My Skin Regimen

So my first non-hair post on this blog...

A little background on me, I suffer from severe acne. I get hormonal acne on my face when its almost shark week. And I have severe scarring on my back from when I had acne in puberty. So I am trying to work on fading my scars, as well as controlling my facial acne breakouts in order to minimise the aftermath.

My daily skin regimen is:

1. Wash face with lukewarm water using African black soap
2. Tone using an aloe based toner
3. Moisturise using a facial moisturiser with a minimum of SPF 15

Since I started the regimen with African black soap, I have been seeing improvement in my skin. The dark marks are fading slowly but surely, and my hormonal breakouts don't last long, and I do not scar from these anymore.

I am thinking of extending my facial regimen to solve my back acne issues. I will shower using only African black soap, and moisturise using something with SPF protection. Hopefully by the end of next year, my skin will have cleared up.


  1. Good luck with your skincare journey chica! I skin looks awful before shark week too! Oh the joys of being a woman right?!? *insert eyeroll* LOL
