  • Well if you dont hang out for 10 hours in full sun there wouldnt be a need for sunscreen anyhow.
    People like to scare others that it causes cancer etc.
    But they always neglect to tell you that things such as genetics, age, quantity, build of resistance are great factors.
    someone that is outside all year long wont get burned/cancer as easily as someone who doesnt and suddenly goes sunbathing in spain.
    It is yet another way companies want to capitalize on us when we do not need it.
    moderation is key, if you are out all day in full sun then yes take your sunscreen but being in the garden for 1 hour is not enough for sunscreen.

  • This is quite simple really. People in africa/ india etc… have never used sunscreen the skin cancer rates in india account for 1% of all cancers.

  • **BLOOPER** OMG! I feel like such a turkey! This was supposed to release tomorrow (Sat) @ 6:30AM. I woke up this morning (Friday) to my own YouTube notification saying this video was released. ��‍♀️ Whoops. Well, the cat is out of the bag ��! If you have any comments or questions, I am TOTALLY around to answer them HAHA. As always, thanks for watching!

  • Guidelines are still anti health shit.
    Telling you to use sunscreen even in winter for ANY amount of exposure.
    Not mentioning anything about getting some regular exposure throughout the year, even in places with cronic vitamin D defficiency in the population.

  • It’s funny you say “conflict of interest” at the very start of this video but then you go on to plug a certain brand of sunscreen that you get a profit from and don’t seem to see the irony in that!! How can we now trust anything you have said in this entire video when you are being paid to say it!!?? I’m sorry but any credibility you may have had is now gone!!

  • For cruelty free products. There are many brands throughout the world which are cruelty free or not tested on animals or vegan but do not have any kind of logo. This is because these companies have not signed contracts with the said agencies or organisations. They just don’t feel mandatory to pay annual fees for the logo but are authentic cruelty free

  • This video is missing a tonne of info re: organics. Certified vs. non-certified is a massive difference. And the word “organic” in the brand or title mean nothing. And every country has different organic standards, so that makes things even more complicated. There just is NOT enough information in this video in that regard.

  • Thanks for sharing! Kinda angry to know that’s what they do to attract uninformed consumers. �� is there anything out there we can trust at all?

  • Love these informative videos! ��
    Btw. can you please do a review of the Hendel’s Garden Goji Cream? I’ve heard only good things about it on the internet, literally no bad reviews except that it is hard to find in a lot of countries, but I don’t know if it is worth the splurge. Nevertheless, I haven’t found any good beauty bloggers review it, and you too are really informed about these things, so I would appreciate your opinions a lot.
    Lots of love from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina ❤

  • Thank you for spreading the Cruelty Free different labels message, it’s also important to know that there are companies who ara affiliated to the PETA program AND the cruelty free international, but use the PETA label. AND that part of the research to know if a product is indeed cruelty free is to check if they sell on China, if they do, they cannot be labeled as so even if PETA gave them the label.

  • Hello Doctor! I am 16 year old high school student and my dream is to become a Doctor. I just want to ask if having a hand tremor/ hand shaking disqualifies me to become a doctor? Thank you!

  • The media will always sensationalize. The dose does make the poison.
    BTW, the benefits of sun exposure go beyond vitamin d. Very bright light coordinates the circadian rhythm and, thus essentially the entire endocrine system.

  • Ur content is best….nd I love to watch ur more videos…u girls r super awesome��.if someone is really a best beauty blogger than its ur channel only I think….I just love u girls������seriously crushing over u������.thnku for such information

  • Love these videos! You take every factor into account. Would love to see a video related to carcinogens and what the media claims can cause cancer.
