Although summer just began, I’ve already developed and have been using my summer skincare routine. This heat and humidity has already showed up and out.
The older I’ve gotten, the more my skin changes. In my teens and early 20’s, my skin was just oily. In my 20s, my skin was more combination/oily. Now, it depends on the season. In the fall, it’s normal/oily, during the winter, it’s dry/normal, and it’s normal to oily in spring. However, in the summer, my skin is just plan ol’ oily; no slash. So, I have to use products designed for oily skin. This is how I justify having over 5 different types of facial cleansers in my beauty cabinet. However, that’s another post for another day. Keep reading to see the products that are making up my morning summer skincare routine.
When people find out I’m an occasional beauty blogger, they always have questions. The main question they ask is usually”What product should I use for xyz?” and I usually have an answer. However, the one question that I’ve been getting recently is what are the main skincare products you need. So, let’s have a quick chat about the basic skincare products you need.
This post is for the beginners out there who want to build a staple skincare regimen, but don’t where to start. If that’s you or someone you know, then keep reading.
Not one to brag, but my skin has been flourishing over these past few months. I’m not quite sure I can pinpoint what caused me to reach this lifelong goal, but I’m grateful. For the most part, I think the fact that my eating habits have changed more for the good over the past year and I consume crazy amounts of water. Whatever it is, it’s working. Unfortunately, this weekend I had an old friend stop by on my cheek; a cystic pimple. Luckily, it’s not staying around long, thanks to my multiple ways I have to treat cystic pimples.
There are many ways to treat a cystic pimple, but I have 3 go-to thing I use to treat and get them up out of my life.
A couple of months ago, I had a less than average wax job at a wax bar by a big makeup brand in a bigger makeup store. If you know the players in that sentence, please know that I still love those brands. However, they did your girl and her brows wrong this one Saturday. However, my brows and I were able to regrow and prosper again thanks to patience and one product. That product is Jamaican Black Castor oil.
I decided to try it on my brows and voila, brows are back! Jamaican Castor Oil has been a blessing to my life for the past couple of years. Trust me, this oil has helped me with more that my brows and probably for you, too. There are so many benefits to this oil and I’m going to share a couple of my favorites with you.
For the past few days, I’ve been sick with one of those stuffy head, itchy throat, and sip hot tea all day types of colds. It was horrible. Not to mention that it was during my scheduled vacation days from work. Despite some occasional coughing, I’m back to about 90%. So, to help feel better, last night I decided to reward my skin and give it a facial. After browsing the vast collection of face masks, I decided to use the Aztec Secret Indian Clay. I’ve only used this mask once, but can’t remember why. Probably, because powder face masks aren’t as quick as the sheet masks that I’ve been boo-ed up with for the past year or so.
Powder versions of skincare products are still fairly new, including powder face cleansers. However, powder face mask are started to gain traction. No matter your skin type or issues, there is a powder face mask out there for you.
