Rowi Singh’s skincare routine.
I struggle with my skin constantly. I feel like people don’t really see it because they’re used to seeing me all dressed up and with my makeup looking flawless on Instagram, but I have struggled in the past because I’ve got oily/combination skin.
In high school, I was fine but over the past couple of years in my early twenties, pimples started erupting all over my cheeks and forehead. It’s so crippling, especially when you work in the beauty sphere as a public figure and people are looking at your face all the time and you feel so self conscious. I’ve made an effort to have a really regimented skincare routine for myself that I know works. I also go to Infinity Skin Clinic, what really helped was the Deep Sea Skin Peel.
I start off, always, by removing my makeup with coconut oil because I feel like it’s really gentle on my skin. The key here is, it’s not just any coconut oil, it’s got to be non-comedogenic because there are some types of coconut oil that will clog your pores. It helps to lift the makeup off your face and it’s really moisturising as well.
I need something that’s going to work and is gentle because I’m removing my makeup every day, sometimes twice a day. Wipes don’t really cut it for me because I get a rash around my eyes when I use them and they’re not so great for the environment. A bit of coconut oil melted in with my fingertips does it for me.
