Yes it's true that Black Don't Crack! Have you looked at your Black Girlfriend's skin and wondered,
Yes I know I have some amazing and faithful readers who aren't Black Girls! This post is for you!
Well honestly a lot of the skin not aging is simply because we have good genes and we tend to have very oily skin and since we don't have dry skin, it ages slower. Also the natural melanin prevents the sun from having as harsh as an affect on skin with less melanin.
But this is stuff that you already know! You want to know the secrets about what we do in the steal of the night that gives us that 20 something glow when we are well into our 30's and 40's!
Here are my Black Girlfriends Beauty Secrets:
1. We do LESS to our skin. While we believe in beauty products, if you raid your Black Girlfriends beauty closet you might see a lot of products, but she probably only uses a cleanser and a simple moisturizer.
2. We prefer natural products that you can also use on your hair and sometimes in your food. It started for me in college. I didn't have that much money and I found that I could use Olive Oil in my food, in my hair and on my skin. From then I tried other Oils and kitchen beauty like Oatmeal scrubs and Coconut Oil everywhere!
3. We take milk baths and use milk sprays. Oh you didn't know about milk sprays? Let me school you. I get a quart of whole milk every two weeks, because I don't drink it. I pour 75% milk and 25% spring water in a small spray bottle. I spray my face with the water through the day. Girl it exfoliates like crazy! The cells turn over and boom good skin!
4. Your Black Girlfriends tend to wear less make-up, coverup and all that skin clogging stuff! While we love makeup you can oftentimes see your Black girlfriends not wearing any makeup at all. Just some lip gloss and maybe a little mascara. A lot (not all) of us save a full face of makeup for special occasions only.
I hope that this whisper of 4 Black Girlfriends beauty secrets helps you to upgrade your own beauty regimen!
