You’ve read the title and I know what you are probably thinking, and NO! These aren’t the lyrics to the Queen’s hit song. This, sis, is the cheat sheet to your perfect African skin.

We all know how our millennial influencers post their morning and night time skin routines; chanting “serums” this, and “tone with” that. To be quite honest, I weep silently while I watch, because I wouldn’t know where to get the products, and to hit the nail on the head, how would I even be able to afford the Fenty Beauty 3 set kit for your skin?

Enough of the gloom… let’s get to the glam. I’m here to share with you some of my hacks to good skin, while saving your pocket from drowning in expenses! Imagine that… a perfect natural glow, with no name dropping. Just you, and, your happy poreless skin so!

So, let’s get to it!

  • Brown sugar

Brown Sugar is one of the best exfoliators for the skin. The crystals help to remove dead skin, dirt, and excess oil left on the skin. Brown sugar is not abrasive and is good on sensitive skin. Using brown sugar, you can easily make your own homemade scrub. In your kitchen, just take 2 teaspoons of olive oil and half a lemon. Create your own sandy scrub and see how your brown skin turns into brown sugar just by using it 2 to 3 times a week.

  • Baking soda, I got baking soda!!

You hear them speak about ‘Toners’. Well, here I am to give you the best affordable toner you have ever heard of – Baking Soda. This kitchen ingredient can be used to lighten the skin. Get me clear, I said ‘Lighten’ NOTBleach’. This ingredient corrects tone impurities on the skin gradually, and gives you a uniform skin tone. All you need is a tablespoon of baking soda and half a lemon. Create a paste twice a week and see wonders being worked.

  • Ms. Potato head

Potatoes are not only delicious, but they can also be used to correct dark circles under your eyes. No need to pound on the concealer if you have nothing to conceal. Just take a small potato, grate that yummy sucker while it’s raw, and apply under your eyes. You can use this method as often as you like, until you get the results that you want.

  • Moisturise!

We have gone through scrubs and toners, now it’s time to moisturise, and its back to the kitchen. Olive oil is an essential asset. It is high in vitamin E, it is an antioxidant, and an anti-aging agent. Now tell me, who needs a serum? If you do apply makeup, this is also perfect. Olive oil can also be used to lift all the makeup off your skin.
