    Ep 12: The Facts on Anti-Ageing Skin Care

    Welcome to Skincare School the podcast, your ultimate skincare study guide. Join Adore Beauty’s Senior Editor Amy Clark and Dr. Michelle Wong from Lab Muffin Beauty Science as they take things right back to basics to make skin care simple and F-U-N!

    What’s on our last episode (for now)? We’re glad you asked…

    The Facts on Anti-Ageing Skin Care

    There are a lot of myths floating around when it comes to ageing, and 'anti-ageing' skin care. Some of it comes down to confusion. And fear-based marketing. And a lack of understanding around exactly what anti-ageing skincare products can (and definitely can't) do.

    In our final Skincare School Season 1 episode, Michelle explains exactly what happens in the skin when we age, as well as ways to target the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, should you like to.

    We also bust some of those big anti-ageing myths, including whether all anti-ageing skincare products are created equal. Plus, get our best in class product recommendations.

    Is Your Skin Sensitive or Sensitised?

    If you listened all the way back in episode 1, you'll know sensitive skin isn't actually a skin type. But how do you tell the difference between truly sensitive skin, and sensitised skin?

    Michelle breaks down what to do if you've sensitised your skin, plus busts some common sensitive skin myths, including if natural is always 'better'... And Amy shares the very best products that won't sting or irritate sensitive skin.

    The Difference Between Dry and Dehydrated Skin

    Even though they sound similar, dry skin and dehydrated skin aren't the same thing. But how do you know if your skin was born dry, or is just perpetually thirsty? Or both?

    Michelle explains the difference between these two skincare terms, including what they are, their common signs and how to tell the difference between dryness and dehydration.

    Plus, can drinking water actually hydrate your skin? We find out in our Pop Quiz segment. Oh, and we also share the Best in Class products to help manage the signs of dryness and dehydration.
