3 Tips for Natural Skin Care

Updated: Aug 12, 2019



1. USE NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS & MAKEUP

You want to feed your skin, not clog it.

Read the labels. If you can’t find many words that you understand then, as a general rule, it's best avoided as it's likely to be high in synthetic substances.

Avoid mineral oils, you will see them written as petroleum jelly and wax or paraffin wax. These are made from petroleum not exactly eco-friendly, nor food for your skin! Try to buy products free of - parfum (synthetic perfumes) and synthetic colours (they will be labeled color or CL followed by 5 numbers e.g. 75000).

2. LESS IS MORE!

When it comes to skin products, it's better to put on less, wash it less, and pay less attention to it = less fussing, less picking, less worrying. The reason for this is, if you keep irritating your skin, it will not heal.

Secondly, your skin needs to be able to breathe.

Thirdly, the skin has is own eco-system, just as your digestive system does. If you keep cleansing, scrubbing, oiling and toning your skin there is much less chance your skin will be able to find its own natural balance.

Stress is a big problem for skin too. It depletes your adrenals, which can disrupt hormones, contributing to skin conditions. Learning to meditate and doing yoga or other relaxation techniques are great if stress is an issue for you.

3. CLEANSE FROM THE INSIDE
