PERFECT SKIN FOR TROPICAL CLIMATES IN 5 SIMPLE STEPS

We all want perfect skin and some of us pay for expensive treatments and products in the quest to meet it to no avail. Related Article: Tips for Winter Skin Care

 Here is our secret to perfect skin in 5 simple steps that won’t break the bank:

SKINCARE_ROUTINE_TIPS_AND_TRICKS_CLEANSE_TONE_AND_MOISTURISE

CLEANSE: Cleansing is definitely the first step to perfect skin. Do not use regular soap on face, rather, invest in a foaming wash that would leave your skin clean yet not strip it off all moisture. Suffering from drier skin? A milder, soap-free cleanser such as Cetaphil is a great option.

EXFOLIATE: This is a necessary step in your skin care routine. Exfoliation which can be done using a loofah, body brush or scrub helps in skin cell renewal, giving smoother and brighter skin + increases the positive effects of moisturiser. Related Article: 5 D.I.Y Simple Home-Made Scrub Recipes

MOISTURIZE: This ensures that all moisture lost from carrying out the steps above is restored. Moisturize daily for beautiful and younger looking skin. Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Olive Oil and Shea Butter are great natural moisturizers.

SUNSCREEN: Sunscreen is a necessary step that a number of people skip in their skin care routines. Sunscreen is great for everyone from Caucasians to Asians, Latinos and even Blacks as it protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun which causes premature ageing. Steps 3 and 4 can be joined by investing in an all-in-one moisturizer + SPF of not less than 15.

HYDRATE: Who ever said the inside doesn’t matter when it comes to skin care? Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily will give you that natural glow. Not too keen on the taste of water? Add a slice of lemon or orange.

He was recognized to be one of the greatest leaders not only in Africa but the world and will be known forever as the man who sacrificed 27 years of his life fighting for the freedom of his people.

4 TYPES OF EYELINERS EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

Eyeliner is a quick and easy way to transform your overall look and every woman should at least have one type of eyeliner in her make up purse. There are four basic types of eyeliner popular on the market now: pencil eyeliner, gel eyeliner, liquid liner, and kohl.

types of eyeliners

PENCIL EYELINER

pencil

This is the most commonly used eyeliner as it is very easy to manage and control. It is often a basic makeup staple, and one especially good for beginners as it’s easy to apply while you develop a steady hand.

Recommended Pencil Eyeliners: Artdeco Couture Khol Liner, Sephora Slim Pencil Eyeliner

GEL/CREAM EYELINER

gel eyeliner

This is a huge favorite especially among women that love wearing eye makeup because it gives the precision of liquid eyeliner without the extra difficulty. Gel eyeliner usually comes in a pot that you dip an angled brush to get the product out.

Recommended Gel Eyeliners: ELF Studio Cream eyeliner, Maybelline Eye Studio Drama Gel Eyeliner, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner

LIQUID EYELINER

liquid

Liquid liner is great for women that want a more defined yet dramatic and precise look. This eyeliner is quite difficult to work with and so many women have given up on it and left it for the professionals.  When perfected however, it comes out beautifully. Tip: For a more precise line, apply liquid eyeliner in short brush strokes close to the lash line and then connect.

Recommended Liquid Eyeliner: Shishedo Pen Liquid Eyeliner, Kiko Definition Eyeliner

KHOL

khol

This type of eyeliner was traditionally used in the Middle East, Egypt, India. While kohl liner resembles pencil eyeliner, it goes on a lot more thickly and is a bit softer in texture. We recommend using a Khol Eyeliner when rocking the smudged smokey eye or goth look.
Recommended Khol Eyeliners: Avon Glimmerstick Eyeliner, Jordana Easyliner
