5 natural skincare products to include in your daily routine
Daily rituals are the foundation of prospering into your best self every day. They can be calculated and comforting. But when life happens, your attached routine gets altered, and the shift from normalcy can throw off your morning. However, sometimes a change away from your habitual products can feel stimulating. It can feel unversed and create oddity. Before you consider changing your precious rituals, ask yourself a couple questions:
Do I have too many products in my cabinet?
Do I neglect most products?
Do I feel like my products are kind to my skin?
Instead of hoarding 27 items in your bathroom, try eliminating the clutter with a more minimalistic approach. Merging natural products into your cabinets and onto your skin can create a form of self-love in your mornings and nights.
Cleansing your skin
Energize your morning by activating your skin with Young Living Charcoal Bar Soap. This soap not only awakens your mind with its infused Orange Essential Oil blend, but also helps brighten those dreadful Monday mornings. At the end of a long day, the effective absorption attributes of activated charcoal pulls out dirt from daily environmental pollutants, without leaving your skin dry and uncomfortable. Applicable for combination, oily, or acne-prone skin.
Drying out those blemishes
Cleanse out the oils that block pores and create blemishes with Young Living Tea Tree Essential Oil. Tea tree is extracted from a melaleuca alternifolia shrub, also known as narrow-leaved paperbark. This magical Australian-native shrub disinfects pores through its antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. Storing this anti-inflammatory oil in your cabinet will be there for you when you’re ready to vanish those blemishes. For more sensitive skin, dilute with a carrier oil such as coconut, grapeseed, or jojoba oil.
Nourishing your skin
To moisturize, lathering on this lightweight Dirty Girl Farm Rosehip and Hibiscus Facial Lotion will hydrate your bare, cleansed skin. Originated from India, also known as the “botox plant,” the Hibiscus flower has been known to maintain skin elasticity, while also providing powerful antioxidants to your skin. You might think rosehip seed oil comes from the petals of a rose plant, however, it comes from the fruit (seed) that is left behind from the flower after its petals have fallen. This balanced and synergistic blend of ingredients keeps you comfortable underneath makeup or just before climbing into bed.
Toning your skin
Witch hazel is probably one of those products found in your grandma’s beauty cabinet — it goes beyond just skincare, including hair care, mouthwashes, personal hygiene products, and more. That is, before the abundance of commercial, chemical-filled products existed. T.N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel helps cleanse and even out your skin, treating any redness, blemishes, or everyday skin irritations.
Hydrating your skin
This self-explanatory product, Glossier Soothing Face Mist Rosewater Spray, consists of rosewater and aloe — aiding stressed and dehydrated skin. Use as makeup setting spray or throughout the day when you need to quickly cool off after the gym or as a pick-me-up to cope with the 2 p.m. hump at work.
LAST TIP: Don’t be shy to explore outside of mainstream brands. Love your skin and it will love you back if you treat it with plant-powered products!
