Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!Another day, another healthy trend to hop on in the beauty world! This time around, we’re talking 10-free nail polishes! As most nail aficionados know, switching up your nail look often means being exposed to a multitude of toxic chemicals (I mean, the smell alone says it all!) that aren’t good for your lungs, skin, and nail beds. It’s just been the name of the nail game for years. But thankfully, with the clean beauty trend on the rise, nail polish has finally joined in on the nontoxic ingredient fun. What Does 10-Free Mean? To put it simply, “10-free” describes nail polishes that are created without 10 of the most common toxins found in nail polishes: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, parabens, animal by-products,and fragrance. This hard-to-pronounce list of chemicals are linked to many health risks, including cancer, birth defects, respiratory problems, headaches, and many more. Scary, huh? That’s why ingredient lists are so, so important–no matter the beauty product. Luckily, nail polish brands are finally starting to eliminate these toxic chemicals from their formulas, which means you and your nail tech can let your nail polish imagination run wild in a healthier, safer way. Also, nail polishes “free” of toxic ingredients don’t just stop at “10,” there are some brands that go even higher (the higher the number, the more toxic ingredients the nail polish is formulated without). 10-Free Brands You Should Try Now Now that we know why we should hop on the 10-free nail polish trend, here are some 10-free brands you should add to your beauty wishlist (or even bring to your next nail appointment) right now. 10 Free Chemistry This brand is so “10-free,” they put it in their name! They’re also vegan, plant based, and cruelty-free, and come in all your staple polish shades.

GRWM! New products and some old!
Hello everyone! I did another GRWM using some new and old products! First I started off with a primer. I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I was actually really surprised by this. It reminded me of Tachas silk canvas primer. It went on smoothly and did a good job of blurring my skin. I will say though after I looked at my makeup in the mirror up close it did settle a bit into my pores and my creases and was pretty noticeable. Overall I think this is a good product and will work for people with smoother skin. e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Then I used the elf concealer. I love this concealer. I’ve used it so many other times in my other videos. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation Then I used the winky lux foundation. This actually went on so nicely and was super natural looking. I love how it’s so weightless and decreases shine. I would recommend this for people with oilier skin. the CRÈME shop - "Macro Brow" Angled Brow Pencil + Spooley Then i used macro brow. This is just to fill in the last bits of my eyebrow to look fuller. It’s easy to use and has a great price point. I just wish the pigment was a little easier to apply. You have to push so hard. RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer My favorite brand of highlighters ever. Just so pretty and pigmented. All natural and cruelty free. An amazing brand overall. 💞 fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I used a tinted fresh lip treatment. Love the way they hydrate and the subtle color it gives off. They also smell and taste really good 😂. Hope you enjoyed getting ready with me! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I used.

I'm not sure if I would purchase any of these products. Your thoughts? (Gifted) #whoisnee #cheriecreator
Why pH of skincare products is important?
The pH is defined as the negative logarithm (base ten) of the concentration of free hydrogen ions in aqueous solution. The pH of skin surface ranges from 4.5 to 6 making it slightly acidic. The acidic nature of the whole skin surface was first claimed by Heuss in 1892; however, the first scientific study was carried out by Schade and Marchionini in 1928, who called it the acid mantle. The “acid mantle” protects the skin by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms, regulating keratinization, desquamation and wound healing. Any disruption in the acid mantle disrupts the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection. The skin pH and the buffering capacity of the skin surface are made up of the components of the stratum corneum as well as the secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands. Sweat is an important contributor towards skin acidity owing to its content of amino acid, lactic acid, and urea, which supplement skin NMF levels. The formation of stratum corneum barrier requires enzymes that are pH dependent. Two lipid-processing enzymes β-glucocerebrosidase and acidic sphingomyelinase require a pH of 5.6 and 4.5, respectively. An increased skin surface pH activates enzyme serine proteases, which causes degradation of corneodesmosomes and affects the skin barrier. pH also has a big impact on the skin microbiome. The bactericidal activity, because of dermicidin and nitrites in sweat, occurs optimally at pH 5.5. The resident bacterial flora changes as pH increases causing increase in population and activity of P. acnes and Staphylococcus aureus which are responsible for acne and eczema. All these result in contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris and Candida albicans infections. Products with high pH cause swelling of skin follicles affecting the permeability of the skin making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible. Most of the skincare products are formulated within the pH range of normal healthy skin except the exfoliating products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Vitamin C products and chemical peel which work at low pH. Facial oils, cleansing oils, balms are not pH dependent.
