8 Tips For Shaving
So my previous post I made was 10 Tips for Waxing but waxing isn’t for everyone so here are some tips on shaving. Exfoliate before, this helps to get rid of dead skin and lift the hair.RAW SUGAR - Sugar Scrub Pineapple + Maqui Berry + Coconut Use a quality razor, I only shave my legs and from my experience men razors work better. I’ve tried all the women razors and they Just don’t give me a clean shave. BIC Soleil - Men's Flex 5 Razor Use shaving cream or a moisturizing body wash when shaving, never shave on dry skin.SheaMoisture - Raw Shea Butter Body Wash I use this body wash Take your time , rushing when shaving can cause you to cut yourself and miss hairs. Shave in opposite direction of hair growth, this helps with cutting the hairs. I’ve heard of people shaving in the same direction of hair but for me that doesn’t work. Moisturize after with lotion, cream or oil, this keeps the skin hydrated and helps to prevent ingrown hairs. Use a clean razor every time you shave, do not reuse razors. If skin is irritated , razor burn, ingrown worsen stop shaving and treat your skin. Skincare is important when it comes to shaving so exfoliating and moisturizing will keep your skin looking it’s best #cheriecreator

10 Tips For Waxing At Home
Many women and men have started waxing at home during quarantine, I have heard many stories from my clients about their at home wax experience. Some hilarious others a lil concerning so here are some tips if you are going to wax yourself at home. Its important to educate yourself first ! Google and YouTube are your best friend so do your research on waxing the good and the bad. You have to know what you are getting yourself into and just because it looks easy doesn’t mean it is. There is so much more to waxing than laying a strip and pulling. Quality wax ! Many go with the what I call duck tape wax. You know those strips you buy at your local drugstore you warm between your hands , apply to the area you want to wax, pull and nothing comes up lol. Invest in a wax warmer , wax beads, sticks and skincare. 🌸Here are some waxing supplies I suggest GiGi - At Home Beginner Waxing Starter Kit Take your time ! Waxing yourself will take longer than when another waxes you. Make sure you take your time , testing the wax, laying the strip correctly etc. DONT RUSH THE PULL now along with temperature and we’ll get into that in a min. How you pull the strip is so important. Hold the skin taught, pull strip parallel to the body going opposite of hair growth, apply pressure after. There are some key things here now if you don’t hold the skin and pull the strip you can bruise 😩 pulling the strip parallel to the body makes sure you aren’t breaking hairs and are pulling them from the root. Apply pressure after the pull stops the pain from traveling. Temperature , before you apply that wax to your skin it’s very important to test the temperature. If it’s liquid it’s too hot for the skin. The more solid the cooler. Test a bit on your inner arm to test temperature. Skincare ! Now with s waxing skincare is very important to keep away ingrown hairs and keep your skin looking it’s best. Exfoliating , moisturizing and a ingrown treatment. Every 3 to 4 weeks is when you should wax again, the hair will be grown out enough to be pulled. Now this varies because some people hair grows slower so it maybe 5 to 6 weeks for some. If you are unsure or are having a hard time don’t continue waxing yourself and wait to get it professionally done. You don’t want to injure yourself and at home waxing isn’t for everyone and that’s fine. Don’t go over a spot more than 3 times , you don’t want to irritate the skin so if the hair doesn’t come up tweeze it or leave it for the next wax cycle. PAY ATTENTION TO HOW YOUR SKIN REACTS if you lay a strip and pull it and you skin is red, shiny and or starts to get hives/ welts stop immediately. Your skin will tell you exactly how it feels lol and the first sign of irritation/ reaction you want to pay attention to. There are so many tips I could go on and on lol but if you have any questions about waxing at home let me know in the comments #cheriecreator

