Hello lovelies…I have gotten some requests to share my skin regimen, so today I am sharing key things that have been treating this ladies skin right! I have combination skin where the T zone gets really oily (shakes fist in the air) and the outsides can get dry especially in the colder weather. I get an occasional pimple which then turns into a nasty blemish. So here’s what has helped mys skin drastically:
*First off, I drink lots of water, eat healthy eliminating simple sugars because sugar breeds bacteria in the body, and I take vitamin supplements, greens, and fish oil every day without fail. Food packed with omega 3′s is awesome for the skin. I Just started juicing and that is like my everything right now!
*I change my satin pillow case often, 2x a week
*Wash my hair every 7-10 days because my dirty hair has caused some pimples, especially around the forehead and neck/jawline area.
* I use nothing but natural soap on my face and body. My favorite out of the many black soaps I have been trying is Shea Moisture’s Organic African Black Soap (this soap can be purchased online or at Target & Walgreens). This soap is the bizness! It has faded any blemish I’ve gotten in a matter of days, brings blackheads to the surface, tightens pores, and has kept me bump free. It also isn’t as drying as the other black soaps I’ve tried (all black soaps are not created equally, so try a few of them and see which one works best).
* I use nothing but all natural moisturizers on my face and body. For my face I love Aubrey Organics Vegecol with Aloe Moisturizing Cream (this cream can be purchased online or at The Vitamin Shoppe). It penetrates the skin immediately and isn’t greasy or pore clogging. Its an awesome moisturizer.
* On my body I use shea butter during cold months and almond oil during warmer months
* During the cold months when my skin gets super dry I apply plain cold pressed clear castor oil to my face and stand over a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes, letting the steam hit it. Then I take a wash cloth and rotate, scrubbing off any dry skin. I rinse off with black soap and water, and wahla! Instant at home facial!
