Breaking Beauty Podcast

Jul 20, 2022

Summer skincare school is in session! It’s your guide to serums with UK-based, cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Sam Bunting. Many of you will know Dr. Bunting from her popular, education-stacked YouTube channel, along with her eponymous, award-winning range, Dr Sam’s Skincare.


In this week’s episode, Dr. Bunting explains how-to find the right serum for your skin goals, answering all of your questions about when to apply it, layering do’s and don’ts and so much more, like:


  • Do you really need to shell out hundreds of dollars for a serum to see results? Where to spend and where to save.
  • The four, all-star skincare ingredients Dr. Bunting recommends to the majority of her patients.
  • The best serum ingredients to target sensitive/rosacea-prone skin; oily skin types, pores/texture, hyperpigmentation and melasma
  • Which ingredient she believes is skincare’s biggest unsung hero
  • The one popular serum ingredient that she believes is “marketing gone mad.”
  • The keys to retinol success
  • How-to avoid stinging from active ingredients, staying on the path to skin-changing results.
  • Skincare fads: why she’s not a fan of skincare cycling or serum cocktailing 
  • How long you should wait to see if your serum is working.
  • A shopping list of her most recommended skincare serums.
