While this prevents you from doing the usual routine of going out to have a pamper day for your hair and skin, you can always turn this waiting phase into a self-care period. To help you get started, here are indoor beauty activities you can do while helping flatten the coronavirus curve: 1. Sort out your beauty and care productsThe most important thing you should not forget to do while on home quarantine is to sort your makeup and personal care products. Throw out the already expired products you’re keeping and separate those you do not use. This little activity will also help you to note things you don’t use often and things you don’t need. Eventually, it can help you save money because then, you’ll know what products you actually use. 2. Test out some DIY'sThis is your chance to try out those DIYs you bookmarked on social media. To start, check out all the ingredients you have in your pantry and see what you can do. With a few ingredients, you can try creating your facial mask, body scrub, soft or hard wax, and moisturizer. Just make sure to test a little first on your skin to make sure you’re not allergic to what you create.3. Switch out to natural deo If you’re curious about trying to switch to natural deodorant, now is the best time to do it. Staying at home will remove the fear of the transition smell and sweat you need to undergo before the product kicks in. After the lockdown or quarantine period, you’re probably done with the detox phase and you’d be more comfortable with using your new natural deo. 4. Wash hair less frequentlySince you’re not going out as often as you did before, try to experiment with a new hair-washing routine. If you’re used to washing your hair every day, which the experts say isn’t healthy for the hair, this is the time to see what schedule is best for you. Try washing every other day and observe how oily your hair can get. If you’re happy with the new routine, you’d save up more on your shampoo and conditioner usage. 5. Have a makeup detoxThis is the best gift you can give your skin. Since most of the time you’ll be staying inside, there’s no need for you to put on heavy makeup. Try to go on a bare face look, and pamper your skin through focusing on skincare. Check out all the skin care products you have and see which products you often forget to use. Then, try to be consistent with your newly discovered routine and see how you glow after. Besides saving up on makeup, this is also the best time to discover the skincare products that work for your skin and the products you should avoid. 6. Have a hair detoxSimilar to the makeup detox, this is the time to let your hair breathe. If you are a fan of changing hair colors once in a while, take this time as an opportunity to give your hair a break. It might be tempting to experiment with new looks, cuts, and colors, but try to stop yourself. You can always do all those once everything gets better outside. For now, focus on letting your hair recover. 7. Get enough sleepHaving all the time for yourself may tempt you to do as much as you can not to waste time, but don’t forget to have enough rest. The best defense you have against coronavirus is having a healthy body and mind. Try to train yourself slowly to sleep early and wake up early. Your body and skin will thank you for this.Conclusion Being stuck inside your home should never be a barrier to get the skin and hair care you deserve. Take this moment to give yourself the most transformational beauty yet. At Cherie, we believe in beauty without barriers. Looking for the best face serum? Or the best eye cream for dark circles?

What is the best way to apply spf and how often?
What is the best way to apply spf and how often?
Understanding what products to use in your routine can be overwhelming, add trying to figure out how much sunscreen you need to put on your face makes it all that more complicated. Thankfully there are some tips to know exactly how much sun protection is the right amount. Proper sun protection is extremely important for everyone, especially if you are also into skincare or use actives (also known as exfoliants or acids). The best way to apply sunscreen or spf is to use the 2 to 3 finger rule for liquid sunscreens. This rule was popularized by Tiara aka MakeupforWOC who is an esthetician on Twitter and Instagram. This method involves using the index and middle finger length of sunscreen, with the option of adding your ring finger to ensure full sun protection for your face, neck and ears. To make sure you have enough sun protection before leaving the house use a full teaspoon to cover the face, neck and ears, then apply whatever else is left over on the back of your hands and half a teaspoon for only your face. When applying sunscreen, make sure there is an even application, rubbing it into the skin and wait 15 minutes before any sun exposure. Reapplication is recommended every 2 hours after the initial application. If you are also wearing makeup there are the options of spray, powder, cream/lotion for spf. The rule of thumb for reapplication of sunscreen is to blot your face before, as the oils from your face can breakdown the spf. My two fav sunscreens are LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ and EVERYDAY HUMANS - Resting Beach Face SPF30 Sunscreen Serum #CheriePartner

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?
