Answers to "what about" questions:
Tea tree oil? It depends. See my facebook note on TTO.
Other essential oils? No. There's nothing essential oils do for the skin that can't be accomplished with other ingredients. Most skin care ingredients overlap with each other in their functions. An exception to the EO rule is vanilla, but it doesn't serve much of a function aside from fragrance.
Lemons, if they're used with (fill in the blank)? No, never use lemons.
Other citrus fruits? No.
Witch hazel? Controversial, depends on some factors that we can't necessarily determine. Probably ok, but see my facebook note on witch hazel.
Rose water? No. See my facebook note on rose water.
Yogurt/dairy? No proof this is beneficial. Might be, might cause problems. See facebook note.
Turmeric? Probably fine, don't overdo it.
Other spices? Probably not. If your skin tingles or burns when you put something on, it's probably not good for the skin.

The takeaway from this video should be that you need to exercise caution when trying things you hear about on the internet. Remember, your skin is an organ, and not everyone is qualified to give you advice on how to care for it!
I do not give personalized recommendations in video comments or answer private messages. It is just not feasible for me to do so. I will try my best to answer questions in future videos, in facebook notes or (whenever I get around to it) in blog posts, but I regret that it is not possible to answer thousands of questions individually.
Please check my back catalog of videos and facebook notes--there is a lot of information in each!
Hi, I'm Veronica! This is my 12th anniversary of becoming an esthetician, and I'm happy to share the wisdom that I've gathered over the years with all of you. My resume includes practicing in a famous LA plastic surgery center's medical spa, a five-star hotel and two of the most famous waxing institutions in Beverly Hills. My skin care philosophy may be a bit different than a lot of what you hear about on the internet, but it's based on many years of professional and personal experience.
If anything that I say is helpful to you, I would sincerely appreciate if you take a moment to share my videos!
Thank you, xo
