Quick Guide To Using Niacinamide For Bright Skin
For someone like me who has combination skin and plenty of dark marks, niacinamide is definitely heaven-sent. Niacinamide is basically vitamin B3 in its active form. This ingredient is known to ease redness, lighten dark spots, and minimize pore appearance. Currently, I use niacinamide products regularly as part of my night routine. Prior to using this, I was using AHA products for the micro peel effect, but I stopped because I read on several blogs that niacinamide and AHA can’t be used together. So, how do I use niacinamide on my skin? I actually have two products containing this ingredient: an essence and a serum. After washing my face and applying toner, I use my palms to apply Nacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence. Next, I follow it up with The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I then apply eye cream to my eye area to prevent wrinkles. Lastly, I use my favorite night cream to leave my skin moisturized overnight. Nacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence is a lightweight essence that gets absorbed quickly into the skin. TO Niacinamide serum is a crowd-favorite for a reason – it’s very effective in brightening up the skin and lightening any hyperpigmentation. That said, some people have reported getting breakouts or other adverse products from this serum, so check the ingredients list first if you happen to be sensitive to an ingredient or two. 💋💋💋💋💋 5 out of 5 kisses for Niacinamide! I’ve been using niacinamide products for a good part of the year now and I’ve seen some noticeable differences in my skin. Niacinamide helped my skin go from dull to bright in just a short period of time. Say bye-bye to dark spots with this HG-worthy ingredient!

PHYSICIANS FORMULA Booster Shot❗️
So when I ran out of The Ordinary niacinamide, I looked to something else that was still within a reasonable price range. TO’s niacinamide was out of stock everywhere :( Seeing that I was still on a budget, and I needed a serum that will still (hopefully) lighten my scars, I came across this— Physicians Formula Skin Booster Vitamin Shot. Of course, I chose the brightening one since my main concern at the time was dark spots and scarring. Before purchasing this, I looked up the ingredients, and it contained vitamin C and niacinamide as its active ingredients. I’ve read everyone’s reviews and most of them said that this serum worked for them. I thought, “ok, why not give this a shot?” (pun intended 😏) And so, I bought it. Here’s the unfortunate part—it didn’t really work for me. ☹️ Whenever I buy a new product, I’m always hopeful it’s going to work, but I do prepare for the worst. Thankfully, I didn’t break out from this, but it just didn’t do anything good for me. I didn’t see much change in my dark spots and scarring. However, I think it did a decent job at keeping my skin hydrated. Other than that, nothing. Since I bought this, I did want to try to use it up or just most of it in hopes of seeing noticeable results. Still, nothing happened. This product isn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either, at least for me. I’m very happy that others had better experiences with this, but this was a miss 😕 Maybe the concentration levels of the vitamin C and niacinamide were too low for my skin to function with. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Skin Booster Vitamin Shot Brightening
PHYSICIANS FORMULA-Skin Booster Vitamin Shot Brightening
It’s been over a month since I started using The ordinary’s niacinamide and zinc serum. I had a lot of closed comedomes, very textured and dull skin. Safe to say, My skin is much brighter, hydrated and glowy! I have a very sensitive skin so I only use it at night every other day. And if I chemical exfoliate, I give myself a couple days off from niacinamide to avoid any more acids to my face. Thats just how my sensitive my face is. Definitely will keep using this serum. Never felt more confident than I do now! Love this product.

Get Glowing Skin for Beginners ✨
So you’re getting into skincare and want to get the glow? For me, glowing skin is about overall skin health. Here are the top tips I have! I have combo skin that is sensitive and acne-prone. 💛Acne Attack My skin journey began with a lot of hormonal and cystic acne so I started figuring out what to do to deal with that. I currently give credit to the following for really making a difference: ✨Retinol/Retinal These increase skin cell turnover so they are essentially acne medication. I recommend starting very slowly with these at night with a heavier moisturizer because they can be drying. These heal my breakouts faster and prevent them in the first place. ✨Vitamin C I give this lots of credit for helping with any hyperpigmentation that happens after breakouts. So incredible for acne scars and overall brightening your skin! I love to use mine during the day to fight free radicals. ✨Sunscreen The true hero of skincare. If you’re not using this, nothing else matters. I recommend Krave - The Beet Shield which also has vitamin C. ✨Double cleansing at night. Buy a cleansing balm and gently massage your face for 10 minutes. Seriously you will feel the junk leaving your pores. This helps take off makeup, sunscreen, dirt and pollutants from the day. Always do this at night before a regular water-based cleanser like Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser 💛HYDRATION I always tell people when they start, find a good cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. This is the core of skincare health. Sure the actives are great for specific concerns, but the basics can take you far too. When I’m looking for a moisturizer, I want ceramides in it. I currently alternate between these two: #FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer[products]#[FiveStars] #CeraVe - Healing Ointment[products]#[FiveStars] The healing ointment is best for night because it is THICK and no joke but wow does it always hydrate my entire life. 💛Exfoliation Exfoliation is huge for glowing skin. I prefer chemical exfoliation because it is gentler than physical scrubs. You’ll want to look for anything with AHA, BHA or PHA. My favorite exfoliants are: FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Dr Dennis Gross - Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula 30 Applications Honeymoon Glow has AHA as well as gentle flower acids. I find this literally does give me a glow the next morning and is great for breakouts. It can feel a bit strong so maybe start slow and work your way up. Other things that helped me: ✨I stopped drinking ✨I drink way more water now ✨Using Pink Clay masks removes impurities when needed ✨Niacinamide (I’ll use this for texture with Vitamin C and yes you can use them together safely- there’s an old belief that you can’t) ✨SUNSCREEN AGAIN 💚The key is consistency in your routine, using products that work for YOU and adjusting here and there for concerns. #CheriePartner

