Recently I wrote an article about the oils and creams that are popular but bad for dark skin.
This is because they cause a lot of acne and do not absorb into the skin. Read it here.
On the flip side, if you are looking for certain oils and lotions to make your dark skin glow, then try these;
1. Shea butter
Shea butter has a lot of fatty acids and vitamins that soften the skin. Using it on your face will tone your complexion and soothe your skin.
2. Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil will clear acne from your skin and in case you are experiencing any redness or swelling, it will soothe your skin.
3. Castor Oil
If you have problems with acne, then castor oil is so important for your skin. It has antibacterial properties that treat eczema and it is a good moisturizer because it hydrates your skin properly.
4. Hyaluronic acid
Since we know dark-skinned people should avoid alcohol-based products, a good ingredient to add to your lotions or cleanser is hyaluronic acid. It is also an excellent moisturizer because it helps retain water in the skin and prevent dryness.
5. Rosehip oil
For a person with dark skin, rosehip oil is essential. It gives your skin the glow it requires because it has Vitamin A and C in the right amount and that helps with wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots.
Vitamin C serum is also good for dark skin but always gets the best one for you, if it is turning yellow in the bottle then you might need to stay away from it.
