Beauty Advice: You don’t have to put a hole in your purse to take care of your skin!

Hey Gods & Goddesses! It’s day 2 of a new fabulous week. Maybe the last week didn’t go well for you or you didn’t achieve the goals you set out to accomplish. But, irrespective of that, decide that this week you would pick yourself up and try again. Set new goals, pay attention to details- the opportunity you have been waiting for might just be in that little detail. Be determined that you will go on, no matter the road blocks you come across, but most importantly-BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!  “You have a clean slate every day you wake up. You have a chance every single morning to make that change and be the person you want to be. You just have to decide to do it. Decide today’s the day. Say it; THIS IS GOING to BE MY DAY”.   So, back to our beauty post for today: Skin Care!

Beauty Advice: 3 Skin Care Tips For Hot Lagos Weather!

Hi Gods & Goddesses! This Lagos weather- Hot, Hazy and Humid- makes your skin feel sticky and blah! The sweat just hangs around on your skin, instead of evaporating into the air! Not to add insult to injury, this sweat then mixes with your body’s natural oils and bacteria, forming a layer of slippery biofilm! Urgh!  According to experts, all that extra moisture on the surface can act like a magnifying glass, attracting the harsh sun and amplifying the damaging effects it has on your skin. Not pretty at all! My Sacred Beauty to the rescue! With tips that will guide you to take care of your skin, to avoid all that blah! 1. Exfoliate Look for formulas with fruit enzymes and smooth microbeads for a dual-action exfoliation. The hot season can bring on increased breakouts and can leave the skin with some residual dead skin cell build-up. There is increased oil flow as the temperature heats up more, which can get trapped underneath cellular build-up, resulting in clogged pores. The solution is to increase your exfoliation.
