How do you heal and treat your skin?
✨I’m gonna share with you my nighttime treatment my skin really appreciates, and how I wake up with much cleaner and radiant skin. ✨ For a very long time , I would always wake up with dull skin and uneven texture. There won’t be any radiance or glow , and its sort of demotivating to start the day like that. Acne wasn’t a big problem but it did occur few times a month and would always leave scars or blemishes. ✨ A while ago I came across a Acne Treatment oil called ‘Meltdown’ by @blume 💕 ✨ What is it? It’s an oil for Acne Prone Skin which you can use to prevent acne, clear acne and blemishes. It’s a blend of all natural ingredients. ✨ Key Ingredients Rosehip, Blue Tansy, Tamanu, Lavender, Black Cumin Seed ✨ My thoughts At nighttime, I usually cleanse my with @blume milk based face wash ‘Daydreamer’ . I really like it because its so creamy and gentle. It doesn’t irritate my eyes or skin. To use ‘Meltdown’ , I mix a few drops of this essential oil based serum with @milkmakeup moisturizer. It calms down any inflammation I have and its a perfect nighttime treatment to heal my skin. Now I wake up with much clearer skin which I can feel confident about and start my day. It really heals the skin overnight and any acne I have goes away in a week or so. Its been amazing to clean up the blemishes, and there are only a few areas left. Also, for the people who weren’t able to use @milkmakeup vegan moisturizer because its too rich, I think it would be a great idea to mix it with an oil/serum so it suits your skin. - - What’re your favourite nighttime treatments?

I recently incorporated BANISH - Vitamin C Cream into my routine and so far it feels amazing! My face is softer but not greasy and my acne scars are starting to fade (will post a before and after when I can see a significant difference). I also like it because it’s in moisturizer (and stabilized) form so I have been able to use it with other treatments as well. I use it in the morning after washing my face with BLUME - Daydreamer Face Wash , toning with PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator , and using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I would highly suggest doing a patch test if you’re gonna be combining these treatments with Vitamin C. I also add in elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 because vitamin c and sunscreen combine beautifully, and also cause sunscreen duh😂 Let me know if you have any questions/comments/feedback :)
My Skincare Routine for acne/acne scars !!!
I’ve been struggling with acne since I was 11 (I’m 21 now) and I feel like I have finally found a way to keep it under control, so I thought I would share: Morning: - BLUME - Daydreamer Face Wash - this is a great gentle face wash that I’ve been using for almost 2 years. I’m allergic to a lot of ingredients on normal face washes so this was a great find - PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator - I only started using this one 4 months ago (after the first picture was taken) and I didn’t really notice the chance until I put both pictures side by side (every other morning) - The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - this product has also helped dramatically with skin texture and acne elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 - this sunscreen is amazing, it almost feels like a moisturizer since it has niacinamide and hyluaronic acid Night: - Same cleanser - The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution - this is a more stronger exfoliator that I think has helped a lot with acne scars (every other night) - Vanicream Daily Moisturizer- I couldn’t tag this product because it is relatively new but this is the first moisturizer I haven’t gotten an allergic reaction to so I love it. It also feels amazing on the skin and has played an important role in my overall skin texture That’s pretty much it! Let me know if you have any questions/comments/feedback :)

I’ve been wanting to try something from Blume for a while now- and this did not disappoint!! I absolutely am in love with this product. My acne has been pretty bad lately, around my chin and jawline. So, I’ve been looking for some new acne products to integrate into my routine. This does the job!!! I apply this oil at the end of my entire night routine (after moisturizer). And I focus putting it on areas where acne is at that time. Over night, it dries them up completely! If they’re little to begin with, they make them disappear. But, if they’re big, it dries them up and then they are gone within a another day/couple days of use. When I wake up my skin is still glowing and moisturized. If you don’t like an oily feeling in the morning, it may bother you, but it just washes off then! I definitely recommend this🤍🤍🤍🤍BLUME - Meltdown Oil for Acne-Prone Skin
Say bye to Acne!
