6 BEAUTY TIPS FOR CLEAR SKIN

It took me a while to learn my skin and create a regimen. However, there are some non product beauty tips for clear skin that I’ve adopted to help keep my skin clear. 5 NON BEAUTY RELATED SKIN CARE TIPS The first thing to do is learn your skin type, then learn what products work for you, and lastly, be consistent. You must be consistent to achieve results.

Tip#1-Limit Alcohol
If you want to dry your skin out, drink excessive amounts of alcohol. Too much consumption, dehydrates the skin, thus leaving the skin to begin sagging, creating wrinkles, and causes breakouts. Also the lack of hydration causes your skin to look dull, grey, and lifeless. Notice I said too much. An occasional drink here and there is ok. If you do have a drink, drink double the amount of water to flush out your system. Another good way to flush out the system is to sweat it out. So a good workout to get you sweaty will help.

Tip#2-Don’t Touch Your Face
This one was hard for me. For someone who works in an office it’s very easy to rest your face in your hands. This causes all the natural oils from your hands and bacteria to soak into the skin. Not only touching your face with hands, make sure to wipe your phone often because it rest on the skin while talking, and don’t let others touch your face.

Tip#3-Keep Hair Out of Face
We use a lot of product in our hair. I know for me, any kind of hair on my face I will immediately breakout. The hair sprays, oils, and serums can effect our skin if we consistently allow our hair to rest on our face.

Tip#4-Change Your Pillow Case Often
I’ve heard some women say they sleep on their back to keep their face off the pillow. But at some point our face will touch the pillow. I’m personally a side sleeper, so inevitably my face will touch the pillow. Once again, the oils from the hair and product will transfer onto the skin. Changing as often as you can, will help eliminate unwanted breakouts.

Tip#5-Limit Sugar and Dairy
This is personal for me. Once I eliminated sugary drinks and dairy from my diet I noticed a huge difference in my skin. Lots of soda, candy, dairy, and sweets can cause breakouts that leave scars and discoloration. Remember whatever we put into our body comes out in our skin. That is with the good and bad.

Tip#6-Don’t Stress and Worry
Yes, I know this is very difficult to do. But Stress and Worry wears on our skin worse than makeup. Sometimes we can Stress so bad, it wears on our pores, saggy skin, redness, dark circles, breakouts, lines, wrinkles, and even swelling. When faced with difficult times it’s most important to focus on our self care more. Spending extra time on ourselves in challenging times, refocus our attention on something we can control.

In addition to these tips keep your regimen simple and listen to your skin. It will tell you what you need. Good all round skin care is in our daily habits.

5 NON BEAUTY RELATED SKIN CARE TIPS

After many years of breakouts and product trials I’m finally comfortable in my “skin”. Just like everyone else, I researched how to get glowing skin a million times. For me, what I figured out was it’s in the non beauty product related details that helps you achieve your goals.

  1. Your diet plays a huge role in how your skin looks. You can have the most expensive products, but if you don’t take care of your skin from within then you’re wasting your money. Having a colorful diet, lots of water, and natural vitamins comes through the skin.
  2. Having the proper amounts of sleep helps you achieve your glowing skin goals. Just like our bodies, our skin is rejuvenated nightly. That night cream won’t work if you don’t sleep. Not to mention, lack of sleep creates puffiness, dark circles, and redness to begin with.
  3. Stress contributes to the breakdown in our skin. The more we Stress, the more breakouts we are going to have. When we stressed, we aren’t sleeping, eating right, or keeping up with our routine like we should. Don’t wear the worry and Stress on your face. Let things go. Happy Sunday AND LET GO
  4. Using too many products can cause a reaction. Just because every influencer says you need a certain product doesn’t mean its going to work for you. Create a routine for you. What works for your friend may not work for you.
  5. Along with using too many products, using the wrong products can drastically damage your skin. For instance, I thought I had oily acne prone skin. In actuality, my skin is dry. Because I wasn’t moisturizing enough and properly, I was causing my skin to produce more sebum. Also I was using drying products to combat the oiliness, which only made my skin worse.

  6. Lastly, exercise and sweat those toxins out. Sweating out toxins is good for our skin. Let those pores open and release all the dirt, oil, and sweat.

The key here is to learn your skin. Start with a mild cleanser and see how it reacts. Then slowly incorporate another product. When we use too many products we can’t tell which one is causing the reaction. As your lifestyle changes so will your skin. Even from season to season, our skin changes. Having a clear understanding of your skin, will help you adjust accordingly.

SUMMER, BEAUTY, AND SELF CARE

It’s hot outside and there are some summer beauty self care practices that I like to do to help me get through to the next season. In no particular order, here are some of my tips, tricks, and essentials.SPRING SELF CARE TIPS YOU CAN DO NOW

