A Few Of Her Favourite Things: Bolanle Olukanni
When it comes to a girl and her beauty products, the term: to each her own, comes to mind. Over time, we experiment with different products until we find the ones that do the trick for us. Products that keep our complexion and skin in general, looking good no matter what. Granted genetics might come to play in some cases, but more often than not, we get support from one beauty product or another to help ‘maintain’ what our mama gave us. For this issue, we contacted TV host, Bolanle Olukanni to share her favourite beauty products, and let’s just say salicylic acid and shea butter are some of the ingredients that play major roles in getting her skin to look flawless.
For her face product, she uses something with salicylic acid in it. Salicylic acid is acne’s arch-enemy; it is also great for gently exfoliating the skin. No wonder Olukanni chose a product with it.
We cannot overemphasize the importance of sunscreen, even on a cloudy day, and she knows this.
Most people don’t pay attention to their lips, but not this gal. She understands that the lips should get just as much attention as other parts of the body so she keeps her lips moisturised with EOS lip balm.
Moisturising helps with radiant skin. Shea butter as a moisturiser has the benefits of deep moisturising and fighting signs of aging; so it comes as no surprise that she has chosen a product that contains shea butter for her moisturiser.
Oud is one of the most coveted fragrances in the world; its muskiness is intoxicating, and it lasts for hours, so naturally, she has chosen something with oud as her favourite fragrance.
