🌙 Goodbye Chestne & Backne 🌙
The one thing I hate about the summer months, especially when you have very humid weather, is the fact that sweat, oil, and bacteria often lead to body acne. Unfortunately for me I have extremely reactive skin. So even one pimple on my chest or back is like a red beacon that can be seen from outer space. However, while researching body moisturizers to help ease folliculitis on my legs I found a secret weapon that has completely erased my body acne, so let’s talk about it! 🌙🌙🌙🌙 GOLD BOND - Rough & Bumpy Skin

Chicken Skin Be Gone!
For years I have struggled with “chicken skin” on my upper arms and chest. There were times that it was so bad that I was bullied and called a “chicken” both for my chicken-like skin and my acne (my acne resembled chicken pox at times). After a while I came to accept it as part of my skin. Until recently! These pictures were taken approximately five weeks apart. As you can see in the top corners of the first picture I had notiecabld discoloration and bumps (“chicken skin”). It is still not completely gone but overall my skin has gotten much better and the bumps have faded significantly. If you have this and are wondering what this is it is called Keratosis Pilaris. Keratosis pilaris is a common, harmless skin condition that causes small, hard bumps that may make your skin feel like sandpaper. You may have heard it called “chicken skin.” The bumps are often light-colored. They usually appear on your upper arms, thighs, and buttocks, sometimes with redness or swelling. It’s appearance can be reduced by using chemically exfoliating products that contain ingredients such as salicylic acid. I have sensitive skin so I wanted my routine to be fairly simple and contain minimal products. Every day that I showered I began with the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne wash on my arms. Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash I chose this because it’s a product I have used before and it didn’t contain a harsh percentage of Salicylic acid. After I showered and toweled off I used the Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy skin lotion. GOLD BOND - Rough & Bumpy Skin Once a week I used The Ordinary Peeling Solution for nine minutes before applying the Gold Bond lotion. It’s important to make sure you have thoroughly washed off the Neutrogena face wash because if you did not then the Ordinary Peeling Face Mask with form a weird lather and can potentially irritate your skin.The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution It was definitely a lot of work to do this on top of my acne routine as well and I didn’t see overnight results but overall I would say it was totally worth it! Pro tip: if you have chicken skin make sure you MOISTURIZE! A common cause of chicken skin is dry skin.
New products I’m trying in June ☀️ 💦 🏖
Hey Everyone! I picked up a few new products for the month of June and can’t wait to try them! As always with these new products I will being doing a one week review on them! quick thanks to everyone who’s followed,liked and commented! GOLD BOND - Rough & Bumpy Skin- this product popped up twice on my Cherie feed! My legs have bumps, are a little rough and have dark spots... I’m really hoping this cream will make a difference! I will be taking before and after photos! Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 I previously used a spf moisturizer before making the switch to this. I hope this is non greasy, easy to apply and doesn’t leave a white cast. Glee the face wax- Everyone grows hair but for a Indian girl like me my upper lip is a huge problem. I picked this up because I needed new wax strips and wanted to try this brand. I hope these work out well! And want to let you all know in case you need them as well!
Stick to it
I’ve been using this product for about five years and had really bad acne. I stuck to it and put it on my face twice a week every week and it helped me get rid of my scars. I’ve tried the face ones but this one is gentle enough to use on your face to exfoliate twice a week. Definitely would recommend this product for girls who have melanin like me. It helps get rid of dark marks.

I used tea tree oil to get rid of my skin tags!
Did you know you can safely and painLESSly remove your skin tags with tea tree oil??? I have had skin tags on my neck for as long as I can remember.... unfortunately for me i believe they re caused by the friction of my apron I wear for work every single day! 🙈 Over quarantine I realized I had been wanting to try this technique to get rid of the skin tags! It was SO EASY.... but tedious..... Every single day, two times a day, I applied the 100% tea tree oil to my skin tags and over a period of 4-5 weeks they either all disappeared, scabbed and fell off or significantly got smaller in size!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 This is a strong smelling oil so beware to wash hands off before touching rest of face, animals, children etc! Tea tree oils can be harmful for animals so beware when you put it on and let it set it for a while before cuddling your fur babies! 👌🏻 HERE IS SOME OTHER GREAT USES FOR TEA TREE OIL helps clear acne helps get rid of warts can get rid of ingrown hairs helps rid head lice mix with olive oil and apply to help clear up rashes softens dry cuticles (mix with jojoba oil) helps rid corns and calluses 🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃 TRADER JOE'S - Spa 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil #cheriecreator

Hello Can I Eat?
LUSH - Sleepy body lotion YUM. OKAY. YUM. If I could describe my perfect scent, this would be it. It’s like a lavender dessert that you can rub on your body. It makes me feel warm, delicious and yes, sleepy. It’s a tiny bit sticky, which is why I took a star off. But it is wonderfully moisturizing, and doesn’t clog pores (I have some body acne and this did not make it worse like some other lush body lotions have). I’d recommend this in a heartbeat just for the scent. You can also buy a smaller sized tub for under $10, which has been lasting me a LONG time!

I have very oily skin in summer, especially on my back and can suffer from a great deal of acne on my shoulders as well.

I am a repeat user of this product and I would totally recommend this for anyone that has any small issues that your trying to take care of. Pleasant smell and very satisfying results!
Murad-Acne Body Wash
Ingredient highlight: Cocoa butter
Skin type: combination, acne prone. Skin concerns: stretch marks. It is rich in fatty acids, which is why it is known for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. It is also rich in phytochemicals, these substances promote blood circulation to the skin and delay aging by protecting against sun damage. It is commonly used for scars, wrinkles, and other skin marks. Many women use it before, during, and after pregnancy to prevent/minimize the appearance of stretch marks. We can find it in creams and lip balms. In adolescence I got stretch marks in the hip area. For a long time I used PALMER'S - Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks and I can really say that it greatly diminished its appearance. My mom found it at Walmart and bought it for me, I used it for 10 years, I'm not as constant as before. The creams that contain this ingredient are thick and very moisturizing. Smells amazing. Speaking of facial creams containing Cocoa Butter, if you have acne-prone skin, it is not ideal for you as it can clog pores. PALMER'S - Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks $5.49 /250 mL Claims: is perfect for daily use on stretch marks, both during and after pregnancy, or due to weight fluctuations. Helps visibly improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Key ingredients: pure cocoa butter and shea butter, natural oils, collagen, elastina and lutein. Scent: cocoa and shea butter. It has a thick cream texture, it absorbs relatively quickly, it doesn’t leave greasy or sticky and it smells good. It greatly improved the elasticity of my skin in the hip area and visibly improved the appearance of stretch marks.
