Congratulations on your decision to proudly return to your original skin shade. This is a smart decision that shows maturity and confidence. These are two of the most attractive traits a person of any color can possess.
Bleaching your skin can be a damaging, intrusive process, particularly if you don’t use a product using more natural ingredients, such as this. Returning to your natural skin shade is just the opposite. You cannot regain your natural beauty instantly. It takes time, care and nurturing. You must take care of your skin and your entire body in a holistic way to bring out your very best and most attractive appearance.
Begin by nourishing your body well. Eat whole foods, drink plenty of pure, filtered water and take your vitamins. A good multivitamin with plenty of biotin and folic acid plus extra supplements of D3, E, A and an Omega 3 Fatty acid, such as flaxseed oil or fish oil will nourish your skin, hair and nails for overall good looks.
Be sure to get at least 20 minutes of light to moderate exercise every day. This will increase your blood circulation, oxygenate your blood and encourage perspiration. All of these functions help your skin slough off the damaged bleached cells on the surface and replace them with healthy, strong, new cells in your natural color.
Remember that rest and relaxation are the best healers. Your skin has been damaged by a chemical process, and it will need time, rest and good care to heal. Get your beauty sleep every night and practice stress reduction and stress management in your life. These practices will help you be attractive from the inside out and will impart the glow of health to your skin.
Limit or end your exposure to chemicals through cosmetic and personal care products. Use all natural products on your hair and skin according to your hair and skin type. If your hair and skin tend to be oily, use non-oily products such as baking soda and apple cider vinegar to cleanse your hair. (Look up the no-poo method for more information on this.) Use a mild, natural soap such as a shea butter soap to cleanse your skin and moisturize with aloe gel. If you have dry skin, you can add a drop of olive oil to your hair and facial treatments. If your skin is dry, you can cleanse and moisturize your face with olive oil, which is also an excellent all-over moisturizer.
Once a week, exfoliate with a natural product such as finely ground sea salt to further assist the sloughing off of damaged, bleached skin cells and encourage the growth of healthy, natural cells.
With patience, care and nurturing, you should begin to see your beautiful, natural, just-right color emerging within 6-8 weeks. Remember to continue to take good, natural care of your skin and your entire body to be the most attractive and healthy you possible.
