cystic acne progress
cystic acne is a journey like no other. It’s unpredictable and frustrating. But, you have to celebrate small wins whenever possible. almost 2 weeks ago, I woke up with my cheek severely inflammed having sprouted a ton of cysts seemingly overnight. big, red, painful ones. unfortunately, my cystic acne is very much hormone, stress, and diet driven which makes it hard to manage at times. today, I can finally appreciate that I was successful in bringing the inflammation down. eight days may seem like a long time but in the world of cystic acne, that’s huge progress! It looks and feels so much more comfortable. if you use tretinoin, stick with it! I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel and while no day is perfect when you’re prone to cystic acne, it does get better. feel free to ask me all your cystic acne questions!
Why is my chin covered in acne
I have struggled with acne on my chin for over a year now. Nothing I do has seemed to work. I switched to CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin and CeraVe - CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion . I also use a vitamin c serum every other day and then Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil for my scars. That’s all I use but nothing is seeming to help. My skin is super sensitive and gets irritated at anything that has benzoyl peroxide. If anyone has any tips that would be great !

TOO FACED | You’re So Jelly Highlighter
Too Faced - Tutti Frutti You're So Jelly An oldie but a goodie! ✨ This is Too Faced’s You’re So Jelly Highlighter! It is a bouncy liquid highlighter in a beautiful champagne shade. The highlighter goes on to the skin wet and dries down to stay in place. I’ve used this for over a year now! There is so much product in this one container. At first, I thought the shimmer would be too intense, but I have to say that I love it! Sometimes I wear this alone and sometimes I use a powder highlighter on top. It looks beautiful either way! I enjoy that you can make this look more natural or you can really layer it for an intense glow. The texture was a bit weird to me at first because it’s neither a liquid or a cream but I got used to it and I’ve never had an issue with how it applied over makeup. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a different type of highlighter they can wear either on bare skin or over makeup. This is definitely for people who love champagne shades! The only thing I will say is that the fruity scent might be too strong for some people. Personally, I didn’t mind it though! I will continue to use this amazing product! ✨

An A-Okay Sheet Mask
maeily - Grapefruit Essence Sheet Mask Morning are when I really need my skin to awaken and brighten up just a tad more. If this is also you, I’d totally recommend that you try out Maeily’s Grapefruit Essence Mask. The prime ingredients are lemon and grapefruit extracts which are widely known to create a more even complexion. The experience itself was pretty standard as that of a regular cloth sheet mask - no complaints there. The scent is of light citrus, which is another reason I love using this mask in the morning. The end results are great as it does actually enliven the skintone, my complexion looks super sunny afterwards. The effects last the whole day, so it’s definitely worth its price: just $1.50!

Brazilian Joia Shampoo & Conditioner🌞
After falling in love with the cult-favorite signature scent of the SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream I recently picked up the SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo + Conditioner Set with my last Cherie gift card from the Creator Program! I instantly fell in love after my first wash! My hair smells like Bum Bum cream, but better!! It left my hair feeling smooth & soft, it claims to be strengthening, which I could see these forsure being long-term effects! I love this stuff, I got the kit that came with the body spray so now my whole body smells like Sol De Janeiro all day long!✨🌞🌟
