Beautiful Skin Requires a Commitment NOT a Miracle πŸ§

There are 5 Simple Steps that have become apart of my daily routine in order to keep my skin popping! 😍

1. Cleanse

β€’ Washing your face with a cleanser, removing all of the dirt & oil from your face before you go to bed & when you wake up in the morning..twice a day is good.

2. Tone

β€’ Some people skip this step but it can be VERY important when removing the access oil and dirt from your pores.

3. Exfoliate

β€’ Exfoliating is very’s like a deep clean for your pores. It’s not recommended to do everyday but twice a week is always good! It leaves your skin glowing & feeling smooth.

4. Moisturize

β€’ No one wants dry skin! After being somewhat rough on your skin from cleansing it to exfoliating, can leave your skin looking dry. This is why it’s important to moisturize whether your using an actual moisturizing product or plain lotion, the skin needs to stay hydrated.

5. Drinking PLENY of Water

β€’ Drinking lots of water is not only good for your health but for your skin too! Remember, we ARE what we EAT/DRINK..that is why drinking a lot of soda or eating a lot of fried foods can affect your skin negatively. Water also helps keep your skin hydrated.

My Favorite Toner For The Summertime! (Combination Skin)

Oil Free Acne Stress Control

This toner works wonders on my skin! I usually use an all natural based toner on my skin but when I get lazy I use this product..

It gets deep into my pores & gets rid of access dirt I may have missed while washing my face.

It is from my FAVORITE & ONLY company I use (Neutrogena)

β€’Treats acne before it emerges

β€’Eliminates oil & shine

β€’Refreshes & soothes

After washing & drying my face, I take a cotton swab & cover it with the toner & apply it to my face like I’m removing makeup but what you really doing is removing any access dirt from your pores.. Once it dries, apply a moisturizer.

If you suffer from combination skin this is the way to go for the summer time!
