Protecting Your Skin

avatar
ass_out_for_antioxidants
🌼 I have combo skin leaning more dry (probably because I live in Southern California which is essentially a coastal desert and also full of smog and sun so I need all the protection I can get) 🌼 My skin is currently in a pretty good place where it falls more in the normal range but I do still get occasional breakouts and bouts of oiliness and dryness 🌼 Here’s some of my favorite products for protecting my skin: 🌼 Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser: This is a great affordable gel cleanser that’s packed with antioxidants. Anything which Matcha in it is going to be packed with antioxidants. Hemp is also a great ingredient for keeping the skin soothed and hydrated. I like to use this as a morning cleanse or a second evening cleanse. 🌼 Youth to the People Suberberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask: This stuff is magic. It contains Maqui Berry which is actually the most antioxidant rich fruit in the world as well as vitamin C and moisturizing Squalane. I use this at night after my moisturizer and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and bright. My favorite mask of all time. 🌼 Farmacy Very Cherry Bright Serum: This is an awesome vitamin C serum to protect your skin during the day from pollutants, UV rays, blue light, etc. I really like this for my combo skin because it’s a lightweight gel that contains four different types of hyaluronic acid and keeps my skin hydrated and plump but not oily or sticky. I use this every morning after my toners and before oils/moisturizers. 🌼 Purito Green Level Safe Sun: Never forget sunscreen. It’s the absolute most important product you can use to protect your skin. I love this because it’s affordable, lightweight, and doesn’t leave a white cast. I apply this after moisturizer in the mornings (and don’t forget to reapply every 2 hours)

is there such a thing as too much sunscreen? even though it's winter & I don't go out often, it's still important to wear sunscreen! I pulled in my sunscreen collection for this shot & wanted to share some quick thoughts!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ MY TOP PICKS:⁠⠀ ☀️ Isntree - Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel [FiveStars] [PR] ⌁ easily my favorite! leaves no white cast & is fragrance/alcohol-free. gives a dewy look, which I don't love, but my skin feels very moisturized (includes 8 types of HA & niacinamide)!⁠⠀ ☀️ FACE HALO - MISSHA All-Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel SPF50+ PA++++ ⌁ my go-to when I wear make-up as it dries down matte! more watery than the first. this isn't fragrance/alcohol-free, & sometimes, I do feel like this leaves my skin a little dry. however, makes for a great base when I want to wear foundation.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ THE OTHERS:⁠⠀ ☀️ BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 [PR]⠀ ⌁ edit: this is a chemical sunscreen so it leaves no whitecast. haven't tried this on my face but the scent reminds me a lot of a sunscreen I used as a kid!⁠⠀ ☀️ elta md SKINCARE - UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 ⁠⠀ ⌁ unfortunately, I can't bring myself to use this one. the white cast is too much & leaves my skin feeling sticky.⁠⠀ ☀️ MAELOVE - Sun Protector SPF30 [PR]⁠⠀ ⌁ 100% mineral sunscreen with no whitecast. works well on foundation free days but a big no-no under foundation (causes it to clump & cling to it in a very unflattering way) but otherwise a great sunscreen!⁠⠀ ☀️ PURITO - Centella Green Level Safe Sun⁠⠀ ⌁ it's too bad how this story turned out. fell out of love with this one before everything happened but mostly because I realized that I don't love the scent of lavender in my skincare 😭⁠⠀ ☀️ TreeActiv - Safflower Oleosomes Daily Natural Moisturizing Sunscreen [PR] ⌁ haven't been using this one either as I also find it leaves a tacky feeling on my skin.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ UNOPENED:⁠⠀ ☀️ Bellflower - Watermelon Fresh Sunscreen [PR] ☀️ KEEP COOL - Soothe Bamboo Sun Essence SPF50+ ⁠⠀ I'll admit that there's a lot about sunscreens (& their ingredients) that I don't understand, but hopefully, I'll have a chance to do some research & write up a thorough post about it in the future!⁠ might change my thoughts!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ what is your go-to sunscreen at the moment? ☀️⁠

