3 min read

       I used to pray for times like this, to shine like this. 😉 So, I had to grind like this to GLOW like this. haha. But honestly, y’all I used to pray for clear and glowing skin. It wasn’t until I learned what makes my skin happy, that I was able to achieve this natural glow. 🙂 I’ve learned a lot about skin health within the past few years, but here are just a few of my tips.

first, WHAT ARE YOUR SKIN GOALS?

       What do you want your skin to look like 6 months from now? If you don’t have any goals, it’ll seem like you’re just using dozens of products, without making any progress.

MY SKIN GOALS:

REMEMBER

       Skincare isn’t just about the skin on your face. haha. You should properly take care of the skin on your entire body.

but, WAIT...

you can't start without knowing your skin type!!

1. LOOK AT THE INGREDIENTS

       It’s 2020, you need to be looking at the ingredients on your products, like you look at the nutrition label on your foods. It’s important to look at the ingredients, because some do more harm than good, depending on your skin type. 

MY FAVORITES

2. ALOE VERA & WITCH HAZEL

       Regardless of your skin type, these 2 products will work wonders! Individually and separately. Take a spritz bottle, and combine aloe vera with witch hazel. Shake it up, and use it daily. You can thank me later. 😉

3. STOP PICKING AT YOUR SKIN

       If you don’t listen to anything else on my list, LISTEN TO THIS! Girl, STOP TODAY! Picking at your skin leaves unwanted blemishes! 🙁 Trust me, once the blemishes are there, they are hard to get rid of.

4. PICK THE RIGHT MASK

       It’s good to have a variety of different face masks, but it’s important to know what each of these face masks do for your skin. And even more important to know which mask is best for your skin type.

5. DON'T OVER DO IT

       Although, having the right combination of products is important, you don’t want to over do it. Excessively cleaning, exfoliating, and adding new products can do more harm than good. It can lead irritation, and worsened breakouts.

  1. #3 is so important! I used to have really bad acne and I would pick at my skin a lot. I have a scar that everyone thinks is a mole now. Definitely don’t want to get stuck with those! Do you have any tips for removing dark spots?

  2. I absolutely loved this! In my skin care routine I don’t incorporate masks as much as I should. My last post only talked about the importance of vitamins but you make so much sense when it comes to masks! Thank you!

  3. okay, but can we talk about the amount of effort put into this post! ❤️❤️❤️ I have combination skin and try to do a facial routine at east once a week.I’m tryna be glowing after this quarantine

  4. This was good! My skin is one of my most toughest battles but you gave great information. Even the back link to the clear skin is in post was informative and I have been wondering about the jade roller so I hunk you’ve just sold me on it!

  5. Your post was jam packed with so many beneficial tips on how to help with skin issues. I can admit I’m one that picks. I know I need to stop, but seeing it in black and white made me feel bad, so I’m going to try my best to keep my hands from my face. I also want to start using aloe vera and witch hazel. Do you combine equal parts?

  6. This really helped me and my friend who are trying to get better at taking care of our skin! Thanks!
