For Cherie's Self Love Week, Toni shares how stillness and peace can be the ultimate tool in helping you achieve your goals. A New Way To View Self Love "These days, I think people often identify self love by doing. In western culture we have been indoctrinated with our value being defined by doing, productivity, and achievement, and I think we have allowed that type of culture to spill into the wellness, self-love, and self-help movements. But for me, self-love is not just about doing, it's about being. I think it's great that we have become more aware about self-love especially as women, but there is also an information overload on how to love yourself, and we forget to just be."Self Love Is Not A Critic"Self-love is best found effortlessly, and the best way to approach an effortless journey to self-love is to be curious. In my own experience, effortlessness is found in stillness. And not a stillness with an expectation for a miracle, but just watching my mind do its thing and seeing what comes up for me if I'm still for 5 minutes or 20 minutes. I sit there and ask myself what brings me joy. When we think of self-love as a list of things we have to accomplish, that's when self love becomes a self-critic. Take it easy, do the things that make you feel good."Find Your Pleasure"I just started practicing something every Wednesday I call 'pleasure practice' and I do things with no goals. No achievement. Just do it because it brings me joy and pleasure. The other day I did something as simple as go to a coffee shop, read a magazine and drink a cup of caramel apple cider — and I've done that before, but there was something so pleasant in being present while drinking that tea and reading that article. It brought me so much joy and pleasure that I thought I couldn't contain myself. It made me realize and think about how much I might've missed out on me by not being present."Balancing Productivity and Stillness"Nature is a phenomenal teacher. Our planet is constantly rotating yet it is always working. What can we do to reflect nature in that way? Where we can always be in movement but still operating in stillness? The way to achieve that is through (caring for your) mental health. Tending to your mental health will allow you to produce and achieve without the stress of it. What does that look like? No matter what you are doing, allow your mind to be present in doing just that. And that is a muscle, it's a skill set that takes consistency to activate that way of being. You have to start somewhere or your mind is always going to be in chaos. We can counter the culture of 'just do, do, do' by taking a moment to appreciate all the things we have instead of overwhelming ourselves with the things we want. Without stillness, your mind will always be in stress and chaos, even when doing the simplest things"All Your Answers Are In The Mirror "If you're wondering how you can love yourself in every moment, know that the answer is always in the mirror. The best thing you can give yourself is to really look within. The best person to teach me how to be me is me. We sometimes want someone to give us the answers to make it easier, but the best answer is always to look in yourself and listen to what you want, what you feel. Allow yourself to be a spirit in a human body and remember all of this is a class for you to learn, change, and evolve."Toni's Most-Loved Beauty

HOW TO: AT-HOME BLOWOUT
At-home blowouts are the future of hair styling! Ever since I went to Dry Bar a year ago to get a blowout for $80 (which is just ridiculous in my opinion), I’ve been mastering my at-home blowout. I purchased the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer at Ulta which completely changed the game for my hair after shower hair routine! REVLON - One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer Bonus Tip: Remember to spray a heat protectant in your hair before drying it. 😊 OUAI - Heat Protection Spray To get max volume and flipped ends, I take 1 inch sections and start at the root of my hair. I go as slowly as possible so that all of my roots are dry. Next, I twist the brush so that my hair is wrapped around it all the way down the section of hair. I repeat this process until I reach the top of my head. Lastly, I take a straightener to flatten any flyaways or unwanted curls if there are any left. That’s it! In total, the entire process takes me about 20 minutes. My hair feels so soft, light, and looks amazing afterwards. The next time you think about going to purchase a blowout, I recommend trying it at home first! 💕
Cul Skincare Challenge with Dr. Cula
Hi guys! I am Dr. Cula, a dermatology resident in New York. I am here to debunk all skincare myths but more importantly, here to foster excellent skincare practices. November is National Healthy Skin Month! So, I thought to kick off my page with a skincare challenge to promote healthy skincare habits among Cherie users. Join me on this 6 week skincare challenge for healthy and more beautiful skin. The challenge consists of three main steps to be done in the morning and evening (swipe to see). I added the HA serum to the evening regimen to minimize skin irritation and dryness from the retinoid, which can be exacerbated by the colder weather. So, why join me on this skincare challenge?...Because: 🥰 skincare routine is self-care. 👯♀️To slow down aging, consistent use of retinoids will help take the years off 💅🏽Healthy, glowy skin is a great confidence booster! How do you monitor your progress? A picture if worth a thousand words!! 🤳Take a selfie at day 0, week 3 and week 6 and share your progress on cherie! 🤳Use the Topic Tag 'Cul Skincare Challenge' and tag me so I can be sure to check out your posts! Pro tips: consistency is key to reaping the benefits. Your skin may get worse before it gets better if you are new to retinoids. Key is not to stop and to keep pushing through it! Here is my current skincare regimen: 🔆Morning Cerave cream-foam cleaser Skinceuticals vitamin C serum ISDIN Eryfotona Ageless ultralight tinted mineral sunscreen 🛌 Night Cerave cream-foam cleaser Vichy Mineral 89 hayluronic acid serum Altreno (my retinoid) LaRoche Posay Toleriane double repair face moisturizer It is OK to use any brand you want, as long as they are non-comedogenic. Good luck! And keep me posted with any questions/concerns!! Stay tuned as I will be reviewing the products that I use currently in my regimen. IG: @theculderm
Hyaluronic Acid 101 x DermDoctor
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a humectant that famously holds 1000 times its weight in water. It pulls in water from the environment and from the deeper layers of your skin. This ingredient seems to be ubiquitous in skincare products nowadays and it can be found in a lot of moisturizers. Benefits: -Immediately plumps the skin, softening fine lines and wrinkles -Hydrates the skin (specifically high-molecular-weight HA) -Assists in wound healing Dermatologist Tips: -Hyaluronic acid is your first step after cleansing -Must be applied to damp skin! -If you live in a dry climate, make sure to moisturize immediately after -Can be used once or twice a day -Safe to layer with most other skincare ingredients My Top Picks: VICHY - Minéral 89 Face Serum This contains a high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, which has moisturizing properties and sits on the surface of the skin without causing inflammation. It contains only 11 ingredients making it ideal for people with sensitive skin (like me). Also, Vichy’s proprietary volcanic water has actually been studied and proven to have skin protective and healing properties THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum The price point here is unbeatable. Again, with a simple ingredient list, you’re unlikely to run into issues with allergy or irritation. This contains a multi-molecular-weight HA, which allows you reap additional benefits, in addition to hydration and plumping. This also has matrixyl 3000 peptide, which can stimulate collagen synthesis Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum Both high and low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid for added benefits. This also contains glycerin (another amazing humectant) and vitamin B5 (an amazing anti-oxidant) NATURIUM - Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5% A great option fragrance-free, cruelty-free option from Naturium! This contains multi-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid that hydrates, plumps, and repairs the skin. #CheriePartner
