My Inexpensive skincare routine

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

 Sometime ago I got asked to share my skin care routine,not like the skin is perfect but it looks pretty reasonable considering the heat is unbearable,i just had a baby so hormones and I wear makeup a lot.The thing is I have never had problem skin except during my puberty days so if you have acne prone skin or any other issues with your skin some of these might just be a waste of time but i'll say it doesn't hurt to try.

 Skincare is a lot of work for me especially with two children,at the end of the day all I really want to do after putting them to bed is fall flat on my face and sleep till morning hence the reason my routine is pretty straight forward and easy.
At the end of any day especially on days I wear makeup out I use baby wipes to take off my makeup.I put some of my Tara makeup remover on it.I do this because I don't want oil alone on my face since my skin is a bit oily so the mix of the liquid in the wipes and the remover gives a nice balance for my face.

 The next thing I do is take my makeup eraser which you can get in makeup stores and clean off any leftover makeup.I love this towel because it's so soft and gets the job done even with waterproof makeup.You have to wet it,squeeze and then get rid of the makeup.The one thing I don't like about it is that some stains don't go off completely so with time it starts to look dirty.I wish I had bought the black one but oh well!

Next I exfoliate with the Eden apricot scrub.I've used this for so long alongside Clean &Clear but i've run out of that so i'm stuck with just this.I love how this smells and you can easily find this in many cosmetic stores, regular stores or supermarkets.

When i'm done exfoliating I use black soap(dudu osun) on my face without a sponge by the way just so i'm gentle on my skin.I swear by this soap for my face.I haven't had a problem with it since I started using it except that if you have a cut or any open wound it hurts like hell.Apart from that i'm good.

After that I go in with the Sleek neuskin reveal exfoliating night cream and the booster afterwards.I love this products because in the mornings my skin is visibly soft and feels as smooth as a baby's bum.It's so good I shared it on my Instagram page and even got featured on Sleek Nigeria's page sometime ago.I will definitely keep repurchasing.

 Simple,short and straight to the point.
