First you must find out what type of skin you have dry or oily in order to create the right type of skin care treatment.

The best way to know what kind of skin you have is just by observing the way your skin behaves.

Types of Skins

If your skin is oily, well, you have oily skin. If you have a tendency to have dry skin particularly in the winter, then clearly you have dry skin. The more complicated issue is for those who have a little bit of both.

In terms of trying to even out oily versus dry skin, a couple of things particularly for those who live in the cooler parts of the country in the wintertime, drier skin is going to be more of a problem. And the reason for that is if you work in an office or you’re in a home, there’s a lot of forced hot air and that lowers the humidity to desert-like levels. So the best things to do in those environments are to moisturize your skin. And generally speaking when you have dry skin, you want to use moisturizers. And on the face, creams are great for doing that.

When you have oily skin, if you’re going to use anything on your face whether it be a medication or any other topical application, you may want to use a gel because gels tend to dry the skin more.

And if you have combination skin, it’s just going to be a matter of trial and error unfortunately — and that gets a little bit more complicated. But again, self-assessment, trial and error, and you should do very well.

Face and body moisturizers

A few great natural moisturizers for the face body and hair are Coconut oil. A good moisturizer reduces the appearance of wrinkles and maintains your youthful look. Coconut oil has been nature’s best-kept secret for beautiful, healthy skin. The rich, creamy oil is easily absorbed into the skin and into the cell structure of the connective tissues, helping to limit excessive damage caused by sun exposure. In some cases, it may even help to restore damaged skin.  Another great use for coconut oil is on the feet it goes a long way in the up keep and preservation of the skin, so you don’t have ashy and Chapped heels.  A link to find out more about Coconut oil

Shea Butter and Shea Oil newer skin moisturizer moving to the skin care products forefront, even creeping into several highly branded skin care companies’ products, such as Oil of Olay. Shea is a very unique skin emollient and moisturizer. Because Shea is a highly moisturizing, anti-inflammatory agent, Shea has become an effective treatment for a number of skin maladies, including scars, eczema, wounds, burns, rashes, acne, dry skin, dark spots, skin discolorations, wrinkles, and most importantly, stretch marks. Because of its unique ability to reduce and heal scars, it is no wonder that Shea has recently surged to the top of stretch mark reducing treatments. Shea is wonderful oil that absorbs easily into the skin and will not leave the body or face feeling greasy. So how can you use Shea to fade your stretch marks? Simply follow the tips below.

How to Reduce Stretch Marks – Step #1: Infuse Your Skin and Body Tissues With Shea to Reduce Your Stretch Marks.

Although Shea’s use in America is relegated to cosmetics, Shea oil and butter is used in Africa as a seasoning and cooking oil. If you can find Shea Oil, incorporate it into your diet. It will not only infuse your body and skin tissues with additional stretch mark and scarring protection, but also will also serve as a healthy alternative to the cooking oils and lard we primarily use in America. You can find Shea Oil in your local Afro-Caribbean Grocer. If there is not one in your local city, find an online organic store, such as Vitamin Shoppe or Herbal Remedies and purchase it from there. Although it will cost you a bit, a sprinkle of Shea Oil on your daily sautéed veggies or salad will give you help for stretch marks and give your skin an incredible boost.

Mongongo Oil

(Also known as manketti oil)

The bright yellow oil pressed from the seeds of the mongongo tree contains high levels of vitamin E (tocopherol), linoleic and eleostearic acids, making it very useful oil for skin protection. It is effective not only for hydrating the skin but also for restructuring and regenerating the epidermis.

The eleostearic acid reacts rapidly with UV light, producing polymerization and providing a protective layer. The high vitamin E content also provides the oil with excellent stability, which is proven in the heat of Southern Africa where the oil does not become rancid.

Marula Oil

Marula oil is a popular ingredient for skincare products because it naturally softens, nourishes and revitalizes the skin. It is easily absorbed and contains high proportions of oleic acid and linoleic fatty acid, making it ideal for topical application. It is high in natural antioxidants and one of the most stable oils available, being ten times more resistant to oxidation than olive oil.

Marula oil has also been shown to improve skin hydration and skin smoothness, and to reduce redness. In studies it performed better than sweet almond oil for each of these properties.

Facial cleaner

At night before you go to bed cut a Lemon in half and rub it on your face. Sometime the lemon can be to strong for some skin types and cause the skin to break out so you can add honey to it to cut the acid then apply to the face. Leave on your face for 15 mins.  A milder solution is Raw African Black Soap from Ghana is a better but more expensive solution.  This soap contains no scents, preservatives OR chemicals. Active ingredients include virgin palm kernel oil, and potash from the ashes of plantain leaves. Plantain is a rich source of vitamins A & E and iron. (Plantains are a member of the banana family).

For centuries, Ghanaians have used Black Soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. It is known to help with skin irritations and conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis as well. African Black soap has also been used to achieve beautiful skin.
