Beauty Regimen: Girl Next Door - Ngozi Chukwu
1.What is the one must have fragrance a girl should have?
For an evening out it would be narciso rodriquez (for her)
During the day a floral fragrance like flower bomb by viktor and rolf is just perfect and lasts all day!
Nothing worse than perfumes that need constant touching up.
2.What do you use to help keep your skin healthy and soft?
Fragrance and soap free is the key.
I also realised that expensive doesn't always mean good.
Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel for combination skin as well as garnier skin naturals pure long lasting shine control moisturiser help reduce oily t-zones.
Wash with soap free gel- I use a gingko and cucumber one from rival de loop.
Twice a week I exfoliate with l'oreal expert skin renewer and cleanse using cliniques clarifying lotion from the 3step range.
The body shop tea tree oil is good against spots especially when applied overnight. Just a tiny drop does the trick.
Most important-lots of water! Simple, cheap and works wonders.
3.What are the essential hair products to keep your manes looking silky and fresh?
Goldwell kerasilk shampoo leaves my hair feeling soft even before conditioning.
Tresemme conditioner with vit E or herbal essences frizz buster conditioner are both good. Let this sit for about 20mins before combing with a wide tooth comb and washing out
Once a week I have a steam treatment using Africa's best hair mayonnaise
Castor and olive oil applied on scalp and hair tips keep manes looking healthy.
4.What is the one thing you do to relax after a long and stressful day?
Have some jasmine tea-i got these lovely jasmine pearls from a dim sum restaurant called ping pong. AMAZING.
5)What is your favorite make-up to use to have a popping and lasting effect? (foundation, eye-makeup, lip stuff etc.)
Most make up I use is by mac, bobbi brown and agnes b.
Girl about town lipstick is the most eye popping colour ever. Use the magenta lip liner though to avoid lipstick bleeding.
Bobbi browns long last gel eyeliner is easy to apply and comes in all fantastic colours.
I love the mascara by clinique-does separate and lengthen those lashes.
Touche eclat helps hide any blemishes or dark circles after a previous long night out.
