As feminism ranks higher and higher, climbing every single day, I assume that our badass sisters need a good skincare routine to help them save time and get their day started with a feeling of glam and confidence. In the 21st century we have to deal with all kinds of products dancing in our minds, telling us we “need” to have that or we won’t rest. As a fairly sensitive woman with a touch minimalism when it comes to buying stuff, I have come up with some quick steps you can apply to take care of yourself.

It all starts with your environment, do you work in a mine with dust? Or do you work in an office with AC? The place where you spend most of your day can and will influence your skin. But these tips are gentle and universal to begin with,it works on dry skin, oily skin, you name it. My grandmother who passed away 6 months ago, gave me a recipe in my early teens when the acne, discoloration and oils started to surface like bees on MDMA.The recipe helped me tighten my pores which were larger than moon craters.

Start with making the mask or scrub as you want to call it and store in the fridge for later use. You will need:

  • brown sugar
  • honey
  • milk

That is really all you need, but before I go any further, keep in mind that consistency is a very important factor in skin-care. Not being consistent with your masks and scrubs will only slow down the process of your progress. Eating healthy and keeping a positive mind towards life will only make it better. There is no easier way to do this.

Start with…

  1. Washing your face with cold water first thing in the morning, this helps with waking up the skin, it is also good for the eyes as it helps them to relax and cleanse your vision for the day (ayurvedic treatment).
  2. Wait a couple of seconds and splash some warm water on your face to open up the pores.
  3. Apply the mask/scrub on the spots that needs reparation and really rub it in….gently.
  4. Wait for a couple minutes till you begin to feel the skin tightening, that means the honey is doing its magic.
  5. Rinse of with warm water, wait a little for the heat to wear off and splash cold water to close your pores again.

This is really all you have to do without a tag for a $300 facewash. I will never say the expensive products will not help because they actually do help, but a cheaper way for some of us can go a long way. Some of us have kids and 3 jobs, in-laws, ugh, some of us have a studentloan, etc. So as a cheap person myself, I could not help but take care of my skin old-school-style.
