My skin is changing, BHM. It seriously is. Clap Last year, I began giving my skin the good stuff by adopting the oil cleansing method and had very positive results! My skin wasn't perfect, but it improved a hell of a lot!

About a month ago, I added REAL black soap to my regimen. My soap before that was the brand name Dudu Osun and that soap is actually fake black soap. It was alright. But real black soap has been kicking pimple ass like crazy! Pimples are so rare for me now and I'm glad about that. So at this point, I'm thinking, "My skin's looking freaking great, I don't see why I need to add anything." I don't actively look for things to put on my face, but the thought comes up sometimes, you know? LOL

Finally, just last week, I bought aloe vera gel for my hair (and to prepare to make whipped shea butter with aloe) and randomly began using it directly on my face after a shower. Sometimes I get lazy and let my face dry right after a hot shower.

Anyways, since putting pure aloe vera gel on my face for simply 1 week, I have noticed an immense change in my skin. My scars are getting lighter, my skin is glowing, the texture of my skin is seriously beginning to smooth out, and it's all gotten my confidence boosted. I've been wearing so much less powder/foundation on my face because of how great my skin looks. Hell, I think I'm looking good right out of bed!

Ladies, I'm in love. Please don't sleep on aloe vera gel. It's definitely a part of my skin regimen now!

Wash with black soap, apply aloe gel, let it dry, then apply castor oil mixed with olive oil! Simple! Big%20smile

Wait, I use Dudu Osun, that's not really black soap? Where do I get really black soap from? What does it look like?
Thanks

Aloe Vera is a miracle plant, I tell you. It's so good for so many things! I love it, too.

No, it's not authentic. Real African black Soap isn't black, but an Earthy-type brown. It looks like a hunk of dirt actually and it is very soft in texture. It has no real scent.

^ You can find the real soap in an African market, or you can order it from Coastal Scents.com Their ABS is from Ghana [I believe] and they have great deals on their products.
