#SP Incorporating More Natural Beauty Products Into Your Regime

Nowadays, we are relatively used to picking up whatever beauty products we are recommended without really taking any notice of what they’re actually made from. We’re so used to everything having an extensive list of ingredients on the back that we don’t even stop to question what some of the previously unheard of elements are or where they are sourced. This is, of course, problematic. Various chemicals, artificial filler ingredients, and artificial colours or scents that are commonly used in beauty products can actually have detrimental effects on your skin, causing irritation, redness, or adverse reactions. To protect yourself, you should invest in products composed primarily of natural ingredients. This way, you know exactly what you are putting on your skin. What’s more? They’re better for the planet too! It’s a win-win situation. So, to get you started on the right foot, here are a few natural beauty products you might want to try out.

Argan Oil

Chances are that this isn’t the first time you’ve heard of organic argan oil - it’s receiving increasing amounts of recognition and praise from beauty specialists and everyday consumers alike at the moment. Originating in Morocco, argan oil is commonly referred to as “liquid gold”, and for good reason! It is naturally rich in Vitamin E, and can give a healthy shine to your hair and beautiful glow to your skin. It can also be used to nourish your lips and nails! The ever growing popularity of this item has resulted in various low quality argan oils being placed on the market at extremely low prices, but you should look for pure, unrefined, and certified organic oil, free from parabens, triclosans, phthalates, mineral oil, silicones, artificial fragrances, and artificial colours.

Rosehip Oil

Sticking with the theme of healthy natural oils, let’s take a look at rosehip oil. Organic rosehip oil is packed to the brim with naturally occurring antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. These all serve to hydrate your skin and provide as smoother and clearer complexion with extended use. Perhaps the most popular benefit of rosehip oil is its ability to tackle signs of photoaging, such as dark spots and fine lines, by encouraging the skin to regenerate itself. Look for rosehip oils that have been cold pressed. These prove to be the best at what they do!

Natural Scrubs

Chances are that you already use an exfoliating scrub in your weekly skincare routine. While these would be a little harsh on your skin to incorporate into your routine on a daily basis, they do a brilliant job of removing dead skin and unclogging pores. Natural scrubs are generally composed of brown sugar or sea salt combined with a whole host of other complementary natural ingredients, such as coconut, peach, vanilla, or blueberry. You should, of course, use different scrubs for your face and body. Scrubs specially formulated for the face will be gentler.

These are just a few different natural beauty products that are proving popular and are consequently widely available. They are better for you and better for the planet, so what’s not to love? Incorporate a few into your skin care routine as soon as possible!