Acne is back 😩 please help!
Just when I thought my acne was clearing up...it’s back. To give you some back story, I’ve used Curology for the last 4 years and it’s been amazing, up until recently. The last 9 months or so my acne has been getting worse and I tried going off Curology for the first time in a while. As per my last post, I went off Curology and just used the Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanserand the INDIE LEE - Superfruit Creamalong with spf. I also use the #Versed - Doctors visit instant resurfacing mask with AHA-BHA[products]#once a week. My skin was doing pretty well, getting less breakouts and way less redness. I’ve been doing this for 3 weeks now and of course my skin starts breaking out horribly. It’s weird because it’s only on one side of my face. I do sleep on that side usually but I change my sheets and pillowcases often (one a week) so I’m not sure why that would be happening. Let me know if you have any suggestions! Thanks :) Ps. I’ve tried the paulas choice toner in the past and it didn’t help for me :/

Dream Eye Cream ✨💛
When youth to the people released their new eye cream this year, I was dying to try it out but didn’t want to commit to the full size. Thankfully they had a rare gwp offer with the sample right when I was going to stock up on my moisturizers 🙏🏼 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Dream Eye Cream With Goji Stem Cell and Ceramides What is it? yttp’s dream eye cream is formulated for nighttime use to hydrate, firm, and brighten the eye area Key Ingredients: goji stem cell: claims to stimulate skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles THD ascorbate (vit C): yttp loves this form of vitamin c that is stable and oil soluble superberry blend: like the dream oil and dream mask, the dream eye cream contains YTTP’s nourishing superberry blend with hydrating maqui, prickly pear, and squalane Product deets: This eye cream is completely fragrance free and has a thick texture that absorbs well. The Verdict? This is the first yttp product I’ve tried that I wouldn’t repurchase. The feel of the product is amazing and it does hydrate my eye area very well, but especially at this point in my life (I’m 28) I don’t need a lot from eye cream beyond hydration and their YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Hydrate + Firm Peptide Eye Cream , which is $13 less gives me plenty of that! I am so grateful I got a sample of this so I could ease my new product fomo and then go back to my standby! ✨ One thing to note - other than the added Goji stem cells and the fragrance removed, this eye cream has a very similar formulation to the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask If your eye area isn’t sensitive to gentle fragrances, but you want the intense hydration and vitamin C of the dream line, you could use the dream mask around your eye area.

Lux Eye Cream on a Budget
I know Youth To The People and “Budget” do not belong in the same post together, but stick with me! I’d been thinking about adding an eye cream to my routine for a while now, despite knowing they’re unnecessary. I tend to get dark puffy under eyes when I don’t sleep well, as we all do, and it would be great to have a fix for that. However, whenever I take a look at my options I’m appalled by the price to size discrepancy! Eye creams cost as much, if not more than facial moisturizers at 1/3 the size- wtf! I was about to order THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream, but then made a key observation. YTTP’s brightening YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask comes in the same mini size as their popular YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Dream Eye Cream and has similar ingredients—and costs nearly $35 less. ‘Could the $15 mini mask serve as an affordable alternative for the almost $50 eye cream?’ I wondered.... We’ll never know since I’ll never spend $50 on a half ounce of product 😂 but after dabbing a tiny amount of the dream mask around the contour of my eye nightly for a week, I believe I’m seeing some brightening! Also worth noting that I have not seen any adverse effects either. I’ll keep on using this and am looking forward to the results a few weeks down the line 🤞🏼 PS the full size 2oz jar of the mask is the same price as the 0.5oz eye cream, which is an even better value than the mini size, but not sure I can commit to that just yet haha

