Black Girl Summer GLO SkinCare 

Hello to all my Queens: 👑 

Its our season, Summer 2017! #ISSAFACT #Summer2017 

Since it’s Summer that means taking care of your skin is a serious matter! When I mean protect our melanin skin, I mean protect your melanin skin, regardless of the shade you are. Skin is skin, and our skin can still be damage if not taken seriously. Here are some of my tips and recommended products to have fresh glowing skin during this Sunny, Hot Season!

  1. I use 100% Natural Black Soap, I get mine from the Beauty supply store for $2 which is completely affordable.
  2. Witch Hazel Toner, it cleanses the rest of the dirt on your face but also can be used as a makeup remover as well.
  3. Then of course a Good ASS moisturizer, to set that Skin straight! I use the Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer or Cetaphil moisturizer since their both good for combination and oily skin.
  4. FACE Mask are your BFF! I use two different facemask by a company called Freeman’s and so far I like the two I bought since my skin is oily, dry and combination prone skin. They leave are skin feeling soft! Also if you have skin like me, you might want to do mask 2-3 times a week just because our skin is really sensitive and overuse can be harmful.
  5. 💦 WATER! 💦Drink Water Ladies! I’m not trying to sound cliché but water is so important not only for your skin but your bodies crave it. I drink about 60 oz. daily and sometimes more which sounds like a lot but its like drinking 4 full water bottles all day. If water isn’t your thing then start small and gradually move up because its good for you!
  6. Lotion! Keep your body moisturized to keep that skin glowing and/or Sparkly Lotion too!
  7. DIY Scrub; Coffee Scrub, Sugar Scrub help exfoliate your skin and leaves your skin bright and glowing!
  8. Rose Water- leaves your skin fresh and bright 🌹
  9. Eat Fruits! 🍓 Fresh Fruit is good for diet which improves your skins natural glow.
