Do you know what your skin is doing?

Food for thought: Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it. Scary, isn’t it? Read labels and know what you’re using.

Caring for your loofah

We’ve discussed how to make natural soap last longer with a wooden soap dish, but we haven’t discussed caring for your loofah.

Exfoliation is a must for smooth skin and loofahs are the perfect tool for the job. They’re available in several materials, but a natural one is recommended by dermatologists.  Personally, our team members love ours, but those of us with sensitive skin must take it easy on use.  An optimal schedule is once or twice a week for those with sensitive skin and up to three times a week for those with regular skin.

How often do you clean or replace your loofah?  Those babies can hoard bacteria and hanging them in the shower to dry isn’t good enough to kill it.  Dermatologists recommend that you get a new one every month and clean them well with an essential oil or bleach solution.

If you’re in the market for a natural loofah, Noir Naturals has one for you.  They’re just $2 each and straight from nature.

How to care for your natural soap dish

A wooden soap dish is pretty and useful.  It can add a little nature to your bath decor and extend the life of your soap bars.  Keeping soap dry between use is key to making it last longer – this is especially true of natural soap.  But how do you care for the soap dish? Don’t worry – it’s easy!

All soap can leave a little gunk behind.  It’s unattractive, but easy to clean.

Dish before

Just run a towel or cleaning rag through the grooves to clean out the gunk and rinse.  Or just run it through the dishwasher.  Let it sit and dry.

Dish when wet

Once it dries, it’s ready to hold your favorite bar of soap again.

Dish when dried

Noir Naturals’ Cypress Wooden Soap Dish is durable, attractive, and has deep grooves that help soap drain well.  It fits in nicely in the kitchen or bath and is just and lasts a long time with proper care.  Get yours for just $4 each and perk up your decor while extending the life of your soap.
