Skincare advice from my derm
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in over ten years of dealing with acne, it’s that sometimes, over the counter products just aren’t enough. Frustratingly, the healthcare system in the US makes dermatologist visits and prescription meds very expensive. That’s why I want to share some of the advice I’ve gotten from my dermatologist. While I do use several prescription medicines to treat my acne, the tips and tricks I’ve gotten from my derm are useful for anyone dealing with the same issues as me (hormonal acne, as well as the texture and hyperpigmentation left behind). For reference, my skin is not sensitive—not sure if I was born that way or if I’ve built up a tolerance to harsh products over the years. I use a telemedicine service called Apostrophe, and before that, I used Curology. You fill out a questionnaire on your medical history and skin concerns, upload pictures of your skin, and a dermatologist reviews the information and creates a treatment plan for you. I have a whole post on why I switched from Curology to Apostrophe, but the short answer is that Apostrophe prescribes more oral medications and I wanted to try that route. I’ve had an excellent experience with both companies in terms of the detailed advice I’ve gotten from my providers. So let’s get into it! Here are some things my dermatologists have told me: Don’t pick at your skin... seriously. One of the best tips I got was to use hydrocolloid patches on acne with a head: not only does it help the bump go down way quicker, it keeps me from picking at it any further. I LOVE the COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch and I never go without them. Look at your diet. My derm says she gives this advice to ALL her patients: limit sugar, processed carbohydrates, and dairy. She says food is not generally the main cause of acne, but it can certainly aggravate it. She also always recommends increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables. Use sun protection—it helps dark spots fade faster, and of course prevents wrinkles. My derm recommends wearing SPF 30 or higher, as well as a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors. Along with my prescription cream, which includes niacinamide and tretinoin, my derm recommends the following products: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo Dual Acne Treatment, LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel, LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser,CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin,Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30, CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream These tips and the prescription meds I received from Apostrophe, have made my face clearer than it’s been in YEARS. I’m thrilled with my progress (the before/after photos have about 90 days between them). I’m running out of space, but feel free to ask any questions in the comments! #CheriePartner

A healthy skin barrier can solve your problems🌱
A healthy skin barrier can solve your skin problems! 🌱 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐛𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐫? It is the outermost layer of the epidermis - stratum corneum - which functions as both a chemical and physical shield against pollutants, bacteria, irritants, etc.. A healthy skin barrier can slow down aging and even help acne heal quicker while lessening its severity. When the barrier is intact, your skin appears plump, and smooth, but when it’s compromised, skin becomes dehydrated, dull, and more prone to sun damage and irritation. Sensitivity to products, tendency to break out, acne and chronic dry skin are all signs of a weakened skin barrier. Your barrier’s health has a direct impact on how your skin looks, feels, and how it ages! 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐟𝐞𝐰 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐩 𝐝𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠: 1. Over-cleansing 2. Over-exfoliating 3. Washing your face using hot water 4. Using alcohol-based toner and fragrance-containing products 5. Unprotected exposure to sun’s UV rays 𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞’𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐝𝐨: ~ Hydrate continuously! A damaged epidermis requires moisture, so keeping your face and body well hydrated is critical in the fight to restore your barrier. Moisture-binding humectants such as glycerin, sorbitol, and hyaluronic acid are my favorites. ~ 𝐔𝐬𝐞 𝐨𝐜𝐜𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐬! An occlusive ingredient provides a protective seal over the surface of the skin and is critical to prevent loss of hydration. When choosing a face moisturizer, I always look for Dimethicone. If you have dry skin, choose a moisturizer with shea butter. For extra dry skin in the body, petrolatum will be your best friend. If you want something lighter than petrolatum, go for silicone based lotions. 𝐌𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐛𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: dimethicone, glycerin, ceramides, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, panthenol, oat and aloe extract. 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬: p.s all fragrance-free 𝐎𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧: 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫𝐬 - ceramides, niacinamide, dimethicone, HA. affordable and effective. 