If your like me your skin care regiment has changed drastically through the years depending on the new trend. Fortunately with all the information we have about certain chemicals and additives to women’s skin care and makeup the trend for a while now has gone to natural and DIY formulas. Which leads me to my daily skin care routine.
For the last 10 years or more I have been washing my face with homemade soaps and moisturizing with homemade body butter. I am a makeup wearer but very minimal and none on most summer days. I try to stay out of the sun as much as I can and never use sunscreen. Hats, umbrellas, tents and old fashion shade are my arsenal for the summer sun.
I wash my face once in the morning and before bed. The soap is always made up of ingredients like, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil or other types of natural oils. My latest favorites are a unscented uncolored oatmeal baby soap, great for any parts that are sensitive. And my buttermilk and honey soap bar. Nothing better for your skin. Honey is naturally antibacterial, so its great for acne and extremely moisturizing. Buttermilk is rich in probiotic lactic acid and used for exfoliating the skin.
The soaps are rich and creamy leaving my skin soft, feeling free and clear. Which leaves me not wanting to cover it up with layers of makeup. I hate having foundation on my face especially in the winters when I’m bundling all up with jackets, hats and scarfs where they rub against my face transferring my fake complexion all over those items. I’m not one to do laundry any more than I have to!
