When in doubt, YouTube it. At least, that's my approach on everything from how to jumpstart a car to what skincare products and techniques I should be using. Luckily, the latter is all over Youtube. Here are the best YouTube vlogger skincare routines and what you can learn from them.
Skin care isn't just a routine for these people, it's a ritual. While they make their money from their face, quality skincare is important for everyone. Taking good care of your skin, inside and out, will prevent premature aging (like fine lines and wrinkles) and protect you against dangers like extreme dry skin and skin cancer.
Good skin isn't about an every-once-and-a-while face mask or exfoliating scrub. It should be a consistent habit, with products you know work for your skin and a daily routine that you can maintain no matter where you are or what is going on. At the very least, a consistent moisturizing and sunscreen routine will protect your skin from harsh exposure and keep it looking and feeling soft.
Below are some of the best routines established by the most popular YouTube beauty and makeup vloggers. These product reviews and technique tips will have your skin looking great in no time.
