so as a fox,
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…
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:
anything with fruit or calming ingredients will help.
you don’t want to buy products that will aggravate your skin.
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
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.
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
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 skin can produce:
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 skin can produce:
Almost invisible pores
Dull, rough complexion
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.
i 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:
…on the pimple the night before.
never put it on your entire face as it is extremely drying.
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.
