Happy New Year everyone, it has been a while since I wrote on my blog and damn, do I miss it here.
For my New Year’s resolution, I only have just 1 which is JUST DO IT! As the famous Nike slogan.
I have been wanting to come back to blogging for a while now, but I guess I just never had the chance to do so. For my first blog post of the year, I want to tap into the beauty side after I woke up this morning and just went to shower and I realize some of y’all still do not have a skin care routine it’s a little bit tricky to get started and this is coming from the person who actually knows how to get started so it made me think what about all the people who actually do want to get started and just do not know where to start so here we go…

Here is how you can start your own skin care routine from the comfort of your home…

Talk to a dermatologist

Yeah yeah yeah, I know you’ve heard it all before. If I have to be honest, I too have never visited a dermatologist before. If you never had the need to visit a dermatologist chances are you have a good skin so let’s keep it that way and if the issue is budget, continue reading this post. We are going to get to that soon.

In case you did not know, a dermatologist is a medical practitioner specializing in skin matters and they can help you determine if you have a skin disorder or even understand the behavior of your skin. It is easier to talk to a professional who will give you tests and decide your skin type and tell you what type of products with which ingredients will work best for your skin. It is said that it’s best to visit a dermatologist at least once a year. Now that we’ve gotten this basic one out of the way, let’s go to the normal people ones…

Just take regular showers!!!

Again, another very obvious one you would be surprised how many people do not take this seriously. I know you took that one shower in the morning or when you You had to go out but what about when you’re just at home? You have no plans for the day that’s it. Some just let the day go by. That’s the first way you start failing your skin, your skin needs constant care, constant love and not to mention the amount of bacteria that is around your home whether it’s dust whether it’s just anything that can give you any kind of skin reaction. Trust me a simple shower at least twice a day can go a long way so start small. Take regular showers at least two times a day and see what happens to your skin.

Observe your skin!

Well, some of us cannot afford or haven’t even thought about going to visit a dermatologist. We have to figure out the type of our skin manually. 
There are many types of skins and we will cover this topic another time, so stay tuned and keep logging into this blog so you can read more articles.

You can start by identifying your own skin type based on how it reacts to certain matters such as cold, breezes or heat you just have to notice does your skin get too dry or is it too oily is it so oily that you start getting acne or do you get rushes regularly? and because you don’t understand you are left with options such as Vaseline, coconut oil or the most you try is cocoa butter? Although these aren’t bad or wrong options (again depending on how your skin reacts to it) most of the times these products are only basics that you need for your skin. 
The most important thing to do is to identify what type of skin do you have. Think of it as if you’re hungry and you are in a mood for food you would start observing what are you in the appetite for and that is the same thing you should do for your skin. The only difference is if your skin is dry it means you need a product that will add a bit of moisture to your skin. Therefore, you will need a moisturizer. You will need something that will make it more fresh and shiny whereas if your skin is oily you will need the opposite of that. You need something for oily skin. This is very important when you’re starting to figure out your skin care routine

Moving on…

Visit “Naturalistas”!

Honey, we don’t have the budget for a dermatologist, but rest assured if you visit brands that are locally available and most turn to be affordable, they tend to give you skin care advice. Of course it has to come from the person that’s actually making the product and you do have to observe the skin of the person giving you the advice. This is a cheaper way to get advice for your skin and they will recommend the products. Of course it could be from their own skin care line, which is good because they know what they’re talking about and they have already done enough research on it. 

Stick around to see natural skin care lines we recommend…

Start small!

Think of your skin as a baby the more you feed healthy food the better they grow. In this case, you have to start baby steps. You already have the coconut oil or the Vaseline, buildup from there. You need to stay consistent and you need to see the results. Keep in mind results could take a while so be patient and don’t get side tracked.
You can use coconut oil as a base for something different like a lotion, and keep being consistent with how you use your products. Trust me after sometime, you will see results. And while we are on the patience streak you should know you will also need…


You have to build a routine from day one that you must follow,. Make it a lifestyle, that way… you’re never going to feel like you’re obligated to do it or get annoyed or bored that you have to do it think of it as a self love letter to yourself. 

On the practical side, what do we mean when we say consistency? 

You need to get that at least twice a day shower down then you’ve got to get that layering it could be a moisturizer with something else. Keep in mind if you have oily skin this is probably not going to be the best thing for you, but you could get an aloe vera gel to help you with your skin condition, which ever it would be. Keep using the same products if you realize they are actually good for your skin. You should be very observant with your skin as some product may have a delayed reaction. You need to pay attention to how your skin reacts but if the product works well for your skin. So if you are using a certain soap, keep using the same soap if you are using a certain lotion, keep using the same lotion and I would recommend you use the same brands each time once you know what works for you.


Have fun with it as I said before do not make it a duty instead make it lifestyle and in no time you will see that glow kicking in!!!
