Natural Skincare

by | Dec 15, 2018 | Non-toxic living

Did you know that most skincare products on the market are loaded with ingredients that are actually toxic to your skin and body?

It’s true. Artificial ingredients and chemicals are used to have a positive effect on the skin. However those positive effects are often temporary, yet the negative effects last long term because the toxic ingredients are absorbed by the skin and build up within the body.

Thankfully, there are many natural and inexpensive options out there, and most of them can be found in your pantry!

Below, are some skincare alternatives for healthy, beautiful skin that can be used with the whole family! Just pick your skin type, and try adding these natural products to your daily routine.

Oily Skin
Exfoliating
– Equal parts sea salt and oil (either use castor oil , coconut oil or olive oil)  to create a natural scrub to brighten the skin. Gently apply in a circular motion, rinse with warm water, and pat dry.
Cleansing – Equal parts castor oil and olive oil. Massage in and wipe off with a warm cloth. I use a chemical free antibacterial cloths.
Toning – A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water kept cool in the refrigerator to splash on the face.
Moisturizing – May not be necessary for oily skin. But if needed, a thin coat of coconut oil will work great.

Normal/Combination Skin
Exfoliating
– Equal parts sugar (white or brown) and olive oil. Gently apply in a circular motion, rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Cleansing –  A mix of 1/4 castor oil and ¾ oil (olive or almond). Massage in and wipe off with a warm cloth.
Toning – A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water kept cool in the refrigerator to splash on the face.
Moisturizing – If needed, a thin coat of coconut oil will work great.

Dry Skin
Exfoliating
– Often not necessary for this skin type, but lightly rubbing a dry washcloth in circular motions can work if needed.
Cleansing –  A mix of teaspoon of castor oil in 1/4 cup of another oil like olive or almond). Massage in and wipe off with warm cloth.
Toning – A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water kept cool in the refrigerator to splash on the face.
Moisturizing – Plain, organic shea butter massaged into the face and neck.

When you feel like paying some extra attention to your skin, try this simple banana mask for glowing, soft, and toned skin:

  • Mash up one ripe banana into a smooth paste;
  • Apply it to your face and neck;
  • Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes;
  • Rinse it off with cold water.

You can also add a little plain yogurt or honey to this one for more acne prone skin.
