As the seasons change, work gets busy, and nervous lip biting occurs, your poor lips go through the wringer. Sometimes they need a little tender love and care to bring them back to top kissable, hydrated form. After all, we all have a skincare routine- why not a lip care routine? Today we will break down the do’s, don’t, and whys of skincare in our Cherie guide to a natural lip care routine. Before we begin, let’s break down the science.Why my lips are dry?If you find that your lips cracked and chapped by the end of the day, ask yourself why? Dehydration, exposure, and lip licking all contribute to dry lips. Try upping your water intake, using a humidifier if you’re exposed to lots of dry air, and avoid licking those lips! Licking your lips is really detrimental to healthy lips. When you lick, you introduce chemicals from your saliva that are used to break down food. Guess what else they break down? The delicate skin surrounding your mouth! Instead, invest in a decent lip oil or balm to help resist the urge. Cherie’s Introduction to Lip Care: 1. Remove Your Makeup! Removing your lipstick, gloss, or stain should be the highest priority when you begin your lip care routine. Use an alcohol-free makeup remover (we count down our favorites here) to get rid of gloss and makeup residue. We recommend Micellar Water for lip care. Simply apply to a cotton pad and wipe away. Try not to rub too hard!However, sometimes standard makeup removers just aren’t enough for long-lasting lip stains and colors. If you have found the holy grail of lipstick for lasting color, we are happy for you! But removing it can be a downright pain. Any scrubbing around your lips causes micro-tears in the delicate skin and can leave your lips feeling brutalized. Instead, try using Vaseline! For tougher lipsticks, we recommend Vaseline. Vaseline is a multi-purpose beauty tool that works fantastically for hydration AND makeup removal. Apply a coin-sized amount of Vaseline to your lips and let it rest for a few minutes. Use a damp cloth to wipe your lips gently clean and voila! You now have a pure, hydrated pout.

Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, Original2. Exfoliate! Exfoliation is the secret behind smooth, rosy lips! Exfoliating your lips gets rid of any dead, dry skin and makes way for the new, fresh skin underneath. This leaves your pout clean, smooth, and supple. Plus, exfoliating will reduce the appearance of fine lines around the lips and makes for a perfect base for lipsticks and stains. We Recommend Lush The Kiss Lip Scrub for lip exfoliation. This vegan lip scrub tastes great, is made with natural ingredients, and leaves your lips feeling soft, supple, and plump. This scrub is also available in a variety of flavors like bubble gum, honey, or coffee so you can treat your lips in a variety of colors! To use a lip scrub, rub the scrub gently over your lips with your forefinger. Then try rubbing your lips together, and remove the excess with a damp cloth and some water. Feel free to marvel at home smooth and lush your lips now feel. 3. Time to moisturize with a lip serum!A lip serum is a potent mix of antioxidants, active ingredients, and natural extracts that works overtime to smooth, firm, and plump your lips. We recommend Clinique All About Lips Treatment. Clinique promises to smooth out fine lines using olive oil extracts, leaving you with protected and hydrated lips.
CLINIQUEAll About LipsSerums are especially crucial for building a protective layer over your skin. Your lips are fragile skin (which is why they are red in color- as the blood runs so close to the surface) and, as such, have less surface area to create the lubricating oils that protect the rest of your body. Serums offer a helping hand and build a protective barrier for you! 4. Lie down with a lip mask! Instagram was taken over by collagen lip masks come awards show season. With Emma Stone and Kim Kardashian touting golden collagen boosting lip masks, we decided to give a few of our own a try! Lip masks work to deliver intense reparation, hydration, and rejuvenation and cater to all lip concerns. There are two ways to go about a lip mask. Both require some prone time, so grab yourself a pillow and get ready to relax. The first way is investing in an overnight mask. We recommend the Klavuu Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack for hydration and repair. This lip care formula acts overnight to replenish and revive the skin. It is weightless, balancing, and enriched with natural antioxidants drawn from avocado, sweet almond, and apricot seed oils. Plus, it arose from the Korean beauty craze and has long been a favorite of Korean beauty gurus. Use this mask three times a week for some serious pout improvement. Secondly, try a day time collagen-infused mask to plump out that pout. We recommend KNC Beauty All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask. This celebrity fave comes in a lip-shaped gel pack and delivers serious hydration in just 15 minutes. Plus, it’s a perfect excuse for a selfie. This pack comes with five collagen-infused masks and delivers massive results. For 5-6 hours afterward, you can feel the smooth and plump change in your lips. The collagen does tingle a little, but it’s a gentle sensation and a necessary part of the process!
KNC BEAUTYAll Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask5. Touch up with a lip oil or a lip balm! Lip balms have been a handbag staple for decades, but what about lip oils? Lip oils are fabulous for more extreme conditions, or especially suffering lips. If you live in an area prone to cold, dry air, spend a lot of time in air conditioning, or enjoy the sun and sea- a lip oil might be the more intense hydration boost that your lips are craving. We recommend Nooni Applecoco Lip Oil. The name is a little odd, but this cherry scented oil is a lifesaver. This Korean beauty staple offers a lovely shine to your lips, making it perfect for daily use. Plus, it is packed with botanicals and natural antioxidants to work at moisturizing and replenishing your lips.

Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
