like Cosmetic Surgery, Face-lifts, Dermabrasion to correct skin problems
has inherent limitations as Brown Skin scars easily and develops uneven
pigmentation after surgery or laser treatments. Hence these Western
procedures are not recommended for treatment of brown skin.
Alpha Hydorxy Acid from Natural sources are used for exfoliation and
for correcting uneven pigmentation and subduing over active oil glands.
Rules for Dry Brown Skin:
Use Olive Oil if you are not Acne prone.
• Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water.
• Use Coconut Oil as a sunblock.
Use oil based foundations, blusher and powders. Oil based hydrating
nourishing and moisturizing creams or cream-powder blushers because
they will make your skin look dewy; powder blushers will attenuate line
• Use a mild soap-free liquid cleanser or superfatted cleansing
bar to wash your face at night. In the morning just splash your face
with warm water.
Select moisturizer formulated with Natural Gels made from Aloe and /
or Cucumber which delay moisture loss, preventing further dryness
Apply a Natural Moisturizer Gel when your face and body are still damp
so that you "lock in" the moisture.
Use oil-based foundations and creams or cream-powder blushers - the
oil they contain will help soften fine lines and wrinkles.
• Ever wash your face with harsh soap.
Use grainy cleansing products or buffing pads
Forget to apply sunscreen to your face, neck and chest every day.
Use moisturizer with chemicals like glycerin, hyaluronic acid or dimethicone
Rules for Oily Brown Skin:
• Cleanse your face twice a day - in the morning and before bed
- with a mild liquid cleanser formulated for oily skin.
Use astringents no more than once a day. Better yet, don't use them
Choose an oil-free or oil-in-water moisturizer if you feel you need
to use a moisturizer
Use oil-free or oil-blotting foundation and powder and powder blusher
to stop oily shine and head off breakouts
Use an oil free sunscreen every day.
• Over scrub you skin. Oil is your skin's protective barrier
Cleanse your face more than twice a day - but you may cleanse once more
if you work out
Develop an astringent addiction
Use moisturizer if you don't need it
• Keep slapping
on powder to mop up oil - your skin will look chalky
for Combination Skin:
• Choose cleansers formulated for combination skin; they're
gentle on dry areas, such as the cheeks, and tougher on oily cheeks,
nose, and chin.
• Apply Moisturizer made from a base of Aloe
Vera Gel only where you need it, but slathering it on your T-zone
may lead to breakouts
• Use water-based or oil-free foundations
• Use a different cleanser or moisturizer for different parts
of your face - it's a waste of time and money
to use a sunscreen every day. Use a product formulated without oil,
if you like.
