Trending Super Ingredient: Collagen ✨
Collagen has been a trending super ingredient for what seems like some time now! There are even brands (like Elemis and Algenist) who take this ingredient to a whole new level and create entire lines dedicated to them. I wanted to take a second and talk about what collagen can (and can’t) do for the skin. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the majority of your body. It provides the firmness and strength of the skin. It is something your body produces naturally but at the age of 25 the production slows down. The skincare market has turned the term collagen into an anti-aging buzzword. I’ve seen many claims that it can help stimulate collagen growth but this isn’t true. The only thing topically applied collagen will do is moisturize the skin. It’s a great moisturizer at that but the molecule is too large to penetrate the top layer of skin therefore most “benefits” brands claim with it are not true. I wanted to break down some products that I’ve had the pleasure of trying (which were gifted by Elemis except for the little marine cream SPF 30 which I got in gratis) that contain collagen. Despite collagen not being the super anti aging powerhouse the market makes it seem to be I do like these products. First, the ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30 is a lightweight cream perfect for the morning. I have oily yet dehydrated skin but I’ve noticed as the weather has been changing it’s been slightly more dry so I’ve been using this. It absorbs really well and has a really pleasant berry smell (I don’t normally care for scents in skincare but I make exceptions as my face isn’t sensitized right now). Next, the ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask has been my FAVORITE go to night eye cream. It has a thick gel consistency which feels amazing under the eyes. It’s really moisturizing and luxurious. Next, the ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich which I’ve personally been using as a neck cream at night. This cream has a thicker consistency compared to the regular marine cream making it perfect for those with dry skin. It’s very moisturizing and smells like the normal marine cream. Next, the ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Energising Marine Cleanser is something that I hate that I like it so much because it’s over priced for a cleanser (tbh everything Elemis is overpriced and I only recommend it if you have the money to spend/want to). It smells AMAZING like the marine cream (which I’m okay with since it’s a wash off treatment). It’s a gel consistency that lathers really well without stripping the skin. It does a really good job cleansing my face and I’ve yet to have it feel stripped. Finally, the ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm which I do think is very moisturizing like the whole line but it’s not my favorite cleansing balm. It washes off nice but it’s a bit goopy in consistency and the vapors irritate my eyes.

Never Give Up On Your Skin
Looking at my unfiltered photo you may be thinking that I don’t suffer from cystic acne but I do and I did. In my early teens my skin was PERFECT. By college, I would get 1-2 pimples near the time where my red seas be flowing. In my early 20s and as I’ve aged it got worse. I experienced enlargement of pores, cystic acne, blackheads on a repeat vicious cycle. Now in my late 20’s I combat all of those knowing that I’m a combination type. I did Seeing as my skincare was considered a bar of soap, I set out on my skin journey. Trying products that were absolutely no good. Yes, I trotted to Target and have picked up Clean & Clear. I’ve gone down the road and used the St. Ives Scrub 👀 Do I have to wash make up off every night? 😖 I remember feeling lost and down in the dumps, frustrated because I couldn’t see results. Mistaking tightness as a measure of effectivity, I suffered from dryness. Causing my skin to produce more oils, I made my pores bigger. 😟 To this day my pores on my nose and cheeks are still very visible to me. Popped too many a pimple because I couldn’t resist.✖️✖️✖️ I do Throughout every mistake I became motivated to learn. This was my skin and certainly if it’s mine then it’s within my control. I obsessed because I feel that the more time I spend on it, the more beneficial it will be for me and my well being. Sometimes that means breaking the bank 🏦 and sometimes you put on your cheap skates. 💨 Through my visits at the dermatologist and guidance from my mom, I’ve come to accept so much despite feeling like giving up. 🔚 Lessons Along The Way No one is going to get as close to my face as I do to a mirror before my shower 🛀. Unless you’re my husband who smooches me and always tells me I’m beautiful. 🥺 No one is going to have that much motivation to look at my picture and zoom x100000000 magnification 🔍 on it just to count my pores. Just because it says pore clearing or acne treatment whatever marketing buzzword does not mean that it’s good for you. There are skincare products that can make it worse. Even just by going with good reviews, checking the ingredients is worth the while. Put those ugly products into permanent purgatory. 🗑 After enough time and patience, results will slowly show more and more each day. Scars that existed no longer existed. Deeper scars that start to look smaller. There are no days off to application or improving my routine. You will CONQUER and tame this beast you call skin! ⚔️ I’m glad that there’s a medium to express what’s helped me along the way. I’m also here to learn more from the community. All I know is what I’ve learnt so far and I’m so happy to share that I couldn’t believe this is my 50th post on Cherie! 🥳 Accept and love your skin, show yourself the patience you deserve. Thank you so much for reading. But most of all beside those lessons, I should have never forgotten the sunblock. 🤣 You live and you learn.
