5 Do’s and 2 Don’t’s to treat your hyperpigmenta

glowwitherin
We all have gone through dark spots I’m sure, whether it’s from an old acne spot, a sun spot or a scar. It’s disheartening when we want that beautiful even looking skin and then there are these dots of red or brown in the way. I have significant acne scarring and hella dry skin from years of cystic acne and destroying my skin.... so I’m going to give you my best tips! Do: Vitamin C! It’s a powerhouse antioxidant ingredient that fights free radical damage that can make these spots appear or even worsen them. It’s proven to lighten up and even skin tone for that beautiful bright glow! I love the Tatcha Violet C mask for weekly use as it somehow just brightens the skin quite instantly! TATCHA - Violet-C Radiance Mask
Do: chemical exfoliation. This is your AHA products to dissolve the glue that is holding the dead and damaged skin to the surface. It helps get rid of them so healthier cells can find their way to the surface and shine! Honeymoon Glow from Farmacy is a fan favourite. Take it easy tho, a couple times a week is fine. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum
Or you can do the ordinary peel once a week! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Do: Niacinamide. This is another superstar ingredient that will brighten up the skin and help those spots look lighter. It’s also good for oil control so that acne doesn’t pop up and cause more spots! The new cream from Caudalie is beautiful and will moisturizer at the same time! CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide
Do: Hydrate!! When treating skin concerns it can be easy to just dry the skin out and attack it with treatments. We forget how delicate our skin is. SO HYDRATE AND MOISTURIZE MORNING AND NIGHT!! Your skin will always look more healthy this way. Do: SPF! If you ain’t protecting the skin from damage, all the effort in your skincare is pointless. Protect from the sun who will cause those spots to get worse and even create them. Protect your precious newly exfoliated and brightened skin so it stays healthy. I don’t care the excuses. EVERYDAY! The new one from First Aid Beauty is lightweight, non greasy, gives a slight glow with its tint and works well under makeup FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30
Don’t: Over do it. Please keep the chemical exfoliation to once a week for a strong treatment or 3-4x a week for a more regular treatment. Overdoing it will literally make your skin 10x worse and more damaged, red and sore. Don’t: FORGET THE SPF. But also, please keep suntanning or tanning beds and such to a minimum. This will not clear your skin. It’s not worth it if you want clear skin. Bonus: Do not, please, do not pick at your face!! It’s satisfying to pop pimples or scratch a scab, but the scar lasts too long for it to be worth it.

⚡️SKIN SAVIOR SERUMS ⚡️
These are some of my newer serums that I’ve been using for a few months now and I’m totally in love!! Here’s how I use them and what they do for me 🥰 My Skin Type: Very Combination, Rosacea, Light skin tone, 21 yrs old PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum Price: $39/40 mL Ingredients: niacinamide, peach extract, peptides, hyaluronic acid Thoughts: This serum is PERFECT for combination skin! Its super hydrating and also controls excess oil production with the niacinamide/HA combo. I find that it really makes my skin look healthy and balanced and keeps breakouts at bay. I usually use niacinamide products at night because I tend to get the most oily over night. Love it so much!💕 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Price: $58/1 oz Ingredients: AHA, BHA, flower acids, honey, HA Thoughts: Easily my favorite chemical exfoliator! Much gentler than The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which I do love but rarely feel that I am able to use because my skin is easily sensitized, but this farmacy serum gets the job done and I LOVE that its a serum that I can leave on over night and wake up to soft glowy skin! PAULA'S CHOICE - Defense Antioxidant Pore Purifier Price: $31/1 oz Ingredients: salicylic acid, vit C, licorice root, ceramides, coq10, other antioxidants Thoughts: this is my GO TO morning serum! Not only does it clear my pores and keep my oil production at bay, as well as reduce the inflammation of any acne I’m experiencing, its also very hydrating and protects your skin from free radicals and aging! Its really such a well rounded product that does a bit of everything and works so well, my favorite PC product ❤️ Krave - Great Barrier Relief Price: $28/45 mL Ingredients: tamanu, sunflower, & rosehip oils, squalane, vit b3, ceramides Thoughts: a GREAT moisturizer for when your skin is super dehydrated or sensitive, it really gives a great reset. I gave it 4 stars because its marketed as a serum when its very much a cream-consistency, and I cant use it too often because the oils tend to clog my T zone. However it definitely does what its meant to do and when nothing else helps, this product DOES! Have you tried these serums? Whats your favorite? Lmk any questions you have!!