𝐍𝐞𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐚 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐨𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐆𝐞𝐥 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 - dimethicone based. Basic, lightweight, but does a great job. 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐫𝐨𝐬𝐚𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐠𝐞𝐥 - my top recommendation for oily and sensitive skin. Wonderful for people with rosacea. Calms, hydrates, and protects skin with dimethicone, aloe extract and licorice root. 𝐃𝐫𝐲 𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐧: 𝐄𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞 𝐇𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐒𝐨𝐨𝐧 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 - has panthenol and shea butter. Pretty no-nonsense. Although it has shea butter, I find this actually lightweight enough for oily skin. 𝐋𝐚 𝐑𝐨𝐜𝐡𝐞 𝐏𝐨𝐬𝐚𝐲 𝐂𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐁𝐚𝐮𝐦𝐞 - multi-purpose soothing balm for dry skin irritations. Has glycerin, shea butter, panthenol. 𝐃𝐫𝐮𝐧𝐤 𝐄𝐥𝐞𝐩𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐢 - Glycerin based and combines signal peptides and amino acids. Has a long ingredients list, but overall still worked well with me. 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐱 𝐔𝐥𝐭𝐫𝐚 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 - contains Riceramide®-3 blend of plant-based ceramides, natural essential fatty acids and cholesterol, combined with soothing emollients and hyaluronic acid to help relieve chronically dry skin. ❣️𝐏𝐲𝐮𝐧𝐠𝐤𝐚𝐧𝐠 𝐘𝐮𝐥 is a fragrance-free brand and uses a variety of root extracts and gentle ingredients to promote barrier restoration. I highly recommend the brand too! 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚 𝐝𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧: Vaseline, Aquaphor or 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 (lanolin-free) 𝐁𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐋𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: 𝐀𝐯𝐞𝐞𝐧𝐨 𝐃𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐁𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐋𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧- formulated with soothing oatmeal and rich emollients.

CeraVe Favorites for Oily/Acne Prone Skin!
Hi all! Wanted to post more in depth about these particular CeraVe products I’ve been using lately. CeraVe is known for being affordable, but nevertheless, super effective — and I can definitely attest to that! Here’s what I’ve been using to tackle my oiliness and replenish my skin while using (strong) treatments. CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin If you’re a shiny and porey mess like me, I highly recommend this extremely versatile and affordable cleanser by CeraVe! Through research and experience, you may have found that using a gentler cleanser, free of exfoliating actives, might be a better choice when starting your routine — even if you struggle with acne. This is because your cleansing step should focus on getting, well... clean! I highly recommend using a gentler cleanser because you can save your actives for your treatment step, and have a nice, nutrient-packed, base to layer those on. This cleanser is formulated with non-irritating, hydrating, and reparative ingredients (Ceramides/Hyaluronic Acid) as well as, my favorite, Niacinamide! Niacinamide is an absolute MUST if you struggle with oiliness and the best part is, you can actually feel and see a difference. I swear, even my giant pores look smaller. I use this cleanser every morning and every night (as part my double cleanse), and it has not only helped with the shine, but it feels hydrating and gentle, and super clean! Also want to note, the bottle says “foaming” on it, and while it may suds up the tiniest bit, don’t worry! It’s not drying AT ALL like a lot of foam cleansers, and honestly, it actually feels and looks like a gel cleanser for the most part. CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream When you struggle with oiliness and acne, you probably like to pack in a lot of actives in your routine such as BHAs, AHAs, and Retinol — I mean, I definitely do, especially during a breakout. If I go a little overboard, my skin can feel a little dehydrated. I’ve found this is actually really common with my fellow oily friends and sometimes we may mistake dry skin with dehydrated skin, and there’s a difference! Dry skin is a skin TYPE, and dehydrated skin is most likely a temporary state it’s in due to what we’re putting on our face. If you find yourself feeling dehydrated, I recommend this wonderful CeraVe Renewing Night Cream! Oily friends — you might freak out when you first touch it because it is definitely THICK and occlusive. HOWEVER, in my opinion, this cream is not greasy, and that’s super important! It’s packed with Ceramides and Peptides that are incredible for repairing any damage or irritation your actives may have caused, and personally, it doesn’t add any more pimples! I use this about once or twice a week at night in replace of my oil-free moisturizer to take care of my skin barrier, and I wake up feeling so hydrated, fixed, and smooth (and pimple-less, yay).
