I’ve received many requests to post my skin care routine. This isn’t about naturally curly hair…but it’s just as important! If you’ve taken the time to ensure that your hair is naturally fly, it’s only right that it’s framing a clear and glowing face 😀

Like my hair regimen, my skin care routine is pretty simple. I don’t wear foundation, eye shadow, blush, etc. I stick to lip glosses (from Sephora or Mac) and the occasional eye liner and mascara (usually when I’m going out).

Since I don’t wear makeup, my cleansing routine is very simplistic. In the evenings, I gently scrub my face with Ponds Exfoliating Clean Sweep Cloths. I love these!!!! They have tiny beads on one side that deep clean pores and a smooth side that wipe away eye makeup. I then scoop up a pea sized amount of shea butter, emulsify it between my hands, and apply it to my face. This is a very minute amount of shea- if held to the light, your palms should have only the slightest sheen.

In the morning, after brushing my teeth, I rinse my face with water, blot dry, apply a teeny bit more shea butter, lip gloss, and I’m out the door 😀

I’m prone to a single HUGE zit, once a month in the center of my chin…you know what I mean! For that, I use Differin Gel (at night on my chin only) the week before and the week after I expect that pimple to appear ;0)
Remember, shea butter firms skin, prevents wrinkles, and helps to regenerate cells. More specifically, it helps reduce premature facial lines, dark spots, marks, minor scars, chapped lips, blemishes & bumps. Shea Butter also helps to maintain moisture & skin softness. It hasn’t clogged my pores one bit. Between the shea and the biotin/msm combo, my skin has been very happy for about 6 months.

Later Gators,
