Feel free to reach out at all you time or let me know a product you would like to see reviewed!! Follow my on Instagram @katieealm #cheriecreator ⚡️⚡️⚡️Use a Properly Formulated Care Line"One of my favorite care lines that's perfect for the summer is called Defy Damage by Joico. It's a four-part care line with a shampoo, conditioner, mask, and leave-in product called Protective Shield. What makes this line a little different from other care lines is that the have something called Smart Release Technology. This means that the products have 3 days of protection against the sun and hot tools and the Protective Shield keeps you hair 5 times stronger. During summer, the main reasons we get frizz are because the ends of our hair strands get damaged from the sun, color damage, or chlorine. Protective shield protects against all of these as well as UVA and UVB rays." Take Care of Your Hair Before and After Swimming in a Chlorinated Pool"Before swimming, you can comb some conditioner through your hair to keep it moisturized and protected. It's also good to braid or secure your hair in some other way to make sure it doesn't become overly tangled or damaged. If your blonde hair turns green after a swim in the pool, use a clarifying shampoo."Use Products That Will Protect Your Hair"If you're looking for a detangler, one of my favorites is Brazilian Blowout's Ionic Bonding Spray. It's a color-safe detangling spray that leaves no residue behind. It will help detangle and seal your hair cuticles to promote shine and less frizz. Beach and Body Shape is perfect for those with straighter hair. It's a texture spray you can put in dry hair that will give it a high-shine, waxy finish so it helps smooth you hair down without weighing it down. Sometimes, if you have fine hair, product can make it look limp and dirty. But with this product, your hair maintains its body and looks fresh all day long."
BRAZILIAN BLOWOUTIonic Bonding SprayGet a Brazilian Blowout"For a professional service, I would recommend a Brazilian blowout. As far as anti-frizz treatments go, Brazilian blowouts are the best smoothing and de-frizzing services you can find that are widely available. It's the perfect summer service to get done because it seals the hair cuticles down for up to 12 weeks, keeping hair soft and shiny. It also helps because, during those 12 weeks, you won't have to blow dry your hair. You can air dry and have frizzless hair."Don't Touch Your Hair"Touching your hair can also lead to frizziness and hair problems. If you can, I suggest brushing your hair through with conditioner while you're in the shower, putting product in in once you get out, and blowdrying it with a diffuser attachment. That helps you keep your hand oils out of your hair which is what causes frizz in the first place."

CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?

There's no doubt that a lip gloss could give a wash of light color while still being versatile enough to go with the rest of our makeup look. Notice how the gloss also defines our lips and gives them volume? More and more beauty brands are improving their formulas, maximizing their shine, and creating tubes of gloss that are more irresistible, and we are 100 percent here for them!

cystic acne progress
cystic acne is a journey like no other. It’s unpredictable and frustrating. But, you have to celebrate small wins whenever possible. almost 2 weeks ago, I woke up with my cheek severely inflammed having sprouted a ton of cysts seemingly overnight. big, red, painful ones. unfortunately, my cystic acne is very much hormone, stress, and diet driven which makes it hard to manage at times. today, I can finally appreciate that I was successful in bringing the inflammation down. eight days may seem like a long time but in the world of cystic acne, that’s huge progress! It looks and feels so much more comfortable. if you use tretinoin, stick with it! I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel and while no day is perfect when you’re prone to cystic acne, it does get better. feel free to ask me all your cystic acne questions!
you need this ice roller from Amazon
every morning and night I use this ice roller on my face to de puff and get my blood flowing. Easily the best $12 I’ve spent. Everyone could use a little sculpting but when you have cystic acne, ice rolling is key in keeping some of the inflammation at bay as well. ESARORA - Ice Roller
