✔️Results! Let's get rid of Hyperpigmentation! ✨
If you know me for my Acne journey, you know I managed to leave my hormonal acne at bay. For few weeks I've been focusing on my Acne scars (dark spots) or Hyperpigmentation. For my Indian/brown skin it is inevitable to take care of my Post inflammatory Hyperpigmentation as it tends to get worse with time and sun exposure. The key to start with gettind rid of hyperpigmentation is Sunscreen. Mostly an SPF 30+. It is very important to calm those Melanocytes (cells that produce Melanin) and stop/reduce inter-cell transfer of melanin once it's produced. ✨This can be done with the help of these ingredients : 1. Niacinamide - Brightens skin, reduces Inter-transfer of melanin, Calms melanocytes 2. Alpha Arbutin - Brightening agent, stops excessive melanin production 3. L-Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) - Brightens and lightens dark spots 4. Azelaic acid - Brightens, gently exfoliates and calms Melanocytes 5. AHAs and Retinol - Increase cell turnover and exfoliate skin for brightening of hyperpigmentation. These all are my current favorites and are absolutely effective. Their formulation is so good I have been able to enjoy using them. ✨AM routine : 1. PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner 2.

I tested a LOT of sunscreens during our trip & this supergoop was one of my top two! I absolutely HATE the way most sunscreens feel (esp. w/ my oily skin) so I tend to try to get away w/ just using my SPF-containing lauramercier tinted moisturizer on a daily basis…but when on vacay I know that I need heavier protection. This also means finding a lightweight texture that I can reapply throughout the day since one of the worst feelings to me is re-applying facial sunscreen after sweating, esp. since my pores clog so easily. SOLUTION=Supergoop’s Unseen! ▫️Highlights: oil-free, invisible, weightless, scentless, makeup-gripping, antioxidant-rich ▫️This is the first sunscreen I have used that literally has no color & actually feels good to apply (it looks & feels like a sheer, makeup primer, similar to the ysl blur primer that I just purchased the full size of since I loved the mini so much). My skin loves that it’s oil-free & mattifying w/ a velvety finish providing shine control-for once I didn’t dread reapplying sunscreen b/c it doesn’t feel like sunscreen! ▫️Even though it’s only SPF40 (I typically look for higher SPF for my face), it provided great sun protection (this is probably also due to the fact that I reapplied more frequently than I typically do, since I didn’t dread the process for once). It also contains red algae which helps protect against the harmful effects of Blue Light (light emitted from electronics). It does contain silicones (which probably is a reason why it feels so good to apply) but it’s been 5 days since I started using it on a daily basis & my pores aren’t any more clogged than they were to begin w/ & no weird breakouts! Will definitely be repurchasing!

My Favorite Coral-Reef Safe Sunscreens! ☀️🏖
Coral-reef safe sunscreens are a thing and you should definitely get on board. Sunscreen protects our skin from sun damage, but can also be harmful to our coral reefs and sea! The culprit ingredients are Oxybenzone & Octinoxate. Supergoop recently reformulated a lot of their sunscreens to exclude Octinoxate so they are coral-reef safe! Just some general sunscreen tips: - You need at least half a teaspoon of sunscreen to properly protect your face and neck - You need at least a shot glass full of sunscreen to properly protect your whole body - Don’t forget about your neck or your ears - WEAR. SUNSCREEN. EVERY. DAY. (even if you’re just going to be at home - you can still get sun damage from sitting near a window!) Here is my collection of coral-reef safe sunscreens: Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 $34 This is a cult-favorite sunscreen. It has a slippy, smoothing primer-like feel and looks clear on the skin. It also leaves your skin velvety smooth with a satin finish. It’s my favorite sunscreen during the summer to diminish any excess shine and keep my face looking extra smooth. Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 $36 If you have dry skin or LOVE an extra glowy finish, this is your perfect sunscreen! It has a tint when you pour out the product but doesn’t offer any coverage on the skin. It also has a pearlescence to the formula that makes your skin look super dewy without glitter or shimmer. This is sometimes a little too much on me as my T-zone can get quite shiny on its own. Instead, I use this as an additional product, after applying another sunscreen all over my face, and blend it only on my cheekbones for a natural looking highlight! Supergoop! - CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum SPF 35 Sunscreen in Light $39 This is an amazing sunscreen product that offers lots of coverage. Personally, I don’t like super heavy coverage products so I don’t use this as my sunscreen step. There’s no way I use enough of this product at a time to actually protect my face and neck. What I do is apply another sunscreen first all over my face, and then I’ll blend a thin layer of this CC cream on top for some light coverage. Supergoop recently reformulated this CC cream and I’m super curious to try it out!

