Do We Have Bad Skin? • Ladylike


– Wrinkle creams in your 20s? – Should I get Botox? – What is collagen, and
why do we need to boost it? – May the gods of skincare helps us because this shit is hard. – Luckily enough, Dr.
Rivkin in Beverly Hills owns a VISIA machine. What is a VISIA machine? I don’t know. – Well, we’re gonna find out. – It’s LadyLike, and today
we’re answering the question. How healthy is my skin? (upbeat music) – I actually think I have
pretty good skin, thanks mom. – Right now my relationship
with my skin is pretty neutral. – Big pores is like a beautiful gift passed down from generation to generation, and I’m stuck with the big pores gift. – I haven’t had a lot of acne
or pimples in my lifetime. I think part of it has to do with the fact that my skin’s so dry and
it doesn’t hold on to oils. – Obviously, like I had some
acne when I was growing up, and obviously I have some
flare-ups now and then, but usually I feel pretty
secure with my skin. – I have rosacea, I have hormonal
acne because I have PCOS. Some people just don’t
win the skin lottery. – You know, as a woman in Hollywood, I think aging is always
kind of a scary concept. – I think that like people
are used to seeing women who have these beautiful faces, and so when they don’t have those faces, they they think that they
are abnormal or strange. – When I think of aging and
my anxiety around aging, it doesn’t necessarily surround my looks and how my appearance will change. It’s just more so where I am in my life and if I feel like I’ve
accomplished enough. – I’m pretty happy with the way I look. At the same time, like
I give myself room for, like in 10 years, I might feel different. – It requires a lot of effort, right? You gotta do your research,
you gotta spend the money. I don’t put that much effort
into my appearance right now, so I imagine when I’m older, it’s like, I’m just gonna be too lazy. – If you’re gonna do
something because you feel like you have to in order to fit in, then that’s where it
can get a little dicey, but if you’re gonna do something that’ll just make you feel more like you, then I don’t see anything wrong with that. – So today we’re gonna
get our face analyzed by a VISIA machine. This machine is used by
dermatologists to kind of give you a picture of like
where you’re at with your skin. – It can tell you kind of
what percentage you’re in based on other people who
have used the machine. – Can a dermatologist
even tell me these things with the quickness that
the VISIA machine does? Like, it’s kind of scary. – We’re also going to the
doctor on my birthday. – I live in southern California,
I’m always in the sun, so I wanna know if could
be doing a better job protecting my skin. – So we’re gonna meet the good Dr. Rivkin. It’s gon’ be real fun. – Let’s go! – Hi guys. – [Group] Hi. – So what the VISIA does,
it takes the picture of the surface of your skin,
but it also takes a picture using a UV filter of what’s going on just underneath the skin. All the nasty, awful, horrible stuff, it counts it all up, and then it compares you
to, like, everybody else. It’s not peer reviewed science. It’s like a kind of popularity contest that you don’t wanna have. (laughing) The sun emits UVA and UVB radiation. It’s important actually to
have the right sunblock, and a physical, titanium or zinc, those are the sunblocks
that really do a good job with blocking both UVA and UVB. I’m kind of guilty of this as well cause I’m like, you know, I’m indoors, I don’t need it, it’s okay, but it does come through
the windows to some degree. – We stand by the window.
(group mumbles agreement) – There’s also some motivation as to kind of do something
and maintain your skin and take care of your skin
cause you only have one. Let’s do it. – [Group] Let’s do it, all right. (energetic music) – [Dr. Rivkin] Tuck your
chin here, forehead here. One, two, three. – We just met, Dr. Rivkin. – [Dr. Rivkin] (laughs) Yeah, right. – You’re gonna know all my secrets. – Dr. Rivkin was really chill,
he was really, really nice, and he was just like, hey
ladies, we’re gonna take pictures of your skin, and it’s gonna be aghast. – [Dr. Rivkin] This is
just kind of the spots. Look how many spots you have,
and that’s not very many. So you’re in the 87th percentile. Pretty good, 63rd
percentile, so above average. 50th percentile, so you’re average. 86 of them.
– Oh, really? – Pretty good.
