Hello people!!! you are all welcome back to my website.

Well today I would be showing you all how this ‘mysterious black soap’ could improve your skin beauty when mixed with other ingredients.
Below are the ingredients which would be added to the black soap.
As earlier stated in my previous article sulphur has several potential uses for skin health. Dermatologists sometimes recommend topical sulphur ointments for treating acne, seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, eczema and dandruff. You might also use sulphur topically to help treat warts, pityriasis versicolor or skin discoloration, hair-follicle infections and shingles. Sulphur works on skin by cleansing the skin of bacteria and germs which tend to clog the skin.
Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention. It is also full of antioxidants which is great for slowing down aging, It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow on the skin. Honey is said to lighten skin, its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds help to decrease the appearances of scars and increase healing and tissue regeneration. The hydrating properties of honey and coconut oil or olive oil will also help revive skin cells, while regular, gentle massaging will increase circulation to aid skin recovery and cell turnover.
Coconut oil is used in many natural beauty products, and for good reason; It’s naturally antibacterial and antifungal which makes coconut oil an excellent skin moisturizers to smoothen dry hands, face and skin it can penetrate hair better than other oils. Coconut oil is also used as a shaving cream, it is inexpensive and natural. It is also a great deodorant lasting you the entire day.
Almond oil can be used to gently dislodge debris from deep within skin pores and follicles, and also may help prevent future acne because of its vitamin A content. You can even create a natural facial scrub using fine sugar mixed with sweet almond oil, safe for even those with sensitive skin. It contains fatty acids, vitamin E, potassium, proteins, zinc, and a number of other vitamins and minerals which improves the skin’s beauty.
Rice powder is gotten from blended rice. It’s natural anti ageing and oil-absorbing properties makes them good for oily or acne-prone and dull mature skin.
