Knowing The Difference Saved My Skin
Hi everyone I’m B...short for Bath-she-ba. I wanted to share a skincare tip with you guys that changed my skin for the better. For the longest I have struggled with the oiliest of oily skin and could not figure out why. Until recently when I was doing research to incorporate a few new products into my routine. To simply put it: Knowing the Difference Between Hydration and Moisturizarion. I know the difference may seem obvious but these two words are often used interchangeably by the skin care community and/or brands but they do not mean the same thing. I believed for a while that because I had oily skin I should be stripping it, I shouldn’t be moisturizing it (because of the high oil production) or if I were to drink enough water that will in turn hydrate my skin and these are all MISCONCEPTIONS that are just not TRUE. So Hydration vs. Moisturization HYDRATION (Hydration = Penetration) Hydration refers to the water content within the skin. So when your using hydrating products it penetrates deeper in the skin increasing the water content. MOISTURIZATION When you are moisturizing you are locking in the hydration to protect/enhance the skins natural barrier. So when you use a moisturizer you are creating a protective barrier that will help to avoid water loss within the skin. Through all my research I had discoverd I had OILY DEHYDRATED SKIN and honestly I was blown away at the fact that oily skin could be both. I came across this video: How To Find Your Skin Type by Hyram a Skincare Specialist: https://youtu.be/vic-EMOivpA In this video he points out that and I quote “Everyone has dehydrated skin in some way or another. From what I have learned your skin type is a manifestation of the hydration level of your face. Our skin is lacking the hydration that it needs so it shows that in different ways: whether that be by producing a ton of oil on the surface of the skin or by not producing any oil at all.” So in short ***ALL SKIN NEED HYDRATION AND MOSTURIZATION*** At this point of my research everything started to make a lot more sense — if you want to reduce the oiliness or dryness in your skin you need to HYDRATE IT!! As I said before drinking water is NOT enough to hydrate the skin you also have to manually put hydration into the skin. The most effective way that I’ve found is through a HYDRATING TONER. A hydrating toner is any water based toner plus a humectant. Water + Humectant = Hydrating Toner A HUMECTANT is an ingredient found in products that helps to hydrate the skin by attracting water molecules from your surroundings/environment. They are great for rehydration and increasing the skins water content. EX:Glycerin (common) and Hyaluronic Acid (common) A toner is highly effective because they are thin and absorb at a fast rate, which means you can layer this product comfortably, without fear of it being to heavy. I layered my toner using the 7 skin Method. Find out more in my next post running out of characters (lol yikes).
A healthy skin barrier can solve your problems🌱
A healthy skin barrier can solve your skin problems! 🌱 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐛𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐫? It is the outermost layer of the epidermis - stratum corneum - which functions as both a chemical and physical shield against pollutants, bacteria, irritants, etc.. A healthy skin barrier can slow down aging and even help acne heal quicker while lessening its severity. When the barrier is intact, your skin appears plump, and smooth, but when it’s compromised, skin becomes dehydrated, dull, and more prone to sun damage and irritation. Sensitivity to products, tendency to break out, acne and chronic dry skin are all signs of a weakened skin barrier. Your barrier’s health has a direct impact on how your skin looks, feels, and how it ages! 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐟𝐞𝐰 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐩 𝐝𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠: 1. Over-cleansing 2. Over-exfoliating 3. Washing your face using hot water 4. Using alcohol-based toner and fragrance-containing products 5. Unprotected exposure to sun’s UV rays 𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞’𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐝𝐨: ~ Hydrate continuously! A damaged epidermis requires moisture, so keeping your face and body well hydrated is critical in the fight to restore your barrier. Moisture-binding humectants such as glycerin, sorbitol, and hyaluronic acid are my favorites. ~ 𝐔𝐬𝐞 𝐨𝐜𝐜𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐬! An occlusive ingredient provides a protective seal over the surface of the skin and is critical to prevent loss of hydration. When choosing a face moisturizer, I always look for Dimethicone. If you have dry skin, choose a moisturizer with shea butter. For extra dry skin in the body, petrolatum will be your best friend. If you want something lighter than petrolatum, go for silicone based lotions. 𝐌𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐛𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: dimethicone, glycerin, ceramides, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, panthenol, oat and aloe extract. 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬: p.s all fragrance-free 𝐎𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧: 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫𝐬 - ceramides, niacinamide, dimethicone, HA. affordable and effective. 