CeraVe-Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin
Great Night Cream for Dry Skin
I’d been on the hunt for a hydrating drugstore night cream now that Autumn is on its way. Being in southwestern Ontario the temperatures — while still not cold — have started to drop and I’m just getting ready for the cold weather to start. In saying that, as of right now my skin type is mostly normal. However, during the cooler months I get dry areas and want to keep them at bay, hence the hunt for a hydrating night cream. This is what I decided on: CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream I’m a big fan of the CeraVe cleanser I have so I thought I’d give their cream a try too. This cream claims to “help soften and renew the look of tired skin overnight”. Who doesn’t want that?! It Contains: ✨ Biomimetic peptides + “Designed to work with your natural circadian rhythm when your skin is most receptive. Biomimetic peptides work together to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and support skin elasticity” ✨ Niacinamide + “Helping to support the production of ceramides and lipids, essential for restoring moisture to the skin. Mah reduce redness due to dry skin” ✨ Ceramides + “Essential lipids found in the skin’s surface. Helps replenish the skin’s natural lipids to improve its ability to retain moisture” ✨ Hyaluronic acid + “A natural component of the skin that attracts moisture to improve skin hydration and helps smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles” My Thoughts: So far I’ve been enjoying this night cream. I don’t use it every night as my skin isn’t overly dry at the moment. I more so got it to use in the fall and winter. However, I love how thick this cream is. It does feel really hydrating. When it goes on it feels somewhat “greasy” but I think that may be due to the glycerin this cream contains (it’s listed as the second ingredient). Note: I may be making that up lol. I have no idea but the cream IS on the thicker side and I like that. This alone makes it great for anyone with dry skin or, like me, get dry patches in the cooler months. This cream is also non-irritating, non-comedogenic, and fragrance-free. This makes it perfect for those with sensitive skin :) While this jar only contains 1.7 oz./48 g, the smallest amount is needed so this will last for a while. It applies easily and makes your skin look nice and fresh (perfect for going to sleep? Hahaha). 100% recommend if you have dry skin or want a thicker night cream for the cooler months like I do.

Sensitive - Combo Face Routine
I’ve posted about many of these products individually, but I thought I’d share how I combine them in my relatively simple routine. For reference, my skin is very finnicky (eczema-prone, acne-prone, and very reactive). ~ 3rd pic is post-morning routine having used the glycolic cream the night before ~ 🌤SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel Hydrating Gel With Hyaluronic Acid The only reason for the docked star, is the prohibitive price. My mom got this for me as a gift when my skin was freaking out. It’s a fantastic hydrating serum that is thick and soothing! I apply after a thorough rinse to damp skin. When I run out, I’ll replace this either with Maelove’s hydrating serum (as the ingredients are similar) or I may try out their popular Glow Maker serum! 🌤DESERT ESSENCE - Organic Jojoba Oil Pat on 3 drops of jojoba oil then use my roller around my eyes and brow bone. 🌤KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 Smooth an even layer for extra moisture and sun protection. The initial shine will dry down and give a nice non-greasy glow. +++ 🌙ACURE - Seriously Soothing Cleansing Cream Massage this in for 30 sec - 1 min, focusing on the T zone and where I’m wearing makeup 🌙CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream (repairing) OR MAELOVE - Night Renewer (exfoliating) with DESERT ESSENCE - Organic Jojoba Oil I dot one of the creams around my face, add a few drops of oil and blend together. You can also “lock in” your moisturizer by patting the oil on top, but since these creams are a bit heavier, I like to mix them so everything has a chance to absorb. 🌤🌙Vaseline - Lip Therapy, Advanced Healing Skin Protectant I use this all the time- only wish is it came in the cocoa butter formula! I may try out one of the tins.. but seriously- no chapped lips in the 2 years I’ve been using this! I’d love to hear questions/comments/feedback :)
Vaseline- Lip Therapy, Advanced Healing Skin Protectant
An amazing affordable cream!
a.My skin type is combination, often with hormonal acne during parts of the month. I generally have pretty balanced skin! b.This product is meant to be a deeply hydrating night renewal cream, with ingredients that slowly release over time to provide continuous benefits throughout the night. This is meant for any skin types since it’s hydrating but doesn’t cause congestion in the pores. c.I love this cream and its texture so so much! I originally purchased it because I heard it was a dupe for the more expensive Summer Fridays Jet Lag mask. The ingredient list isn’t exactly the same BUT there are similar hydrating ingredients as well as niacinamide to provide a gentle brightening/soothing effect. the packaging is simple, just like the rest of the Cerave line, nothing special to really call out there. d.I love to use this product immediately after exfoliating in the nighttime, because it is so great at locking in moisture and soothing any irritation that might occur. After applying this cream, I usually follow with a lighter oil so that I don’t overload my skin. Honestly, this cream would be perfect for the mornings too if you tend to have more dry skin and want a glowy base for makeup! e.I would definitely recommend this product to anyone! The price point, the effectiveness, and the fact that it’s got great ingredients make me want to give this product 5/5 stars!CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream #cheriecreator
