Cammie Scott’s Skin Care Routine feat. NEW Bliss Products | CVS Pharmacy


– Hey guys, it’s Cammie. Welcome back to my channel. It is no surprise that I
am obsessed with skin care. Today I am going to be
sharing with you guys the information I have gathered since birth (chuckles) until now. My mom is actually a licensed esthetician, although she does focus on hair now, she is qualified to do
facials and skin care, so I feel like I’ve
grown up just constantly being taught things about skin care without even realizing it. First up, you guys know
I have been partnering with CVS for quite some time now, and I have another exciting
announcement for you all. CVS now carries Bliss products, and I am so so thrilled for this because not only are
the products incredible and amazing at such a great price point, most importantly, they
are all cruelty-free, and the majority of them are vegan. I am constantly so
impressed by how many brands are taking the initiative
to become cruelty-free and including vegan
ingredients in their products. It is so important and I feel
like these big, big brands, not only Bliss, but CVS for carrying them, are realizing how important this is, not just for us and our bodies and the things that we’re putting in it, but for our environment and
for the future of the world. I’m not gonna go on and on
today about being vegan, but I’m really pumped about this. I’m gonna share a bunch of my
favorite products from them, while giving you guys just
some insight on skin care. So hopefully, you’ll have some knowledge and know how to treat your skin
better and know what to use, when to use it, what to
mix, what not to mix, and yeah, let’s get into it! First and foremost, you
need to know what type of skin you have in order
to properly treat it. There’s four main skin
types, you have normal, dry, oily, and like myself, combination. If you’re not sure what skin type you are, just take a look in the mirror and assess what (chuckles) you’re workin’ with. For me, I have combination,
so I can dry around my mouth, and in my cheeks, and even
sometimes on my forehead, but I stay relatively oily in my T-zone. So I’ll get oil on my
forehead, down my nose, on the sides of my nose and my chin. This is also where
you’ll see larger pores, blackheads, whiteheads, all that fun stuff that the oil brings. If you have oily skin, you’re gonna notice this kind of issue that I have with my
T-zone all over your face, and with dry, you will
notice, like I said, my dryness on the outside of my face, you’ll notice that all over your face. And it doesn’t mean it’s very extreme, it just means your skin leans towards either being dry or oily
or somewhere in the middle. And if you’re blessed
with the normal skin, which I feel like is not normal, because I don’t think the majority of people have this skin type, you’re just gonna have kind of
the perfect balance of oils, and it’s making your skin
supple and nice and glowy, but it’s not causing your pores to clog and have excessive oil. You may think you already
know what skin type you have, but you’re going to want to
reassess this occasionally because it’s going to change with age and even with the seasons. My skin, personally, has dried out more and more and more every single year. I used to be very oily
as a teen, as most are, and then with adulthood, I’ve
gotten a bit more dried out, again, as most people do. Now that we’ve assessed our skin type, we’re gonna wanna look at any problems. This could include uneven
skin tone or texture, sensitivity, being acne-prone,
age spot, wrinkles, any really unwanted things, pretty much. Knowing this information about yourself is going to help you cater
your skin care routine to your specific type of skin
and the needs that you have. By knowing your specific skin type and any problems we may have, we now can personalize our skin
care for our specific needs. So we’ll know what products to use, when to use ’em, how often to use them, and what to mix ’em with. Regardless of skin type or skin problem, everyone needs to know the
proper way to layer products. Now you don’t need to have a
10,000-step skin care routine. You can if you want to, like me. You absolutely don’t have to, but you should know the proper
order of using products. You always wanna go from thin to thick or light to heavy products. Your thinner products are going to sink deeper into the skin, so if you put on a thicker product first, you essentially create a barrier, so then the thinner product is just going to sit on top of the thick product, and then not penetrate
into your skin whatsoever, essentially wasting your time and your money, and nobody wants that. So the scale is gonna start
from your hyaluronic acids and working its way up to your oils. Also, speaking of hyaluronic acid, ’cause I feel like it’s
such a big buzzword in the skin care and the
beauty community right now, but a lot of people don’t
actually know what it is. Your body naturally
produces hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000
times its weight in water. If you’re a dry bitch like me, this is an incredible incredible thing. But it’s also really incredible
even if you have oily skin. Just because you have oily skin does not mean you don’t
need to moisturize. I feel like a lot of people
gets confused with this and think, oh, if I’m
producing a lot of oil already, I don’t need any more moisture, I just need to dry out, dry out, dry out. But often times, when we
overly dry out our skin, our bodies just wanna
produce more and more oil to combat that, so virtually, you’re doing the opposite
of what you really wanna do. And on the flip side,
