Ep 209 - The #DamnGood Skin Barrier-Boosting Creams We’ll Use Forever

Do we really need an eye cream? In today’s episode, we set out to answer that very question, with triple-board certified dermatologist Dr. Mamina Turegano, who’s earned nearly half a million TikTok followers with her viral, edu-tainment skincare videos. Dr. Mamina walks us through the causes and treatments for dark circles, undereye puffiness and crow’s feet, including the eye creams that actually wield results, the single at-home gadget that’s worked on her, and the tested-and-true in-office treatments.

Dr. Mamina’s videos featuring her Mom’s Japanese skincare hacks have gone viral

Be sure to tune in next week, when we continue our all about eyes exploration with Manhattan-based plastic surgeon Dr. Lara Devgan, with the 101 on solutions that pick up where derm-treatments and eye creams simply can’t. Fox eyes, blepharoplasty, fat transfers – you’ll learn the costs, benefits, downtime and more in the second installment of this two-part special all about your most important, above-the-mask feature.

Just one of the eye creams Dr. Mamina uses in her own routine.

Meet Skincare By Hyram – aka Hyram Yarbro – the 24-year-old “Skincare Specialist” whose viral videos are making ordinary brands like CeraVe sell out among his six million TikTok Stans. Starting with his popular skincare routine reaction videos launched earlier this year, his #skincarebyhyram hashtag has racked up 1.4 billion views on the platform in just six months. In today’s episode, Hyram discusses his lightning-fast rise to fame, including how he’s dealing with the success – and the mistakes he’s made along the way.

We ask Hyram about that licensing deal we’ve been hearing about (Could “Hyram-Approved” Skincare be hitting store shelves soon?) And, we got you with his product recommendations, too. Find out which budget skincare brand he says is poised to be the next big thing. You’ll also hear about his complete, 4-step skincare routine, including the serum for oily skin he’s calling “sorcery in a bottle.” Finally, we find out which skincare tool is totally not worth the spend, and the skincare trend he’s predicting will be big for 2020 and beyond.
