Q&A WITH DELSHAUN
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO PRACTICE SELF CARE, APART FROM SKINCARE?
My favorite way to practice self care is looking myself in the mirror and being my own hype man when I need it. I am an advocate for telling yourself positive affirmations. When I’m not hyping myself up in the mirror, I like to practice self care by going to the beach and going for walks until the sun sets aka golden hour.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE STEP OF YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE?
My favorite step of my skincare routine is the moisturizing step. I feel like using a moisturizer is an essential step for all skincare routines. When I’m glowing, it’s because I used a moisturizer. When I use a moisturizer, my skincare routine is at its peak.
HOW DO YOU CONTINUE LEARNING ABOUT NEW PRODUCTS OR INGREDIENTS?
With so many skincare products available, it can definitely be hard to keep up with all the releases. I like to keep up with products by following skincare brands on Instagram. I’ve also been following @MakeupForWOC on twitter for a while, and she always keeps me updated with new products in case I miss anything on Instagram.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR PEOPLE GETTING INTO SKINCARE?
The advice I’d give people who are getting into skincare is to simply focus on products that work for you! There are a lot of skincare products out there, but you should focus on products that target your specific skincare needs rather than what’s the latest trend. Skincare can actually be fun, so I’d advise to have fun with skincare and find the perfect routine that works for you.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR SKINCARE PRODUCTS?
I like choosing my skincare products based on my skincare needs. I typically choose products that will target the specific skin concerns I want to improve. I generally look for clean products that haven’t been tested on animals, which is one of the reasons I love Good Molecules because they never test on animals.
"I love using the instant cleansing balm to throughly clean my face. My skin always feels super soft after using the cleansing balm and it's ready for me to go in with the next step."
"I like using the Pineapple Exfoliating Powder 3x a week to buff away any dead skin. I love how the powder activates using water and leaves me with clearer skin. It's a gentle exfoliator that also helps brighten skin."
"I'm obsessed with the Good Molecules Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I use this serum daily. I love applying it after my toner. It really helps to lock in moisture and gives my skin the hydration needs."
"I love wearing the Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches for days when I have under-eye bags, but don't want to drink coffee that makes you crazy. The patches are super hydrated and always leave my under-eyes less dark than they were when I woke up."
"This is another Good Molecules product that I'm obsessed with. I love using the Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer. This priming moisturizer really helps to seal in my entire skincare routine. I notice that when I use this moisturizer, I have less smile lines and my skin is supple."
