Cherie’s Skin Report: Selfies and SkincareLet's talk about Cherie’s selfie cam, an inovative tool integrated in the Cherie app that maps out your face and looks at crucial skincare concerns.
I have a love-hate relationship with my skin. Living in Nevada, the air is dry and hot, and the sun etches lines into your face by the time you hit 25. Because of this, I’ve used anti-aging masks since crossing the threshold into adulthood and invest in SPF laden primers often. Even so, my sink's dullness and enlarged pores stare back at me in the morning mirror. Alongside these concerns, without an expensive dermatology face mapping visit, I don’t know exactly what to use to elevate my skincare routine and develop picture-perfect texture, brightness, and evenness. So, when I stumbled across Cherie’s "Skin Report" selfie-mapping feature while skimming beautician blogs, I was more than intrigued. The premise is simple: scan a selfie (unmade up, shiny, and raw is preferred) and let the app map out your skin concerns. In just moments, you have a detailed selfie that will assess your skin for key areas of interest: acne, dark spots, pores, wrinkles, and dark circles. This selfie is then stored in your ‘skin journey’ record. This record helps you track how products are working with your skin and to check when your skin cycles through particular behaviors.When I first took a selfie, it confirmed what I thought I already knew — I have larger than average pores. The selfie even goes so far as to map out those pores, marking them on my selfie with little white dots. Yikes, I thought, I have a very dotted nose. Again, this was something I can visually note on my skin, so it served as a re-affirmation rather than a new discovery. What I did like about the selfie cam was that it allowed you to scroll through concerns and check their presence on your skins. My selfie told me I had an average amount of wrinkles and lined these with a marker. Like most people, I have a concentration of wrinkles forming around my eyes. Easy fix, I thought; I need to invest in a decent overnight cream. But Cherie went above and beyond my expectations here by beating me to the punch — Cherie had already curated a list of skincare products that match my concerns. Finding an overnight eye cream was as easy as browsing the list and checking user reviews of products that interested me. Sometimes, with the overabundance of skincare advice on the internet, I like being given an easy solution and Cherie did just that. Having my face examined from the confort of my own couch and being presented with products to remediate my skin concerns immediately was a huge plus for me!

According to my new best friend, the Skin Report, one major area of concern for my skin is pore control. I know myself well and I am cursed with an obsessive need to pick at any skin complaint, leading to an oil production problem that would put the Gulf states to shame and, as I reach my mid-20s, that means widening pores and shiny skin. Most of the time, this is easy to control with a decent primer and mattifying powders, but I have been on the lookout for a pore tightening product that will put those days behind me. Again, the Cherie-curated list of pore-tightening products left me with guided choices and put me in the right position to treat my skin. I scrolled through the curated list, found something in my price range, and checked out the fellow user reviews. If I could see people struggling with the same issues I was (large pores and oily skin), and they said they were liking the product, then I added it to my saved items. It was quick, backed by reviews and science, and meant I didn’t have to waste hours reading beauty blogs.The beauty industry has existed with a gaping hole in its center — marketed products don’t always tell us what or who they are for. Saying a product is for oily skin is great, but without a feature like the Cherie Skin Report, it can feel like walking blindly down the beauty aisle. Do I have oily skin, I ask myself? Is it the right amount of oil to use chemical peels on, or am I better off with a stricter cleanser? It might sound like a cry for help (or just a cry of the lazy), but my skin wants answers. Cherie’s selfie feature gave them to me. I genuinely loved this selfie feature. I think it is the best online analysis application I’ve had access to since the Made-2-Fit craze in 2017. Cherie us free to use, free to browse, and easy to order from. Do yourself a favor and use Cherie's Skin Report next time you find your reflection missing that ‘it’ factor.

How to build your skincare routine
How to build your skincare routine VOL. I - for many people getting into skincare it can super confusing (even as a professional it is) 😳 • Therefore I’m coming out with a series to help anyone who needs some guidance on where to begin 😉 • 3 parts: Step 1 - addressing your skin concerns! Step 2 - doing some research on different brands, ingredients, products to use or even consulting a professional and Step 3 - buying the essentials and not splurging 🤷🏽♀️ • Many esthetician’s and dermatologists offer consultations to clients who need help or guidance so check the ones in your area to see if that’s an option for you 👏🏽 • Not splurging is KEY! The last thing you want to do is drop $500 on products, only to find out your skin doesn’t agree with them or you don’t like them 🥴 • Was this chart helpful? Are you excited about this new series? 💙 • What’s your beginner skincare advice for building a routine? ♥️ CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Advanced Replenshing Toner
DERMATOLOGIST OPINION: Acne cleansers
A dermatologist goes to the drugstore and helps point out which cleansers are worth it for acne and which should be skipped. The first 3 scrubs in this video contain beads which can be harsh to the skin and cause microtears. Think of it like washing your face with sandpaper. For acne prone skin, look for a cleanser that has acne fighting ingredients (like benzoyl peroxide) but is also gentle to the skin and is without harsh scrubs Here are some examples of my favorite drugstore acne cleansers: Panoxyl cleanser or Cerave acne foaming cleanser PanOxyl - Acne Creamy Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 4% Daily Control CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser What do you use for your cleanser?

are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
