I wanted to come on and share my current skincare routine; this routine is very simple I personally don’t like to have too man steps nor do I feel the need to have too many steps because it’s discouraging and not really necessary. I have found that simple is better and less is more unless it comes to food then all bets are OFF! lol!!
For those of you who have been following me on YouTube for a while you know my skin has come a long way. To go even further, I have had bad skin since I was a teenager, I been it was BAD to the point that I never wanted to take pictures and the ones I DID take will remain at my grandparent’s home OFF the internet. LOL I’m DEAD serious though. My acne was bad, and everywhere, and I had a LOT of hyper-pigmentation.
I have worked hard over the years, before I even started wearing makeup to clear my skin up because one of the things is I need to feel confident WITHOUT the makeup. My skin has changed a lot over the years in regards to getting a little older and the climates of where I have and currently lived. At this point in my life my skin is normal/dry and so I have learned to treat my skin per my skin type. Often times before I thought all products worked for all skin types but once I started researching and buying products based on my specific skin type a lot of things started to change.
My skincare routine is very simple:
Peter Thomas Roth 24k Cleansing Butter– To take off my makeup gently and do so effectively without taking the moisture out of my skin. I only use this when I take off my makeup and honestly I don’t wear makeup all the time so there are days when I don’t use it.
Shea Moisture African Black Soap– I personally like the bar form because it’s easier the travel with, I use this everyday. I swear by this stuff it really gets my skin clean while not making my skin feel duper dried out after using it.
Shea Moisture Problem Skin Toner– I use this to tone my skin, and keep any acne problems at bay. Some people don’t use toners, and some do it’s completely up to you.
Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask– This. Stuff. Is. Life. I don’t really need to say more. I use this once a week in the shower and it really does help brighten the skin while at the same time making it smooth and moisturized. A true gem!
Mahogany Naturals Hydrating Repair Oil– I use this stuff faithfully! AM and PM everyday, it’s PERFECT for the cold weather and works GREAT for dry skin! It has this soothing smell that’s relaxing too!
So that’s my skincare routine, very simple, as I said before for me it’s best to have a simple skincare routine so that I can do it everyday instead of getting lazy or getting overwhelmed with products.Let me know some of your favorites down below; I’m a skincare product whore so I’m forever changing my routine when I get bored with products.
