my go to facial moisturizer for my dry skin
This is the only facial moisturizer all year round from CeraVe. This facial moisture from CeraVe for am use contains SPF 30 protection when you are out in about to prevent you having wrinkles do UV RAY. The Hyaluronic acid helps to give you hydration of layer of your skin and helps to retain moisture. Ceramides helps with restoring healthy skin for the natural barrier. Finally Niacinamide helps to calm your skin down. For my opinion I suffer by dry skin especially in the winter time and it helps me so much during the winter season. I usually use two pumps in the summertime but in the winter season I generally use three pumps. Or on the satisfied using this product and I would recommend anyone to try this product from CeraVe.

A little over 2 months results
I’ve been on 100mg /day of spiralactone. No side effects now. I think I had a bit of dizziness in the beginning but my blood pressure and potassium levels were always fine. I’ve stopped breaking out in cysts and very rarely a Pimple here and there . My face is healing now . I’m just dealing with all the post inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks now (PIH). I’ve also been using 0.025% clindamycin /clindamycin from apostrophe every night for the past 2 months also. I’ve just gotten 6%hydroquinone cream to add to my regimen . And so I’m hoping that will help out more so with the PIH Spirolactone and the tretinoin/clindamycin had done wonders for my hormonal acne !

Product Review: Skincare and Makeup
I received these item free in exchange for my honest review on them. Iv been using these products for about a month now. So here we go! 1. COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch Acne Pimple Master Patch $6. Firs of all holy value! These patches are actual magic. They are virtually invisible when on and I love how there are multiple sizes. It honestly cleared up deep pimples overnight. I’m going to stock up! 2. @LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo (+) Effaclar Duo Acne Treatment. I do not have very strong breakouts, while I wish I had this product in high school when my acne was really really bad this product was good but too strong/intense for where my skin is currently at. I used it on a few problem areas but it seems more like a long term treatment not a quick fix for someone like me. 3. MAYBELLINE - Mascara Lash Sensational Lash Sensational I loved the applicator but the formula itself was just not doing it for me. It clumped together on the brush and that transferred over to my lashes. I think the applicator is awesome but not the biggest fan of the formula. 4. MAYBELLINE - FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter Master Chrome Highlighter. I absolutely love this product! It provides a very natural glow that is PERFECT for literally everyday. It blends beautiful and I just really love it. 5. CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin GOLD STAR! This cleanser is seriously the BOM! It’s affordable, gentle, and gets everything from lipstick to lash glue off your face. I’m buying the biggest bottle they have right now!
Starting tretinoin and spironolactone
After 6 months of researching products and learning more about my skin and what works, I have finally found out the root cause of my acne. I feel like I’ve always had a good, consistent skincare routine. I’ve even made good lifestyle choices such as changing my pillow case every week, cutting out diary, limiting junk food, and drinking lots of water. However, I did not see any improvements with my skin. I mainly break out on my cheeks, chin, and jawline, especially when I’m on or about to start my period. I recently consulted a doctor for free thanks to my university’s student health services. She told me that this is hormonal for sure. I had been producing an excess of androgen hormones which lead to more oil production and eventually more acne. She prescribed me with spironolactone and tretinoin. I started taking these medications a few days ago. I think I’m in the purge period right now. I’m so glad I finally have closure on what has been causing my acne. I’ve never had serious acne problems in the past so this has been really frustrating. Current skincare routine: Morning: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Night: íUNIK - Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin pura d'or - 100% Rosehip Seed Oil I also use the THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser every other night. If I need to subside a pimple, I would use Rael - Acne Healing Patch or the COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch I’ve been taking spironolactone every morning and applying my .025% tretinoin every other night. I’m giving my skin time to adjust to the tretinoin so I will start applying it nightly next week. For those who have taken spironolactone or tretinoin: how long did it take for you to see less breakouts? And can I still use my salicylic acid cleanser while on tretinoin?

FA safe but there is a Sulfur product I prefer
MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion ^ has no fungal acne triggers Has 2 ingredients that help fight fungal acne: - Sulfur - Salicylic Acid Some people say it dries out there skin too much but I think it’s okay as a spot treatment. But it didn’t do much for my acne. A Sulfur spot treatment mask that works really well for me is De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength which you only leave on clean skin for 10 min then wash it off and use your regular skin care products
My Skincare Routine- 5 Months Later!
Long time no post! Since my first post regarding my skincare routine received quite a bit of attention, I decided to update and let you know what I’ve learned to do within the past few months. I still am using the same CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin cleanser, which will remain a long time favorite of mine. I am considering trying the SA cleanser once this runs out! My routine has simplified, as I really only moisturize and use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% in the morning and at night. I love how my once oily skin is now more manageable! I have come to learn that my skin really doesn’t agree with the The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA serum. I was away at college and left it home, as I’ve been back for about a month I decided to try it again and my skin has NOT been happy. I could be wrong, but I believe this can be to blame. I have really switched over from my The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution to the The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque once a week, as I feel the latter is less harsh on my skin. I could possibly be allergic to the peeling solution, as again at school I left it out of my routine and saw better results. My holy grail product used to be the MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion , which worked great but dried my skin out around the pimple over time. Now, acne patches are the way to go! I got these ones from Amazon, and at ~$10 for 125 patches, I see it as a complete win! Now I turn to you guys, as I still struggle with hormonal acne and now dry skin that the weather has changed. If there are any products you recommend (with a college students budget in mind!), don’t hesitate to comment below! I hope you all had safe and wonderful holidays with your loved ones! ❤️

