When you think of YouTube beauty, you probably have ideas of makeup and tutorials. There may be a round-up or review thrown-in, too, but it's almost always makeup. If you're a skin care lover, though, don't worry. These 8 skin care YouTube channels are the answer to all of your serum, essence, and ampoule questions. Whether you're curious about the science behind an acid or just want to know how a certain product performs, beauty YouTube is more than just makeup.
The truth is that skin care may actually be more complicated than makeup, at least when it comes to how to use products. Like with makeup, you need to take your own skin type into consideration, but unlike makeup, mixing products or using the wrong ones could impact your face in a way that won't just wash off with a cleanser.
Plus, skin care is rather complicated. From terms like skip care and products called ampoules and mentions of putting acids on your face, it can be intimidating. Sometimes, you just need someone to walk you through what it all means and how you can get (or keep) your skin in tip top shape.
If you've been looking to expand your skin care routine, or just start one, these skin care YouTube channels will help you figure out where to start.
If you want to know something about a product, there's a good chance that Gothamista, aka Renee, has a video about it. Whether you're looking for great affordable skin care or wondering if that Drunk Elephant product is actually worth the splurge, Renee will let you know.
