Hectic few weeks but I'm back with another #QT! Incase you missed it #QTS (cuties) is a spotlight series on different people's skincare routine, with different skin issues or concerns. Celebrating everyone's skin, flaws and all.
My second #QT is a friend that has become family and basically my right hand, Azeeza! She has let me experiment with masks on her several times and was probably one of the first people I asked to be a part of this. If you follow Qskin on instagram you have probably seen her doing my Tumeric mask.
Azeeza has fairly sensitive and oily skin, prefers to use more natural products on her skin [She's the queen of D-I-Y] and like the last QT Chisara, [me especially right now!], struggles with acne scars.
My name is Azeeza Sanni, I’m from Nigeria and live in Mauritius. I am in my early 20s.
I have sensitive oily skin
An overly shiny T-zone oilier than my already oily face, which tends to cause breakouts in those areas and issues with acne scars
Quick and mostly natural.
I recently discovered The Face Shop, a Korean beauty brand in Mauritius and bought some new products to add to my skincare routine. I didn't think I needed a serum because of my oily skin but everyone needs a serum!
The Banana Boat baby [Because if it's good enough for babies then 🤷🏽♀️] for everyday use and the Noreva SPF goes perfect under Makeup.
Once the day is done I use good old Dudu Osun to wash my face, sometimes mixing it in with Simple’s kind to skin smoothing facial scrub to exfoliate. Depending on if I wore makeup that day or not, if not its used twice a week
Bifida Serum is my newest addition and so far so good, I like how supple my skin feels afterwards. This in combination with the Vitamin C Serum has made my skin look brighter.
Two or three times a week
Freeman’s Brightening peel off gel mask, infused with green tea and orange blossom, I love how moisturized my skin is afterwards, I do feel brighter over the time I’ve used it. Or an Aztec clay mask mixed with turmeric, this masks makes my skin feel extra clean, and it minimizes my pores
Hmm... I’m torn between aloe vera gel and tea tree oil. I love them both!
Before my skin care regimen life began, my mum always told me “less is more” and not to overload my skin with products. This is something I try to live by and use as little chemicals on my skin as possible.
Don’t do too much, only do what you need to and let your skin go through the process of healing itself. Also, what you eat is always reflects on your skin, so be mindful of your diet and eat for your skin!
