Hello everyone! Sorry for taking such a long break, I have been struggling a lot with finding inspiration 😦 But I have finally returned ! I’m also very proud to announce I have reached over 50 followers!!!! It may seem like such a small number but to me, it’s like the entire wolrld!
Anyways, here is my skincare routine!
Step 1: Removing Makeup
Now there are three ways I like to remove my makeup. When I’m super tired and lazy I just use a plain old makeup wipe. Preferably neutrogena wipes. If I have a little more time and energy, I turn to my trusted bio makeup remover from Paris. This stuff has the strength to power through stubborn mascara! However it doesn’t remove all makeup so you will have to go in with something else. Finally, my coveted coconut oil. Coconut oil has soo many uses and makeup removing is just one. I can’t say enough good things about it. Another alternative to coconut oil is olive oil, which everyone tends to have in their pantry!
Step 2: Cleansing
Next step is cleansing! First I always turn to African Black Soap. Black soap has anti-bacterial properties and gets rid of dark spots and acne. Many people have said this is a game changer in the skincare world. Then I might create a scrub out of baking soda and water to get my pores clean. Baking soda is known to treat blackheads.
Step 3: Toning
I know this technically isn’t a toner but I’ve been using oxy-pads as a “toner”. Can’t really say too much about them. I don’t feel like they make a difference. *shrugs* Then I use witch hazel. I use Humphreys Lilac Skin Softening Witch Hazel. Like the title says, it makes my skin super soft. In terms of my hyper pigmentation, I would say yes, I have seen improvements since introducing this product into my routine.
Step 4: Moisturizing
To wrap things up I like to use 99% Aloe Vera gel for my dark spots. You can find this at any organic store. Tip: put this on any pimple for an overnight cure! Next I spray Lush’s Tea Tree Water all over my face. This is a really light moisturizer with the benefits of tea tree oil. Finally I top it off with all natural tea tree oil! And that’s my skincare routine!
Hope you guys found this somewhat helpful! Stay tuned for more!
