BERRY VLOG - My Skincare Routine

One of the few things I miss about being pregnant is "the glow." As in, my skin was just yummy! A lot of pregnant women complain about their faces getting darker, but I personally didn't notice it until AFTER I gave birth to Baby Cocoa. From what I remember, my skin was the best it ever looked. Maybe it was due to being pregnant, or because I was forced to drink water, or my incorporating a skincare regimen. I mean, I was on bed rest, so I didn't have much to do anyways.

In my skincare routine, which I try to do at least twice a week, I make sure to do the following:
  1. CLEANSE - I typically use a bar of black soap, or regular black soap from Nigeria. I must admit that sometimes I find it a little bit drying.
  2. EXFOLIATE - I exfoliate and remove dead skin cells using a soft facial brush and a facial scrub.
  3. MASK - I haven't tried the popular new sheet masks, so I still use old school masks in my routine.
  4. TONE - Even though Micellar water is described as a cleanser, I still use one in this step, followed by an actual toner. This helps to ensure that all traces of dirt or makeup is gone. 
  5. MOISTURIZE - I moisturize using two or more facial oils, serums and face creams. This helps my skin stay supple, and prevents dryness.