𝐍𝐞𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐚 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐨𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐆𝐞𝐥 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 - dimethicone based. Basic, lightweight, but does a great job. 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐫𝐨𝐬𝐚𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐠𝐞𝐥 - my top recommendation for oily and sensitive skin. Wonderful for people with rosacea. Calms, hydrates, and protects skin with dimethicone, aloe extract and licorice root. 𝐃𝐫𝐲 𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐧: 𝐄𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞 𝐇𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐒𝐨𝐨𝐧 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 - has panthenol and shea butter. Pretty no-nonsense. Although it has shea butter, I find this actually lightweight enough for oily skin. 𝐋𝐚 𝐑𝐨𝐜𝐡𝐞 𝐏𝐨𝐬𝐚𝐲 𝐂𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐁𝐚𝐮𝐦𝐞 - multi-purpose soothing balm for dry skin irritations. Has glycerin, shea butter, panthenol. 𝐃𝐫𝐮𝐧𝐤 𝐄𝐥𝐞𝐩𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐢 - Glycerin based and combines signal peptides and amino acids. Has a long ingredients list, but overall still worked well with me. 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐱 𝐔𝐥𝐭𝐫𝐚 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 - contains Riceramide®-3 blend of plant-based ceramides, natural essential fatty acids and cholesterol, combined with soothing emollients and hyaluronic acid to help relieve chronically dry skin. ❣️𝐏𝐲𝐮𝐧𝐠𝐤𝐚𝐧𝐠 𝐘𝐮𝐥 is a fragrance-free brand and uses a variety of root extracts and gentle ingredients to promote barrier restoration. I highly recommend the brand too! 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚 𝐝𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧: Vaseline, Aquaphor or 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 (lanolin-free) 𝐁𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐋𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: 𝐀𝐯𝐞𝐞𝐧𝐨 𝐃𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐁𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐋𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧- formulated with soothing oatmeal and rich emollients.

5 STEPS TO GLOWY SKIN (WITHOUT MAKEUP)✨
As the colder seasons approach, my skin tends to become dull and dry. During these months, I like to boost the hydration so I can still have glowy skin all year long. The radiant glow can be achieved WITHOUT makeup. All you need to do is follow these steps to enhance your natural glow ✨ Here are my 5 steps I take when I notice my skin becoming a little dull: 1. STAY HYDRATED- Drinking the correct amount of water for your body is important to eliminate toxins that buildup in the body. Staying hydrated is important as your skin is made up of so much water. I like to start my day with a glass of warm water and lemon before I eat food then continue to drink water throughout the day to stay hydrated. (Lemons help flush out toxins as they absorb them in the body) 2. EXFOLIATE- Dead skin cells can leave your complexion looking a little dull. To help reveal new skin, it is important to efoliate (but don’t overdue it, about 1-2x a week should be sufficient). I chose to use a facial razor to exfoliate. Without getting into too much detail: I steam my face to open up the pores and so my razor has something to glide with. I then point my razor at a 45 degree angle. (I can make a separate video on this if needed). There are so many forms of facial exfoliation so it’s best to find what works best for you. The razor I used is similar to this one: the CRÈME shop - Foldable Brow & Hair Razors 3. GLOWING/HYDRATING FACE MASK- there are so many masks out there that target glowing skin. I chose to make a DIY face mask to customize it directly to my skin needs. The mask consists of tumeric and honey. Tumeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to brightens the skin revealing a natural glow. Honey is great for moisturizing the skin. I chose this mask because it is great for acne-prone skin. I mixed the ingredients together an applied for 10-15 minutes. 4. MASSAGE THE FACE- I like to massage my face so it can help regulate my blood circulation for an instant glow. I use my VITAMASQUES - Rose Quartz Roller so my hands are not touching my face. Along with my roller, I use TRULY - Mary Jane CBD Glow Serum . This product “delivers powerful antioxidants to firm and brighten while replenishing essential hydration“. I also love this product because it has a shimmery sparkle which enhances my natural glow. 5. MOISTURIZE- You cannot expect any of the steps to work if you are not locking in the hydration you just added to the skin. Moisturizer creates this barrier between your skin and the outside world to help maintain its moisture. I like to use OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer because it is packed with vitamin-C. Vitamin-C is essential to keeping healthy collagen levels on your skin. It is also antioxidant-packed which helps further protect your skin from toxins. What’s some of your favorite tips for keeping glowy skin all year long? 🎶: dream a little dream of me by Ella Fitzgerald (Sandor remix) #CheriePartner

skincare routine update on accutane!
