Event-Approved Skincare in 5 Easy Steps
With just 4 days away from the 2021 MTN Liberia Music Awards, hopeful nominees, presenters, celebrities, guests, and fans are all eagerly planning all the details of the night. I’m talking, from their outfits, to the accessories, photographers, and even how to sit back, observe, and judge the night from the sidelines. Although, one tiny detail that often gets left on the back burner is, ironically, the most important. I’m talking about the skin.
Under all those lights, cameras, and eyes, the skin is the star of the night, and can make or break an entire look if cared for or neglected. Don’t panic though, and don’t rush to setting those spa appointments either. I have found a way to get your skin blindingly glowing for the entire night, with just 5 incredible products you can use during your regular bath time.
Recipe: Glowing, Healthy, Awards-Ready Skin
Time: 45 Minutes
Necessities: Bathroom, water, towels, skincare products (music and lit candles for aesthetics)
*Repeat 2 times a week at 3 days intervals, including morning of Awards*
A key part of every skincare regimen is the products that make up the routine. In any consistent skincare routine, it is important to use products that connect with your own specific needs in order to achieve targeted results. Although, in some cases, there are some products that are formulated to work with most skin types. These products can be used on their own consistently, however, they should be used together at least 3 times a week, if you wish to achieve quick results.
Some of my favorites among those products, also happen to be all Liberian-owned, which you can find in stores in Liberia, as well as online. Continue below for the full list and user guide, which is guaranteed to keep you glowing all night long under your makeup and fabulous styles.
Green Elixrs Detoxifying Mask
This mask is a great starter in your glow process, because it does exactly what it says it does. It detoxifies the skin, ridding it of all impurities from beneath the surface, giving you a chance at a clean skin from under the skin.
Keep on for 10-15 mins and wash with warm water for best results.
Kernel Fresh Exfoliating Scrub
Using an exfoliant as the next step in the process is great, because it scrubs the surface of the skin to clarify it of all the blemishes unveiled by the detoxifier. This scrub also works perfectly as a full body scrub, which can rid your entire skin of dead skin cells, leaving a beautiful, smooth, glowing exterior.
Keep on for 5-10 mins and wash off with warm water for best results.
Ade Holistic Facial Scrub
This scrub is a face and body scrub, although I like to use it most as a lip scrub due to its sugary base. The honey and brown sugar works to smoothen, shine, and moisten your lips. Don’t forget, smooth lips make the best lipstick base.
Scrub for 2 mins and wash off with warm water.
Kernel Fresh Cucumber + Oatmeal Soap
This oatmeal and cucumber soap works great to cleanse the skin of the impurities surfaced by the detoxifier, as well as the oil residue from the exfoliating scrub. It’s a cool blend of cucumber, which has properties that will relieve the skin of puffiness, and oatmeal, which works to alleviate the look of large pores, among other benefits.
Lather for 3 mins/until clean, and wash off with cool water.
Epanouie Éclair Night Créme
Last on this of products is the Epanouie night crème. I like to use this night crème both at night and after a skincare routine like this. The benefits of the night crème is that, it has moisture-enriching properties, which you will definitely need after the detoxifier, scrub, and soap cleanse. Its important to use this creme before any oils, so that the moisture is absorbed by the skin, rather than just sitting on top of it.
Massage evenly across the surface of your skin for best results.
So, there you have it! A quick, 5-product routine that will get you glowing and ready for your spotlight! As always, remember that the key to achieving your desired skincare results doesn’t rest on the shoulders of the products alone, but also on your lifestyle choices. As such, below are some extra things to do so your skin looks its best on Saturday.
- Drink enough water daily
- Limit your alcohol consumption for the entire week (Don’t drink at all if possible)
- Eat fruits + veggies daily
- Get enough rest as possible
- Avoid high stress triggers when possible
