Under eye circles & bags.. BE GONE!
Me: 44 years old, light-med skin tone, combo (oily nose/dehydrated) skin type, sun damage & my main concern ((drum roll please)) dark under eye circles & bags that look more like suitcases! 🐼 ° This is a 3 week follow up post on gaining control of these ageing racoon/panda eyes. (please see previous posts about my under eye journey) 😉 °I have been using 2 products in my am/pm skin care routine to control my under eye darkness and bags. I mix 2 drops of sweet almond oil with e.l.f. holy hydration cream and apply the mixture under my eye area every am and pm after I cleanse & tone my face. I can see and feel a huge difference in both lightening the darkness and lessening the puffyness! °VERY IMPORTANT: If you have dehydrated skin like I do... (meaning: you have dry skin because you need to drink more water) do yourself a favor and DRINK MORE WATER! I've been very mindful during this month long experiment of drinking more "water" because I have never been a water drinking type of gal. I usually fetch for the juices & flavored waters because water is just... well water! Yes, the taste is boring and doesn't seem to satisfy your palette BUT the difference you feel within and see externally is so worth it. Just from drinking water I noticed some seriously positive results: regular bowel flows (sorry T.M.I. but it's true), better digestion, less tummy bloating, clearer & vibrant skin, HYDRATED skin, lips aren't constantly chapped, my feet feel much softer, nail cuticles are less dry, hair is much softer and ends feel freshly cut ✂, face feels plumper & looks healthier. Being hydrated has a major role in skin appearance & overall health! after all (water = life) °Mix these 2 products in your am/pm routine for brighter under eyes & to lessen the extra baggage no-one wants to drag around! e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free now - Solutions, Sweet Almond Oil ° Follow me on my journey to healthier & younger looking skin & under eyes!

SIMPLE PM ROUTINE FOR LONG & FRIZZY HAIR
SWIPE LEFT TO SEE END RESULT🚨 SOOOOOO before I go to sleep, EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, I have to braid my hair. Over the years (four to be exact), I’ve just become accustomed to braiding it because it’s the easiest way to manage my hair texture. (I have flat hair, but it’s not bone straight if ya know what i mean.) So along with the refusal of damaging my hair with heat, I settled for braiding. It’s been forever since i used a straightener.... I love being simplistic. Hehe . So heres a 3-step routine for nightly hair care to keep hair untangled and frizz-free. I also chose NOW Sweet Almond Oil ( promotes softer texture/lightweight) because I just love natural/simple products. I love using holistic remedies as my #1. I did add in some Rose Geranium. Although essential oils aren’t considered holistic, they are still natural and extremely beneficial (promotes hair growth& natural perfume) Step 1: After washing hair , let hair air dry and comb it out with a wide tooth comb (don’t completely dry , leave damp) Step 2: After detangling , apply a generous amount of oil starting from the tips of hair, making your way up. Being mindful not to add to much oil Step 3: Detangle one more time, now braid WHAT’S YOUR HAIR ROUTINE/WHAT OIL DO YOU USE?

50 Shades of Acne
I love it when people say "oh, every teen has hormones and gets acne. Don't worry, puberty will sort you out!" Puberty did not sort me out. I've dealt with acne my whole life until recently. I've been hit with cystic acne, fungal acne, pimples, whiteheads- you name it I've had it. I've narrowed down the problems so you don't have to: -crappy genetics (but hey if there's hope for me there's hope for everyone) -using waaaaay too many products -using harsh products -thinking ingredients only mattered in food -constantly touching my face -looking for quick fixes to problems instead of treating them -dehydrating my skin and stripping it (it used to be hella oily and this is why.) -stress (blame cortisol) -selling myself short (skin is fascinating- it can heal very quickly if you let it) -doing stupid "skincare diys" (btw never do skincare diys) In summary, two years ago I was using at least 4 face washes a day, exfoliating the shi- out of my face, using a bajillion acne treatments, constantly rubbing oil off my face with my oily hands, trying to fix problems that I shouldn't have worried about, and not fixing problems I should've. If I could offer just one piece of advice, it would be to research and really understand your skin and products before doing ANYTHING. For instance, when salicylic acid was super popular I bought loads of it, which in fact dried out my skin and didn't help with the TYPE of problems I was dealing with. My skin routine now is very simple, and very effective (if you wanna see it let me know)- huge change from 2 years ago. So whether you're a teen or an adult (or...a child? idk), one, skin problems are normal, so don't fall into the vicious and money draining cycle of loading up on skincare products every week and two, if you utilize your resources effectively, things will get better! ~Claire 💕

