Winter Routine for DRY Skin
My cheeks have been SO dry lately. It’s been a struggle to keep my sensitive combo skin hydrated with the change in weather. I’ve thus made a couple swaps from my summer routine to keep my skin moisturized and not flakey. 🌬I swapped my trusty jojoba oil in the morning for a light application of Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream (I use about half the amount I use at night- just enough to get an even layer) 🌬I went back the old CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser from their new CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser . Although I like the new version better, I just need every scrap of hydration I can get right now. 🌬Lastly, I recently started applying a thin layer of Aquaphor - Aquaphor Healing Ointment over my cheeks at night (post on this coming soon!) In short, my routine is now: 🌤 rinse, hydrating toner, moisturizer, spf 🌙 double cleanse, moisturizer*, ointment as needed *I swap my Ceramidin for MAELOVE - Night Renewer 2x / week

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 3
Hey y’all! Today’s post is part 3 of 4 of my Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines series. In today’s post we’re covering @geralorentas and @robynkenner ! Starting with @geralorentas. She starts out by cleansing with theCeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser which costs $13 for 8 fl oz. This cleanser has super gentle exfoliating agents, as well as glycerin and Hylaronic acid which are very hydrating. Next she uses theRENÉE ROULEAU - Rapid Response Detox Toner which costs $41 for 6 fl oz. This toner, as far as toners go, is pretty good. Its main draws are Salicylic acid and Lactic acid which are great for dealing with acne. Next she uses theSKIN GRAMMAR - Super Good Repair Essence which costs $38 for 5.7 fl oz. This essence has Nicinamide and glycerin, as well as a ton of ceramides. Unfortunately it has orange peel oil. Citrus oils a extracts are extremely irritating to the skin because they are acidic, so I have to say no to this essence. Next she uses the RENÉE ROULEAU - Vitamin C&E Treatment which costs $69 for 1 fl oz. It has glycerin, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, but again it has citrus oils and extracts which make this another no for me. Then to moisturize she goes in with the#Dr. zenovia - Peptide + Ceramide Moisturizer[products]#[FourStars] which costs $79 for 1.7 fl oz. This moisturizer has ceramides and glycerin. Finally she goes in with theLA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Anti-shine Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF50+ which I couldn’t find the price for. It’s a really good basic sunscreen. So that’s @geralorentas routine. For her I would recommend getting rid of the essence and the treatment, but otherwise the products seem great! Moving on to @robynkenner. She starts with a double cleanse, and we’ll talk in a minute about what she’s doing wrong. She starts with the The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser which costs $7.90 for 1 fl oz. The main ingredients in this are squalane and glycerin. A lot of people complain that this cleanser is so gentle is barely cleans, but it seems to work for @robynkenner. Then she uses theMurad - Clarifying Cleanser which costs $32 for 6.75 fl oz. The main draw for this product is Salicylic acid, but again it’s a no because of citrus oils and extracts as well as fragrance. Now I mentioned that she’s double cleansing wrong. Double cleansing isn’t just using 2 cleansers, it’s specifically using an oil based cleanser and then a water based cleanser. (Check out my post on double cleansing for more information) In this case, @robynkenner is using 2 water based cleansers which can be stripping to the skin, and isn’t considered double cleansing. She mentioned she started doing this because her skin didn’t feel clean with just the first cleanse, and I think this might be because the Squalane Cleanser is too gentle. Next she uses theNeutrogena - Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream which costs $25 for .5 fl oz. First off, eye cream should be at the end of a routine. The eye cream itself is great though. Next she usesThe Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution which costs $8.70 for 8 fl oz. I talked about this product in pt. 1, but in short it’s really good. And finally she uses the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream which costs $36 for 6 fl oz. This is a nice super thick basic moisturizer. So in conclusion @robynkenner, I’d try to find a new cleanser, then just add your eye cream after moisturizer instead of early in the routine. That’s all for pt. 3! Please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment below your favorite cleansers to help out @robynkenner, and follow me to join the family and for similar content. -Mae
LA ROCHE-POSAY -Anthelios XL Anti-shine Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF50+
I feel my skin has its moments where it’s getting better and when it reacts to whatever. This past week has been a little stressful so it explains the active breakouts. I do feel my period is coming within the next week, so that’s another explanation for my flare up. I have even experiencing dryness more so this week, but weather has been a lot colder! Been on spironolactone for a little over a month now and I do see less active breakouts. I do see less redness in my skin overall and some dark sport fading. My routine has not changed. I switch between 3 cleansers CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I have been using this one more because my skin has been drier than normal. I really enjoy it! PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength Moisturizer: Krave - Great Barrier Relief I love this! Use it before my moisturizer! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream NATURIUM - Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5% I’ve been trying to use this again because my skin has been so dry as an extra layer or hydration. CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 0.0025% tretinoin I use it twice a week right now vs three times a week 100 mg of Spironolactone; I take it morning and night.

TOP 5 Skincare Products of 2020
Hey Babes! This is my first post on Cherie! As 2020 comes to an end, I would like to share with you all my favorite skin care products of the year. These products have been my holy grail and have transformed my skin!! 1. Cera Ve Hydrating Cleanser -The best cleanser I have ever EVER used! I have super dry skin and this cleanser is soo hydrating for my skin. I love how it doesn’t foam and it is very gentle to my skin. 2. Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Toner - I have only used this toner for a portion of the year but this is by far the best toner I’ve used. I know many people are scared to use toners because they can be drying to the skin. This toner does not dry your skin at all. It is hydrating and contains Hyaluronic acid which boosts moisture into your skin! It has really helped improved my overall skin tone. 3. Niacinamide Acid - One of the best products from The Ordinary!! Period! This serum has helped me get rid of hyperpigmentation and acne bumps on my forehead. This serum leaves your skin with an instant glow and brighter skin. 4. Nolaskinsentials Hydra Face Cream - This moisturizer smells heavenly! It smells so good and it’s also very hydrating. The moisturizer is very lightweight and does not feel heavy on the face. 5. Black Girl Sunscreen - This sunscreen is black owned!! I love this one in particular because it does not leave any white cast. It’s super hard to find good sunscreen for dark skin and this one is perfect for my skin. Sunscreen is super important! It prevents hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Can’t live without it! For more information follow me on Instagram @uncovered.melanin❤️❤️

