The ultimate skincare routine for black women
February 04, 2022
Summer has been long gone. Yes. But does it have to mean we don’t want to glow like Gabrielle Union anymore ? Absolutely not ! With the winter season coming along with dry air and low temperatures, our skin is at its most vulnerable. This is why it is important to have a solid daytime and nighttime routine for a healthier skin.
Black women, here is the ultimate skincare routine to keep glowing like Gabrielle Union.
Cleanse your face
To keep your skin healthy and glowy, ensure you cleanse your face everyday. This helps to get rid of impurities such as dirt or sweat. The accumulation of these impurities is what leads to inflammation or acne.
A facial cleanser that we recommend for your daytime routine is Good Clean Dirt from the brand Kynk Naturals. This paste-like cleanser helps to gently remove toxins, and will leave your face smooth and clean.
Exfoliate your skin
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. There are several exfoliating tools that we can recommend to help you easily and successfully exfoliate your face, one of which is your hands! Using your hands, or choice of exfoliating tool, apply the face scrub and gently massage in a circular motion for about 30 seconds before rinsing with lukewarm water.
Be careful! Exfoliating daily can irritate your skin, and so we suggest exfoliating 1-2 times a week for the best results. If you want to use an exfoliating tool, try the lip and nose silicone exfoliation brush, perfectly sized for you to hold and harmless to the skin.
Toner helps to remove dirt stuck in your pores that the cleanser didn’t remove. It also gives balance and hydration to your skin. Toners have proven to be especially beneficial to people with oily skin.
HYDRATE your skin! Our best selling moisturizer is KYNK Natural’s Laugh Line Re-Definer while your face is damp so as to allow it to penetrate the skin. Since black skin loses moisture quickly, use moisturizer with glycerin or argan oil. This fragrance-free, Argan Oil infused moisturizer penetrates the skin and gives you that dewy, beautiful glow that we know you want !
Stay tuned for our remaining recommendations for your daytime AND nighttime routine :)
