If you’d like to visit a dermatologist to discuss a skincare concern (such as acne, eczema, rashes, etc) but want to continue self-isolating as much as possible, speaking to a doctor through Zoom or over the phone could provide a convenient way for you to do so. Many healthcare practitioners and clinics have expanded to telemedicine to provide a contactless and safe way to discuss symptoms, concerns, and go over prescription options - without the need for waiting rooms or driving in traffic. What is an online dermatologist appointment? During an online or virtual dermatology session, you’ll speak to a dermatologist (and sometimes an assistant) through video chat or phone. If necessary, you may be asked to send close-up photos of the skincare condition as this may be helpful for your doctor to make a diagnosis or if you choose to have your session via phone call. These online sessions also allow you to go over questions about your current prescriptions, request refills, and keep up with your regular check-ups. How to know if you need an online dermatologist appointment According to the American Academy of Dermatology, virtual appointments should be considered an option for non-emergency skin concerns. These could include general acne, rashes, eczema, anti-aging or suspicious moles, skin bumps, etc. + Skin concerns: These could include General acne, anti-aging, rosacea treatment, suspicious moles, etc. + Usual checkup: If you’re looking to social distance as much as possible, you might have considered canceling your usual check-up. An online consultation could help keep you on your usual schedule. + Progress checks: If you are on a prescription regimen, you might have had plans to meet with your dermatologist regularly. With virtual consultations, you can stick to these important regular check-ups, where your dermatologist can keep track of your progress and answer any questions you may have about medication side-effects, re-fills and more. + Prescription refills: Regardless of how far your dermatologist is from you, they’ll be able to send prescriptions to your favorite pharmacy, so you can get your medication on your schedule. If you are unsure if you are dealing with an emergency, it’s best to call your usual dermatologist to find out if your symptoms can be diagnosed and alleviated over FaceTime or Google Hangouts. If it’s determined that your concerns are an emergency, you’ll likely be set up with an IRL appointment or asked to go to your nearest emergency room. When booking a virtual dermatologist appointment, you’ll benefit from: + Privacy: During consultations with your dermatologist over video chat or phone, you’ll still retain the same patient privacies you would expect in an office. + Flexible scheduling: Your online sessions can be as long or short as needed and you may find that some doctors have more flexibility and open slots now that there are fewer patients in the waiting room. + No wait times: In addition to not having to commute to your usual appointment, you’ll also avoid lengthy waiting room session. After confirming your appointment’s date and time, you’ll log into your practitioner’s Zoom, Google Hangout, or Skype room to begin your private session.How do I book a virtual doctor appointment? 1. Contact your dermatologist’s office: Call your usual practitioner to find out if they are offering virtual consultations. If they are, you may have to also cross-reference your insurance policy to make sure that tele-appointments are also covered. 2. Book online: You can find in-network dermatologists offering online consultations through platforms like MDLive or Apostrophe. You’ll be able to browse through specialists, browse through reviews, and filter dermatologists that accept your health insurance. What to expect? - Questionnaires and forms: If you’re booking your tele-appoinment at a new clinic, you may be asked to fill out intake forms before your appointment and/or prepare a list of the medications you are currently taking. - Your usual dermatologist may ask you to fill out a form detailing your concerns to use as an outline during your appointment - this helps save time and helps make sure you don’t leave anything important out during your consultation. - Photo requests: Your dermatologist may ask you to take clear photos of your skin concern or flare-up before your appointment or as a follow-up if a diagnosis was not possible. This might help them better make diagnosis and help prevent an in-person appointment. - Follow-up appointments: Although video chats with your derm save time and allow you to social distance, not all conditions can be treated virtually. Your dermatologist may recommend that you schedule an in-person appointment if they feel it’s needed to fully diagnose or treat your symptoms. The takeawayWhile you may not want to replace your usual in-person appointments with virtual sessions entirely, video consultations with a dermatologist may provide a safe and flexible way for you to talk about any non-emergency skin concerns, refill prescriptions and keep up with check-ups. If you have any doubts about the seriousness of your condition, contact your dermatologist to find out if you should opt for an in-person appointment or if you should request emergency assistance.

