Skincare solutions for stressed-out skin
There is a tonne of reasons that your skin becomes ‘stressed’ - dehydration, exposure to UV, harmful pollutants, free radicals... When your cortisol levels are too high, it does more than throw your metabolism out of whack and induce insatiable sugar cravings. It also wreaks havoc with your skin. Stripping it back to basics, the simplest things you can do to keep your skin happy are sleep, exercise and relax, what else can you do? Sometimes, products can begin to irritate your skin during a time of extreme stress, so bringing your routine back to basics and eliminating any products with excess fragrance, colors or dyes, letting your complexion breathe without foundation for at least 6 to 8 hours a day. It’s a good time to give your skin a little break. I actually don’t have a major skin concern, and I just feeling like my skin is not as good as it could be at this time. Sometimes it gets sensitive and dull. I don’t want to use anything too harsh that would irritate or dry out my skin further at this time. I typically pairing my routine way back and adding simple, hard-working solutions. (Eliminate any products that may cause irritation.) I'd add an emollient moisturizer into my lineup. CeraVe is always my first choice, it’s not going to be too heavy or rich, it just bring back the barrier protection of my skin. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin I also use retinol products as I menstioned before, retinol increases the rate of cell turnover in the skin, making it great for a variety of concerns. If you got Dull skin like me, here I highly recommend SkinCeuticals’ C E Ferulic 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum FAST FACTS: ● BEST FOR: Dry, normal, and sensitive skin ● USES: Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightens complexion, reduces free radical damage ● POTENTIAL ALLERGENS: Ascorbic acid, propylene glycol, triethanolamine ● ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: 15% L-ascorbic acid, 1% alpha-tocopherol, 0.5% ferulic acid ● PRICE: $166 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ This is quite simply an amazing serum. I don't understand the fuss about the smell (heavy artificial fragrances are much worse in my opinion). The liquid definitely had a slight scent, but it wasn’t unpleasant, and it dissipates quickly. I patted the product into my skin. At first it left a tackiness behind, but after a minute or two it was completely absorbed. C E Ferulic is gentle and I had no issues applying it every morning. It gives me an underlying glow that gets better and better with time. So many Dermatologists trust *and* recommend this, for the simple reason that it works. It does what it claims. There is a ton of scientific research and data behind this product that you could find online. I can’t stress enough how much I love this product. By using period, my skin was visibly smoother, plumper, and brighter. This is a game changer for me.. Now if only it was a tad cheaper! 😬

Battle of the Creams: Cerave v. First Aid Beauty
I used Cerave Moisturizing Cream at night for the past 3 years, but in March, I got sucked into skincare Youtube and felt like I needed to upgrade what I thought was a boring insufficient routine 😅 I heard such good things about the FAB Ultra Repair Cream, and bought a travel size. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration Texture: the texture is quite whipped. The product feels a bit heavy on the skin at first, but dries down quickly to a matte finish. Scent: this product does not contain synthetic fragrance, but it does contain eucalyptus oil. To me, the product smells like milk and eucalyptus. Application: the travel size (2 oz) comes in a squeeze tube, as does the 8 oz. The other sizes come in tubs. Results: For ~3 months, I used the FAB day and night as my moisturizer. At night, I would mix it with 2-3 drops of squalane oil. At first, my skin loved it! Unlike many of the other daytime moisturizers I tried, FAB kept my skin hydrated all day and I wouldn’t be peeling or flaking on the parts of my skin that are dry. I liked it so much that after I ran out of the 2oz, I spent $42 on the 8oz tube in the photo. But I started to get small, uniform itchy bumps on my cheeks—which was unusual because I rarely break out there. I saw my dermatologist, who confirmed that it was fungal acne ☹️ To be honest, I’m not sure if it was the squalane oil I was using or the FAB that was causing this, but after reading other reviews that claimed FAB caused fungal acne, I suspect it was the FAB that did it for me. Plus I have used the Cerave with squalane, and didn’t experience fungal acne from that. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin Texture: this product is a heavy cream, but it is tacky rather than greasy. It sinks nicely into the skin and has a slightly shiny, glazed donut finish. To me, it feels too heavy to use during the day, but I like that feel for nighttime. Scent: this product is scentless and doesn’t have any synthetic fragrance or fragrant oils. Application: the full-size version of this product comes in a tub, but you can buy one with the pump or without. I prefer the pump so I don’t have to dip my fingers in the tub (even though it is safe to do so thanks to preservatives 🙂). Results: I have used this cream for 3 years and have never had any irritation or acne from this product. I have tried mixing serums and squalane into this, and they mix nicely without pilling. I will say that everyone’s skin is different—I am combo/acne prone, my bf has dry skin and Cerave stings his skin. So as always, you may want to buy a small size and patch test. Price-wise, Cerave is much cheaper at $15 for 12oz. 🚨 Overall thoughts: What I learned was the same thing @lilyclintonand @veedimsaid in lily’s review of Cerave vs FAB (go read! I was like, “YES, THANK YOU!” 😂): more expensive doesn’t always mean it’s a better product!

