The digital entrepreneur’s tips to success
A GOOD SKINCARE R OUTINE IS EVERYTHING
Skincare plays a vital role in my life. A good routine, plus the right products, will leave your skin feeling and looking radiant. My routine includes cleansing and moisturising twice a day. Adding a serum two to three times a week and doing a good exfoliation once a week. I’ve been using Pond’s for many years – it’s my skincare staple and oers the best results. My mom and gran also used Pond’s, which makes my partnership with the skincare brand even more sentimental.
TARGET YOUR TREATMENTS
I have combination skin, which means it gets dry at some parts and oily in others. I focus on exfoliating my oily T-zone first, then being more gentle when it comes to the rest of my face.
WHEN TRAVELLING, MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE!
My skin and hair suer the most when I travel. Because of changes in climate, dehydration sets in. I make sure to drink lots of liquids, avoid exfoliating and always have sunscreen on hand.
MY GO- TO LOOK IS STRAIGHT AND SLEEK
I wear wigs, so my hairstyle changes quite often. On my natural hair, I love Tresemmé’s Keratin Smooth shampoo, conditioner, mask and oil. I especially love the mask, because well-nourished hair grows better.
TO BE SUCCESSFUL YOU NEED TO BE CONSISTENT
As a fashion and beauty blogger, being disciplined is important. It’s easy to get derailed when you’re your own boss. But whatever you commit to, give it 100%, fulfil all expectations and deliver on your promises.
THE BEST ADVICE FOR MY TEEN SELF
Your skin will clear up eventually, sunscreen is not only for fair complexions and stop comparing yourself to your friends – you’re all beautiful the way God made you.