Feed your hair and scalp
Gone are the days of Luster’s Pink Lotion. I will rejoice and be glad in it. I have natural, 4C hair and there was a time when I could only get hair products from the beauty supply store. That has thankfully changed — even if most department stores like to categorize the products I need as “ethnic hair products.” (But that’s is a discussion for another day.) I also have a dry scalp if I don’t oil it. Most of the products I purchased from Sephora, T.J. Maxx, Sephora, BirchBox and my local department stores. And since I have 4C hair, my hair tends to be on the dry side. This is because the oil from my scalp has more of a hurdle to get over because of the coils unlike the easily shot straight hair provides. I find it best to treat the scalp and hair like two different entities. I use the scalp massager (not the Sephora brand one. I am pretty sure I got it from Amazon) to work in my PAUL MITCHELL - Tea Tree Special Shampoo and PAUL MITCHELL - Tea Tree Special Conditioner while in the shower. The tingling is amazing, but DON’T GET IT IN YOUR EYES. From there, the hair masks obviously focus on the the moisture and repairing of my hair while the oils I use to help my scalp, then seal in the moisture the masks infused in my hair. I try to switch up my masks often and mix them when I am feeling adventurous. Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask : I received the tube one in a BirchBox. It is packed with nutrients and is supposed to help damaged hair. Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo : My Sephora birthday selection. It is for all hair types and is supposed to breakdown buildup. amika: - Triple Rx Mask : A $14.99 TJM purchase that I just couldn’t turn down. It is supposed to repair, restore and revitalize dry or damaged hair. OUAI - OUAI Leave-In Conditioner: Also a BirchBox product. I haven’t used it yet. now - Solutions, Certified Organic, Jojoba Oil is rich with fatty acids and helps promote softer hair and skin. now - Solutions, Sweet Almond Oil is high in vitamin E and locks moisture into hair strands. Reduces dandruff and promotes a healthy scalp #365 - Avocado oil[products]#[FourStars] stimulates blood flow and unclog blocked follicles. Sunny Isle - The Original Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil and all of the other SI JBCO are GOATs. I love this brand and JBCOs. (Not pictured) What are your hairly grail products? #CheriePartner

Perfect Barrier Repair PM Routine
If you have damage barrier and are finding that even the most gentle products are making your skin burn THIS is the PM routine for you! Step 1: Wash your face with the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser. It is very gentle and conditioning. This is not a face wash for people with normal skin, this is for dry sensitive types who do not need any additional stripping of the skin. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser Step 2: After your face is dry, prep your skin for moisture with the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner. It is called a toner, but really just acts like an essence and pre-hydrates your face time receive the creams. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Toner Step 3: Go in with treatment with La Roche Posay’s Cicaplast Baum B5 to really repair the barrier and get the vitamins your skin needs. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations Step 4: La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar Moisturizing Lotion to moisturize your skin and further repair your barrier with their prebiotic water. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Lipikar Moisturizing Lotion Step 5: Time for the cream, this is a heavier moisturizer than the Lipikar but really locks in all the treatments. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin Step 6: Give your skin a little to rest but if you’re as dry as I am when your skin freaks out use some raw Shea butter as your last step. It’s completely non-comedogenic (will not cause breakouts/clog pores) and mimics your body’s natural sebum. To me this is the MOST useful step in my repair routine. It really helps my skin heal and reset! now - Solutions, Shea Butter, Certified Organic I know this is a pretty long routine and full of moisture, but it really helps to repair my skin after a flare or product destroys my skin’s barrier. My skin feels so much better today and I was able to use my normal routine with just a little extra moisturizer! Hope this helps those with this problem!

Dry Skin Savior for $10
If you’ve ever gotten to the point that no matter what creams and oils you slather on your face and/or body, you still have dry painful skin this is for you. Shea butter is completely non-comedogenic (0 on the comedogenic scale) because it closely mirrors the sebum our bodies naturally produce. When I’m super dry I just slap some of this baby on as my last step in my skincare treatment and ACTUALLY wake up with skin that isn’t dry. It’s amazing and cheap! The massive tub I have in this picture was just $10 USD and some change. Works amazing on the body, too!!! now - Solutions, Shea Butter, Certified Organic

