SPF update

I've started answering your questions based on Dr Lens' answers here and the videos (plural at this stage) will be up by the weekend.
I'll try and answer the rest of the questions and get the Cheat Sheet ready by Friday also.


  1. Hi! First off, I love your blog and videos. You've taught me so much about skincare. I have a question though. About the dread mineral oil. I'm quite an active lurker on a subreddit called skincareaddiction. It's pretty great, despite their aversion to higher end products, but whatever. There's a very interesting post there about mineral oil. I was just wondering what your thoughts on it was, if you have the time or can be bothered :) You're probably super busy but I'll link the post below.


  2. Hello,
    I have a question about body oil/ body lotion and sun exposure. I love using Kiehl's argon body oil on my legs but is this a no no if it's going to be sunny and my skin might be exposed for a short time. And what about other body oils/ creams with olive oil (known for its ability to transfer heat in cooking) and other oils? I tend to avoid sunscreen if I'm not going to be outside a great deal as they clog my pores and leave me with spots. Should I worry if I applied a bit of body oil and then do a quick school run without blocking my pores with sunscreen?
