Soap is one of the most common and important ingredients in any beauty routine. It’s also one of the most misunderstood. Everyone from makeup tutorials to barbers gives their soaps a new look with the help of soap design. Custom soap boxes are popular and can be use in various ways. They can be use to promote your soaps, or they can be use as gifts for your customers. But where to find the best soaps for your skin type, color, and preference? Here are some insider tips on how to make your soaps look more natural, smell more amazing, and last longer.
Soaps need mostly soap boxes
Yes, really. Soaps need boxes and not the super fancy plastic ones you find in soap shops. Soaps make from natural ingredients are meant to be handmade, so they often use their root materials to make the boxes. If you go this route, you’ll need to buy lots of natural soap and root material. You’ll also need a good amount of water, so you can make the boxes dry clean and boil water for detangling and conditioning.
Make Your Soap Look Natural
Look at the soaps in our gallery above. While some may have a great pigment or glitter look, most of them aren’t over-scent and have a balance of earthy notes and a light wash of color to match the skin tone, hair color, and eye color. Natural soaps don’t have too many chemicals in them either, so you won’t have to scrub them raw with a clogged-up washcloth.
Use Scents That Match Your Skin Type
Spritz your soaps with your favorite scents to get a natural-looking scent, or use essential oils and an essential oil diffuser to create a cozy atmosphere while you soap your skin. While essential oils and scents are easy to mix, creating your own is a bit of a challenge. You’ll need to do some research into how to do so, as many scent products don’t have essential oil diffuser options or essential oil post-soaping options. You’ll also need to consider the amount of time you’ll spend soaping your skin.
Drying Agents that Match Your Skin Type
Keeping your soaps moist is crucial to long-term health. Standard laundry methods (drying on a drier surface first) don’t keep your soaps coming back to you as clean, soft, and fresh as they could be. There are a few drying agents that work well with soft soaps like baby oil, body butter, and vinegary essential oils.
Dark Colors to Match Your Skin Type
Dark soaps are meant to be use after cleanings, not before. Soaps with a strong red, orange or yellow color can cause acne and sensor spots, while soaps with a complex green, mustard, or light yellow color can cause sensors and acne. Soaps with a light blue or coral color can be especially helpful in combating acne.
Add some exfoliation to Last a Long
Exfoliation is key to long-term health. You should thoroughly wash your face several times a week, and use a nourishing exfoliant. You can protect your skin’s collagen and natural oils by exfoliating your skin once a week.
Soap is a pretty easy item to make designs with, but when it comes to how to make soaps, it’s a bit of a creative process. Working with natural ingredients and using a lot of water, you’ll need to be sure to get your kit in order. Custom boxes are a good way of making your soap look unique. They make the soap more interesting and also more beautiful. Natural soaps are always drier than waterless soaps, so you’ll want to make sure to add a lot of water to your dry soaps. Soaps should never be too dry on the skin, and always have a drying agent in them.
