    Do you find it is less smooth in winter or just in general? I heard shea butter is good

    What's your skin type (dry, oily, combo, sensitive, acne prone etc)? It'll be easier to find what type of moisturiser you're after, there's also masks you can buy at any stores that dedicated into hydrating and produce healthy, glowing skin. Exfoliating is really great if you want soft skin that looks brighter and healthier.

    i’m south asian too so ig we should be close in colour? i’m fenty 350 if you want to compare
    i stick to just natural products and i think it works so well, it’s a lot cheaper too, even tho i wear loads of makeup my skin is pretty decent so i think it’s bc of my skincare routine
    i wash my face morning and night with african black soap. it REALLY cleans your face, the dryness caused by it goes away after you moisturise. if you have sensitive skin it may not be the best for you but definitely would recommend to try it out
    and for moisturiser at night, or on days i’m not wearing makeup (barely ever lol) i use shea butter. i warm it up w my fingers and put it all over my face, it’s really helped w smoothness and makes your face so dewy and glowy
    for moisturiser before makeup i use rosehip oil, it’s got anti ageing properties too for the future, it’s a lot less heavy than shea butter but still really moisturiser and helps with making makeup application smoother
    the only “unnatural” product i use is the mario badescu drying lotion for any pimples, this helps get rid of them quickly
    all of these can be bought on amazon, and i get the drying lotion from beauty bay
    i hope this helped!!

    For dry skin, have tried mixing a little jojoba oil in some she's butter? It's so great and hydrating, makes my skin feel so smooth. For a mask I would recommend using virgin coconut oil and mixing it raw honey and adding some oatmeal and then leave for 10-20min. This is a great exfoliating and moisturising mask, and I always get smooth, glowy skin afterwards (make sure to moisturise after it).
