Switching to natural beauty products

Interesting Articles

By now we all realize and are conscious of the fact that everything is connected; your thoughts become action, your actions affect those around you. A positive mindset can set you up for success and affirmations lead the way. The food you eat becomes you, it determines your energy, gut health and even your mood. Exercise releases natural endorphins that make you feel good while overindulging or being stagnant can leave you feeling depleted. All these mindful practices have one thing in common, they avoid toxicity whether that be toxic thoughts, food or even relationships. However, we are still allowing toxic ingredients into our lives by using chemical laden beauty products daily on our skin. We wanted to look at ways to switch up our beauty routine and incorporate more gentle and natural products.

Why choose natural products

There are so many reasons to switch to natural products that benefit not only you but also the animals and environment.

Reduce environmental damage

If you are wanting to lower your carbon footprint; your beauty products may be a good start. Synthetic beauty products contain harmful toxins which are released into the environment. Some of these products contain harmful parabens and phenols which can affect wildlife and marine life. For example, the sunscreen you use which is washed off into the ocean. Natural beauty products cause no harm to their surrounding environment.

Natural products are safer for you

Did you know that when you apply lotion to the skin, it can slowly sink into your bloodstream. This means that harmful toxins can enter your bloodstream and make you seriously ill. In fact, studies have shown that the average women use 12 products a day containing 168 unique ingredients. These ingredients can be extremely harmful as they contain endocrine disruptors which can cause hormonal imbalances, infertility and even cancer. Using natural products means you avoid harmful side effects.

Natural products do not test on animals

You might be surprised to learn that many big beauty companies still test on animals. Many of these testing procedures are deeply cruel and show no mercy or empathy towards these living creatures. Natural beauty products forego the use of animal testing and commit to practices that are ethical. If you are against animal cruelty, then you absolutely need to switch to natural beauty products.

Natural beauty products are more gentle on your skin

Fewer ingredients in products means less chance of irritation on your skin. With fewer harsh chemicals, there is less chance of a bad reaction or of your skin drying out. Natural beauty products contain more calming ingredients.

Cleanse, tone and moisturize

Nature’s Relief believes in all things natural so naturally we have switched our beauty products to more organic and pure ingredients. We have developed our own range products and have partnered with different companies that share the same ethics as us. Here we look at how to replace your more synthetic products in a basic three step regime.

Cleanse

We recommend a gentle face cleanse to start your routine using as simple ingredients as possible just to create a clean and fresh surface. Prana Naturals CBD infused soap is a great gentle choice for your face. This soap only contains two ingredients: 100% natural glycerine and full extract CBD. Glycerine is one of the most natural soap varieties and is great for all skin types. It’s gentler on skin than most soaps, making it a good choice for people who have particularly dry or sensitive skin. With the added benefits of FECO oil, its targets inflammation and helps reduce this.

Once your face is clean, you can apply a 100% pure and natural face mask. Unlike other masks, Nature’s Relief Moringa facial Masque with Bentonite clay is non-drying. The Moringa Fulvic Bentonite Facial Mask heals and regenerates skin tissue, drawing out toxins and effectively treating acne. It not only unclogs pores and makes them shrink, but also prevents blackheads and reduces the appearance of scars. It is an excellent exfoliator that effectively evens out skin tone.

You can then wash your face mask off with water or choose to do a double cleanse by using the Nature’s Relief anti-aging Moringa facial bar. The Moringa Cleansing Facial Bars combine anti-aging vitamins and minerals with antioxidants and a range of beneficial oils. Made with 100% biodegradable ingredients. Made with no artificial colourants, fragrances, perfumes, or synthetic chemicals.

Tone
The next step in your routine is the toner. Toning is important as it helps to balance your skin’s PH levels which prepares your skin for the next step of applying serums and moisturizers. Toning helps to create more vibrant and smooth skin. Unfortunately, many toners contain harsh chemicals that dry out the skin which is why Nature’s Relief has developed a natural Bulbine Moringa toner for naturally beautiful skin.

This toner contains natural anti-aging and antioxidant properties from Moringa leaf powder blended with potent collagen filling and protecting properties from aloe bulbina. Moringa extracts have been scientifically tested and shown to effectively slow the aging process of the skin, by activating an increased collagen production, reducing age-spots and wrinkles, naturally counter-acting the effects of UV damage and improving, firming and evening the complexion.

Moisturize

Possibly the most important step in your beauty routine is moisturizing. Moisturizing your skin helps to hydrate it and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Moisturizing also helps to balance your skins natural oil production. You can apply a serum before moisturizer for added hydrating benefits. Serums can give your skin a firmer and smoother texture.

Nature’s Relief has developed a firming serum that contains CBD as well as hyaluronic Acid. Nature’s Relief Filler Serum is superior for skin tightening, advanced hydration, and anti-ageing properties. Effective for scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, blemishes, puffy eyes, and pigmentation. Nature’s Relief also stocks the Prana naturals CBD face serum which is full of natural oils such as rosehip and Frankincense which is great for the skin. Lightly moisturising, this oil will leave your skin soft and hydrated while the ingredients get to work on creating a smoother and radiant complexion. This serum has been formulated using the purest and safest skin repairing oils that will penetrate deeply without clogging your pores.

The last step is a beautiful, natural, and hydrating face cream. We recommend our Moringa anti-aging cream. Moringa extracts have been scientifically tested and shown to effectively slow the aging process of the skin, by activating an increased collagen production, reducing age-spots and wrinkles, naturally counter-acting the effects of UV-damage and improving, firming and evening the complexion.
