Skin type: Normal

Skin type: Regular-Dry.
Secrets: When my face feels more dry than usual, I use Vichy Nutrilogie . But day to day I just use baby wash. I do lush masks like once a month. I like to exfoliate like every third day (which helps a LOT). My skin is pretty good acne-wise but I get a lot of blackheads! Biore strips are my holy grail for blackheads. I do them once every 2 months. If you have blackheads, they are your solution!

Skin type: All
Secret: I spent hundreds of dollars investing in expensive eye creams and I didn’t find that one was any better than the other. Worse than that, I learned that there were many harmful chemicals in them. My aunt (who has amazing skin and barely any wrinkles under her eyes) told me her secret: homemade under eye cream. She told me to mix 5 scoops of vitamin \E oil with 5 gel cvaps of evening primrose oil and mix it up into a container. I’ve been using this every day for a year and I noticed such a difference! Best of all: it’s organic and cheap!

Skin type: Dry
Secrets: When I used to put foundation on it would look a bit cakey and I hated that. A friend told me to put a light coat of Oil of Olay’s SPF lotion and let it dry a little bit before I put my makeup on. This saved my skin! It made my makeup go on flawlessly.

Skin type: Normal (Oily in the Summer, Dry in the Winter)
Secrets: I use this face line I brought from my hydra facial place it’s called Zo-medical. It just consists of face wash, toner and exfoliate. The Clarsonic is amazing (Zo medical). It’s for acne skin but it’s made a big difference for me.

Skin type: Combination
Secrets: The best product I’ve ever used for my face is coconut oil! Overnight I put coconut oil around my eyes and lips for strengthening the skin and eyelashes. Eucerin for your lips is also amazing. It’s not addictive for your lips so a little goes a long way. I have combination skin so I wash my face with baby shampoo because it’s very gentle and it’s an amazing cleanser. I’ve been doing this for months with amazing results!

Skin Type: Normal/Combination
Secrets: I have a fantastic 3-step regimen that works wonders for me. I use coconut oil to remove makeup, rose water to tone, and F.A.B cleanser. Try it even once and you’ll see a difference! I also just started using bio oil to help with hyper pigmentation

Skin type: Combination-Oily/Acne Prone.
Secrets: After a lot of trial-and-error- I found that some products that worked for me are Dr Belter line A- lotion, Rejuvenating Cleanser and Mask (once a week after exfoliating with St Ives apricot scrub or Clarasonic). My main skin habits include: hydrafacial ever few months, always wash face before going to bed and exfoliate at least 2x weekly. This helps me a lot! I also use Neutrogena all-in-one wipes to remove makeup which works amazingly well!

Skin type: Combination/Oily.
Secrets: My holy grail products are Eminence and Mush products. I find with my skin the more natural I keep it the better it is. I use salt scrub exfoliate and Eminence Stone Crop Facial Wash. I have problem skin but honestly it’s all diet. The more unhealthy, I eat the worse my skin is. Water keeps my skin clear. The more hydrated I am the better my skin is! Water make all the difference.