How many masks are too many...?
I used to love masking! I’d do at least 1 to 2 a week. Now I’ve gotten lazy and just don’t do them and I have so many I need to start using before they expire! For me, I feel having an exfoliating mask and a hydrating mask is all you need. Unless your using the product consistently you’re not going to see changes. Masks are great for plumping up the skin, adding hydration and even a soft glow. But of all the masks I’ve used I’ve never found long term effects from them (except exfoliating). One way I like to use them is right before a big night (or day) out. To give my skin that added boost. Some that are great for doing so are: FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask (use as a 10 min mask) SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask And many others that help brighten and hydrate! I will also not go without my exfoliating masks which I do once a week. Some faves are: PAULA'S CHOICE - 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial And a few others I have that I liked to use; BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Detox Mask ELEMIS - Superfood Vital Veggie Mask bliss - Mighty Marshmallow Mask Unfortunately as I said, I just don’t mask as often as I used to. And I feel it isn’t necessary. If you like to then I suggest you get yourself an exfoliating and moisturizing/hydrating mask and you should be good to go. Treatments are where you want to really zone in and specialize your finances for. Is it Friday yet? Ugh! I’ve been down all week with a neck I cannot turn - ouchie! And a migraine on top of that! I’m ready to knock my dogs out cause they are wanting out every half hour (it’s nice here ⛅️) Much ❤️ my skinnies 🍒

Trending Skincare Super Ingredients
I’ll start out by telling you a bit about my skin; it’s sensitive and normal-dry depending on the season. I also have rosacea on my cheeks. I am always looking for skincare that hydrates, soothes, and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I am 31 years old and have just recently started adding some anti-aging products into my routine, though I can thankfully say I don’t have many signs of aging yet🤞🏻 Today I’m going to tell you about some skincare “super ingredients” that you might have been hearing about because they have become very popular in the skincare world. Ashwaganda - ashwaganda is an ancient medicinal herb that is classified as an adaptogen, which means it can help your body manage stress. In skincare, and this YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi in particular, it is said to help reduce visible signs of fatigue. This moisturizer is targeted for people with dry, sensitive, and reactive skin. the texture of this is lovely, it’s not too heavy but feels incredibly hydrating on the skin. it has very little to no smell, which I really appreciate it definitely helps me with redness and dryness I would for sure repurchase this Niacinamide - niacinimide is an essential nutrient that can help build proteins in the skin and lock in moisture to prevent environmental damage. The CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution and CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide both contain niacinimide and claim to even the skin tone and give the skin a glowing appearance. the texture of both of these products is lightweight; the serum is a milky consistency and the moisturizer is a gel-cream. I wish that the moisturizer was a little more hydrating; I can’t really use it once the weather gets cold because it’s just not hydrating enough for me both of these products are quite strongly scented, some may find it overpowering I feel like they both make a difference in the overall appearance of my skin. They definitely help to brighten and even out my skin. I’m unsure if I would repurchase the moisturizer, but would repurchase the serum Retinol - retinol supports natural collagen production in the skin, nurtures the skin, and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Skin Lab Retinol Serum is said to be for beginner retinol users and for those with sensitive skin. There are different strengths of retinol and it is advised that you work your way up to a higher concentration as your skin adjusts. Retinol has a bit of a bad reputation in some ways because it is a very aggressive ingredient but when used properly, it can be extremely beneficial and effective. the texture isn’t overly thick and it sinks into the skin quickly unscented too new to my routine to say if I’d repurchase yet #CheriePartner

My Caudalie Favorites
Wanted to show some love for one of my favorite brands during today’s post! When I first got into skincare, Caudalie was always a brand I wanted to try. They focus on clean, sustainable skincare that leaves your skin smooth and glowing! ⁣ ⁣ My two favorite products from them are the CAUDALIE - CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir and the CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide ! Both are a little on the pricier side for me but they are lasting forever! When I use them in the morning it gives my skin that lit from within glow! I’ve found that some people love their products and for others, they’re just meh.

