The Secret to Black Skin Care
Can the Secret to Black Skin Care be something as simple as caring for your skin with natural products? Whether your skin is oily, dry, sensitive or normal, we all know that keeping your face clean is extremely important in skin care. Using natural black skin care products that are formulated especially for your skin, is even more important.
Our products address your skins specific texture and needs. While we might all have the same physical attributes as humans, African American skin is quite unique. A pimple not treated properly can become a keloid on your face. Picking a blackhead can leave a dark spot.
Having a basic skin care regimen and learning your skin type is extremely important to the type of skin care products you choose when caring for your beautiful skin. A "basic" skin care regimen will consist of 3 steps for daily use: cleansing, toning and moisturizing. For a weekly regimen you will add an exfoliant, mask and serum depending on your skin's condition and challenges.
I recommend a cream based cleanser. Although they don't create suds, something most of us associate with clean, they can be highly effective in doing their job. A Green Tea based cleanser comes to mind. Green tea is a known antioxidant that fights free radicals and keeps people guessing about your age when you use any product that contains them.
For hundreds of years, women in Asia have been using green tea as a beauty aid for their dark skin, helping them look years younger. And Yes, there are dark skinned women in Asia. They've used green tea because it fights sun damage and kills bacteria that destroys your skin.
If you insist on using other cleansers, know that to use a gel type cleanser on dry skin will dry your skin even more.
Toners restore the acid/alkali balance of the skin, because they are pH balanced. Toners also assist in removing the remaining dirt that might have been missed in your cleansing process. While this shouldn't be the case, a good toner will rise to the occasion.
I've added Rose essential oil to our toner, hence, Rosewater Toner is what you'll find at Nyraju Skin Care. Rose oil is a premiere essential oil and will nurture your skin giving it a sultry glow.
Vegan and organic based ingredients, that's what you'll find in the Antioxidant Face Cream, our premiere moisturizer. Vegan, no animal products or by-products, not even tested on animals, that's what we're all about. When you think of skin care for black skin, moisturizers are one of the most important products to use on your skin. Not only will they hydrate and add moisture to your skin but they remove that dull, ashy appearance on your skin that African American women have a tendency to get. Moisturizers combine both water and oil depending on your skin type and its use.
Some might say that oil and water don't mix but in the case of moisturizers for your skin, they can make a great combination. Moisturizers give a smooth finish to make-up. Putting on a light moisturizer will allow your make-up to be much easier to apply and reduce the risk of dragging your skin.
The exfoliation process removes dead skin cells that can give a dull, ashy and gray appearance to your skin tone. Our organic Jojoba Facial Scrub is a Cream formula that moisturizes and deep cleans your African American skin without clogging pores, leaving your face feeling fresh, clean and supple.
That's right it's like giving your face a second cleansing. It's the gentlest exfoliation your face will experience. The Jojoba Facial Scrub is mild enough to use as part of your daily regimen, yet best when used twice a week. This product is just the right thing for women of any color to add to her weekly regimen when it's time to remove dead skin cells.
Remember this is an exfoliant, so in a soft to the touch circular motion, start massaging your skin until you've covered your neck and face. Do this for about two minutes and with a warm cloth or facial sponge remove the scrub. If you insisted on being heavy handed, as some of you have shared with me, it will take several wipes with the warm cloth to remove the excess jojoba beads.
Natural black skin care products bring out the enhanced beauty of your skin, while rejuvenating your skin's texture and making your skin look younger. A basic facial kit will allow you to achieve your goal of getting beautiful skin
As a company that specializes in Natural Black Skin Care, Nyraju provides you with the How-to's of having great looking skin. Skin care for women of color hasn't always been top of the mind when it comes to beauty companies and African American Women.
We've had to use products that weren't formulated for our skin and this has often caused more damage to our already sensitive skin.
As Esthetician and founder of Nyraju Skin Care, I understand that, the Big Secret to Black Skin Care is using natural and organic products in your daily regimen for cleansing, toning, moisturizing and exfoliating your skin.
