Acne and Scarring
Acne and Scarring
These photos are a year apart - I took the one on the right this morning. I am going through a transition/purge from switching my whole routine to something that doesn’t overexfoliate, overdry and overstrip like I was doing using some other products. I was beyond determined (still sort of am) to banish the acne and clear up the awful scarring as quickly and as harshly as I could just to fix my skin and after a year I have learned a valuable lesson. Time. Time will give you results. Trust in your skincare routine, don’t switch it up so desperately like I used to. Be patient and gentle with your beautiful skin because it can only take so much. I started over moisturizing and hydrating to fix my barrier, switched to a much more gentle exfoliator and a retinol that doesn’t dry the sh*t out of my skin. And look! It’s working! So instead look to nourish the skin instead of a quick fix and I think you’ll be okay 😘😘 Since this is Cherie, I’ll tag the products that work for ME! Please remember everyone is DIFFERENT and we all have different needs and results.

Is clean always better?
Is clean always better?
Is clean always better? I personally don’t think so! Clean is a broad term used for products that avoid certain ingredients like fragrance, parabens, SLS, alcohols, phthalates and such. But this doesn’t guarantee a product or certain ingredient is safe and fine for your skin. Take Drunk Elephant, they have their Suspicious 6 ingredients they won’t Include...... yet their product hurt my skin and broke me out. Why? L Ascorbate Acid is too strong or harsh of a vitamin c for my skin to handle. It’s a clean ingredient, but doesn’t work for me. Don’t be fooled by clean! While it could be a great way to avoid certain chemicals you don’t like or could more guarantee a cruelty free product, your skin could still react. DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum

I wanted to like this SO BAD. But damn did I ever have a horrid reaction. My face was beat red for so long that I had to wash my face off and apply a sleeping cream to soothe! I think this baby is either much too strong despite being a clean beauty product, or there’s a natural ingredient in it that hates me (I suspect since honey potion did the same thing). People rave about it, but I’d be VERY careful trying it for the first time. 2-3x a week Max, one pump is all you need and maybe mix it with oil or moisturizer!

Clean Beauty......
Clean Beauty......
To me clean beauty has been the #1 focus for my skincare, Haircare and makeup routine. For over a year now I always look for the “clean at Sephora” tag, clean or natural wording on a product or shop at my local clean beauty/health food store. So you would think I’m a big advocate right? Surprisingly no. I don’t personally think “clean beauty” makes a difference. What really should be the focus is ingredients per person. Fragrance could be fine for one person, but irritate another. Dimethicone, octinoxate, phenoxyethanol or ascorbic acid can irritate some skin and be fine for others. Pineapple, cantaloupe, lemon, lavender can be saviours for some and terrifying for others. So clean beauty is about not using the nasties or maybe using more natural ingredients and while that could be a saving grace for someone it can also be unnecessary and less effective for someone else. I would rather see things like “fragrance free” “silicone free” “essential oils free” so that people can more clearly target their issues instead of just trusting a blanket term. ✌🏻

I reach for Milk MAKEUP - Blur Stick whenever I wanna be just a little more dewy. The luminous blur stick has changed my life. I’ve tried the matte as well but the real game changer is the luminous version. Very natural but not over the top with the glow. And covers pores or anything I would like to just subtly fade. I’m not a fan of full coverage makeup and this allows me to have a my skin but better look, which is always the goal.

One of my favorite vitamin C serums in my stash is the SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum with 15% THD Ascorbate, it is supposed to rapidly brighten your appearance & boost vital skin bounce “in a flash”💫 I really enjoy the almost milky texture of this & you can truly smell the citrus of the vitamin C! I have been trying to incorporate this more into my skincare routine because I forgot how much I love this! For its price point, I definitely think it gets the job done. If you’re wanting to try it, I know there are smaller sizes in some of their gift sets. If you’re looking for a GOOD vitamin C serum, this one is for you!

💦 Super hydration. Best water
💦 Super hydration. Best water cream. Holy grail. Love it to the infinity and beyond. 😍❤️⁣ ⁣ That just sums up my thoughts on the Brightening Enzyme Water Cream from SUNDAY RILEY. It’s the BEST hydration product I’ve come across by far.👍🏼⁣ ⁣ With this one cream, I no longer have to apply a few layers of serum. This beats the 3-skin or 7-skin method hands down.⁣ ⁣ I use a mineral sunscreen which can be drying so I have to prep my skin well by hydrating it enough. When I apply this cream after facial toner, I’m good the entire day. 🥰⁣ ⁣ I got this full-sized product from Sephora during a sale 🥳 and after testing it for a month for brightening effects, I have to concede it does improve my complexion but it doesn’t really help with my pigmentation. ⁣ ⁣ Nonetheless, this is still a great product. Well worth every penny. But I’ll still wait for a sale to repurchase it. 😂⁣

🍊🍊🍊Who else looove a vitami
🍊🍊🍊Who else looove a vitamin c?! This is the SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum. I got this in a value set so it is about half the size of the full size product, which retails for $85. Though $85 is quite steep, this is a good product and you can often find it in value sets like I mentioned. This is an interesting vitamin c serum because it has more of a creamy, lotion texture than a lot of other vitamin c serums which are quite thin and watery! It also has a unique formula as it also contains AHAs, so it exfoliates while it brightens. If you use this during the day, make sure to wear SPF (as always) to protect from the increased sensitivity that AHAs cause. I think this is a great product for anyone looking to improve hyperpigmentation in their skin, and i would recommend this to a friend looking to splurge! I give this a 4/5 ⭐️ rating...it is a great serum but the price is a little too high for everyday use!

How I stay “clean”
How I stay “clean”
In my life I slack in most areas for “clean”. I eat poutine and ice cream too often. I drink sweetened coffee more than water and I vape nicotine when I’m stressed. So am I living a clean lifestyle to most people’s definition? Nope! But I have another definition..... My clean lifestyle includes a clean mind. As someone with depression and anxiety I work hard to clear my mind of these negative thoughts that can cloud over so that I can focus on happier things; like my cats, Ice cream, coffee in the morning and applying a good facial oil. By not stressing about my diet too strictly and actively working on quitting vaping but not forcing myself into it, I am living a cleaner life away from negativity!
