Battle of the Ointments: CeraVe VS Aquaphor!
Battle of the Ointments: CeraVe VS Aquaphor!
Whether you’re looking to prevent TEWL, an inexpensive lip balm, or an all-purpose ointment, you’ve most likely heard of these two products. Below we discuss what makes them unique from one another so you can make an informed purchase (and not get stuck with a giant tube you hate)! Feel & Texture Out of the tube, both ointments feel pretty similar. CeraVe is a white-ish color but goes on transparent like the Aquaphor. They both spread well once warmed up in your fingers. I would say the biggest difference is that the Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant is more prone to be affected by the weather. In the summer, when the tube is exposed to warmer temperatures, the ointment turns more liquid-y and is easier to push out of the tube, whereas in the winter it goes back to a more solid consistency and can be difficult to squeeze out. It also retains its tackiness, especially if spread thickly. Think of the texture somewhere between a tacky lip gloss and straight Vaseline. In contrast, the CeraVe - Healing Ointment is pretty immune to weather changes and will remain the same texture unless exposed to very extreme temperatures. When you warm it up on your fingers it is super easy to glide over your skin and thin out. It doesn’t drag. When applied thinly, the tackiness is almost non-existent. Ingredients Both have a little bit more than 40% petrolatum (Vaseline). Both have mineral oil as 2nd ingredient. Both have panthenol (a B vitamin). Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant contains lanolin as its main emollient, aided by a little bit of glycerin acting as a humectant. This product’s one and only antioxidant is bisabolol - an extract derived from the chamomile plant. That’s pretty much it. The ingredient list for this product is super simple. CeraVe - Healing Ointment concentrates more on skin-nourishing ingredients and a more sophisticated texture (hence the lack of tackiness when thinned out). It has 4 different kinds of ceramides (ceramide 1, ceramide 3, ceramide 6-II, & phytosphingosine), cholesterol, proline (an amino acid), and hyaluronic acid (a humectant). It also contains dimethicone and a bunch of other texture-enhancing ingredients! Which do I prefer? Honestly, I use both. I have found the Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant makes a great overnight lip balm when used after an essence/moisturizer on the lips and hands. The tackiness works in its favor and the lanolin and glycerin are very effective at moisturizing. CeraVe - Healing Ointment makes a horrible lip balm, IMO. The silky smooth texture is super luxe but for whatever reason it just doesn’t leave my lips as soft. BUT the texture and skin-replenishing ingredients makes it a great occlusive seal for all the skincare products I use on the rest of my face and it doesn’t leave my pillow a tacky mess!

It’s winter, and I just started tretinoin... aka my skin is DRY 😩 My lips have been suffering from it and I have seen countless TikTok and Cherie posts about this brand, but somehow never tried it before? Picked this up from W*lmart and applied it before bedtime... woke up the next morning and my lips were smooth as a baby’s booty. I’m amazing y’all. 10/10 will be purchasing more!

Derm doc’s tips and faves for dry hands ✨
Derm doc’s tips and faves for dry hands ✨
Anyone else experiencing dry hands like me? Winter is a common time for dry hands and hand dermatitis, but especially this year with the increased hand washing due to COVID. While there are multiple causes for hand dermatitis, COVID related dry hands are most likely due to contact dermatitis which comes in two forms. Allergic contact dermatitis is when we see a true allergy to an ingredient, preservative, metal, etc. More often than not, we are seeing a lot of irritant contact dermatitis in clinic lately in which the increased use of soap/alcohol is causing an impaired skin barrier and removing natural moisturizing factor from the epidermis—allowing the irritants to cause further inflammation. Swipe right to see some easy tips on how to improve hand dryness and my favorite products Comment below with your favorite hand treatments ✨skinfix - Eczema+ Hand Repair Cream Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant Vaseline - 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, Original Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Fragrance Free Hand Cream CeraVe - Healing Ointment CeraVe - Therapeutic Hand Cream

