Beauty Care: Natural Skin Care Products

Hey Curlies,

I've been getting a few questions about my skin care regimen and wondering if I use all natural products. While I do not always use all natural products on my skin, about 70 percent of my skin care routine is all natural and organic.

Here are a few products I've been using lately:

Let me start off by saying my skin is a combination of dry and oily. More oily in the t-zone and because it's winter time it chooses to be whatever it wants on a daily basis. I do not wear makeup often with the exception of mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow. Foundation is what usually causes me problems. I currently use the CoverGirl Queen collection in Cocoa shade.

The Avalon Organics line I discovered early this past summer. I was just browsing through Target for a new face wash. It caught my attention because it says its 70 percent organic and the cleanser was a gel. Usually creamy face washes dry out my skin. I absolutely love this wash! This is my second bottle and it is another must purchase for me. It lathers up great and smells of oranges. It's top ingredients are Aloe vera juice, water, orange peel and lemon peel.

I bought the toner after my first bottle of wash but I don't find myself using it as often. Point blank, it's not my favorite but it gets the job done.

The Grapefruit Acne Spot Treatment by Citrus Clear was sent to me by a company for review. I've been using it for about two months now and it really seems to work. I love that it's main ingredients are organic herbs, organic aloe vera juice and witch hazel.

I also use three other products on my skin including pure shea butter, aloe vera gel and an oil-free moisturizer from Walmart.

If you'd like to know more about my skin care regimen, step-by-step just let me know.
