NIACINAMIDE explained! $6 serums worth trying!
Try these $6 serums to reap the many benefits of niacinamide! Hey everyone! I’m sure you’ve heard and seen so much about 𝙉𝙄𝘼𝘾𝙄𝙉𝘼𝙈𝙄𝘿𝙀 lately. It seems like every new skincare product has it and the niacinamide serums are selling like crazy. 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝐧𝐢𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐞? Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3. It’s the latest trend in skincare, but has been used in skincare for a very long time. It has many benefits from helping acne, repairing skin, smoothing fine lines.. the list goes on. You can find it as it’s own serum or as a main ingredient along with other powerhouse ingredients. 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬 ￼￼￼locks in moisture; helps build a lipid barrier. ￼￼￼prevents environmental damage + protects from environmental stressors and pollution. ￼￼￼minimizes pores ￼￼￼reduces inflammation; helps redness w/ acne and eczema. ￼￼￼regulates oil production. ￼￼￼rebuilds skin cells ￼￼￼protects against sun damage & skin cancer. ( you still need SPF) ￼￼￼helps hyperpigmentation (not to a vitamin c extent, but can help lighten spots a bit) ￼￼￼minimizes fine lines and wrinkles *yes plz* ￼￼￼helps acne! Overtime a decrease in breakouts. 𝙂𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙣 2 𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙝𝙨 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙪𝙢 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙩 𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙨. 𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙞𝙩 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙝𝙚𝙡𝙥𝙚𝙙 𝙢𝙮 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙣: I have incorporated Niacinamide into my skincare routine for the last 3 months and I have noticed + a decrease in breakouts. + less oily skin + huge change in my pores, way less visible around my nose and cheeks. + less eczema than usual for this time of the year for me. 𝘾𝙖𝙣 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙞𝙩? For the most part, yes... Some people do have a sensitivity to niacinamide and can break out from it. If you start to break out different than your normal while using it, I suggest taking it out of your routine to see if it is not a match for your skin. 𝘼𝙛𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙉𝙞𝙖𝙘𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙙𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙪𝙢𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙧𝙮: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Since I’ve switched to this “holy grail” my skin has drastically improved. It also includes Zinc which helps with acne as well. $5.90 a price that is TOO good. Sold at Ulta and Sephora. GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum Another great serum! I’ve used this one before and it works almost just as well as the ordinary. It is also %10 niacinamide. The brand also has an amazing niacinamide toner! $6 online at good molecules. Both of these serums are 10% niacinamide. Studies have shown that 2-5% works very effectively so you don’t need such a high percentage. #cheriepartner #cheriecreator

This popular peel helped my texture and clogged pores for just $7! As of lately my biggest skin concern has been little bumps and texture all over my face. I’ve never had it this bad before, but my skin is prone to clogged pores. Believe it or not, clogged pores can happen due to genetics and skincare products.

GRWM: Rare Beauty full face! Worth the hype?
10 minute makeup with Rare Beauty! YES WORTH IT! Rare Beauty launched last month and the crazy obsessed makeup junkie in me bought EVERYTHING and it’s been completely worth it! Overall the entire line is easy to use and can meet the needs of many who wear makeup! Products in order of video appearance: Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer The primer doesn’t do much, but add hydration, glow perfect for all skin tones, and soothes skins. You can do without this, but I am enjoying the extra glow! Rare Beauty - Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight I’m medium/tan olive and the shade Flaunt is the perfect highlighter shade. I prefer to apply this under my foundation for a light from within glow. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation Buildable coverage with NATURAL FINISH. Not for those who want a full beat, this is on the more natural side and I personally love it. I wear shade 360W (warm olive) the entire range runs on the warmer side. I absolutely love how quick and easy this is to apply. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Foundation Brush Honestly one of my new favorite foundation brushes! Doesn’t leave streaks, you can stipple, pack, or buff with this brush. Super light weight and the shape is great for everywhere on the face. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer I personally love this concealer. You can match your shade to your foundation. This may not be the best coverage for someone who wants a full coverage. Minimal almost no creasing! Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Concealer Brush AGAIN I love the brushes! This brush was modeled after our fingers and it feels pretty close to the soft touch of a finger blending in your concealer. Fits perfect under the eyes. Rare Beauty - Soft Pinch Liquid Blush A little goes a LONG way. Do not apply over powder!! This has to be applied a certain way for it to work. I prefer with a brush right on top of unset foundation. This has enough pigment to show still after setting powder. I have the shade LOVE - a warm terracotta. Rare Beauty - Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner Docked a star because I am truly not a big fan of brush tip liners, but this liner did an EXCELLENT job. Easy to use and very precise. Rare Beauty - Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick My favorite product and now my most worn red! A creamy airy texture that is very buildable for a soft or powerful look. Wearing the shade INSPIRE. Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist 4-in-1 Mist I’m not big on setting sprays anymore and I could probably do without this, but this is refreshing and revived my makeup if it looks too powdery. Rare Beauty - Blot & Glow Touch-Up Kit This is always in my purse, actually great for touch ups! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator

