Does Tend Skin Work for African Americans?

The best answer for skin care for African Americans is natural skin care solutions because of their skin's delicate nature. Skin care products that are based with cocoa butter, shea butter, sweet almond oil, avacado oil, and jojoba oils are best to keep the skin soothed and well moisturized. Secondary ingredients should include rose oil, jasmine oil, frankincense, sandalwood, and honey. For skin that is easily irritated, products that contain Aloe Vera and oatmeal are very soothing and do not dry the skin. Products with these ingredients are not only nourishing to the skin, but they also clean and moisturize without the harshness and drying action of chemicals. You should try to avoid products with alcohol as it is very drying and harsh to the skin. If you happen to have oily skin, try using witch hazel as a natural astringent that balances out the skin instead of drying it. It is also advisable to find natural cosmetics that do not contain talc as talc contains arsnic, which is obviously not good for you and since the skin is the body's largest is important to take care with what soaks into it.

A great all natural lip balm is honey. Simply take honey and spread a thin layer over your lips. This naturally hydrates and nourishes your lips.
