So you may be wondering what is the difference between a dermatologist and esthetician? Dermatologists and estheticians are skin care professionals. Study.com states, “The key distinction is that dermatologists are medical doctors and qualified to diagnose and treat medical conditions that affect the skin.  Estheticians concentrate on the skin’s appearance and may use facials or other treatments to improve the skin’s appearance or care for problems such as acne.”
 Dermatologists must obtain a medical degree ( 8 years of college) in order to practice. They can treat a variety of skin disorders and conduct surgical treatments as well.  Estheticians must complete the hour requirement by state and receive a license to be able to practice.
Dermatologists can treat medical conditions of the skin
Most of the time,  you will return to your dermatologist to either refill a prescription or if you're receiving medical treatments. While estheticians can administer many of the same professional skincare treatments as dermatologists such as microneedling and dermaplaning, estheticians are not permitted to prescribe acne prescriptions or conduct botox injections and fillers.
Estheticians are trained to help treat the appearance of skin
Skinpen.com states, “Estheticians may work in spas, salons or medical settings under the direction of dermatologists.” You get the benefit of receiving a personalized skincare regimen when you visit an esthetician.. Some of the treatments estheticians can perform include extractions, waxing, dermaplaning, microneedling and Intense pulse light/lasers to treat a variety of issues. They also have a variety of facials that can treat many skin concerns such as acne or hyperpigmentation.

My Top 3 Favourite Lip Combos
My Top 3 Favourite Lip Combos
I have tried so many different lip products and combos, and these 3 combos are definitely my favourite at the moment! All these products are long wearing and look amazing on the lips. Lip Combo #1: KKW Beauty Nude 1 Lip Liner + Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick I’m a huge fan of rosy nude lips and the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk lipstick is perfect! I like to pair it with the KKW Nude 1 liner because this liner acts as a sort of contour for the lips since it’s darker and more brown than the lipstick. KKW BEAUTY - KKW BEAUTY Nude Lip Liner Charlotte Tilbury - Hot Lips Lipstick Lip Combo #2: KKW Nude 1 Lip Liner + KKW Nude 1 Lipstick This has been my go to nude lip for a while now! I could never find the “perfect nude” that worked for my skin tone, and finally I’m so glad that I did. This combo is the perfect light nude shade and is perfect for everyday wear. It goes with any makeup look too! KKW BEAUTY - KKW BEAUTY Nude Lip Liner KKW BEAUTY - Nude Crème Lipstick Lip Combo #3: Kylie Cosmetics Kylie Lip Kit (Lip Liner + Matte Liquid Lip) There’s no denying the fact that Kylie Jenners pout is iconic. So what better way to achieve her go to lips than actually use her go to lip products!? The “Kylie” Lip Kit is her go to (hence the name haha) it’s the perfect pink nude and makes your lips look super plump because of the darker lipliner that comes in the kit. The pairing of the darker lip liner with the pink nude liquid lip contours your lips for that Kylie pout effect! KYLIE COSMETICS - KYLIE COSMETICS Matte Liquid Lipstick

Start with your hair in 4 quadrants or sections. Begin a Dutch or French braid on either front section and continue until the end of the section When you drop your next section, drop from the opposite side. Continue braid and secure with an elastic Continue braid on opposite front section. When you reach the previous braid hop over and grab hair from the new section. Secure with an elastic. That’s it! You have a criss cross braid! Xo
Textured Skin?? 3 Tried & Tested Products!
Textured Skin?? 3 Tried & Tested Products!
Up until I really started understanding🤔my skin and how certain ingredients work... I always had textured skin due to acne, blemishes and lack of regular exfoliation. Well here’s my experiences from lessons learnt throughout the years for all those people who are on the same boat as I once was.. I’ve learnt the key🔑to smoother skin is knowing the underlying issue and the reason behind your skin’s uneven texture and incorporating exfoliants in a regulated skincare routine. ⁣ When treating the uneven skin texture, you need to ask yourself whether or not you are using exfoliants (both physical and chemical)? If your answer is NO, then you have bumpy skin and you need to start incorporating an exfoliant into your skincare routine. Lactic acid is a good place to start as it suits all skin types. However, what really works for my skin type (oily/combination) is Salicylic acid. Be sure to start with an exfoliant by using once or twice a week and only take it up to using it 3 times a week. No more than this please ☺️ ⁣ If your answer is YES, then ask yourself:⁣ “How many times am I using the exfoliants and how strong are they?” If you’re using exfoliants more than 2 to 3 times a week and you still have bumpy/textured skin then there’s a high chance your skin’s barrier is not happy. Work on repairing and strengthening your skin barrier by using products geared towards providing hydration💦and moisturization. Periodically, exfoliating definitely will help improve your skin texture! Here are some of ⁣My Tried & Tested Products for bump-free skin: 1. GOOD MOLECULES - Pineapple Exfoliating Powder 2. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Peptide 21 Amino Acid Exfoliating Peel Pads 4. dermalogica - Hydro Masque Exfoliant Follow & Glow! ✨ #cheriepartner ⁣ ⁣
