The trick to healthy skincare is knowing your skin. That is the only way to identify the appropriate skincare products tailor made for your skin type. Not all skin is created equal. So, it is important for you to know your skin's natural state. Here is a quick and easy way to determine your skin type. The wash face test 🧼 Wash your face 🛑 Do not apply any product after washing face ⏰ Wait for 2 hours After 2 hours, examine how your skin feels. Your skin type is Normal: if no oil or flakes. Oily: if skin is shiny all over. Dry: if skin feels tight or flakes Combo: T-zone oily, dry/normal everywhere else on face That is it! I lucked out with a combination skin type. sigh! My cheeks are always dry while that T-zone is dripping oil!! Always a struggle finding the right balance of products to maintain a healthy glow. However, if I manage to do it so can you!! Now go ahead, try the wash test to find out your skin type!! xoxo, IG: @theculderm

Derm Tips on Cherie: Retinoids and Oils
My beauty journey kind of started this past summer when we were locked down and I got a really bad breakout that just didn’t seem to go away. I started researching products to use and how to apply skincare, thankfully I discovered @cherie, and I went to go see a dermatologist! I’ve learned SOOOOO much since starting my beauty journey, so in light of this week’s Cherie topic, I’d like to share the two most helpful tips I’ve learned! 1) Retinoic Acid/Retinoid/Tretinoin If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you’ve seen that I use Tretinoin Cream 0.1% every single night, and I’ve been using it for about 19 weeks. It has become my holy grail! It has cleared up my acne and blackheads, healed my acne scars, faded my PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), and in general has smoothed out my skin’s texture. I don’t really have wrinkles (I just turned 21 two months ago), but Tretinoin is super helpful for wrinkles too! So I guess I would say, invest in some form of retinol/retinoic acid/retinoid and just be patient while you watch your skin transform into the glowy, smooth, and beautiful skin that you’ve always wanted! 2) Oils When I first started my beauty journey in the summer, my skin was oily oily oily! I didn’t really know how to handle it, and I really thought it was best for me to dry it out, and of course, I tried to stay away from oils. But this couldn’t be farther from what you should really do! I’ve learned that oily skin can really benefit from oils like Rosehip Oil, Squalane Oil, and Marula Oil—just to name a few—to hydrate and moisturize your skin. These oils mimic your skin’s natural oils, so it sort of tricks your skin into not producing as much oil. You can even use oils like Olive Oil or Coconut Oil to remove makeup or use as a first cleanse—just make sure you don’t leave it on your face, as these oils can potentially clog your pores! Oils in general are great for all skin types, just make sure you find which type of oil is most compatible with your skin type! The oil I’ve been using for the past few months is The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil . I highly recommend it! I hope sharing this inspires you to incorporate retinoids and oils into your skincare routine!

Dermatologist tips on pores!
FACTS ABOUT PORES: Pore size is affected by: ✔️ Age ✔️ Sun exposure overtime ✔️ Genetics ✔️ Skin type For these reasons, it is not possible to shrink pores, but these products can help minimize the appearance of pores (I listed different options to choose from in each category. One from each category is all that would be needed): 1. Sunscreen ✔️ SPF 30 or higher in the morning, reapply every 2 hours (can use setting powder to reapply!) CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Ultra Fluid Face Lotion SPF 50+ Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 2. Salicylic acid cleanser ✔️ Once a day ✔️ Treatment for acne CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser 3. Retinoids/retinol ✔️ Takes ~12 weeks to see an effect ✔️ Treatment for acne ❗️Acne may get worse before it gets better ❗️Only at night, must wear sunscreen during the day ❌ Avoid in pregnancy and breastfeeding DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment ❗️Sensitive skin may not be able to use salicylic acid cleanser and retinol/retinoid together at night (may be too irritating) ✔️ For sensitive skin: can consider salicylic acid cleanser in the morning & retinol/retinoid at night It can take weeks to months to start noticing a difference, patience is 🔑 What works to help decrease the appearance of your pores?

Derm Tips: Washing Your Face, Slugging and More
Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽♀️ I recently saw a post from Cherie 🍒 about Derm tips and what we’ve learnt and recommended over our Journey. I’ve shared so many tips with Beauty’s i thought I’d do my top four. 😁 4. Washing your face At a bare minimum wash your face twice a day, in the morning and evening. Use warm water as hot water 🚿 can cause a dilation of the blood 🩸 and breakage of tissue. Hot water can trigger skin conditions like rosacea so lukewarm water is best. 😄 Only wash as often as you have to as washing your face more than twice a day isn’t necessary. Hydration mists are a great alternative for dry and mature skin throughout the day. I’m on the hunt for a good hydration mist. 😃 3. Choose the right cleanser for your skin type When choosing a cleanser, choose a texture you enjoy using and know the different types. 🧚♀️ Foam and gels are great for combination, oily acne prone skin 🧚♀️ Cleansing milk is suitable for normal to dry skin 🧚♀️ Oil based cleansers are generally great for all skin types 2. Last year I started my natural series where I talk about the benefits of natural ingredients and also highlight natural face masks I’ve tried. Some beauty’s promote natural masks and some beauty’s caution ⚠️ against using natural ingredients. My thoughts are each to their own ☺️ but if you do try them, know what ingredients are good for your skin type and what are too astringent. And do patch tests! 😉 For me the pro is it saves money 💰 and works for some issues but the con is that natural remedies don’t have the same innovative ingredients to work their magic 🪄 included in some of my skincare products. 😁 1. Slugging Slugging? In short, slugging is a skincare trend that involves smearing a thick layer of Vaseline or other occlusive all over your face before bed. Pub Med say, skin occlusion produces profound changes, including hydration, barrier permeability, epidermal lipids, DNA synthesis, microbial flora, and numerous molecular and cellular processes. It often, but not always, increases percutaneous absorption of applied chemicals. Basically it’s great for the skin. 😁 So those were some of my many recommendations from last year. If you want more detail you’ll find posts on my page. 😉 I’d love to know your thoughts about any of my recommendations. Would you do natural face masks, yes or no? 🧐 have to tried slugging and what occlusive did you apply? Have a great day and look out for my natural series post tomorrow. Happy Wellness Wednesday! Jade 😁
