Knowing your Skintone.

It has been two months since my last post and because we’re now in a new year I want to start fresh on my blog. This means I plan on having at least  3 posts a week for you guys 🙂

Everyday Skincare Routine! <3

Hello everyone, today I am going to show you my everyday skincare routine that I follow religiously! I find it really helps me achieve that soft, extra clean face that is blemish free every day 🙂

To start off I should tell you what type of skin I have, Normal-Oily Skin! My O-zone (mouth and chin) tends to get oily whereas the rest of my face is normal.

  • I use a mask to refresh my skin, I don’t leave it on for the recommended time of 15 minutes because it can irritate, so instead I wash it off after about 1 🙂 I use the one below!