I hate my skin ‼- 2 months into skin journey 👉
I hate taking photos of my skin, especially bare faced. I am currently feeling insecure about posting this photo. but in a moment of strength here I am. bare faced on the internet. omg 😬😬 I have always had some kind of breakout but since March 2020. it has progressively got worse. While Sydney was in lockdown from March to June I promised myself that once the quarantine lifted I would take my skin care seriously. immediately made an appointment with Laser Clinic Australia and started a 6 month course of microdermabrasion and enzyme peels. I took this photo today- which is 1 week since I got my first enzyme peel. like most of you I have been trying product after product and despite my seemingly clear forehead, I am still incredibly insecure about my skin and the lack of a quick fix. The products I have been using religiously for the last 3 months are: CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin this cream is incredibly thick, I have dehydrated skin and surface acne so for the week after a peel and/or microdermabrasion session my skin cannot handle any active ingredients except for hylauronic acid. this has saved my skin and has shrunk my downtown from a week of peeling to 1 day to no peeling. skinstitut - Rejuvenate 15 Serum I use this in the morning, just a pea sized amount to wake up and brighten my skin. with winter almost over, by skin is becoming less dry in the morning from the heater and cold weather but I will continue to use this over the summer just need to remember to wear a lot more SPF before any sun exposure skinstitut - Retinol Serum hands down. the best retinol I have tried. I am wearing this only a night and put it on before the Cera Ve cream. again only a pea sized amount. skinstitut - Glycolic Cleanser 12% the strongest cleanser I have used. this can't be stressed more. only use this once per week. the bottle says 2-3 times a week but I would really suggest speaking with a skincare professional to diagnose your skin before using regularly. If I don't immediately put moisture back on my skin through the products above, my skin dries out a lot. but it removes so much dead skin that once I dehydrate my skin, I get a glowly smooth complexion 😊💕 my skin is not perfect, and I am not expecting perfection. I just want to feel more comfortable in my skin. So hopefully there are a few people on here that can relate, and if you have been here and are now on the other side of accepting your skin and recovering from acne, would love to chat! 🌸

How To Grow Strong Healthy Long Nails!
How to grow strong, healthy, natural nails! Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! This week I felt inspired to share how I learned to get my nails to grow longer and stronger. It’s relatively easy if you are dedicated and are willing to take a few extra steps. Here’s a little background on my nail story. I never bit my nails (only because the thought of the amount of germs and bacteria that live on our hands just grossed me out) or picked at my cuticles. What I noticed that significantly damaged my nails was when I got fake nails (obviously). They completely destroyed my nail beds. They were painful, soft, brittle, peeled, you name it! So I stopped and gave my nails time to breathe. Then I discovered gel and how convenient it was. But again the constant nail buffing damaged my nails causing them to dry out and peel. So I decided to track back to regular nail polish thinking it would solve all my problems but no! My nails continues to break and peel. I later realized that I wasn’t going to the best nail salons. Sure they were quick and inexpensive but they didn’t use the best products and techniques to maintain nail health. So I started doing my own manicures and learned from trial and error how to get my nails to where they are today. So first thing I’d like to recommend (professional nail tech please don’t come for me) is to stop ALL forms of buffing to the nail bed. I noticed once that stopped my nails got thicker and had less noticeable lines and ridges. Next I bought a better top coat. For the last two years I’ve been using the nailtiques brand. They have different formulas for different needs and they worked pretty good to protect my nails. I don’t recommend buying it on amazon they’re extremely over priced there. nailtiques - Nail Protein Formula 2 Plus ***This is very important: when changing your nail color be aware of the nail polish remover that you use! Most nail polish removers are very abrasive and skin the natural oils of you nails so make sure to wash your hand thoroughly after you finish. Make sure to apply hand lotion after to moisturize your nails again. Don’t apply your nail polish right away give your nails enough time to absorb the lotion. I noticed the EXTREME change this step did in improving my nails. Whenever I went to the salon they never washed my nails thorough to get rid of all the acetone and just applied polish right on top causing my nails to get chemically damaged and turn yellow.*** I also don’t wear nail polish every week. I like to give my nails a break every month and skip color for one or two weeks so my nails can breath. On the days my nails are bare I notice they can get dry so a good hand cream is a must. Our nails are very porous so just like our hands they go through the day to day environmental battles that can take their toll in the long run. So on the days you don’t wear nail polish make sure to keep your nails and hand hydrated. I use Cerave. Personally it’s the best body lotion that doesn’t irritate my skin on the market. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin Next I know we all heard biotin is great for hair skin and nails but I would always always always break out. In my opinion it wasn’t worth the hassle of having bad skin just for my nails to grow quicker. That is until I discovered Neocell Biotin Bursts on amazon. They’re small chewy vitamins that taste like açaí berries packed with 10,000mcg of biotin. Now anything over 1,000 mcg of biotin broke me out and this guy does not! So if you always wanted to add biotin to your dietary intake but couldn’t because it broke you out I really recommend this product. I noticed my nails grow quicker and stronger since I started taking the vitamins. Another great vitamin that you can add to your diet is Omega 3 fatty acids. I read that it can aid in moisturizing the nails and helps combat dryness and brittleness. Okay and finally I left the less fun part for the very end...changing your bad habits. This includes biting your nails and picking at your cuticles. Using your nails as tools which includes picking and scraping at things. Having a bad diet and not drinking enough water. Exposing your hands to chemicals. All these can significantly make your nails weaken and brittle your nails. It may be a bit challenging at first but it’s worth it in the end! I hope this post brought some value to your nail growth journey! Let me know what think! Also if you feel like you have anything to add so we can all learn something to help us grow our nail drop a comment below!

