Anyone have a brand of (authentic) African Black Soap that they love?
I've recently started using it (along with honey every few days ), but I'm thinking about stopping b/c it is drying my face out so bad--and I have oily skin. Does this ever stop happening or is it normal?
I'd really like to continue using the soap as I refuse to put any more nasty chemical concoctions on my skin. I think that is what has caused it's poor condition in the first place!
Jojoba "oil" is actually a wax, but looks like an oil. It is most known to be closest to your skin's natural oils in it's makeup. If you provide moisture to your skin, it will not rebel and overproduce oil...........which I learned the hard way, even growing up AND working in the beauty industry. I will say about the black soap, from what I remember, my face did go through an adjustment period after coming off of some salon cleanser. My skin did feel dry back then, but it was normal after a couple of weeks. I do remember "toning" w/ acv (w/ "mother") as well, which helped to get me through the adjustment. I don't think I was using any moisturizer to follow while going through the adjustment though. It's been too long to remember! Anyway, honey is soooooooo amazing! I use it on my hair and face, and as we speak, I've got white organic raw honey from Hawaii on my face as a mask, after washing w/ the recipe on here of oat flour, corn meal, and sea salt (morning routine is black soap or if I've worn makeup that day). I'm constantly playing w/ new routines of these natural things, and feel like doing something amazing for my skin every day!
