Finding The Perfect Natural Skin Care Routine

The majority of beauty products come full of artificial colors, fragrances, preservatives and stabilizers that can easily be absorbed through the skin’s pores. These chemicals can have a range of adverse long-term health effects on your body. Using chemically polluted products profoundly interfere with skin’s ability to heals, regenerates and detoxifies overnight. For this reason, an increasing number of women highly recommend natural skincare that nourishes and protects your skin. While using natural ingredients can be very useful for achieving beautiful skin, what you put into your body, also plays an enormous role in your outer appearance. A healthy diet, good sleep, regular exercise, and drinking plenty of water can additionally make your skin healthy. If you have consistently implement your natural skin regimen and still suffer from frequent skin problems or acne, try an alternative therapy such as acupuncture or craniosacral therapy.

So, to begin, if you want a gorgeous, glowing complexion, using only natural ingredients/ products, you need to start creating the right regimen for your skin type. Here is everything you need to know to establish a productive natural skincare routine.

Cleaning your skin

Clean skin is happy skin! Clean your face in the morning and before you go to bed. This will help wash away any excess dirt and oil that may have built up on the surface of your skin. Keep in mind that over-washing your face can easily disturb the natural pH and microbiome of your skin. Since the skin needs to breathe overnight, make sure you always remove your makeup before going to bed. Leaving your makeup overnight clogs the pores which may cause blemishes or blackheads. Try to use calming ingredients like aloe, lavender, chamomile, green tea polyphenols, and oats.

In general, the natural oil cleansing method is an excellent solution for any skin type, though the combinations of oils vary based on skin type. This method entails cleaning your pores of dirt and bacteria naturally and gently. It replaces the dirty oils with beneficial oils that can heal, protect and nourish your skin. Using oils instead of soap or detergent cleansers also help protect the natural lipid layer of the skin. Moreover, it protects the good bacteria that live there.

Perfect Holistic Face Regimen

CBD Oil

CBD oil for skin care is anti-inflammatory, which makes it an excellent cleanser for acne prone skin, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. CBD is known for its antioxidant properties that help regenerate new cells.  This oil balances out oily skin without clogging pores improves and restores skin elasticity. You can try mixing it with 10-12 drops of lavender essential oil, which is also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying and healing! CBD oil is best to be used in the evening to cleanse before you go to sleep.

olive oil

Olive Oil

Olive oil can be an effective way to remove makeup. It is rich in vitamins, including A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E. Olive oil,  has antioxidant properties, moisturizes and fights bacteria. If you’re prone to acne, using olive oil may help decrease your acne by killing off the bacteria that causes the acne.

coconut oil

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has many of the same beneficial properties that CBD oil has. However, it is generally not recommended for oily skin because it can clog the pores. Yet, coconut oil is perfect for removing makeup. Since it instantly dissolves any makeup, at the end of the day use first the coconut oil to remove your makeup and follow up with the CBD oil cleanser to make sure your skin is immaculate, balanced and moisturized.

Exfoliating

Exfoliation helps to keep pores clear and stimulates collagen production. You can rid your skin of dead cells manually using sugar, oats or apple cider vinegar to reveal newer, brighter skin cells underneath. Exfoliation not only makes your skin more glowing, but it also helps ensure that the products you layer on top are absorbed more deeply. If you have oily skin, exfoliate 1-2 times a week. If your skin is more sensitive or dry, peel no more than once a week.

Apply Toner

Toners are designed to rebalance the skin after cleansing. They help you get rid of excess oil, dirt, and leftover makeup after you wash your face. To rebalance your skin’s pH, use organic witch hazel. Also, you can use lemon, because it is an antibacterial ingredient that helps to clear up pimples and acne and smooth and brighten your skin. It helps reduce the oil on your skin and lighten dark spots, helping to even your skin tone. Keep in mind that lemon is phototoxic, which means that it can increase your skin’s sensitivity to UV rays. Try not to use lemon treatments before spending a lot of time outdoors, and always be sure to apply sunscreen on your face.

Moisturize

Using oils to moisturize your face keeps even the oily skin balanced and moisturized without clogging pores. Moreover, moisturizing is excellent for healing and repairing problem skin. Apply them while your skin is still damp from washing or rinsing to help seal in moisture.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil nourishing and moisturizing preferences makes it perfect for all skin types. Due to its light texture,  jojoba oil sinks deep and nourishes your skin (while other oils remain on top of it). Since it is very close to your skin’s natural sebum, it leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and protects it from rougher weather. Moreover, due to this characteristic, jojoba oil “tricks” oily skin types into producing less oil. It is an excellent source of antioxidants and is also rich in vitamin E. Wait about 30 minutes after moisturizing to apply the makeup to give the oil a chance to absorb into your skin. At night use an extra few drops of this oil for added moisture.

AvocadoAvocado Oil

Similar to jojoba oil, avocado oil deeply conditions your skin with lasting effects. It contains vitamin E, potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients that can nourish and moisturize the skin. However, it is heavier than jojoba oil, so use it more sparingly in your skincare routine.

Aloe vera juice

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera can help make your complexion clearer and smoother and reduce inflammation. It is especially beneficial with excessive dryness during winter. It is also effective at reducing wrinkles and premature aging and treating skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, acne, or excessive oiliness.
