How To Use
- Authentic African black soap has a rough texture. Although the natural texture is ideal for removing dead skin during exfoliation, you'll want to smooth it out before using it as a regular cleanser.
- To do this, simply pull a small chunk of soap and rub it in between your hands. If you prefer a liquid cleanser, you can dissolve your piece of soap in water before use.
- You can apply the soap directly to your skin if you're looking for exfoliation, but be gentle! The rough texture is already an exfoliant in itself, so you don't have to scrub.
- With whatever method you choose, make sure that you thoroughly rinse the soap off with lukewarm water after use.
- Afterward, apply your favorite moisturizer to your damp skin. This will help lock in the soap's natural hydrating effects.
If you're new to raw black soap, consider using it once every couple of days to start. You can gradually increase your use as your skin gets used to the soap.
Natural black soap is also rough, so it can irritate or even break your skin if you're not careful. Stinging and burning are also possible. If you're using a raw block of soap, use gentle, circular motions as you glide it along your skin.
