The deeper we get into the fall season, the more I panic. I’m already starting to feel the effects of the drier air and I don’t like it. Every winter, I suffer from this incessant itching that occurs mainly on my upper thigh area. Since I’m not exactly sure what causes it, I’m forced to attribute it to the low humidity environment.
One of my strategies, this year is to fight against dry skin like my life depends on it. The other day, I happen to catch an IG live featuring Teyana Taylor. She revealed that her glowing skin was a result of her “good moisturizer.” Although I never determined the exact brand her holy grail moisturizer, I came up on some of Teyana’s other skin secrets that have already transformed my skin.
I’ve written countless articles about women who swear by coconut oil for healthy skin. The most recent featured Blac Chyna’s nightly routine. Coconut oil is amazing on its own but Teyana has found a way to make it even better!
The process is simple! All she does is combine coconut oil with the most amazing, skin loving ingredient in existence……vitamin E.
I’m talking about the pure stuff, without the added soybean oil or whatever.
If any of you have used pure vitamin E on your skin, you know how nourishing it feels. Imagine the wonderful outcome of combining the two. I had the pleasure of trying this mixture for myself. After my nightly shower, I applied the coco-E oil all over (focusing on my legs and feet). The next morning, I woke up to my softest skin of my entire life! No lotion could ever replicate this result….ever.
Teyana’s coconut/vitamin E blend may save my skin this winter.
*side note* I have to try this oil combination on my hair as well.
Let’s get back to the topic of her moisturizer that’s so nourishing that her natural glow was mistaken for highlighter. Although I can’t be sure the exact moisturizer Teyana used, we can still theorize.
Is it possible the Teyana uses a thin layer of her coconut/vitamin E oil on her face? Back in the day, I used to go to bed greasy using pure vitamin E. The compliments I received were never ending. I walked around with an effortless glow that lasted throughout most of the day.
Teyana could be using a moisturizer formulated specifically to leave the skin looking radiant. Don’t be afraid to experiment with adding a tiny bit of your favorite liquid illuminator (like NYX’s Born to Glow) to your moisturizer or foundation. #JazzmaTaughtUs
Perhaps she creates a hybrid of her favorite moisturizer and carrier oil combination. Adding a tiny bit of oil helps your moisturizer to “stick” and leaves your skin with a glow. You may have to play around with this depending on your skin type. Some oils (like vitamin E) are suitable for ultra-dry skin. For normal, oily skin, you may want to experiment with rosehip which is a much drier oil.
Bottom line, you can have glowing skin by enhancing your daily moisturizer. All you have to do is get a little creative.
