Natural Soap Benefits and Summer Skincare Tips

Natural Soap Benefits

The benefits of soap made from natural ingredients are several, especially that they help in maintaining healthy and beautiful skin.

Organic soap made from coconut, olive oil or palm oil, is rich in vitamins and that helps people with sensitive skin and those who suffer from acne, eczema and other dry skin problems.

When you use commercial soaps, you may have found your skin feeling dry and stretched. With the natural ingredients in handmade, organic soap, you will find your skin feeling smooth, and fresh, without any itchy feeling.

Since handmade soap is made in small batches, its freshness remains intact, thereby benefiting us more than the usual bar of soap.

Our luxurious WILD ORCHID MILK SOAP has a moisturizing base of vegetable glycerin, milk proteins, and shea butter which produces a creamy non-drying lather.  Our ingredients also have high amounts of protein, fat, iron, Vitamin C, D, B and A. These beneficial nutrients will help replenish and pamper the skin gently.
Useful Summer Skincare Tips
  • Avoid going out in the sun as much as possible.
  • Cover your face and head with a wide-brimmed hat, cap or a thick scarf.
  • Use a good sunscreen whenever you go out. Ensure you reapply it every two or three hours.
  • Wear cool, loose, cotton clothes that let your skin breathe. Avoid synthetics and denims.
  • If you have oily skin, use water-based sunscreens or moisturisers.
  • Avoid using heavy cosmetics if your skin is prone to pigmentation.
  • Use aloe vera extract on your face to protect it from the sun.
  • Avoid using deodorants and perfumes directly on your skin. They react with the sunlight to cause pigmentation.
  • Take bath twice a day with sandalwood or neem-based soaps.
  • Drink plenty of liquids like water, fresh fruit juices, chilled buttermilk etc.
After the cold and chilly winter comes the warmth of the summer. This is the time when people come out of their houses to enjoy the warmth of the sun and welcome the outdoor activities. With the sun at its best and the temperature soaring up, people spend most of their time in the sun and rejoicing the true beauty of nature. But with the glowing tan comes the threat of skin damage. Too much sun exposure can cause skin cancer and other harmful skin diseases. So, it is necessary to take precautions when going out in the sun and enjoying outdoor summer activities.