i thought i would also do an update on what products i have been using, since i just added a few a couple weeks ago! *** i do not use all of these every single day! *** night time routine: i’ll start off with the Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel , which i have a love, hate relationship with. i love the way it makes my skin feel cleansed of makeup or dirt at the end of the day, but unfortunately it has fragrance, so removing my mascara definitely burns. i then wash my face with the Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser , which i also just realized has fragrance pretty low in the ingredient list, but i still am okay with using it. after cleansing, VERSED - JUST BREATHE Clarifying Serum i use this serum, which has great ingredients in it for controlling the balance of your skin, and also calming it. i just got this around a week ago, but i love how fast my skin absorbs it! after applying serum, i use the Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer , and i absolutely love this moisturizer. i use the fragrance free one (there is one with and without fragrance), and it doesn’t make my skin sting and it feels really hydrating. after this i will apply the FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry , i don’t know how much of a difference it makes but 5 stars because no fragrance and it feels great :) lastly, i will sometimes use the HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original and Invisible+ Bundle , i like how it helps protect the breakout from environmental factors, but i don’t know how much it actually helps inflammation go down. if my skin is feeling extra dry, i will use The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil , which makes my skin feel great, but i feel like it causes me to breakout around my chin area, so i don’t use it more than 3 times a week. lastly, i will sometimes use the cocokind - Turmeric stick at night and i love, love, love this. it helps with calming inflammation, brightening your skin, and is super easy to apply. my only concern is the fact that the application is stick form, so it may transfer bacteria even if your skin is clean. but other than that, it doesn’t aggravate my skin and all of their products are amazing and i love the packaging and what the company stands for!

Morning Vs Night Skincare Routine
There is a difference with products and routine when it comes to Morning and Night time skin care. ❤️Products and routine varies depending on skin type. This is a simple morning and night skincare routine difference for you to work with❤️ 🌞Morning Skincare Routine🌞 Morning skincare routines are lightweight and simple (3 to 4 steps) The reason your morning skincare routine should be light is because you are active during the day, wearing makeup etc. This can cause you to sweat, produce more oil, expose your skin to the elements like pollution etc. Lightweight products are water based, thinner consistency and absorb easily. Also your morning routine will maintain your skin keeping it clear, balanced and glowing. My Favorite Morning Skincare Products DR. BRONNER'S - Baby Unscented Pure-Castile Liquid Soap DICKINSON'S - Witch Hazel Liquid DERMA•E - Vitamin C Concentrated Serum SheaMoisture - 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion 🌚Night Skincare Routine🌚 Night skincare routines are heavier and have more steps ( 6 to 7) The reason why night time routines are heavier is because you are ending the day ( cleansing , removing makeover) etc and rejuvenating your skin. Night is the best time to utilize skin treatments and mask because you are getting ready to sleep. While sleeping your skin repairs itself and has the time to absorb all the benefits of your products. My Favorite Night Skincare Products Nolaskinsentials - Glycolic Foam Cleanser artnaturals - Rose Water Toner teamí - Hibiscus Infused Vitamin C Serum SheaMoisture - African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask SheaMoisture - 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion SheaMoisture - 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Hopefully this is helpful when it comes to what you should do for a morning vs night skincare routine, any questions comment below #cheriecreator
