She may or may not be your cup of tea.
But this week rapper Cardi B reached out to her fans on social media for of all things …skin care tips! Along with skin care product recommendations.
She even shared pictures of her troubled skin. It wasn’t pretty! She mentioned ” This is my cheek…its been happening for like 3 months now. Shit really is uncomfortable.”
And she said according to her Twitter post: “That gave me some shit that dried out my face more and make me get more pours. They said it would take 3 months but I don’t got time for that and didn’t give a reason on why I am breaking out.”
What is wrong with this picture?
My thoughts as a beauty and skin professional…
ALWAYS seek a professional! That’s what they are for. They are trained professionals. Not fans. (While word of mouth recommendations are fine and work out some time.) And one consult may not be enough. If one Doctor doesn’t work for you try another. And remember not all skin issues are acne or the same. A few clogged pores does not mean it is acne!
Patience is key when being treated by a Dr. or esthetician.
Book an appointment with a dermatologist!
They can’t help you unless you go to see them and have them look at your skin. Cardi B’s skin could have been on its way to looking better and healthier if she just made that call and see another doctor if she felt she was not getting results.
Dermatologists nowadays are also retailing skin care not just injectionbles and Botox but professional medical grade skin care. There are many reasons why the skin can have issues. Hormones,diet,stress,overkill of makeup,going to sleep with makeup still on.
Maybe the current skin care you use needs a refresh!
Maybe what you are using isn’t working for you anymore. Time to try something NEW. A makeup artist,skin care expert or dermatologist or plastic surgeons office can recommend a line and plan for you.
Or book an appointment with an esthetician to look at your skin and get a consultation and a deep cleansing facial.They work wonders.
So I’ll end with this message never wait for weeks or months!
If you see something … do something!
There is help! There are answers. Clear up NOT cover up and be patient.
