Don't sleep on the natural skincare movement. While we may think these products are just marginally better for our bodies while not blowing our beauty budget – adjust your mindset. All-natural products are incredibly important, not just for the quality and integrity of the ingredients, but also for these reasons:
Supporting “green” brands that offer all-natural products is a step in the right direction. Take your advocacy to the next level and consider tossing your over-manufactured and potentially toxic skincare products. Products made from conventionally manufactured ingredients not only clog your pores, they harm our environment. Once discarded, these harsh chemicals seep into our soil, ending up in our water, and lurks around in our home. Yuck! One of our favorite all-natural products is our very own Luxury Face Oil. This every day moisturizing face oil is made with natural anti-aging rosehip oil and a blend of all natural, aromatic essential oils derived from plants, with a base scent of rose and jasmine.
It is better for your body! Carefully thought out ingredients can actually boost your skin’s overall well being, while harsher chemicals are automatically absorbed by the bloodstream. Whatever you choose to apply on your skin, up to 70% of that is directly absorbed! Consider your skincare products as carefully as the food you decide to eat. Another one of our favorite natural products is our Natural Body Oil. Our deeply hydrating body oil soothes your skin and brings out your natural and radiant glow. It’s made with sweet almond oil, organic jojoba oil, and a blend of all natural aromatic essential oils derived from plants with a base scent of lavender and chamomile.
Sensitive Skin Rejoice! Truly natural products have a much lower risk of irritating your skin. Those of us with sensitive skin know the pain of applying a new face mask, and having our face red, bumpy, and swollen by the time we remove it. Think about it this way – the better the quality of the ingredients, the more your skin will improve. We are a huge fan of Ursa Major products, they are: free from petrochemicals, SLS, SLES, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color, glycols, silicones and PEGs. Our “go-to” natural mask is Ursa Major’s Bright and Easy Flash Mask.