I worked in a Derm office for 6 yrs! Tips+advice
I worked for a Dermatologist for 6 years! This is what I learned… Somehow fresh out of high school I found myself working for a Dermatologist and I sure did learn quite a lot. SPF + SKINCARE Wear sunscreen and avoid unnecessary sun exposure! Zinc sunscreen is great, but you always need to reapply. What you do to your skin in your younger years end up showing later on in life. Skin is our biggest organ and skin cancer is very over looked. Dermatology is not just for acne and cosmetic procedures. Get your full body skin exams in to check for any “bad” moles or spots. ACNE Everyone’s acne is different. + simple and gentle routine; don’t over do it. + change your pillow cases. + don’t pick! - NO clarisonic brushes on active breakouts, it will spread bacteria around. + BE PATIENT - give your skin time before you see products or prescriptions start to really work. 3 MONTHS MIN. •seek out professional help from an aesthetician, primary care doctor, or dermatologists. + acne isn’t always just on the surface. Sometimes it can be starting from the inside with a hormone imbalance or due to gut health or genetics. + it can get worse before it gets better. PRODUCTS + keep it simple, but have a routine. + gentle cleanser, toner, vitamin c, and SPF. + cetaphil and cerave were always recommended. The best thing to remember is that you are only human and skin conditions are normal, acne is normal. If it is beyond what you can do to solve a skin condition, please see a professional! #cheriecreator #cheriepartner

Matrixyl results UPDATE‼️
I was just talking to a friend about those deep pesky forehead wrinkles that we all hate so much and it made me realize I needed to do an update on my results from my Matrixyl use!! The first picture was taken August 26th & the second was taken today! You can seriously see how far I’ve come in a really short time!! To be honest I am SHOCKED by the results. Here is what I have been doing. The Ordinary - Matrixyl* 10% + HA I use this am and pm directly after my hyaluronic acid serum or spray. I also recently started incorporating The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane as well 2X a week. I’m starting slow and working my way up but these results are definitely from the use of the Matrixyl and the hyaluronic acid. I’m super excited and can’t wait to see how they look in a couple more months!!!

Kiehl’s - Extreme hair growth
If you clicked on this post, you are probably suffering from thinning hair or you know someone who have thinning hair or you might be kind of freaking out that you might be losing your hair. No worries, let me share my hair growth story and products that helps me with my concerns. I have a bit thin hair around my hairline that shows through whenever my hair gets longer when I put it back in a bun or pony tail, people can actually kind of see my scalp which is always depressing. Especially when I see myself in a picture, that area specifically catches all my attention. Kiehl's - Amino Acid Shampoo According to dermatologist, this shampoo actually works very well for hair growth especially for people who has alopecia (which is genetical). I do have a friend who have used this system and her hair grew back. I used to have thick hair when I was in high school. I suffered terrible hair loss in my last year of college and it suddenly became an issue for me. I tried this system because of my friend and it works well for me. The effect was not immediate but I do see a lot of regrowth on my hairlines. Kiehl's - Amino Acid Conditioner I didn’t noticed much in the first month of trying it, but I got this one on discount in a Duo, so I decided to use it up before buying new ones. It was about 6 months, I started to get compliment on my hair after continuously using this product. I came to notice that my hair does look completely different than last year. It was shiny, full, and glory. I also feel that my scalp is healthier. I believe this products is one of the lines that does what it says. I agree it is a little bit expensive, but that’s because they put in all of the right ingredients to help you have thicker and more luscious hair.

HAIR GROWTH MIRACLE! NEW castor oil product👍
I've heard a lot of good things about castor oil. Castor oil has many benefits to skin and hair. I am suffering from hair thinning and loss. I've tried some shampoos like Mane 'n Tail and Kérastase. But I didn't see any progress. 😟 My sis suggested me try castor oil or argan oil. She works in Sephora and she recommended me this new castor oil product in Sephora. 👉FABLE & MANE Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil (I left it in my sister's apartment so I cannot take a photo for it. You can find it in Sephora.) I apply it as hair mask to the scalp and leave for 2 hours. After two hours, I wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner. I use it every 2 days before washing my hair. Here's the photo after using it for a month. See the newborn babies! What a miracle! I also noticed that it was hydrating and good for my split ends. It is a little bit expensive ($34.00 for 55 mL) but really effective. I'll definitely recommend it. There might be more affordable and effective hair growth products out there and this was what just worked for me. If you try some other castor or argan oil products, please share with me your experiences!

