My Face Cleansing Routine

One thing I've learned is stick to what you know best and what's best for you.  I have sensitive skin and have struggled through a mass of regimens of fails and wants.

Let me say that I'm not a licensed anesthetician nor dermatologist and I don't play one on TV. I'm only sharing what is working for me in maintaining healthy skin for my face. It may seem a bit much, but hey, it works for me. I often wear a full face of makeup during workdays. If I get breakouts I know exactly why: eating too much chocolate, grease, and/ or sweets.  Daytime (Morning): Wash- Neutrogena A

A tell-tale sign is always the perfect skin and hair. I have an aunt with perfect skin (Mom's side). One of my sisters has a lighter complexion.

I have very sensitive skin, super thick hair that's long when straightened and extremely curly when not (4c hair type), 'Babylon lashes' (that's what a makeup artist once told me), a no-nonsense attitude, and nurturing guidance.
