Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!The concept of beauty rest has always been around, but there’s a kernel of truth in there. At night, the skin holds more power to absorb the nutrients in your skincare products. There are also no environmental stressors at night, such as sun damage and environmental pollution, both of which you’re subjected to during the daytime. For these reasons, your nighttime skincare routine is extremely important. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all routine, but following a regimen backed up by science will help you achieve that highly-coveted glow. Ditch your old routine, stop following random skincare blogs, and follow this step-by-step guide instead. Stamped with approval by the skin experts, you’ll be blessed with that glow in no time: Step 1: Remove your makeup and other environmental debrisSleeping in without removing your makeup is a sin—it may very well be the culprit to that new pimple you’re nursing. The experts recommend beginning your nighttime skincare routine with a gentle makeup remover. Plenty swear by classics and cult favorites, such as micellar water and witch hazel toners. If you’re looking for a more natural remover, however, virgin coconut oil won’t let you down. Step 2: Wash your face with a mild cleanser After removing your makeup, it’s time to cleanse and refresh using your choice of facial wash. Regardless of your skin type, it’s integral to use a cleanser that won’t rid your skin of natural oils. Irritation is a side-effect of chemical-ridden products, as these disrupt your skin’s microbiome. You’ll be doing more harm than good, so choose your cleanser wisely!Step 3: Wipe your face (gently) with a tonerSubject to opposing sides, the use of a toner is perhaps the most divisive of all skincare routines. Many believe it’s utterly useless, while other people swear by its effects. For what it’s worth, however, experts encourage you to use them. Toner calibrates your skin, as it balances pH and moisture levels. For those suffering from oily skin, a toner serves as a magic potion. It’s best to use a mild one, though, especially products infused with tea tree oil, green tea, and other natural ingredients. Step 4: Treat your skin!The first three steps should be followed with zeal, but this step allows you a little more freedom. Here, you can customize your skincare routine according to your skin issues. Apply brightening serums or prescription products, along with any spot treatments. Eye creams are also essential, especially since this is where wrinkles and fine lines usually develop first. When looking for an eye cream, always choose a product that has peptides. This boosts hydration and firms your skin. Step 5: Moisturize To conclude your skincare routine, reach for your trusty moisturizer. Experts recommend using one that promotes skin repair, however, as well as a barrier against possible pollutants (your pillow, for instance). It’s also vital that you choose a hydrating product without clogging your pores. For the best moisturizers, opt for those products with hyaluronic acid—they help your skin retain moisture.Optional Step 6: Use a face maskIf it’s the weekend and if you have extra time to indulge, apply a face mask. Experts recommend using a mask once or twice a week, usually after cleansing and before your nighttime skincare routine. For the dry skin: A hydrating mask is best, such as those infused with snail mucin gel For the oily skin: A clay mask should be considered, as this rids your skin of any impurities and clogs For the acne-prone skin: A healing mask will help your skin get rid of acne, such as masks with tea tree oil ConclusionWhat may work for them may not work for you, but it’s always a good idea to follow a guide for your skin woes. This step-by-step nighttime skincare routine isn’t foolproof, mainly because it’s important to listen to your skin. There are specific products your skin may need, especially when it comes to acne treatments—use this as your journey’s foundation to glowing skin!

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! 💕
Sensitive Skin Game changer ❄️
What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner

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
