Re: James Welsh

[ Edited ]

I see James Welsh mentioned a lot.  Curious as far as skin care, does he have any education on it or is he just doing videos of things that work for him, his experience with different products kind of thing?

No, he has no formal education on skincare.  He is self taught and speaks on all kinds of skincare needs not just his personal needs (he's combo with rosacea).  It's a passion.  He's done a lot of research and consults with professionals.  He is responsible for my complexion turn around and I adore him!  I take what I need from his videos.  As with most things, take what you need and do your own research.

@Wsmom He's known as an influencer. Before this gig, he was a men's fashion stylist and also did some tv work, then transitioned into the skincare world. His educational background is in photography.  He has no professional skincare credentials that I'm aware of.  He's an ingredient nerd and gives his opinions and reactions based on his own experiences.
