Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well.

I thought I would share the routine I recommend for combination-oily blemish prone skin. (if your skin type is dry, I suggest a different cleanser!)

Lets run through the products...

Blemish Control Cleanser
This can be used morning and evening to remote dirt and excess oils. It helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes and blackheads.
It contains:
2% Salicylic Acid - to unclog pores and minimise shine.
Niacinamide - to soothe and even out skin tone.
3 Essential Ceramides - to strengthen the skin barrier.

AM Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF50
The higher of sun protection the better for blemish prone skin!
UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection.
A lightweight, oil free and non-comedogenic formula.
It contains:
Hyaluronic Acid - to deeply hydrate
3 Essential Ceramides


Blemish Control Gel
This can be used as a facial moisturiser or spot treatment. Use in PM only.
It targets blemishes and blackheds and helps to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.
It has a gel, lightweight texture that absorbs into the skin quickly.
It contains:
2% Salicylic Acid (BHA - works inside the pores as well as the skins surface)
Glycolic and Lactic Acid which increase the skin cell turnover (AHA's - these work only on the skins surface)
3 Essential Ceramides

Hope this helps! As always if you have any questions, be sure to leave them in the comments below or head over to the Ask A Skin Expert section.

Have a lovely evening all 💙

Hi everyone, hope you're all well.

This week I have created a product application guide. This will of course differ from person to person so this is just an average guide! AND it also depends on if you are applying the product down to your neck and chest (which really, we should be doing!)

Why is it bad to over-apply our products?

  • Not all the product can absorb into the skin, this results in the products feeling "heavy" and "mask-like" .
  • Pilling. This happens when different textures of products are layered together, forming white dots all over the face and the products clump together. This is often due to 2 reasons, 1) you applied too much product 2) not enough time waited between each step. To avoid pilling, wait 5 to 10 minutes between serum-moisturiser-spf.
  • Not cost effective. You actually need much less of a serum than you think, (see guide) 1 pump of Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid or Resurfacing Retinol should be more than enough. Apply to the back of your hand before applying to the face to avoid over using. Too much retinol can also cause irritation and damage your skin barrier.

Products used and how much:
Foaming Cleanser
Half a pump

1 pump

Moisturiser - Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF50
length of two fingers / half a teaspoon on face and neck!

Eye Repair Cream
pea sized amount

PM Facial Moisturising Lotion
2-3 pumps

Hope you all found this interesting and helpful, let me know in the comments if you have any questions 💙

How much should I be using?

Hey Me + CeraVe

I hope everyone is well -  I wanted to share about Ceramides with you.

What Are Ceramides?

Ceramides are a type of LIPID,  naturally found in the skin. they are an essential component of the skin's barrier function.
Ceramides help to form a protective layer on the outermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum.
This layer of the skin works as a barrier, preventing moisture loss and protecting the skin from environmental stressors.

Ceramides help to maintain skin hydration, elasticity, and overall skin health. They help to strengthen the skin barrier, keeping it intact and preventing the entry of harmful substances. Ceramides contribute to the regulation of cell signalling, inflammation, and the repair of damaged skin.

**CeraVe Ceramides **

  1. Ceramide 1: Reinforces lipid bi-layers
  2. Ceramide 3: Improves long-term Moisturisation
  3. Ceramide 6-11: Natural Moisturising factor

The Combination will help replenish and restore the skin's natural barrier function and replenish dry, sensitive, or compromised skin.

I hope you enjoyed learning something new about CeraVe Ceramides - Let me know if you have 💙

Hi lovely community!

How are we all today? We had some snow this week and I really wanted to come on and talk about Hydration, but what if you're experiencing breakouts too?

Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Hyaluronic Acid is great for reducing moisture loss in the skin, which is important ALL year round but especially in the winter. This has a gel-cream formula which has MVE technology, bascially it delivers hydration throughout the day/evening. It also has 3 Essential Ceramides and Vitamin B5 to soothe and strengthen the skin barrier.

Blemish Control Gel
This can be used as a moisturiser or a spot treatment. It contains:
AHA - Glycolic Acid & Lactic Acid - exfoliate the surface of the skin
BHA - Salicylic Acid - exfoliate the surface and inside the pores
Essential Ceramides

This duo is to be used in the evening, as the Blemish Control is specifically to be used at night. Wait 5-10 mins before layering the products!

Let me know in the comments if you will be trying these two products together! 💙