Best times to wear sunscreen? -
Hello...EVERY DAY is the best time to wear sunscreen! ALWAYS-inside or out! (Incase you miss it, the sample of the Unseen Sunscreen is shown on the board. It’s very light and hard to see even on the hand. That’s what so awesome about it - IT’S UNSEEN! @cherie) I personally have become a sunscreen addict! And damn proud of it!! 😉 I’m going be real and break it down, I only wore sunscreen when I went to layout or spend a significant amounts of time in the sun, say playing sports or hiking. I’m embarrassed to admit I never wore sunscreen for my daily walks, out running errands, watching a quick game of sports...nothing that I didn’t “feel” like I was getting large amounts of sun. Sure, on the beach I religiously applied it every 1.5 hours. I hate sunburns so I always thought of sunscreen as a preventative measure for burning. Boy has becoming a skincare junkie made me see the light! Not only are you saving yourself from a sunburn, you will also help prevent your face from premature aging! Just ask my 18 year old daughter! I keep after her constantly to use sunscreen and show her my suns spots as proof! I’m am VERY fortunate that I don’t have as much of a problem as I should. I spent way too much time in tanning beds in my youth. YES! We need sunscreen every single day! Inside or out! My home is actually pretty well shadowed from the sun (sunscreens & canopies) but I have now changed my mindset and wear sunscreen every single day, even inside. I look at it as an addition layer of protection as well as for moisture as I use ones with added Niacinamide, ceramides, Hyaluronic Acids, etc...the good stuff! I received Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 from @cherie It’s a totally invisible, weightless, scentless and great as a makeup primer. I keep this one in use for when I am going to leave the house and plan to wear makeup. I have normal to dry skin and this works wonders for me. It sinks quickly into my skin leaving no trace. I like to let it absorb fully for about 10 mins before going into my makeup routine, just a personal preference. I love that it helps diminish the look of my pores. What’s your favorite sunscreen? I recently added Supergoop Matte Screen (thanks again, Cherie) and First Aid Beauty Tinted Moisturizer into my collection to test out. Are there certain sunscreens you’d like me to review? I will be spending a week on the beach in a few weeks and plan to test out a different sunscreen each day. Have you changed your sunscreen ways? Please share with the class...😊 ❤️ my @cheriefamily! 🍒 #CherieCreator

Let’s Debunk Some Skincare Myths
To say there’s a plethora of beauty information out there would be an understatement. It can be difficult to determine what are good tips and what are myths, especially if there’s conflicting information. Let’s debunk 3 common ones that I still hear/see around the web/beauty community. ￼￼If your makeup contains SPF you don’t need SPF underneath. Why is this myth incorrect? You would need to apply a lot of foundation, tinted moisturizer, or BB/CC cream to get the proper amount of SPF needed to protect your skin. For example, I have the ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 with SPF 40. I only apply about the size of a dime for my whole face, and this product only provides sheer-light coverage. I would need multiple layers of this to protect my skin from UVA/UVB. You should apply SPF underneath your makeup (at least the size of a quarter!) to ensure adequate protection. I love the Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 because it’s good for all skin types, doubles as a makeup primer, reef-safe, and is cruelty-free. ￼￼Face wipes clean your face as well as cleanser. Nope! Face wipes may seemingly remove all your makeup and SPF residue, but they don’t have the ability to properly cleanse your face. I don’t usually use face wipes, but I received these RAWGANIC - Pure Refreshing Facial Wipes for Christmas from a family member. I use them to remove makeup before heading to the gym or at the end of the day. If using at the end of the day, always follow up with cleanser to remove excess residue!!! Face wipes would be a good option in the AM if you have extra dry skin and want to feel clean without having to wash. ￼Don’t mix vitamin C and niacinamide. Why is this a myth? It was believed that combining anything with vitamin C, especially niacinamide, would negate the effects of vitamin C. Vitamin C is awesome for brightening and fading dark spots, and niacinamide is great for enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne scarring. Combining these two powerhouse ingredients, such as in the GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner , is a match made! That toner makes such a difference in my skin’s appearance (pores, dullness, scarring). Don’t want to combine but still reap the benefits? Use vitamin C in the AM (such as THE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Brightening Cream ) and niacinamide in the PM (such as PURITO - Centella Unscented Serum which contains niacinamide). You can have your cake and eat it, too! I personally will use these serums (or other ones in my collection) one right after another, but everyone’s skin is different. About me: DRYYYYYY acne-prone skin

Battle of the Hyped Sunscreens
My skin type is combo oily that can lean more dry during the weather changes or just randomly. My skin concerns are acne, oiliness throughout the day and also dehydration. I’ve ranked these popular hyped sunscreens based on how they worked for me personally (going from favorite to least favorite). My favorite is Unseen because it’s a primer and sunscreen in one, is lightweight and I haven’t had an issue with pilling. I prefer SPF 40 or higher. . Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Key Ingredients: Complex Derived from Meadowfoam Seed (increases hydration levels), and Red Algae (helps protect against blue light emitted by electronic devices). Texture/Consistency: Gel Scent: None Price: $34 for 1.7 oz / 50 mL Experience: Is designed to be used as a primer, makes it quicker to get ready. It feels so lightweight, I can’t even tell that I’m wearing it throughout the day, doesn’t pill or make me oily. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, I definitely am going to purchase the full size of this! It simplifies my routine and lightweight. . Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion 50 Default Title Key Ingredients: Sunflower Extract (protects your skin from external environmental elements) and Rosemary Leaf Extract (has a calming effect on the skin and is rich in antioxidants). Texture/Consistency: Lotion Scent: None Price: $32 for 5.5 oz / 162 mL OR $58 for 18 oz / 532 mL Experience: It was too heavy on top of a moisturizer and made me look greasy, but applied by itself it was lovely (have a glow, but wasn’t too heavy). It also doesn’t pill when I put my makeup on. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, it would be more for people with dry skin, but it’s moisturizing enough to act as my moisturizer too so I apply it by itself (or on top of serum). . FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that helps filter harmful UV rays) and Alteromonas Ferment Filtrate and Vitamin E (both help protect against environmental aggressors). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Liquidy Price: $34 for 1.5 oz / 44 mL Experience: I love that this is tinted, it doesn’t leave a white cast at all! It is lightweight, easily sinks in, and doesn’t make me oily throughout the day. It also doesn’t pill at all, so easy to put makeup on after. Repurchase/Recommend?: Maybe, I just wish it was a higher SPF. . DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that protects from harmful rays) and Algae Extract and Sunflower Sprout Extract (both protect against free radical damage). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Lightweight Cream Price: $36 for 2 oz / 60 mL Experience: It feels heavy and doesn’t sink in all the way, plus pilled and made my CC Cream look cakey and terrible. Repurchase/Recommend?: No, it pilled badly and doesn’t work well with makeup on me.
