See Video on how I prepare the exfoliant/mask and toner

1. Cleanse skin with your normal facial wash. I use African Black Soap. Leave skin semi-damp.

2. Apply the exfoliant to your hands and in circular motions, gently massage the exfoliant into your skin for about 3 minutes avoiding eye area and concentrating on areas that need special attention. Leave the exfoliant on your skin for about 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and towel/paper towel dry.

3. With a cotton pad, apply a small amount of toner then swipe it onto your skin concentrating on areas that need special attention. Avoid eye area. Allow 2 minutes to dry.

4. Apply your usual moisturizer.

5. (Optional) Spot Treat with plain white toothpaste. (This works very good)

You will notice softer skin instantly and clearer/brighter skin within 2 weeks. Exfoliate twice a week. Toner may be used every night. Store in fridge. Expires in 14 days.

Other helpful additions:

Lemon: Helps with brightening complexion
Olive Oil: Helps with dry skin and will not clog pores
Tea Tree Oil: Helps preserve so product last longer

  7. I have been on this since my last post and I must say there is a huge improvement. All my acne has disappeared. I still have dark spot but those are fading too. I am using Palmers Skin success fade cream to help and it's working. This mixture you posted removed most of the bumps I had overnight. My skin looks more clear and the tone even looks better. I used to wear a lot of make up to cover the scars and my my skin look even but now all I use is a little bronzer very lightly and that's it. My skin looks great even with out it. I cant wait until the dark spots are completely gone! Thanks for this blog. It has be a esteem boost for me.

  11. I'm not sure how often u check this but I was wondering, since u only do these steps at night what regimen do u do in the morning? Do u just was face with water and the moisturizer or what?

    1. Sorry for the late response. I just use my normal cleanser and daily moisturizer. You can also exfoliate if you need to, but don't use the toner because the smell is terrible. Also, use a spf so your skin stays protected!