✨ nighttime skincare routine video! ✨
✨ nighttime skincare routine video! ✨
Someone asked me to share my skincare routine so here is a video of my nighttime routine! I usually like to shower in the evening to get the dirt and sweat from the day off my body and to ensure I am clean when my head hits the pillow. My skincare routine actually starts before I hop into the shower. I always always double cleanse, so before I hop into the shower, I remove the makeup, sunscreen, and dirt off my face with BOBBI BROWN - Soothing Face Cleanser Oil . I love this oil cleanser because it’s soothing, it melts my makeup and sunscreen off, and I can feel my dead skin flakes coming off my face. Then while I’m in my shower, I use the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser . It feels milky and gel-like for a great hydrating cleanse! As soon as I step out of the shower, I wrap my hair in a towel and get to moisturizing my body. My current body lotion is the Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion . I don’t even touch my face. It does dry up a little when I’m lathering up my body, so before I continue with the rest of my skincare routine, I splash some cold water on my face and neck so it’s prepped for my routine. Sometimes I’ll let my face air dry a bit (until it’s still slightly damp), but other times I’ll lightly remove the excess water with a face towel. Then I go in with the following products to get my nighttime glow: Toner: PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner Hydration: Curél - Moisture Facial Lotion Enrich (3 pumps) HERITAGE STORE - Vegetable Glycerin(I got min from a CVS, it’s not Heritage Store but any pure vegetable glycerin works, mix 2 drops with Curél facial lotion) The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (can’t wait to finish this up and try out THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum) Treatment: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Eye Cream: GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask Moisturizer: CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Lips: Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant Let that sink in and dry for a few minutes Acne Treatment: #Perrigo - Tretinoin Cream 0.1%[products]#[FiveStars] (prescription only) #Allergan - Azelex Azelaic Acid Cream 20%[products]#[FiveStars] (prescription only) Antioxidant: dear, klairs - Fundamental Watery Oil Drop Moisturizer: CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Oil: The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil (2 drops) #365 Everyday Value - 100% Essential Oil Tea Tree[products]#[FiveStars] (1 drop mixed in with rosehip oil) Eyebrows and Eyelashes: TROPIC ISLE LIVING - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Lmk what you think! ✨💞✨💞

One Week Using Differin
One Week Using Differin
Experience: I started using Differin about a week ago to deal with my maskne and dark spots. Ever since I started wearing masks more frequently, my skin has essentially freaked out. It’s super sensitive and dry, especially around my mouth, but I get cystic-like acne along the area where my mask touches my face. I decided that I was going to try Differin as my last resort before going to the dermatologist (cause I’m still nervous about going to doctor’s offices, unless absolutely necessary because of covid). The instructions recommend daily use; however, I began my first week by using it every other day since I’ve had negative experiences/reactions with other active ingredients before. Since then, I’ve begun using it every night. I use this in the evening after cleansing and applying moisturizer and Aquaphor’s healing ointment. Pros: I definitely already see a visible improvement in my skin, especially with the hyperpigmentation that I’ve dealt with. I do use other products that help with brightening, but I’ve been using those products for quite a while and haven’t seen such a drastic improvement until now. Cons: I experienced a few small breakouts around my chin, but they went away pretty quickly. I have yet to experience any significant purging/dryness, but I also didn’t jump immediately to daily use. Other Products I Use + Frequency: CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser (everyday, AM/PM) DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser(everyday to remove sunscreen, PM) The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA(every other day, alternate between this and the next product/AM) The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%(every other day, alternate between this and the previous product/AM) DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream (everyday, AM/PM) DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30(everyday, AM) Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant(everyday, use as a lip balm and to protect sensitive areas of my skin when applying Differin)

dealing with 🦠 angular cheilitis 🦠
dealing with 🦠 angular cheilitis 🦠
Ever had those really painful cracks in the corner of your mouth? And it’s so hard to eat and open your mouth? And your lip corners get really red and flaky? Chances are you have angular cheilitis. What is angular cheilitis? Angular cheilitis is a condition that is usually caused by bacteria or fungus (gross, I know) that collects in the corners of your mouth when your saliva collects and dries. This leads to cracks, inflammation, scaling, redness, and flakiness. It can sometimes get ugly. You are more likely to get angular cheilitis if you: Wear braces, dentures, or retainers Lick your lips a lot (use lip balm instead!) Have a lot of saliva Sleep with your mouth open or drool in your sleep Smoke Take or use certain medications that can cause imbalances in fungus and bacteria in your body So how do you treat it? It really depends on what type of angular cheilitis you have. If it’s fungal, you should get an anti-fungal treatment. If it’s bacterial, try a topical antibiotic (you should check with your dermatologist or doctor to see if they can help you figure out what kind). You can also use some more natural remedies like tea tree oil, coconut oil, or olive oil. They all have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties! If you’re feeling particularly dry, use coconut or olive oil to help moisturize. You can also put a petroleum jelly or something like aquaphor on your lips and corners to seal out moisture. And STOP LICKING YOUR LIPS! How do you prevent it? Make sure that you are keeping proper dental hygiene and make sure that your dental ware are properly fitted. Use a lip balm to keep your lips hydrated and moisturizer so that you reduce dryness and prevent yourself from licking your lips. I know having this is super annoying and it doesn’t look good, but it happens, so knowing how to prevent and treat it will help you when it suddenly appears on your mouth!