if you have dry skin, that doesn’t mean you
don’t have to exfoliate. A good example of this is
when you have a sunburn, I know I was guilty of
it when I was younger, instead of exfoliating and getting rid of the dry peeling skin, I would just moisturize
moisturize moisturize, throw aloe on nonstop, hoping
that somehow that dry skin would be converted into
nice healthy new skin. I hate to break it to you guys, dead skin cells can’t be reborn. You need to get rid of
those dead skin cells so that the healthy skin
underneath can emerge. So let’s work our way
through a skin care routine, and I am going to share
some of the products from Bliss with you guys, and show you what you should
and you shouldn’t mix, and when to use them. So in the morning, the rule of thumb is to start with your cleansers, toners, serums or spot treatments, moisturizers, eye creams, and SPF. And at night, you’ll do cleanser, exfoliator, toner, serum, moisturizer oil, and then your eye cream. For me personally, I
don’t have a very long morning skin care routine. Because I have sensitive skin, I don’t like to mess with
it when it doesn’t need it. I typically use a night cream or an oil, so in the morning I
still have a little bit remaining residue from that on my skin, so I just like to take some warm water, splash it over my face,
or take a warm washcloth and gently rub off any
of that excess product from the evening, and then
just put on my moisturizer. But again, it’s all about what
your specific skin type is. Sensitivity rolls over everything when it comes to my skin care routine. So getting into the cleansers. Now, I am very guilty of loving a good makeup wipe. I think that they can be so wonderful and such a great thing
within your makeup routine, whether you have on really heavy makeup and you just wanna do a quick rubdown prior to washing your face, or sometimes you’re just feeling lazy. It should never be the only way
you are cleansing your face. I also for me, again, sensitivity
rules over everything, have such an issue with being too rough with a makeup wipe to
really get everything off, and then it irritates my skin. A lot of times you also
are kind of just pressing the makeup into your skin more, ’cause you’re just not
fully removing everything. I really do like these
makeup removers from Bliss, because they’re oil-free
and they have chamomile, so they aren’t aggressive on my skin. It is really soothing and nice, so I love this as a first step, or if I’m having a night when I’m lazy, but just don’t make it a habit of only cleansing with wipes all the time. You are really just gonna
be pushing so much dirt and oil into your skin,
and that’s, it’s nasty. So what I prefer to use is an oil cleanser or a jelly cleanser, something you’re going to use on dry skin and really break down any
impurities on your skin, whether it be makeup,
dirt, oil, all of that. Bliss has a Makeup Melt, it’s a dry/wet gentle jelly
cleanser with rose flower, so it is extremely,
extremely gentle on the skin, you don’t have to worry
about it irritating, and it is going to break
down all of that makeup, so that you can just wipe it
away with a warm washcloth. I highly highly highly recommend looking into a jelly or oil cleanser, something that is going to fully break down everything on your skin, and use the makeup wipes sparingly. Let’s get into my
second-favorite skin care step. Nothing will ever compare to moisturizing, but I do love a good exfoliator. So like I said, the common misconception of if you have dry skin, you
shouldn’t be exfoliating, (imitates horn) it is
fully, fully debunked. It is so important to exfoliate, no matter what type of skin you have, because if you don’t get rid
of those dead skin cells, it is a lot more
difficult for the products that you’re putting on your skin to penetrate past that barrier. So in the evening, once
your skin is fully cleansed from all of the nasties of the
day, it is time to exfoliate. But there are a few rules
when it comes to exfoliating, because the only thing
worse than not exfoliating is over-exfoliating. There are a few ways
you can over-exfoliate. More obviously would be by
doing it too often or too rough. If you don’t have that
layer of dead skin cells that really need
rejuvenated and wiped away, you’re going to be harming
healthy, fresh, new skin cells. And that’s going to irritate
the crap out of your skin and cause all sorts of problems. So depending on your skin type, I would recommend only exfoliating two to three times a week
if you’re more sensitive, and some people can definitely get away with doing it more often. I prefer to keep it to a minimal. And the less obvious
way of over-exfoliating is by combining the wrong things, so there’s two types of exfoliants. You have your chemical exfoliants, and your physical exfoliants. Physical exfoliants are gonna be anything from using a
washcloth or a loofah, or any product that
has little beads in it. And then your chemical exfoliants are gonna be things that have stuff like glycolic acid in
it, microdermabrasion, AHA, BHAs, look for
those type of buzzwords. Quick little science
rundown on AHAs and BHAs. AHAs are alpha hydroxy acids, and BHAs are beta hydroxy,
or salicylic acids. They are both chemical exfoliants that you put onto the skin and leave on, and they then break down the bond holding your dead skin
cells onto the surface. AHAs work on the skin’s
surface and are water soluble, and BHAs work on the skin’s
surface and in the pores, and are oil soluble. AHAs you’re going to want to
use on normal to dry skin, and BHAs you’re gonna wanna
