Thanks to my friends at Zakia's Morocco, I've discovered the secret to super soft skin. Today, I'm going to share it with you!
I want to preface this post by letting y'all know I have extremely dry skin, but I avoid lotion at all costs unless it's winter. My mom has amazing, moisturized skin and credits it to always applying lotion after showering, but I just can't get myself in that routine. Zakia's Morocco sent me a set of products to try - a loofah, Moroccan Black Soap, a Kessa Exfoliating Glove, and 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil - and I was so excited because I love a good beauty routine.
I started by using the Moroccan Black Soap. Just to be sure I was getting a good feel for the product, I used it after a day at the pool. I was sticky from sunscreen/sweaty/covered in bug bites. #pleasant You know how sometimes your skin just feels like super clean? This was one of those moments for me.
I followed up by using the Kessa Royal Exfoliating Glove. I was a teensy bit nervous because it said that it could remove a layer of your skin. (I have a weak stomach.) In my situation, I didn't lose a whole lot of skin, but my skin did feel amazingly soft afterwards... I'm talking soft like a baby's skin!
Post-shower, I dried off and broke out my favorite product of the bunch - the Argan Oil, aka my new beauty secret weapon! I applied the oil to my entire body, being a little more liberal with it on places that I deal with extremely dry skin. After body application, I applied a little more to my cuticles and let them soak for a few minutes before rinsing it off my hands.
I really thought that using oil on my body would make my apartment gross and greasy, but it really didn't. I don't shower in the mornings, and my skin felt moisturized, but not oily. And my skin had this beautiful goddess like sheen to it. And the sheen was still there after I showered the next day! (If that's not enough to make you love it, I don't know what will!)
After a little trial and error, I think it's best to do this routine 2-3 times a week.
I'm probably the most annoying person in my friend group, because whenever I discover some amazing beauty tip, I want all of my friends to give it a try and get on board! So I'm challenging y'all to give oil a try instead of lotion one night and see what a huge difference it makes.