Oils For Acne !?
Many may run at the idea of using an oil on acne prone skin BUT what if I told you that using oils for acne can be very helpful for your acne. Are you curious? Or are you already running for the door 😂? Let’s talk about it . . . Why Would You Use Oil On Acne 🥴 First it depends on what types of oil(s) you are using and we will get into that as we go. Many oils have great antibacterial , soothing and healing prosperities which is great for acne. These beneficial oils will help reduce breakouts and heal them leading to less scarring. So What Types Of Oils Do You Use 🤷🏼‍♀️ There are about 7 oils I know from my experience that have helped me with my acne. These oils are natural and unrefined ( including essential oils) I do suggest staying away from mineral oils and petroleum jelly. Those do nothing but sit on top of the skin,can clog pores and have no nutritional value for the skin. Using natural oils penetrate the the skin and have more beneficial properties.Here are some oils I recommend & Why they are beneficial for acne 🌺Almond Oil Helps dissolve excessive oil, Improves cell turnover,hypoallergenic 🌸Coconut Oil Antibacterial, Reduces scarring 🌹Tea Tree Oil Anti inflammatory, Antimicrobial, reduces swelling and redness 🌼Lavender Oil Antibacterial,healing,unclogs pores,anti inflammatory 🌻Vitamin E Oil ( my personal fav ! Place this on a breakout and see how fast it heals !) Anti inflammatory,antioxidant,healing 💐Jojoba Oil Healing,Antimicrobial,Anti Inflammatory 🌷Castor Oil ( another one of my faves! But it’s thick thick so don’t use too much) Antibacterial,Antimicrobial, helps with skin texture What do all of these oils have in common ? Comment below ☺️ It’s important to use antibacterial ingredients when dealing with acne to get rid of bacteria from skin which causes breakouts. Paired with that you want to also use healing ingredients to reduce scarring from breakouts.There are many oils I recommend doing your research How Do I Use Oils In My Regimen 🧏🏼‍♀️ It can be as simple or as fancy as you want, a simple method will be taking a little bit of oil onto fingers and massaging it directly into skin. The fancy way is mixing oils like a few drops of tea tree oil into some coconut oil and applying to skin. Everyones experience with using oils is different some or none may work for you. Oils should be applied at night over moisturizer and cleansed off in the morning. This will allow your skin to absorb the benefits of the oil. I do this and notice a major improvement in my breakout in the morning. I do not suggest wearing oil during the day because you are more active , and if you wear makeup this can cause you to produce more oil. And trust me oil on top of oil + More breakouts is not a look ! Depending on your skin you can use oils nightly 1 to 3 times out the week. It’s important to pay attention to how your skin is reacting. #cheriecreator Any questions ? Ask In commments ❤️

My Current Skincare Routine!
Howdy everybody! I’m Carl, and this is my current skincare routine. Some of these products I’ve bought myself, others are gifts (like the SkinActive Soothing Kit by Garnier). Some products are kinda old, like the Neutrogena - Alcohol Free Toner . Only so much of it is left, and though I liked it and it worked well I’m going to be using the HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Tonersoon! My newest product is the ACURE - Brightening Super Greens Serum which I adore right now! I’m hoping to use the GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE - Cucumber Hydrogel Face Masksome time soon. All in all these products have been very helpful and I recommend them (especially the GARNIER - SkinActive Soothing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Rose Water ) to any of you who have dry skin and need that extra moisture every day! Hopefully by the end of quarantine (whenever that is) my skin will be amazing! 🥰

3C/4A texture wash day (sensitive skin 👌🏽)
Because I’m prone to eczema on my neck, I have to be really careful with my haircare. I used to consistently use Shea Moisture, but unfortunately their products are too heavy on the fragrance for me, so I tried different “clean” lines that were either greenwashing and/or just didn’t support my kind of hair texture 👩🏽‍🦱 Now I’m finally satisfied with my hair wash and conditioning process thanks to these products! Pure Anada’s line is almost doing it for my type of hair, I feel like the conditioner could just be a little richer and then it’d be a 5 ⭐️ for my coils. I did use some of my old Shea Moisture conditioner to detangle some super tangled strands. I like the use of rosemary in the Pure Anada s+c though, due to its hair growth properties, which I can use for a bald patch that I discovered on my nape last year. After washing, I deep conditioned with the coconut milk mask & oils (castor (4/5 bc of dense scent) on scalp to promote hair growth & the apricot and intimacy oil (not for sex! 🤪 contains hemp) all over for that nice sheen.) Check out that curl pattern before and especially after a twist out! Whew we’ve honestly come a long way, I’ll have to show you guys my hair transformation journey at some point🤳🏽 Pure Anada - Shampoo - Peppermint Rosemary Pure Anada - Conditioner - Peppermint Rosemary GRAYDON - Intimacy Oil om - Coconut Milk Hair Mask SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Conditioner Sunny Isle - The Original Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil now - Solutions, Apricot Oil

Jojoba oil for the win
Jojoba oil for the win
I used to think that putting an oil on my face would never help me at all. I thought my skin was REALLY oily, but it was just extremely dehydrated from all of the stripping and drying products that I used. A facial oil does my sensitive combination skin well as long as I exfoliate regularly. This facial oil gives me what I want even I don’t. I’ve been using this oil on my face for a few years now and it balances my skin out very nicely not only during the winter time but year round. I don’t need to use a lot of it to get what I need from it. Pros: * doesn’t feel greasy *mimics the oil naturally produced on my face to prevent excess oil production * sinks in nicely *gives a soft highlight on my nose and cheeks I really don’t have any cons for this. It lasts me for a while as I alternate through trying new oils and the price point is good for me. I’m on my third bottle and I’ll be buying another one when it runs out :)
