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.
I hope this was helpful to anyone who has skin suffering in silence again feel free to reach and follow for any others questions.
My skin needs a breakthrough I’m trying to enhance my skin hydration and take good care of it so my skin can stand the test of time.
24K Gold Magnetizing Mask
24K Gold Post-Action Cream
24K Gold Facial Serum
I was so excited to try this product it sold me on a million reasons not only because he cut the price more than half. It’s a $2,700 product that I only paid $500 for (not sure if I was supposed to share that) sidenote: but show off your Hebrew language and your love for Israel when you deal with Israelis. The salesman said Cleopatra used this same product, it’s made in Israel, I have a product that came to me without going to Israel, and many other reasons. The Dead Sea is on my Bucket List. I’m still stuck on the fact that He said Cleopatra used this mask. Hmmm. How true is it? I know there is a similar product to this one called Black Pearl 24K Gold Cleopatra Mask which is $3,000 it’s something about the Middle Eastern women washing their face in GOLD I’m all for it. I’m blessed to be at a time in my life to experience this for myself. This stuff is PURE GOLD it stimulates the sensitive electrical resonance of skin as it absorbs into the deeper keratin, coaxing elastin to maintain its firming. Whatever that means my skin needs help.
Apply onto thoroughly cleansed dry face and neck as follows:
- Use the spatula to layer mask over entire face, avoiding the eye area.
- Allow mask to remain on for seven minutes.
- Activate magnetic cellular stimulation by gliding the tissue-wrapped magnetic bar (attached to the box) over face revealing a thin golden layer.
- Follow up by cleansing your face with your favorite DSC cleanser.
The DSC Mineral Matrix 24k Gold Magnetizing Mask energizing treatment effect will remain active on your face for up to 10 hours after it has been removed. Apply twice a week for best results.
The Mineral Matrix 24K Gold Deep Sea Cosmetics is good for rejuvenating action of minerals drawn from oxygen-rich Dead Sea water. Gold escorts oxygen molecules to the cellular level, helping refresh the skins ability to regenerate. And it balances skin texture and tone, reducing the appearance of discoloration by slowing melanin secretion.
“ZAHAV” means GOLD in Hebrew