Halloween Skincare 👻🎃💀
Halloween is this weekend and it’s so important for me to prep my skin a day before I’m about to put on a bunch of heavy makeup! I am no stranger to a full face of glam but when it comes to creating a Halloween makeup look it’s so important to make sure your skin is looking at its best before even starting. I love to use products that provide me with hydration and brighten up my skin so that my makeup really sits well on my skin. The fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum is perfect to apply before moisturizer because it leaves your skin so hydrated and leaves such an amazing dewy glow. Not to mention the scent of roses always gets me in a great mood! The FENTY SKIN - Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum is great because it contains niacinamide which will help brighten the skin and since it’s a thick consistency it acts like a toner and essence in one. It’s so great for really providing a great canvas for makeup. TATCHA - Violet-C Radiance Mask I love to use this mask in the morning as a boost of vitamin c if leaves my skin so vibrant and soft HUDA BEAUTY - Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer this moisturizer is so hydrating but light weight and it leaves the most beautiful pearlescent glow behind. You can skip the highlighter if you use this product. All these products work so beautifully together to create the most perfect base! You’ll be Halloween ready in no time!

Major SPF Myth ☀️❌
Here’s the deal...no matter how much we all don’t want to...SPF doesn’t last Especially if you wear a mineral SPF At best our sunscreen will only protect us for about 2 hours The sun will naturally break down all sunscreen actives and with the wear and tear of daily routines you are more likely to just wipe them off by accident, especially if you are sweating in the hot sun! What is your favourite SPF product for reapplication? These are my go tos as someone who doesn’t wear makeup FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I would love to try a PA filter sunscreen soon, any recs?

What is the importance of SPF
SPF is important as sun protection ie. to protect your skin from the suns ultraviolet rays. During the aging process collagen and elastin fibres become weaker and sun exposure causes this to happen at an even more rapid pace. The ultraviolet rays from the sun can cause cell damage, pigmentation, wrinkles/fine lines to occur. UVA Rays are known as the Aging Rays, as they have longer wavelengths, penetrate all 3 layers of the skin, cause genetic damage, weaken collagen & elastin and can result sagging. UVB rays are known as the Burning Rays, which are shorter in wavelength, penetrate the epidermis and can be therefore more damaging to the skin & eyes. Melanin is the pigment that naturally protects the skin from the sun. Melanin can be altered by exposure to the sun. When the body is injured, DNA is stimulated by the hormones to produce more melanin. There are two types of sunscreens: Mineral/Physical and Chemical. Mineral or Physical sunscreens are made up of organic material aka from carbon. The two active ingredients in mineral sunscreens are: zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Chemical sunscreens are inorganic aka not from carbon. The most common active ingredients for chemical sunscreens are: octinoxate, octisalate, oxybenzone, avobenzone, homosalate and octocrylene. When shopping for a sunscreen you want to look for one that is 30 or higher for maximum protection, and if it is a mineral sunscreen at least 15% or higher for maximum protection. The number on the bottle of sunscreen, is based on UVB rays - how long it takes for redness to appear on the skin and SPF works best when reapplied. My two favourite sunscreens are the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 (available at Sephora) and Avène - VERY HIGH PROTECTION CREAM SPF50+ (available at the drugstore) #CheriePartner