Products For Hair Growth That Actually Work
Hair loss is more common than you think and can happen to anyone. But the good news is there are viable solutions, starting with topical growth treatments. Hum Nutrition Hair Sweet Hair Gummies I love and swear by countless products from Hum Nutrition, but these hair-boosting gummies are by far my fave, my hair has never looked so thick or grown so fast. Maxsoft Hair Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush Almost every dermatologist I've ever chatted with about hair health has told me that scalp massage is one of the best things you can do to stimulate hair follicles for increased growth. This adorable, ultra-soft massaging shampoo brush is just the antidote you need. SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo Many experts recommend castor oil to aid lash and eyebrow growth. This shampoo cleanses the scalp without drying it out like harsh chemicals can do. You’ll get a powerful shampoo without compromising moisture. The Roots Naturelle Virgin Hair Fertilizer Conditioning Treatment Ideal for African American hair types, this deep conditioner is meant to heal hair that's been damaged due to braiding, heat, and chemicals. Essy Hair Growth Oil With all-natural and pure ingredients, this is one of the most beloved growth-promoting hair products on Amazon's market. The formula includes castor oil, caffeine, rosemary oil, and biotin to infuse both scalp and strands with essential omega-6 fatty acids, minerals, proteins, and vitamin E. All these products work wonders could be purchased from Amazon.
How I regrew my hair back with the tips I learned over the past four years...
I've started losing my hair since high school, which has been quite painful for me for years. I've tried nearly all the methods I could find on the Internet, magazines and so on but the truth is that most of them don't actually work for me. After trying so many hair growth "tips", I finally got my hair back! I'll list the tips that are actually helpful to me, so you don't need to waste your time on the useless ones: 🌟Massage scalp with hair serums or hair oils Many of those who have bought hair growth serums or hair oils like to complain that these hair growth products or hair thickening treatments don't work at all, and I used to be one of them until I found that It's the way I apply these products hat makes them less effective! Don't just simply drop your hair treatments and then rub them your two seconds. You need to use a scalp massager or brush such as BOUCLÈME - Scalp Massager to gently let your scalp absorb them, which helps hair follicles remain active. I normally massage my scalp for at least 5 minutes before I go to bed. My favorite hair growth serum is GROW GORGEOUS - Hair Density Serum Intense in case you are interested. 🌟Take vitamin supplements Vitamins are the key for hair regrowth: Vitamin A promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp; vitamin E helps blood circulation to maintain the productivity of hair follicles. My doctor advised me to take some vitamin supplements daily. At first, I thought it was nothing but a waste of money, but I noticed a difference that some newly grown babies were growing on my hairline after taking DL.MD - Liquid Multi-Vitamin Supplement for one month! 🌟Stick with mild hair care products Keeping hair and scalp clean is necessary, but steer away from the strongly detoxing ones as these strongly purifying shampoos overly exfoliate your scalp and will harm your hair follicles. By using gentle shampoos and conditioners like Anne Semonin - Memoires D'ete Gentle Shampoo and Neutrogena - Healthy Scalp Gentle & Soft Conditioner with Micellar Water, you are lowering the risk of infections and sensitive scalp that may lead to hair breakage or loss. 🌟Carefully using the wig clips I used my lace front wig sometimes to cover my bald spots on my scalp during the period that I suffered from the severe hair fall. The lace front wig usually has clips added for steady holding. If you are using a wig, don't constantly put the clips of your wig in one area of your head, as the clip can tug at your real hair. Also, don't pull at the wig or yank get it as these actions harm your scalp and aggravate hair loss. But don't get me wrong! I'm not saying that you need to avoid wigs, but you'd better be careful with them! Very quickly, I used to feel depressed and shamed for my hair loss, especially when I was a teenager, and I guess there must be someone who is still going through something similar. Having wresting with the hair fall for about four years, I gradually learned how to accept my hair fall and reacquired my confidence. It's not something self-inflicted, and some so many women are having the same problems! Take your time, keep your head up, and follow those really helpful hair tips, you won't be troubled by the hair fall for sure! Love you guys lots xx!

Does Prose’s Customizable Haircare Work? It Did for Me!
Who doesn’t like to see their name printed on a bottle; to know a product is made especially for you? You’ve likely heard about the popular customized haircare line that is swarming Instagram these days. Prose is custom-blended to your own personal haircare needs, and they actually take it a step further than you might imagine. Ideal Hair type for Prose: Any! Because it is customized to your needs. If you see the before and after pictures, my verdict would be that prose 100% worked for me. It is a bit expensive but I invested because I could see that my hair was thinning around an old scar where I fell. It was leaving me nearly bald on one side at age 25, and I knew action needed to be taken (even if that meant investing a bit more than I normally would to protect my curly tresses at their root). After only two months of use, my hair feels lighter, bouncier, and healthier. What I love about this line is that they will tailor their formula to your specific: · Hair type (course, curly, thin, straight, etc.) · Hair damage (daily heat styling or dyeing it over years) · Long-term Goals (healthier, better color protection, growth, etc.) · Geographic Location (even covering environmental obstacles that your hair is up against) Based on my zip code in Texas, you can see the beautifully written consultation plans that describe the: · Texas sun beating down on my poor locks · Low pollution · High humidity · 60% on the quality scale for water This means that they’re accounting for things in my water system such as too much calcium or chlorine build-up which can impact your hairs health. All in all, I think this haircare line is incredibly unique and offering more than the standard drugstore line. They have done their research to provide high-quality ingredients that you can trust. For example, in my personalized shampoo there is: · Sunflower Seed Oil · Professional Silicone (you can select to have zero silicone, I wanted it for my curl-care) · Fermented Rice Water (soothing for the scalp) · Vitamin F Forte (Revitalizer) · And much more! I can certainly see a difference in my hair and scalp health. I would recommend this product to anyone I know and love!
