Ground Rules For Keeping Up With Your Skin

What is going on with my skin? (crying emoji with mouth open) I have blackheads and big pores. Why are my pores plugged? if you have this same problem I’m here to help you we are in this together and if you have any recommendations for me please feel free to comment or reach out to me.

I have never had the problem of watching what I use on my face but as I get older it’s like I have to read the labels on EVERYTHING I use. Some suggestions I read were “use creams with retinol to eliminate the blockage” a dermatologist in Glamour special edition.

I have tried to reach out to 3 different dermatologists in my local area and for some reason, they are not taking new patients (smh emoji) I have given up and I’m taking matters in my own hand until otherwise. One receptionist told me because of retirement the dermatologist will not be taking new patients I’m thinking does he have a website will he blog. (shrugs)

How do you feel about splurging on pro treatments? 

When I reached out to Beauty + Media Personality // Digital Hair + Beauty Contributor for Essence Samantha Callender we talked skin care and believe me this girl knows her ish it’s like she consulted me via Instagram and gave me some recommendations.

Here are the products she recommends for melanin beauty along with some tips to keep your skin flawless.

  • Don’t use lotion on your face.
  • Don’t sleep in your makeup.
  • Use face masks too- charcoal and pore focused mud masks will draw out the stuff in your skin, sheet masks (paper ones) or for hydration which I don’t believe in masks for hydration use a cream or gel to hydrate.
  • Most makeup wipes have alcohol in them which fu*ks your skin up to so I try to just use a wash cloth instead.
