I’ve never been one to spend a lot of time on my skin care routine—I don’t even own makeup! But I do have a couple simple tricks that keep my skin looking great without much effort. Here’s how I do it:
Wash your face.
The first step to a healthy skin care routine is to wash your face. While this may seem obvious, it’s important to use the right products and techniques. The best way to ensure that you are doing so correctly is by using gentle cleansers, warm water and soft washcloths.
The second step in my simple skin care routine is washing one’s face twice per day: once in the morning when I wake up and again before going to bed at night. This keeps my pores clear of oil buildup and helps prevent acne breakouts (which I’ve struggled with since puberty).

Finding a shampoo and conditioner that works for your hair can be difficult. Whether you have thick or thin hair, curly or straight, black or white—there are so many options out there! That’s why I’ve created this list of the best shampoos and conditioners for black hair.
Look for ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil
Look for ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil. These are all great moisturizers that will help keep your hair soft and smooth.
However, just because a product contains one or two of these ingredients doesn’t mean it’s the right choice for you. If you look at the label of any shampoo or conditioner bottle and see only one or two of these ingredients listed (and not many others), it could be a sign that the product wasn’t made specifically for black hair care needs.
Make sure it’s sulfate-free.

If you’re worried about your hair, or simply looking to keep it healthy and strong, try these simple tips and tricks.
Wash your hair every two or three days
Washing your hair every day is not a good idea. It’s bad for your scalp, and it can strip away essential oils that keep your tresses looking shiny and healthy.
If you have oily or greasy roots, try using dry shampoo between washes to soak up excess oil without stripping away moisture from the rest of your locks. If you have fine hair that tends to get weighed down by buildup on its own, consider washing only once a week or every other week (but always use conditioner!). For those with dry scalps and thick strands that require extra care–like those with curly styles–a weekly wash should be sufficient to keep things fresh without drying out too much at once; however … Read more ... “Hair Care Tips to Grow Healthy Hair”
