Natural Black Skin Care. There are a lot of different ways to approach this subject. This is something that most of us didn't think about as Black Women, until quite recently. As we began to learn more about ingredients, we took a new approach to caring for our skin.
The word "Natural" implies that there are no toxins present. Instead of trying to read your minds, I asked some of you what this meant, when it comes to caring for your skin.
You told me that "Natural" was more about caring for your skin without using chemicals. Some of you spoke of Mother Nature as the source. Others of you referenced your Grand Mothers whipping up potions that took care of scrapes and burns.
More importantly, "Natural" meant that you could care for your skin without the side effects of products burning it or making an existing problem worse.
When it comes to natural Black skin care, what works for you might not work for someone else. It's also possible that works today might not work tomorrow.
You are all your own unique universe. As such, your world is spinning differently from those around you. Your skin will often tell your unique stories.
That's why it's important to find out what natural black skin care means to you specifically, when caring for your skin.
Black skin is different from other complexions in several ways. Your skin has more melanin than other ethnicities, which gives it a darker hues. The density of your outer and inner layers are different and is more resistant to sun damage. Yes, your melanin acts as a natural sun protector.
Ingredients are key. Finding a product that has been formulated with you in mind is crucial. Oftentimes, a face that's similar in complexion to yours appears on the label, yet the ingredients are not good for your skin. That's because the label changed not the ingredients.
If you watched your elders care for their skin, they kept things simple. Honey is a natural moisturizer. Combine wild oats and honey and now you have a moisturizer and gentle exfoliant.
Olive oil is also a natural moisturizer that contains antioxidants. It's been known to improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Essential oils are some of the most often used ingredients for skin and hair products. If you're challenged with acne, tea tree is often the go-to oil. For burns, lavender is often used to reduce scarring.
When it comes to natural black skin care, taking a wholistic approach is ideal. This means that you are caring for your skin not just on the surface, but also from within.
You are what you eat and drink. We spend a lot of time on the go. This causes eating habits to often change.
Change is good, especially if it's for the betterment of your skin and overall health. Drinking plenty of water, eating a balanced diet, and taking supplements are good places to start. Oftentimes, what we eat lacks the nutrients our skin needs to stay healthy. Supplements can often bridge the gap.
Drinking water helps to flush out toxins and keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Eating a balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables, lean protein and whole grains will help to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
Supplements like Vitamin C, Omega-3 fatty acids, and Biotin can also help to improve the appearance of your skin.
When it comes to natural black skin care, what works for you is unique. It's important to find out what that means specifically for you and your world. Many ingredients and approaches can work well for you.
Taking a wholistic approach is often the best way to go. This means caring for your skin not just on the surface, but also from within.
Eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and taking supplements are all good ways to care for your skin naturally.
Your melanin is a natural sun protector, yet it may not always ward off the sun's UV rays. So make sure to use sunscreen when needed.
Honey, olive oil, and essential oils are all great ingredients to use or look for in natural Black skin care products.
