Hey Beautiful People,
I am here with my updated Skin Care Routine. Whats even better is that I was able to make a video about it explaining all the good stuffs. I wrote a post similar to this about 8 months ago, My everyday skin care routine. However its safe to say a lot has changed and I have come a long way since. I have found the right balance with my Skin Care Routine. Where I do combine both organic and non organic skin care routines. This routine works wonders on my skin and my skin has never looked this good ever since I started this newly and improved Skin Care Routine.
It wouldn’t be a repetition if I went on and on about the Skin Care Routine, I mean that’s what the video is about. See Link above. However I wanted to break down all the products I use on my skin and why they tend to work wonders on my skin. With that being said. Lets jump right into it.
Skin Care Routine: 1. Make-Up Remover
If am wearing make-up then this has to be the first step, to wipe off the make-up. Neutrogena wipes are amazing and gentle to the skin without striping off the natural oil of the skin. And if am out on the neutrogena make-up wipe removers. I sometimes switch to Pamper’s wipe removers. which basically do the same thing. For some people they use apple cider vinegar or olive oil to remove their make up, pick your poison. LOL
Skin Care Routine: 2. Facial Wash
For my Facial wash I use the African Black soap and the Clarisonic. I have changed from my clean and clear facial wash, incase you didn’t pick that part. I was really skeptical about the African Black Soap (ABS) and I decided to take a leap of face and try it out. Boy, Best decision of my life. For the ingredients, ABS is made from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such a plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and Shea tree bark.
It cleans the skin gently without striping it of it natural moisture and its good for people with rosacea, rashes, dryness, acne breakouts, fade skin discoloration, dark spots and acne scars, reduce discomfort for psoriasis and eczema, and helps relieve skin rashes among others. If you need fewer toxins on your skin, ABS is a great purchase.
Skin Care Routine: 3. Clarisonic Facial Spin Brush
The clarisonic spin brush played a huge role in my skin care routine. The Clarisonic is a sonic cleansing brush that gently exfoliates, stimulates circulation, cleans deep pores, and helps your skin care products to penetrate and work more effectively. And, there is now a new “head” for it to deep clean pores for those with oiler skin and large pores. Regular cleansing can sometimes leave behind dirt and oil trapped in pores. That’s when the Magic of clarisonic brush is fully in power. It leaves your skin feeling radiant and healthy looking.
Skin Care Routine: 4. Facial Cleanser.
This hasn’t changed at all, i still stay loyal to my Clear Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent. It works just as well. For those who don’t know the use of a cleanse here is a quick over view. A cleanser is a facial care product that is used to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other types of pollutants from the skin of the face. This helps to unclog pores and prevent skin conditions such as acne.
Skin Care Routine: Exfoliation
If am going organic then I will use the coffee beans, some sugar and few drops of olive oil and honey to scrub my face. For a non organic deep intense cleaning I tend to reach out for my facial scrub which can be gentle on the skin safe & to use twice a week. This is the clear essence Complexion facial scrub. Its main purpose is to remove excess oil, dirt and most importantly dead cells that tend to be clogged in the skin. Hence allows better absorption of the facial treatment. For my lips, I do a DIY lip scrub by combining Honey, some essential oils, cocoa powder and sugar.

Skin Care Routine: Toner
I love Facial toners. If I were to choose two facial routines to keep it would be a cleanser and toner. Apart from making sure everything is flawlessly clean. A toner tends to nourish the skin and help in having a balanced skin tone all over the face and neck areas. At the same time shrinking the size of the pores. The miracle of 21st century you guys. The toner am using is the Pore Refining by Neutrogena, I updated from my Even Tone Toner by Palmer’s.
Skin Care Routine: Moisturizer
At night after my skin care routine I use skin therapy oil by cocoa butter. Which helps with reducing wrinkles, dark spot, scars, uneven tones, aging skin and adds on any lost moisture to the skin. And as off during the day I use Vaseline if my skin feels like it needs more moisture or I use the Neutrogena body lotion.
