Since I turned 30, I do my best not to use products that aggravate or dry out my skin. I prefer using products with ingredients that are naturally derived and safe.

My facial skincare routine is an adaptation of the Korean skincare routine with a few minor changes to suit the Nigerian weather.


- cleanse using a pH balanced cleanser and/or micellar cleanser

- tone with rosewater/orange blossom water, 

- apply a water based serum like Korres Black Pine Serum

- apply one or two drops of my facial oil mix

- apply sunscreen such as SunBum mineral Sunscreen SpF 30/50. 

For my body,

I use SheaMoisture African Water Mint and Ginger Detox Lotion or this natural Eden Body Works Citrus Fusion Hair and Body Butter

I do a little bit extra on spa days. 
I did a clay mask using Shea butter cottage Rhassoul Clay mask which I purchased from OrganicLifePlus online store.
Rhassoul clay is more moisturising than Bentonite Clay and slippery too so great as a clay wash for hair. 

I'm mixing it with edible orange blossom water which has astrigent properties to close pores, reduce oiliness and keep skin clear.  

I added cinnamon powder  which is very good for acne. When using cinnamon please use a dash. It's really strong!! It makes my skin tingle a lot so I use it sparingly. 

To shower, I'm currently using this handmade Fruit infused face and body wash made by a new natural skincare brand (coming soon). It contains kojic acid, citric acid pineapple, papaya, orange amongst other ingredients. 
It smells amazing and acts as a mild chemical peel.

I usually use it at night but since it's spa day, I use it in the day time too.

So far, so good, my skin is benefiting from using gentle, naturally derived products.

What's your skin care routine like?

  2. Hello Madam,

    I'm a fair skinned lady. My skin is very sensitive yet tough to change to. I want a cream that still would lighten me up and maintain a whitened complexion without sunburns, green vein, dark spot, dark knuckles or dark toes.
