Skin Care Tips: Olive Oil Soaps and More

Are you tired of your current skin care regiment? Ready to
unleash smooth, luminous skin? Here's a tip: Ditch the
chemicals! Chemical soaps, shampoos, lotions, and masks can
be irritating and ineffective, but natural skin care
products enhance your skin and hair through the power of
soothing elements like olive oil and luxurious French clay.

If you're ready to make the switch to natural skin care,
you'll be needing a few things. Let's go over three of the
basics.

Olive Oil Soaps

Organic soaps will leave your skin feeling smooth and soft
with a healthy glow. You'll also smell lovely, as many olive
oil soaps feature the perfect blend of natural fragrances
including mandarin, verbena, green tea, and lavender scents.
For truly high-quality soap, invest in bars made out of 100%
olive oil with French ingredients.

Besides for ingredients, production is also important, with
triple milled soap at the top of the list. Organic soaps
made in this fashion are crystalized and rolled — or
milled — three or more times under a stainless steel
roller. This turns the soap into a paste, which is then
pressed into molds to form triple milled soap. The result?
Organic soap that's both uniform and silky, and that will
last longer than alternative products because it is so
densely packed.

Shampoo & Conditioner

Like olive oil soap, shampoo and conditioner products made
with 100% olive oil provide a gentle, thorough clean. Even
sensitive or dry scalps can benefit from the all-natural
formula, designed to increase shine and improve health at
the roots. Plus, when you pair olive oil shampoo with olive
oil conditioner, the effects multiply! These products will
leave your hair looking and feeling good, and help you grow
longer hair by preventing breaks. And just like the soap,
organic shampoo and conditioner products feature light
fragrances to give your hair that little extra something.

Clay Face Mask Kits

Having smooth arms and legs is great and all, but the first
thing most people will notice about you is your face, which
is why a French clay mask can come in handy. Skin care clay
comes from all over the world — even from volcanos
— but the most popular clay is from France. Clay also
varies by color, as it is available green, yellow, red,
pink, and white. Each color clay offers different benefits.
For example, a green clay mask is a natural astringent ideal
for acne-prone or oily skin.

Best of all, clay face mask kits provide a true spa
experience for a fraction of the price! Your clay mask will
detoxify and hydrate your skin, thus providing long-term
benefits to your complexion more effective than many spa
facials. For best results, follow up your mask treatment
with an after-mask moisturizer. These masks are designed to
go with specific colors of clay and work to seal in
moisture, allowing you to enjoy the full benefits of your
clay face mask.
