  • (Pleasant techno music)

  • (dinging bell)

  • - Let's get un-ready.

  • Okay, so my skin type is combination.

  • I have combination skin, sometimes it's dry,

  • sometimes it's oily.

  • I tend to get shine on my forehead, my nose,

  • and then during the summertime, my skin

  • is obviously a little bit more oily.

  • And then, during wintertime it tends to be very dry.

  • And I still live in Minnesota so,

  • winter is really long and cold.

  • I'm gonna wash my hands first.

  • And then we're gonna dive into the skin care.

  • So, we're gonna start with step number one.

  • This product is the Tatcha Pure One Step

  • Camellia Cleansing Oil.

  • What I'm doing is,

  • I'm gonna put a little bit

  • of the cleansing oil onto the rag

  • and basically remove my makeup.

  • Okay so, I'll be honest, I've been watching the videos

  • and one of my favorite is Serena's,

  • and so seeing that she used coconut oil to remove her makeup

  • and that she's been doing it for awhile,

  • really inspired me to start using cleansing oils more often

  • to remove makeup, opposed to just wipes,

  • or just going straight into washing.

  • Look at how much foundation and concealer

  • that it already removed, and it really feels gentle

  • on the skin.

  • And, Serena Williams recommended,

  • so do I have to say anymore?

  • Another thing that I learned is,

  • you have to be gentle when you're washing your face,

  • drying your face, you don't wanna go in

  • and ever rub too hard, 'cause you might damage your skin

  • and you have to treat it very gentle.

  • So, we're gonna move to step number two,

  • but as you can see, I left the oil on,

  • because this is actually a double whammy.

  • So, on one hand, you're using the oil

  • to kinda like grease your face, remove the makeup,

  • but you're leaving it on.

  • And, we're gonna go and use the Tatcha Rice Polish Classic,

  • and this is basically an exfoliant.

  • It comes in the form of a powder.

  • And I'm gonna put a little bit on my hands

  • and add water, and it's gonna create a foam.

  • This is like a little baby science project

  • because, poof, went in the powder

  • and then came out the foam.

  • And this, we're gonna apply all over my face

  • to basically get the foam working.

  • Whatever products you use on your face,

  • make sure you're giving that same love and nurture

  • to your neck, because the neck and the ears,

  • they also need attention.

  • For me, what works is exfoliating, maybe once,

  • twice a week, max, because a good cleanse is supposed

  • to clean your face, and then you're also removing makeup,

  • but you don't need to necessarily constantly be exfoliating

  • your skin, because it can actually make your skin really dry

  • and take away all the essential oils and your natural oils.

  • Too much of anything is bad,

  • and exfoliating is not an exception.

  • Another great skincare line is Dermalogica.

  • I'm obsessed with their moisturizers.

  • I'm obsessed with their cleansers.

  • So yeah, don't be afraid to just shop around.

  • And we all have different skincare needs

  • and you almost have to test different lines out

  • to see what is most compatible with your skin.

  • So, our next step is using the Tatcha Luminous Skin Mist.

  • The reason why I'm obsessed with this product is a,

  • I use it on the plane quite often.

  • You know, planes are very drying.

  • I tend to fly a lot, and this is just the easiest skincare

  • to use, because you're basically just spraying your face.

  • You could have makeup on, you could not have makeup on,

  • and you spray two or three times,

  • and you immediately feel your skin hydrated.

  • I feel like I have a nice glow to my skin after I use it.

  • And, it's just easy to use.

  • (lid clicking)

  • So, another really important key

  • is not forgetting to take care of your lips.

  • So, I really love this.

  • It's by BITE Cosmetics, and it's the Agave Lip Balm.

  • I think the lips are also a really important part

  • of the nighttime skincare routine.

  • Our next step is moisturizer.

  • And I love using the Tatcha Moisturizer.

  • First of all, it comes in the cutest little packaging and,

  • it's perfect for traveling, I throw it in my purse

  • and use it on the plane.

  • The transformation that my skin has gone through

  • ever since I started using Tatcha products six months ago

  • has just been really unbelievable.

  • So, the way I tend to apply my moisturizers

  • is I like to focus on the three points of my face.

  • My cheeks, okay, I said three, but we're gonna go for four.

  • You know, I wear the hijab, so today,

  • I can't obviously show you my full nighttime routine,

  • but I'm still going into my neck to show you

  • that it's still an important part of your face.

  • But, usually when I'm at home,

  • I will take whatever the product is that I'm putting

  • on my face, and I will actually go down all the way

  • to where my collar bone is, and make sure that my neck

  • is also getting the same products.

  • I go up to my ears and make sure

  • that I'm moisturizing them too.

  • That's a lot of products to be using,

  • but then, it really makes a difference

  • because then your skin is very uniform.

  • Another thing I really love doing is just taking this time,

  • when applying my moisturizer, whether it's in the morning,

  • whether it's at nighttime, to massage my skin.

  • It's a moment of reflection.

  • If it's nighttime, I tend to, when I'm doing my skin care,

  • I tend to think of, you know like,

  • reflecting on how my day went,

  • if it's morning time, I tend to take that time

  • to plan out my day.

  • So, skin care can be a spiritual thing as well.

  • It's a moment of reflection, but it's also a moment

  • to remind myself some of the most important mantras

  • I carry in my life, and that's basically two things.

  • It's always been, don't change yourself, change the game.

  • I love that quote because I apply it to my life,

  • I always have, and I think part of the reason

  • why I've had so much success in fashion

  • and being the first hijab-wearing model,

  • and going on to become a UNICEF ambassador

  • is because I remain true to myself and in doing that,

  • it's changed the game, and now it's opened doors

  • for so many women in my community,

  • to go out and pave the way, and make their own firsts.

  • It's just an incredible thing to keep in mind

  • as I'm starting my day, or if I'm going to bed.

  • The second thing is really simple sis,

  • it's basically don't sleep with makeup on.

  • So, honey is a really good anti-inflammatory skin protectant

  • and basically, I apply it to my face,

  • and every time I get a little bit of a break-out,

  • by using honey, my skin just basically goes back

  • to its natural state, and blemishes and pimples and acne,

  • they tend to go away naturally, simply by using honey.

  • Aloe vera, same thing, it's naturally hydrating.

  • Sometimes I'll cut up the Aloe vera,

  • cut it up into little pieces, stick it in the fridge,

  • take it out, and just massage my face,

  • and I notice a huge difference immediately.

  • And turmeric,

  • well, turmeric is African's best kept secret

  • because my momma, my grandma,

  • it's been a generational thing,

  • even since my family was back in Somalia,

  • because it naturally brightens the skin, it's very organic,

  • and you see a difference immediately in your skin.

  • But sometimes, if you go too crazy,

  • I've also had times where I would go to school

  • and people would be like, uh, are you a little yellow?

  • Do you have a little yellow tint to your skin?

  • So make sure that, when you use turmeric,

  • be very gentle with it, period.

  • So, our last and final step is the Dermalogica

  • Under-eye Multivitamin Power Firm.

  • Age-smart Dermalogica Under Eye Cream.

  • (lips smacking)

  • I just think the under-eye area is really important

  • to focus on, give it that same love and care and nurture.

  • And make sure that you're taking care of your under-eye.

  • So, that was my nighttime skincare routine.

  • Thank you so much for watching.