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA fades scars
About a year ago I banged my ankle on one of those stupid bird scooter things and it immediately swelled up and bruised in the worst possible way. I think it took a full 6 months before it stopped hurting and the bruising went down but a year later I still had what I would describe as a bruise shadow. I don't know if there's a technical term for it, but its a noticeable dark spot that just would not go away. Anyway, earlier this year I accidentally bought some Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA from the Ordinary because it had been shelved wrong at Ulta. I tried it on my face and within a month it had evened out my freckles which always come out in full force in the summer. I was actually blown away at how well it worked on my face I decided to try it on a few dark spots on my legs, including this bruise. The only skin I'm really self conscious about besides my face is my lower legs. Over the years I've hacked them to sh*t hiking, climbing, running, and doing crazy outdoor stuff so my legs are covered in spots and scars. Since I was done using the AA 2% + HA on my face I figured why not try it on my legs. Within a month of spotty use I feel like I'm actually seeing the bruise shadow fade! I never really considered using TO stuff on other spots on my body, but because it's so inexpensive I really don't feel bad experimenting with it and I'm pretty stoked that it seems to be working. Might be worth a shot if you struggle with spots elsewhere on your body as well. Full routine out of the shower daily: 1. The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA one drop on each spot on my legs, rub in and wait for it to dry. 2. DERMELECT - Runway Ready Luxury Foot Treatment on my feet and ankles Love this.... makes my feet look post-pedi every day! Also fragrance free! 3. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin on my legs all the way up to my waist. 4. PALMER'S - Cocoa Butter Formula Oil With Vitamin E over the CeraVe. Another game changer, I feel like it gives my legs a little glow without being in the sun.

Skin Restoration Costs Less Than $50!😮😮😮
I have sensitive skin. My face gets irritated easily. My friends recommended the following products to me. And my expectations are: restoration, redness reduction, and moisturizing. CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin and CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin The CeraVe Moisturizing Cream has a thick and heavy consistency and contains mineral oil. However, since I'm allergic to mineral oil, I gave up on using it and I didn't take a pic of it.👎👎 What I love about the CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion the most is that it focuses on three essential ceramides 1, 3, and 6-II. I just wish that the concentration of ceramides was higher. Also, a drawback is that it contains preservatives. I use this moisturizing lotion to treat redness and peeling of my skin after using retinol and to treat the small red spots I get after cleansing my face. I always apply a thick layer but it has a limited moisturizing effect. It is easily absorbed but tingles a bit. After using it for three days straight, the redness of my skin redness was slightly reduced but a couple of bumps could still be seen.👍👍 ISDIN Skin Repair Nutratopic Facial Cream is still my favorite skin repair cream. Results can be seen immediately after applying it and small red dots from cleansing are soothed within just a day. It is also scent-free like the CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion, and it has a great ability to repair skin.👍👍 Summary: This ISDIN Facial Cream has a stronger moisturizing and restoration effect and it's safer to use, but the CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion is cheaper. They both irritate the skin a little. If you want a cheaper facial repair cream and you don't mind preservatives, you can consider the CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Have you used any of these products? What do you think! If you have other great products for restoration, comment here👇👇
