What are your top 3 skin tips?
1.Cleansing your skin is one of the most important parts of skin care. Never go to sleep without cleansing your skin. Everyday your skin builds up dirt and debris on its surface. As time goes by this dirt and debris settles into pores. It stretches the pores, mixes with the skins oils and hardens into blackheads.
2.A weekly facial mask gives results. No matter your skin type, there is a facial mask suited for you. Usually used once or twice a week, a customized facial mask to deep down clean, tighten your pores, exfoliate, hydrate your skin and brighten your complexion.
3.Schedule Regular Facials. Do not touch your skin! Trying to remove a black head or a zit only results in scarring your face and infecting it. Come see me I’ll take care of it
What is your skin regimen? I change regarding the time of year and my skin needs. Right now my regimen is Cleanse skin day and night, I apply p50 toner day and night. Apply Elastine pure day and night and moisturiser day and night. I apply a mask once a week. Oh and cant forget my anti aging vitamins I religiously take them everyday!
What is your health and beauty ritual? I practice boxing 3 times a week to keep my body looking healthy and to give me energy. I drink lots of water, eat every 3 hours and take vitamins every day! One of my beauty rituals is every Friday after work when I come home I fill my tub with warm water and apply brown sugar with honey all over my body I’m obsessed with it, it makes my skin glow plus soft as a babies butt!
