*Naija Actresses and Skin*

Ok, are their skin that glowy and smooth in person or does the camera enhance them?
Esp. Rita D. her skin is so smoove and spotless, can someone recommend their remedy to me?

And even their makeups are noice.

(some of them ofcourse)

Ma sis, sometimes the camera plays tricks on us o. But i can say a few of the famous faces are naturally smooth, take stella D-A, sola sobowale, rita etc.

And also, as most of them get the chance to come to yankee & London, they can take their cash to come buy their make-up here too. Since dem no fit go balogun market in lagos cos of fear of buying fake product. :)

you're right simi , most of them get to travel and hey get whatever makes them look like jade pickette or Halle B. Though some are just nauturally beautiful take Liz Benson and Stella, while some actresses are, but go way over board with the whole make up biz like sometimes Rita d. with dem heavy lipstick and Euriuah with dem scary wigs

I hear u o, ma sis. I mean what's with those useless & unnecessary wigs. Surely, if they can afford all those expensive make-ups, they can afford to get hairdressers on set to their hair proper for them now. There're countless of hairdressers in 9ja who do so many lovely & fantastic hairstyles now. Oh, i wish i was there now, so i can be changing my hairstyles every week. chei, how i miss lagos o. :cry :(

Just stick to a simple face moisturizer that doesn't contain too much perfume. Don't use too many creams at the same time.

As for me, i use Mary Kay's velocity cleanser & moisturizer. Ever since it's been recommended to me over 2 yrs now, i've been hooked on it.

as for me, i dont use anything on my face cos its too sensitive, oily stuff breaks out my face and ironically, my face is dry...

i really dunno what to use for it...i have a nice skin, but i wanna have that glowy look

It depends on the weather here in 'whiteman's land' again. Cos the weather plays a major factor on how our face looks. Like myself now, my face always look good in winter; fair and spotless; women sometimes even stop me on the street & ask what cream i dey use. But comes summer like dis, my face no go rest with 'oru'/prickly heat.

I believe their faces are "airbrushed" because of the effects of the camera and the picture quality. You may be surprised that their skin may not be as "glowy" when you see them in person when compared to seeing them on T.V.

get neutrogena facial moisturizing lotion but it's for people who have nice skin but just want to keep it moisturized, i've been using it for a long time and people tell me that i've got perfect skin, plus i haven't had a single zit in more than 5 years. Anyway, if ur problem is too bad then get some proactiv solution.

I think neutrogena will be better to Proactiv Solution. Neutro work well with all skin type but proactive causes skin irritation to most black skin( i mean our skins) and expensive too.
Dont get me wrong Proactiv do work with some skin.
