4 Skin Care Tips For Nigerian Women

Taking care of your skin is important. One secret to looking good is a healthy skin. Also don’t forget that one of the first signs of aging begins with the skin. So pay attention to these tips for clear, healthy and youthful looking skin.

1. Understand your skin type

This is key to knowing how to treat your skin. Skin type has nothing to do with complexion and is more about whether you have dry skin or oily skin. If you have oily skin, then moisturizing on a regular basis is doing you more harm than good and if your skin type is dry and you are not moisturizing regularly, your skin will give you trouble.

2. Use a Simple and Safe Daily Care Routine for your face

Here’s the thing, it’s not about washing your face with soap and then heading out to face your day; you need to give your face more attention that that. And if you sleep with make up on, may heaven forgive you! When it comes to your face, have a simple care routine. Use a gentle cleanser, wipe a toner on your face and neck if you want to and then moisturize. The frequency with which you do this would depend on your skin type.

3. Protect your skin from the harsh sun

The Nigerian sun can be harsh and as a Nigerian woman, you need to learn how to protect your skin from the UV rays. Just because your skin tone is dark does not mean that the sun cannot damage your skin. It just means that you don’t see the damage, which is worse. So always use a cream that has sun protection.

Don’t go out into direct sunlight if you can help it and if you need to be outside, use a small umbrella to protect your skin. Your 80 year old self will thank you!

4. Use make up that suits your skin

These days Nigerian women don’t have to suffer in silence; we have lots of make up and cosmetic products that are made for women of color so stick with those. They’re good for your skin.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I have tested dozens of facial oils over the last few months to find our top picks.I was looking for oils that produced tangible results (super smooth + even skin tone + feels great!), are made from plants (not chemicals), and are a great value for the price. If you have very dry skin, try putting on a clean moisturizer first followed by an oil. If you have oily skin, try replacing your moisturizer with one of these clean oils.
    By far and away, Naked + Thriving’s REJUVENATE Restorative Facial Oil was the favorite among the group. Aside from the brand’s cheeky name (which I love) this oil had the most visible results from the moment we used it! I saw a reduction in facial lines, more even skin tone and I literally could not stopping touching our faces (so soft!) and a little goes a long way since it is highly concentrated; they say a bottle lasts 3-4 months, but I guess even longer.
