    I hate that 37 is considered "aging" and "older".

  2. SmileSadly LaughLoudly on January 5, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Oh my god she’s fucking gorgeous

  3. Mindy Roo on January 5, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Hi Susan! I am new to your Channel. Love ya! I am totally with you girl. I’m turning 40 this year as well, with a toddler and a baby on the way. My Mom always told me when I was little. “You only get one face so take care of it.” And it’s true. It really pays off. My husband is nine years younger than me so I must be doing something right 😂. I’ve noticed a huge difference this year with my aging, probably like you said. Being pregnant changes everything. I’ve been focusing on “less is better”. I stopped using foundations and focusing on more natural look. BB creams, researching more sunscreens and water intake (Celery seed, Cranberry vitamins, sugar free pedialyte, collagen powder.) is there such a thing out there yet like a Sunscreen cream skin mist? Looking forward to more of your videos on Retinoids 🌼

    I actually like the less product and eco friendly one we actually need to think about our environment 😊😊

  5. Karina Contreras on January 5, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Susan can I use the nuface while breastfeeding my 5 month old ?

  6. W M on January 5, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Ohhh I love this woman 🥰

  7. Iki Niuhulu Green on January 5, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    I want to follow with you. I like your goals and i would love something to focus on. You are awesome ma’am. Love you from NZ

  8. Rafael TLV on January 5, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    at the end of the day only fillers can maintain your face

  9. Valeria Demonte on January 5, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    I always give up on retinol when I try adding it to my routine. do a video with more about it please. I feel the flakiness very bad and just give up on it.

  10. Georgie Bass on January 5, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Susan, I applaud you for trying to ditch the term "anti-aging" and trying to be more Eco-friendly!! 👏🏼👏🏼 I think the fact that you’re in the beauty industry, trees, does make it harder, but also means a lot! And with your influence can have a big domino effect! So thank you for that!

    Unrelated to skincare, my husband and I make a different eco & budget-oriented goal each year. Last year, we didn’t buy any clothing or accessories new/retail unless it was 50% off or more. So that meant really hunting for something your really wanted/needed. And not buying in excess. It meant we did a lot of thifting, but found some amazing high quality things second hand that still had plenty of life in them. And the clothing and textile industries are just as if not more guilty than the beauty industry regarding carbon footprint, waste, and social justice.

    This year, we agreed that we wouldn’t buy coffees unless we had a travel mug with us, or could get it "to stay" with a house mug. This prevents us from wasting thousands of paper and plastic single-use cups, and saves our budget from too many spontaneous expenses. We also agreed not to buy refrigerated beverages packaged in plastic; only glass, aluminum or cardboard.

    Just some more ideas for you and your family to reduce your carbon footprint even outside of the beauty industry. 👌🏼

    Where can I get lilyana retinol

  12. Lisa Carrender on January 5, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Love your channel! Thanks for all the advice! I heard you’re not supposed to use retinol with Vit C. Do you have any thoughts on that?

  13. chencho lham on January 5, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Can I have the original website to get lilyana retinol naturals. I don’t trust from ebay

  14. Sydney Murphy on January 5, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Your hair + skin are glowing !! 😍And the makeup is on point!!

  15. Aayesha Poudel on January 5, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    My main goal is to stop being lazy with my routine when my skin gets better. It may just me a personal thing or maybe others can relate, but as someone with severe acne, I realized when things get bad for my skin I get very invested in my routine and when things are better, I’m not as good with my routine and all that causes is for a cyclical issue of my skin getting bad again.

  16. Annah on January 5, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Which is one better for anti aging or in general? Retinol or retinoids? ://

  17. Tania Selene Carlos on January 5, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Can you do a review on trader Joe’s skincare products?

  18. Melissa Taylor-Gomez on January 5, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Can anyone recommend a skincare routine using cruelty free products for very sensitive dry skin? Thanks!!!!

  19. Princess Nk on January 6, 2021 at 12:01 am

    You look amazing!!! Hahaha I don’t see anything bad ahhaha

  20. Qudsia Mayar on January 6, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Hay Susan love your advice about skincare. What do you think about Algenist Elevate advanced retinol serum. I’ve never used any retinol before, started with this one, I’ve been using it every night . Please give me your thoughts about this one .