I often deal with hormonal and random breakouts primarily on my forehead, nose and sometimes chin. I have tried so many products over the years to help get rid of acne and these 3 are THE BEST OF THE BEST. The PETER THOMAS ROTH - AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel I love applying all over my face right after cleansing and right before moisturizing. It’s a perfect mix of salicylic acid and glycolic acid. It gets rid of redness and dramatically gets rid of the bump of a pimple. The ROSEN SKINCARE - Break-Out is a perfect treatment to put on top right before bed, it has amazing ingredients and doesn’t dry out your skin. The pimple does flatten by the next morning and it’s almost ready to pop! I absolutely love the BLUME - Meltdown Oil for Acne-Prone Skin it’s perfect to mix into your moisturizer or just tap on top of a pimple. The next morning you won’t even remember you had a pimple. TRUST.

simplicity is key?
life can very easily get in the way sometimes. this can be so severe that, at least in my case, i end up sacrificing things like my skincare routine or other self care, thus making my skin worse and giving me ANOTHER reason to be stressed out. this being said, i’ve abandoned a lot of steps of my routines (which were sometimes 6 steps long!!) to help make my routine quicker and more manageable. am + pm i use these products in this order: cleanse: Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser or THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser tone: THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Toner (i use this every other night) serum/oil: e.l.f. - All the Feels Facial Oil eye cream: zero by skin academy (tried adding this as a new item multiple times but i give up typing it all in every time) moisturizer: e.l.f. - Happy Hydration Cream or Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer (i usually opt for the milk one at night as it is thicker and heavier) spot treatment: THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment (not pictured) sunscreen: live clean mineral face sunscreen SPF 45 #cheriecreator
AFTER PARTY : first impressions
Milk MAKEUP - After Party Skincare Set for $43 CAD, i purchased this set of skincare products from Milk Makeup through Sephora. here is a first impressions of all products you get as listed below: ￼ ￼59ml of Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser regular price $20 CAD, or $40 CAD for 118ml ￼15ml of Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer regular price $25 CAD, or $50 CAD for 48ml ￼a full sized 3g Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm in “green dragon”, regular price $21 CAD ￼AND a milk makeup-branded headband!!! so let’s just get into the review!💗 ￼Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser thoughts: i really like this cleanser so far. it is non-fragranced and foams very nicely. after applying it, it did not make my skin dry or tight-feeling. i give it 4 out of 5 stars only because i have not tried using it to remove eye makeup yet and that is a somewhat big determining factor for me when trying new facial cleansers. also there is, to me, a VERY reasonable amount of product here for a trial run with it. ￼Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer thoughts: this moisturizer is unlike anything i’ve tried before and i’m so into it!!! it is a very thick cream but has this really interesting mattifying quality when applied to the skin. it is also fragrance-free which is awesome! after wearing overnight, my skin feels more supple and definitely still very moisturized. i am definitely considering purchasing the full-sized one when i inevitably empty this little guy!! ￼Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm this lip balm definitely feels like a step up from other lip balms I’ve tried. the packaging is super cool with a magnetic lid. despite being full-sized, i don’t really like that it comes with so little product. i like that the shade i have, green dragon, is green in the packaging then becomes clear when applied. you can definitely tell it is a more natural product as the formula is slightly grainy rather than super smooth which doesn’t bother me. even after it wears off my lips still feel smooth. i only scored it so low because it doesn’t come with enough product for the price in my opinion, and i have no info about long-term use or moisturizing properties quite yet. i really look forward to continuing to use these products and seeing how they work, and if requested i would love to do a follow-up once i empty these (or maybe i won’t?) to see more long term effects. hope you guys enjoyed! feel free to follow here and on my IG @chloebrk.mua #cheriecreator
Products that helped me with mascne (mask acne)
