Here’s my second video. It’s based on my Purging vs Breakouts post, which I got a lot of questions on – I’m hoping that this video makes things a bit clearer if you’re trying to work out if you’re purging or breaking out from a new product! In it I cover:
- the science behind purging and breakouts
- tips on working out if you’re purging or breaking out
- some ways of making the purging process less severe
(Yes, right after I edited this photo and realised how bad my eye wrinkles were, I started using anti-aging peptides and sunscreen around my eyes religiously.)
Here’s a handy, Pinterest-friendly summary of the key points for differentiating between purging and regular breakouts. These rules aren’t hard and fast, and the lists of product types are really not exhaustive at all. There’s a fair bit of guesswork required to figure out what’s going on too. But hopefully it helps!
Again, if you have suggestions for future videos or any other suggestions in general, I’d love to know! And if you’ve subscribed already and given me feedback on my last video, thank you so much – I really appreciate it, and I read every single suggestion. You can probably see how I’ve implemented some improvements already, like cleaning up the captions and getting a little closer to the camera.
I’m getting a little more used to recording and editing videos, and I’ve just acquired some new video editing software that will work a bit better than the one I’m using now, so the next episode should be higher quality… in theory. I’m hoping the camera will be a bit less shaky when I pan and stuff! We’ll see…
I think I’ve decided on what to cover in my next video, and it’s going to be a bit ranty. I’m pretty excited about it!