  21. Akira Ahu Maipi on January 6, 2021 at 12:02 am

    I love my freckles 😇 I wouldn’t want to get rid of them. Except acne scars I hate them lol

  22. Nila Said on January 6, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Didn’t know there are over the counter retinol

  23. Cassandra on January 6, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Love that you’re taking eco-friendly baby steps! 💕🌎

  24. tiger_lily21 on January 6, 2021 at 12:05 am

    If you have make up and your put and about how do u reaply sun screen

  25. precious A on January 6, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Question because I just started using retin a—my toner/HA is Hadalabo’s toner and i this before I apply my retin a. I let it dry down, apply my retin a, then apply hada labo’s milk/lotion to lock everything in. If I’m letting my HA dry down before applying my retin a is that drying out my skin? 😩

  26. Mystearicia on January 6, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Turning 23 and definitely got more serious with skincare since mid 2019, still learning but my routine has been quite simple which my acne prone combination skin is appreciating

  27. Eman on January 6, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Can you please do this makeup as a makeup tutorial? Please.
    Annnnnnnnnd you have amazing skin , can you share your skincare routine 😘

  28. CRG on January 6, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Which sunscreen do you use?

  29. Lauren Hepp on January 6, 2021 at 12:07 am

    I’m going to be entering my 40s this decade too. I’m turning 35 at the start of March. It’s crazy how quick the time has gone. Thank you for your videos. I only found them through your collaboration with Hyram. So far I’m loving your videos and I’m looking forward to watching more of them. 😊

  30. Carolyn Smith on January 6, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Will you talk to an Endocrinologists and Dermatologist about facial hair after menopause.
    How to get rid of it and what hormones test to balance.

  31. Sheena Ratnam on January 6, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Is anyone having trouble with the farmacy discount code in the description??

  32. PJ s on January 6, 2021 at 12:10 am

    I trust this woman with my skin, because every time i watch a video, her skin looks more and more amazing and youthful, I am baffled

  33. ME LO MY NE on January 6, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Would you try and review ZO Skin Health (by Zein Obagi) products? Especially their new firming serum

  34. Amy Shackelford on January 6, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Would LOVE a video on copper peptides!! Especially how to incorporate it into a routine and contraindicatives

  35. Makeup and Queer Magic on January 6, 2021 at 12:14 am

    You are such an inspiration and so admirable. I love all of your content.

  36. Sarah San Martino on January 6, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Could you please give us a recommended retinol to start with if we’ve never tried before? I’m in my early 20’s, can you start at any age?

  37. Siti Nurfatehah Kamal on January 6, 2021 at 12:15 am

    can’t wait to turn 25! i already started OTC retinoid (Tretinoin) this year after convocation last Nov. i truly understand what Susan means in being patience and incorporate slowly in your skincare

  38. Carolynn Q on January 6, 2021 at 12:16 am

    What is your favorite retinol product??

  39. Anita Evanger on January 6, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Can i use retinol when I’m still nursing my baby? I read everywhere that says to avoid it.

  40. Silent Musings on a Noisy Life on January 6, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Would love for you to take us through some of the things you’re doing for these things, as well as how to approach these things for different age groups. I’m 25 and I’d love to start preventative things so I won’t have to “reverse” things like losing elasticity later on.

  41. Venus Myrtus on January 6, 2021 at 12:19 am

    @4:20 I did that with hyaluronic acid!! Every damn product has HA and I was over using it and it was causing a reaction, and a lot of irritation. A good goal is too look over your routines’ ingredient list & make sure you aren’t over using an ingredient. But man is it hard to find products without HA. Suggestions anyone?

  42. x on January 6, 2021 at 12:22 am

    on the note of eco friendly, cutting down on meats and dairy makes a huge impact. you don’t need to pressure yourself or others to go vegan/vegetarian. cutting down to lesser overall consumption helps a ton and it’s easier than ever to opt for more vegan snack and restaurant options. animal testing is barbaric tho and i hope laws are passed worldwide to shut that down completely

  43. Grace White on January 6, 2021 at 12:23 am

    I do have the time, I’m retired so will use lots of good quality products

  44. Claudia Rocha on January 6, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Do you have any helpful information on rosacea skin?

  45. Clinae Alexandria on January 6, 2021 at 12:24 am

    thoughts on cerave retinol serum for post acne scars?

  46. Georgie Bass on January 6, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Susan, can you do a video about Retinols? Strengths for different skin concerns and ages? Or maybe you have one already I can’t find…. 🤔

  47. Lori on January 6, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Love my simple routine! Cerave Micellar water, Cerave cleanser, skinceuticals vitamin c serum for day, then Cerave moisturizer, spf! And retinol after Moisturizer at night.

  48. Aye kg on January 6, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Gorgeous hair!

  49. Esteff Mazariego on January 6, 2021 at 12:31 am

  50. C Deming on January 6, 2021 at 12:33 am