5 Reasons Why I Love TO’s Niacinamide Serum
I first heard about The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum when I was searching for brightening serums last year. While my combination skin rarely ever breaks out, I do have some dark marks left over from the occasional pimples that I would like to disappear, or at least, improve in appearance. So I ordered TO’s Niacinamide Serum, crossing my fingers and hoping that it’s actually effective. It’s been almost a whole year later and I’m already on my third bottle of this serum. I have to say, I love it more and more as time goes by! Here are the 5 reasons why. 1. It lightens up my dark spots. It’s not a very dramatic change, mind you, but it does lighten my dark spots quite noticeably. I guess I’ll have to use a few more bottles of this serum if I want to completely lighten them. 2. It smoothens my skin’s texture. I can't believe just how nice it is to glide your fingers over your skin and not feel any bumps! 3. It provides much-needed moisture. My skin never feels dry when I have this serum on. I think it’s successful in locking in the moisture from my essence, too. 4. It doesn’t make my skin oily. Even though it moisturizes my skin, it doesn’t make my face look oily or greasy. This is very important to me because I really like keeping my face matte. 5. It makes me look fresh in the morning. Who doesn’t like seeing that healthy glow on their face when they wake up in the morning? Definitely not me! Can you guess what my overall rating is? 💋💋💋💋💋 5 out of 5 kisses! I really enjoy using this product and I think I’ll keep using it for the future, at least until I find a worthy replacement. Hopefully not, though! If you have some dark spots and you’re having a hard time reducing their appearance, you may want to try out The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum! You can get it for only $5.90 on the Cherie website! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Have you tried this product before? Loved it, hated it? Let me know in the comments!

Korean Skincare Haul !!! ✨✨
If you haven’t dabbled into Korean skincare it’s time to hop on the wagon ! Some of the best products I’ve used that truly changed my skin are by K-beauty. By uncovering new and effiacious ingredients, they create innovative formulas that are both gentle and effective. Best part of k-beauty is how affordable they are. Western skincare has convinced us that in order to have good skin you have to spend a lot of money. K-beauty challenges that concept by creating products with high quality ingredients and formulas while still remaining budget friendly. Starting off with products I repurchased are PURITO - Centella Unscented Toner I love this product, this really helps to bring down inflammation on the skin, it’s soothing, calming, and it’s very hydrating on the skin as well.

It’s benefits include anti aging, it’s anti inflammatory, helps even out your skin, hydration, and healing. I love the texture and feel to this. It’s a little thicker than any of my other toners but when applied it seeps into your skin quickly without leaving a sticky feel on your face. innisfree - Green Tea Fresh Toner Another favorite toner of mine and a great staple to add to your routine. The first ingredient listed is Green tea extract meaning your getting the highest concentration of green tea as the first ingredient in this product. I love to use this in my morning routine to give my skin an extra boost hydration throughout the day. Not to mention fragrance free 😍 Products I’m excited to try: Benton - Benton Snail Bee Ultimate SerumFrom reviews I’ve read, this is soothing, hydrating, brightening, and helps protect against moisture loss. It’s a non-irritating formula that should be easy to incorporate even for sensitive skin. Super excited to try this out !

It’s a lightweight formula that delivers hydration and gives the skin that instant brightening effect we all love. Great for both oily and dry skin. I'm from - Honey MaskI love honey ! It’s a great humectant, great for irritated skin, good for acne, and intense moisture. There is 38.7% of real high quality Korean honey. Great for most skin types.
