Sharing beauty tips and reviewing products have become a trend, especially with the presence of health professionals and experts online. You’ve probably seen skin care-related content on any social apps, whether it is about getting rid of acne, skin whitening, or having the most recently adored glass skin. People are so hyped about beauty tips and products that a couple of new skin care myths are shared almost every day. The danger with that is that consumers are not certain whether these are safe or not because most of these are not yet dermatologically tested.You can’t blame those who easily believe in these myths because probably these people: Just want to look great Want an easy and quick solution for their skin problems Can’t afford insanely expensive products, so they rely on DIYs Here are three common skin care myths you should stop believing: Myth No. 1: Applying ice on your face can shrink your poresHave you tried applying ice or cold water on your face thinking that it will shrink your pores? According to medical experts, heat or cold does not affect the enlargement of your pores. Applying cold water on your face deep cleanses excess oil and debris on your skin, and that’s probably why you feel like your pores have closed. In fact, the sizes of pores are purely genetic, and constantly exposing your skin from extreme heat and cold can further irritate them.Myth No. 2: Coconut oil is good for healing dry skin People have been using coconut oil for treating not only their faces but hair as well, but is it truly beneficial? According to the Medical Doctor of 1Clinic in Toronto, Dr. Linda Nguyen, coconut oil is one of the most comedogenic oils sold in the market. Comedogenic oils are those that have a thick and wax-like texture, so they can clog pores, which causes pimples and blackheads. Coconut oil forms a wrap-like film over that pores, which restricts and traps natural oils and dirt as well.Myth No. 3: You can easily remove your blackheads using pore stripsIt is probably one of the most trendy skin care products that every skin care enthusiast has used and reviewed. You know how satisfying it is to see pore stripes peel off blackheads, but is it advisable? Dr. Nguyen said that pore strips cause extreme harm on your skin, especially on the face where it is most sensitive. Unfortunately, pore heads don’t remove blackheads. Instead, it peels off hair, dead skin cells, and sebaceous filaments. You may experience redness, hives, and dry patches when using pore strips, and it’s not normal. These skin irritations only reveal that your skin’s protective barrier got disrupted. ConclusionEveryone wanted to have good, perfect-looking skin that we all become so excited to try on new trendy products. Be careful, though, because this act can bring us more harm than good. Before buying any products or trying skin care trends, make sure to assess your skin first. You can learn what type of skin you have by consulting a dermatologist or by just taking a selfie using a mobile app that can assess your skin and send you a skin report.

NEW BEAUTY YOU NEED✨
NEW BEAUTY YOU NEED✨
I know so many people haven’t had the chance to really dress up during covid and wear any makeup at all even with all the releases😭 Sometimes there are so many releases that it gets hard to keep track of everything and to really know where to spend your money so I’m here to tell you, this is where you really should 💸 Ived followed Vesca Beauty on IG since another influencer mentioned the bronzer like they originally released and the inclusivity with the shades really was the hype! Not only that but the inclusion and the quality of the products were amazing too so it’s a win win!🥳 After getting my hands on the two launches they had, I knew I needed more so I went out and bought their new highlighters and their latest release with their lip oils! 👏🏽 so here are some initial thoughts When it came to the lip oils, I really didn’t think much, I thought they maybe too slippery but that brown shade was calllllling my name and I knew I needed it and honestly it looked so beautiful on their model, I decided to go for it! ✊🏽 and I have to say, this is my new GO TO lip product! I’ve been obsessed with the fenty gloss bombs for years now but this has kind of replaced it for the time being VESCA - Lush Glow Creamy Lip Oil they are legging luscious like the name and super moisturizing and hydrating and pack a punch with colour but you can wear it sheer as well! I mean they are so soft and velvety without feeling like their is a ton of product on the lips! I’m thoroughly surprised As for the their highlighters, I really like the shade but just haven’t been able to play with them as much but they do have a a very buttery formula when using your fingers so as a eyeshadow, this will be gorgeous VESCA - Stargaze Luminous Glow I didn’t expect anything less from such an amazing brand and the size of these are just right as well! Not too big yet not tiny either cause really, who actually finishes an entire highlighter?🤭😉 #cheriepartner
YOU NEED THIS EYE CREAM!!!! I love it so much! 😍
YOU NEED THIS EYE CREAM!!!! I love it so much! 😍
I love this so much had to cut it open and use 😍 Do you love some product so much, you use every last ounce of it 😅❤️ I did with this eye cream! Let me tell you, If you have dark circles, dry under eyes, creasing, crows feet and discoloration (I had all these) YOU NEED THIS EYE CREAM!!!! 🤩 @nuria Defend Triple Action Eye Cream ✨Nuria - Defend Triple Action Eye Cream I had two of these and at first I used for some days loved it and for some reason it was laying under a pile of other eye creams I got later. Recently I was digging into my eye cream section and found it. I started using this again and I was surprised to why I left using this.😍 ☑️So, What is it? It's a lightweight gel eye eye cream made with: ✨Mulberry Root: helps improve the appearance of dark circles by brightening and evening out skin tone. ✨Ginseng: helps fight the appearance of wrinkles and helps give skin a more radiant and youthful appearance. Ginseng also helps balance the oil on your skin, making it suitable for all skin types. ✨Cucumber: helps reduce the appearance of eye puffiness thanks to its flavonoids and antioxidants. ✨Vitamins: help restore your skin’s antioxidant activity, preserve your skin health, and help prevent the visible signs of skin aging. ✨Antioxidants: combat free radicals, which can accelerate the skin aging process by damaging collagen and attacking healthy skin cells. ✨Sodium Hyaluronate: naturally occurring in your body, helps restore moisture to delicate under-eye skin. The main ingredients Ginseng and Mulberry root extract is what works magic for your under eyes. ☑️My experience: It lifted the discoloration I had around my eyes and diminished the look of fine lines and crows feet completely. It made my under eye area so plush and hydrated it looks plump with just one use. I have seen significant improvement in my dark circles and hyperpigmentation. I used this on one of my dark spots to see if it really helps getting rid of hyperpigmentation and it truly does!! I have a whole post made for Ginseng and how it helps with many skin concerns. I believe in Ginseng root and I truly love the Results it gives me 😍 You need to try this eye cream! I'm sure you won't be disappointed! ❤️

Alleyoop (formerly Sphynx) makes super affordable products with cute packaging! The alleyoop - All-In-One Portable Razor is $15 on their website and you only have to buy it once and just refill the razors and shave bar. The refill packs are $9. They no longer have the black color in my video and have made some product enhancements. The razor now comes in pink and navy. The new blade has 3 razors instead of one and has a moisturizer strip on it. The razor also now can pivot for a closer shave! Pre-shave moisturizing bar is made with: - chamomile - Olive oil - Shea butter - Cocoa butter - Coconut oil The bar activates with water and leaves skin feeling soft after your shave!! $15 well spent! #CheriePartner
