    SO EXCITED to see this! Thank you Susan and Dr. Chiu! I am so grateful that you are taking the time to educate us. I’ve learned a lot from this series. I actually do wear SPF - my bad for leaving it out! BUT I didn’t wear it for years, unless I was going to the beach. This 3 step routine you’ve suggested is perfect for me and my lifestyle right now! I’ll totally splurge on a great vitamin C and work on keeping my skin hydrated. Thank you again! I love you both 🙏🏻❤️

    Will these go away? OR are they permanent patches?

    Oh oh...I'm breast feeding and I've been using a product with retinol. I'm new to skincare and I had no idea. Damn it!!! I've been so careful with meds and foods, but didn't think about the face cream. I got a bad case of Melasma with both pregnancies, so after this last pregnancy I've been using the retinol for that. Ugh...I'm so pissed at myself right now.

    Great tips!!
    I have the same problem but have really oily acne prone skin. I know that age plays a factor as well but what can I do to eliminate the oil and large pores.???

    Hi there me again. Just wanted to add what do you think of this product Meladerm for melasma. Theres alot of people that said it got rid of there melasma. Its got really great ingredients in there that are good for that condition. Now I myself tried the PCA pigment get, but that product really burned me and irritated my skin alot. So I dont use that. Now Im thinking of giving this Meladerm a try, since it says its specifically for this condition. Let me know your opinion on it . Would really appreciate it. Thanks God Bless.

    Hi Susan and Dr Chiu. Thank you for this video, I have learned a lot from this channel. I would like to know what skincare routine you could suggest for someone who is 53 yo with tiny some blackheads on the nose, fine lines under eyes, dehydrate under eyes, and marionette lines. Please choose a routine with no Cerave and affordable prices. Thank you.

    Susan, i know you said you don't necessarily loooove The Ordinary, but you have recommended their products is the past. How would you feel about her using The Ordinary's L Ascorbic Acid Powder with a humenctant light using one of their hydrators or oils as a conductor. That way she'd get Vitamin C and moisture.

    I'm still learning but I have that powder and resveratrol/squalane serums, and I just wondered what you thought.

    Love y'all!

    Could you please look into the Kicks skincare line, especislly the vitamin c and its ingrefients? I think the serums are pretty affordable (if they are good ones) but I dont personally have enough knowledge to know if theyre worth the buy or not

    For melesma, i am using hydroquinone and also Neostrata pigment controller , after 2 weeks, let me say i definitely see a difference. As its recomended for a bit longer, i am hopeful.
