Black beautiful skin

Looking beautiful doesn't have to cost a fortune. Black women especially have beautiful skin that glows. Much of this is due to eating healthy foods that nourish the body, and the skin, from the inside out. But taking good care of your skin is just as important -- and it doesn't have to cost a lot of money.

Good products to use for your skin

The two most important steps to beautiful skin is cleansing and moisturizing. Here are 4 common household products that work great without busting the budget:
  1. Coconut or olive oil - both of these are good for cleaning your skin, without stripping it of its natural oils. Oils are important to keep the skin soft and moist. Natural oils like coconut or olive oil are kind to your delicate skin and won't clog your pores.
  2. Got milk? - yes, milk mixed with almond oil is an inexpensive and effective way to keep your skin hydrated. In fact, feel free to take a bath in it and refresh all of your skin.
  3. Cucumbers - they are not only healthy to eat, they are very effective in removing dark circles under the eyes and getting rid of acne. You can also make a paste of cucumbers mixed with a little natural oil and use it to remove makeup naturally.
  4. Yogurt - plain yogurt is a great moisturizer as well a makeup remover. It is kind to your delicate skin and can be easily applied with cotton balls. When you're done, mix some fruit with yogurt and enjoy a healthy snack.
