Forget space, skincare is the new final frontier. It certainly feels just as vast and mysterious as space. With countless brands, new “it” active ingredients every other week and every influencer with glowing skin “dropping their whole routine below,” you can easily get lost in the black hole of skincare products.
However, one rule does seem to fit all logic: products with harsh chemicals probably shouldn’t be put on your biggest organ. If your CBD oil can seep into your skin and you can feel the effects of it, it isn’t far fetched to think that your cleansers and toners can do the same. Everyone is pointing toward natural skincare products nowadays. So we rounded up some of our favorite natural skincare products for your consideration! Get to reading and get to glowing!
We all know that beauty starts from within and when you’re feeling your best, you often feel like you are looking your best and have that extra GLOW. Well, we’re the first ones to admit when we’re feeling restless and tossing and turning all night, a lot of times we wake up looking like we have been through it. Lucky for us, Rituals + Alchemy’s Sleep Juju was created as a mineral and herbal formula to help calm your mind and fall deeply asleep so the next day you’re rejuvenated + restored.
It’s hard to feel like a blushing beauty when you are dealing with skin redness (speaking from experience here). Thankfully, Graydon skincare released the Putty to help deal with inflamed or irritated skin. And while we could talk about the great things inside this product, we should talk about what’s not in it. It’s free of sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrances and steroids, among other less-than-desirable things. It’s even cruelty-free, so you can feel just as good about this product as it makes you look!
.03 – Mizz Bloom Organics
Organic! Vegan! Cruelty-free! With all this in mind, it makes the temptation all too real to literally eat their white chocolate body butter (still probably shouldn’t). Mizz Bloom really knows the way to our hearts with these skincare products that are intended and marketed toward all skin types which we are totally here for!
.04 – Kalumi Collagen Bars
Another inarguable facet of skincare information is that usually, beauty starts from the inside out. Who knew skincare could taste this good? We are all for the collagen food trend, and this is much yummier than any powder out there! They come in three flavors (our personal favorite is the sweet potato) and are packed with 15 (!!!) grams of protein, so go pick some up for beauty on the go!
You know we love a product when we can count all the ingredients on one hand! You read that right, this beauty cream only has five ingredients! Honestly, we can love it just for the sake of it being minty because there are few things better than the minty tingle on your face. What a rush!
The skin on your lips is some of the thinnest and most delicate, so that means it needs extra special care. Thankfully this lovely lip balm is here to save the day with avocado, jojoba seed and hemp seed oils and beeswax making it the bee’s knees! You also know you also end up ingesting just about anything you put on your lips. So thankfully not only is it natural, but it also has lemon and lime oil to make it taste citrusy fresh!
When it comes to natural beauty products, it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. But, this beauty mist is just as good on the outside as it is on the inside! It is intended to prep your skin for gua sha (we had to Google it too). It’s also good for all skin types, so feel free to spritz away.
If you ever wondered what it would be like to wash your face with green juice, it would be a lot like using this cleanser! Youth the People boasts vegan, cruelty-free skincare made in our very own California. This cleanser is made with (you guessed it) superfoods like spinach, green tea and kale. It smells refreshing and gently cleanses without stripping the skin. (IBT pro tip: it says on the directions to use two pumps, but if you want to make your cleanser last, one pump is fine!)
There may be a lot of opinions in the skincare industry, but going for natural skincare products is always the safest bet. If you still feel like getting your glow on, make sure to check out our article on splurge-worthy beauty on a budget or some of our favorite sunscreens!
