Transitioning Into My Winter Skin Care! ❄
So technically, I never even transitioned into my "Fall skincare" this year. Where I live, the fall months don't usually get that cold. For the most part, i've been using the same products I was using in the Summer. And that was a mistake! For the past few weeks it's been really dry outside, and eventually resulted in a disruption of my moisture barrier. My cheeks, and especially the area around my eyes felt super tight, and even got cracked and flakey. Lets Talk Cleansers! I LOVE the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser

AM Routine to Hydrate + Reset Skin
Ive had more irritated skin that usual these days so I’ve been reaching for these products in the mornings to soothe my skin and give gentle hydration. They’re helping get my skin back on track. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Cleansing Gel I got the mini tea tree set from Biossance and it has been a game changer on days when my skin is acting up. This gel cleanser gently foams, smells amazing, and really helps when I’m starting to get acne (usually just right before my period but more these days because of maskne!) Id love a travel size as I really only use this as needed a few times a month but if I were more acne prone it would be a staple Hanskin - Hyaluron Skin Essence I love this stuff! Probably not strictly necessary but the watery texture feels great and I find it helps other products, like my superfood serum sink in better BIOSSANCE - BIOSSANCE Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Hydrate + Firm Peptide Eye Cream I have a lot of eye cream in my stash right now so I’ve been going crazy and using the Biossance eye gel under something richer. I like that this lets me target circles and then also intense hydration! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Firm and Brighten Vitamin C Serum this is a great all-around serum for hydration, firming, and brightness. It’s best when used on a wet face since the HA really sucks up a lot of moisture. This serum is super gentle so I like using it when I don’t want a very active routine and want to hydrate. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi this baby is a staple for me! I typically use it at night year round, but this month I’ve been reaching for it in the morning too since the winter weather has made me much drier. This is so hydrating but lightweight and really soothing on the skin! BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil like the tea tree cleanser, I only use this a few times a month as needed. It does an amazing job helping to clear out oncoming breakouts. It’s lightweight, sinks in fast, and I love the tea tree smell! I’d love a .3oz size of this since I do use it so infrequently this little sample has lasted me a few months so don’t think I could ever justify buying a full bottle Hope you enjoy my routine! Let me know if you want more info on any of these products 💚
The hype let me down 😢
Who loves Youth to the People? I do!! But now I have to say I usually like it, instead of totally adore it. YTTP is vegan, made in California using cold pressed extracts and is meant for all skin types. Plus, all their products come in glass bottles!!! Awesome👏 I’ll be honest, I bought these 2 products because of all the good reviews on Cherie here. And I absolutely loved their cleanser. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Here’s the lowdown. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha This face mist claims to calm, recover and hydrate. Living in Canada in winter is gonna kill your skin no matter what, so I thought this would be just the ticket. It comes in a glass bottle🤍that you shake to activate the ingredients. The mist is quite fine, and smells kind of like wet ones! I honestly notice no difference when I use this mist or not. I had high hopes for this cream, with the cold weather, my acne and redness all acting up. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi I used this moisturizer for 3 days, and it simply didn’t cut it. After using the mist, I applied this and shortly after, my face was a bit tight and did not feel moisturized enough. I will note this did not break me out, which is a definite plus. And the smell, which is something I really notice, reminded me of clay. It wasn’t strong or long lasting. My redness was somewhat calmed but nothing my go to moisturizer Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer doesn’t do. I do want to try some other YTTP products tho, like the dream eye cream and the hydrate + glow dream mask.

my second round of the ordinary
my second round of my favorite the ordinary products that I will use for the rest of my life that don't make me poor and my skin appreciates it.The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% They helped with my breakouts and lightened some blemishes caused by acne.
Ordinary Products U Can & Can’t Use Together
I’ve seen a lot of confusion and questions about which The Ordinary products you can and cannot use together. Sometimes it’s trial and error. Sometimes, we only use one product. I was looking around Pinterest for more information on The Ordinary products (which I use and LOVE) and came across this awesome, handy chart! Share it, save it, screenshot it, learn it, memorize it, print it (like I did because I’m super forgetful). Enjoy! The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA The Ordinary - Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Solution The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Blackheads/Whiteheads on forehead won’t go away!