So I work 7 hour shifts at work as a beauty cosmetician at Shoppers Drug Mart (a Canadian version of Ulta? Or Target I guess) My skin type is combo, but more on the oilier side. Acne prone as well. Wearing masks 4-5 days a week for 7 hour shifts has really impacted and sensitized my skin. I wanted to share some products that have helped me calm down my acne and the acne scars! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I saw this hyped up on tiktok and it seemed intriguing to me so I wanted to try. It has made a difference in my skin! I find at it helps control my oil and lightens my acne scars. #Biacna - Tretinoin 0.025% with clindamycin phosphate 1.2%[products]#[FiveStars] This topical gel has a higher level of retinol in it! I used to use 0.04% in high school but it hasn’t really made a difference now. It does dry out my skin, as a side effect but I make sure I use a more richer mosturizer when I use it (only in the night time routine). It renews my skin faster and HELPS greatly with the pigmentation my acne leaves. It has vitamin A and a thin layer is all you need. (Less is more) Btw: it’s an Rx (prescription) LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Sensitive Riche This moisturizer is the one I use in the night time when I use my Rx. In the morning, I use the fluide version as it’s the same formula but just in a gel consistency, great for summer and lightweight. It’s very hydrating and I can literally feel my skin taking in the moisture it needs from wearing a mask all day! Wearing masks have made my skin irritated, sensitive, and break out excessively. It’s got ceramides to repair the skin barrier, vitamin B3 to soothe the skin, and their La Roche Posay thermal spring water to clam and reduce irritations. The best part is: it’s Non comedogenic (always a must for my acne prone skin) Hypoallergenic Alcohol free Paraben Free Fragrance free Not wearing makeup has made a difference in my skin as well. If I want to wear makeup at work, I focus on eyeliner/ eyeshadow looks for my eyes instead. DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil THIS. IS. AMAZING. I have never tried a cleansing oil before but ITS A MUST in my night time routine. I can ACTUALLY feel the oil and dirt coming off my skin, and I do many blackheads and oil plugs have LITERALLY FELL OFF MY SKIN. My skin thanks me so much for double cleansing! This one smells like olive oil but that doesn’t bother me. It’s got no fragrance I believe and a little goes a long way. I got mine from Amazon!

My Quarantine Skin Transformation
The first picture was taken March 20 and the second was just yesterday. I’m honestly shook to be honest. My skin was scaley and dry. I had no routine. I had lost all of my skincare stuff and was washing my face with water and would use rosehip oil to moisturize. Then I used the MARIO BADESCU - Peptide Renewal Serumand my skin WENT CRAZY. Bumps EVERYWHERE. Skin going insane. My skin has never looked like this. Then I finally got some money to buy some skincare stuff and this is what I’ve got: Oil Cleanser : KOSE COSMEPORT - SOFTYMO Speedy Cleansing Oil- I don’t know if this is working yet. It takes off makeup. I’m terrified of oil on my face but it’s not done bad yet. I did break out a little bit after I started using it but it could be purging. I use this every night and morning for 60 seconds on dry skin. Foaming Cleanser: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin- I like this. It’s not drying I feel clean and my face feels good after wards. I use this right after oil cleansing. Toner: THAYERS - Witch Hazel AstringentI use this one in Aloe. OK SO I KNOWWW THAT PEOPLE DONT LIKE THIS. But it really changed my face. Before using it, my face was really bumpy even thought I was cleaning and moisturizing and exfoliating but this really soothed my skin and made everything go on better. I use this around my neck area too because it’s dark. Exfloliator: Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin PerfectorThis helped my skin like get rid of bumps and dryness but it also makes my skin red which I don’t like. But for now Im using it. I would recommend this to start off your exfoliating journey. MOISTURIZER: Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face CreamI like this. It saved my dry skin it really hydrates and it’s not annoying. When you use it after the solution it does burn a bit. Just a warning but i really like this. SPF: Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily SunscreenAnother glossier product. This isn’t sponsored I just did a big order. This is nice it’s a gel consistency which i genuinely love. And it’s been helping my dark spots according to cherie hehe ANYWAYS my skin is doing a LOT better but there are still problems with it. I have pimples. LOTS of blackheads. large pores. Hopefully with time I can correct those. Anyways till next time 😜
CeraVe-Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin
As of November 2019, for the first time I have acne at the age of 27. I had changed so much about my lifestyle at that point it’s hard to determine what’s causing it (started going to the gym, started eating meat again, started a new job, and changed my skin care routine). My skin has always been sensitive and is also dehydrated. Here I am months later, and my face is still an acne mess. I’ve tried everything under the sun. I believe my acne to be fungal which mean I should avoid an oily products as they can further clog my pores. Fungal acne happens when the skin and hair folicles are producing too much sebum and yeast. Currently this is my routine: - PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Cloud Cream Cleanser - PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydrating Toner Mist -The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Solution - LANEIGE - Water Bank Hydro Essence - Aesop - Seeking Silence Facial Hydrator This routine is new for me, as I recently learned oils were no good for my skin type. My previous routine included 2 oils with the same cleanser. Would love to get any feedback and or recommendations
