Nature offers a remedy for every condition, including skin care. We are all guilty of unconsciously selecting products that claim to show instant results but are actually chemical-laden skincare products with artificial fragrances.
The artificial fragrance, their smooth glide on our skin, and their instant results draw us in. But, we cannot ignore the fact that the more immediate the consequence, the more damage it is likely to do in the long run.
Even though we are aware of the chemicals they exude onto our skin and into our bodies, it can be difficult to shift your entire routine. It goes without saying that in our fast-paced society, the majority of us are captives of habit.
But things are slowly but surely changing. We are re-discovering the benefits of natural products as we explore the benefits offered by incredible ingredients in nature.
If you are looking for that push to kickstart your all-natural skincare routine, you are definitely in the right place!
Defining ‘Natural’ Skincare
Unfortunately, the term ‘natural’ is not regulated by anybody when used to label products. This means that brands are free to use the term in their marketing and promotional activities as they see fit; giving rise to a lot of leeway for greenwashing practices in the beauty industry.
However, there are still some steps you can take as a customer to ensure that the products you are incorporating into your natural skincare routine are genuine and not simply made to appear as such.
Make sure you read our comprehensive guide on clean skincare that highlights all terminology related to the natural and clean beauty industry.
Creating a Mindful & Natural Skincare Routine
Implementing a natural routine is not as difficult as it may seem. Here’s a simple 2-step process you can follow before adding new natural products to your routine to ensure that you protect all your skin needs!
Check the Ingredient Label
Before purchasing a product, read the ingredient label on the back to ensure that it does not include any dangerous or harmful components. A quick online search may be quite helpful to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of any ingredient.
If you are unsure about a particular ingredient's potential effects on your skin, speak with your doctor. The Skin Deep Database by the EWG is another place to look for potentially dangerous ingredients.
- Be wary of claims that products are Natural and Organic
The absence of regulations in this sector gives businesses a lot of leeway. Words like "organic," "natural," or "cruelty-free" might not accurately describe the ethos of the company.
Because their goods must pass stringent testing before being deemed safe, look for brands that go to great lengths to obtain third-party certification. For instance, Empress Naturals has a USDA organic certification.
Developing Natural Routines for Different Skin Types
Dry and Flaky Skin
Natural skincare can be incredible to battle dry and flaky skin. Use the power of nature to up your moisturizing game and nourish your skin from within.
Choose mild cleaners:
If you use a cleanser that is overly abrasive on your skin, it could become drier. Make careful to use a mild, non-foaming cleaner to prevent further dryness.
Pick creamy cleansers that strengthen rather than weaken your skin's barrier. The Daily Glow Cleanser with Argan Oil from Buffalo Gals is fantastic!
Up your Moisturizing Game:
Organic and Natural moisturizing creams that replenish your skin's moisture are essential. Choose products with pure, eco-friendly ingredients, like Rosehip Seed Oil.
Rosehip Seed Oil's emollient qualities help your body produce more estrogen, which improves water retention and gets rid of dry skin. Empress Naturals' Liquid Gold contains 100% Pure Rosehip Seed Oil sourced all the way from Chile!
Acne is no doubt a pesky skin issue to get rid of, especially if you are prone to sensitive skin. It can affect you at any point in your life even during menopause. Here are some natural tips to keep it mind when combating persistent acne.
- Use ingredients suitable for your skin:
To prevent unexpected breakouts or rashes, use products that are friendly with your skin. To make sure the ingredients are suitable for your skin, do a patch test of each new product on your wrist or skin.
Add mild anti-inflammatories to your skincare regimen:
Rosehip Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Geranium Oil, and many other pure ingredients soothe and relax your skin to help stop acne and pimples.
These oils, which are abundant in antioxidants, work as anti-inflammatory and regenerative agents to speed up the cell turnover process in your skin.
Try Empress Naturals Luxe Night Elixir, which is specifically formulated for all skin types and has the ideal anti-inflammatory ingredients!
Oily SkinThe right ingredients can be god-sent in helping control the excess sebum produced for those with an oily skin type.
- Don't Cleanse Excessively:
Throw away your old facial cleanser since it likely contains toxic additives that are causing your skin to become oilier than it should.
You require a cleanser with moisturizing ingredients that are suitable for use on oily skin. Be mindful not to overdo it!
Don't wash your face upwards of twice a day, and use warm water. Over washing your face will not help you regulate excess oil.
Try a Facial Serum:
Using highly concentrated natural ingredients in a serum is an excellent approach to nourish your skin.
If you think that serums are not made for your oily skin, try Empress Naturals Luxe Night Elixir!
This rejuvenating serum is ideal for oily or acne-prone skin since it contains Rosehip seed and Vitamin E to manage excess sebum.
