Acne breakouts

Sometimes the reasons for your acne breakouts is simple, You!

Acne breakouts come as a result of a build up of oil and dead skin clogging the hair follicles. The forehead, nose and chin area aka the T-zone are most prone to breakouts especially on oily skin therefore more attention should be paid to this area. We can’t stress how important having a skincare routine is using products suitable for your skin type and condition (having a skincare routine isn’t the same as overly washing or tugging at the skin, this only strips the skin of its natural goodness!) and sticking to a regimen that works for you.

Even the most perfect skin would be prone to breakouts when it’s exposed to oil, dust etc daily blocking the pores and when left uncared for flares up with blemishes.

Acne breakouts

(Grazia)

But just like we mentioned earlier you may actually be the one causing your skin to react this way

Popping Pimples

When you see these unwanted visitors anytime, DON’T pop them. Instead apply topical creams to dry them off. As tempting as it maybe to pop them, you’d only end up pushing bacteria into the skin which is bad for it.

Can’t Keep Hands Away

If you’re a ‘face toucher’ yep, you’re causing your own breakouts. When you touch your face during the day you risk transferring germs from everywhere that hand has been to your face (eww) which we definitely cause the face to react by breaking out! Before you wash/apply anything to your face, make sure your hands are clean.

Touching your face causes breakouts (Balance Me Beautiful)

You Don’t Clean Your Phone

DO you know your phone has over 10 times the amount of germs found in toilets? Yup studies reveal that and if you’re one who don’t clean your phone regularly you may just be the reason your face is breaking out.

You Wear Makeup To Sleep

You know the drill, if you wear makeup to bed you end up clogging your pores and of course breakouts! So whatever you do, no matter how tired, take off your makeup every night and cleanse that face if you want it to remain flawless.

Acne breakouts

Not Deep Cleansing

Washing your face is different from washing it properly. You have to be sure there is no trace of makeup/oil residue left when you’re cleaning your face, if you don’t reach deep with a deep cleanser, there are chances you’d breakout especially if you have oily skin.

Your Hairstyle

If your hair falls on your face you are definitely causing your own skin issues this is because oils and products from your hair get on your face and clogs your pores resulting in serious breakouts.

A lot more from using too much products, not handling the delicate facial skin gently and other factors are reasons you break out often, if you want this to stop you’ve got to pay more attention!

Which ones are you guilty of? Share your acne breakouts stories and how you tackle them below. If you have blemished skin, see products that can work for you here.

Natural Hair Care Tips To Help You Slay Even When It's Raining!

Natural hair care tips vary, especially when the seasons change. What you do when it’s dry isn’t the same as what you do when its raining. Steps change, routines might intensify and you generally need to be more attentive!
Natural Hair Care Tips To Help You Slay Even When It's Raining!

(Curls Understood)

Rainy season comes with a host of red flags that you need to be aware of. And we’ve got them all right here!

  1. Rain water is not only dirty, but acidic and brings humidity. That’s why you need to be more vigilant when it comes to cleaning your hair. During the rainy season, your hair is exposed to more dirt and dust, and this could lead to itchy scalp, breakage, brittle hair, dandruff etc. The key is to wash the hair more often, even more than you do on a regular basis. And if you find yourself under the rain, wash your hair immediately you get home.
  2. The humidity can make your hair frizzy ad brittle so it is important to condition immediately after a wash. Avoid adding chemicals to your hair by using a mild conditioner like a vinegar rinse, olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil massage.

  3. Cover your hair up as much as possible. Loose hair gets dirty easier and so it should be covered up more. Covering up the hair is also great because rain water can weaken the hair shaft and lead to hair loss.

  4. When it’s the rainy season, it is best to avoid styling products like gels, hair serum and the likes. The chemicals from these products make the hair flat, greasy and will attract more dirt from the atmosphere. All these products can also lead to infections, itchiness and dandruff.
  5. Last but definitely not the least, drink plenty of water. It might seem like you have enough water around you, but nothing leads to healthy hair like drinking lots of water.

Share your healthy natural hair care tips with us! And if you have 4c hair, here’s an easy natural hairstyle for the weekend!

Black tie event

Cosmopolitan)

Black tie is usually a dress code for functions that start after 6pm. The intricacies of this look applies more to men. The ones who may own or may not own a tuxedo but for women this simply means wearing a dress.

If the invitation says ‘black tie preferred’ you’re supposed to appear formal and elegant. For the most part if it says ‘black tie mandatory’ then its strictly a black tie aka formal event. A woman in this case has options with her dress, she can opt for a full length or a cocktail dress but it’s appropriate for the style to not be revealing. It can be glamorous but definitely not slutty.

Black tie

Toke Makinwa goes bold with her evening styles

For women to be spot on go for a glam floor length dress making sure its weather and venue appropriate, fits great and the fabric is elegant but by all means stay away from stretchy fabrics.  Choose elegant earrings according to your hairstyle; if for instance your hair is packed in a sleek ponytail/updo you can go for sparkly statement earrings as accessory. With this look, a clutch with a pretty but comfortable pair of heels will also make great accessories. Remember to keep the glitz and shine minimal, classy and elegant.

Black tie

For men Tuxedo jackets either full length, single or double breasted or 3-piece suit is perfect for the occasion. The tuxedo shirt, patent dress shoe and bowtie should also be the right fit. Men can make a statement splurging on cufflinks, pocket squares or lapel pins to stand out.

(@denolagrey)

Of course you can’t go wrong in the traditional black, midnight blue may also be an option depending on what vibes more with your personal style. So there you are sorted for your next black tie event. So the next time you get an invitation saying black tie optional, black tie preferred or optional you know what to do and by all means bring your kind of edginess to it!
