Let's talk about skincare


Today i am going to show you guys my skincare routine and what products i use.
Before that, a small story about my skin...
Before i  started using cosmetics when i was 17, i had great skin, i got loads of compliments because of my even and smooth skin.
When i started to use make up, my classmates warned me that my skin might have breakdown's such a as pimples, blackheads and all nasty stuff, that is, if i don't take care of my skin.

I was kinda proud of my awesome skin genes, so i was like...there is noo~ way in hell, i would have breakdown.
But after 1 year of cosmetics usage and NOT taking proper care of skin, all shit started to happen.
I got scars and my pores were disgustingly big, especially in nose area. My mom warned me, either i start taking care of my skin, or stop using make up at once and for all....
Yes, that's an African mom for you, she decided what to do and what not! :P

So i started to take care of my skin more and more, firstly i started with high end products, really expansive products, but none of them worked on me, i got weird reactions from the products, which is weird because i am not allergic to anything at all. So i went for cheaper products such a as, baby oil and Vaseline.

In matter of time, all the scars faded away, and pores became smaller.
And when i saw the results, i got more excited about skincare.
I decided to stick with drugstore products.
And i can honestly say, my skin is back to what it was before i started using cosmetics.
No pores visible at all, even skin and smooth like silk.

1. Step I do is, clean my face with wet wipes, scentless wipes.
Even when i am not wearing make up, i feel like wet wipes take the oil away.

2. Step i use Cleanser, that is, to make sure i got rid away from all make up left overs that wet wipes didn't get rid off.

3. Is what is called "exfoliating" i think.
I do this twice a week, and this is mainly for getting rid of all born to be baby pimples.
I never had pimples in my life, but this product leaves my skin baby butt silk smooth.

4. I love toning, i use this product because it made all the pores in my skin to dissapear, all of them!
Also, this makes my skin glow in a healthy way, it just has this cool effect that makes your skin looks like you are alive... and not dull.

5. Is the last part which is moisturizing. Usually when i wake up, i use the toner only, i feel like i don't need to moisturize my skin after Toning, but at night i moisturize.

Gel scrub is something extra i do from times to times when i feel like bored.
I leave gel scrub on for a looong time, talking about 2-3h.
But it leaves my skin even more silky smooth. 

Thats all about my skincare.
