A new year signifies fresh beginnings, new starts, and routines, and with 2021 right around the corner, there are many already thinking about their New Year resolutions. You hear so many people say they want better health, more money, a new car but have you included your skincare routine? We all have experienced bad habits with our skin, from sleeping with makeup on to not exfoliating, but for 2021 we will find the best skincare routines for ourselves and stick with them.
Wash that Beautiful Face before Bed
Raise your hand if you had a long day and was too tired to wash off your makeup 🙋🏿♀. Yes! We have all been there. However, we know better and must do better. Removing makeup before going to bed prevents damage to your skin. While you sleep at night, your skin renews itself so, leaving it on hinders the process. Not sure what you should use as a cleanser? Look no further. Our Liquid Black Soap acts as an antibacterial cleanser and gently removes makeup without stripping your skin of its natural moisture. While your skin is renewing itself, black soap improves your skin texture with its natural exfoliants. Who doesn’t want to glow in 2021?
Step up your Game by Steaming
Nothing says luxury like steaming your face. If you have never experienced having your face steamed, you are missing out. Don’t worry; you will not have to break the bank to luxuriate.. The steam opens your pores, loosening up any dirt buildup. This process makes it easier to deep clean. Steaming hydrates, the skin naturally moisturising your face. Moisture is key!
Are you experiencing issues with sinuses? Steaming can relieve sinus congestion.
The beauty of steaming is you can do it from the comfort of your home. All you will need is hot water, a few drops of your favorite essential oils, a bowl, and a towel. Add the hot water and essentials oils to your bowl and sit over it with your towel over your head. Your face will love the extra attention it receives.

Get your Rest Sleeping Beauty
Sleep is probably the best thing you can do for your skin. Earlier, we said your skin renews itself while you’re sleeping, so missing out on rest can do your face a world of a disservice. When you give yourself between 7 – 9 hours of sleep, you will start to notice glowing skin, a happier appearance, fewer fine lines, and the disappearance of dark circles under the eyes.
Before going to sleep, turn off all electronic devices and allow your body to relax so renewing yourself for the next day.
Scrub! Scrub! Scrub!
Exfoliating your skin should be one of your top priorities in your skincare routine. Exfoliating is an easy process and should be done at least twice a week. When you stick to this routine, you eliminate dead skin cells, even your skin tone, unclog pores, and boost circulation. Our Shea Sugar Scrub not only exfoliates but nourishes your skin and is rich in fatty acid that helps keep your skin refreshed and naturally moisturised.
Exfoliation works wonders for every skin type!
Let us ring in 2021 by treating ourselves! We are going to find a routine that works and remain consistent. Revamp your skincare routine and put your best face forward😉.
