Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin
What It IsDeveloped with dermatologists, CeraVe Travel Size Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin is a unique formula that cleanses, hydrates and helps restore the protective skin barrier with three essential ceramides (1, 3, 6-II).
Week 1 of Barrier Repair
All through winter (New Zealand) I experienced dry, tight, flaky, red, sensitive, reactive, itchy and eczema prone skin. What a mouthful! Then thank you to an ad on instagram I came across this app, and I learnt sooooo much about my skin. I spent endless hours (when I could with a toddler) going through post after post on this app, taking notes, saving products and doing my own research. I realised I had compromised my skin barrier with endless products and a steroid cream prescribed by my doctor for my eczema (eek I know). I culled my whole routine as nothing I was using was working for me and purchased the basics, mind you I had to wait a while for some products to come from overseas as they are not available here (and some I couldn’t get a hold of at all so had to find similar products). My routine in Week 1: AM CLEANSE: splashed my face with water TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 right now I am unsure as to how effective this is, my skin feels supple and soft but for any long term benefits I will have to wait and see. MOISTURISER: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream with it only being week one, I haven’t seen anything dramatic happen yet SUNSCREEN: PAULA'S CHOICE - Calm Mineral Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I am still unsure about this as it leaves me with a white case initially but that fades after five or so minutes. PM CLEANSE: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin so far this has been amazing, doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight. Feels really hydrating. I massage it in for about 1min before rinsing. TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream MOISTURISER: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA I was finding that this was just not hydrating enough for my skin and left me tight, and I needed to reapply a few hours later as I headed to bed. But still waking up quite dry in the morning. After a few days I realised I probably wasnt getting my sunscreen off properly and decided to add in a step in the PM. PRE-CLEANSE: BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Purifying I had this for removing makeup, a purchase I made on the whim about a year ago as I hated using wipes etc. I only realised after adding this step back in that this was making me reactive and I would wake up itchy with what looked like hives around my eyes/cheek. I culled both products (luckily I only purchased the 30ml of the NMF cream so I had pretty much used it up) and did some more research. See Week 2 of Barrier Repair for more...

The Most Gentle Cleanser Ever 🕺🏼
Cerave Hydrating Cleanser is the most gentle face wash for normal to dry sensitive skin ever! The formula is white, light, creamy, and scent-free. It does a great job cleaning oil and removes dirt out of pores, without stripping the skin of moisture. Ingredients: Ceramides (moisturizer), hyaluronic behentrimonium methosulfate and cetyl alcohol (cleansers) This is my everyday face cleanser in the AM time since I started using it about 2 months ago. I love the consistency and how it makes my skin feel than when I have used other foaming face cleansers. They usually make my skin dry out and it can be too rough on my face. Cerave is gentle on my skin and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I noticed a positive difference in how clear my skin was after I started using the product. My skin is clean and strong. Price: $10.98 / 12 oz Thanks to Cerave! 💕CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin I definitely recommend. 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Week 4 of Tretinoin and Spirinolactone Journey
This is the end of my fourth week going on Spirinolactone (pills for hormonal acne that I take 1x a day) and Tretinoin. This first half is a repeat of last week’s post, though I have made some slight updates to my routine. The new info will be right below my posted routine. I purchased both treatments from Apostrophe, so they have been prescribed by a dermatologist. My Apostrophe cream formula is 0.025% Tretinoin and 4% Niacinimide. I’ve simplified my routine to only include an oil cleanser, a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, the tret cream, a sunscreen, and an occlusive . I have normal skin. I’m looking to add more in as I adjust to treatment. My routine is as follows: AM CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 PM DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (on non-tret nights) CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Apostrophe formula (using this after moisturizer so I can have a buffer between the tret and my skin) CeraVe - Healing Ointment So I added snail mucin and a hydrating toner as part of my regular routine. I’m now switching to everyday use of tret, so I want to keep my moisture barrier intact as my usage increases. I’m using snail mucin in the mornings, and am considering using it at night along with tret. Is the snail mucin 2x a day even better it is it just overkill? I’m also using the Cerave healing ointment as an occlusive to seal in hydration and moisture as the last step of my routine. I’m definitely in the purging period. I’m seeing a lot of pustules and closed comedones show up. Super excited, because this is showing me that Tret is actually working and speeding up my cell turnover. I’m am concerned about the Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) and the Post-Inflammatory Erythema (PIE) that will be left over after my acne subsides. Are there any products that for sure get rid of PIH/PIE. If you know of any, comment down below!

