#myMECCAskin: Flex Mami’s skincare routine for almost-perfect skin

SKIN, LET’S FACE IT, IS A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP. SOME DAYS IT’S GREAT—GLOWING AND CLEAR—AND SOME DAYS, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU CARE FOR IT, IT JUST WANTS TO PLAY YOU. WHEN IT COMES TO SKINCARE, EVERYONE HAS THEIR UNIQUE SOLUTIONS: THE INSTANT GRATIFIERS AND THE ONES THAT PLAY HARD TO GET (BUT TURN OUT TRULY WORTHY IN THE END). IN THIS SERIES, #MYMECCASKIN, WE TAP SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE BEAUTY GUYS AND GALS TO TAKE THEIR ALWAYS-FLAWLESS MAKEUP OFF AND REVEAL THEIR SKIN STORY AND THE PRODUCTS THEY USE TO MANAGE THIS CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED SKIN.

Lillian Ahenkan a.k.a Flex Mami and her skin have that kind of relationship you only see in movies: almost perfect. So, when it comes to her night-time routine, it’s all about keeping that good thing going on. The first and most important step is removing whatever fire makeup look she has on that day. This feat takes a triple-threat cleansing routine of micellar water for the “sticky stuff” (lips and eyes), followed by a balm cleanser for any residual makeup and then a hydrating cleanser that just smells nice. Treatment-wise, Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum helps reduce any texture and keeps her skin looking its flawless self while her FAVOURITE moisturiser Go-To Very Useful Face Cream makes it look like she’s wearing foundation—spoiler alert: she’s not. Press play!
