Layer of Skin: my routine.

Melanin popping

I didn’t fall in love with my skin until about nineteen or twenty years of age. I didn’t start taking care of my skin until I was twenty-two years old. At that point in my life, I was working in hot kitchens. Being in heated environments will bring more attention to your skincare for sure.

Let your pores breathe! ✨

I remember always getting compliments about my skin. What I remember most was taking it for granted. I was starting to see moles, pimples, blackheads, freckles, beauty marks, and zits! It was madness!

I’m almost thirty, every year I learn something new. The time and care that I take with my skin have progressed. There is a lot involved with skincare. Your environment, food, water, stress, anxiety, and hygiene all contribute to the health of your skin. I don’t know how much water I drink in a day, but it’s a lot! Food is fuel – period! The environment is about the factors of nature. We need to adapt to what we have. If it is super hot and sunny, stay hydrated. Occasionally, find shade if possible and wear sunblock. Try keeping the stress and anxiety to a minimum. How do you say? Only focus/worry about things you can control. I’ll leave that to you, regarding what you can control. Perspective is forever changing, and to be honest, that’s none of my business.

Lastly, what we are all here for is skin hygiene. Here I will list out my routine for my weekly skin bath. It brings me joy to make this time for myself!

  1. Start hot bath! Feel free to use bubble bath, bath bombs, and etc.
  2. Sit and soak for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. With just my fingers I take my hands and massage my bottom half first.
  4. Next I scrub my bottom half with a coarse scrubby 🧽
  5. I repeat steps 3 and 4 on my top half. I also check my breast for lumps here and pay attention to my armpits.
  6. If I’m shaving, that’s where this starts.
  7. By this time the water is super nasty. You should have dead skin and dirt float with no more bubbles. Hair of you decided to shave.
  8. Drain the water, stand up, do a quick rinse.
  9. Clean (with soap) one more time overall and the water should be drained.
  10. Now do a last 2 minute hot rinse. It assures me that the lingering skin, dirt or hair is no longer on me and rinsed the soap of.
  11. I turn the water off and shake my booty cheeks so they clap. I try to avoid depending on a towel to completely dry.
  12. I dry my yoni then feet last.
  13. I let my pores breathe for a bit.
  14. I use Shea butter as my first application after my shower. It’s too heavy too put on open pores.

While doing all of this I try to be mindful of my week, my thoughts, goals. I even get into affirmations sometimes. Use this as your time. It’s amazing for me! Give it a try!

Make and take for yourself 🙃

Take care of yourself, and your skin will follow! Feel free to try any of the steps in my skip bath routine. Also, SHARING is CARING! Let me know what works for you. I would love to try out what you are doing!

another year, new goals.

My goals this year did not become an exhaustive list that I will later regret. Instead, I decided to pick and chose things that are logical, challenging, easy and brave. A mixture of these things gives me various possibilities to be successful. All I need to do is stay focused and never give up.

This year I will be twenty-eight. This year I will also make ish happen.

I want to post on my blog consistently, start and run an online store and, start selling plush dolls. I have to push myself to put myself out there. The store will start off with just plush dolls and slowly grow to more things. I am not sure yet if it will have the same name. The dolls are still in prototype phase so bare with me on their announcement.

For my lifestyle, I would like to get in better shape, practice yoga, meditate, and start cooking more frequently. Who doesn’t love the idea of being the best you? I think about it on a weekly basis, there is always more! I also found this place, thanks to a friend, called Aerial Charlotte. A place where I get to be inverted by choice and play with silks. Gasp! Somewhere I must go. I plan to document my first visit and share, of course. Anywho, I just want to increase my health as much as I can with me getting older and all.

I need to save more and travel more; an odd pair to put together. However, achievable if I really put my mind to it. So I plan to do both, which means I need to be more frugal like me cooking more. There are so many other unnecessary things that I need to cut out. I will be watching a few minimalist videos to help with that.

The best for last, I need to read more. Scrolling through my phone or electronic device was never an acceptable substitute. I mean unless it is some sort of e-reader then we can talk. I just know that I need more time reading rather than scrolling. My goal is to do one book per month, maybe later start a reading club.

Anyway, those are my goals for two thousand nineteen. What are your goals? Feel free to share. Until next time 🙂
