Kojic Acid Soap is a very effective product for lightening one’s skin. However, like with every healthcare product, prudence needs to be practiced when using Kojic Acid Soap. Below is a 6 step guide on how to use Kojic Acid Soap properly.
1. Use warm water to open the pores of your skin before applying Kojic Acid Soap
You can also use steam by either using a professional face steamer or by boiling water and letting the steam hit your face for 10-15 minutes. Make sure the steam is not too hot to avoid burning your face.
2. Proceed to wash your face with the Kojic Acid Soap
To ensure deep penetration of the soap, use the tips of your fingers and massage the product in a constant circular motion to cover both the face and neck. Make sure you also cover your neck with the soap to prevent a two-toned appearance.
3. Kojic Acid can be irritating on ones skin, so use it in moderation to begin with
Start slowly, perhaps only using 1-2 times a week. Once your skin has adjusted to it’s strength, then begin increasing the frequency of use. We advise never using the soap more than twice a day.
4. Use cold water to rinse your face
Cold water aids in closing the pores and therefore augments the absorption of the soap in your skin
5. Dry your face completely and use a water-based moisturizer
Kojic Acid soap has a tendency to dry the skin, so it’s important to moisturize frequently to prevent your skin form drying out.
6. Always wear sun cream
Kojic Acid soap makes the skin more sensitive to the sun because it changes the density of melanin in the body. As best practice, always apply a factor 30 or higher sun scream to your face and other exposed areas of your body.
