My skincare products and routine : any thoughts?
Hi loves, so even though I already have a pretty good routine for my skin, I feel like I still have so much to learn and therefore maybe other adjustments to do with my habits to really have a good and effective routine for my skin! Here’s what I usually do : (this is for someone who has combination skin; the t-zone gets oily, other parts tend to be dry and sometimes even sensitive; i never had major acne too so i wouldn’t label myself as “acne-prone skin” type of gal🤷🏻♂️) 1) CLEANSE : I wash my face with the acne wash by Benzagel Benzagel - Acne Wash ** If I run out of product : I use another cleanser from Alya alya skin. - Foaming Micellar Cleanser *** After one of the products listed here, I use the cleansing butter from Wishful to remove excess oils/makeup before anything else! HUDA BEAUTY - Clean Genie Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm 2) EXFOLIATE/SCRUB : I exfoliate my skin (1-2 times a week) with Wishful products HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub 3) Tone : I’m still pretty new to the “skincare” world and I never toned my skin up until today so feel free to suggest/recommend me products you tried and/or heard of that were good, that’d be great 👼🏻💓 4) Essence : I use to put some of the serums of L’Occitane en Provence to replace the essence I still don’t have! Then again, feel free to suggest me products you think would work!! Thanks 💓 5) Serum : I ran out of the product itself but usually I was using (like mentioned before) L’Occitane en Provence’s serum and it really felt nice on my skin! L'OCCITANE - Peony Perfecting Essence 5.1) Serum #2 : I can also switch with L'OCCITANE - Immortelle Overnight Reset Oil-in-Serum 6) Moisturize : I’m using Wishful’s product called HUDA BEAUTY - Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer and it really feels nice on my skin! 7) Sunscreen : Right after moisturizing my skin, it’s recommended to directly apply sunscreen on top of the moisturizer of Wishful (or HUDA BEAUTY) LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Lotion SPF 60 8) Oil : Even though I had the sample version of the actual thing, I’m currently working with L’Occitane en Provence’s youth oil, which leaves my skin shiny and cute 🥰 L'OCCITANE - Immortelle Divine Youth Oil 9) Eye cream (or gel): Apparently it’d be nice for me to use some eye cream (based on the analysis that Cherie provides me) but I’m not currently using and not so sure of which products I should/shouldn’t be using! Then again, if you know any good stuff that’d work perfectly with my type of skin, let me know in the comments!! That’s all for me, I know I don’t have the perfect skincare routine but I’m ready to consider any constructive feedback on the thing(s) I could try/do/change to improve it! Thanks, have a good one 💓
Myth: the higher the SPF, the more protected you are from UV rays. Truth: the truth is, theres not much difference between SPF 30 and 50 in terms of how much percentage of sun rays are blocked. I believe the you grt arohnd 97% coverage with an SPF30 and 98% with an SPF50. Realistically, you’re ok with an SPF30 or 40, and just make sure you’re reapplying every two hours or as directed. This has been a myth I grew up with and went into my teens with. I even saw an SPF100 one time. I was surprised when I was told to still be careful because SPF100 did NOT mean i was 100% covered and protected, which is a big part of why brands are no longer labelling or marketing for an SPF higher than 60; nowadays, thats the highest you’ll find on the shelf. I learned that in the recent years when I became more passionate and savvy about skincare, and now I use my favourite sunscreen by Vivier cosmetics, an SPF of 45 and its working great for me. I especially love the texture and feel on my oily skin. These stats are for UVB rays, UVA rays are different and are blocked out in different numbers, but thats a story for another post. For now, have fun with your SPF 30+!

This product is worst sunscreen ever. This comes off like a peel off mask after few mins of applications. Absolutely destroys your makeup if you are using it immediately on top of it. You can use this sunscreen as a stand-alone on your skin with absolutely no other products. I would like to hear more stories about this sunscreen. #sunscreen #cherriespotlight #fyp

My Morning routine is all about protection! Protection from the sun and pollution in the air. I have dry skin and it needs a lot of moisture and hydration. No cleansing. I rarely cleanse in the morning mainly because I have dry skin and cleansing in the morning makes it’s feel dry. I always double cleanse at night to get all grime and makeup off. I just splash with warm water and apply my products First step is the OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum this has hyaluronic acid in which is great for absorbing moisture and putting it back into your skin. Vitamin C is great for the morning but you must use SPF as it makes your skin sensitive to sunlight but when you use SPF with vitamin c they work together to fight off free radicals. Next is a prescription eczema cream now if you don’t have eczema feel free to skip this step. This cream is specifically for this face as it doesn’t have steroids in it and I put it on my eyes and around my mouth when I have flare ups. Next is the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Eye Duty Triple Remedy A.M. Gel Cream very basic eye cream that helps hydrate your skin and just locks moisture in. Don’t have to use an eye cream but it’s always nice to have Then I apply FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration this is a basic moisturiser that hydrates the skin. It has ceramides and antioxidants that help repair and nourish the skin barrier. It is fairly light weight but very moisturising. The most important step and then final one LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Lotion SPF 60 sunscreen is a must ! And this one is amazing for sensitive skin and is very light weight. You must always wear sunscreen during the day. Because the sun is the number one cause of wrinkles and it protects you from more nasty things as well.

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
