Simple Solutions to Treat Acne 

Dealing with ACNE? Here's a few things you can do!
1. Drink lots of water!
2. Avoid Stress when possible. (Acne flare ups can be caused from stress)
3. Ladies...Always be sure to remove your makeup before bed. Leftover makeup can clog pores and lead to unsightly breakouts that could be prevented with a simple nightly makeup remover. Use a natural makeup remover such as a bar of African Black Soap.
4. Men...When shaving or not, always be sure to cleanse with a wash that is enhanced with acne fighting oils such as our Intense Moisturizing Acne & Eczema Relief Formula. The hairs can curve under your skin follicles which clogs your pores and leads to unsightly bumps. Tea Tree oil is anti fungal and relieves the pain of ingrown hairs. Use it pure or as an ingredient in your facial moisturizers such as our "Real Man" Beard & Mustache oil.
5. Use cleansers that are suitable for your skin type (Normal, Dry, Oily, or Combination) Avoid cleansers that are harsh and laced with sulfates! Use soaps such our African Black Soap Bar, our Intense Moisturizing Acne & Eczema Relief formula, Organic Olive Soap, Neem, or other gentle cleansers.
6. Hormonal changes can also lead to breakouts. Try to avoid processed sugars during this time and try a fresh fruit or naturally derived sugar such as honey. (honey is also good to fight ACNE when used Raw as a part of a facial mask!)
7. If you have NORMAL OR DRY SKIN always be sure to cleanse with a natural cleanser but follow with a moisturizer such as our Revitalizing Skincare Oil that offers a light and moisturizing barrier that also absorbs into your skin and generates new healthier skin cells.
If you need a heavier moisturizer, then take a fingernail size of our raw Shea butter and rub into your skin. This natural Vitamin A, E, and D cream restores and heals skin and makes it soft and supple. A little goes a long way.
OILY or COMBO Skin needs special attention due to the oil production or not in certain areas on the face.
Start with a natural cleanser. In the dry areas moisturize with Shea butter or a light oil such as our Revitalizing Skincare oil which won't clog your pores. In the oily areas simply wash and don't apply the moisturizer. Your skin may not need the added moisture. If you do, simply apply a very small amount and rub in very well.
Be careful of using to much Coconut oil to moisturize with if you have oily skin. It can lead to a clogging of the pores which may lead to acne flare ups.

Hope this article helps you make a conscious choice about how to treat your precious skin. Our health equals our beauty and healthy skin is the great foundation for a more beautiful you!

Are you finding that your lotion is not working?

If this is the case for you, then you may need to consider switching to an oil based moisturizer. Lotions contain water and some oils but maybe not enough to keep your skin moisturized and soft for the whole day. Natural oils and butters not only protect the skin from normal everyday elements, but they also absorb into the skin and replenish and repair damaged skin and skin cells. This aids in a healthier skin texture. Many natural oils contain sizable amounts of skin loving vitamins and nutrients that heal your skin from the outside in. These oils and butters are free of skin irritants and chemicals that cause skin issues.

Consider using one of our popular body butters or natural butters (including Cocoa butter!) and oils to keep your skin moisturized for the whole day. Our popular Unrefined Shea butter is a natural skincare cream that can be used straight out of the jar for skin and hair. It is a multipurpose and treats and heals numerous skin issues such as dry skin, acne, eczema, sunburn, stretch marks, and sore and aching muscles. This versatile moisturizer is a natural way to replace your lotion and rid yourself of dry skin.

