Been a minute since my last post. I have been really lazy putting up a post and I apologize.
Let’s just get right into today’s post: my skin care products
Some days ago I was looking at pictures I took of myself and couldn’t help but appreciate my beautiful dark, melanin skin and in the era where people bleach their skins, I am really grateful for my dark one and I think you should too. Black is beautiful.
I’d be sharing with you what I do to take care of my skin and I hope it helps you one way or the other.
Before I go on, you need to understand what your skin wants- this is the most important tip ever. Know what works for your skin. The skin is a very delicate part of your body and knowing what goes and what doesn’t helps a lot. Overtime, I realized what works for my skin and it’s been a great journey since I started using only what works.
So, let’s get into my skin care products:
A) Face soap: like I said earlier, knowing what works for you is really important. I discovered that when I use certain medicated soaps on my face, I tend to have pimples all over so I stopped using them and just use any soap that doesn’t have medicated or antiseptic in its name. However, I started using Safeguard recently and my face has been almost smooth. I also do not use black soap for my face because I also tend to break out when I do.
B) Black Soap: I don’t use it for my face but I use it for other parts of my body. It’s organic, natural and really healthy for the skin.
C) Shea butter and coconut oil: I use the mix of both as body lotion and it gives me that natural body glow.
D) Face cream: I don’t use my Shea butter and coconut oil mix for my face because I have also discovered that any form of oil on my face causes breakouts for me so anything that doesn’t involve oil is perfect for my face. I also don’t use anything with chemicals. Any facial cream with just natural products is fine.
E) No makeup: I literally use nothing, not even powder on my face asides my lip gloss everyday except I have a wedding to attend or any special event and it’s been really helpful. It gives my face that fresh, youthful look. The makeup-free face also gives room for your face to breathe.
I hope these tips are helpful. Please do let me know in the comments section and also what skin care products you use.
N.B: Nobody’s skin is perfect so don’t be too hard on yourself, find out what works for you and be consistent.
Lastly, drink water and mind your business lol. Seriously though, does that work?
Till next time, ciao.
