Perhaps you don’t have problematic skin, to begin with, but if you’re under-cleansing or over-cleansing, you could be putting yourself at risk of cystic acne, rosacea, or eczema. If you’re not sure about how to correctly cleanse your skin at the end of the day, read on to find out the best skincare routine practices you can easily incorporate at night. Use a pre-cleanse productAfter a long night out, you can’t simply wipe your makeup off your face and call it a day. You’re going to want to get rid of extra dirt and grime with an oil-based cleansing balm. Simply work it into your fingers, add a little water, and apply it all over your face. Use the right productsWashing your face twice a day with a barrier-friendly cleanser can effectively remove dirt without stripping away your natural oils and other good bacteria. Don’t overwash your faceBelieve it or not, washing your face more than 2 or 3 times a day can be detrimental to your skin. Stripping it of its natural oils can cause it to overproduce oils later on. If you went about your day without wearing makeup and slathered on only a little bit of sunscreen, you’re better off skipping the cleanser and simply washing with water. Even if your cleanser is the best face wash on the market, you’ll want to give your skin the occasional break from products you use religiously. Get the water to the right temperatureIf you’ve heard about how hot water opens your pores whereas cold water closes them, this is actually a myth. Pores don’t have muscles to open or close at all. Hot water may feel relaxing on the skin but can actually cause it to dry out and overproduce sebum. Sebum is an oil naturally produced by the body to keep it moisturized, but too much of it can cause you to break out. Use lukewarm water to wash your face. Don’t over-exfoliate Exfoliation is a great way to get rid of dead skin, but overdoing it can cause abrasions on your face. It can also lead to dehydration and inflammation, so limit your exfoliating to once or twice a week. Don’t rub your face dryWhen cleansing your face, pat—don’t rub. Rubbing can tug at your skin and damage its elastin, which can potentially lead to wrinkles, crow’s feet, or irritation. If you’re using a towel, be sure to designate a towel that you use exclusively on your face to prevent bacteria transfer. Moisturize regularlyTo allow your skin to best absorb your moisturizing products, apply them right after you wash your face. Waiting until your face is completely dry to apply serums and treatment products can keep the product from sinking into your skin and leave you feeling greasy. Don’t spend a fortune on cleanser The best skincare products out there will sometimes be a little costly, but you don’t have to shell out a fortune to find one that works for you. Stick to one that is simple and contains natural ingredients that can provide your skin with long-term benefits. Conclusion:When shopping for the right cleansers, serums, and moisturizers, it can be tempting to purchase those with the highest price tag. After all, you’ll be getting what you pay for right? This isn’t always the case, so get to know your skin before you go on a shopping spree, and be sure you’re already incorporating a healthy routine into your daily regimen.

this is a DRAWSTRING ponytail 👀🔥
this is a DRAWSTRING ponytail 👀🔥
Drawstring ponytails have come a lonnnnng way! I have to admit, I never thought drawstring ponytails could look good, but bay-bee I was WRONG! I’m loving the #Indique - Remix Organic Curl Ponytail[products]#[FiveStars] First of all, it’s human hair, unlike a lot of ponytail extensions. All of your hair is protected in a little cap, which I love, and it’s versatile! One major note: when you receive this hair it’s not fluffed. I tried to finger comb it, and that wasn’t the best method as I had some shedding and tangling. However, when I sprayed this hair down with water I had NO issues! This hair is dyed, so some of the dye may transfer to your fingers while styling it. All of these styles were created with this ponytail 🙌🏾 It’s the perfect way for me to turn a bad hair day around real quick! I really appreciate seeing quality textured ponytail extensions on the market. Swipe through to see the styles! I even did a braid out on this ponytail 😍 BOMB! What’s your favorite style? Full styling guide on the blog, link in bio! #gifted
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
cystic acne progress
cystic acne progress
cystic acne is a journey like no other. It’s unpredictable and frustrating. But, you have to celebrate small wins whenever possible. almost 2 weeks ago, I woke up with my cheek severely inflammed having sprouted a ton of cysts seemingly overnight. big, red, painful ones. unfortunately, my cystic acne is very much hormone, stress, and diet driven which makes it hard to manage at times. today, I can finally appreciate that I was successful in bringing the inflammation down. eight days may seem like a long time but in the world of cystic acne, that’s huge progress! It looks and feels so much more comfortable. if you use tretinoin, stick with it! I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel and while no day is perfect when you’re prone to cystic acne, it does get better. feel free to ask me all your cystic acne questions!

CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?