Drunk Elephant Line Rapid Review: Part 1
Drunk Elephant Line Rapid Review: Part 1
Brief peeks into my latest opinions of various Drunk Elephant products: • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample is a deep-cleaning gel cleanser that is strong enough to take off sweat and sunscreen, but I find it needs a primary cleanse if I’m wearing makeup. Can be bit harsh if I’m having an eczema flare-up but is otherwise gentle and good for most skin. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser is a super gentle balm cleanser that I love to leave on as a moisturizing mask before I use it to wash off my makeup. Doesn’t irritate my eyes and is perfect for sensitive skin. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum is a potent vitamin c serum that lightens hyperpigmentation very well within months of use. However, it is too potent for my skin, so I dilute it heavily if I use it. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum makes skin so soft and smooth! It helps bumpy texture wonderfully. Again, super potent- I have to be sure to use a small amount dilute in a serum and applied over top of my moisturizer. Improves skin texture very fast. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream is and always will be a favourite. Creamy yet fluffy. Rich and quenching. Perfect for sensitive skin. Never leaves me shiny! • DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask is another favourite- it’s perfect for dehydrated, dry, or sensitive skin. I always use it after an acid product to prevent inflammation and sensitivity. A surprising texture, due to the beads of fatty acids, and it soaks in quickly. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask is so, so, so potent! It’s amazing. A single use leaves my skin baby soft and glowing. However, the potency that gives instant results makes it so strong that I can only use it every other week. But I’ll keep doing so because it’s so wonderful feeling my smooth, soft skin afterwards. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil is the best oil I’ve ever tried in terms of super fast absorption and lack of shine. It leaves me dewy, not greasy, and a couple drops is the perfect boost to my moisturizers. It is a bit pricy though considering I only use it in the PM unless it’s winter, making the quick absorption only important for 3 months of the year. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 No white cast, no tingling, no congestion. Buuut I am a little shiny if I use this in the summer, so this is my preferred winter sunscreen and would be perfect for dry-skinned folks.

🐰My skin type/concerns- I have very dry skin in the winter and a normal skin type during the summer! Occasionally I will get bad acne throughout the year, I also have bad redness and hyperpigmentation, and pores! 🐰this review is for products I have tried to minimize my pores! ✅worked ❌didn’t work 🐭Product list: ✅Belif Aqua bomb moisturizer- I discovered this moisturizer about 8 months ago and fell in love! I love using this moisturizer morning and night, it is amazing at minimizing the look of my pores! I see a huge difference from before and after I use this! It’s amazing ingredients is everything that helps with my pores! ✅drunk elephant t.l.c serum- I discovered this serum from a friend recommending this to me after trying it and telling me how much it helped minimize her pores! I have been using this for about 6 months! I always use this at night because I know when I wake up my pores look super reduced and my skin is very soothed for when I start the day! I always use this right before applying eye cream and moisturizer! This serum is very lightweight and gives me the perfect hydration my skin needs, and is amazing with minimizing my pores overnight! ✅Glow recipes watermelon sleeping mask- I saw this all over social media when it came out, and when I saw some reviews for it I knew it would be perfect for my skin and I immediately bought it! I have been using this for about 6 months! I also only use this at night and whenever I use it before bed I see the biggest difference in my pores when I wake up! I use this right after I cleanse my face! The very thick consistency of this is super helpful before going to bed because I know I will wake up with super moisturized skin! ❌tatcha water cream- I found this moisturizer from a family member recommending it to me, and saying how much it helped with her pores! I saw the pricy price tag but I still went for it! I used it for a couple months of the summer, and it was perfect for my summer skin type! But when winter came around this was not giving my skin the hydration it needs, and I learned this is more for oily type skin! This didn’t change the look of my pores at all, I saw no difference when I used this at night and when I would wake up nothing changed! I used this as one of the last products in my routine!GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask TATCHA - The Water Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C.

