Read on to know the steps to make the steam facial that is said to prevent pimples and oily skin:

Step 1:

Start by thoroughly cleansing your skin with your favorite cleanser to remove the traces of makeup or dirt. Once it is thoroughly cleansed, pat dry your skin. Then, take at least ½ to 1 liter of plain water and transfer it to a large hot pan. Boil the water till it is hot.

Step 2:

Then, add about a teaspoon of turmeric, 3 to 4 pieces of cinnamon powder and a tablespoon of green tea to the boiling water. Now, turn off the flame.

  • Green tea has multiple skin benefits. Its main property is that it helps in achieving soft, clear and glowing skin. It reduces sun damage and inflammation. It contains large portions of polyphenols, which slows down the signs of aging, helping you to maintain beautiful and healthy skin.
  • Turmeric powder contains large portions of natural sulphur which acts as an antibiotic against skin infections. What can be better to heal your pimples than a strong natural antibiotic?
  • Cinnamon is a great natural skin exfoliant. It works as an antiseptic, astringent, antifungal and anti-viral aid. It cleanses deeply by exfoliating the skin. It also stimulates your skin pores, so that the ingredients in the mixture reach deeper into the skin, and work effectively.

Step 3:

After turning off the flame, take a clean spoon and mix all the ingredients so that we can activate the natural herbs and spices. The hot water will turn bright yellow in color because of the turmeric powder, but you needn’t worry! The color indicates the proper working of the active herbs.

Step 4:

Now take a thick towel and place it over your head, as we don’t want the steam to escape. Please check the temperature of the water. Remember that the water shouldn’t be extremely hot as it might burn and damage your skin. Start steaming your skin.

If you have sensitive skin, I would recommend you to take the steam for about 8 to 10 minutes. But, if you have combination to oily skin, you can take the steam for a good 20 minutes. Close your eyes, relax and take the steam to get the maximum benefits.

If you find the heat uncomfortable, you can easily take breaks between steaming to relax. Once you are done, pat dry your skin. Follow it up by applying your favorite toner and moisturizer to finish the steam facial.

Try this simple, yet effective steam facial to treat pimples and fight oiliness!

How to Make Homemade Soap

How to Make Homemade Soap

Introduction:

homemade-soap-recipe-1

Homemade soap is an ideal birthday present, teacher or hostess gift or wedding shower favor. Glycerine soap base comes in a few different varieties, such as honey, aloe and shea butter; most soap bases come without added colors or fragrance. You can easily personalize soap with fragrance, colors, and even names and short phrases as shown here.

Things You’ll Need

  • Clear and/or opaque melt-and-pour glycerin soap base
  • Melting pot with pour spout
  • Heat-safe, non-stick, silicon molds such as small loaf pans
  • Soap coloring
  • Fragrant oils such as lavender or rose (optional)
  • Shallow plastic box such as a Tupperware lid or tray
  • Small cookie cutters
  • Letter cookie cutters
  • Heat-safe mixing containers such as coffee cups

How to Make Colored, Scented Soap

You can make colored, scented soaps with melt-and-pour glycerin soap base, soap coloring, essential oil and soap molds. Any heat-resistant, nonstick silicon mold will work. Please see the last slide for an itemized list of tools and materials. you may also like to read:- fb covers , Health Fitness , How To , Vegetables Benefits , Pregnancy Calendar , Women Corner , Fruits Benefits , Beauty Tips

Melt the base over low heat. Glycerine soap base comes in a few different varieties, such as honey, aloe and shea butter; most soap bases come without added colors or fragrance.

To determine the amount of soap to melt, consider the size of your soap mold. The mold used here yielded 12 soaps, each 2 inches by 3 inches by 1 inch. One-fourth of a pound of soap base will make three soaps of this size; one pound of soap base is enough to make all 12 soaps of this size.

Transfer the melted soap to heat resistant container, such as a paper coffee cup, to add coloring or fragrance.

To add a scent to the soap, place 3 to 5 drops of essential oil per 1/4 pound of melted soap for a lightly fragrant soap. For a more fragrant soap, add more essential oil, little by little, until the desired fragrance is achieved.

To color the soap, add a few drops of soap dye to lightly color 1/4 pound of melted soap. The more dye you add, the darker the soap will become. Lavender (shown here) is made with 2 drops of red dye and 1 drop of blue.

