Although we all strive to maintain the youngish look as much as possible, there is nothing bad in aging and that is a completely natural process. However, taking care of your skin and face is something that is a must and it consists of a certain routine. Depending on the skin type, there are different approaches, products, and treatments that you need to follow if you want to cover at least the basic skincare ground. From all the skin types, the sensitive type is the one that strikes out as the one needing most care, nurture, special products, and treatments because it is prone and easily damaged due to different influences. So, no matter if there is hormonal misbalance, dietary restrictions of some outside influence, the sensitive skin will manifest its results. That is why it must be taken care of regularly so that you can maintain a glowing look and complexion. Before we switch to the tips on some of the most important beauty tips for sensitive skin, here is a little reminder on how to determine whether you have a sensitive skin type. Sensitive skinThe sensitive skin type is the most delicate because it requires more attention and a different approach than the other skin types. It is very gentle and can manifest with signs of redness, itching, dryness, and burning. It is easily influenced by different weather conditions. The wind dries it very fast, while the sun can cause light burns, redness and skin irritation. Having sensitive skin can be genetically inherited or its sensitivity can be triggered by some factor or body hormones. Its treatment and maintaining the good looks are done by special sensitive skincare lines that are mainly consisted of mild and nurturing ingredients that feel light and easy on the sensitive skin. So, if you have found yourself in this skin type, here are 5 do-s that can be considered as beauty tips that you need to practice and incorporate in your daily routine if you want your skin to look healthy, radiant and glowing. 1. Moisturize and hydrateThe skin is composed of over 60% of water. Due to different outside influences, it can lose water. That is why the outside and inside hydration and keeping it well-moisturized will help the skin maintain its protective role. The healthy look of the skin comes from the well-balanced water cells. The sensitive skin is prone to dryness and that is why you need to keep it moisturized all of the time. This can be done using products that are rich in moisturizing ingredients. Some even have a 72-hour effect and lock the moisture inside. This makes the skin look plumped, healthy and glowing. Alongside the topical application of moisturizing products, it is very important to hydrate your body. Drinking lots of water will make the skin look good, the complexion will be healthier and the dry skin will become more elasticized. Water stimulates the rejuvenation of skin cells, which over some time, will result in lesser wrinkles and fine lines.2. Regulate your dietLike many other conditions, skin sensitivity can be triggered by the food that we insert. Although fast food, sodas, and sweets are something that no one can stay away from, it is best to focus on something else which will benefit your sensitive skin. Fresh juices and lots of water is what keeps the skin hydrated from the inside. 3. Sun protection is crucialProtection from the sun is crucial and important for keeping your skin healthy. The skin sensitivity is easily triggered by the harsh sun rays, which can result in redness, itchiness, and irritation. That is why the protection from the sun consists of several things. Wearing a hat with a wide brim will throw a nice shade over the face, keeping it safe from direct sun rays and it is a fashionable thing too. Wearing shades will also protect the area around the eyes and the cheeks. And wearing sunscreen with a high protection factor is something that must be considered at all times, not just in the summer.4. Choose suitable cosmeticsJust like the skincare line, choosing suitable makeup can play a great role in the good look of your skin. The beauty and makeup market today offers lots of different products that are specially designed for sensitive skin. They are rich in moisturizing ingredients, vitamins and are free of fragrance and other things that might irritate the skin additionally. Although some might consider that makeup covers all, the redness and the irritation might be only worsened by the use of inappropriate and unsuitable makeup. That is why you should always look for the sign "Fragrance-Free" and "No artificial colors" on the label of the makeup and cosmetics you are buying.5. Switch to BB creamsBB cream stands for beauty balm. These balms are lighter than the foundations. With that, they offer lighter and sheer coverage and they do not dry the skin too much. They are usually infused with rich doses of vitamins and cocktails, as well as hydration particles necessary for those with sensitive skin. BB creams are a much better choice and an option for sensitive skin instead of foundation. They contain fewer pigments, contrary to the foundations that are rich in them and tend to increase the dryness of the skin. That way the skin will look more natural and healthy instead of dry and cracked at the places. Basically, they cover, care and protect all in one. We at Cherie are dedicated into providing you with the most useful and necessary information regarding beauty, skincare, makeup and everything that one woman loves and follows. Following these tips and incorporating them into your regular skincare and beauty routine will keep the condition and the look of your sensitive skin on the highest possible level. The care for your face starts from the earliest ages so if you are not practicing anything of this, now is the perfect time to get more involved in your skincare regimen.

Hair Growth Journey - What I’ve learned!
Hair Growth Journey - What I’ve learned!