MY MOST USED “NO FAIL” AM ROUTINE
The products you see have been products I’ve been using time and again for two years, around the time I got serious about my skincare life. These steps I never skip although I have added others or tried different brands. I will say again that I have used a more expensive version of Hyaluronic Acid and while it truly felt soft and comforting to my face, I don’t feel this is where my high dollars need to be spent. INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser best cleanser around! You can even leave it on longer and use it as a mask! This helps target dull, uneven textures, dark spots and pores. It’s a gel like texture. I am all about products that brighten my skin. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner next up is to tone and what better with one that will hydrate, soothe and protect your skin with the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 and Hyaluronic Acic! Plump that face up! I like to splash just a few drops of water on my face first then come in with Co-10. All we can do to help seal that hydration 💦 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Then comes HA to really lock in that hydration. So may find it hard as people claim it can be “sticky” or “tacky” but I go right it after spraying my Co-Q10 and do a quick rub and then immediately tap it in. Then let it completely dry. If you don’t, you can have your following products pill, and believe me, that’s not fun! I believe everyone should have HA in their routine. There are so many variations out there at many different cost points but if you do your research and are comfortable using what works for you, go for it. Mine costs me $6.80 a month. I use it both am & pm. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry depicted in the picture as the cute little 🍒 is VCB. I am currently out and my order is taking much longer than I’d like. But I have probably used almost 10 different brands of vitamin C (in comments) and I’ll still be goin back to Farmacy. I love the light scent and I had seen results pretty quickly, never any side effects. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream I have a handful of creams I do adore and I could really probably spend less than dear ole Tatcha, but oh I do so love this cream. It just makes my face so happy. It’s a bit richer but my mother who has oily skin loves it! If I am hanging inside - tbh that’s 90% of my life - I do a light amount and then follow up about 10 mins later with sunscreen. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I do wear sunscreen indoors although I’m never near direct light. Life of a migrainer! 🤯but I figure one can’t aver be too careful. Plus I have ones open unfinished from the summer. But it is my stance that, yes, you should weat sunscreen indoors. It’s your best line of defense! Unseen Sunscreen makes me feel as if I have nothing on! My most used, never fail AM routine! ❤️ @cheriefam 🍒

Shop Sephora - Favorite Serums
I could go on and on with so many serums/treatments but I figured I’d cover just the basics. To me, personally, I feel a good skincare routine should have vitamin C & retinol in it. The retinol I use is from Medik8 - Crystal Retinal and hands down is the best I’ve ever tried. I also feel a routine needs Hyaluronic Acid in it and you can’t go wrong using Niacinamide either. First up I always apply a toner after washing and INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner $34 has been my favorite since discovering it over a year ago. I love how hydrating it is. This just leaves my skin feeling calm and refreshed every time I use it. I always keep a mini in my purse which is wonderful during the hot summer months. 😰 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum $7.99 Hyaluronic Serum is always my next step. I want to keep my skin super hydrated and lock that hydration in! I’ve used a handful of HA, some on the pricey end and while I can feel a difference, I don’t feel this is where I need to spend a large amount of money on. I feel more money needs to go into the targeted areas of treatment (vitamin c and retinol). The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% $5.90 I skipped out on this for a few weeks after I had been using it for a full year and let me tell you, I could see a difference. My face just looked dull. And I had been doing everything else except keeping up with my Niacinamide. Once I added it back in my skin responded favorably. It can be a bit “soapy” so I have to just let it settle a bit before moving too quickly onto the next step. But I really find it essential in maintaining a balanced face. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry $62 Ok, again, I have a personal beef with Farmacy but I gotta say I’ve tried a lot of vitamin C’s out there and this one has been the best. I’ve used three bottles and been out for awhile now and really miss it. I’ve been using Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester Serum and am not impressed so far. Personally I love the light cherry scent of Farmacy. Perricone has little to no scent so that is always a plus too. But I really did see changes with Farmacy so I will most likely go back. If you have any questions about any products I have not listed that you are considering purchasing let me know. I have tried out a lot or may know someone to direct you to that can answer them. Also, I HIGHLY URGE YOU TO DO YOUR RESEARCH! Please don’t just purchase something based off what I use as it may not work for you. Put in the time to do some leg-work and research the product. Anytime I am considering purchasing a product I always check out a few sites for reviews (not just the brands as they are bias) and look into the ingredients. Cherie is one an amazing source! The reviews on products are growing by the day! Much love 😘🍒

