Achieve Clear, Glowing Dark Skin

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Not to sound self-centered, but one compliment I get often is how clear and even my skin is. Now I think to my self - "Is it irregular to be dark-skinned and have clear even skin?" 
I don't think so. So today, I am sharing with you all my tips to getting clear (no acne/breakouts), even (no dark marks), and glowing skin. This tips are specially curated for us darker ladies because most of the products on the market aren't made with our skin type-or shade (but that's another post) in mind. 


Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit || Buy Here -
This is a product that I've been using for about 5 years now. It does a great job at removing all oil and dirt on your face. It contains Vitamin C in the form of grapefruit to give a clean refreshed feeling. I reccomend this to ALL skin types!


Queen Helene Gentle Oatmeal n' Honey Natural Scrub || Buy Here -
It's really important to use a mask or a scrub on your face after cleansing/exfoliating. You can put back moisture into the skin and help the overall brightness of your complexion. I like this scrub because it removes the dull look from my face and renews it with glowing skin. Who doesn't love the scent of oatmeal and honey?


Skin Brush || Buy Here -
Now this 'step' is completely optional. Most people can use a scrub and that covers their exfoliating process. I like to use a brush like this to help scrub out dead skin cells. This is a must because about every week, our skin renews itself and leaves a layer of dead skin cells behind. Don't you want to get rid of those? I use this with my cleanser once a week. After using you can immediately see a difference.


Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner || Buy Here -
Toning is important because it will remove anything left behind after cleansing. Like dead skin, bits of a skin mask and such. I like this one by Neutrogena because it contains no harsh alcohol and is very cooling on the skin.


Ambi Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 || Buy Here -
Now if you want even skin, this moisturizer is the way to go! I cannot emphasize how much the Ambi Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer has helped my skin. After getting a breakout, our dark skin leaves behind a dark mark or a scar. Using this moisturizer helps remove those dark marks and even the overall appearance of our skin. It also contains SPF 30 with is essential for our pigmented skin tones.