PLEASE HELP. I have been struggling with this for about 2 months now. Over the summer I always use Paula’s choice dry skin cleanser and their dry skin retinol night cream and I have no breakouts. I’m in the sun a ton and use sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 with no breakouts. The last two months I have been dealing with these bumps — looking closely into a magnifying mirror they are a ton of blackheads and most recently these larger pimples. I tried Nizoral and that didn’t help, thinking it might be fungal acne, but I don’t think it is. I love the AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay , it NEVER makes me breakout more, but it’s not really helping the blackheads/bumps go away, debating if I should use it more than 2x a week? I also tried using CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream , I don’t think it makes me break out but it didn’t help with the bumps. I also tried DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel , and it made my skin way too sensitive and didn’t help. Cerave dry skin cleanser makes me break out, so most recently I am using LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser with the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer . My T-zone has been INSANELY oily so I wanted to switch to oil free products but I don’t see any difference. Last night I tried the The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque and I think I like it? Too soon to tell. My skin is a little flaky and oily at the same time right now so I’m not sure if my skin need products for oily skin or dry skin. I also find my skin does best when I only wash it at night and absolutely nothing on it in the morning. Any insight would be great!
CeraVe lotion 🧴
CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream ￼I tried the CeraVe hydrating cleanser and their regular body lotion, I wasn’t a big fan of them so I kinda steered clear of the brand but I had tried this prior to the other ones and always liked it. ￼it’s great for winter ❄️ and super thick ￼so I normally get back acne around my lower back and near my bra strap because of over washing (because of the acne in the first place) and then never using a thick enough moisturizer. So it’s kinda a vicious cycle. I use this stuff on and it’s started to help the acne from dry skin. ￼overall makes the skin really soft. It’s a very nice body moisturizer!

3 Paula Choice Skincare Routines ❄️☃️❄️
Hey guys!!! I love Paulas choice products especially the PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer and PAULA'S CHOICE - 0.3% Retinol + 2% Bakuchiol Treatment !! Over on their IG they posted suggested skincare routines created by their client social services consultant Allie, I wanted to repost a few today for dry and dehydrated combo skin since it's cold outside which can often lead to dry/dehydrated skin. Paulas choice is another great brand to reach out to if you have questions!!! Just pick the products in black for an essential routine and include the products labeled in white for a full advanced routine. I do want to point out that there is NO perfect skincare routine, you need to listen to your skin. If you are feeling really dry you might want to add a heavier ceramide moisturizer or if your skin is starting to feel irritated back off on your exfoliation. Use these suggestions as a way to get started but still adjust or take away products by how your skin feels. Do you wish more companies would post suggested skincare routines based on skin type?? #cheriecreator
My new skincare routine
Since I’ve been introduced to this brand , i can simply tell how they’ve made my life a way better ❤️ i like the new routine , it works for me & I’m so glad to have followed all the tips . #paulaschoice, i wishes i had used them sooner, but never too late . I starting using these products a few weeks now, and the toner PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator has almost eliminated the sebum buildup and reduced the size of my pores. I also like the cleanser PAULA'S CHOICE - Defense Hydrating Gel-to-Cream Cleanser is very fantastic, not drying, and very pleasant to use . Also, the retinol cream moistures PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer, 50ml without leaving an oily skin. Definitely ordering more during the winter.