– Oh shit. – [Dr. Rivkin] 95th percentile. – Really? – [Dr. Rivkin] Yeah, you’re
like the skin merit scholar. – Oh my gosh! – [Dr. Rivkin] Light green is superficial, Dark green are deeper, you
have barely any dark green, but you do have some light green. And a lot of times the
wrinkles around the eyes are because of smiling, so
you just have to, you know, kind of correct that if you don’t mind. Just stop, okay.
– Sure, yeah, I can do, yeah. – [Dr. Rivkin] Yeah, no more. Yeah, like that, good. – My least favorite part
was seeing where I stood in regards to wrinkles. – [Dr. Rivkin] You’re 42nd percentile, just a little bit below average. – He was like, do you
smile a lot or laugh a lot, and I was like, yes I do, and he was like, there you go. – Does that mean I’m more wrinkly. – [Dr. Rivkin] Well, just in this area, it means that you’re,
you know, you’re smiling. This is the area where most people have, even when you’re young you
have a little bit of wrinkles. Because you’re happy, this
is your punishment, because so you have a little bit of
wrinkles around your eyes. – I’m a very expressive person. I went to theater school, okay? – [Dr. Rivkin] Little
bit of superficial ones, a little bit of deeper ones. Hey, better than average, 62 percent. – Oh, so higher’s better? – [Dr. Rivkin] Higher’s better. – Okay, ’cause I looked
at 62 and I was like, oh, – Right.
(hissing) For you, your texture
is a little, kind of, little more up and down. 26th percentile for that.
– Okay. Well, can’t win ’em all.
– But, ya know. – Nothing that I learned
from the machine really made me feel bad because he
wasn’t really telling me anything that I didn’t really know. – [Dr. Rivkin] Your skin
is more textured than some. You’re in the 20th percentile. Close to average. Compared to, you know,
what it thinks is good and compared to most people your texture is in the, you know, so 77th percentile. – Okay.
– So it’s very good. – You have problem areas,
you have areas that you need to improve on and work on and then there are areas that
are less problematic and kind of just are, you
know, floating along and doing their thing. – [Dr. Rivkin] Looks like
you’re in the 21st percentile. So that means that out
of 100 people 80, 79 have little bit smoother skin than you do. No big deal.
– Yeah it’s always been like that. – [Dr. Rivkin] How big are
your pores versus how small your pores are you’re
in the 14th percentile. (laughing) – 80th percentile. – Strong pore game. – Strong pore game indeed.
– Gotcha. It was really awesome to kind of just see that reflected on the computer
screen ’cause I could be like, yeah you know what I do always get breakouts in this area. – [Dr. Rivkin] Pores are small I mean look at that there’s barely any. (laughing)
You’re a big winner man. I mean, so 85th percentile there. You’ve got some pores. – I know, I have massive
pores we’ve talked about this in videos before. – [Dr. Rivkin] And again,
doing all these things that we talk about will help with pores and controlling acne controlling
kind of acne scaring. You’re like elite like SAT person. 95th percentile for UV spots.
– Wow. – [Dr. Rivkin] So you
don’t have a lot of those which is good because of
your background you have some sun protection
naturally, so that’s good. Compared to everyone else
with your skin tone and at your age, you’re in
the 78th percentile so you’re good.
– Yeah. I wear sunscreen every day
and I very very much protect my face that was really
really gratifying to see because it feels like something that I very much take into account. – This is a cool picture it’s like art. – [Dr. Rivkin] You really don’t have any because you have a good cover. – He still explained
the fact that there are certain types of sunscreens
that should be used over others and I’m gonna definitely take
that into consideration and put that more into my every day routine because you know, you get
caught up when you get cocky. – Oh!
– This may seem bad but it’s actually the 81st percentile.
– Wow. – So you don’t have a heck
of a lot of sun damage. – We got to look at all
of the UV damage happening on our skin, it was brutal,
it was like a waste land. – [Dr. Rivkin] 8th percentile. – 8th? (laughing) What? (laughing) – [Dr. Rivkin] You’re light
skinned, you’re genetically also predisposition–
(laughing) you live in LA you know. – That’s how bad it is? – [Dr. Rivkin] It is
something to pay attention to. So, definitely sunblock. – There’s so much about your skin and like so many things that you can
like do to make sure that it’s healthy and whatever that like
it was kind of overwhelming. – [Dr. Rivkin] How much
brown spots do you have? Not too much, 81st percentile. – I think it’s really easy
to see pictures of your skin and get weirded out or scared. – [Dr. Rivkin] This is
what’s on the surface versus the UV is what’s underneath, right. – Geeze. – [Dr. Rivkin] You know, you’ve got some red areas little bit here and there. – [Kristin] Yeah. – [Dr. Rivkin] Brown spots, yeah, average. – What is the redness? – It’s the capillaries on
the surface of the skin and a lot of people have some
enlarged capillaries in this area. – I call this being Irish. – [Dr. Rivkin] 99th percentile, dude. (laughing) – For brown spots?