  1. Exfoliation-Of course we all know the benefits of exfoliation and removing dead skin cells. For me, exfoliating my face at least 3x a week and my body everyday almost is essential for my skin. Because I love to take a walk 🧘🏾‍♀️ outside and get some natural vitamin d, the sweat, grime, and environment gets into my skin. I don’t stop there, because I do workout and sweat more in the summer, it’s essential for me to do a scalp exfoliation. Literally from head to toe exfoliation is important.
  2. Moisturize-I know this seems completely against the norm, but even in the warm months moisturizer🧴 is an important summer beauty self care habit. Especially after tip #1 in exfoliating, moisturizing afterwards plumps your skin back up. Opt for a light water gel moisturizer for your face, a light body moisturizer that isn’t too heavy, or you can use those in shower moisturizers. Moisture is key for youthful looking skin from head to toe.
  3. Fragrance-We all still want to smell good. We are going lighter on the products as well as clothing. Go for a mild fragrance the last all day. I am a huge fan of Philosophy Pure Grace. This is a classic and timeless fragrance that walks with you all day. Also one thing about Pure Grace is you can layer it with other light fragrances.
  4. Colorful Diet-Lots of fruits, veggies, 🥗and water. You can go for fruit salads. Play around with many different kinds of green salads. Also a great refresher is fruit infused water. DIY Cucumber Lemon Water GREAT REFRESHERStaying hydrated often and daily is important to your summer self care. Not to mention, the more colorful your palette, the more vitamins and nutrients help with your skin and hair.
  5. Sunscreen-Please do not skip out on the sunscreen. Make sure to keep it on your hands while you’re driving. Also on your arm that sits under the window while you’re driving. Of course face and neck while exposed. If it’s quite hot, opt to not go out in the peak hours .
  6. Mani & Pedi-Have fun with your mani and pedi. 💅🏾Play with colors, patterns, and designs. Keep them fresh and show your personality through your mani and pedi. Going back to tip #1, always keep a pumice stone in the shower to ensure your feet stay smooth all summer long.
  7. Minimal Makeup-Keep your 💄 routine light and simple. Let your natural glow and skin come through. After moisturizer and sunscreen, enhance you beauty with a few products. Brow gel, mascara, primer that blurs, and a nice hot pink lipstick. Or shade of your choice. In the summer I always love to go bold on the lipstick.
  8. Fun-Enjoy your summer and have fun. 🤽🏾‍♀️No matter if you’re hanging out in the backyard or going on a vacation elsewhere. Soak up the sun and enjoy your life. You only get one. You’re not going to get summer 2021 back again. There aren’t any redo’s.

That’s all for my summer beauty self care essentials tips and tricks. As always, take care of yourself mentally and emotionally first. Then let the beauty on the inside shine through and glow on the outside. Have a great summer. Be safe!!!!!!

I’m back at it again. Rotating some oldie but goodie and affordable beauty products I’m loving right now is my thing. These are some products that I’ve decided to give another try. Also there are some that I picked up on a whim because they were on sale. 5 THINGS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW

Freeman Deep Clearing Manuka Honey & Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask +Cleanser.
This is my first time trying this cleanser/mask and its AMAZING!!!!!! I picked it up for $3.99 and its worth the price of a luxury beauty mask. My preference is to use it as a mask at least 3x a week. I apply it to clean damp skin and let it set for about 15 minutes. Upon rinsing with warm water my skin is soft, pore less, blemish free, breakout free, and hydrated. If you are wanting a cleanser that is a 2-n-1, helps with breakouts, dryness, clogged pores, texture, or blemishes, give this a try.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser
This is my second time trying this exfoliating cleanser. I must say I’ve been successful this go around. Before when I purchased it, I had experienced dryness and burning of the eyes. After about two weeks of using this in morning, I love how glowy and soft my skin is in the morning. I don’t have problems with the dryness or burning of the eyes. The exfoliation is small enough to where it doesn’t irritate my skin or cause redness. However, I will say I use this about every other morning. Side Note: On the days I don’t use this I use the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Gel. Once again for under $10, if you want soft, supple, and exfoliated skin, give this a try.

No.7 Resurfacing Peel.
For some time now I’ve been realizing I need to incorporate some treatments to my skin care routine. I’ve been a lover of No.7 already so I got this Resurfacing Peel in a goodie bag. This is a bonus booster to my routine. This helps my everyday products work better and how they are supposed to. My skin appears more soft, dewy, and my dark spots has drastically faded. I use this once a week, coupled with my other skin care. This peel is on the pricey side of drugstore, at $32.99 at Target. However, this will last you a while especially if you only use it once or twice a week.

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Soap
Little fact about me, is that I’ve moved back to bar soaps. They are mild, last a long time, and have an endless supply of scents. This has been my all time favorite bar soap. Your skin is clean, fresh, and doesn’t feel dry. Furthermore, for only $5 you can have this bar for a while.

Dickinsons Hydrating Toner with Rosewater
So this is another product I revisited. The first time around I didn’t see any results and felt that it dried my skin. However, after looking at it in my cabinet, I decided to give it another try. Well, I’m in love with it. I’ve noticed a difference in my pores being smaller. My skin doesn’t have texture, and I feel it helps my serums, mists, and moisturizer work better. I use it morning and night for the best results. I haven’t experienced any dryness or burning. This toner will definitely be repurchased. As you can see in the photo I’m just about done with this bottle.

The last month or so I noticed a difference in my skin and I had to think of what I was doing differently. I always love trying new products, revisiting some old ones, and adding to my routine to give my skin a boost. Especially as seasons change. If you are needing some extra TLC or just want a boost in your routine, give these products a try. I’m a firm believer in you don’t have to spend a lot of money on beauty products to get amazing results. These are just some of my affordable beauty products I’m loving right now, if you have any more suggestions please let me know.
