Dr Oz: Anti-Aging Products with Ni’Kita Wilson
On today’s show, Dr Oz brought out Ni’Kita Wilson, beauty insider for www.youbeauty.com to show you which beauty supplies you should purchase and which ones you can skip.
Dr Oz: Facial Cleansers With Botanical Extracts
1. Facial cleansers with botanical extracts- Ni’Kita told Dr Oz that botanicals are good, but the issue is with the cleanser.
Cleansers don’t have enough contact time on the skin and therefore will not work effectively. Instead, look for a product with a toner that will be on the skin for longer.
Anna, from the audience, stated that she bought plenty of products and spent a lot of money. To demonstrate, Dr Oz and Ni’Kita applied a good amount cleanser to Anna’s face. (They had to come back to her at the end of the segment to see how it worked.)
Dr Oz: Sugar Oil Lip Exfoliator
2. Lip exfoliator- Most exfoliators are made with sugar and oil, which means you can make it at your house. Ni’Kita stated that you could get the same benefit with olive oil and a toothbrush. She applied the olive oil to Doctor Oz’s lips, then used a toothbrush, and gently rubbed the oil in a circular motion. Ni’Kita suggested putting on the olive oil at night and then using the toothbrush in the morning.
Dr Oz: AHAs, BHAs & Retinol Anti-Aging Creams
3. Anti-aging creams with retinol AHAs or BHAs- While retinol is great, and so is AHA and BHA, the problem comes in when they are in the same product. According to Ni’Kita, they don’t work well together. To get the maximum benefit, look for products with labels that say acid (AHA, BHA) or retinol is encapsulated.
They took off Anna’s mask, but the botanicals haven’t been on long, so there was no real difference. If you try this at home, leave a message and let me know how it worked.
