As a skincare enthusiast, I've been quite obsessed with skincare products and how or if they work for my particular skin type. Its important to know if that expensive moisturizer with SPF is actually working or if you put it on after or before your serum. Knowing how to apply skincare products is so important in order for your skin to flourish.
Below you will find our recommended steps for skin product application for both day & evening.

MOISTURE. MOISTURE. MOISTURE. Moisturize!! Its so so important that you consistently give your skin hydration to prevent early winkles in our pretty little skin. During the day , opt for a moisturizer with SPF so you can skip what would otherwise be Step 5 in our routine. During the evening, we recommend a dab of our lightweight, Sweet Almond Oil. Perfect for skin hydration and clears dark circles and lightens acne scars in a week or so. l put a bit on my edges at night too (edges always, always need extra TLC)
Pro Tip: Products go from thinnest to thickest application with our steps above.
Always start your skincare routine after brushing and right before slumber.

Dry skin is a problem we all may have that can quite possibly be frustrating if you do not know how to get rid of it. We have a solution to your problem and it is one word: EXFOLIATE!
That's right. Exfoliate. Exfoliation is so important in keeping your skin healthy, clear and moisturized. As the days go by, your skin is not always good at shedding its dead skin cells as well as it use to when you were younger (even just 1 week younger!). Physical exfoliants such as body scrubs are the perfect way to reveal your fresh, healthy skin underneath.
After exfoliating, your steps to moisturize are just as crucial. Follow up after your body scrub session with a heavy body butter and oil sealant to lock in all the work you just put in as well as the moisture and new skin you've scrubbed to reveal.
Exfoliate 3x a week.
Our 'Raw Shea Butter' and 'Sweet Almond Oil' are perfect combination products to use after a body scrub.
Body Scrub Recommendations
Salt is a great choice when you desire an overall body exfoliation, eliminating the rough, dry patches of dead skin.
If you’re looking to exfoliate your face, you’ll want to use something finer than salt, as it can be a little too abrasive. Fine sugar is the perfect, gentle alternative for a physical exfoliant for your face..
Pictured below, l purchased the Shea Butter Exfoliating Body Scrub for very dry skin. This is my holy grail all season round! It reveals softer, glowing skin after application with a tough sponge (or honestly even your good ol' hands.) Its made of exfoliating salt grains and organic sugar which in then results in an oil-based scrub with the perfect scent. It it noted that the shea butter used in this product comes from my homeland and where SkinByAme products are handmade, Ghana! The sponge I use daily and for my sugar scrub bath days is phenomenal. Pictured above, it is a Body Polisher (Made in Taiwan) that exfoliates and smoothes the skin. It is made with recycled polyester and I prefer this sponge because it is tougher and better for the skin rather than a rag or a soft sponge that just leaves soap on the surface of your skin. It is machine washable but I change mine every 3 months or so because it does lose it dullness after some time. Body Scrub Priced originally at $20, currently $10... Body Polisher $8, in store or online at thebodyshop.com
Below are 3 other salt and sugar body scrub products/companies , personally recommended by the Owner of SkinByAme Natural Skincare.
No matter how you choose to exfoliate your skin, make sure it’s a part of your routine!
