My MB is where I share ALL my favorites in beauty. Below you will see my most current beauty regimen, a link to the most recent capsule wardrobe although I’ve decided to no longer create them, as well as a link to a complete tour of my minimalist home. You will notice that my beauty regimen is extremely simple and is actually now almost completely zero waste! I used to not wear makeup daily, but have been recently enjoying some simple DIY makeup recipes as well as some new favorites shared below. I also have sensitive combination acne prone skin, that is not as oily or acne prone as it use to be thanks to using the right oils, gentle detoxing, and eating tons of raw fruits and veggies as well as drinking lots of water.
Organic Neroli Hydrosol with Organic Helichyrsum Essential Oil
I don’t wear sunscreen daily because our skin absorbs vitamin D from the sun. It takes 2-6x longer for those with melanin-rich skin to process vitamin D from the sun. After learning this I am not sure how often I will be wearing sunscreen in general. I’ve also noticed that my skin is not as sensitive to the sun as it used to be now that I am eating much healthier.
I also make my own DIY Body Cleansers to alternate with as soap is too alkaline for skin daily in my opinion.
This year I started my loc journey and am currently working on a new hair care regimen. My starter locs are with braids. I shared more on my reasons for starting locs in this article if you are interested. In the meantime below is my hair care regimen for loose curly hair.
1. Cleanse & Condition
Diluted Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
I’ve been playing around with conditioning moisturizer recipes. A super simple one is mixing 1-2 tablespoons of shea butter to every 1 cup of flaxseed gel. More on this in my zero waste curly hair care update.
3. Deep Condition
Body Art Quality Henna + Amla + Coconut Milk
My makeup is not 100% zero waste, yet I do make my own face powder, bronzer, and lip balm. I’ve also started using 100% Pure makeup again especially after finding out that specific stores collect used containers for recycling.
3. Lip Balm
Gabriel Mascara in “black”
Updated Minimalist Wardrobe Series to come!
