Hello my soul sisters! I am back writing you an article on how to take care of your skin step by steps.
It’s very important to prepare the blank canvas before applying the colors.
The nicer the skin, the better the foundation and glow. Goodbye pimples, blackheads and open pores!!

As you already know, I mentioned in my previous posts that I am transitioning to healthier cosmetics and skincare choices. I go for the most natural skincare lines adapted to ethnic skins.

Not long ago I have received samples of this line called Acnedote made by Alba Botanica, indeed a great antidote for acne.

I don’t suffer from acne but I find that the main ingredient they use helps my pores to stay clean and tight. It is the maximum strength of 2% of salicylic acid (naturally derived from willow bark extract) that helps banishing existing pimples and prevent new ones.

In a week I saw a clearer skin!

The exfoliator, the deep pore wash, the astringent, the invisible treatment gel and the moisturizer are totally now part of my skin regimen!
It does not contain synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, parabens or phthalates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate, sodium myreth sulfate, no animal testing.
Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing the skin are the three key steps to maintaining healthy, beautiful skin. Ethnic skin care requires special attention because of the skin being prone to dark spots, combination skin (oily and dry in certain spots especially on the face), discoloration, and other conditions that affect the skin. Here I will try to answer the common questions we all have in mind regarding methods to cleansing the skin.

What cleanser should I use?

Cleansing with gentle cleansers is essential in order to remove build-up from the skin without stripping the natural oils from its surface. One should cleanse the skin in a circular motion using mild cleansers, those with low percentages of active ingredients and no harsh detergents, dyes, and hardeners. Mild cleansers may be synthetic but I go for the natural option 100 percent! They are not drying to the skin, yet they do not leave behind oil and dirt, remove pore clogging residue.
How often should I cleanse my face?
This actually depends on the individual. Oftentimes, people cleanse their faces depending on the results that they observe. Upon my research and evaluating my results, I would recommend cleansing the face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. This is not to be confused with deep cleanses, masks, etc. The twice a day cleanses are the simple cleanses to be followed by a toner and a moisturizer. Masks and deep pore cleansers should typically be used no more than twice a week, otherwise they could potentially be harsh to the skin.

Exfoliants are the elements that strip away dead skin cells. Not to worry though; new skin cells develop after the exfoliation process. Exfoliation is a healthy and safe process for the skin. One should use mild exfoliants and avoid using harsh and/or abrasive surfaces that may scar and irritate the skin. Exfoliation may be used to rejuvenate the skin. You may choose to use a soft facial cloth, a sponge, fingers or the tool of your choice to serve as a light exfoliant and to stimulate the process. Examples of mild exfoliants are salts, sugars, grapeseed or rosehip seed powder, jojoba beads, poppy seeds, or Anecdote face and body scrub.
My advice try the whole line, it is cost effective! Very affordable!
But ladies remember better be safe than sorry, for problematic skin condition, always consult with your dermatologist before starting treatments and regimens for yourself. This information is not a substitute for your doctor’s advice.

Voilà le tour est joué! À bientôt!
