Curious about why Tosin went into skin care blogging… It was majorly because I wanted clear skin, I didn’t want to have to cover my skin with make up. I realized I wasn’t the only one going through skin issues so I decided to start documenting and sharing the knowledge and my journey to better skin.Also, when I started I noticed that there was a market for skin care bloggers from the response I got from brands. More so, when it comes to skin care blogging, there was no major name attached to that area so I decided to carve a niche for myself.You can find her Instagram here.
SKIN CARE PRODUCTSPeople have different skin types so what works for one might not work for the other person. I have normal skin so this recommendation will be based on normal skin to dry skin.Here’s the order of my skin care routines…Face wash, scrub, toner (rose water can be used in place of toner), serum, moisturizer, sunscreen and finally I seal everything up with Rose water again.
Let’s dive right in!First is Facial kit from NaturaGlowbyAbby which consists of the Facial Cleanser, Facial Scrub and Facial Toner.
Other products I use include…Black Head Power Liquid This black head power liquid can be used in place of the scrub because some people prefer the chemical exfoliant than the physical sugar like scrubs.
Ultimate Nourishing Rice MaskTo moisturise I use this ultimate nourishing rice, I like this moisturizer because it has the texture of a lightweight cream, it absorbs easily, so it can also be used as a regular daytime or night time moisturizer.
Ayele Sunflower SerumThis serum is more oil-based and it helps to even out skin tones, unclogs your pores and reduces break out.
Pure Healthy Brightening SerumThis serum is lightweight, absorbs quickly into the skin and reduces the intensity of dark spots.