The Ordinary-Salicylic Acid 2% Solution
start of my clear skin journey! (read desc. pls)
Check recent posts for skin updates! Also I may make changes to my routine! here are before pictures of my skin. i will be using these products daily and seeing how my skin reacts! i’ve done a lot of research (and watched a lot of hyram) and i think these products are right for my skin. my skin: • more on the oily side, but can get super dry • very acne prone, i get all kinds of it (cystic, whiteheads, blackheads, etc.) • not very sensitive • i have a bad habit of picking • some scarring products: panoxyl face wash - has the highest concentration of benzoyl peroxide that you can find, which is great for treat existing breakouts and preventing future ones differin gel retinoid - my dermatologist has put me on adapelene gel before and i have run out during quarantine so i have substituted with this and it’s working well. it helps keep my skin smooth and to prevent breakouts, and it also helps with anti-aging and scarring. the ordinary niacinamide and zinc serum - hyram says this is his favorite serum from the ordinary, and says it can be great for people with problem skin. the box says it helps with pores and complexion. “blemish formula” can help with scarring cerve daily moisturizer - i use this as a normal moisturizer after i apply my other products. it has ceramides and such in it that help with moisture. i am using this to keep my skin hydrated, not for my acne. cerave facial sunscreen - i use this to protect my skin. sunscreen is an essential step in a skincare routine. the sun is very damaging. sunscreen is the key to keep your skin looking supple and young. neosporin - this may sound weird to use but it does wonders since i have a horrible habit of picking my breakouts. when i pick, they scab over so i use this as an overnight healing treatment for the scabs (can also be used for dry spots) and it helps them heal quicker. the ordinary chemical exfoliant mask - i think this will help me because chemical exfoliant are very good for flushing out unwanted dead skin and such that can be clogging pores. it’s like a reset for your skin. i will be using this once a week. morning routine: • panoxyl face wash • the ordinary serum • moisturizer + sunscreen night routine: • panoxyl face wash • differin retinoid • the ordinary serum • moisturizer • neosporin on scabs/dry spots
New to skincare and looking for suggestions
Hi all. I'm relatively new to this whole properly taking care of my skin thing. I have combination skin, uneven skin tone, large pores and redness/discolouration. I've recently incorporated these products: Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Creami think i'm going to switch this out to the regular skin, as i'm finding it really makes my face oily. I do, however, need the moisturizer mostly around/on my nose. Or for when my pimples dry out. C&C by Clean & Clear - Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strengthuse this mostly as a spot treatment. It dries my skin out a little bit, but i find it really helps flatten my pimples pretty quickly. I've only been using this product for a few days. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%literally just started using this today. As you can tell, i have MASSIVE pores. I have for as long as i can remember. Lately, it's really bothering me that my makeup sinks into my pores. I got a new pore primer today though and, so far, I'm impressed! Neutrogena - Pore Refining Cleanseronly been using this one for a few days. So far i'm pretty happy with it! Feels great on my skin and the scrub has been helping remove dry skin. I have also started using a salicylic acid acne treatment, for Clean & Clear. It's supposed to help remove blackheads. I have always been very nervous to use toners as I had bad luck with the Pro Activ system as a teen. This dries my skin out a bit, but i do find it helps reduce the oiliness throughout the day, especially at work when I have a full face of makeup on. I'm trying to give my skin as much of a break as possible when I'm not at work. I wake up really oily no matter what, but I'm wondering if this is just a regular thing for people? I hate it lmao I'm extremely self concious about my skin. I hate it and I have since i first got acne at age 10. It was so bad, I'm pretty sure my pores are also so big because they're probably partially acne scars. Any suggestions would be great!! I find my skin is a little sensitive, but i'm quickly getting used to the burning of the toner lol Thanks in advance :)

This Anti-Inflammaging Serum Can Teach Your Skin How to Heal ItselfMeet Heraux (pronounced hero), the serum that just might save your skin.Dec. 31, 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.4 DAYS AGO