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 2
Hey y’all! This post is part 2 of my last post, which was me reviewing my followers skincare routines. That post would’ve been too long to do in one post, so here’s part 2! If you haven’t read part 1 I suggest you do, but this will still make sense if you haven’t. Someone messaged me concerned I was assuming pronouns, but I must assure you that I did ask. Our first routine comes from @matureskinwithErin. She starts off by cleansing with the#Murad - Resurgence Renewing Cleanser[products]#[TwoStars] which is $40 for 6.75 fl oz. This cleanser does have glycerin and a bunch of hydrating oils, but because of 2 ingredients I can’t in good faith support it. First is that it has fragrance, but the more important one is that it has lemon extract. Because lemon is a citrus fruit, it can be up to 5x more irritating in skincare. In general, you want to avoid all citrus extracts and oil. Next for a little bit of extra cleansing, she goes in with theBIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water which costs $14.90 for 16.7 fl oz. Because it’s a micellar water, there’s not a lot to say about it other than your getting a great deal. She then goes in with a Vitamin C serum, but I don’t know which one. I think is is unnecessary because of the next product that also has Vitamin C. Next she uses her LED light therapy mask (check out my resent post on these) with the#Paula’s Choice - RESIST Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum[products]#[FourStars] which costs $39 for 1 fl oz. This serum seems pretty good, even though it’s expensive. It has antioxidants including Vitamin E and C, Vitamin C also adds a brightening effect, and it has Ceramides, which help protect the skin from environmental damage such as pollution. Next she uses theDHC - Concentrated Eye Cream which is $35 for .7 fl oz. This eye cream seems to be really hydrating which is amazing for @matureskinwithErin’s dry skin! It has a lot of glycerin and squalane, both super hydrating ingredients, plus it has some cucumber extract, which is brightening and soothing. And finally she uses the#Paula’s Choice - CBD Oil + Retinol[products]#[FourStars] which is $54 for 1 fl oz. I do know that CBD oil and Retinol work great together to prevent severe aging, but as CBD oil is a new ingredient, there isn’t a ton of research. (For all about CBD check out my post on it) Not to mention this product also has Squalane! I think it’s a great product overall! BUT again we need some moisturizer and sunscreen! If y’all need recommendations, I can totally make a post and them! Our next routine comes from @EZ. She starts off by cleansing with the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser which is $14 for 16 fl oz. This a a great cleanser for normal to dry skin, and it had both glycerin and hylauronic acid. Next she goes in with the#Tonymoly - Vital Vita 12 Poresole Ampoule[products]#[ThreeStars] which costs $20 for 1 fl oz. This serum has a super long ingredients list, which is generally not a good thing in serums. Let’s start with the positives: this serum has Nicinamide, glycerin, squalane, lactic acid, Vitamin C, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid. The issue is that in between these awesome ingredients are tons of essential oils and extracts that can potentially irritate the skin. I went through and counted. There are 7 essential oils, and 12 extracts. If this product doesn’t irritate your skin @EZ, keep using it, but I have to warn people with sensitive skin to stay away. Now @EZ also uses 2 other treatments, but she never uses all 3 on the same day, which is an amazing practice to avoid irritation. Yes, your skin can breakout from too many ingredients! Now her first alternate treatment is#The Ordinary - Nicinamide serum[products]#[FiveStars] which is $5.90 for 1 fl oz. As you know, this is one of my favorite serums, super simple and efficient. Her other alternative treatment is the ordinary The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% which is $5.80 for 1 fl oz. The main ingredient in this is of course Vitamin C, and it also has a lot of squalane. So in her post she mentions that she has to mix this with her moisturizer otherwise it stings her face. I know exactly why. Most products with Vitamin C are formulated with 10-15%. Anything over this can be too much for people with sensitive skin such as @EZ because Vitamin C is very strong. I suggest you stop using this immediately, even mixed with moisturizer, because it’s clear your skin isn’t a fan. She also has 2 moisturizers that she switches out for. Her normal moisturizer is theCeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin which costs $11.99 for 8 fl oz. This a a super simple hydrating moisturizer which is great for combination skin like @EZ has. Her other moisturizer is theI DEW CARE - Say You Dew Moisturizing Vitamin C Gel + Cream which costs $23 for 1.69 fl oz. This is an interesting 2 in 1 moisturizer that you mix together. However I hate it. Here are the positives: glycerin, and nicinamide. And the negatives: it has a ton of fragrance, and a ton of irritating extracts and oils. One of those being lemon extract, which is awful. And finally she ends with a sunscreen with spf 50 (she doesn’t say which one). She says her sunscreen is greasy, so leave recommendations for her in the comments. I recommend theSupergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 and theLA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Dermo-Kids Gentle Sunscreen Lotion SPF 60 . So here’s what I’d do @EZ: keep your cleanser, keep your 2 serums because they seem to work for you, ditch the Vitamin C cream, and ditch the I Dew Care moisturizer. Keep the other moisturizer though and hunt for a sunscreen you love. Alright y’all that’s all I have for today, but look out for pt. 3 coming sometime next week. Please cheer for this post, comment below your sunscreen recommendations for combination sensitive skin, and follow me for similar content! -Mae

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.4 DAYS AGO
