Going natural on everything is the new cool, isn’t it? Well, I think it is. It comes with this inner peace, knowing you’re slaying in everything…the natural way. Why go natural? Good question. The majority of store-bought, commercially produced goods are deadly, trust me. They are packed with preservatives, stabilizers, very weird fragrances (oh Lord!) and they end up destroying your skin and health. Period.
Here are a list of natural products you can use for the skin. Black Girl Magic!
- Coconut oil
- Shea Butter
3. Castor Oil
4. Raw Honey
5. Amond Oil
5. Argan Oil
6. Aloe Vera
7. Jojoba Oil
8. Sea Salt
Now, here are some skin issues and how you can treat them effectively using natural products
Honey is a natural antibacterial product and it works on the face like magic. Take half a tea spoon of raw honey, warm between palms and spread on the face evenly, leave it on for 10 minutes then wash your face. Pat it with a clean towel and watch your acne disappear over a period of time.
Make your own facial scrub by mixing two tablespoons of sea salt and four tablespoons raw honey then apply evenly unto clear skin and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wash your face and dry it up with a clean towel. You don’t need some expensive and weird-named scrub which will in turn give you break-outs. You don’t need that girl, you don’t.
Mix coconut oil with a carrier oil like jojoba oil and massage into troubled skin. As time goes on it smoothens the skin and gives it a clear touch. This mixture can also be used on hair to boost growth.
Use about a teaspoon of castor oil, and a quarter cup of coconut oil and almond oil and apply it on your face. Let it stay for about 15 minutes and wash your face with warm water to carry away impurities.
This is my favorite! Mix a cup full of shea butter and coconut oil preferably in its liquid state so it mixes evenly. Place it in the fridge and allow it to cool for some few minutes as it turns cakey and boom! Black girl magic. No more breakouts, no more dry skin, and definitely bleaching is a no no!
Try these and thank me later. *wink wink*
