moisturizing habits

Hello and Welcome back!

How many of you skip out on moisturizing your face/skin after a shower? Hopefully not many because moisturizing the skin is just as important as cleansing it! Moisturizing keeps the skin from getting dehydrated, makes you glow and closes the pores to keep dirt out! Even in the Summer, it’s incredibly important to moisturize. Finding the right moisturizer was the most challenging for me, being as though I have insanely oily skin.

After doing research, I found that the use of argan oil on my face works best for my skin! If you’re worried about if argan oil will make your face greasy then think again! It’s so amazing that it was even great for helping clear up my acne! Not only that, it’s natural, vanishes dark spots and decreases chances of wrinkles. It’s important to check out how heavy or light oils are (depending on if you have oily skin, combination skin or dry skin.) Once you start moisturizing you’ll start to experience a softer, clearer, brighter face!

Ashy knees can be embarrassing. Lotions don’t last, so you find yourself moisturizing throughout the day. Which can be so annoying! I love using coconut oil on my skin after a shower for that reason. It hydrates my skin, keeping me moisturized all day! Not to mention it smells amazing, makes your skin glow and feel so smooth! Which do you prefer? Lotion or oil? Comment below.

 

Is that soap right for you?

Do you ever experience really dry, rough skin after getting out of the shower? The toxins in your soap could be the culprit! Some of the harmful ingredients found in soaps can affect your hormones, cause allergic reactions and dryness. Most soaps on the market eat away at your skin, strips your skin of its natural oils and ages you faster. Sometimes you can still experience dryness after putting tons of lotion on.

So if you aren’t already using Black Soap, next time you go to your local market pick some up! Black Soap treats acne, vanish dark spots, lightly cleanses the skin to prevent stripping you of your natural oils. If you want other than black soap be sure to read ingredients and be aware of harmful toxins that can irritate the skin, such as sodium lauryl which is usually found in detergents, parabens which affect your hormones and diethanolamine which can obstruct nutrients. Black soap promotes smooth, soft and moisturized skin. It has truly been a skin curer for me and my experiences. I hope I’ve been helpful, come check back later for daily tips!