BENEFITS OF PEPPERMINT OIL FOR THE HAIR -Natural Solutions

 Get here $6.50 to $8.50 a bottle! A little goes a long way!
1. Use As a Moisturizer
Peppermint oil is a strong moisturizer.
Depending on your preferences, you can mix it with other oils such as Olive, Almond, Grapeseed, Jojoba, Avocado, or Castor oil.
In fact, it is recommended that you mix it with a carrier oil to avoid irritation and any unwanted side effects.
Apply such mixture directly to your hair and then wrap your head by using a shower cap. You also need to place a slightly hot towel on top of the cap.
Leave it for 20 to 30 minutes to allow the heat to penetrate inside. When you remove the towel and cap, the oil should already nourish and moisturize your hair completely.
2. Normalizes Scalp’s Oil Production
A surprising benefit of peppermint oil for hair is that it functions as astringent.
It is basically oil, but it helps to reduce excessive oil production by your scalp. Even better, it brings a tingling sensation and works by balancing the scalp’s pH level. Therefore, if you have a problem with either oily or dry scalp, peppermint oil can help you to get rid of it.
3. Can Promotes Hair Growth
The oil does not only work on the surface of your scalp, but it can actually penetrate inside and stimulate hair follicle.
It promotes hair growth by improving blood circulation, which finally increases oxygen supply.
With tremendous supply of oxygen, hair follicles and roots should grow at their full potential. If you desperately want to have long and healthy hair, peppermint oil can be such good solution for you.
4. Fights Dry Scalp and Dandruff
As mentioned earlier, peppermint oil handles either oily or dry scalp problems. In other words, it does not reduce or increase oil production, but it simply helps to restore it to normal condition.
The most common problem that follows dry scalp is dandruff. As the oil heals the dry condition, dandruff is as well gradually eliminated.
Itching sensation that also usually exists will no longer be a problem. Another good thing is that peppermint oil has a refreshing smell, so you do not need to use any fragrance.
5. Helps to Avoid Hair Loss
As peppermint oil stimulates blood circulation to the follicles, it promotes healthy hair growth.
The oxygen supply carried by blood will help to strengthen hair roots. Besides promoting hair growths, it also carries additional benefit by possibly preventing hair loss.
Blood does not only carry oxygen, but it delivers nutrients so your hair roots may absorb essential nourishment in order to stay healthy.
How to Use Peppermint Oil Directly to Your Scalp and Hair
Peppermint oil is a very strong essential oil. It is probably irritating for people with sensitive scalps. It is best to mix it with carrier oil to avoid burning sensation, but it can be applied directly to the scalp.

Exfoliate and Moisturize

Winter months can dry your skin out. The need to exfoliate is a must to get rid of those old dead skin cells and reveal the new smooth and fresh skin underneath. Exfoliation can happen twice a week. You don't have to scrub really hard just work the scrub in a circular motion. Rinse off and you will begin to notice your skin getting smoother and more soft. Try our Whipped Strawberry Cream or Vanilla Cream Cookie scrub made with rich Shea butter, brown sugar, avocado, sweet almond, and coconut oil and whipped to a creamy perfection as the perfect body scrub to get your skin ready for the Spring months ahead.

How to prevent and treat dry skin in Winter Months

It’s that time of year again! Although we love the holiday season, here at Health equal Beauty, many of us suffer from dry skin during the winter. Here are some tips to help your skin during the dry months.
Steps to Prevent Dry Skin

1. Increase your water intake. Drink at least 8 glasses (8 oz) of pure water a day to keep your body and skin properly hydrated. If you’re an athlete you need to drink even more water!
2. Add oils to your bath. Add a tablespoon of olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil to your bath water after you’ve soaked for about 5 minutes.
3. Protect your skin from the elements. Wind, sun, heat, cold, and dry airplane and office air can cause or worsen dry skin. Apply a moisturizer before exposing your skin to these conditions. (Try one of our body butters scented or unscented!)
4. Limit hot water contact. Avoid long, super-hot showers and bath. While a super-hot bath may feel great in these cold winter months, hot water dehydrate the skin. However, short, warm showers and baths are beneficial to dry skin.
5. Use humidifiers. They work very well in restoring humidity to your dry home or office. Add a drop of your favorite essential oil for an aromatherapy experience!
6. Use only gentle cleansers. Avoid cleansers such as deodorant soaps and harsh abrasives. Use a moisturizing soap or a gentle, grain-based cleanser.
How to Treat Dry Skin
1. Try a non-petroleum jelly product like our all natural Shea butter or Cocoa butter, or one of our body butters!
2. Perform these treatments up to 3 times per week:
Exfoliate: This should always be the first step toward healing dry skin. Dead skin cells can, over time, build up and become unresponsive to treatment. In order for moisturizer to do its job, you must first get rid of dead skin.
Moisturize: After exfoliation, you’re ready to moisturize. Apply your favorite moisturizer to your face and body. A good habit is to do this before bed and then slip into your favorite pajamas and go to bed. Your skin should be amazingly soft and smooth when you awake.
