The trick to healthy skincare is knowing your skin. That is the only way to identify the appropriate skincare products tailor made for your skin type. Not all skin is created equal. So, it is important for you to know your skin's natural state. Here is a quick and easy way to determine your skin type. The wash face test 🧼 Wash your face 🛑 Do not apply any product after washing face ⏰ Wait for 2 hours After 2 hours, examine how your skin feels. Your skin type is Normal: if no oil or flakes. Oily: if skin is shiny all over. Dry: if skin feels tight or flakes Combo: T-zone oily, dry/normal everywhere else on face That is it! I lucked out with a combination skin type. sigh! My cheeks are always dry while that T-zone is dripping oil!! Always a struggle finding the right balance of products to maintain a healthy glow. However, if I manage to do it so can you!! Now go ahead, try the wash test to find out your skin type!! xoxo, IG: @theculderm
Cul Skincare Challenge with Dr. Cula
Hi guys! I am Dr. Cula, a dermatology resident in New York. I am here to debunk all skincare myths but more importantly, here to foster excellent skincare practices. November is National Healthy Skin Month! So, I thought to kick off my page with a skincare challenge to promote healthy skincare habits among Cherie users. Join me on this 6 week skincare challenge for healthy and more beautiful skin. The challenge consists of three main steps to be done in the morning and evening (swipe to see). I added the HA serum to the evening regimen to minimize skin irritation and dryness from the retinoid, which can be exacerbated by the colder weather. So, why join me on this skincare challenge?...Because: 🥰 skincare routine is self-care. 👯♀️To slow down aging, consistent use of retinoids will help take the years off 💅🏽Healthy, glowy skin is a great confidence booster! How do you monitor your progress? A picture if worth a thousand words!! 🤳Take a selfie at day 0, week 3 and week 6 and share your progress on cherie! 🤳Use the Topic Tag 'Cul Skincare Challenge' and tag me so I can be sure to check out your posts! Pro tips: consistency is key to reaping the benefits. Your skin may get worse before it gets better if you are new to retinoids. Key is not to stop and to keep pushing through it!
