Going “au natural” is the beauty look of the year. As more of us look for clean beauty products that are free of chemicals and eco-conscious, we’re also looking for products with natural ingredients and elements that work. Put away the chemicals and look out for natural elements that are highly effective and help your skin get back its natural glow.
Many individuals tend to be skeptical when it comes to vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free products because they think these products don’t work. However, you’ll be surprised by how good they actually are for you and how they get the job done with minimum damage.
Natural Elements to Add to Your Beauty Regimen
The following natural elements are great for your skin and easy to find right in your home!
The porosity of activated charcoal works to cling on to all the dirt and dead skin cells that might be lingering on your skin. This makes it highly effective to get rid of all the pollutants, dirt and other dust particles that damage and dull the skin.
Charcoal can help skin look cleaner and healthier, and it also cleanses the skin from harmful toxins. Activated charcoal can be found in face masks or made to consume as a drink.
This sweet ingredient provides hydrating effects to the skin when applied to the surface as a face mask.
Easy to use and available everywhere, raw honey has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties that can treat various skin conditions such as scars, blemishes, itchiness and dry skin.
Salt and beauty? Yes, you best believe it. Sea salt and other natural salts are rich in minerals such as magnesium and potassium that can help to relieve tension and softens the skin for a healthy look.
Besides soaking yourself in a saltwater bath, look out for body scrubs that list salt as an ingredient to boost glowing skin on your entire body.
Collagen is a naturally occurring chemical produced in our bodies that is responsible for firm and youthful skin. However, as we age, production of collagen starts to slow down causing wrinkles and lines.
Lucky for us, we can obtain collagen from external sources such as bone broth, skin vitamins and beauty products made from this ingredient.
A mud mask might sound messy, but it will do a whole lot of good for your skin. The perfect element for oily and acne-prone skin, mud is filled with healthy minerals that attract dirt and other toxins and works to cleanse away all the dead and impure skin particles.
Using mud masks regularly is a great way to exfoliate your skin and will leave you with a clean and healthy glow.
Jade has been around for many years as a popular healing method in Chinese medicine and Chinese beauty treatments as it de-puffs and smoothes the skin.
The use of Jade in facial massages has become extremely popular today as it boasts of benefits such as reduced stress, improved circulation and lymphatic drainage.
A more unconventional beauty element, algae comes with amazing antioxidant effects and fights free radical damage that contributes to wrinkles, acne and skin damage.
Rich in vitamin A and other vitamins, algae helps to fight wrinkles and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated without the use of unnecessary chemicals.
