Self Care

 

hey girls,

so self care has been a huge trend and I want to be apart of that wave. so here is my self care routine❤️.

my morning routine and my night routine are just pretty much the same. Side note  you’ll be surprised at how many people who do not do the same

routine in the morning for the night, also comment down below your night and morning routine or if your night routine is the same morning and at night.

Soap

 The very first thing I do is take a shower. I like to use “Dove” soap or “ST Ives”I have very soft and oily skin so these two products work best for me. I do have  not a particular scent I just used what smells good to me. you can get these two products at and local store.

Face Soap ✨

while in the shower after I wash up my body, I do not! wash my face with body soap. so I use face soap I love!, love!, love! ST Ives face soap, I personally use Apricot scrub, avocado scrub.I also like to use Simple face soap as well, These products work best for my skin.

Lotion✨

when it comes to face lotion and body lotion I use dove, ST Ives and Simple face lotion, I do not like to use body lotion for my face. Prefer to use lotion that is made for my face.

Twisting Hair✨

After I dry off lotion up I then twist my hair. I only use one product and one product only when I am twisting my hair I use Shea Moisture to wash my hair but I do not use it to twist my hair as much anymore. I now use coconut oil which you can get from your local store which should be located in your oil section.

Untwisting my hair✨

To untwist my hair I use The coconut oil to and rub it in my hair before I untwist it, then I of course untwist my hair.

After I complete all of these steps I brush my teeth, put on some chapstick on and then I am done.

hope you enjoyed my self care tips and ideas❤️.

 

 

 

 

 

I did not film myself doing the color swatching, I kinda felt like it was not really needed ( but if you love me to i will ☺️) but I took pictures!

For the ones who do not know what color swatching is, when you take like a template or just a blank piece of paper and you mix different colors together to figure a color scheme for your drawing or painting, etc.

for this instance I did my drawing digital, so I did the drawing on my phone using adobe draw. I did the drawing in Black & White(as above). I then saved the drawing, and inserted it into to word ( you can use anything) I made the picture in a tile format and printed out the picture. I got this idea from a artist on youtube, it was like a light bulb went off when I saw that, I never thought to do that.

Of course after I printed it out I grabbed my prismacolor pencils i started swatching using the picture above.

Usually when i color swatch i grab one color …meaning I will use different shades of green,etc. I kept the all the skin color the same I like to stick to my skin tone.

I find drawing the image on my phone and printing it helps make the draw a lot more crisp and clean and better looking. Also helps me so I won’t mess up on the image which is very heartbreaking I find doing this method makes this a whole lot easier. Another method you can do is draw the image on your sketchbook, take a picture of it, then what ever you use redraw the image and then print it.