use on normal to oily skin, but you can also combine the two together. There’s a lot of information there, so we’re gonna move on for now. If you would like more
information on this, let me know, send me some questions and I’ll (chuckles) try to answer them. If you combine these chemical exfoliants with a physical exfoliant, it’s just gonna be doing too much, and actually damage your skin,
as opposed to helping it. So let’s talk about the exfoliant
products that Bliss has. There’s a Pore Patrol Daily Warming Scrub with black volcanic sand, and the That’s Incredi-Peel
Glycolic Resurfacing Pads to Smooth & Brighten. Now, I can see how it could be enticing to use both of these together. I of course wanna smooth and brighten, but I also want pore patrol, heck yeah, I wanna get rid of all these
blackheads all up in my pores. But, there is glycolic
acid in these peels, which, pop quiz, if you’ve
been paying attention is? An AHA, so if you combine the two, you’re essentially doing
a chemical exfoliant with a physical exfoliant,
and that’s no good. So you’re gonna wanna alternate
between the two of these. Just don’t use them on the same night, and you’ll be good to go. Another hot ticket item right
now in skin care is vitamin C. It does (giggles) pretty much everything that you would want. It brightens, it evens skin tone, it reduces appearance of
scars, you name it, it does it. It’s fricking fantastic. But, you don’t wanna combine vitamin C with your AHAs and BHAs, and this is all because
of the perfect pH balance we try to maintain in our skin. Your pH is the acidity level in your skin, and because AHAs and BHAs can be so harsh, they work at about a pH
of a three or a four. So if you then go use your vitamin C, virtually it just cancels
out any of the benefits, ’cause it’s not at the correct pH level, and again, you’re wasting money, you’re wasting time,
and it’s just useless. But no worries, just make sure
you’re using your vitamin C in the daytime when
you’re not exfoliating, or on a night you’re
not exfoliating either. And this is why you often see
vitamin C in a daytime serum. So speaking of the vitamin C, it is in the Bliss Ex-glow-sion radiance-boosting eye cream, which is great ’cause as I mentioned, it has a brightening property which we all are constantly striving
for under our eyes. And you actually shouldn’t
run into any problems using this product with
any of your exfoliants because in reality, you
shouldn’t be exfoliating right under your eye. This area is so delicate, you
have to be gentle with it, even when applying your products, you wanna take your ring fingers or even your pinkies and just
lightly dab in that product, because it is so thin and so delicate. And on to my favorite favorite thing in skin care, the moisturizers. So, I have loads and
loads of options here. I’m just gonna run
through them and explain when the best time is
to use these products. Let’s start with the Mighty Marshmallow Bright
& Radiant Whipped Mask. It says that it’s airy and whipped, it has a brightening boost, and it delivers a surge of hydration to instantly reveal a new luminosity, which you might think would be perfect after using your harsh chemicals
to balance back that pH, you just stripped it with your cleansers, you stripped it with your AHAs and BHAs, and you wanna replenish it
with a revitalizing mask. But, you wanna look that this
does have vitamin C in it. So it’s not gonna cause any problems, I’m sure it will do the
job, it’s gonna moisturize, but do you really wanna
waste your vitamin C when you’re not really gonna be getting the benefits from it, when
your pH is so out of whack? Luckily, this product isn’t too expensive, but if you just buy a vitamin
C oil, it is extremely pricey. So I say, save this one for another time, and let’s focus on something else. I would probably go with the What a Melon Reviving &
De-stressing Overnight Mask. Typically you’re
exfoliating at night anyway, so if you apply this mask overnight, it’s gonna have time to kind
of balance everything back out, soak in and absorb those moisturizers that you’ve just removed from exfoliating. So these two are great for
your nighttime moisturizers, depending on where you’re at
in your skin care routine, and then for daytime moisturizers, you have your Ex-glow-sion
Super-Rich Moisturizer for Dewy, Radiant Skin,
almost didn’t say that, and then your Drench & Quench
Creamy-to-Water Hydrator for All-Day Moisture. I’m really getting
tongue-twisted right now. So your Ex-glow-sion
has the vitamin C in it, so that’s gonna be great
for brightening overall during the day, and then
for the Drench & Quench, I love a cream-to-water moisturizer. I really like a thick, dense moisturizer that I can feel like it’s
there, it’s on my skin. But this can be really hard if you need to apply (chuckles) your makeup after, and you just have
moisturizer sitting on top. It’s gonna make everything slide around, so I have found that a cream-to-water one really fulfills my desire
to have kind of a heavy moisturizer to put on
and feel that working, but then it’s gonna go
to a water hydrator, so it’s gonna soak into your skin, really get deep down in those layers, make your skin nice and supple
and perfect for the day, but you then can continue, apply your makeup, and be good to go. Okay, I think that is all of
the advice and the products we wanna (chuckles) share with you guys. I hope some of this advice
was helpful for you guys. I tried to keep it as clear and
concise as I possibly could, I’m not the best at that, I’m a rambler, as I am doing right now. If you would like to check out
