We’re always on the lookout for smarter, simpler ways to take care of our health and beauty, both for the benefit of our wallets and our overall well-being. Thanks to the green revolution that has swept the world during the last several years, we now have access to a wide variety of products and solutions that are based on the goodness of Mother Nature and its best possible picks. We’re talking about organic, natural ingredients that are much more nutritious for your skin, making them the best possible option for your beauty routine.
If you’re looking for those several must-haves to replace the old, chemical-filled items in your bathroom cabinet, the following are some of the best you can find for your skin!
Start with your scalp
For fragile locks that need that extra-gentle treatment and a bit of added care to handle the many forms of pollution we’re flooded with (water and air included), there are many organic shampoo options to choose from. If you take a closer look at the ingredient list, you’ll see that nourishing oils top the list as some of the most beloved hair and scalp elements for proper hair.
From jojoba, argan, all the way to now already loved coconut oil, shampoos packed with them are a dream-come-true for your strands. Then again, soothing aloe vera juice and similar herbal remedies found in these products are also very suitable for a wide variety of skin types, including super sensitive skin and those prone to eczema or psoriasis. Just make sure your dermatologist approves!
In addition to choosing cleansing and washing items that officially fall into the realm of skincare, why not make your makeup double as skincare and an added punch of nourishment? After all, with a sun-protective foundation that doubles as a concealer as well as a finishing powder, you can cut your routine in half with a single product.
Then you can opt for a lip gloss that contains wonderful oils such as moringa and give hydrate your lips in addition to giving them that wonderful shimmer. If you prefer lipsticks, various brands make them also packed with lovely moisturizing oils and minerals, so you never have to tint your lips with harmful ingredients ever again.
When it comes to your staple beauty routine for every morning and evening, your skin actually gets the most nutrients and caring ingredients precisely through this repetitive ritual. It’s the basis of your beauty and the foundation that you need in order for all other products and makeup items to work their magic. That is why you should choose reliable natural anti-ageing skincare brands such as Edible Beauty with ingredients such as coconut milk, to maintain that youthful glow and prep your skin for the next steps.
From, for instance, a great active charcoal-infused soap bar, your nourishing cleansing lotion, all the way to your moisturizer and toner, focus on finding ingredients that are packed with vitamins, minerals, and oils to keep those lines and wrinkles at bay. Add to that an occasional revitalizing mask and a serum to reduce sun damage, and you’ll be good to go.
Pampering your body
This wouldn’t be a complete head-to-toe guide if we skipped the rest of your beautiful self, so let’s focus on finding body lotions that mimic the same natural principles of everything you use for your facial skincare. First of all, you can always stick to a single, all-body-perfect soap bar that cleanses and purifies, such as those that contain goat milk, active charcoal, and similar squeaky-clean items that will not overburden your body with toxic chemicals. Plus, they last longer, and they take significantly less space in your beauty cabinet!
You can also find lotions, butters, and serums that you can use on your entire body, your face and hands included. However, make sure you check if the ingredients are suitable for such usage for your skin type. For example, the same goodies such as argan oil, a range of citrus oils, and rosehip oil are known to be beneficial for your entire body. If your skin likes thicker, greasier texture, then, by all means, butters and oils are your ideal choice, while lotions and creams can still pack a nourishing punch without the heavy texture for summers!
On a final note, you can enrich your beauty collection with a few carefully-selected additions that will further help you in your natural quest. For example, using a natural deodorant without those pesky chemicals can still help you smell fresh hours on end. Think in terms of aloe vera, jasmine oil, coconut oil, or even those refreshing minty ones with eucalyptus.
You can wrap up your beauty basket with a natural face mist that you can carry with you in your purse at all times, giving you a perfect tool to revamp your look without packing on additional makeup or worrying about harmful ingredients!
