Summer is almost here, which means clothing will get smaller allowing for more skin exposure. With that exposure, you’re gonna want your skin to look its best. Because you guys are always asking me what I use on my skin I’m going to walk you step by step through my super simple summer skincare routine. I’m going to focus on the three main products that I’ve been using on my skin for a number of years that have kept my melanin glowing.

Step One: Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliating is necessary because it removes all those dead skin cells off your body. It also unclogs your pores and reduces dry skin. So while I’m in the shower and my skin is wet I use H20+ Sea Salt Body Scrub. This product is very fine and will glide across your body. I recommend exfoliating your body no more than two to three times a week. Anything more than that can you can risk stripping your skin of its natural oils and we don’t want that if we’re trying to have this melanin pop.

Step Two: Apply oil to your skin

After rinsing off the exfoliant I apply Bolden 100% Natural Shea Oil with vitamin E to my wet skin. This oil is so silky and it goes on like butter. The best thing about this oil is that you can use it all over. I haven’t used it on my face or hair as I have different oils I use for those areas, but it’s great for those of you who love a multi-purpose oil. After I cover my body with Bolden I’ll air dry my skin then blot any excess water from my skin.

Step Three: Seal with body butter

Once I let my skin air dry I use Coconut Body Butter by The Body Shop. This keeps my skin hydrated and is what I consider to be a finishing touch on top of the Bolden oil. This butter smells amazing. It’s not heavy at all and it’s very airy making it perfect for the summer. Now if you’re into DIY like me then you can make your own body butter
