We all wash regularly (or at least I hope we do), but there’s a lot you can do to optimize how effective your skin and hair care routine is which will help you maintain good body health. Don’t worry, it doesn’t take much effort, time or money and the improvements you can make might lead to some significant results. So, let’s take a look at what you can do. I’m going to break it down into two main parts:

Skin Care Routine
Your skin is designed to protect you and while it may be tough in order to do this, it still needs care. Some of us have more sensitive skin than others as well, so looking after your skin is especially important in this case. There are 3 mains parts to a good skin care routine:
#1 – Cleaning Your Skin
Cleaning your skin requires more than just rinsing it with water. While that might get rid of the more visible dirt, it does little to fight any nasty bacteria, pollution and other nasties that your body doesn’t want, including excess oil produced by your own body. To effectively clean your skin, you’ll need a soap that tackles these problems to help leave your skin feeling fresh and clean. At Clever Soap, we have our own soap which is designed to do exactly that. We recommend using it daily, both on your face and body for a thorough clean.
#2 – Toning Your Skin
Toning the skin isn’t something people always think to do but it’s an important step to healthy skin that looks and feels great. Toners help to balance your skin pH and remove any excess dirt or oil that might be left after cleaning your skin. Fortunately, our soap is designed to help tone your skin as well as clean it so you don’t need to worry about going to the shop to buy another product. You’re all sorted.
#3 – Moisturizing Your Skin
Some people are blessed with naturally great skin and may not even consider buying a moisturizer to apply after cleaning and toning your skin. But many of us do need some good moisturizing to avoid dry and potentially chapped skin, and even those who don’t will likely benefit from it. To once again provide a complete soap that makes your life easier, our soaps benefit from ingredients that provide excellent moisturizing. This includes natural oatmeal, shea butter and a high glycerine content, all of which are designed to leave your skin feeling silky smooth and soft after every wash.
So there you have it. The 3 key steps to happy and healthy skin. You can buy products separately, or try our own soap which provides a complete package saving you time and money.
Hair Care Routine
Taking care of your hair and scalp doesn’t have to be difficult. It requires the same sort of treatment as your skin; it needs to be cleaned properly to remove dirt and excess oil, and moisturized to both look and feel good.
#1 Cleaning Your Hair
Cleaning your hair helps to remove dirt, excess oils and dead skin which your body naturally produces. Simply rinsing it with water isn’t enough, even if it looks like it does the job. A good shampoo is essential to maintaining clean hair and a healthy scalp. We make our own shampoo which is designed to provide everything you need. It works to provide a deep clean and exfoliate the scalp to get rid of all the tiny bits of dirt and dead skin that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
#2 – Moisturizing Your Hair
Cleaning your hair is crucial, but if you don’t moisturize as well, it certainly won’t feel or look as nice and it should. Many people use conditioner following a shampoo, but our shampoo is designed to condition and moisturize your hair while you wash it. It has a high glycerine content as well as containing aloe vera, both of which have excellent moisturizing properties.
So if you follow these steps, hopefully you can transform your skin and hair to get the healthy and natural look you’re after. It doesn’t need to cost the Earth or take hours each day. And to save time and money, be sure to check out our own products which are excellent at giving you complete care for your hair and skin.
