While there are a ton of beauty tips out there, finding beauty tips for black women are a little more difficult to find. Many people do not understand that our skin is different which means that it has different needs. Here I will list of 5 tricks to making your beautiful skin more radiant than ever.
There is nothing cocoa butter can’t do. It adds elasticity to your skin keeps you moisturized and fades scars and dark marks from your skin. One of the best reasons to use cocoa butter is that it even fades stretch marks over time. This is a product that works well for any race, but scarring can be an issue for black women. Since there is so much more melanin in our kin, it causes us to scar more easily and makes it that more difficult for scars to go away.
Wax instead of shave
When it comes to shaving sensitive areas like underarms and the bikini line, a razor is not our friend. It can leave behind hideous razor bumps and dark marks. With a little cocoa butter we can be rid of this, but to prevent these ugly scars you have to ditch the razor blades. Waxing is a great alternative to shaving. If you do not think you can bare the pain, using a depilatory is also a good choice.
Our skin is something that rejuvenates itself everyday by shedding. When we do not exfoliate, it can leave dead skin which ultimately leads to dark ugly patches and itching. To keep our youthful look, black women must be sure to exfoliate daily. This is a great way to even out your skin tone as well as keep dead skin at bay. A sugar scrub with an exfoliating loofah should do the trick.
Baking soda relieves dark underarms
Dark marks on under arms can be a big problem for black women because of lack of exfoliation, a buildup of dead skin, and an accumulation of sweat and oil. Altogether there are a lot of chemical reactions going on here and your skin is the one paying for it, One way to clear these dark marks is to rub baking soda under your pits. This clears up dark marks over time if used consistently.
Use a sensitive soap for your face
Black women have a tendency to age well. This is because of the amount of melanin in our skin; we can endure more sun without much serious damage. This does not mean however, that our skin is as tough as nails. Black women are more prone to having sensitive skin, which make it very difficult to find facial soaps that work without breaking out the skin. It is best to use a mild soap so as not to dry out the skin. I suggest Ambi complexion bar soap. It smells great and is great for your entire body, and it does not make your skin break out.