Tretinoin and Spironolactone Progress July-Dec
I’m back! And wow what a difference! I’ve since switched upped my dosage to Apostrophe 0.05% tret with 4% Niacinimide cream forumula beginning in November. I’m also taking 50 mg of Spirinolactone now. My face has definitively gotten a lot drier, with some mild peeling throughout the day (any tips are welcome!) I’m going to see how waiting 15 mins before apply tret after moisturizer and 15 minutes after tret will work Overall, I feel like my forehead has a smoother texture, and I’m seeing less breakouts. I now definitely want to start working on reducing the appearance of my acne scars, but with my face so dry right now, I’m not sure if that’s an option. I’m going to wait a while and talk to my derm about adding in any actives. Also very sad about the Purito sunscreen scandal :-( Here’s my routine below: Morning (focus on hydration and barrier) CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum HONEST - Hydrogel Cream BRUJITA - Hechizo Facial Serum BRUJITA - Vegan Crema Supergoop! - Glow Stick SPF 50 Night (applying tret nightly-wondering whether to reduce to every other day ) DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil HONEST - Gentle Gel Cleanser (or COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser ) dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence HONEST - Hydrogel Cream Then putting BRUJITA - Vegan Crema on my driest areas Apostrophe Cream BRUJITA - Hechizo Facial Serum BRUJITA - Vegan Crema
This is really hard to post, but my skin was beautiful in the beginning of this year (first collage pic). didnt have a flaw on it practically. around summer time i began noticing closed comedones all over my cheeks. i have dermatillomania and tried to get them out but obviously it didn’t do anything but make my skin worse. what the tipping point was, i used a face shaver and i did this multiple times and ruined my cheeks. i thought it would help...no, not at all. my skin got worse, and worse, and worse. september was the worst my skin has ever been and i’ve never felt so insecure (2nd collage pics). the past few months i’ve been using CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser and i think it’s really helped. the horrible horrible chin acne has died down, and things are just left as scars now. i use this morning and night along with The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and CeraVe - SA Lotion For Rough & Bumpy Skin these two have also helped a lot for what i believe is just the “congestion”. at night i do the same thing but add The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA and The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil for my scars, because i’ve read it really helps brighten and decrease the appearance—which i think it has. once a week i use the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution i’m beginning to worry i have too many things going on and that’s why the progress is so slow. i’m also on the hunt for a new sunscreen because i was using CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide and i HATE it—the white cast is awful and it makes me feel sticky. i thought this was a good routine but i’m beginning to get concerned. i switched my cleanser from the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser because i was seeing no progress at all and thought i needed something with a bit more strength. does anyone have any suggestions? i’ve gotten better about not picking, but some days it’s very hard and i’ve lose a lot of confidence this year due to my acne. i’ve also been on 100 mg of Spironolactone for 3-4 years now, but in september i upped it to 150 because of how bad my skin got. i do my best to not eat any dairy and i’ve worked on having a better diet, to really flush my system, but i don’t know what’s right or wrong for me anymore.
Anti-Aging for Sensitive Skin
Now most people think of anti aging and grab products with a high amount of active ingredients in them to ensure they're getting the maximum amount of benefits The reality is that too many actives normally result in a damaged skin barrier that can only cause your skin to look further aged and fragile. For this reason, it's important to give actives a break and focus on soothing and gentle ingredients that will help sensitive skin looking youthful and fresh. Here are 2 examples of exceptional products that are perfect for gentle anti aging. PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum I am fully satisfied with how nourished and hydrated my skin feels after putting this on. Some of the key ingredients include chia and flaxseed oils for those rich Omega fatty acids, which do wonders for your skin. This is also followed by olive oil and a bunch of ceramides. Perfect for a compromised barrier or overall sensitivity FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream Also very impressed with this product. The perfect nighttime emollient cream to leave your skin feeling buttery soft and plump the next day. The formula contains shea butter, oatmeal, jojoba esters and peptides for the perfect overnight repair. I would 100% recommend these for people with sensitive skin, dry skin, or damaged skin. I will certainly be repurchasing these as well.
