How to Properly Exfoliate

Sunday, July 28th, 2013
lip scrub

When you are exfoliating your body from head to toe, don’t forget about your lips! Using a lip scrub like Natures Gardens Natural Sugar Lip Scrub will do the trick at leaving your lips completely soft and kissable; to match the rest of your freshly exfoliated body.

 

How to Properly Exfoliate

In order to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant, exfoliation must be done; especially as we age.  The keys to remember here are to have an exfoliating tool like a loofah or wash cloth, your exfoliating scrubs (one for body, one for face) and moisturizer ready.

The best time to start the exfoliation process is before a shower or bath.  By rubbing down your body before getting it wet, you will be able to remove dead skin cells, therefore allowing the new skin cells to be cleaned and pores unclogged.

Never exfoliate if you have skin that is sunburned, areas with cuts, or open wounds.  Exfoliating these areas will be very painful for you.

If you are interested in making some great exfoliants for your skin, check out Natures Garden’s Scrub Recipes for some awesome do it yourself scrubs containing some great exfoliants.

Steps for Exfoliating Your Skin:

1. Using a loofah (for oily skin), wash cloth (for sensitive skin), exfoliating gloves (for normal skin), or bath pouf; wipe your body down from head to toe.  This should occur before you step into your shower or bath.  The goal of this step is to remove or loosen any dead skin cell in order to properly exfoliate your skin.  In order to properly exfoliate the soles of your feet, you may want to use a pumice stone since typically the skin here is much harder.  This is done in a circular motion, and be careful not to press to hardly.

2.  Next, step into the tub and wet your body.

3.  Then, apply your exfoliating body wash or scrub to your exfoliating medium (loofah, cloth, gloves, etc).  When you are ready to start washing your body, you will want to do this is a small circular motion.  Although it is not necessary, using a body brush is the easiest way to exfoliate those hard to reach places of your body.  If you are exfoliating your face too, make sure you use a facial exfoliant.  Body exfoliants and facial exfoliants vary in the amount of gentleness for your skin.

4.  When you are ready to rinse, use lukewarm water.  Once all of the cleanser/lather is rinsed off, you will want to do one more final rinse with the coldest temperature water that you can take.  Using the cold water will help to close your pores that were just exfoliated.

5.  Finally, step out of the tub and immediately apply your body lotion.  You still want your skin to be damp.  Since you just exfoliated, you will want to make sure it is a moisturizing lotion.  Since exfoliating your body can be drying process, you want to make sure you are allowing your skin to stay healthy and hydrated.

A great body lotion recipe which is very healthy for your skin is Natures Gardens Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion.  The herbs used in this recipe are rich in skin loving benefits.

One of the best facial cream recipes is Natures Gardens Natural Facial Night Cream.  This cream also has super nutrient herbs that are wonderfully healthy for your face.

Happy Exfoliating!

Bath Bombs and Luxury Soaps

fragrance oils1. What is your name and Your Company Name: Marlene Nicosia/Spa Girl

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? Meeting at a crossroad several years ago with decreasing demand for what I had been doing for the previous 35+ years (medical transcription), and also going to be relocating to the Chicago area as my daughter was having a baby and I would be full-time babysitter, I met with a couple of ladies who had successful soap companies and was awestruck by the concept of making handmade soaps from oils and lye. I had always been in love with essential oils and natural products and this was a perfect fit. I began my journey in 2009 into handmade. Although I have seemed to find my niche with bath bombs, my goal is to continue to add a KidSpa and SpaPure line that is fragrance-free with natural colorants, essential oils and beneficial clays.

3. What products do you make and sell? Bath bombs, luxury soaps, Kids Spa line including sugar scrubs, cupcake soaps, bubble bombs, glycerin soaps.

4. What are your business goals? We are working on our website and hope to have it ready in the next few weeks. I would also like to establish wholesale accounts for handmade soaps including our SpaPure natural line of products.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden? What are your favorite products from Natures Garden? I love the products, pricing and service from Natures Garden. We carry over 50 fragrance oils from Natures Garden. I love to check out the Best Sellers section and know when I’m adding them to my line; they are guaranteed to be received well by my customers and will become my best sellers. I have purchased soap molds, soap making supplies, and always pick up a few new fragrances with every order.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business? I have officially been in business since 2002, but I have been making my own products since the 1980’s. Having sensitive skin and not being able to use commercial products put me on the course to find all natural alternatives to skincare. Those products were given to friends and family as gifts and eventually as my test marketers. It wasn’t until a friend suggested I sell my products at a craft show that I realized how much I loved informing people the benefits of all natural products. An educated customer always comes back for more.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  Handmade soaps, lotions, lip balms, sugar scrubs, shower gels, foaming hand soaps, soy and palm wax candles. Private Labeling for shops and personalized products for weddings, corporate events, showers and special occasions are very popular with customers right now too.

4.  What are your business goals?  This is my full time job. I am a single mom to 3 teenage kids, so I am able to be both an attentive parent and a successful business owner. Currently my products can be found in many shops in Connecticut, but I hope to be in shops all over the country.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  The candle fragrances from Nature’s Garden are awesome! Great throw, even when unlit! My customers seem to be drawn towards them. Most of my candle scents are from Nature’s Garden and I think that they will all be very soon.

We have been in business for 10 years.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business? My motivation to go into the soaping business was after I tried a nice bar of homemade soap that my Mother-in-Law made and didn’t want to use store bought soaps ever again.  So I decided to start making my own soaps but just took it to the next level.  Her bar was a regular bar made with the basics of Oil, water and sodium Hydroxide and it was great so I knew from that point after studying and looking into it that I could make a wonderful bar of soap with a few added ingredients.  I’ve been in business for 7 years now.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make homemade bar and liquid soaps, lotions, body butters and sugar scrubs.

4.  What are your business goals?  My ultimate business goal is to actually be able to own a store front in addition to my online business.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I use Natures Garden’s fragrance oils and I LOVE them.  I’ve also purchased some of Natures Garden’s  soap colorants.

Handmade Soaps

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

newhaircut 1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Dana Huff, and my company is New England Handmade Artisan Soaps.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I really decided to go into business after friends told me I needed to sell my soaps. I love to make soap, and I was starting to rack up quite a collection. I thought selling might be one way to move some of the soap out of my house so I could make more.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make soap and dabble in sugar scrubs and body butters, but I haven’t sold any of my body butters yet.

4.  What are your business goals?  Eventually, I would love to be a resource for people who want to learn more about handmade soap and to use quality handmade soap. After I started using handmade, I never went back. I think we owe it to our skin to take care of it. It’s the largest organ in our body. Soap is also an affordable luxury. It is a small thing you can do to feel good about yourself, and I want to help others find their way to handmade soaps because their skin deserves it.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I use a lot of your fragrance oils, which I find are high quality and smell great, but also a great value. I don’t think it’s possible for me to pick a favorite. I also love your sweet almond oil and avocado oil. I have found Nature’s Garden to have great value for these products. I have also ordered French green clay, which I used in my Marseille-style soap called Provence, a great facial soap. I use something from Nature’s Garden in everything I make! Barely a week goes by that we don’t receive a package from Nature’s Garden at my house. My husband jokes that the UPS man knows him and waves at him when they see each other out on the street (which is true!).
