Thank you to Murad for sponsoring this video!

I see patients making the same mistakes with their skin care over and over. Today I decided to pull together a list of the most common skincare mistakes I see from them, covering a wide range of dermatological issues. We discuss things like popping pimples, charcoal masks, skincare trends, hydration, moisturizer, shaving, alcohol based products, sweat, pore health, sunscreen and SPF, exfoliating scrubs, and so much more. Have you made any of these skin care mistakes, or maybe you’ve found a treatment plan that works right for you? Let me know in the comments!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

As a child I had a lot of pimples and stuffs around my nose because I had glasses and sweat would be trapped underneath the nose part.

my skin will just have to be dry because any kind of cold water is excruciating to touch, never mind to stand under it while it bombards my entire body.

Including James Welsh in the social media “knowledge” section was so inappropriate: he is one of the most renowned skincare enthusiasts that himself promotes the idea of not experimenting with your face. He is the exact opposite of how you describe him. That is not fair! ❗️@James Welsh

I actually recently received a scar, from accidently sitting my knee on a razor, I was sitting in the shower and since hand issue made it hard for me to get up, when i got up on my knees to stand up, my razor sliced into my leg, mom didn't seem worried about it, I bled the morning after when wanted to change the andage since it bled through and I didn't want the blood to stick to the scab and rib open next time I changed it, scar is red, happened last month, would scar cream still work on it?

LOVE Dr Mike, but it’s really hard to trust product recommendations when they are paying you. Seems like it’s only being recommended because of that…anyone ever used that brand before?

okay, but whats so bad about acne scars? i genuinely dont get it, its just an aesthetics thing, isnt it? i get scar tissue buildup can create some health problems, but normal acne scarring isnt causing much harm at all, yeah? love, a dermatillomaniac who really doesnt understand why people care about the appearance of their and other peoples skin if its not harming them at all.

Thanks for tips! But your rong about the sun u cant put sunscreen everyday it's bad it's a substance of liquid and the sun gives you vitamins and idc if something goes rong even if it hurts you still get vitamins for it to fight of with your body to heal the sun burn or even skin issue!😡👎

My friend was using my tablet yesterday and now I have all of these skin care video recommendations. Makes me extremely grateful for my skin. Granted, I didn't grow a beard until I was 37. But I also never had to deal with acne, and in 50 years, only 3 or 4 pimples/zits (in the 60's and 70's we called them zits). I think my lack of big pores is what stopped me from having acne, AND facial hair. But I'm grateful because it seems like a real issue for some people.

I've picked my skin since I was a very small child. I've tried to stop before, people around me always point it out, I use icky nail polish, I've worn gloves, used bandaids, it just hasn't worked. I'm gonna need professional help to stop, which I can't get yet. Good news is, even though it's suuuper extensive (I didn't have fingerprints for part of my life because I picked them off...) I've only ever had ONE infection! (There's now a hole in the side of that fingernail, that u can't see but it's like a little pocket... gross, anyway) Also, with covid, masks have helped me stop biting the fingers, but i still pick them with my nails and bite my lips off.

Hello Dr.Mike, I have a quesion. How do i treat deep, fat self-harm wounds? (on my own) They are usuly 3-5 millameters deep (Its probably huge to most people, but I'm kinda used to these deep wounds.) They get really long and wide, on the upper forearm. I have hit veins a few times and hit blood vessles all the time.

Peroxide was literally given to me by a doctor to clean my thumb daily since i had to get surgery on it to remove pressure from pus. So i dont know how to feel about the second fact
Felt kinda skeevy to mention that the video was sponsored by Murad at the start and only recommend Murad products in such a salesman style around the end without reiterating that they were the sponsor.

Lots of NURSES who deal with WOUND CARE daily disagree about whether to leave a wound covered or let it dry out. At my facility we strongly believe in keeping wounds covered until they heal if at all possible. Several hospice nurses we see are of the mind that they should be left UNcovered.

I got my hand run over by a shopping cart once when I was younger, and it was probably the most painful thing I’ve ever felt. It completely stripped off a layer or two of skin on my middle and pointer finger, and my mom told me that even tho it really hurt, I shouldn’t put a bandaid on constantly because it’ll heal faster without it