Hunting for a Skincare Oil that Does More with Less? Look No Further!
Hunting for a Skincare Oil that Does More with Less? Look No Further!
Like many people, I had hesitation in using oil on my face, afraid of it being too heavy for my skin - especially in summer, when I tend to keep my skincare routine as minimal as possible. However, summer is also the time when I’m the most outdoorsy and hence often in need of remedy for skin damage caused by environmental irritants. I came to know from research that a right face oil can regulate our skin’s oil production, which is the root of many skin issues. And that is how I found HABA - Squalane ll   100% plant derived squalane Squalane is a hydrogenated form of squalene, which is naturally produced by skin cells. It can be found in some plants and shark livers, creating a lipid barrier that protects the skin from dehydration and environmental damage. The antioxidants it contains help to fight against free radicals, boost collagen production and thus slow down the ageing process. Even better news for vegans, HABA Squalane II uses plant derived squalane and is additive-free - you can only find 7 ingredients in it!   Gentle, mild, effective The pureness and naturalness of the oil can actually be felt on the skin. Following the instruction, after using a toner I just dispense and blend one drop of oil on my palms, and then gently pat it into my skin. It’s completely transparent and odourless, lightweight and easy to distribute evenly on skin. It absorbs so quickly and my skin feels instantly smoother and softer. I didn’t notice any sign of pores being clogged - on the contrary, the oil works very well on the slightly sunburnt or acned areas on my face: because of its anti-inflammatory properties, the redness and swelling are reduced significantly just overnight.   HABA Squalane II can also be used as body oil or hair oil because of its powerful moisturising effect, which I will definitely try when I get a bigger size. If you want a minimalist facial oil that can give you more than healthier, vibrant skin, don’t forget to check this one out!

Starting off with a good base is important because it sets the foundation (no pun intended!) for the rest of your makeup. Whether you like more coverage or less coverage, make sure you take the time to prep your skin with products that you love and work for your skin. Let your skincare and SPF sink in for several minutes at minimum before applying any makeup! About me: fair/light neutral-ish undertones, dry skin Preferred foundation coverage: medium Preferred concealer coverage: medium - full Primer: Choose a primer that aligns with your skin type and desired effect. Because I have dry skin, I tend to avoid mattifying/oil controlling primers. I do like pore-filling ones near my nose and cheeks, and hydrating ones for winter time. My year-round pick is the touch in SOL - No Poreblem Primer .This primer has a smooth, silicone-y texture that does blur pores a bit without mattifying or sucking moisture out of my face. Mine’s half empty! $18 Foundation: I prefer a natural finish to foundations. I really love the URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked Weightless Foundation (30NN) because it provides medium buildable coverage while being insanely lightweight. It feels like nothing on my skin. It also works with different types of primers. I recommend this because it’s long-wearing and has a great shade range. I’m not a high end foundation gal, but this one is worth it. $39 Concealer: I’ve been using the ELF camo line for a while. e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer (light peach) and I really love it. It’s got medium coverage right out the gate and can be built up. Wears well. The price is unbeatable at about $6! Powders: I have under eye lines and all concealers crease/settle in. It is what it is. I’ve been using the essence - Brighten Up! Banana Powder for a few years now. It’s got a slight yellow tint to it that adds just a touch of brightness. My concealer is locked in all day and doesn’t look dry or cakey. I wouldn’t suggest it for deeper skin tones, though. $5 For all-over or targeted face powder, I like the Milk MAKEUP - Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder loose powder. You get a ton of product for the price ($29 for 29g) and it’s available in a few shades (mine is “translucent light”). It’s a good powder for all skin, but especially dry, because it doesn’t emphasize dry patches. I don’t necessarily use the UD foundation and this powder together (though I have and it’s great); however, I like to use this powder with dewier foundations or to tame any mid-day oils. Tools I love: AOA studio - AOA Wonder Blender LUXIE - 732 Airbrush Foundation Brush Protools e.l.f. - Flawless Concealer Brush REAL TECHNIQUES - Your Finish/Perfected, Setting Brush BOXYCHARM - FIVE BRUSH SET WITH BC LOGO POUCH #CheriePartner

Am I Billie Eilish yet? Egirl Inspired Makeup
Am I Billie Eilish yet? Egirl Inspired Makeup
Hey Cherie Beauties, I have been feeling the e-girl aesthetic lately and thought I would create an e-girl inspired makeup. I love the whole “drunk blush” look, the colorful eye makeup and the faux freckles. I wanted to step it up as well so I even added a wig to the look. Without the wig, it looks like just another soft glam makeup. I had so much fun doing this! I used the products below to create this look Morphe the Jaclyn Hill palette. I used MFEO and butter as a transition shade, Roxanne, Hunts and Jacz on the crease, faint on the mid lid and sissy on the inner lid. Colourpop Blush Crush palette I used Blush wine on the outer V and pop a bottle on inner corner and brow bone The falsies are from House of Lashes and they are called “temptress wispy”. I LOVE these lashes. The quality is amazing and it is so lightweight. I doesn’t feel like I have anything on my lash line I used BH cosmetics in “blushing in Bali” palette and used it on my nose and cheeks to give that “drunk” look. E-girls seem to love having very flushed cheeks For the faux freckles, I used Colourpop’s freckle pen. What do you think of the e-girl aesthetic? Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner
