Over the past couple of years, believe it or not I haven’t had the perfect skin! My skin is very oily, but because of my diet, environment, and amongst other factors I started to develop dark spots on my face. Trust me, I know how stressful it is buying products that absolutely DO NOT work well. Taking care of my skin has been a #1 priority for me especially this year. I’ve gotten so many questions throughout my social media about my skin regimen and I promise you guys I’ve been consistently using black soap + cocoa butter over the course of 12 months as well as this natural exfoliate mix and I’ve seen amazing results. After obsessing over skincare articles and buying products that absolutely do not work for my melanin, I’ve decided the natural way is the best way for me.
Here is a list of things to do for clear skin:
-Clean Your Make Up Brushes
-Do Not Sleep With Make Up
-Drink Plenty of Water
-Change Your Diet
-Sanitize Your Smart Phone
-Get Your Beauty Rest
-Fruits & Veggies
-Keep Your Hands Out of Your Face
Most Importantly BELIEVE your skin will clear, keeping a positive attitude makes a huge difference!
As shown in my skincare tutorial here’s a list of things I used and their uses:
1. Baking Soda- For oily and acne-prone skin types, baking soda can work as a great all-natural exfoliant.
2. Brown Sugar-A natural moisturizer so it absorbs moisture from your environment and puts it into your skin. Hydrating and conditioning, brown sugar helps to keep the moisture locked in. It also guards your skin from destructive toxins while maintaining a healthy glow.
3. Coconut Oil- This has over 100 uses! Vitamin E, cleans out whatever is blocking the pores. The oil combines with the grainy, exfoliating substance and leaves your skin with an even color, closes the pores, and leaves skin with a very soft texture.
4. Raw Honey- Helps moisturize, fight aging, and fight bacteria. Plus, it’s loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and healing compounds.