My daily skin care routine for oily skin
Hey Babes!! 👋🏼 My skin hasn’t looked this good in so long, so I want to share with you my regimen for oily skin 😍😍😍. CLEANSERS: So daily in the morning and evening I either use the Murad - Essential-C Cleanser or the Shira - Pure Eucalyptus Cleanser . I find myself using the Murad 🍊 cleanser during the morning ☀️ more often because the vitamin c has antioxidants and brightens the skin. Plus it smells AMAZING!! The Shira cleanser has eucalyptus 🌱 which is great for oily or acneic skin because it has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties!! It also smells like you’re stepping into a spa and doesn’t irritate the skin. 😍 The Shira brand is also organic, natural and vegan friendly. 🙌🏼 In the evening 🌝 I will double cleanse with these products too in no specific order. 😂 EXFOLIATOR: SKIN SCRIPT - Raspberry Refining Cleanser I use every 3/4 days when my skin feels dull. MOISTURIZER: I’ve always been a Murad fan 💙💙, so my go to is their Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel !! (Not pictured) I’ve posted about this before and why I like it. It leaves my face baby soft and since it’s water based, my skin isn’t left looking oily. I use this daily in the morning and evening. MORNING DAILY SERUM: I recently discovered a great new brand and love their vitamin c serum. insta natural - Triple Strength Vitamin C Serum !! This serum is very lightweight and contains niacinamide to balance oil production and glycolic acid to exfoliate and remove dead skin leaving a gorgeous glow. 🌟✨ the vitamin c has antioxidants to prevent free radicals which damaged your skin causing wrinkles and fine lines. It also brightens your skin if you have any acne scars or dark spots. 😍🥰 EVENING DAILY SERUM: I’m loving YEOUTH - Retinol, 2.5% Serum ! Aside from retinol, this serum has Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid. The aloe will soother and the Hyaluronic Acid attracts moisture to your skin so it’s not left dry. 💧 💧. Retinol is great because it’s a form of vitamin A that exfoliates. It’s gentle enough for daily use and does not irritate my skin. Because this does have aloe Vera, the serum applies sticky, but dries smooth. I like using this at night because that’s the time your skin will start to heal and regenerate (another reason why it’s important to double cleanse). SUNSCREEN: A must!!! Anytime you exfoliate, you need to wear sunscreen!!I’ve been using MDSolarSciences - Mineral Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UVA-UVB Sunscreen over 2 years now and it’s my go to. This physical sunscreen doesn’t clog pores and doesn’t leave a white cast. It leaves your skin looking matte, which is oily skin people love. 😍😍 I hope this helps you and inspires everyone to start their own regimen!! Please comment with any questions! ❤️❤️ Xoxo, Blyssey #cheriecreator

Oily Skin Glow Up ✨
Oily Skin Glow Up ✨
I know usually when you have oily skin the last thing you want to do is have a glowy complexion. Usually it’s matte everything. Mayttifying Toner. Matte primer. Matte foundation. But there are the occasional times I like a little bit of glow to my skincare. I believe there is a line between oily and glowing and you can achieve it with the right products. I, personally, have oily acne prone skin. When I want a little bit more of a glow I go with this routine: 1.) Cleanse - GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Cleansing Gel Gel cleansers are amazing for oily skin! You’re going to get the deep cleanse you need without stripping your skin. I like the fact this one has vitamin C included which is going to help give your skin a boost to brighten a dull complexion. 2.) Treat - Murad - Vitamin C Glycolic Brightening Serum As much as I like the cleanser including vitamin C you’re going to get the most benefits out of a leave on treatment. This treatment pairs vitamin C with glycolic acid to give you a brighter, healthier looking complexion. The glycolic acid (which is great for oily skin!) is a chemical exfoliator that buffs away the dull dead skin cells to enhance the delivery of the vitamin C. It also has a little bit of a shimmer to the product which gives you a beautiful lit from within glow. It absorbs easily and feels really lightweight so oily skin isn’t bogged down all day like it can with other “glowy” products. 3.) Moisturize - GLAMGLOW - Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow (travel size) Now if I really want to have a glow I pull this out. You can really replace this with any gel moisturizer you have but this one does have a bit of nude shimmer in it that will help contribute to your glow up! It’s a very light weight gel consistency and a little goes a long way. 4.) Sunscreen - KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 If you’re exfoliating or using vitamin C you HAVE to wear sunscreen. No ifs, ands, or buts. You have to. Those products, as beneficial as they are, make your skin a lot more photosensitive to the sun. 90% of aging comes from UVA/UVB rays so we need to help prevent this as much as possible. The Kinship sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen that is reef safe and designed for acne prone skin. This sunscreen has a little bit of a peach, glowy tint that rubs into the skin transparent but with a little bit of a glow. It highlights turmeric which soothes the skin (which you’ll need if you’re exfoliating) as well as strengthens and protects damaged skin. It also has kinbiome which will help strengthen your skin barrier. I received the Georgette Klinger as a gift the beginning of the month and I’ve been using it ever since. The Murad and Kinship I received in the 5th edition of the Trendmood box and they became immediate favorites. I’ve had a few Glamglow travel samples for quite a few years now.

