Daily Skin Care Routine: How I Broke It and Fixed It All Over Again!

This is not a sponsored post! Unless you want it to be; in that case, email me!

I am the first person to stray away from an already set routine when it comes to anything. I tried not eating bread, failed. I tried exercising in the morning, failed. But when it comes to my face, I am not playing around!

When I moved to New York a couple months ago, I abandoned my skin care routine, and it was the worst thing that I could ever do. Before then, my skin care routine was simple but not ethical or even healthy. I would just use African Black Soap, which is not a bad thing to use, however, I wear makeup and I needed something stronger to break down the makeup. After that, I was using a moisturizer from Derma E which I received from them for a review, and honestly, it wasn’t a good moisturizer. It clogged up my pores and it still had my face feeling dry. When I moved to New York, there were so many things going on at the time and I just gradually stopped my skin care routine. I would have to rush out in the morning every day and that resulting in me just throwing water on my face and using body lotion to moisturize my face. Because it was winter in New York, My face was drier than a raisin and I hated it.

I then moved to LA and that when I started taking better care of my face.  I started with the THREE STEP CLEANSER from Clinique. My skin was super dry and the three step cleanser was the miracle I needed to get my skin back on track. I will be honest with you, I was not trying to spend a lot of money and my first place I went to for skin care solution was Kmart! Yes, I did, please don’t judge me! Because you’re probably asking yourself, why should I take advice from this dysfunctional person? Well, I’ll tell you why because Cliniques three step cleanser was what helped get my skin back together and it’s so simple that a monkey could do it. and the whole process only takes five minutes so, from the words of my loving and nagging boyfriend, stop being lazy and wash your damn face!

Ditch The Rainbow Hair And Go Black!

Black is the most common hair color in the world, and is due to a large amount of eumelanin. So why be so basic? Let me tell you why!

The most common in the world: Brown/black. Globally, both men and women with dark hair are most likely to be engaged by someone of the opposite sex, at 70 percent and 34 percent, respectively. In the U.S., women with brown/black hair have a 40 percent chance of being contacted by a male suitor, while men with brown/black hair have a 66 percent chance.

In my opinion, there is nothing more sexier than black hair. It personally took me a while to realize this but once I realized it it just changed my whole life. Us here at a Glamour Guys are all about doing the most when it comes to fashion but also knowing that simple is the most glamorous of all. Having blank canvases like hair actually brings out any other accessories or makeup and takes your look to a level that is untouchable.

Think fancy and chic. The most luxurious and glamorous people typically wear the same hairstyle or same color or style of clothes. Its then the handbag and the accessories that change everything. Check out some of these looks!

Three Essential Steps Needed for Great Skin

Nice and healthy skin can be hard to accomplish but when it is done, the hard work and dedication is something that you would be glad you put yourself through. 

No matter if you have oily, normal or a dry skin type, these are the most universal tips in the beauty industry that it should be a sin for being this simple.

1. Cleanser

Your face can get really dirty after a long day of being outside and the last thing you want to do is go to sleep. You need to wash your face off. A good cleanser will clean out them pours so they’re ready to take on the next day. Without cleaning your face, that can cause your pours to hold oil and dirt and then create break outs and unwanted pimples. and NOBODY wants that! Here are some cleansers I recommend at an affordable range.

Shea Moisture Black Soap

2271836This soap is more for oily skin because it strips your skin quite vigorously. But, it also gives you an abundance of antioxidants and vitamins A and E .It’s also good for  thinning fine lines, evening out dark spots, eczema, razor bumps and eliminating blemishes. It is also used to lightly exfoliate and give you healthier looking skin

Clinique Liquid Soap Cleanser

947270I swear by this cleanser. I first tried this out at bloomingdales and I instantly fell in love with it. It is more for normal to dry skin and it literally feels like velvet on your face. Its a simple cleanser and it helps moisturize your face.

2. Toner

Toner is very important because it goes back behind the cleanser and get all the left over dirt that the cleanser had got to come out to the surface. I typically have not found a toner that I truly love but there are many at the local drug store that you can pick up. It is an important step but I have found that you can use any brand and will still get you “ok” results. I use the Clean and Clear toner and it works pretty well.

3. Moisturizer

clq_Z56H01_402x464.pngThis is my favorite part when it comes to simple skin care. This is also the part in the routine where I think you should spend a little money for great quality. I do not recommend going to the drug store and getting a moisturizer. And please do not use regular body lotion. I used to do that and my face is still recovering. I suggest using Clinique basic moisturizer. Its not explensive but at the same time, I can get Terrance and I a meal from Chick-Fil-A or something.

So now that you have the three essential steps to skin care, you should be ready to take your skin to the next level. There are so many other things that you can do to your face to make it the best that it should be, but we can talk about that another time.
