DIY Black Soap
DIY black soap is one of the keyed into DIY beauty products in recent time. African black soap has gone from being viewed as traditional to be a skincare saviour. Black soap contains numerous ingredients that feed and nourish your skin and even out your skin tone. If you want to make your soap just for you, here is a DIY black soap recipe.
You will need black soap, olive oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil, turmeric, honey and any other essential oil you like. To get started, take out your black soap and separate it in a bowl, add a tablespoon each of your essential oils along with a tablespoon of turmeric powder. Add two tablespoons of honey and give it a good mix and voila.
The essential oils will moisturise, deeply cleanse and exfoliate your skin. Honey actively soothes the skin and is great for scars and blemishes. Turmeric gives your skin a lovely golden tone and in all, the antioxidant-rich ingredient will help you get rid of impurities in the skin.

Another DIY beauty product that will change your life is the DIY turmeric face mask. It is easy to make, very effective and it contains just two ingredients. These ingredients do everything you need for your skin. Turmeric is a public favourite for DIY beauty products, and it has been for a long time. The use of this truly golden treasure increases over time and its simply because it works magic.
Turmeric contains antioxidants to fight free radicals, it is anti-inflammatory, it soothes sunburns, evens out the skin tone and gives your skin an amazing tone. To make this DIY beauty product we call the turmeric face mask, you will need turmeric and milk or yoghurt. Milk and yoghurt provide lactic acid which is great for the skin. Lactic acid is great for treating hyperpigmentation, age spots and uneven skin tones, which to me, is awesome.
Start by adding a tablespoon of yoghurt and one teaspoon of turmeric powder. Give your ingredients a good stir till it is well combined and apply your mask with a makeup brush or applicator. Repeat the same process if you’re using milk. Condensed milk or powdered milk work best.
