A Few Natural Ingredients That Will TRANSFORM Your Skin!
Who doesn't love a little self-lovin'... especially when it's 100% NATURAL!
I mean, the last thing we want, these days, are toxins and unwanted chemicals rubbing off our skin and draining into our sewerage system, only to be released into the environment.
Here are a few ingredients to look out for in the skincare industry (apart from sugar) that we think will absolutely transform your skin. The way that Mother Earth would approve of!
Activated Charcoal is a blessing to skincare. It draws bacteria, chemicals, dirt and other nasty micro-particles from deep inside the pores, to the surface of the skin, to be scrubbed away.
Thus helping to fight acne and helping you to achieve a flawless complexion.
An antioxidant which contains several vitamins such as Vitamin E, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids which naturally moisturise the skin. Vitamin E can also treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
Antioxidants are substances that prevent oxidation, which is a process that produces free radicals and chemicals which can damage skin cells and contribute to cancer development.
Olive oil can also aid in preventing premature signs of aging on the skin and is recommended to be used after sun exposure as research suggests that it can fight off cancer-causing cells.
Emollients are substances that soften and moisturise your skin, whilst also aiding in decreasing itchiness and flaking.
Glycerin is a perfect example of this, helping to prevent and treat dry, rough and itchy skin. It will also lessen the annoyance of minor skin irritations.
Sea Salt is a vital component in body scrubs as it deeply cleanses pores, balances oil production and removes bacteria that can instigate breakouts and acne.
Plus, it is an amazing exfoliant that provides more of a rougher scrub.
Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet Almond Oil is highly potent with the glorious Vitamin E. It will also help to treat certain skin conditions by keeping the affected area soft and hydrated to reduce itching, which means that you can kiss the irritation of eczema and psoriasis goodbye!
Regular use of this light oil can protect your skin against radiation damage and oxidative stress, keeping it soft and supple.
Being a light, non-comedogenic oil, it will penetrate deep into the skin, dislodging dirt and debris in the pores and hair follicles, whilst also preventing blackheads and acne. Being non-comedogenic also means that this sweet oil is unlikely to clog your pores ad cause breakouts.
Finally, it can lighten your dark under-eye circles and is great for sensitive skin!
