Organic Body Products for the Best Shower

  1. Soap

The most important component of a shower is the soap. Who can think of a good bath without soap being a part of it! Though soaps and shampoos can dry out the skin if used frequently, they are necessities for cleaning our body and hair which only water cannot do.

But, chemically laden soaps are harmful for the skin, and the chemical ingredients lead to various skin-related problems. Many of them do not contain glycerin and hence dry the skin; glycerinis an important ingredient because it attracts moisture to skin and maintains water balance. Organic soaps on the other hand contain glycerin which keeps the skin soft and are manufactured without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. So use organic body products for the best bath.

Organic soaps will contain any of the following: Aloe, essential oils, peppermint, coconut oil, cinnamon, olive oil, oats, sunflower seed or petals, Moroccan red clay or unrefined African Shea butter and many more.

  1. Essential Oils

You can transform your bath into a pleasant ritual by adding some essential oils to it.Essential oils are derived from wood, roots, bark, flowers and trees, and different oils serve different purpose. Choose peppermint to help relax your muscles after a hard day’s work, lavender to soothe and calm you, and tree tea oil for acne-prone skin, jojoba oil to smoothen the skin orcoconut oil to make your skin look more youthful. These oils also help to moisturize the skin as well as help to shed the dead skin cells.

  1. Salts

Adding salt to a bath has been used for long to help relax. But salt also does the work of pulling out toxins from the body. It takes good care of your skin, relaxes your muscles,energizes your body for the whole day and keeps you fresh throughout. So, the more the salt in your bath,the better it will be. Be generous with the quantity and hold the salt under the water as you take your bath.

  1. Body Scrubs

An exfoliating body scrub is not about giving the skin a pleasant smelling makeover.It is also about the body benefiting from the vitamins and minerals that are used during the process; Grapefruits reduce wrinkles and the coffee grounds minimize cellulite. A good scrub removes dead skin cells, bad odor and suntan to keep our skin ultra clean. So use organic body products for your shower and complete your bath, then apply the scrub evenly on your body and rub the areas with your palms. Lavender, lemon, honey, sugar and rock salt are some natural ingredients that can be used for a scrub.

A body scrub will consist of three basic ingredients:

  • An exfoliate, sugar and salt being the most common ones and ground coffee, oatmeal, rice bran etc also being used
  • Carrier oil for moisturizing the skin like sunflower oil, grape seed oil, hazelnut oil and sweet almond oil amongst many
  • Fragrance from the essential oils mixed in different proportions according to the skin type – normal, oily, dry, sensitive, mature, dehydrated, devitalized, acne-prone or skin with broken capillaries.
