something good out of it so if we dermatologists talk about acids and food acids everything it is something a Controlled assets in a perfect. Perfect Solution serum cream it is not just the pure acid So putting lemons on your face. It’s a big NO-NO-NO You damage your skin you get Pigmentation on your skin believe me, so please stop doing this eat it drink it but stop putting it on your face Number 2 is actually vaseline vaseline So this is great for having very dry skin on your hands putting it on but vaseline is a covering agent, right and You remember I love to draw all my patients patients who is listening to me You have to smile everybody who saw my other videos will hopefully smile as well and because today it’s about alot of talk I said, okay. Let’s draw a little bit before I had My Skincare Barrier system. So the first layer of the skin looks like a cobblestone layer right like a cobblestone wall And it’s everything well sealed and you have you beautiful bacteria. So actually I always thought to my patients you are never alone Why because you have Bacteria’s and fungus’s on your skin, they love you you love them So it’s a kind of about a system which is pretty good and a kind of in balance and Every time we do something with the skin without knowledge, we may be shifting this kind of balance and if we shifting certain bacteria’s certain fungus can over grow on top and making you suffering from skin problems, so Let’s go back to vaseline vaseline is something very fatty, right? It’s really a covering agent almost so Occlusive, we say what do we mean with this we making it kind of a glass house on top Just think about you have Bacteria’s up there and you’re covering them, right? So what’s happening same as in real life if there is a kind of a glasses with a lot of people More people are coming and they’re making parties. So the picture growing growing growing underneath and you making actually more pimples because you give them a Possibility to grow underneath. So if you we have dry skin not the skin Would you feel flaky or kind of dries because there’s dead skin? So we talk about weally dry cracky excimer Then even there better agents and basil and to put on but definitely not vaseline on a skin which tends to get redness which can tends to Acne, because with the coverage You are Actually heating up redness becomes more visible and you get more pimples so Vaseline a big NO-NO…..if you have acne prone skin or Actually skin who tends to get red or if you know the word rosacea if you have the tendency for rosacea number 3 I Always get a heart attack if I see baking soda is great for skin put it on put it that it will do everything to your skin Okay, the only thing to does for your skin, it’s harming it. So everybody thinks baking soda is so natural again Nature is chemistry and physics and physics and chemistry is nature. So baking soda Exactly, so it does make sense to actually sit in the chemistry lesson and listen, so it is actually Alkaline What does it mean? So it makes its shifting the pH of your skin? Again, let’s have a look on the pH scale. Right? And as I said in the beginning the skin’s pH is more acid So if we’re switching it more to a pH of 8 or 9 which actually so baking soda dissolved in water become – Exactly, you’re shifting the pH to a more alkaline solution and which makes the skin getting imbalance because why our skin is so kind of fantastic Because the pH is lower So this let grow certain bacterial fragrances because it has that we have a lot of fungus and bacteria on our skin They love us and we love them and we love this kind of balance. But as soon as you shifting it To another side too much without knowing why doing it exactly You imbalance your scale so actually suddenly different bacteria can actually over grow and the certain bacteria would not be killed and your water loss will actually increase so what I want to say baking soda is Something was supposed to be in your kitchen, but please definitely not on your skin So a big big NO-GO for baking soda Number 4 toothpaste toothpaste is great for exactly brushing your teeth But nothing to put on a pimple or actually on the face why we dermatologists getting heart attacks Why because people are coming with we call it dermatitis. Something was irritating the skin something was making more pigmentation Something would gives you redness is something would really imbalance your skin So, do you know really what toothpaste is especially? Calcium Carbonate so Calcium Carbonate is something an abrasive So it’s actually to take out the paque…..You don’t want to take something off your skin abrasive secondly inside and sodium lauryl sulfate which makes actually is very blubbry This is the main cause of irritations of your skin There’s most of the time spearmint pepper menthol a mental inside and this is what gives your skin a Really a hard time particular if you’re going outside Because in combination with the Sun and believe me Sun is always shining because Dave is Sun night. There’s no Sun So what do I mean is? Exactly in combination with a high UV you made these ingredients Irritate your skin even more So what happens is you get even more problems you getting in so we call it contact dermatitis and Cheilitis what I mean? It’s kind of inflammation around the mouth because this is most time people putting it around if they have pimples So please toothpaste is something for your teeth Nothing for your skin Okay, please no toothpaste on your skin not on a pimple. It’s not the right way to dry something out Forget it really don’t do it number 5 oils. Oils are wonderful for eating. So if you have seen my video about Skin food you should have a look on it so I explaining that maybe sesame oil is great because it has unsaturated fat, but this is for digestion But putting oil on your face will actually cause more breakouts and cause more redness if you have the tendency of for example Rosacea…Why…? So, just imagine as I always say and My cobblestone layers my cobblestone wall the upper layer with Bacteria on top, and if you have a tendency of certain bacterial to overgrowth Acne Bacteria Propionis if you put an oil on top you’re making a closure So all the bacterias can make party underneath and another closure You also heating up and the redness becomes more visible so what you do with oil you just make a coverage so This is a No No Go Go. No Go so never go to bed with oil on your face Why as I said you get more pimples because you’re covering it up so putting oil on the hair but never go to bed with this and if you have a tendency of acne because then it actually Comes around and you breaking out here round So oils never should be applied from here to the top from here On top so never on the face and particular coconut oil and no oils from the kitchen because you really really break out and You really if you have the tendency redness and rosacea you even make you make it even worse So please no oils on the face. I mean you can remove your makeup with the oil Of course, this is actually good way because fat we it gets removed my fat But then make sure that we need you clean your face not just with water, but actually with a good cleanser Ok So I hope it helped and I hope you listen to me at least with these five things not to put on Your face and there will be a couple of you said yeah, but it worked for me Okay, guys, it is like a Swiss watch you have a couple of wheels moving before the big hand is moving So what I mean, if for one of you guys have helped great, this is luck but if you look long term You really want to know the wheels, which don’t harm your face and we’re talking about long term things You should avoid because it has a scientific background. So please never Lemons, never Veselin never soda baking soda, never ever toothpaste and no oils kitchen oils on the face particular not if you have the tendency for breaking out or ever wear for acne and rosacea redness So I hope it helped because I really felt like talking about these topics because I saw so many YouTube videos and really get me a heart attack if people talking about this without scientific background and and Actually a patient into my office just came and made a funny kind of a mixture of different home residues and I almost get a heart attack because she still got Acne And Explaining it’s very important understanding what you choose even more know what you’re doing.
