I have combination to dry skin. My main concerns are blemishes and dry skin. I like my routines to be simple.  I use Clinique’s Anti-Blemish Solution for both my morning and night skin care. At night, I use the night cream. 


I am in love with body oils… pure high quality oils. The Marula Body Oil from Nyla Marula Beauty is my holy grail. It is ultra-hydrating and keeps skin glowing all day! On a daily basis, I just add Marula Oil to my body creams

I am also crazy about coffee scrubs – the best weekly exfoliating beauty tool I know.

I use the Nilotiqa Hair Care products… after all, they are created for my hair. I use sulfate shampoos once a month, then use the Replenishing Conditioner as my weekly go to co-wash treatment. The conditioner is also great for deep conditioning.

Then I use the Detangling Cream on my dreadlocks as it doubles up as a deep moisture treatment. I use this after every wash.

I am in love with the Nourishing Oil for my scalp and hair edges. I use it daily on my edges [my hair is sometimes heavy and pulls on the edges if I tie it up]

The Deep Moisture Butter is perfect every other day when I feel that my hair is drying out… especially in winter.

Self Care

I drink huge amounts of warm water and have started my morning running again! It keeps me grounded and sets the tone for my day. Running and working out also help me clear my mind and keep my stress levels low!


My favorite foundation is the Mac Studio Fix Fluid. I love the Clinique Long Last Glosswear for my lips. My favorite sunscreen is the Nivea Anti-Ageing Face Sun Cream.
