Redness, blemishes, pits, and scarring may make you feel like they are the only things people see when they look at you. There are literally thousands of products on the market to cleanse, treat, and cover acne blemishes and their scars, making it hard to know which ones to trust. Worse yet, if you overtreat or use too many products to conceal it, it can make your acne worse! Are you confused by the alphabet soup of concealing products on the market? You're not alone! Let your friends here at Cherie find the best cc cream for acne-prone skin.The ABCs of CC CreamsCC cream is also known as color control, color correction, or color concealer cream. It is applied to problem areas on the skin to reduce redness, sallowness, and even out skin tone. They differ from regular concealers, foundations, and BB creams because they are lighter in the formulation and have a more whipped appearance. This means you will get more mileage from them because only a small amount is needed. This makes them ideal for users with oily skin and helps to prevent additional breakouts. Though results may vary, regular use generally results in a reduction of skin discoloration over a 6-8-week period. Users may find that options to match skin coloring may be somewhat limited, however, and will need to mix and match with a foundation to achieve the best coverage.Cherie’s Directions for Color Correction1. Know your tone before you own- prevent a poor color match by knowing your skin tone before you purchase your product. Consulting an expert at your favorite cosmetics counter may give you a helpful second opinion. 2. Spend your dollars, but use some sense- there is a wide range of options for cc creams on the market. To settle your sticker shock, give the drugstore options a try to help you narrow down what it is you are looking for, then graduate to higher-end options. 3. Your cc should be oil-free- for people with acne, oil-free options prevent further breakouts. If possible, look for products that are also additive, fragrance, and paraben-free as well. 4. Say yes to SPF- look for formulas that have an SPF of at least 30 to help prevent discoloration from sunspots, wrinkles, and other sun damage. 5. Make your cc cream double-team- look for products that have other skincare benefits to minimize the number of other skin treatments you currently use. These include moisturizers, pore minimizers, and formulas that reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The less you use on your skin, the less likely you are to develop acne breakouts. 6. Keep your skin squeaky clean with regular hygiene- before you apply your cc cream, don’t forget to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and tone. This ensures it will cling to your skin for all-day coverage. It will not be as effective on oily, dirty skin. 7. Remember, use your cc sparingly! Use only what you need for adequate coverage to prevent cosmetics-induced acne. 8. Let your fingers do the walking- your fingers are the best tools to distribute the product- make sure your hands are clean before applying. Brushes or sponges may also be used. The CCs You Need to See (See)Physician’s Formula Super CC ($17)This product uses all the colors of the rainbow to give you one even one. One of the more affordable options, this formula uses a combination of green, yellow, and pink pigments to reduce redness and increase warmth and radiance. Fans love that it spreads easily, that only a small amount is needed, and that it doesn’t sink into fine lines. Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($39.50)Ah, Clinique, always a reliable standby. This formula works best for dry to normal skin. The color range is very limited, but fans loved the “dewy” look it gave them. Though a bit thicker than the other options here, users with dry skin love its moisturizing and plumping qualities.Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream ($36.00)What's that in the sky? It's a bird; it's a plane…It's…a terrible joke about a great product. Supergoop uses Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids along with apple extract to tone and reduce the hyperpigmentation that often accompanies acne. Fans love that it lasts all day, stands up to sweat, and can be layered with other products without further breakouts. The color range, however, is very limited. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream ($40.56)Containing aloe vera, jojoba, shea butter, vitamins B5, C, and E, Juice Beauty’s cc cream is like a smoothie for your face! This product is ecologically friendly, certified cruelty-free and organic, and contains SPF 30-40. Users love its rich hydration, anti-aging factors, and the healing and anti-inflammation properties of zinc oxide. IT Your Skin But Better CC+ ($39)This formula does everything but your laundry! It provides full coverage, anti-aging hydration, SPF 50, and a 12-shade variety of colors. Users describe it as having a cooling effect, providing excellent all-day coverage, lightweight, and wonderful for both sensitive and aging skin because of its plumping qualitiesErborian CC Crème ($44.00)Fans of this product often use the word “magic” when they describe its effects. Is it witchcraft, or is it the combination of healing zinc oxide and antioxidants? Either way, it can be used for all skin types, has SPF 25, and users describe reduced pores, softer skin, and more radiant skin after a month.

3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
Hair concerns: Flat, Thin These are my 3 quick, go-to hair tips for volumizing my hair! This is great for when you’re on the go and don’t have too much time on your hands. 1. Use a Root Volumizer Hot Tool (Bed Head Little Tease Hair Crimper for Outrageous Texture and Volume) - Using this root volumizer hot tool will give you the volume of teased hair without the tangled knots and hairspray. It works by making small crimps or waves in your hair and gives your roots volume from the texture it creates. Just make sure to cover your roots with a layer of hair to conceal the textured areas. - Directions: Clamp the hot tool at your roots, brush it out with your fingers, and cover it with a layer of hair. Spray a moderate amount of hair spray to keep it in place. 2. Dry Shampoo - Thin, flat hair usually looks lifeless because of the lack of texture and thinness of the hair shaft. This means that having freshly washed hair can actually be your worst enemy if you’re going for a volumized look. Adding in a hair product can help at the roots by allowing for your hair to be styled into place. You can use any texturizing spray to do so, but I like to use dry shampoo especially for second-hair days! It helps soak up the oils in my hair as well as volumizing my roots. - Directions: Use any dry shampoo your own and spray onto your roots and brush it out. 3. Hair Extensions - Adding hair extensions onto your head will effortlessly give the illusion that your hair is much thicker than it actually is. The added layers will make the roots of your hair appear uplifted. You can choose from lengthening hair extensions (like mine) or extensions that match your hair length. Either way, it’ll make your hair on your head look much fuller. - Directions: Use clip-in hair extensions and clip it onto your roots. Cover the clip-ins with a layer of hair and spray hairspray it to keep it in place. #cheriepartner #sponsored

Cul Skincare Challenge with Dr. Cula
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