A roundup review of some pink products I’ve been using! ACURE - Seriously Soothing SPF 30 Day Cream This SPF moisturizer boasts niacinamide and blue tansy to sooth and even skin out in addition to being a moisturizing mineral SPF. I gotta say I’m not a huge fan of moisturizing SPFs in the first place but this one looked nice to me. It’s got a thin consistency coming out the tube but as you spread it on it’s pretty thick and heavy feeling. In about the middle of the ingredients list is coconut oil, a very occlusive and comedogenic oil, so I definitely wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who is oily or acne prone, but it hasn’t broken me out at least. It’s not my favorite SPF I’ve ever used, but if my skin is super dry or sensitive I’ll use this over my others. fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash I love this cleanser! I use it twice a week for some nice exfoliation. I’ve always preferred physical exfoliation over chemical (I know I’m in the minority here) and this one is super gentle! The sugar granules are small and dissolve pretty quickly, and the cleanser itself is a non-foaming jelly, plus it smells like a delicious strawberry smoothie. My skin doesn’t feel dry or tight at all after using it. I will definitely be purchasing the full size when I finish this! FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry This is the serum that changed my opinion about serums! I used to avoid them because I hated the sticky feeling they would leave on my skin, but my skin had been lackluster and I wanted to add a vitamin C to my routine. This serum is amazing y’all! It’s only 15% vitamin C derived from cherries, so it’s gentle and natural, plus it has 4 different derivatives of hyaluronic acid. It just smooths over my skin like butter, I love it, I use it as needed for extra hydration or if I just wanna feel extra glowy, plus it smells so good and sweet! I’m glad I took this plunge, I highly recommend it! ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay I’ve only used this mask twice but so far it’s been really nice. I am a masker, always have been, and while clay masks aren’t really my go-to since I have dry skin, I’m glad I have just this one. It really tightens up my pores and my skin just feels sooo smooth after. It is a bit drying after washing it off but after serum and moisturizer it’s not an issue, and when I wake up my skin feels smooth and clear. Overall i think it does what it claims to do very well!

look inside my travel bag! how’d I do?
look inside my travel bag! how’d I do?
let me start by saying I always always always miss my skincare collection when I travel. it is nearly impossible for me to condense everything I’ll want to use in a small, TSA-approved, clear bag! but here was my last attempt: CLIO - Micro-Fessional Cleansing Oil I use this before I double-cleanse because I use waterproof mascara. this cleansing oil was INCREDIBLE. I didn’t even need a cotton round for this, just applied it using my fingers. it got it all off! smells so good, and non irritating at all! not surprised though, korean skincare is where it’s at . FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm I always double cleanse—my favorite first cleanser is this one. it is hands down the best I’ve ever used. you apply it to dry skin, massage it in, and then add water to emulsify. it rinses completely clean, never leaves residue, and get EVERYTHING off DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is just aight. idk what to say about it. it does it’s job, but I don’t think the brand, it’s values, or the price tags align with me. not into it. I’m just using this so it ends lol. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner the only reason I didn’t give this 5-stars is because it is kinda anti climatic. it didn’t do anything wrong, but it didn’t wow me. I reserve my 5 stars for things that really impress me! CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence I love caudalie, but same. this feels, looks, and smells like water. meh. Embryolisse - Lait Crème Concentré I LOVE this stuff. I’ve used it as a mask, a moisturizer, and as a primer. perfect for everything. but as a mask it definitely protects and brightens! it also lasts a super long time. love this thing. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion top 3 favorite sunscreens of all time. perfect finish, no white cast, absorbs quickly, and leaves the most beautiful finish on my skin. I have a couple backups of this! okay—so how’d I do? would you use my skincare if you needed a routine? let me know in the comments!! ♡

First Impressions: Krave Beauty 🌊
I’ve been wanting to try out this brand for so long because not only did read wonders about its formulations and ingredients but also because of their mission and stance on environmental sustainability 🌱 💡About the Brand: The focus for the brand was to simplify your skin care routine to the essentials and to repair of your skin’s natural barrier function. Alongside simplifying the skin care routine, the company stands for the reduction of overconsumption. For example: using up your products before restocking- this process will help consumers to purchase products less frequently, thus reducing waste and mass production. ❗️ Krave Beauty has 6 products categorized into either core (cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen) or supplement (toner, serum) ✅ The Products: Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream Creamy. Light. Nourishing. Plumpness. I have normal skin leaning toward oily in the summer. When I look for moisturizers I’m not one to look for extra extra light ones. THIS ONE is a good medium between light and heavy. It makes me feel hydrated long after applied. Krave - Great Barrier Relief First thought was - hmm this smells different. I can’t really put my finger on it BUT I don’t think it’s a bad smell. And once you work it in, the smell dissipates. It’s a light weight creamy serum that easily sinks into your skin. I bought this because Liah claims that the Tamanu Oil in the serum will help with scarring and hyperpigmentation. I’m excited to test this out long term and see if my scars fade away! Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser Amazing soft scent. I definitely notice the oat and matcha (since I consume those often 😂). The cleanser is gentle and lightly foams when you work it in. I let my face dry afterwards and sat with it for about 15 minutes and I did not feel dryness AT ALL. 💭 Overall Thoughts: As for a first impression, I don’t think I have any bad things to say about it tbh. No Fragrance. Nourishing Ingredients. Suitable for all skin types. IM A FAN 🤩 I’ll have to check in in a couple of months to give an updated review.