I just tried OLAPLEX Nº 0 & Nº 3 🤷🏻♀️
☁️This 2-part treatment system takes 20+ minutes. You do it on dry hair before you shampoo & condition. First you saturate your hair with Nº 0, wait 10 minutes, don’t rinse, then add Nº 3 & leave on for an additional 10+ minutes. Nº 3 can be used alone, but Nº 0 is meant to be used only as a precursor for Nº 3. I originally bought this for my bf’s heavily damaged hair, but he’s so lazy about using anything😑 So finally we made it happen. My hair isn’t currently damaged from bleach like it used to be, however, because I have a neurological disease, some days I’m in so much pain, tossing & turning in bed all day, I pull my hoodie over my head & use a heating pad on it. Days like this my thick hair becomes a wreck. Swipe for photos. I definitely get a lot of breakage around my hairline, I’m so over it lol, I’ve got silk pillowcases coming in the mail💤💌 I picked a “bad hair day” like this from the other day after my flareup calmed down to try this 2-part treatment system for you guys. I’m aware that no hair treatment can make a strand of hair full length again once it’s snapped short... I was more curious to see what this treatment could do for my bf’s hair. He washes it waaay too much because he thinks it’s dirty due to his job, which gives his hair tons of sun damage. I was mortified when he told me he washes it twice a day! Don’t do this! It strips away your natural oils! His hair is so brittle & dry! OLAPLEX - No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment Kit $28/5.2 of Nº 0 + 1 oz of Nº 3 Everyone seems to be raving about Olaplex products, so I had my hopes set pretty high. This may be an unpopular opinion, but this treatment didn’t impress me much. I have to use sooo much product for my hair & it’s only shoulder length. My hair is extremely thick, I’m no stranger to using extra product, but this was a little ridiculous. I used almost the entire full size Nº 0 & every last drop of the sample size Nº 3. The amount I used on my bf was quite little. His hair is very thin & only like 4-5” long. OLAPLEX - No.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment $28/5.2 oz He thought I was using a lot, because the nozzle dispenses so slowly (which is good I guess because the consistency is like water) but the level only went down about a half inch. Not really any scent. I found it so time consuming to do this step myself. The applicator made me feel like I was in highschool using box dye. I actually transferred it to an empty (& clean) Briogeo spray bottle because I was so frustrated. It dispensed it a lot faster, but still be very careful. I had a cut on finger & it burned really bad, so don’t get it in your eyes! OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector $28/3.3 oz Similar to typical hair conditioner in texture/consistency/scent-easy to apply. THE RESULTS: His hair: still fried This just wouldn’t be feasible for my hair considering I emptied a $28 bottle for 1 use. Hair was soft after nothin special.

Over-Exfoliated Skin: What To Do NextOver-exfoliation has a plethora of symptoms, ranging from redness and inflammation, tightness of the skin, dryness and flakiness, irritation bumps, rashes, breakouts, and a stinging sensation. With the rise in popularity of at-home chemical exfoliation, it’s easier than ever before to take it a step too far. Everyone is trying out TikTok-famous products like The Ordinary’s AHA 30% and BHA 2% Peeling Solution without an understanding of how strong it really is. Chemical exfoliation is all the rage now, due to its ability to clear up acne, even out the skin tone, and give you a glowy look. But none of these things will happen if you don't exfoliate properly!Sep. 29
