Here at Cherie, we love taking a good photo (I mean, who doesn't?) but with most of us missing our friends to snap all our pictures, we got innovative with capturing a really good shot. Keep reading to see how members of team Cherie got creative in doing a photoshoot at home! 1. Dreamy vibes with plastic wrap and lip gloss

Yes, this photo was taken with plastic wrap, lip gloss, and a bedsheet. All you need to do is wrap your phone with plastic wrap, dab a little bit of gloss on your front camera for that dreamy effect, and crinkle some of the platstic wrap by your front camera to create the cloud-like edges. I hung the bedsheet right behind me and matched my fit and makeup for a "lavender dreams" feel.2. No filter needed with golden hour

The sun is the original filter period. Catching golden hour is one of the surest ways to take a top-notch selfie, and our Content Intern Korah showcases that light perfectly here. Wait until the sun starts to set and find a window that faces west (towards the setting sun) and let those golden rays give you a glow. 3. All the right angles with next-level mirror pics

Take your mirror pics to the next level by utilizing multiple angles of your reflection. Amber, Cherie's Social Media Coordinator, takes these mirror pics with a different angle to show off her face in more ways than one. If you are sheltering in place with a skilled photographer like Amber here, your photos will come out THAT much better. 4. Colorful filters with goggles or glasses

Color up your world with goggles and glasses you have laying around. Playing around with any sort of colored glass and your camera will warrant a great shot—Allison here got crafty with a pair of work goggles just laying around her home. This photo trick would work great with just about any colorful transparent glass.5. Any look you want to do with cool photography apps

Healed in under 1 week! How I prevented scarring
Healed in under 1 week! How I prevented scarring
🐺So I have a 9 month old Siberian Husky, he’s got way too much energy for me sometimes. He totally booped me in the eye with his teeth & basically bit my eyelid. I was honestly so f***ing worried, eye skin is so sensitive & my skin scar easily, even from bruising. So how did I get this back to normal in 6 days? First things first... Regularly applying (yup, multiple times a day) SUNSCREEN will help prevent hyperpigmentation. ☀️When you get a cut or bruise, even a baby one, your skin barrier has been compromised. Even the healthiest skin barrier will not protect you from UV rays whatsoever & any new skin growing after an abrasion is extremely susceptible to UV damage, regardless of your skin tone! I’m super pale, but even with skin that doesn’t burn easily, newly generated skin tissue will become darker if you don’t use an SPF to protect it. I included a pic of a scratch I got from my dog several months ago, where I totally didn’t protect it from the sun. I can be lazy about body sunscreen & this proved to me that almost any broken skin will scar if it gets sun. I used: KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 But honestly any sunscreen you like with a decent SPF is key for scar prevention. Reapply & reapply! I love this formula because it’s so moisturizing! Full review in a previous post. Keeping your skin hydrated & moisturized is super important too, you want to give your skin nourishment while it heals. Which brings me to the second most important thing. 🐌A repair serum: Beauty of Joseon - Repair Serum : Ginseng+Snail Mucin I have fully fallen in love with Snail Mucin after this serum! Because Snail Mucin is a stress-induced excretion, it's comprised of ingredients meant to repair or protect from injury. These include growth factors, which work by triggering the growth of new skin cells & new collagen. This particular serum is really affordable-$17. It contains over 3% Snail Mucin & it’s over 63% Ginseng extract, also amazing for skin repair & evening tone. Allantoin is another component in the secretion; healing properties, calms irritation & stimulates cell regeneration Also fragrance/alcohol free! Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum Limited Edition This is also packed with Ginseng & other reparative botanical extracts. This really helps me retain moisture in my skin, I use it 2x a day & have noticed generally brighter & clearer skin in the last few months. You use this after cleansing or toning, before other serums. TATCHA - The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream After a couple days I added this. ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream Great for sensitive skin & has vitamin E. I alternated between this &: TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream Also used this: Beauty of Joseon - Glow Serum : Propolis+Niacinamide Almost 60% Propolis + 2% Niacinamide
Unfortunately this didn't work great for me! 🥺

I have dark circles and fine lines and I look for eye creams that target these concerns. Recently I won this Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum in Cherie Cheerleader prize!! INDIE LEE - I-Waken Eye Serum I'm glad to have put this to a test! I liked the liquidy thick serum consistency and the milky texture of this product. Unlike many other eye creams it's great for absorption in under eye area. I was expecting it to work amazing for me but sadly it did not! This is what the product details are: What it is: A hydrating, antioxidant-rich daily eye serum that addresses dark circles and puffiness, leaving skin with a refreshed and firmer appearance. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Dark circles, Puffiness, Dryness Formulation: Serum Highlighted Ingredients: - Horse Chestnut, Mountain Ash Bud, and Witch Hazel: Address dark circles and puffiness. - Chamomile, Arnica, and Cornflower: Help soothe the delicate eye area. - Hyaluronic Acid: Helps to promote long-lasting hydration. 🍁 My Experience: I experienced it's great for people with puffiness and under eye bags. It slightly flattened my under eye area but for my major concerns like dark circles and fines lines this isn't working as effectively as my other favourite eye creams do. This certainly doesn't mean it won't help my concerns in the long run or it may brighten my under eye areas slightly if I use it consistently. With my other eye creams such as Nuria eye cream and The Ordinary Caffeine solution I see difference in my dark circles in just little than a week but I gave this more time than that to see if it works for my specific concerns and it did not do well. I will post an update of 5-6 weeks of use!

Check out @madihomewoodcandid review on her body balm and share your own winter secrets in 🏷 Love Body Care “With the cooler months rolling in, I’m always on the hunt for great body care products. My skin can get really dry and flakey, especially on my shins. This year I’m trying to get ahead of the flake craze and really keep my skin hydrated. But sadly, this product wasn’t the one for me 😔...”

Marula oil is extracted from the marula tree nut found in Africa. Benefits of marula oil: ✔️Rich in antioxidants- which help fight off free radicals from pollution and UV exposure. ✔️Anti-aging – the antioxidants also help with its anti-aging properties to help keep the skin looking youthful. ✔️Rich in fatty acids- (oleic and linoleic fatty acids) that soften and moisturize the skin. ✔️Lightweight - What’s great about marula oil is that it hydrates the skin and absorbs well without being too heavy or greasy. ✔️Immediate glow- I definitely notice my skin is radiating after I wear this oil. I love to use this instead of a moisturizer as a last step in my nighttime skincare routine, especially during the winter months! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil Drunk elephant - $72. yes the packaging is beautiful, but that price point is way too high. It only has one ingredient: marula oil. Why is it so expensive? It is likely due to the processing. It is cold pressed with a patented process of unheated extraction. It is unclear if this process is necessary to maintain all of the benefits of marula oil. The Ordinary - 100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil Ordinary- $8. Also 100% cold pressed marula oil. The processing may be slightly different. The application is a little less light weight, and for this reason slower to absorb, but still blends easily into the skin and gives an immediate glow. Final thoughts: after trying both, I would choose the ordinary product because they are both so similar! What would you choose?
