Body Care💁🏻✨

You have probably realized that my blog has only addressed facial skin care. It can’t always be that way! I also take care of my body, I want my skin to look healthy and radiant💫

Cleanse:
•In the shower, I use a homemade shower gel. Some of the ingredients are coconut, almond, and soy oil and shea butter. I always try to use shower gels that are not fragranced. Unless I’m going out and wanna smell delicious👅

Exfoliation:
•This is my favorite part. I do this once a week or when I’m going on a date😌 I also use a homemade product for this step. I’m recently on my second body scrub. It’s a coffee scrub☕️ with the same ingredients as before except for shea butter, I add Vitamin E.

*NOTE: I apply the gel and the scrub on my body and massage it with the EcoTools shower brush*

And now for my favorite part. Moisturizing😍

For the day🌞

•I first moisturize with a body lotion. Right now I’m using the Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer☘️ I love this lotion because it is so lightweight. It won’t leave a greasy residue on my skin. It’s also very soothing and it smells great. (I got it at TJ Max, they had other ones with difference light scents)

•Now for the sun care. Because I’m going out I use a sunscreen that has 30spf (if I were going to the beach I’d use one that has a higher spf than that) This will protect my skin from the harmful sun rays. I also noticed that when I started using this, my skin looks so glowy and tannish…I love it. (Quick disclaimer, I live in the Caribbean where I get more sun exposure than most people)

Night🌚

•After I shower, I quickly put on the baby oil gel shown above. I only use it when I go to bed because it is very heavy and will leave a very oily residue behind. But, when blended with the Hempz lotion, it will feel less oily and more absorbed into the skin💧

And that’s pretty much it💕

The start of a new school year is a chance to start with a new slate and to improve yourself. Here are 5 quick and easy steps to becoming a better you!

  1. Wash every day. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the morning, after lunch, before bed. You can put your hair in a shower cap if your hair is still clean. If you haven’t washed yet today, go and take a refreshing shower. Feeling clean will make you feel happier and help you concentrate more on your work and less on greasy roots.
  2. Drink a large glass of water every morning before you do anything else. Water will really help you wake up + it’s super healthy!
  3. Dress for comfort AND confidence! I know how easy it is to shove your legs into some yoga pants and to put on an over sized sweater in the morning, but the key to feeling good about yourself is to dress for confidence. Put comfy underwear on, wear a pair of jeans that really fit you well and put on a pretty blouse or a top in your favourite colour.
  4. Be as nice as possible to everyone, including yourself. I have found that complimenting people and seeing how happy they are afterwards really makes me feel a whole lot better than just thinking about how good that top suits her eyes. Go for it! Compliment yourself once a day and you’ll feel yourself gain confidence. Being a nice person is harder than being a mean person, but it’s so worth it guys.
  5. Exercise, meet up with friends, colour in a picture, … Lots of studies have proven that exercise releases endorphins as well as being incredibly good for your body. Go for a run a few times a week and you’ll notice how good you feel after a few weeks! Meet up with some friends you haven’t seen for a while. Go grab a coffee and catch up or go and do something fun together! Colouring in pictures is a personal favourite of mine, and yes, I am aware of how childish that sounds. There are tons of adult colouring books out there nowadays that are more challenging than the kiddie ones. It calms you down much like how yoga does but just without the mat and breathing exercises.  
Sammi’s Space’s Guide to MTF Shaving

Hello lovelies! In an attempt to be a bit more active I decided to come up with a short little guide for everyone. This is one of my biggest struggles both with dysphoria and with maintaining how I look. Body and facial hair differs in how it fades for HRT recipients, and it’s often removed by laser hair removal, but clearly most people can’t afford that.

So! Here are a few rules.

1.) Always shave with a clean razor, and some sort of cream.

Never use a rusty razor or do it without some sort of cream or soap. That is how you increase the risk of cutting yourself, snagging the skin, or in general giving yourself awful razor bumps.

2.) Always shave with the grain.

Well. Not really. It is alright to shave against the grain in non-fatty areas, however as a rule you should always -finish- shaving by going with the grain. You want to shave fatty areas as follows: Once with the grain, once against it, once with it. This should help prevent ingrown hairs.

3.) Gently scrub your skin in small circles between shaves.

Ingrown hairs are nasty, and as are razor bumps. Using a body wash scrub or a facial scrub will help to prevent your ingrown hairs and will, in general, help prevent them from forming and will also improve the overall health of your skin. This should be done anyways, but it’s especially important here.

4.) Be careful when using creams like Nair.

Nair drastically increases the sensitivity of your skin when its used. If you do use Nair, be sure to follow the instructions to maintain proper care for your skin, else it can lead to uncomfortable and unsightly rashes.

5.) Use baby oil or baby lotion frequently.

This stuff is a godsend. It makes your skin smooth and soft and can be, and I’ve found it really helps to deal with pesky razor bumps or dry skin.

6.) Be safe, and be reasonable!

You don’t have to shave every day. You don’t have to shave anything you don’t want to or don’t feel safe shaving. Just remember that body hair doesn’t define you or how beautiful you are. -You- define that. <3