A comparison between probably most famous affordable cleansers by cerave I will touch on 4 features: ingredients, texture, performance & user experience. Promise to do my best to keep it short and sweet 🤭 Note: Foaming Cleanser - FC Hydrating Cleanser - HC ✍️Ingredients: As you already know, cerave uses basic ingredients they focus on protecting and/or restoring the skin barrier. FC - 3 types of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide (stellar ingredients), is soap & fragrance free. HC - of course ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), a Cerave patent Technology designed to release moisturising ingredients to the skin for 24hs (I did not feel that on this particular product). 🧖🏻♀️ Texture: FC - gel formula that turns into a foam when massaged into the skin, thick lather, ‘sticks’ to the skin; HC - creamy/watery texture, very lightweight, thin when applied onto the skin. I would say in comparison to FC this cleanser glides nicely, almost disappears when massaged onto the face. 🌟Performance: FC - designed for normal to oily skin, this cleanser is brilliant at removing minimal makeup, oiliness, spf & impurities. Forms a very thick lather when in contact with skin & water, therefore performance-wise, very effective. HC - In order to achieve same results as FC, I would need a few more pumps. That being said, it does not emulsifies as well. Bare in mind this is my personal experience. Designed for normal to dry skin. 💚Experience: FC - in terms of effectiveness and results, I would prefer FC over HC, however despite having Niacinamide (great at calming & healing) & hyaluronic acid (humectant), it does feel slightly drying, tight after rinsing and drying the skin with a towel. HC - not as effective as FC, however, it does not dry the skin at all. Brilliant for those days when skin is over-sensitised or for dry to very dry skin. Final thoughts: I really like both & I would recommend both cleansers. However, I think I would appreciate the FC more in summer, whereas HC is a good all year rounder to have in your stash. If I had to choose one, it would be the HC. Both products cost £9.00 & have 236ml📍

Hormonal Acne Journey (part 3)
Hello, lovelies! I am a day behind on posting and I am so sorry, but check out the difference in my skin! This is my second week using "Biologique Recherche" products and I am LOVING them! If this is the first post you have seen please go to my profile to get a full background on my journey and see my week to week progress! This is the clearest my skin has been in a YEAR. I am so thankful for these products. I am still using the same routine! IF I have worn makeup I will use the BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lait Vip O2 Oxygenating Milk Cleanser , which is a facial cleanser. I do NOT double cleanse with this item. I use the CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin to cleanse my face first and get all of my makeup off. Then I use the toner suggested for acne prone skin, "Biologique Recherche P50V 1970". (I cannot find a link to this product). After that I use the BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Serum Placenta , which has been a huge game changer in my scars and the rate my acne heals after I... pick at it 🥴😶. I follow that up with the BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Creme Placenta facial lotion. It has similar properties to the serum. I use all of these twice daily with the exception of the cleanser. I also used the facial mask again, but only once this week. swipe the picture to see me with BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - MASQUE VIVANT on my face! I seriously can't wait to see my results NEXT WEEK! 😱 Thank you all so much for following my journey! like I said please check out my previous posts for more details and progress pictures! I will update you all next week! I hope everyone has a blessed week! ❤ Be sure to check out my page for hair education as well! 😘 Instagrams: chey_bug hair.by.chey_ Tiktok: chey_bug97

Nighttime Daily Routine
I started this routine a few months ago and it has been working for my dry skin. I start with micellar water Simple - Kind to Skin Micellar Cleasing Water This helps remove makeup from my face before cleansing. It’s gentle and does not irritate my skin. Even when I don’t wear makeup I use it because of the tint in my sunscreen. Then I cleanse CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin I use this product and it does not dry out my skin at all, it takes a while to get used to the lotion texture of it. This cleanser does not remove makeup well for me and that’s also why I use the micellar water. Then Niacinamide The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I use this because it works well with the retinol and helps reduce irritation that can be caused by the retinol. I am interested in trying a different Niacinamide because I read the percentage in this is higher than necessary Then retinol VERSED - PRESS RESTART I got this retinol, because I heard it was great for beginners. After I finish with this I am looking to try something new. I started using it only 1x/week and slowly increased. I now use 5x/week Then moisturizer CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream I chose a cream over the lotion because it is thicker and is better for the dryer winter months. I used to wake up with dry skin on my forehead and around my lips, but since using this it has really helped! JOSIE MARAN - 100% Pure Argan Oil I started using this oil when my face my feeling extra dry, but have recently added it to my routine every night because I love the way it makes my face feel. I feel like my skin is glowing when I wake up in the morning. I love the consistency, it’s not thick or heavy. It is pricey, but totally worth it for dry skin in the winter. 2x/week I exfoliate The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA I use this AHA on the days that I don’t use the retinol. Retinol and AHAs should not be used together I read that it was a good option for dry skin.

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
