Hey guys, long time no see. Well, in Nigeria, harmattan is here, that means dry scalps, itchy and scaling skin and the whole annoyance that comes with the harsh dry weather. Oh for my non Nigerian reader (Oh yes, I got those) that means winter. So, anyways, with new weather comes the need for a little tweak on skincare, if not a whole change.
With the weather becoming dryer, you may need a more intense moisturizer and a milder exfoliator. Some lips scrubs and balms would be great also.
So how do you go about changing your skincare products effectively. There is only one rule.
Yep! You need to put time into serious consideration. Overhauling everything at once will overwhelm and confuse your skin. Instead of switching up everything at once. I recommend starting with one product, and giving your skin a few days or weeks to get comfortable with the change before throwing in another change. That way, you don't overwhelm your skin and you can tell the effect of the product and be sure that the switch is good for the health of your skin.
Anyway, a couple of days back, I was sent some products by puretropix.africa and I must admit, these products could not have come at a better time, just when I needed to switch some things in my skincare. And they are perfect for the season too!
My package contained
- A gentle face mask
- A face moisturizer and
- An intense body butter.

Anyways, in Light of all this, I will be following the rule above, and gradually switching up some of my existing skincare products for the new puretropix I just got. After a few weeks of good use, I will be back to let you guys know my thoughts on the effect of these products. Until then...
