Healthy Skincare

Natural beauty is all about healthy and glowing skin; and you will find a variety of natural skincare products and tips here because in life you should have choices. I will never promote one natural skincare product over another because I use a variety of different products as long as they don’t contain chemicals. I have found that my skin loves variety and I’ll bet yours will too.

When it comes to skincare products, I really don’t have a  favorite brand. I’m more concerned with the ingredients being used, so as long as the product is made with natural ingredients, I’m willing to try it. What matters most to me is that I’m not feeding my skin harmful toxins. As we should all know by now, what we put on our skin ends up inside our bodies; and this is why it is so important to pay attention to the ingredients in our skincare products.

If the products you use contain harmful ingredients such as toxic chemicals, colors, and fragrances, those ingredients make their way into your body, your blood and lymphatic system. Many skincare products contain a cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants.

Fortunately for all of us, there are now many conscientious cosmetic companies to choose from; and that makes it easier than ever to buy safer products for our skin.

The Treasure Trove – Why I’m Fickle with Skincare Products

skincareI don’t eat the same foods day in and day out; the same goes for feeding my skin. I don’t think it’s fair to my skin to always feed it the same food morning, noon, and night.

When I eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, I am providing my body with all the nutrients it needs. By trying different skincare products, I’m treating my skin to a variety of nutrients as well; and my skin clearly appreciates the variety. I’ll be 61 very soon and I’m proud to say my skin does not give away my age. I can’t say the same about my hair though… It’s screaming loud and clear that I’m no spring chicken. But that’s okay. My hair is naturally gray (salt & pepper actually) and I’m embracing it these days!

Back to skincare:  One little trick I do to increase the efficacy of any skincare product I buy is add a drop or two of essential oil to it. Doing this makes my creams and lotions more potent and nutritious and gives them a personal touch. I like to use a variety of essential oils just like I prefer a variety of creams and lotions; but I always use essential oils that work wonders on mature skin.

If you’d like to get better results with your everyday skincare products, you should try my little trick too. But first do a little research on essential oils to find out which oil provides the benefits you’re looking for. Whether your skin is dry, oily, or acne prone there is an essential oil to address your particular concerns.  Once you discover the amazing results essential oils will have on your skin and your health in general, you’ll want to keep you beauty chest stocked with all your favorite oils.
