A friend of mine recommended I try African Black Soap.
I mentioned to her a while ago that I was going to try quitting salicylic acid because I thought it might be causing my acne to flair up. You would not believe how many facial products are laced with that stuff!
After a visit to a dermatologist resulted in a long lasting case of thrush, I decided to do what I could do to fix the problem the natural way.
I quit using my moisturizer and switched to Coconut Oil about a month ago. I also use the coconut oil in my kitchen, which is kind of unique. It's remarkably delicious on eggplant. I have been using a few liquid face soaps from Whole Foods for about a month or two. They are good, but a little drying.
Let's talk about African Black soap. Here is a picture of the one I am trying:
I am actually kind of disappointed that its not from Africa. I guess thats why it wasn't super expensive.
When you open it up, it looks like a piece of cake. A really hard, waxy piece of cake.
Will give it a try for a while and see what happens. After a few uses, I think I could still use an added moisturizer after the soap. We'll see how the skin fares in about a month.
