Give Me A Good Facial

facialsloveso as a fox,
wolf,
or hybrid,
it is always best to put your best face forward.
you don’t know when you will be headed to an event,
meeting new people,
or even a job interview.
besides having your style swagg on point,
you face also has to be the same as well.
so lets talk the wonderful world of facials.
it is best to always exfoliate your skin every two-three days.
depends on what your skin type is.
i personally rotate every three days.
exfoliating is basically removing dead skin and bringing forth your “glow”.
this is the “glow” era memba?
now choosing the right scrub can be a pain,
especially if you don’t know what your skin type is.
well have no fear,
“le luxe le fox” salon is here.
i have some good drug store suggestions for you to check out…

SENSITIVE

300

If your skin is sensitive, try to find out what your triggers are so you can avoid them. You may have sensitive skin for a variety of reasons, but often it’s in response to particular skin care products.

Sensitive skin can show up as:

Redness
Itching
Burning
Dryness

anything with fruit or calming ingredients will help.
you don’t want to buy products that will aggravate your skin.

NORMAL

300-1

Normal skin is not too dry and not too oily. It has:

No or few imperfections
No severe sensitivity
Barely visible pores
A radiant complexion

lucky bastids!
thats what “halle berry” skin.
you can wake up and wash your face with a bar of soap.
not a damn thing will happen.
you will still look flawless either way.
look for anything that will “brighten” your skin.
it should contain anything with micro beads and moisturizers.

COMBO

300-2

A combination skin type can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). Many people have combination skin, which  may benefit from slightly different types of skin care in different areas.

Combination skin can produce:

Overly dilated pores
Blackheads
Shiny skin

you need to tackle your oily t zone and the dry parts of your face.
so you need a product that will basically work together.
its best to try anything with vitamin “e” and pumice.

OILY

1329165307-5650089_full

Oily skin can produce:

Enlarged pores
Dull or shiny, thick complexion
Blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes

anything that says it has salicylic acid.
not only is salicylic acid good for black skin,
it is also does amazing work for oily skin.
that helps clear up breakouts and reduce excess oil.

DRY

st-ives-moisturizing-olive-scrub

 Dry skin can produce:

Almost invisible pores
Dull, rough complexion
Red patches
Less elasticity
More visible lines

dry skin ages faster than all the skin types.
which is why a fast lifestyle starts to show up at a young age.
use anything with olive oil and shea butter.
it is important to keep dry skin moisturized as well.

——-

noted-ryan-the-officei like to keep the same ingredients in my cleansers and moisturizers.
always exfoliate before you wash your face with your regular cleanser.

you want to scrub off the dead skin cells first while your pores are open.
if you have any breakouts,

i suggest you use:

850724…on the pimple the night before.
never put it on your entire face as it is extremely drying.
by morning,
it will dramatically reduce in size or completely vanish.
i use 10% because i have oily skin,
but 5% is also available.
you can fuckin fry a whole hamburger on my face some days.
oily skin is a blessing and a curse tho.
the blessing is the excess oil makes you age a lot slower and reduces wrinkles.
i try to remember that when i’m blotting.
hope this helps someone out there!
if anyone has any suggestions,
please feel free to comment.
 i love a good beauty buy!

lowkey: if you aren’t a rookie to a good facials,
there are products that cost $50 – $200 dollars i didn’t mention.
the kind made with lamb’s sperm and the tears of jesus.
those will make you look like a movie star out here.

  1. I so know the feeling my oily skin can look disgusting at times, plus I’m always breaking out from it. I brought a clarisonic Mia about a year ago and it has help with my breakouts and the overall cleaning of my face. It wasn’t cheap like 150 I think but when I use it continually my skin looks and feel better. Plus the breakout come and go instead of staying for weeks.

  2. Yea I love taking care of my face/body so that when I turn 60, I still look like I am in my late 20’s or 30’s. I am joining the blackdontcrack movement.

  3. Great advice J! Y’all should check out skincaretalk.com. they have great advice on how to take care of your skin. Love love love that blog.

  4. I have a dermatologist. I use serious shit on my face. fuck this over the counter bullshit. you get what you pay for. Half the shit on the shelves is just dishwashing liquid.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
