How To Use Dudu Osun Black Soap On Face
There are ways to use Dudu Osun Black Soap to prevent it from drying out skin and to give you the desired result you need.
Wash Your Face Last
If you only use it on your face and not on your body, always make sure to wash your face last. This will help reduce the time between wash and getting to a moisturizer. After use, gently rinse your face, make sure all soap residue is off your face and body. Black Soap will leave the texture of your face feeling super clean to the touch.
Dab Your Face With Clean Towel
Once all residue is off, dab your face with a clean towel, make sure not to wipe off all the water. Keep your face damp because you will then use a good moisturizer to lock in some of the moisture from the excess water.
Apply Honey Mask
When you use black soap to wash your face, follow up with a honey mask. apply raw organic honey over a slightly damp face and allow it sit for about 15 minutes, then rinse it off.
Dab your face gently with a clean cloth while still making sure you do not wipe off all the water completely. The goal is to keep your face slightly damp before adding your moisturizer.
Apply Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E Oil is an awesome moisturizer. When you get the oil, the good stuff will be very thick and not thin or watery. It is quite heavy so a thin layer should do if you wish you apply it during the day. If you need that extra moisture, a thicker portion can be applied at night. This obviously means you would need to restrict the use of your Black Soap for bedtime purposes only. Vitamin E Oil may not be a good alternative for those with oily skin. If your skin is oily, a cream moisturizer may be the way to go. Remember, all cream moisturizers are not created the same, some are richer and thicker than others. The thicker the better for dry skin.
