Summer Skincare Routine 2017

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.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil: A Love Story

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.