Price Doesn’t Matter (Except That It Does)
Pause: price doesn’t matter in that it doesn’t innately affect the quality of the product. I used a (thankfully gifted) $160+ cult favourite serum and was comically underwhelmed with how horrible it smelled, how unpleasant the texture was, and how irritated my skin was despite the fact that I had used vitamin c serums just as strong previously. And then I look at a community-renowned $8 niacinamide serum that is, by all accounts, a decent serum... that my skin hated and I detested due to the tacky texture. I’ve used, and loved, skincare that ranges in price from $6-$300+, some gifted and some purchased with my own money. I’ve opted for lovely $15 moisturizers when I couldn’t afford my $60 favourites. I’ve paid extra for specific ingredients that are a bit more pricy. What I’ve Learned? Price means little to how my skin will like it. But price still matters. If your budget for skincare is small, your options similarly size down. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t good skincare in your budget. Of course, opt for prescription if you can afford it- 1% retinol from the most expensive brand can’t compare to a basic 0.0125% tretinoin prescription cream. Look at your skin, do a bit of research, and see where in your routine that you can splurge a bit, or where you can go strictly utilitarian. If you have access to CVS, they have 40% off coupons regularly and CeraVe is bangin’. If you’re international, check out the go-to The Ordinary who ships internationally, or go through CultBeauty to get ahold of similarly affordable brands like Versed and The Inkey List 💰 In the end, price really only matters in that it affects what brands you opt for and how large your routine is. You don’t need $110 moisturizers or $120 exfoliants, though they often offer better textures and more well-rounded formulas. Just cleanse, moisturize, and slap on some sunscreen, and you’ve got your bases covered 💕

the best moisturizers for this dry winter season
The winter time has arrived and Christmas is just around the corner. The air is colder and drier… and no help to our skin. Here are a few of the best moisturizers- for night and day- to ensure all-day hydration… all found over-the-counter or at a drugstore! Before we begin our list, here are some benefits as to WHY you should moisturize morning and night, no matter your skin type. Firstly, your skin will become less oily. Dehydrated skin leads to overproduction of oil. If your skin is hydrated, it won’t feel the need to produce more ‘moisture’. Another benefit is plumper and brighter skin, which, of course, contributes to the overall youthful, glowy skin that everyone desires. Dry skin can also lead to itchiness, so moisture is key to prevent irritation. Hydration is also key for a smoother makeup application. The key ingredient in all moisturizers is hyaluronic acid- if you don’t see it listed, don’t bother buying it. Personally I also prefer fragrance-free. Make sure to always use a moisturizer with SPF in the morning, or at least use sunscreen over your moisturizer. CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion This is my all time favorite night cream. I have been using it for years and swear by it. You really can’t go wrong with CeraVe and this cream is everything it claims to be- ultra-lightweight, insanely hydrating, and oil-free. Perfect for acne-prone individuals like myself. Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel MoisturizerI feel like this gel-cream product has gotten a lot of hype recently, and rightfully so! Glycerin and HA are the perfect combo and your skin will drink it up. It’s also non-comedogenic and alcohol-free. VANICREAM - Moisturizing Skin CreamThis cream is recommended for extremely dry and sensitive skin. You’ll also find ceramides in this product, which are found in the phospholipid bilayer cell membrane. Meaning, if you find ceramides listed amongst the ingredients, it will help reinforce the skin’s barrier (ahem, cell membranes). LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30For acne-prone skin, generally oil-free is the way to go. Also known as non-comedogenic, oil-free moisturizers won’t clog your pores. La Roche-Posay has many great products for acne-prone skin, and I use quite a few myself. Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 I wanted to throw in a moisturizer with SPF (one I’m currently using, actually). This moisturizer is oil-free, made with soy extract, and paraben-free. It has SPF 30 and has little tiny sparkles that make your skin glow after application. It also works great under makeup. I hope this list helps, as these are some of my favorites. My top brands for moisturizers are CeraVe, La Roche-Posay, and Cetaphil. Serums are also a great option (REVOLUTION - 2% Hyaluronic Acid Serum). Don’t forget to moisturize those lips too (I use Vaseline - 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, Original every night)! And finally, remember to stay healthy and hydrated during this holiday season. --------------------------------------------- Thank you for giving my post a read! Iam excited to share my thoughts on topics I am passionate about. :) LG, Louisa
The gift of good skin!
For Christmas, I made my sister a new skincare routine! She has combo acne prone skin with some sensitivity and redness, she also complained of some dark circles around her eyes. She currently uses terrible products and is pretty lazy when it comes to skincare so she doesn’t even wash her face everyday! I tried to design something simple, affordable, and easy to keep up with (e.g. mostly drug store products) but also an effective starting point for her skin needs! How did I do?

A.M. Routine ✨
After seeing a dermatologist, I have started using clindamycin gel in the AM and tretinoin cream in the PM for my persistent acne. I also have dry, sensitive skin so I am taking things slow. For 2-4 weeks, I’ll be using the clindamycin gel every other day, and then every day as prescribed. My P.M. post details how I use the tretinoin cream. Here is my A.M. routine! CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser This is a gentle, creamy cleanser that’s perfect for dry, sensitive skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft & hydrated, not stripped. PAULA'S CHOICE - Enriched Calming Toner This is a new addition to my routine, and I absolutely love it! It has a milky texture and leaves my skin feeling soft & less irritated. I apply it with a reusable fabric pad. PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum This is also a new addition to my routine. I like this product, but I don’t love it. I will be trying out the Krave Great Barrier Relief serum when I’m out of this. Clindamycin Gel- I apply a pea-size amount of the gel every other day. I apply dots of the gel on my cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead before gently rubbing it in. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin After letting everything dry, I apply this moisturizing cream. It’s very thick, but for the most part absorbs into the skin. There is some left on top to form a protective barrier. I re-apply throughout the day on extra dry & irritated areas. I will be trying out First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Relief Cream to see if I like it better. Rodan and Fields Soothe Sunscreen- This is a mineral, broad spectrum sunscreen with 30 SPF. I have been using it for over a year, and I really love it. It leaves my skin feeling soft & less red/irritated. I will be trying the Purito Centella Unscented sunscreen to see if I like it better than this one.
