How To Make Homemade Green Tea Soap
Looking after your skin and keeping it well hydrated is essential to avoid dry skin which can lead to a dull complexion and premature ageing. Natural cosmetics are becoming increasingly popular and it's no wonder. They improve skin tone, giving it that natural glow without all the nasty chemicals found in many regular cosmetics. An excellent example of a natural anti-ageing ingredient is green tea, as it revives dull and uneven skin. If you're interested in adding green tea to your skincare routine, look no further than the following OneHowTo article: how to make homemade green tea soap.
Green tea soap is wonderful for the skin and boasts impressive properties that instantly boost skin tone. On the one hand, it fights aging and oxidation of cells, keeping your skin youthful. On the other hand, it eliminates accumulated toxins, prevents dryness and is antibacterial, making it ideal for combination or acne-prone skin.
As well as this, green tea soap can also treat certain skin conditions and alleviate discomfort and irritation caused by eczema and sensitive skin. Its relaxing effects also promote rest and help insomniacs to sleep better.
There are many different methods of making green tea soap but, in this article, we'll show you how to make soap that also has extra natural anti-aging ingredients to maximize its moisturizing and anti-wrinkle effects. To make green tea soap, you'll need the ingredients:
- 150 g of glycerine soap (will serve as base)
- 1 tablespoon of ground green tea
- 1 teaspoon of almond oil
- 1 vitamin E capsule
- 2 drops of avocado oil
The almond oil, avocado oil and vitamin E are the most effective natural products available for combating the signs of skin aging and giving skin a dewy, radiant and beautiful glow.
The first step is to melt the glycerine soap after first cutting it up into small pieces. Simply place in a pan and heat with a few drops of water until completely melted. Another option is to place the glycerine pieces in a bowl and melt them in the microwave on high heat.
Once you have melted glycerine, add a tablespoon of ground green tea to the pot and stir with a spoon so that the two ingredients are fully integrated. Leave the mixture on low heat for twenty minutes, making sure the ingredients don't overheat. Then, remove from the hob.
Next, add the other anti-aging ingredients: the almond oil, avocado oil and the liquid content inside the vitamin E capsule. Continuously stir the mixture whilst adding the ingredients and, to make sure no lumps or bumps remain, whizz it up in a blender. Then, simply pour the mixture into a soap mold to finish making the green tea soap and pop in the refrigerator until it becomes solid. Let it sit for two days at room temperature before using.
Incorporate this homemade green tea soap into your daily skincare routine and you'll soon notice your skin looking more hydrated, nourished, soft and supple.