let’s talk neck care!
Neck and décolletage care! This type of skin care isn’t addressed as much, but it’s still an important step of skincare! I never really thought about it while I was addressing my face skin concerns, but I once read that it was good to bring your skincare products down to your neck, so I started doing that about 8 months ago. I think my neck lines are partly genetic, but they’re also due to how often I sit in bed staring at my phone, thus creating deeper lines on my neck. I wish I had a picture from 8 months ago, but my neck was pretty wrinkly, it had really deep horizontal neck lines that I couldn’t get rid of even if I stretched my neck. While I still have some horizontal lines on my neck, they’re certainly less visible than they were before. So what do I do exactly? I really don’t do much besides bring my toners, serums, sunscreen, and moisturizers down to my neck, and I massage it in in an upward direction. So with the product on my hands, I start to massage from the base of my neck up to my chin. I do this until I feel like the product has been absorbed. Massaging the product in an upward direction will help smooth the skin and prevent drooping. I certainly did not see results immediately. In fact, it took at least 6 months of doing this little massage every morning and night to see some change. I really just stuck to it and ended up doing it out of habit for many months, then one day I realized my neck looked much smoother than it was before. Here are some of the products I’ve been using on my neck (I usually use these on my face too): ￼innisfree - Cica Toner with Bija Seed Oil ￼innisfree - Green Tea Moisture-Balancing Toner ￼CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion ￼THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum ￼Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment ￼FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream ￼The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

Product that helped ME with acne!
CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 This product worked miracles for my skin, and got rid of my pimples when nothing else was helping. I used this both morning and night as a moisturizer, and it helped me so much. You can find this on amazon, or many drugstores, and is pretty affordable for a sunscreen/moisturizer. ⚠️❗️PLEASE keep in mind that the products that work for me, may not work for everyone. Everyone’s skin is different, and I cannot promise you that this will work. :) Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser This is the cleanser I use twice a day. I have oily skin, so the dryness that some people might feel when using this didn’t really effect me, but if you have dryer skin, I would recommend the: Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser or the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I really hope this helped anyone struggling with their skin!! Remember, acne doesn’t make you any less beautiful ♥️

Cerave First Impressions!
You’d have to be living under a rock to not know about this Salicylic Acid duo.. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Cerave and have been dying to try it out. When I saw that we got these back in stock at work, I grabbed them to see if they would help the sudden burst of acne I for some reason got... Here’s my first impressions!! Cerave SA Cleanser: So far I’ve used this twice now and I can’t say a bunch about it cause it’s not long enough to see results...BUT I really like the way it makes my face feel. It doesn’t make my face feel dry or tight after using it (It also has Hyaluronic acid, my best friend). I also love that these products are perfume free, but don’t smell like pure chemicals. I’m gonna keep using it and see if it clears up my acne. CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser Cerave Renewing SA Cream: I’ve only used this cream once so far, but I like that it goes hand in hand with the cleanser. It also has hyaluronic acid which I’m happy about. This cream is directed to extremely dry skin (🙋🏼♀️) so I feel like it’ll do something to the dry patches that appeared on my cheeks. I’ll have to continue to use this product as well, and with the cleanser to see how it does but so far I’m seeing what the hype is about!!! CeraVe - SA Moisturizing Cream For Rough & Bumpy Skin
CeraVe-SA Moisturizing Cream For Rough & Bumpy Skin
*2 products that have saved my face*
there are so many face cleansers and moisturizers that make my face extremely dry or do not do anything to help. Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser and Moisturizing Lotion have •SAVED MY FACE• Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser is for all skin types. It is a face and body wash but I only use it for my face. The face wash cleanses without any irritation; and it maintains the skin’s natural protective oils and natural pH to moisturize and soothe sensitive skin as it cleans. it is gentle enough for baby’s delicate skin. It has gotten rid of all if not all than 95% of pimples or annoying little areas that are on my face. mainly on my Fore-head and chin area (but it has helped all over my face.) It cleanses my face very well and makes my face soft and smooth. I do not regret this purchase. It was really worth the money. *MORE TO KNOW ABOUT Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser* ♥︎It can be used with or without water ♥︎With water: Apply to your skin - gently massage all over your face; then rinse. 🌸 ♥︎Without water: Apply to your skin - gently massage all over your face; and remove with a dry cloth. 💫 Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion is a non-greasy, lightweight moisturizer.

