Questions about Indian Soaps..

I was using Auromere Sandalwood-Turmeric twice a day. And using Green Tea shampoo on my hair. It's been almost two weeks and now my forehead is starting to get greasy. I use the Auromere in the morning and night but didn't notice any dry patches. Is the oil on my forehead making up for the dryness from the soap??

Also, I just bought a couple bars of Chandrika. Can I use Chandrika in the morning and afternoon and use my Auromere at night or will that be too drying as well? Or should I stick to 1 soap.. or use a different cleanser with the Auromere or Chandrika?? or what? The Auromere was doing pretty good for the first week (at least from what I noticed) but started breaking out on my forehead (it had cleared up when I first started.)

Re: Questions about Indian Soaps..

I used to be really interested in Indian soaps too, I purchased a pure bar of Sandalwood & Turmeric, but found that it wasn't doing much but made my skin more dry (and I already have dry skin to begin with.) I also bought a pure bar of neem soap from the same place but I found that it was making my skin look more uneven. So I stopped both. I've heard a lot of great things about these ingredients but I haven't actually heard of anyone's personal experiences using them.

I think you should probably stick to one soap at a time, that way you'll know which one is making your skin worse and which one's making it better. I used to use like 3 soaps at the same time (I love soaps..) but I was always confused at which ones were doing the damage and which ones weren't. So now I stick to one. Pure Papaya soap I got online, good for clearing red marks too, I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and so far it's been great. I only use natural ingredients on my skin.

Remember also, that if a soap happens to clear your skin the first week and then you break-out the next, it could be from something you ate and not necessarely from the soap itself. So next time you get another unsuspected break-out..try to think of anything different you ate & eliminate it from your diet if possible. Then see how your skin reacts.
