1.) Indian Healing Clay: My all-in-one go to. Indian Healing Clay tightens your skin and forces blood circulation into your face. It’s quite uncomfortable but necessary due to it’s benefits. Can either be mixed with water or ACV (apple cider vinegar). I would suggest the ACV if you struggle with acne or any facial yeast patches as ACV is popular for it’s antibacterial capabilities. If you plan on purchasing an ACV, get the one with the good bacteria inside called “Mother“. Here’s the one I use. Many rave this helps clear pores. I must be one of the unlucky ones, I don’t have that advantage. The profit alone of blood circulation is my only reason of use. That itself is enough.
2.) Pura D’or Argan Oil: Used as an exfoliant when mixed with brown sugar and coconut oil (optional). I exfoliate every two weeks.
3.) Foxbrim 100% Castor Oil: Castor oil has many uses. Especially it’s popular use for eyelash growth. (Not too sure if that’s true or not. I’ve tried it and wasn’t consistent enough to have my own opinion). Anyhow, I use castor oil for my eyebrows. When an eyebrow hair has fallen off and a new one is growing in, I get this uncontrollable itchy sensation. The castor oil relieves the itch quickly! Def a gem! I’m sure there’s an added bonus for my eyebrow hairs.
4.) My DIY Face Wash Roller Bottle: Used daily, moistly mornings if not applied at night. Ingredients can be found in a recent post here.
5.) Cetaphil Moisturizing Face Lotion: This tiny bottle was purchased at the travel section in Target. Used after showering due to my skin drying up quickly soon after. Cetaphil lotion is a great moisturizer that doesn’t leave that oily look or feel. My little one get’s a dab every so often for her mild baby acne.
6.) ArtNaturals 2.5% Retinol: For anti-aging purposes and minimizing my large pores. I know very little about retinol (Vitamin A). I’ve learned retinol products come in different strengths. Example: 0.01%, 0.02% & etc. Such bottle came with it’s companion the Vitamin C down below in a gift set. Inside it contains vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, and botanical extracts. All key nutrients to anti-aging.
7.) ArtNaturals Vitamin C: Great skin hydrator and anti-aging serum. If not using the Retinol up top, I reach for this one. I can’t even front, this it my lazy go to bottle. If I’ve had a seriously rough night/morning or on my monthly cycle, once I’ve cleansed my face, Vitamin C safes the day.
EXTRA: Water. Water is pivotal to skin care.
