Skincare Trends of 2020: Yass 👍 or Pass 👎?
Hey there! There have been numerous skincare trends that have been going viral this year. Although just because it’s trendy, doesn’t mean it’s effective. ☆ ANTI-POLLUTION If you live in a city, you’re likely exposed to all types of pollution such as free radicals, UV exhaust fumes and even blue light screens are part of the problem (source: HuffPost). I live in San Francisco, CA and definitely deal with the issues mentioned above especially pre-covid. Studies have shown that those who live in larger cities age faster than their suburban counterparts and there is a correlation between air pollution and suffering from skin problems. DE’s D-bronzi and c-firma claim to fight against these issues. •C-Firma contains 15% l-absorbing acid and 1% Vitamin E which create a hardworking complex that help neutralize pollution and environmental stressors (source: byrdie). This product is one of my HG and I use this religiously. I have seen improvements regarding scars and hyperpigmentation and I think the anti-pollution effect is just a bonus •D-Bronzi contains raw cocoa powder which mimic the antioxidant benefits of vitamin D without the damaging effects of UV rays. I am not convinced this will do more than your typical tinted moisturizer with skincare ingredients. However I do love this product especially during the summer time. This also help me darken my foundation needed. • I love how my favorite skincare products contain anti-pollution protection, but I’m not convinced simply because there hasn’t been enough research. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy products specifically for anti-pollution purposes. ☆ANTI BLUE LIGHT •My tinted sunscreen from Elta MD contains ingredients that can potentially protect the skin from blue light damage. •I honestly don’t agree with the anti- blue light hype. Research show that dermatologists are not fully convinced that blue light protection products will do more than a mineral sunscreen with a strong dose of iron oxide. ☆ NIACINAMIDE + HYALURONIC ACID •Both of elta and supergoop sunscreens I own contain Niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. •HA has been proven to plump, moisturize the skin and niacinamide has a ton of benefits to the skin. It strengthens the skin’s barrier allowing it to hold moisture better for prolong hydration •I am on board with the HA and niacinamide trend. Research shows that both of these ingredients are beneficial to the skin. Long story short, I am not on board with anti-pollution and anti- blue light skincare products simply because not enough research has been done. However, skincare products that contain hyaluronic acid and niacinamide is a different story! I believe those two ingredients are definitely worth the hype! If you made it this far, congratulations because I know that was a lot. Thank you for reading :) Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner

Sunscreen With a Little Something Extra
Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 I think we all know by now that we need to be wearing sunscreen everyday - not only does it protect our skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays that can lead to hyperpigmentation, cancer and other harmful effects to the skin but it can also help other skincare ingredients - Vitamin C specifically - do their job properly and fully. (The sun can actually deactivate Vitamin C, meaning that all that money that you’re spending on Vitamin C products is essentially a big, fat waste of money if you’re not using SPF! These days, though, sunscreen and SPF can do so much more! That’s what’s so great about the sunscreen that I’m using and loving these days - Unseen Sunscreen by Supergoop. Not only is it a sunscreen/SPF that’s protecting my skin everyday but it is also an amazing makeup-gripping primer - I love multi-functional products! Advertised as a 100% invisible, 100% game-changing makeup-gripping primer with SPF 40, this award-winning formula is weightless, scentless and has a slightly glow effect that allows you to create any type of makeup, or no-makeup look. Unseen Sunscreen contains clean, skin-soothing ingredients such as red-algae which helps protect skin against the blue light that is emitted by electronic devices such as your phone and computer! Frankincense helps the skin be resilient and provides a soothing effect. A complex made from Meadowfoam Seed increases hydration levels, resulting in a more even skin texture. I’ve been using this product for about 3 months now and I’m a big fan! As I mentioned, I love multi-functioning products! The fact that this is a sunscreen and SPF that protects my skin from UVA/UVB light, allows my Vitamin C and other skincare ingredients to do their job fully, protects against blue light from electronics AND is a makeup primer - that’s definitely a win in my book! The texture of Unseen Sunscreen was a bit surprising - it is more of an ointment texture - at least that’s what it reminded me of! But it goes on so incredibly smoothly! It’s so weightess that you can barely feel it going on your skin and you absolutely can’t feel it once you’ve applied it. It has absolutely no scent. If it weren’t for the slight glow that it gives off, you wouldn’t even know it’s there! The price for Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 is $32 for 1.7oz (or $16 for 0.5 oz) which is completely reasonable in and of itself. Once you consider, however, that you’re getting a sunscreen/SPF AND makeup primer in one product and you don’t need to buy a second product for a makeup product, you really can’t beat this price! As far as I”m concerned, run - don’t walk - to grab some Unseen Sunscreen from Supergoop! Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40

❄️ Winter Skin Care Tips
Winter is a tuff time on our skin. I suffer from roseca, eczema and in winter months my skin tends to be super dry. Here are some tips that I use to keep my skin hydrated and healthy during these months. Winter Skin Care Tips~ Sunscreen- Even though it’s not summer you still need sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful uv rays. If your looking for a good sunscreen I recommend Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Humidifier~ The rising thermostat indoors causes dry air that sucks the moisture right out of your body. My. dermatologist recommended that I Use A humidifier in my bedroom in, to help keep my skin hydrated. I keep my humidifier on my bed side table aimed towards my face as I sleep. It has really help keep my skin hydrated all year long especially in the cold months. 🚨 Tip~ If you get a humidifier get one that you can add scent pads too. You can get vics vapor rub scent pads that help with your sinus or essential oil pads. You can get a Humidifier can Off amazon starting. at $19.99 Drink Up~ We tend to loose moisture more often during the winter months. In the summer I’m super active and I drink on a minimum of 4-5 bottles of water. In the winter months I’m just not as thirsty and find I find my myself drinking less. I use crystal light lemonade packs in my water. Limit Shower Time~ It may be tempting to take a long, steamy shower, but your skin will be much better served with a 5- to 10-minute lukewarm shower (or bath), as the AAD suggests. Hot water dries out your skin by stripping it of its natural oils. Blot your skin dry and apply a thick moisturizer within a few minutes after bathing to seal the water into the skin. This is the one Tip that is hard for me to follow. I Love a hot shower after being out in the cold. Dress Smart~ when heading outside, Make sure you bundle up and Protect your skin from the elements by wearing gear like scarfs, hats and gloves. Avoid materials that might irritate the skin. If you feel itchy under your favorite wool sweater wear a thin, breathable shirt underneath, or switch to a different material like fleece. Modify Your Skin Care Rountine~The key to having healthy and glowing winter skin is using mild skin care products. Choose cleansers that contain moisturizers to avoid stripping your skin of its natural moisture barrier. I use a cream-based cleansers, and apply toners and astringents sparingly during the winter, if at all. Many astringents contain alcohol, which can further dry your skin. When your skin is dry and itchy, the AAD recommends you stop using products that contain alcohol and fragrances in order to help skin retain its natural oils. At night, use a richer moisturizer on your face. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40

✔️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.

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

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
