Treat yo Face right!

Hey ya’ll!

I wanted to take you through my daily beauty prep routine; both day and night.

We’ll start with my nighttime rituals because to me how I take care of my face at night determines how good it will look the next morning.


Remember with all of these steps to make sure you don’t rub your face hard and
use smaller circular motions!


  • Step one – remove all makeupThe best way I found to do this is with Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil – trust me I have tried everything from wipes to olive oil and this stuff is awesome! It’s the only makeup remover I will buy. 

  • Step three – was away the gunk
    • I haven’t found a holy grail face wash, so let me know what you use! Right now I am switching between  Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel and Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel. Honestly I’m not in love with either. The purifying gel strips my skin and I’m always left with little bumps but I think it would work better for someone with oily skin. The Peter Roth cleansing gel makes my skin baby soft and gets rid of the little bumps but has given more breakouts, the painful deep kind. Besides the breakouts my skin is my glowy than ever. It would probably work better for someone with a little be drier skin than mine
  • Step two – exfoliation
    • Most people will pay a pretty penny for a good exfoliation but guess what-the best one is homemade from things you have in your kitchen! Just mix 3 parts sugar to 1 part lemon juice and if you need more exfoliation add some epsom salt. Yes, it does create a sugar syrup eventually, especially if you keep it in your shower like I do, but just drain it with your hand every now and then. I’m telling you, it would have to be priest blessed holy water exfoliation cream for me to stray from my homemade recipe. The sugar isn’t as drying as salt and some other scrubs and the lemon is a natural brightener!
  •  Step four – pat dry face with a clean towel that isn’t too rough
  • Step five – apply a moisturizerNeutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion, 1.7 Ounce (Pack of 3)
    • Right now I
      am using Neutrogena
      Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion
      . Its good, not amazing like it claims to be. Honestl
      y, I bought it because it was $6 at Wal-Mart one day! (lol) It’s good in the fact because it doesn’t make my face peel or dry out. Is it helping breakouts…eh I don’t know. I’m not going to repurchase and will be trying new things!
  • The eye cream I’ve been using is  Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream sampler I got from Sehpora and OMG if I could afford the real thing I would I love it!!!!


Take a breather from all these steps an enjoy a little tune by my soul sister TSwift. 


Ok, so on to morning routine

  •  Step one – light exfoliation with the lemon sugar scrub, or if you want to go on the lighter rout skip this step and add a wash cloth to the next step
  • Step two – use a light face wash with cool water again I’ve been going back and fourth between  Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel and Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel and not loving either but hey you already know their pros and cons so you use what you like!
  • Step three – light towel dry. Leave your skin a little damp to rub your lotion in as well as eye cream
  • Step four – let the lotions sink in for a good minute or so and then use a primer
  •  Step five – live yo life sista friend! Do your makeup or go bare face! Whatever makes you happy!

My routines are almost ever-changing because I’m always trying new things and now that I have shown ya’ll the basics I can fill you in on new things I try! Till next time! XOXO

  1. Great Post. On my list of “I need to get my life together” is the get a better skin regime to-do. So, because I already have super oily skin, I skip moisturizer. I have tried quiet a few, from the very cheapest Clean and Clear to Lancôme and they always make me break out. Any suggestions??

    1. Skipping moisturizer actually will make your skin produce more oil. You need an oil free light weight hydration cream, not really a lotion. Also make sure your not over washing with a harsh face wash it can also make your skin produce more oil. Pretty much you want to trick your skin into thinking it doesn’t need to produce oil to hydrate your skin. So if you wanna skip moisturizer in the morning at least do a healthy amount at night and wash it off in the morning. Look for ingredients like vitamin C, lemongrass and willow bark extract.If you do use lotion in the morning use a mattifying. A brand most people like is Murad or a more natural base Origins. Your best bet is to go to Sephora and tell them what kind of skin you have and then ask for samples Use the little samples up one at a time and see what works best then buy it!
