Cherie Skin Report: A Personalized Skin Scanner That Treats Your Individual ConcernsWhy your unique skin treatment starts with your own signature assessment, by Cherie’s in-house Master Esthetician
Too many times I am left wondering why my clients walk through the spa door in such a skin rut. They are overwhelmed by products on the market, and constantly pushed to try new releases, even when the product may not be right for their skin type! Individual assessment of one’s skin starts in my treatment chair. I take the time to look through the skin on their forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, and neck, to help determine their skin type. Without this personal assessment, it’s no wonder they’re constantly trying out new products – without one’s professional input of looking at your skin, how can you really know your skin type? I see dehydrated skin types over-exfoliated, I see oily skin types dehydrating their skin. As much as I am thrilled that they come in to get professional help, I can’t help but feel saddened to know that they can’t access a program to be able to address their skin concerns when needed. This is where Cherie comes in! At first I was skeptical – an app that can actually address my clients’ concerns just by taking a photo? But with the technological advances of smartphones today, plus Cherie’s exclusive skin scanning system, even I found myself blown away by the accuracy it provides to help my client’s (and myself!) truly discover their authentic skin type. At first I was skeptical – an app that can actually address my clients’ concerns just by taking a photo? But with the technological advances of smartphones today, plus Cherie’s exclusive skin scanning system, even I found myself blown away by the accuracy it provides to help my client’s (and myself!) truly discover their authentic skin type. First, let’s break down the types of skin: • Oily – oily skin types produce more sebum, and generally have larger pores – which may actually reduce wrinkles and fine lines long term! • Dry – not to be confused with dehydrated skin types, those with drier skin tend to produce less sebum, but generally have more clear complexions • Dehydrated – dehydrated skin is usually indicative of a loss of moisture, which is why ingredients like hyaluronic acid are important! Dehydrated skin often gets confused with dry skin, and while some can be both, even an oily skin type can have dehydrated skin! • Combination – oily in your T-zone but dry in the U-zone? Combination skin types benefit best from a personalized skin scan, and the majority of people have combination skin • Sensitive – prone to redness, easily irritated, sunburn easily… sound familiar? Sensitive skin types require the utmost attention and correct products to ensure they don’t damage their delicate skin Now on top of your unique skin type, there are also skin issues! Just because you have a certain skin type, doesn’t mean you won’t potential suffer from a myriad of different issues! This can include: • Acne • Dark circles • Dark spots • Dullness • Loose skin • Puffiness • Fine lines • Wrinkles • And more! Another aspect that can affect your skin? Your natural skin tone! You were genetically predetermined to have your own unique and beautiful tone, which can also be determines in your personal skin scan. Just another helpful addition in the appropriate product choices specific to you. So, how do I figure out my skin type, tone, and issues? Super simple – just download the app! Once downloaded Cherie takes you through a few easy steps to accurately scan your skin to determine your skin type, and address your issues. After that, the freedom of knowing what products can benefit you in the short (and long) term can help you feel fresher, reduce breakouts, help reduce fine lines & wrinkles, and assist you in making sure you are investing in products that are specific to YOU!The benefits don’t stop there… Cherie can then link you to brands you might love, and other skin care lovers who are looking to brighten and benefit from a more personalized skin care system.

Black Owned Intimate Care ✨🌹
I did a review on this brand before but in honor of BHM I def had to bring it up again ! #Saltxo - Yoni Shower Gel[products]#[FiveStars] #Saltxo - Femme Rejuv Oil[products]#[FiveStars] I use this gel everyday! It leaves my Yoni energized and clean. I’ve never experienced any irritation and I’m extremely sensitive in that area. It smells very herbal like and a little goes a long way! ($17.99) The Femme Rejuv Oil is a great staple for irritation. I use this baby after my waxes, Emergency shaves, and after getting busy. I find this to be the best oil I’ve ever used down there. A little goes a long way. ($30) This brand is usually always out of stock! She sells out so fast but I always manage to get one thing. I definitely recommend if you love intimate soaps . Do you have a favorite intimate soap ?
