My Simple Morning Skincare Routine

Having a rather complicated skincare routine or applying tonnes of products is usually not proof that you are doing what is right. Sometimes, simple is really all you need.

Step 1- Cleanse:

For this, I use the Neem oil black soap by Nokware. I have had an interesting evolution with black soaps. From using none to trying the Shea moisture black soap back in 2017. Now, I have found a black soap that I can equally use for my face.

You can get the Nokware black soap directly from the brand or from Afri beauty collective.

Step 2- Tone:

Toning has become a really important part of my skincare routine especially now that I use black soap. I still fear that black soap has a drying effect. That is why I have always tried to opt for a toner that is natural like thermal spring water and rosewater toner. Right now, I have been using the rosewater toner by Mo Organics.

Step 3- Moisturise

This is the last step in my simple morning skincare routine. I use Avene Tolerance extreme which is perfect for normal to combination skin. I started using this the first time I had a skin reaction in France. The dermatologist recommended it and it just became my go-to face cream for as long as I can find it.

Like I mentioned in my YouTube video, there are days when I include other steps to my routine. This is usually occasionally like once a week, biweekly or even once a month, depending on the step. I also made mention of my body moisturizer in the YouTube video. Click the button below to watch.
