Fermented Skincare | Why we need it!

Fermented Skincare | Why we need it!

No longer a fad but the future of skincare, I always look for fermented ingredients when I’m choosing skincare products and I’m happy that this breakthrough is becoming widespread and not stopping. Last year, I made a video about why I look for fermented skincare because of a Goodal haul I made. Since then, so many other products and brands focusing on this have emerged and I’ve been wanting to make a dedicated video about some of these brands and products that take this to another level. Sorry for pronouncing “Galactomyces” wrong throughout the video haha!

    can fermented yeast cause those "tiny bumps" on the face? i have heard that most tiny bumps that are not identified as acne or whiteheads could be "fungal".

    what if you have too much yeast in your body and its causing you little bumps on your forehead. wouldn't it be worse so apply even more yeast on?

    Hi renee, i want to ask that is it okay to use fermented ingredients at my 20s? I started using skII from 19 but i am afraid of the reversed side effect where they say your skin loose natural skin function and if you stop you will get extra dull skin?and is it true long term use of fermented ingredients especially skII can make our skin "raw"? I hope you see this and maybe reply.. thankyou ❤❤❤

    Someone needs to say that fermented products are not good for everyone, if you have a bad immune system it can cause more problems than benefits because the levels of the microorganisms that live naturally in your body are disrupted, so you really have to be sure of what you're putting on your skin, just like not all natural things are good for your health, this is something my biochemist friends have told me.

    Renee, what a great video! I have a question though! I just bought the Cosrx Galactomyces Essence, but I was wondering if it can be used with my Drunk Elephant C-Firma since it has Niacinimide? Or should I use them separately? I really want to try the Many Factory Galactomyces next, but I wanted to see if I would need to use it without C-Firma first! Thanks! 🖒🖒

    You mentioned you apply galactomyces niacin before serum. So does this mean this should be applied after toner? Is this a real essence or toner?
