Challenges & Points
Earn points by completing challenges. Every point counts, bringing you closer to the next status, and unlocking unique rewards.
Head to your Profile and click on the Challenges tab. Here you can check the challenges you have left to reach the next status and unlock exclusive members-only rewards. You can also access the missions which you have completed.
Challenges that require a screenshot can take up to 3 days to be validated. If your screenshot corresponds to the criteria of validation, Me & CeraVe admin will validate it and you’ll receive your points. If it doesn’t meet criteria, you can submit another screenshot.
There are several times of missions:
  • One-time only challenges: Can only be completed once. One you’ve received the points, the mission will go in your “completed challenges” list and you won’t be able to complete it again.
  • Recurring challenges: Can be completed several times – every time you complete it, you’ll earn more points.
  • Temporary challenges: Can only be completed during a certain time period – they can be either unique or recurring. After that, they will disappear from the community.
If you didn't receive points for a challenge which you completed, it may be because your screenshot submission did not fit the criteria of validation. Please keep in mind that some challenges are unique, meaning that you can only complete it once. If you submit several screenshots for a unique mission, only one of them will be validated.

Each status requires you to complete specific missions. To find out how to level up, up you need to:

Rankings are based on the number of points each community member has. There are two types of ranking ("All time” and “Monthly"), which are updated every evening. Members leading the board are more likely to be appointed as Member of the Month.
