*forum* how does the beauty ind. affect you?
Another card from my MyTopicals reflect + connect cards! How does the beauty industry impact your mental health? Honestly, it used to a lot. When I was younger, I fell so hard for all those images of perfection and believed beauty’s promise to bring that perfection to me if I bought this moisturizer or that serum or this makeup. It was exhausting chasing beauty as if you don’t already have it! I got so fed up of playing the same loops of hope and despair; hopeful about a new product and disappointed that I’m not “beautiful” after. I had to learn how to not fall for all the marketing and words beauty brands would recite (and as someone who has written for so many beauty brands, I’ll tell you now, they can and will say anything to sell you a dream) and realize that I am beautiful just as I am! The dream the beauty industry keeps trying to sell is already yours an that’s why I love platforms like Cherie and brands like mytopicals because they allow us to celebrate where we are and who we are! And, it makes beauty fun again. Trying and choosing products for our enjoyment and self care vs. feeling like we’re so imperfect that we need all these products. It’s a fine line but I learned to love the beauty industry while also loving who I am!

Topicals is everything y’all💖
#Gifted Say hello to my babies💗💛 This year has been a lot🙃(you can say it sucked, or you can see it was different either way your not wrong) I try to find the little things that bring me joy and these two are one of them. 💗The Faded serum has change the hyperpigmentation game if you didn’t know. My hyperpigmentation has lightened tremendously😱 💗 Keep in mind my scars are not all gone but with more time they will be😁 💛I was honestly shocked with how much I love the “Like Butter” cream🤭 I’m oily so I didn’t think it would do much to my skin but here I am using it as moisturizer and loving it. This was the perfect introduction to soothing ingredients💛 I would say dry skin people would love it but everyone will love this😁 This combo has got my skin looking right honestly😭 TOPICALS - Faded and Like Butter Duo
Best duo for fading dark spots and moisturizing
Topicals Faded serum and Like Butter Hydrating mask are AMAZING! Faded is a serum aimed to fade dark spots, scars, and hyperpigmentation. It has Tranexamic Acid, Azealic Acid, Niacinamide, and Kojic acid along with some other super helpful ingredients! All of the key ingredients in Faded helps with fading dark spots and have some acne fighting ingredients as well. I use this as a spot treatment on dark spots and on acne as well and she has done WONDERS for both skincare concerns! Because of all of the actives in the formula though, you may experience purging so look out for that! I only use this at night and haven’t experienced any irritation when using it and it’s only just been such a blessing in my routine! A lot of people also love to talk about the smell the product has because she’s stinky LMAO but nothing too crazy! I personally don’t mind the smell at all and it’s not too bad. Overall, she gets a 10/10. Like Butter Hydrating Mask is a hydrating mask that also can be used as a moisturizer. I personally use it as a moisturizer and absolutely LOVE it. If you watch my stories, you know that when I get a breakout it’s usually inflamed pustules and using this product has significantly helped tame the breakouts. It has turmeric, centella asiatica, colloidal oatmeal, and green tea extract along with other anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients. She is great for dry, sensitive, or eczema-prone skin and I highly recommend this for anyone that has those skin concerns!!! This product has honestly SAVED my skin and I don’t know what I’d do without it. Once again, she gets a 10/10.