Mix thoroughly and pour into molds. Allow soap to set for several hours on a flat surface or place mold in the refrigerator if you’d like to harden the soap faster.

Spell Out Words or Make Shapes in Your Soap:

homemade-soap-recipe-4

Melt about a one-fourth of a pound of opaque white soap base in a melting pot on low heat.

Add a little color, if desired; just be sure it’s not so dark that your shapes and colors aren’t visible. To add color, transfer the melted soap to a mixing container, add a few drops of color and stir. This color was made with 20 drops of red and 5 drops of yellow.

Pour the soap into a shallow tray, plastic box top or Tupperware lid. The tray shown here is a turned-over serving tray with a lip. A thin layer of soap no more than one-fourth of an inch high is best. Allow the soap to harden for about 20 minutes. Place the tray in the refrigerator if you want the soap to set faster.

Cut out names, words or shapes with small letter cookie cutters. Set the shapes aside.

Melt clear soap base over low heat. Pour this clear soap into one-fourth inch molds and allow to set for about 15 minutes. You don’t want the soap to completely harden, so do not place it in the refrigerator. You want the soap firm enough to hold the letters, but not completely solid. This step can take some practice. you may also like to read:- fb covers , Health Fitness , How To , Vegetables Benefits , Pregnancy Calendar , Women Corner , Fruits Benefits , Beauty Tips

Arrange the letters and/shapes in the molds — positioned as a mirror image — on top of the pre-poured clear soap. When finished, the bottom of the molds will be the top of the soap.

Pour more clear soap over letters. The soap must be warm enough to pour, but not hot enough to melt letters. This step is a bit tricky and requires a little bit of patience and practice. Reserve a few molds to practice until you get the hang of it.

Fill the soap molds completely with clear soap base. Or, stop one-fourth of an inch from the top, allowing the clear soap base to set and then pouring a layer of opaque soap over the clear layer. Allow the soap molds to harden for two hours.

Tips & Warnings:

You can add several drops of fragrant oils or dried flowers to the soap base after it’s melted. Try dried lavender, rose petals, lemon zest, oatmeal, or rosemary. Courtesy of eHow

homemade-creame-bath-soap

Making your own homemade soaps can be a fun and natural way to keep clean. The type of soap you make will be different depending on what ingredients you add to the soap mixture. Many ingredients can be be moisturizing, which can create a rich, cream bath soap helpful for people with dry or chapped skin. you may also like to read:- fb covers , Health Fitness , How To , Vegetables Benefits , Pregnancy Calendar , Women Corner , Fruits Benefits , Beauty Tips

Things You’ll Need:

16 oz. of olive oil
16 oz. of Shea butter
16 oz. of coconut oil
16 oz. of distilled water
7 oz. of lye
1 tsp. of essential oil
Glass measuring cup
2 glass candy thermometers
Double boiler
Wooden spoon
Soap molds
Safety goggles
Rubber gloves

Instructions:

1. Combine the oils and the butters into the top of a double boiler. Fill the bottom of the double boiler 1/2 full of water. Heat gradually over medium heat. Insert a glass candy thermometer, and carefully watch the temperature of the mixture. When the temperature reaches 110 degrees F, it is ready to combine with a lye water mixture.

2. Put on safety goggles and rubber gloves. In a well-ventilated room, combine the lye and the water in a glass measuring cup. Insert a glass candy thermometer to measure the temperature of the lye mixture. The temperature should reach 110 degrees F.

3. Carefully pour the lye mixture into the oil/butter mixture when they both reach 110 degrees F. Pour in 1 tsp. of an essential oil of your choice. Stir the mixture vigorously until the mixture begins to thicken to the consistency of pudding. This is called “tracing.” Once the mixtures “traces,” it is ready to be poured into soap molds.

4. Carefully pour the soap mixture into soap molds, and place them into a room that is cool and dark. The soaps will need to “cure” for at least 6 weeks. This “curing” process allows the ingredients in the cream soaps to combine chemically, creating a rich, lathery soap that will hold up well in a bath. Once the natural cream soaps have “cured,” they will be ready to use in a bath or shower. you may also like to read:- fb covers , Health Fitness , How To , Vegetables Benefits , Pregnancy Calendar , Women Corner , Fruits Benefits , Beauty Tips