My hair growth journey and some tips! These photos were taken exactly 12 months apart. This is about 8 inches of growth which includes 2 salon trims/cuts and 1 self-done quarantine trim. And it feels really healthy. 2 years ago my hair was about shoulder length. Between the nape of my neck and top of shoulders is a bad length for me, it flips weird, it tangles - I hate it. It also seemed to be thinning in some places and I was shedding hair more than normal (I do have autoimmune stuff). I like to do ponytails and braids and I just couldn’t do anything with it. I wanted it to grow and it just wasn’t happening! I tried hair growth shampoo. I tried tons of conditioners. I tried leave-in treatments. I tried DIY recipes. People always ask so - Let me tell you what worked! 1. Obviously, take it easy with heat styling and coloring! If you must heat style your hair, use a good heat protectant EVERY time. I blow dry my hair maaaybe 3 times a year. When I want waves I do braids or twists. I have perfected the art of the heatless hairstyle!! And when I want to change up my color, I now use OVERTONE - Coloring Conditioner or KERACOLOR - Color + Clenditioner . Obviously this won’t work for all colors but it’s something to try. 2. Quit with the Dry Shampoo - or at least cut down! This was hard for me. I have oily hair & generally only shampoo 2 or 3 times a week. I was using dry shampoo for DAYS at a time sometimes. A very light first day dry shampoo is fine. But if you start sleeping with it in and you are using it 2 and 3 days in a row, it’s clogging up your scalp and can make your hair prone to breakage. Then you have to use more clarifying shampoos or shampoo twice for your hair to feel clean - and you just defeated the whole thing. 3. Scalp massages!!! Doooo it!!!! I learned how well this works after buying a “hair growth” shampoo and was shocked at how fast my hair grew. BUT the directions said to put the shampoo on and massage it into your scalp for TWO to THREE minutes. I did it religiously. And it worked so well. So I started doing it with other shampoos and then added an every other night hair oil massage to the mix. THIS really kicks your hair growth and hair health into high gear. Use the extra oil on your hands on the ends of your hair for extra conditioning. 4. Hair, skin & nails vitamins!! There are tons of brands. I’ve used these NATURE'S BOUNTY - Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies for about 2 years. I’ve tried a few others mixed in but these are inexpensive, I like the taste, they feel like a treat, and I think they have really contributed to my hair, skin, and nail health. It’s about personal preference I think. I’m not the best eater in the world sometimes and I’m wholly addicted to sugar! If you aren’t one of those Whole 30 diet people who eats like a saint - you should get some vitamins like these. Hope you find this helpful!!! 💙

ACNE, DULL, DRY or PREMATURE skin? Find out why!
🔶 Okay, so we’ve all heard or read about pH balanced products and products that rebuild the acid mantle...but I think a lot of us don’t know why it is SO important to keep the pH level of your skin BALANCED and your acid mantle UNCOMPROMISED! ❌ Generally, skin that isn't behaving can be traced to pH problems. Skin issues like eczema, redness, dry patches, acne, oiliness, psoriasis, and premature signs of aging all indicate that your skin's pH is off-balance! This is how IMPORTANT this topic truly is 😳 🔸 So, WHY is the pH balance important to skin? Any great deviation—either too high of a pH or too low—throws off the “ecosystem” of skin and causes inflammation and irritation when the natural oils and natural bacteria on the skin are disrupted. (Aka: your acid mantle has now been compromised due to this) ⭐️ If you are suffering from any of the above issues, perhaps you need to take a step back and really look into the routine you have in place currently, for morning and night. ⭐️The pH of your cleansers are very important because something that is high pH, 9 and above, can be too drying and stripping for your skin. And your cleanser is your first step of your skincare routine. So you don’t want to start it off by using a cleanser with a pH level lower or higher than ***4.5-5.5.*** When your acid mantle and skin barrier are compromised, it can lead to BAD bacteria, which causes ACNE and dehydration, which ultimately leads to WRINKLES!😱🛑 🔸Tiffany Masterson, the owner and creator of Drunk Elephant is an absolute master when it comes to knowing how to Properly care for your skin. “The acid mantle just so happens to protect skin from environmental factors that lead to aging and all-around irritation,” she says. So, she made sure that ALL of their products are pH balanced to perfection 🙌🏻 - if you’re having bad acne I REALLY suggest taking a “Clean Break” - and switching your routine to a short yet VERY effective routine using Drunk Elephant products. All of their products from head to toe are pH balanced so I promise you can’t go wrong with their products! ✅ But now that this topic has become so popular in the beauty world, there are TONS of other amazing brands that have created pH balanced products to help aid with these skin issues as well. But if you ask me, I think Tiffany started the trend 😉🐘💕✨ 🔸Here are some other REALLY GREAT pH Focused Products from other brands: ▪️Tula’s Pro-Glycolic 10 percent pH resurfacing gel ▪️La Roche-Posay made a device called “My Skin Track”: a prototype of a wearable sensor that detects trace amounts of sweat from your pores and promises an accurate skin pH reading in just 15 minutes. ▪️Brands like Cosrx and Acwell are K-Beauty brands thus they tend to make most of their products with a low pH level that is gentle on the skin and won’t cause any extra irritation. So if you’re having any of the above issues, check your products pH levels😊 - hope this helps some of you! 💋
