Take us through your beauty routine
In the morning I try and drink room temperature water. I drink about 60cl then I wash my face and cleanse.
At night, I take off my makeup, wash my face properly and use coconut oil to remove any excess dirt on my face. Afterwards, I use a face mask for a deep cleanse.
Name 3 products you cannot live without
– A facial serum that gets rid of black heads and pimples
– A cleanser
– Black eye pencil
What’s the best beauty advice you have ever received?
Feed your body right and it will show outwardly. If you’re taking care of yourself properly, you won’t even need makeup.
Eat a lot of vegetables, drink water, use SPF and be kind to your skin.
What’s your take on bleaching?
If you’re originally fair and because of sun damage, get darker, then it’s fine. If you want to tone or bleach and spend your money on products then it’s your life.
Then again, make sure you weigh the pros and cons and make sure you know exactly what you are signing up for. Do yourself a favour and research the products you are using because some may be more harmful than you first imagined.
What’s your take on plastic surgery?
If you feel there’s any part of your body you want to make smaller there’s this thing called exercise that works. It takes dedication and hard work but it does work. However, if you feel you want to go for surgery, I would say ”do you” but be careful.
I wish people would love themselves enough.
Going as far as surgery mostly stems from lack of self-love, not being confident in who you are. Cut off the people who think you’re not enough. If it’s yourself, talk to someone; a therapist or God. Make sure you speak to someone before you make that leap as far as surgery.
I love you and you are OK the way you are.
In life, you’re not here for aesthetics, you’re here to make a mark.
