Using a natural/organic cleanser is advised. Natural cleansers are sold in drugstores and health food stores. Natural cleansers clean without stripping your skin of its natural protective acid layer. Cleansers with green tea, lactic acid and essential oils will aid and benefit your skin.
If your beautiful dark skinned complexion is to remain nourished at all times, it is important to avoid harsher soaps and cleansers that strips your skin of the fundamental oils. Be cautious not to use sodium laureth sulfate (foaming agent) and alcohol (irritate and dries the skin).

Because black skin is prone to bumps and roughness, exfoliating your skin is the next valuable step towards skin care. Skin bumps and roughness results from the build-up of dead skin cells. In case your skin is thin and dry, it is advised that you exfoliate once or twice a week. For the oily skin or combination skin types, exfoliating twice or three times a week is good. Always use a shower loofah or an exfoliation cream to make your skin smoother.
Using a mild exfoliate like jojoba wax beads in a cream base helps in the removal of dry skin layers and does not cause any damages to the skin. Be gentle in the exfoliation process. Don’t treat your skin like you’re scrubbing floors or pots.
