[Video] Ask Bernetta: What Type of Soap do You Use for Your Face?

black soap

Here’s another edition of Ask Bernetta! I will try to answer these questions in 60 seconds or less. Today’s question:

Bernetta, what type of facial soap or cleanser do you use on your face?

I like to use African Black Soap. I use Shea Moisture or Nubian Heritage. You can buy them at your local Target or Beauty Supply (or click above to order). It’s gentle and we can use it on our body as well. I can even wash my hair with it. I also let my children use it.

African soap is traditionally made by harvesting and sun-drying palm leaves, cocoa pods and the bark from shea and plantain trees. This material is then roasted in a kettle at a constant temperature and mixed with oils, such as coconut and palm oil. The soap then cures for two weeks before it’s ready to use. Source

Benefits of Black Soap:

  1. Protects Against Aging
  2. Improves Skin Tone
  3. Fades Skin Discolorations
  4. It’s an Effective Exfoliant
  5. Has Deep Cleansing Action

Ask Bernetta {Video} How do you manage life and exercise/healthy eating?

I often get asked, “How do you manage life (wife, mom, ft job, blogger and more) and fit in exercising?” I decided to make a quick response video. If you want a one sentence answer, I have to say that I make it apart of my life – not separate.

I don’t look at exercise and especially eating healthy as something I have to “fit in”. I look at it as something I must to do have the quality of life I desire. We have control over many things in our life and many health issues can be prevented if we treat our bodies right. One of my favorite phrases is, “Prevention is better than solution…”

Taking care of yourself on a consistent basis allows you to prevent a host of health issues. I have to eat to live and I have to exercise to maintain my body’s health as well. It’s simple for me.

My Fiancé Changed, Help! : W.I.F.E {Video Response}

Ask Bernetta!

I have been with my Fiancé for over a year now and in the last couple months things have gone bad….he’s always calling me fat and lazy even though all he does is sleep all day and I’m the one that works. I take care of him completely.  I do his laundry. I cook, I clean, I work, I take care of his military stuff and I do all his school work for college. He is waited on hand and foot. Yet he still is always comparing me to his ex-wife saying how much better she was then me. The sex is gone he says I’m to fat even though I’m 5 ft 3 and only weigh 163. Everything is always about him and it seems like he’s never happy anymore. After he got out of the military we moved where he wanted to…which is 2300 miles from anyone I know and all my family…I’ve tried everything to make him happy I even talked with his ex to see what was so good about her but at this point I’m at a loss of things I can do. I just get yelled at for everything. Any suggestions? Click continue reading below to view my response video.