How to conceal hollow under eyes
Hollow under eyes are a pain to deal with, and I see so many people doing it incorrectly especially with baking ! I’m an advocate for healthy skin underneath to have the best makeup you can achieve, but it’s all about ingredients & layering concealer the right way. 1. For me and any one with hollow eyes should stay away from matte concealers since they suck you eyes dry to the point of you see creasing lines & putting loose setting powder will show tremendously. I start with cream based concealers 2. Use a corrector first to diminish your under eye color & smooth complexion. For me I use a concealer similar to my skin or a bit orange under my eyes 3. I top off with a shade lighter to conceal for brightening under the eyes. 4. When using a loose powder , I press in the powder to give it a seamless look because why do we want clumps or residue from the powder ? I never liked baking🙃 What are your thoughts ? How do you conceal your under eye looks?
The system that replaced my retinoid!
Hey Cherie fam! So as some of you know I embarked on a new skin journey around adult acne. I was on a Derm prescribed regimen of cerave, epiduo, and spironolactane (see my posts from sept-October 2020 for more deetz) to help combat my acne. By October, my skin had improved a lot! Texture was down significantly, but I felt like the retinoid (epiduo) was making my skin super sensitive. I was prone to inflammatory acne (you know just red bumps, nothing to pop type) and I felt like the retinoid also destroyed my skin barrier because my eczema was really flaring up on my face. So I made the scary decision to drop my retinoid! I was scared to do so because it helped with my acne so much, and I really did not want it to come back. But I needed something less damaging to my skin, and better for my eczema. I did a bunch of research and knew to keep my acne at bay I needed: ￼acids in my routine still to exfoliate ￼nourishment like ceramides or niancinamide to help my skin barrier ￼deep moisture but NOT pore clogging So, one thing I did was add Heraux - Heraux Molecular Anti-Inflammaging Serum in the AM to help repair my skin, but I still needed something for my acne! Enter CLEARSTEM an acne system developed by a dermatologist duo who both suffered from acne in their adult lives. This duo wanted to create a skincare line that treated acne and aging at the same time! The line is also ￼cruelty free, vegan, has no hormone disrupting ingredients I was lucky to receive a PR package from them, so I dedicated the months of December and January to really give this system a shot! My routine was: AM: ￼wash with CLEAR STEM - GENTLECLEAN – Vitamin Infused Calming Wash this wash had a nice citrus scent and is super gentle on the skin. I use it with my PMD clean for 60 seconds and it’s helped with inflammation ! ￼tone with INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner more daytime antioxidants! ￼serum Heraux - Heraux Molecular Anti-Inflammaging Serum to help repair damaged skin and do day time anti inflammaging ￼moisture/SPF EVERYDAY HUMANS - Rosé S'il Vous Plait SPF30 Gentle Mineral Sunscreen I LOVE this sunscreen. It’s actually quite hydrating and I don’t really need to use a moisturizer before! PM: ￼wash with CLEAR STEM - VITAMINscrub – Antioxidant-Infused Scrub Cleanser lightly exfoliates skin and smells so fresh ￼serum CLEAR STEM - CLEARITY – AHA Mandelic Acid Serum + Vitamin C this baby does a lot of the work in keeping acne at bay. It has a nice consistency and I leave it on for 15 mins before I use the next serum. ￼serum CLEAR STEM - Cellrenew Collagen Infusion Serum ( Anti-Acne + Anti-Aging Stem Cell Serum) this serum is so hydrating I love it! I feel like I’m putting nutrients right back into my skin YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream

Are lash serums worth it? Worth the hype??
I’ve been using a lash serum for the last 3-4 months and I’ve finally decided.. are they worth the hype? These photos are my ONE month progress, I’ve seen such a huge difference with the length, shininess and thickness which is absolutely amazing. This is a product that you can purchase at medical spas or from the Ten Spot/Spas! Going to keep using this for another 3 months to compare from when I started to then, I have been told you need to continue use of the serum to maintain the results! Have you tried any lash serums? I know maybelline has launched their own 😊 #lashserum #lashgrowth #longlashes
