A look at Rosacea: Rosacea is a common but little-known disorder of the facial skin. Because of its red-faced, acne-like
effect, it is often untreated or treated with the wrong products. Currently there is no cure for rosacea, and the signs include
redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead, and small visible blood vessels in the face. Other symptoms are bumps or pimples
on the face and watery or irritated eyes.
Africa's Recommended Treatment:
Step #1 - Cleanse - You have to be very careful with the type of soap you use on your skin when you have rosacea. Stay
away from dyes and fragrances, and stick with an all-natural blend if possible. You also want something that won't be too
harsh on your sensitive skin. We suggest natural black soap. This soap is completely natural, and made with a blend of healing
ingredients found right in the heart of Africa. This soap will gently and effectively replenish your skin. Break off a small
piece and wet with water, rub between your hands and apply to your skin. Rinse.
Step #2 - Moisturize and Protect - Moisturization is so important for rosacea. Many people confuse rosacea as acne and
don't moisturize properly. We recommend using virgin coconut oil or Vitamin E oil. Virgin coconut oil is known to heal rosacea
sores, heals without a scab, and prevents itching. Vitamin E oil helps to give skin back its normal appearance, while moisturizing
Alternate remedies: Take your B vitamins! Many people who suffer from rosacea suffer from low amounts of Vitamin B. Vitamin
B also helps to reduce inflammation on the skin.

A look at eczema: Eczema is a group of skincare conditions which affects all age groups. The severity of the disease varies.
In mild forms the skin is dry, itchy and hot, whilst in more severe forms the skin can become broken, raw and bleeding. Eczema
is not contagious, although it is a very troubling disease for the person who has the condition. With treatment the effects
of eczema can be reduced, though skin will always be sensitive and need special care.
Africa's Recommended Treatment:
Step #1 - Cleanse. We suggest either Dudu-Osun Black Soap (M-S501) or Natural Black Soap (M-S500). Both of these soaps
are completely natural and contain natural herbs and honeys from the rain forest and Savannah regions of Africa. Dudu-Osun
contains a healing blend of honey, shea butter, aloe vera, lime and lemon juices to nourish the skin, moisturize, and alleviate
the itching and inflammation so common with eczema. Natural black soap contains a blend of plantain skins, palm kernel oil,
and natural sodium. Plantain skins are rich in Vitamin E which help to reduce the scarring and soothe eczema-prone skin.
Step #2 - Moisturize. People with eczema suffer from very dry, itchy skin. One of the best ways to alleviate symptoms
is by using an intense moisturizer. We recommend Shea butter, Jojoba oil, Shea Nut Oil, or Mango Butter. Each of these butters
or oils is completely natural, each contains natural vitamins that reduce the appearance of eczema, take away itchiness, and
moisturize from deep within the pores.
Step #3 - Condition. For those who have severe symptoms of Eczema, taking a little extra step towards healing can go a
long way. Below are several ways to treat your eczema that give you the relief you need:
Dead sea bath: Relax and kick back in a dead sea bath. Dead sea salts are famous for their healing mineral content. People
from across the globe travel to the dead sea to bathe in its healing waters. We recommend dissolving 1-2 cups of dead sea
salts in a warm bath. Soak for 20-30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. The healing minerals will penetrate the skin
and heal from the inside out.
The neem solution: Neem oil is a natural oil that is famous for its healing effects on eczema. Add 2-3 tablespoons of
neem oil to warm bath water, and soak for 20 minutes. You can add the neem oil to your dead sea bath for maximum results.
Neem contains a powerful analgesic and relief from itching and general soreness. Makes eczema more manageable and gives skin
a normal appearance. The effects become obvious normally within 4-7 days.
Other African Solutions: Virgin coconut oil (for moisture), black seed oil (for healing), tea tree oil (relieves itching
and rash), dead sea exfoliating gel (for cleansing).
Alternate remedies: Take 30 mg of zinc twice daily.
- Apply a paste made of nutmeg and water to the affected areas.
- Add chamomile, lavender, or geranium essential oil to your bath.

A look at psoriasis: Psoriasis is a non-contagious lifelong skin disease that has been diagnosed in 4.5 million adults
in the United States. It appears as raised, red patches or lesions covered with white buildup of dead skin cells, called scale.
There are different forms of psoriasis. In many cases, the scales are accompanied by blisters or red spots. People who suffer
from psoriasis often experience inflammation and itchiness.
Africa's Recommended Treatment:
Step #1 - Cleanse We suggest you choose from Dudu-Osun black soap, Zee black shea butter soap, or Oatmeal and Vitamin
E Soap. All three soaps are natural, and the first two are hand-made in Africa. Dudu-Osun contains healing tropical herbs
and honey which heal and protect skin. Zee black shea butter soap gives you intense miniaturization while natural vitamins
and aloe vera go deep in pores and provide nutrition. Oatmeal and Vitamin E soap is a great soothing alternative, natural
oatmeal soothes and conditions while shea butter moisturizes and vitamin E heals.
Step #2 - Moisturize In order to protect your skin, and to alleviate itching you need to provide a moisture barrier. There
are a wealth of items to choose from to moisturize, the best choices being Shea butter, cocoa butter, aloe butter, mango butter,
or jojoba oil. Shea butter gives intense moisture that lasts for days, cocoa butter is also a popular choice. Aloe butter
is a lighter moisturizer, but it will really soothe the itchiness and pain. Mango butter is also a lighter moisturizer than
the shea butter, but is better for people with more sensitive or oily skin. Jojoba oil is great for people who prefer the
oils, and is a thicker, more intensive moisturizer.
Step #3 - Condition After cleansing and moisturizing, it's good to take an extra step to protect your skin. Here are a
few options for you:
The neem solution: Neem oil is one of the best ways to treat psoriasis. It moisturizes and protects the skin, while it
helps to heal the lesions, scaling and irritation. Simply apply to all areas of irritation.
Take a dead sea bath: Relax and kick back in a dead sea bath. Dead sea salts are famous for their healing mineral content.
People from across the globe travel to the dead sea to bathe in its healing waters. We recommend dissolving 1-2 cups of dead
sea salts in a warm bath. Soak for 20-30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. The healing minerals will penetrate the
skin and heal from the inside out.
Tea tree healing: Add a few drops of tea tree oil to your daily lotion. Tea tree oil has natural antibacterial and antiseptic
qualities which help to keep your skin pure, clean, and soothed. Many people with psoriasis report skin improvement with daily
use of tea tree oil.
Alternate remedies: Add apple cider vinegar to your bath or apply topically for relief from psoriasis.
