For the last four years, my skincare routine has been catered towards removing every trace of my cystic acne from my face. It wasn’t until recently that my acne began to slow down, changing from painful, massive cystic pimples to tinier, more controlled whiteheads. With this long-awaited change, I thought that I was finally on top of my skin and on the road towards a clear, smooth complexion but much to my surprise, it only shed light on an important product that I wasn’t using: sunscreen. I’ve always been a big proponent of wearing sunscreen and have incorporated products like Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen to make protecting my skin from the sun an effortless part of my daily makeup routine. But then quarantine happened and Quarantine Emily hasn’t worn makeup since March. Just like all of my favorite concealers, blushes and highlights, I have been ignoring my face sunscreen a lot these days. And as much as I don’t like to admit it, I haven’t been wearing it when I lay out in the sun as well. Since I hadn’t really been experiencing any sunburns, I didn’t think that my skin had any sun damage but it all became apparent after my latest Cherie Skin Journey scan. In the past, my results have always determined that acne was my main trouble spot, but now, concerns like dark spots and wrinkles—yes, wrinkles!!—are surpassing my blemishes. Shocked by my results, especially because I just turned 26 and being told you have wrinkles is the last thing you want to hear, I began doing my research. Thankfully, the Cherie Skin Journey feature provides tips and product recommendations to address the concerns that the scan detects, easing my nerves and giving me a clear path of how to reverse the damage I’d caused to my skin. The first product, of course, was sunscreen. Using Cherie, I was able to find several face sunscreens that came suggested by people that shared the same concerns as me. I eventually settled on Versed’s Guards Up Mineral Sunscreen, which Cherie reviewers deemed great for acne-prone skin and praised for not leaving a chalky white cast. Just as the reviews said, the formula hasn’t clogged my pores or contributed to any breakouts. These are the moments where I’m so grateful Cherie users post their honest skincare opinions because I am not looking to entertain anymore breakouts. In addition to some great sunscreen recommendations, the app also provided several wrinkle- fighting products, with vitamin C-based serums and moisturizers being the most common. Vitamin C is also a great ingredient for targeting dark spots and neutralizing free radicals in the skin, so I will definitely be incorporating more of that into my routine. Thankfully for my wallet’s sake, the acids in my favorite products also work well for promoting cell turnover, so I’ll be revisiting my favorite AHA serums like OleHenriksen’s Invigorating Night Gel. And, to anyone who thinks they don’t need sunscreen: Wear it! Your skin will thank you for it— trust me.

The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!

Preserving My Curls Overnight
This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (link in my bio) if you are interested! 😊

THIS is why I love BoxyCharm 🙌🏾 These products wouldn’t have been on my radar, but they were delivered right to my door + I absolutely LOVE all of them! And this olive eye!! I’m feelin it! Full tutorial and review are on YouTube now! Link in bio ❤️ Product List: #Violet Voss - Olive You Forever[products]#[FiveStars] This is my first time trying this brand and I'm really impressed! The shadows are creamy, pigmented, and super blendable! FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya I love the cleansing balm so I was excited to try this! It has definitely helped my skin stay hydrated and even makes it look more glowy and matte! I love the texture and it absorbs quickly! #Avant Skincare - Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Micellar Water[products]#[FourStars] This reneges ALL my makeup, even mascara, with no issues! My skin feels smooth and hydrated after using it. However, it has a LOT of fragrance. I don't mind the smell, but it does linger. #Seraphine Botanicals - Apple + Baume Glow Lip Mask[products]#[FiveStars] A great lip mask! Hydrated lips nicely! I like applying this as I start my makeup routine and it's usually absorbed by the time I get to my lips. #Trust Fund Beauty - Lipgasm Lip Gloss[products]#[FourStars] this is a pretty gloss but it is a bit sticky. What do you think about this box?

How to build your skincare routine VOL. I - for many people getting into skincare it can super confusing (even as a professional it is) 😳 • Therefore I’m coming out with a series to help anyone who needs some guidance on where to begin 😉 • 3 parts: Step 1 - addressing your skin concerns! Step 2 - doing some research on different brands, ingredients, products to use or even consulting a professional and Step 3 - buying the essentials and not splurging 🤷🏽‍♀️ • Many esthetician’s and dermatologists offer consultations to clients who need help or guidance so check the ones in your area to see if that’s an option for you 👏🏽 • Not splurging is KEY! The last thing you want to do is drop $500 on products, only to find out your skin doesn’t agree with them or you don’t like them 🥴 • Was this chart helpful? Are you excited about this new series? 💙 • What’s your beginner skincare advice for building a routine? ♥️ CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Advanced Replenshing Toner
