Talking about self-care in the month of October where we recognize those who fight or have fought the hardships of breast cancer is so important to me.
Whether going through it yourself or being there to support a family member it is imperative to take the time to care for yourself. This can be facials, fitness, fun with friends or family. Whatever you decide to do with your well deserved time I share some of my favorite beauty products when I am at my best spiritually, mentally and physically.
Most for women of color have been taught that wearing SPF wasn’t necessary due to having deeper skin tones. A logic that I have to be honest I followed for some time. It wasn’t until my dermatologist of color set me straight. Skin protection is key to the long-lasting flawless skin we all hope to have. This Clinique Picture Perfect Day with SPF 15 is a lightweight daily moisturizer that provides both hydration and sun protection. If you have been following me for some time, you know that I am an oily-combination skin so adding moisturizer make freak some out but if I have said it once I will say it again, we all need moisturizer! This way our skin doesn’t have to feel like it has to overproduce excess oil. The beauty of the product is it refines pores and promotes clear skin with vitamin c. Make skincare simply, after all, it’s the most valuable use of your time in your daily routine.
Another gem, I like to have in full rotation is a lip balm. One, in particular, is Clinique superbalm moisturizing gloss. I am quite sensitive to lipgloss, which is so strange. I break out in small little bumps from either the scent or the flavor.
However, this high-gloss treats your most undermoisturized skin to soothing shine and for me no negative reaction. You can’t beam that smile of self-resilience with crusty lips.
I know some may be looking for my favorite foundation or eyeshadow but honestly, I feel my most beautiful with a bare face, moisturizer, and a gloss.
