Proper Use of Oils on Black Skin
It’s important to use these oils correctly, especially when you’re using them on your face. If you place 2-3 drops of oil in the palm of your hand, your body temperature will warm the oil before you pat it onto your skin. This will ensure proper absorption. It will also minimize the amount of tugging and pulling you do to your face.
If you’re using oil for the first time on your face, it’s a good idea to do a patch test to ensure that you have no allergies. As for the rest of your body, natural oils make excellent moisturizers. When applied right out of the shower or bath, it allows your skin to absorb the oil and moisturize immediately. You do not want to apply so much that you look as though you’re ready for the oven. A little oil will go a long way.
