Podcast 38: Are your skincare’s ingredients actually helping your skin?

Let’s be honest there are literally thousands of skincare brands out there vying for your attention. What seems to stand out are marketing slogans people can attach to on an emotional level.

Here’s one I heard through a third person, “herbs in skincare don’t actually have any impact on the skin”.
