#QT- Azeeza Sanni
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.
What’s your skin type?
I have sensitive oily skin
What are your skin concerns?
An overly shiny T-zone oilier than my already oily face, which tends to cause breakouts in those areas and issues with acne scars
How would you describe your skincare routine?
Quick and mostly natural.
Talk us through your skincare routine:
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!
I wash my face with the Face Shop Herbal Foaming Cleanser
D-I-Y Rosewater mixed with tea tree oil as my toner
Pure aloe vera gel as a moisturizer
Aveeno’s Positively Radiant face moisturizer to seal it all up
Vaseline on my lips and SPF last of all
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
Followed by My D-I-Y Rose Water Toner on any problem spots
Then a Vitamin C serum
I moisturize with Nature Republic green tea emulsion
Whipped Raw shea butter to lock it all in
and castor oil on my brows and lashes
What’s a new addition you have made to your skincare routine? How are you finding it?
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.
How often do you mask?
Two or three times a week
Sheet or Clay Masks?
What’s your favourite mask(s) to use? Why?
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
What’s your superhero skincare product? The product you cannot live without
Hmm... I’m torn between aloe vera gel and tea tree oil. I love them both!
What’s the best skincare tip you have been given? Who gave you?
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.
What advice will you give someone with your skin type/ with similar skin concerns to you?
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!