How to Use Vitamin C in Skincare?
Vitamin C is a very popular skincare ingredient for years. It is an essential nutrient which deplete as we age. It is also known as L-ascorbic acid. It is one pf the most important antioxidants within the cell to neutralize free radicals. All skin types need vitamin C. UV radiation or pollutants are two main resources of oxidative stress as the mainly causes aging. Vitamin C is working to stop the chain of that reaction to protect skin from aging. At the same time, it also takes part in skin’s natural regeneration process to repair damaged cells. The benefits of having Vitamin C in your skincare process are: - Anti-aging (as mentioned already) by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and winkles; - Brightening and evens out skin tone and acting like a shield from UV light and free radical damage. - Building collagen in cells - Anti-pigmentation Meanwhile there are also side effects like irritation and probably tingling. Let’s take a look and see what Vitamin C in skincare products. It works well with Ferulic acid, Vitamin E or three of them together. Be aware that it may have negative impact when acting with Retinoids or Benzoyl peroxide. In your skin care process, make sure that you wear SPF after using Vitamin C. Cause it oxidize really fast and you don’t want your skin to look sallow. And since it oxidize really fast, do not use if it is oxidized already in containers. You may also want to store your skincare products that contains vitamin C in a cool dark, dry place o prevent from oxidation. DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum Personally I like to go with a Vitamin C serum. When you choose serums, there are a few point you should be aware of: forms of vitamin C; packaging (oxidation); and concentration. Some product with Hight concentration would have side effects like irritation. In your skincare process, agood rule of thumb is to cleanse, tone, vitamin C serum, and then moisturize.One thing I really love about drunk elephant serum is that It isn’t too potent or harsh. The results were not immediate and you do need to be somewhat patient with. It felt a bit too sticky in the beginning but later on my skin began to love it. And the result is great. This bottle is almost gone and I can see it brightened and evened out my skin tone.

FULLER LIPS IN 5 MIN 👄 WEEK OF MASKS DAY: 2✨
TRULY - Heartbreaker Jelly Lip Plumping Mask This mask works wonders for my lips! It contains witch hazel and peppermint oil which helps plump up the lips. I like to apply this right before going out to create a fuller-lip appearance. The tingling you feel when applied is not uncomfortable for my sensitive skin. I leave the mask on for about 5-10 minutes than wash off. The only annoying part is sometimes the glitter and heart sequins get left behind when wiped off. I will continue to use this product and buy again, and again 💗

Camille Rose Naturals for The Win!
🌹Camille Rose Naturals is one of my favorite natural hair brands. My look in this picture is pretty much all natural - I brushed out my curls and used the Coconut Water Leave in for hydration and softness. That’s it! The Almond Jai Twisting Butter is a holy grail product for a lot of people, but it’s quite thick so I only use it for protective styles as it’s too heavy for daily use. Who doesn’t love a good fro’ moment? 😎

The Do’s and Don’ts for Oily, Acne Prone Skin
Knowing your skin type and skin condition is the first step to treating it. I personally have dehydrated yet oily acne prone skin. The right type of products in a routine can make a huge difference. *Disclaimer: I love all the products above except the Clinique toner (Dont use this please). I will explain below why things are good or bad for acne. Step 1: Cleanse Do - Use gel cleanser like the FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser . The gel formula will deep cleanse the face without stripping. Don’t - Use a cream cleanser like the GEORGETTE KLINGER - Green Tea Cream Cleanser . This is more geared towards dry skin. It will cleanse and hydrate but won’t give you the deep cleanse oily/acne prone skin needs. Step 2: Treat Do - Use a product with salicylic acid like PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator . Salicylic acid is oil soluble and will dive deep into your pores breaking up any sebum or debris. Don’t - Use something with detnatured alcohol like the CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 3 . It may feel good at first but the alcohol is stripping your skin and does more harm than good. In the end your face will over compensate for the stripping effect and produce more oil. Step 3: Moisturize Do - Use a gel moisturizer like the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream Safe for Sensitive Skin . I love this because it is free of a lot of skin irritants like fragrance and dyes. The gel formula won’t feel too heavy on the skin but will give you all the hydration benefits you need. Don’t- Use a heavy, cream moisturizer like the Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer . Heavy creams are more geared for dry skin. For oily skin it will just sit on top potentially clogging pores (plus I do believe this has some comedogenic ingredients). These are basic steps I’ve been using for a while to make my skin routine the best is can be for my skin concern. If you have any questions about any steps or products let me know below. 🖤 /*some products gifted