*the beet shield: this is the first sunscreen I’ve ever used and I’m already stocked up after this one runs out. It isn’t oily, it doesn’t leave a cast, and it leaves me with a glow! *matcha hemp cleanser: this cleanser doesn’t leave a tight feeling on my face and hydrates my skin :) it still does the job even when I skip oil cleansing *great barrier relief: anytime I use a new product or overuse a product that breaks me out, this serum is really good at calming my skin down. I can’t layer it with too many things but the purpose is to reset your skin *toner: this toner makes my skin feel really soft. when i first used it it tingled a lot, so I only use it 2 times a week max when I’m not using my mandelic acid. also i only use a little bc using too much hurts my face Through any products I have tried, I’ve always turned back to these and plan on reordering when I run out :)

Review My Nighttime Routine 🌙
Review My Nighttime Routine 🌙
✨ I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone and I also get hormonal breakouts. My skin doesn’t love fragrance and also really benefits from consistency. 🍉At night, I double cleanse to remove make-up, dirt, SPF and impurities. I typically use Farmacy’s Very Cherry Clean balm and Krave Beauty’s Matcha Hemp Cleanser which are gentle and packed with perks from Vitamin C to antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. 🍊After that, I use an eye cream. Lately, I’ve been using my mini Jet Lag mask for this purpose and love it. I find this mask to be so multifunctional and really hydrating. Sometimes I’ll use it as a nighttime moisturizer too but not tonight. 🍋Although it varies depending on the night and need that day of my skin, last night I went in with a retinol once my skin was drier after washing rather than keeping it wet for a different serum like HA, etc. I don’t adore this retinol and have a new one coming from Allies of Skin but this does a good job with cell turnover despite the questionably long ingredient list and questionable customer service/behavior of the brand. 🍏After that, I used this moisturizer by Farmacy which I wasn’t in love with at first but it is growing on me, especially for summertime where I want a bit of a lighter finish compared to some of my winter nighttime moisturizers. 🍇Then to lock everything in, I use this gorgeous oil by Leah Skin. This is an oil that actually can be paired with retinol according to the brand owner because it is a stable form of Vitamin C which is super cool. 🌈 I like this routine quite a lot minus the retinol although it does the job for now. What do you think?

My skincare routine for DRY SKIN
My skincare routine for DRY SKIN
So I have dry skin and it is a bit sensitive and I found that these products worked best for me. I apply it in such order 1) Cleanser 2) Toner 3) Serum/Booster 4) Moisturizer 5) Sunscreen (AM only) For the cleanser LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser I really enjoyed it. It did wonders for my dry skin. It has a creamy milky consistency that doesn’t lather ensuring that your skin isn’t overly stripped. I would also recommend this product if you have sensitive skin because it has 8 ingredients! For sensitive skin it is better to use less ingredients to ensure that your skin doesn’t get irritated. I would compare the consistency to CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser. Next I use a toner. FARMACY - Deep Sweep The only reason I actually use it is because of the BHA. I found it to not be irritating and my skin didn’t have a tingling feeling either. Since I do have dry skin I don’t use it all over my face. I only use it on my chin for whiteheads and on my nose for blackheads. Another plus is that this toner is alcohol free! After that I use a serum/booster. VERSED - HYDRATION STATION Booster With HA This booster is really good and I didn’t find it to be sticky as others might say. It has a lightweight consistency and almost feels like there isn’t anything on your face. After I apply this booster my skin feels really soft and hydrated which is a must for dry skin. Hyaluronic acid offers those benefits. The moisturizer I use is the HONEST - The Daily Calm Lightweight Moisturizer When I found out that Honest Beauty came out with this formula I was impressed because they usually use fragrances (essential oils) in their products. I decided to give it a try because it is fragrance free. However, it had a noticeable scent to it that wasn’t pleasant. Yes it is fragrance free but it just has a noticeable “lotion” type smell that you can smell all day. Besides that one problem I have no complaints. (If you have moisturizer suggestions for dry skin please let me know) Finally I use sunscreen. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ This right here is one of the only sunscreens with zinc oxide that doesn’t leave a white cast. Sunscreen is an essential part of your skincare routine no matter what your skin tone is. You should definitely be using one especially if you exfoliate. It feels like there is nothing on your face. I definitely recommend this one!!