PAULA'S CHOICE-Enriched Calming Toner
Hello Cherie community! I started being interested into skincare a few months ago and I’m curious to get some advice from people who have experienced similar issues with their skin. This is my current skincare routine. I’m wondering if I need to make some changes or just add some patience to it 😅 Let me know your thoughts. Much love, Nadia FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing BalmI use this cleansing balm at night when I’ve worn sunscreen and/or makeup. I absolutely love the feeling, the scent, all to it but I’m starting to wonder if it’s part of the problem. BIODERMA - Sensibio Soothing Mild Cleansing Gel My morning cleanser and double cleanser at night. I’m giving it a try and I like it so far. SUMMER FRIDAYS - CC Me Vitamin C SerumNew addition to my morning routine. I was told niacinamide and vitamin C could help with my dark spots so, I decided to give this serum a try. My skin is much smoother texture wise but I haven’t seen a difference in my spots so far. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry SkinDay & night moisturizer. I wasn’t sure at the beginning since the texture is quite thick but my skin absorb it quite fast. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA TonerI use this toner every other night to exfoliate. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Phyto-Retinol SerumI use this serum every other night when I’m not exfoliating and my skin feel super plum the next morning.

HELP: STARTING A NEW ROUTINE?! 🤪
Hey all!! I’m newer to the skin scare space and looking for AM/PM routine suggestions. My skin is normal/combo and recently I’ve been having frequent dehydration which may be due to extra exercise in my daily routine. I’m looking for products to keep my skin CLEAN, HYDRATED, PROTECTED, PLUMP and GLOWY. I do have acne scars on my forehead, sides of my face, and chin. My most acne prone area is around my chin and it has been like this for the past few months- breakouts in that area every other day. I’ve been looking into the following products to help my skin: Cleanser: CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser Possible along with the CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skinfor my acne problem area hydration: PAULA'S CHOICE - Hyaluronic Acid Booster Or The Ordinary - Marine Hyaluronics Or DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum For hydration Evening skin tone: PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Boosterfor evening skin tone For additional serums/essences to make the skin appear more glowy/youthful I was thinking of trying: Krave - Great Barrier Relief Or TATCHA - Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum Exfoliation: PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Moisturizer: Open to suggestions. Heard good things about CeraVe and Youth to the People The products I’m using now are Okay but I would like to step it up and have clear glowy skin without needing to use makeup :) I appreciate any suggestions/tips from more experienced skin care lovers 💖💖
PAULA'S CHOICE-10% Niacinamide Booster
I follow the 5 step routine. Cleanse,tone,exfoliate,treat&moisterizer/spf My day time routine. Cleanser. Make sure you have a good cleanser because is is the first step in your routine. Look for a cleanser that is straight to the point. Not to over stripping and not to gentle that it does nothing. CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I use this and it’s bomb. Straight to the point. Basic but worth it. Tone. Toners have been a game changer for me. I use HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Aromatherapy Water Rose Petals simple. But good. Exfoliate. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Best product hands down. Don’t over exfoliate tho! Best for oily to acne prone skin. Although. I do not exfoliate In the morning only at night. If you exfoliate in the morning it can sensitize your skin!! The simpler the better. Treat. You can treat with serums, niacinamides, oils etc. I use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil íUNIK - Black Snail Restore Serum Moisturizer. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream i use this in the morning because I have oily skin and it does control my oilyness and at night I use a thicker moisturizer for the whole night since it’s when your skin repairs it’s barrier. At night I use CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin SPF. ALWAYS PUT ON SUNSCREEN. My new favorite is from purito PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ love this stuff.
