In our last article we gave you some tips for all-natural beauty products. These are things you can buy at your local drugstore and might be more sensitive to your skin, allergies or just may be a bit cheaper than the average beauty products. We have found a few more and want to share! These amazing, daily found products might be what you are looking for when it comes to your hair or skin needs. We know there is hardly a at-home shampoo recipe that will really do the trick.. but some of these might get you on the path of all-natural.
Witch-hazel: It often comes in a pure form but can be found with hints of rose and other oils as well. Witch-hazel has a number of benefits including helping reduce inflammation, tightening pores, and can even help reduce the redness and intensity of razor bumps! Witch-hazel is commonly used to reduce acne, as it acts much like a toner that cleanses your skin of excess oil, but it can be because of this that it may not be ideal for those with extremely dry or sensitive skin.
Rose Petal Toner: Roses are soft, sensitive and smell amazing. Rose Petal Toner is no different! This is a great product for those with sensitive skin. Regular toners can be too harsh and actually cause the redness you are toning if you aren't careful. Rose petal water and toner both are great to hydrate your skin and help even tone. Watch carefully for those "Rose Petal Toners" that are not all natural as they may just be adding a rose smelling perfume to their product.. this is the opposite of what we want!
Argan Oil: Although still found in the beauty isle, Argan Oil is one of the few beauty products that can be considered all natural. The oil coming from the Argan nut has anti-aging properties and is becoming more and more popular as it's effects are seen. If you have sensitive skin natural oils are a good bet for hydrating your hair and face without harsh repercussion. Although Argan Oil is mostly used to increase hair growth and make your hair glossy it can be good for skin psoriasis and rosacea.
Organic Clay Mask: To treat yourself to some specialty skin care naturally we recommend an organic clay mask. Organic meaning they do not add loads of ingredients along with it. Tip: if your "clay" mask is not the color of clay (red, brown, grey) it is likely not all-natural or possibly not even close. Clay masks that are purple, pink and green (yes, we've seen them) are definitely not the clay we are talking about. There are many healing properties of certain clays that contain minerals and vitamins! When used correctly they help bring vibrancy to the skin and help tighten pores.
Hopefully, these all-natural beauty products will help you with either your sensitive skin, allergens, pocket book, or possibly just your desire for a more natural and low-maintenance hair/skincare routine.
