You’ll be able to swipe through versions of your selfie with the problem areas highlighted. Yes, I know, I cringed my way through it. Scroll down and you’ll also get in-depth tips on how to target: · Acne · Dark spots · Pores · Wrinkles · Dark circles The overview is a little bar under each item that’ll show you whether you’re in the green (great news!) orange (not as good), or red (uh-oh). Then, you’ll find in-depth information on how to treat each issue, what ingredients work best, and products to check out: Best of all? You can update your Skin Report as many times as you’d like to watch your progress as you try out new self-care strategies.

Spoiler: that didn’t happen. I was shocked to discover that there were some issues I hadn’t even noticed like wrinkles—yikes—and large pores. Straight away, I found a recommendation for a deep cleaning mask by Omorovicza for my oversized pores, and A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum by Sunday Riley to minimize fine lines. The Takeaway: I Love It!Ignorance is most certainly not bliss when it comes to skin problems. Cherie’s Skin Report gives you all the tools to address issues and achieve the skin of your dreams. The product recommendations were a brilliant way to get me on track without having to waste time researching on my own. I also appreciated reading authentic reviews from real people that weren’t cheesy sales pitches.

Which moisturizer is right for my skin type?
A little bit of moisturizing a day keeps the dry skin away! Moisturizing is crucial to a healthy skin barrier. All 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿𝘀 help with dry skin. Yet, not all moisturizers are created equal. So, how do you choose the 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿 for your skin? I am breaking it down today for #WinterSkinReliefDay. In general, 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿𝘀 provide a little bit of water to the skin and contain a greasy substance that holds it in. 𝗠𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿𝘀 are formulated in 𝟯 𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀: ✅ 𝗢𝗰𝗰𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲𝘀: greasy/oily and block the evaporation of water from your skin. 💦 𝗛𝘂𝗺𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀: pull water into the top layer of your skin both from the air and from deeper layers of the skin. 🧖🏾♀️ 𝗘𝗺𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀: not really moisturizering but rather to make the skin feel smooth by replacing absent skin the lipids and oils to fill in all the cracks on the skin, helping smooth out the surface of your skin and repair your skin’s barrier. Here is a cheat sheet to help you select the appropriate moisturizer for your skin. 𝗣𝗿𝗼 𝘁𝗶𝗽𝘀 📅 𝗠𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗶𝗹𝘆, regardless of your skin type. Even oily skin needs moisturizing every day with the right type of moisturizer. Please avoid moisturizing reactively, aka moisturizering 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 when your skin is dry. 🚿 Always apply to 𝗱𝗮𝗺𝗽 𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻. P.S I keep my moisturizer in my shower to apply right after I towel off gently. 🔑 𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿. This is key for the winter 🥶 months. You need both a humectant which draw moisture to the skin and occlusive ingredients which keep water from evaporating off of your skin. 🌓𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗮 𝗵𝘂𝗺𝗶𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗿. This is really important in the winter if you are using humectant heavy moisturizer. The dry air can pull the water out of your skin. Sounds crazy right? 🚫𝗔𝘃𝗼𝗶𝗱 𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴. Even if you do not have sensitive skin. Fragrance and coloring are just a set up for possible irritation/allergy and no one has time for that. 🦶🏾 𝗗𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗻𝗲𝗰𝗸. They too need some TLC. #skincaretips #moisturizer #skincareroutine #skincareproducts #dermatologist #dermatology
What it means to blowdry down the hair cuticle!
Let’s simplify what it means when a hairstylist says to blow dry down the hair cuticle: When you think of your hair, think of the shingles on a roof. They’re all laying down but on top of each other. The cuticle of our hair is doing the same! When we blow dry up or at the hair cuticle, it causes all those little shingles to stand up- causing frizz, loss of moisture, and hair damage. When we blow dry down the hair cuticle, all the shingles can lay flat against each other and be the protective barrier that they’re supposed to be. If you’re having trouble with extra frizz or loss of moisture pay attention to the direction that your blow drying. This could make all the difference!
My tips for a perfect Dip Powder mani
I love nail dip powder, but it has been a harsh learning curve Here's some of my tips What I have found most helpful is realizing that dip base is essentially super glue. That's why it dries so fast. And also why you do need to be precise and *always considering cross contamination*. I'm pretty sure this is the only reason why brands offer 3 steps, its just to have less mingling between powder, activator and base as it runs the product. All brands are pretty much the same (except glitter formulas) so dont need a fancy starter kits, just base and activator. These glitters are from Sparkel and Co I use the sprinkle technique instead of dipping. If you sprinkle the powder off a spoon, you are less likely to smudge the base coat. You can very lightly dip the tip in after to make sure its covered. Covering the tips in gradual thin coats works best to prevent cracking. Thick nails last longest. Use a brush to Lightly brush off excess powder. You want to wait at 30sec. Dip base expands as it dries, so after each coat you may find your skin and your nail have fused underneath. try not to get any on your skin, especially under the nail for this reason / just wipe it right away/ unstuck it. clip off any big chunks of excess powder with cuticle cutters before going to next coat Take your time on the powder coats, you can do multiple strokes, get it perfect. I do first coat on both hands first, so I can freely dip as I'm just applying to bare nails. *Now that you move on to second coat, you need to start wiping your brush off on paper towel before returning it to the bottle. * You dont want any powder or activator in your bottle. I use clear coat as well as 2+ coats When you do the 1st coat of activator, use a lot. Then activate your whole second hand so it gives the first hand's activator time to dry Then use a drill on 1st hand to perfect outline or ridges. I find this the easiest way to get a perfect shape but I usually use a file as well to even everything out. I usually dont buff the surface much. I will then wash and properly dry my 1st hand. Activate 1st hand again and make sure under the tips are covered and let it dry while you drill, wash and activate the second hand. My best tip for getting the top coats drying time perfect is using the, one finger, then back a finger technique. Once you paint 1 nail dont touch it and move on to the second. Then, go back to that first nail and second coat it while it's still fresh. Then do a first coat on nail 3, then go back and 2nd coat nail 2, etc. You want to do the first coat in limited strokes, and then take your time with the second coat. Then do the same process on your second hand. Then just let it dry. I'd say it needs minimum 4 mins and as long as 10mins to fully cure. Once its cured, its cured, so go on with your day and enjoy as theres no such thing as soft dip nails. If you do muck up the top coat, don't worry you can easily buff it back to shiney later no problem.

this hair repair treatment saved my split ends!
this amazing hair mask was kindly gifted by Sol De Janeiro. You know that feeling when tranquility washes over you, you hear the crunchy waves crash onto the shore, you feel that cool breeze envelope your body like a blanket, and you can almost taste the salty air? that’s how I felt using this hair mask. It felt like I was on a tropical island, sipping on pink lemonade. no joke, after washing this mask off I immediately noticed that my split ends were repaired. It was like magic. as somebody with major split ends and hair breakage, it literally felt like this mask was working voodoo on my head. i usually lose a lot of my hair, and my split ends look... well split. not with this mask. it hydrated my hair like no other, and smelled SO SO SO amazing. it even made my hair much more manageable to detangle and style. def recommend, 10/10.