– For brown spots. You have no brown spots. Poriferans measures bacteria
on your skin and it looks like with everybody else that we’re doing. Concentrated around the nose
area and that’s just, you know acne, you know, acne
bacteria and stuff like that. Not too much, it’s actually
it’s 80th percentile it’s not bad, but it’s always
nice to keep our skin clean. So, around your nose and
around the edges here. – My least favorite part when he did the bacteria graph on my face. – Just making sure that,
you know, you’re doing exfoliation keeping that
area clean it’s a good idea. – It did say like, you know you
have a little bacteria here, here but that immediately made
me want to go scrub my face. – He found a good amount of bacteria and suggested that I exfoliate more. – [Dr. Rivkin] There’s a
little bit of bacteria. – In my nose.
– A little bacteria on your nose. – I like to think that I keep
decent care of my skin but just learning like deep within the depths of the pores of my nose like,
I need to really go hard with like exfoliating and
making sure that I get that out. – [Dr. Rivkin] And so it
shows you what the contour of your skin is in a 3D view.
– Wow. – Different spots on my
face that I thought were smooth acne scars turned out to be actual like, indentations. – Oh, gross. – [Dr. Rivkin] There they are. – I love popping pimples. – I’ve never been able to get so close up to my skin before so that
was really, really cool. – This whole experience
was really validating because he was like, yeah
you just gotta make sure you’re exfoliating and
I was like cool I do it every other day and he
was like that’s perfect. So, it was really nice
to get a confirmation that I’m doing the right things. – This is cool because it gives me intel as to like where I need to be like focusing my attention–
– Right. – and my skin routine. – [Dr. Rivkin] Right,
’cause it’s not everything, you can’t do everything, you know, all the time.
– Right. – [Dr. Rivkin] But then it
gives you feedback when you come back you know, like okay two
months I’ve been really good. Let’s see with the improvement and you see the improvement and you’re like okay, so this is and it
gives you reinforcement to keep up those practices. – No matter what information
you get from this machine it’s literally just looking
at pictures of your skin it’s a snapshot in time, right? What ever you find out,
it’s like, that doesn’t mean that your skin is bad, that
doesn’t mean that you can’t start taking better care of your skin. – It was definitely nice
to hear, nice to learn. But, there were different– – Yeah it must have been nice wasn’t it. Must have been real nice. (laughing) – I wasn’t saying it like that! (laughing)
– It’s just so nice! – [Fred] I gotta exfoliate
my nose is a little stank but also this makes me feel
better about my anxiety about being in my late 20s now so– – [Dr. Rivkin] No, you’re doing great. – Looking at like what could
be makes me think like, oh, you know I complain a lot about
how my skin is annoying but like actually, you know, I’m a young lady. I still got pretty nice skin. – My ex needs to stop calling, that’s what this is right here. Thank you so much Dr. Rivkin. – [Dr. Rivkin] You never know
what this machine will reveal. (laughing) – It is just like really
cool and informative to know what is going on with your face. – That information is gonna give me tools to start taking, like, better care of it. At the same time, I don’t think we need to know how we compare to other people. – I think a lot of it has to
do with it’s user base and I would love to see sort of
how the demographics break down because how accurate really
could an assessment like that be if it doesn’t really represent everyone. – So, it’s important to go in with, like, a good healthy sense that like
you are still okay even if a machine tells you that maybe your skin’s a little bumpier than other people’s skin. – We depend on computers
so much already and it’s nice to kind of
like bring the computer into the fold of your
skincare routine, but it’s ultimately not necessary. – Getting your face analyzed
by a computer Lady tested, Lady maybe Look deep within. – We’re all gonna die. It’s gonna be fine. (laughing) – [Dr. Rivkin] And, that’s the lesson. (funky music)