Thank you to these quarantimes for giving me the opportunity to focus more on my skincare and really learn what my skin needs. Coronavirus really brought acne and other blemishes on my skin so I decided that quarantimes was the best time to experiment and figure out what works for my skin! I started using THE inkey LIST - Alpha Arbutin and THE inkey LIST - Tranexamic Acid Hyperpigmentation Treatment on my skin to help with a few acne scars and dark spots. I added on the OLE HENRIKSEN - Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner after a week to really hone in on those areas. I decided to try the FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serumafter reading several recommendations from people. I now switch between that and the BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serumand found that both have really helped my skin clear up. These products along with my PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer and innisfree - Tangerine Brightening & Pore-Refining Sleeping Mask(used once a week) are the winning combo for my skin. I’m also sensitive to scents and have found that none of these products have scents that irritate me or my skin. Another win! Ya girl’s skin is happy and calm and glowing thanks to these heroines!

My skincare routine for glowing skin ✨

Skin type: combinations, acne-prone. Skin concern: dull skin. Following a beauty routine has its benefits, keeping the skin clean and hydrated makes the skin always look healthy. To minimize the appearance of pores, prevent wrinkles and decrease fine lines I use VIVIER - Retinol 1% Night Complex its main ingredients are 1% pure retinol, vitamin C, vitamin E and shea butter. It’s well known that retinol promotes cell renewal and increases collagen production, making the skin appear firmer and healthier. To keep dark spots out, I use VIVIER - Serum 10 , it contains 100% pure L-ascorbic acid, one of the best formulations on the market due to its stability. Helps reduce signs of environmental damage (fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture and tone). It’s an excellent ingredient to add to your beauty routine. I try to exfoliate my face 1-2 times a week with ACURE - Brightening Facial Scrub its main ingredients are sea kelp and french green clay, after using it my my face feels clean and fresh OR HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub a gentle exfoliating scrub, its main ingredients are papaya and pineapple enzymes, BHAs and AHAs. It’s really a gentle exfoliant, it doesn't irritate and leaves my skin clean, smooth and full of glow. Added an ideal toner to brighten dull skin tone like GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Toner , helps control excess oil, purifies deep inside pores, calms redness and fades dark spots. Its main ingredients are kakadu plum (source of vitamin C), aloe, witch hazel, watercress and elderflower. I have been using this toner for 20 days and I love the results, eliminate redness and reduce dark spots, my skin looks cleaner, brighter and healthier. In the morning, I applied GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream , a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates and calms the skin. It’s ideal for combination skin, leaves my skin feeling hydrated and glowy without leaving it greasy and smells delicious. Masks are an excellent treatment to help with your skincare concerns. I have millions of masks, I use one that I feel is best for me at the moment. ▪️If my skin needs hydration - SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask ▪️If I need something stronger - The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ▪️If my skin feels dry or dull - SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask ▪️If I need to control excess oil -NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser Sunscreen is the most important part of any beauty routine, since it prevents damage caused by UVB / UVA rays. One of my favorites is Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 , it leaves a subtle glow that makes you not look tired, in addition to leaving the skin very soft and hydrated. Gentle reminder: don't forget to drink water, staying hydrated is very important for healthy looking skin, sleeping well is also important as it helps the normal renewal and exfoliation of the skin.
