I LOVE, LOVE LOVE your site. It is amazing. You have inspired me in so many ways.
The reason, I am writing you is because you are very knowledgeable about many subjects. My question is somewhat trivial.
I wanted to know what beauty products you use. You know for hair, face, skin, personal care, body and etc. What’s your favorite body wash, lotion, shampoo, skin treatment? What beauty tips do you recommend? Thanks so much for your help!!
well thank you foxholer!
i appreciate the love!
thank you for tuning in.
so this is probably my favorite subject.
i could talk about this all day to those who will listen.
so lets get into it…
before i start this,
keep in mind i have oily skin.
i have to do a completely different kind of regiment than others.
now when it comes to face stuff,
i have learned to switch it up.
my night formula is always different to my day.
if you use the same thing in the morning for the night,
you skin will get use it and it won’t help anymore.
i use anything with salicylic acid in it.
i was told by many how it’s much better for “our” skin.
right now i’m using:
morning – aveeno clear complexion
night – neutrogena oil free acne wash pink grapefruit cleaner
i use the aveeno clear complexion moisturizer as well.
as they can be very harsh on my skin.
after i get off work,
i usually take a shower.
so ill slather:
noxema classic clean
…and let it sit on my face for 10-15 minutes.
i like it because it removes “the day”.
sometimes at night,
depending on how lazy i am,
i’ll boil some water in a pot and steam my face.
i’ll put a towel over my head and put my face over the pot.
10 minutes or as long as i can stand it.
it opens up my pores so i’ll do it before i do my night regiment.
every other weekend,
i’ll do a clay mask.
i find it breaks me out upon regular use.
it seems to work better if i don’t do it as much.
for clay masks,
bentonite clay mask
now i’ve discovered another little gem.
they have many serums out there for different skin types.
a vixen from my job recently gave me a serum with vitamin c.
when i say the it makes my skin glow?
like the “meagan good” and “broderick hunter” kind of glow.
for close to 150 dollars,
i can see a difference in my skin as i use this.
do you research on serums before you test them out.
so find your skin type and what you want to achieve.
now for hair,
i was late,
but virgin coconut oil has been doing wonders.
it makes my hair:
…when other products failed.
i usually do a mix of:
black castor oil
doo gro mega thick hair intense repair
olive oil hair spray
…style and go.
i get a lot of compliments on how shiny and jet black my hair has become.
you can even use the coconut oil on your fur.
now for bawdy care,
joe warren put me on to:
queene helene cocoa butter creme
and like him:
my skin is softer and has a nice sheen to it.
as you can tell,
i’m all about the healthy glow.
i research a lot of “male model” and “celebrity” regiments.
as for my insides,
once a day,
1 x gnc sport multivitamins
1 x cod liver oil
…and i drink a lot of water.
i don’t eat salty foods (as it breaks me out),
cut down on sugars,
and eliminate fried foods.
i also add more fruits to my diet.
…oh and have a good laugh and be there for 1 animal everyday.
keeps you young and doing good makes you feel good.
you have to take care of your insides so your outside can shine.
…and there you have it.
this is what’s in my “jamari fox beauty bag”.
my regiment may seem like a lot,
but i wasn’t blessed with perfect skin/everything.
i gotta do a little extra than most,
but it works for me.
that being said:
WHAT I DO MAY NOT WORK FOR YOU
these are my regiments and may differ for you.
hell some people just wake up and go.
so please do your research and test products as you go.
i spend a lot of time on google perfecting my sexy.
it’s all about trial and error.
once you find something that works:
STICK WITH IT
if it ain’t broke,
or breaking you out crazy,
then you won’t have to do too much after that.
hope this helps!
keep me posted.
ps- there are many posts within the archives on “beauty”.
have fun digging around.
