Skin Care| This Model Uses Food to Wash Her Face

in beauty, skin care

Model Dominique Stroman was spotted on the streets NYC by photographer Raydene Salinas and she snagged these deets about her skin care regimen.

Once a week, I mix honey and sugar together and make a face scrub. I’ll gently work the blend in a circular motion to remove dead skin and create a softer, smoother texture. [Using actual fruit I] apply lemon juice, not from concentrate, to a cotton ball to remove any excess dirt, oil or makeup left behind after cleansing and exfoliating. It absorbs oils, but also gives my skin clarity.

How Each Food Works

  • Honey: possesses healing, anti-bacterial properties
  • Sugar:  gently exfoliates the skin
  • Lemon Juice: works as an astringent, killing acne causing bacteria

Have you ever used foods in your skincare regimen?

I use baking soda and honey to wash my face every day. I know some other people that use lemon juice and brown sugar. Using food is so much easier and cheaper for me, and does basically the same thing as a store bought cleanser.

Her skin looks gorgeous!

I use , I know its cheap but it works, a coco butter stick, just a pure coco butter stick. I wash my face at night, put that on and go to sleep. in the morning wash it off and my skin is good to go.

I’ve been to quite a few shows in the DC area and can say that this model has the most FLAWLESS skin without make up. It is very rare that you find a model (or just person in general) who’s skin is literally PERFECT! She has the sweetest personality and is beautiful inside and out.