I do know that it is very good for sensitive skin. You can use these products even if you do not have sensitive skin!! ☺️
Cetaphil-Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
Current PM Routine
I’m very early in my journey of finding the right products for my skin and clearing my acne. I currently love theCeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream My skin can be angry with pimples and redness but by morning redness is minimum and dryness gone. I also love MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for treating active acne. This lotion seriously reduces the life and size of pimples overnight. All other products pictured above I’m still experimenting with and very open to suggestions for my combination, acne-prone, aging, dull and rough skin.
Cetaphil-DermaControl Oil Removing Foam Wash
Let’s Talk Staples.
This CeraVe lotion, micellar water, and the infamous Mario Badescu facial mist - overrated or just right? Let’s find out!! CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion WOW WOW WOW!! I found out about this stuff from Skincare by Hyram (if you haven’t checked him out on YouTube yet, get on that :) ). It soaks in very quickly and is fragrance free. It also contains niacinamide and hylauronic acids, both *great* ingredients, especially for oily or acne-prone skin. It moisturizes just the right amount for my combination skin (oily in T-zone, normal to dry elsewhere, and acne prone). I use it both morning and night and my skin always feels softer and looks more even the following eight or so hours after using. $12 on Amazon. CeraVe - Hydrating Micellar Water Micellar water is a great product everyone should have in their arsenal of skincare. I recommend using this to remove makeup over makeup wipes, as it is much better for the environment and your skin than what can be stripping, overly frictioned wipes. 4 stars because I don’t find it hydrating, but it’s very gentle on the skin and feels great to rub all over your skin at the end of the day. Not sure how much it is, but I’d guess it’s only a few bucks at your local Walgreens/drugstore. MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater yep, I was victim of the rose water craze a few years ago, too. I bought this spray thinking some miracle might happen. I didn’t know anything about skincare or ingredients or even what my skin type was at the time, which is where my mistake came. Lemme be completely upfront: THERE IS NOTHING EXTREMELY BENEFICIAL TO YOUR SKIN IN THIS. However, there is nothing harmful, either. It does contain glycol, but that’s all it has going for it. Overall, it feels great and smells very good, but it’s not very useful as either a skin hydrant or or a setting spray, so unless you’re just looking for the aesthetic of the product, don’t waste $10 or whatever it costs. Annnnd there’s my take! Let me know if you had similar or completely different experiences with any of these products.
MARIO BADESCU-Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
Skin Concerns: sensitive skin
Skin type: fair to light Skin issues: rosacea, eczema, dry skin and oily t-zones I’ve been suffering with rosacea, eczema for the last six years. If you don’t know much about rosacea it’s when your skin is red and causes visble blood vessels around the central part of your face, nose and cheeks. It also causes bumps that look like acne but are actually a form of rash that is itchy, irritating and can leave scars. If you get a flare up it can last for a week to months. The flare ups (redness,rashes) can be so bad you have to take a round of antibiotics for a month to calm it down😭. Flare ups of Redness and rosacea rash can come from eating certain foods that are spicy, sunlight exposure, alcohol 🍺 and various cosmetic products especially those that contain alcohol, Witch hazel, Menthol, Camphor, Peppermint, Eucalyptus oil, Fragrances, and Propylene glycol. Even though I have done a lot of research web trying to find out what ingredients cause flare ups it’s different for each person. So what I do is when I get a new product I test a small section of my face before i apply the product all over, to see if I have a reaction or not. Cetaphil cleanser is actually one of the products that my Dermatologist recommended for me. It says it’s for all skin types, on the back it even says for even the most sensitive skin. Unfortunately, knowing what I know now I look at the ingredients of products even if they are recommended for me by a dermatologist. Cetaphil contains alcohol which is horrible for people with dry skin or rosacea. I used Cetaphil cleanser for a few weeks I should have stopped after the first week. Being naïve I thought that the The dermatologist wouldn’t recommend a product if she didn’t believe in it and she also wouldn’t recommend something that cause me any more issues. It was one of the worse products I have tried. It felt like it stripped my face from all moisture, it caused dry patches and also caused a bad rosacea flare up.It was so bad I didn’t want to leave my house and putting on foundation or any product to cover it up just made it worse. I made my final appointment with that dermatologist and she then prescribe me doxycycline 100 milligrams twice a day, for a month. My face did clear up after a month of taking doxycycline, and I found a new dermatologist. I gave this product a 1/5 star because I feel like it’s very misleading and not meant for people with sensitive skin as it claims. I would not recommend Cetaphil for people with sensitive skin, dry skin or people with rosacea. If you are suffering with rosacea I would love to know some products that have worked for you.

3a - 4a Curly Hair Tips From Team Cherie Calling all curly girls! Team cherie shares some of their favorite ways to take care of their natural curls.Dec. 23, 2020
My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
