Skin care has always been an important yet exhausting part of my life. It doesn’t matter if my skin is brown with more melanin, I still get sun poisoning within minutes if I do not protect myself with proper SPF. I learned this lesson the hard way when I was a kid playing at the pool. Days of applying Benadryl to my itchy-sore skin didn’t stop me from going outside and playing. But as I got older, I started paying more attention to my skin care regimen, and asked myself:

Do I want to feel uncomfortable while neglecting myself? 

OR

Do I want to feel fabulous and radiant while pampering myself?

And thus the journey began to find the perfect skin regimen which required the following criteria: 

1. Did not take too much time out of my day 

2. Was natural and not scented 

3. Provided my skin with noticeable benefits over time

I am proud to tell you that this regimen has been tested for over 10 years, and I have gotten many compliments over the years. So many, that I want to share my regimen with you. Regardless of where I go, I always carry travel-sized products with me. However I recommend buying the larger bottles and placing them in carry-on sized containers
