10 Makeup Tips for African-American Skin


2. Exfoliate Regularly

Regardless of how great your makeup and brush selection is, it can’t look its best unless you’re taking care of your skin. Regular exfoliation gives your skin that soft, smooth, dewy glow that every woman wants. There’s no need to spend tons of money on high end exfoliators to see results, either.

Simply mix ¼ cup of brown sugar with enough extra virgin olive oil to create a paste. Use this mixture to gently scrub your damp face three times a week, then rinse with cool water and pat dry. You should start to notice an improvement in the texture and glow of your skin after the first use.
