How to Use Kojic Acid Soap on Body?
There are many ways to use kojic acid soap, I will explain all the details here:
I recommend using the kojic acid soap on the body during the shower. If you are just starting to use this Kojic soap, go slow. It will take sometime before you notice any major improvement in skin tone, this does not mean to use it repeatedly during the day.
Gently rub the soap on the desired skin locations, you can apply it on dark elbows, hips, inner thighs and anywhere on the body. Kojic acid is recommended for full body skin whitening, just follow these directions and you are good to use.
Application of the kojic acid soap should be as per the directions that come along with the soap and we will also cover all the directions here. Kojic soap is also known as Bikini soap, as it improves your skin, you will notice less dark spots in the bikini area also.
It is recommended that you use kojic acid soap daily for a couple of minutes, wash your whole body with the soap. Gently massage for 2 to 3 minutes. This will exfoliate your skin and dead skin cells will shed from the skin. This will boost the generation of new skin cells. You must use a moisturizing lotion or cream immediately after using kojic acid soap.
In case, you are using kojic acid soap on your face, go slower. You will have to be more careful about allergic reactions. Even if you have a negative sensitivity test, still you should be careful while using soap on your face. Start with 15 seconds to 30 seconds on the first day, gradually increase it to 3 to 4 minutes daily. This slow progression will ensure your skin health and prevent any allergic reactions.
While washing your face with kojic acid soap, avoid it from getting it into your eyes, mouth or nose. Kojic acid is made to work on the external skin, this may cause an allergic reaction in eyes or mouth.
Often people are looking for overnight results, it will take some time for kojic acid to work on your skin. If kojic acid suits your skin, you will notice better skin within a couple of weeks. You may notice skin peeling during the use of kojic acid soap and during this time, protect your skin from sun rays.
You can even use kojic acid soap in combination with vitamins, this will help boost the effects of kojic acid soap. Using kojic acid with Vitamin E is more beneficial, now there are many brands that are manufacturing these combinations.
Kojic acid also works as an anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial agent, this multi-tasking soap will always amaze you with its benefits.
Use warm water to wet your skin before applying the soap. Warm water will help your skin pores to open so that kojic acid soap can work more efficiently. You can even use steam to open block skin pores, with in 10 to 15 minutes, you can apply soap directly on your skin.
Once you have achieved your desired skin tone, do not immediately stop using Kojic soap. We recommend using it less often after you achieve skin whitening. Once you are done the washing with kojic acid, use cold water to wash away the soap. Once you rinse with cold water, it will help shrink the pores.
Now that I have explained in detail, how to use kojic acid soap on body, let me explain its side effects.
First thing is not to fall for any brand, always get full details about the product before using it. You may feel irritation or redness on your skin in the first few days. If this itching does not go away, you must not use the soap.
Your skin will be more sensitive to sunrays and you may get sunburn fast. Avoid staying in sunny outdoors and always protect your skin with a sunscreen lotion. If you have to stay out fo long hours, apply the sunblock again after a couple of hours.
Kojic acid soap may lead to skin conditions like contact dermatitis in some people. This may lead to rash and blisters if your skin is sensitive to kojic acid soap.
