We’ve said it before, and we will say it again: Natural is always better. Whether it’s what you put inside your body, or on it, ingredients that are close to nature will always be a safe bet when it comes to healing yourself from the inside, out. From acne Prone to dry skin, Mother nature has provided a fix for all your skin concerns, so put down those products filled with chemicals that you can’t even pronounce and opt for skincare gems that contain the best of the best of what nature has to offer.
For Acne Prone Skin:
Tea Tree Oil
The magic of Tea Tree Oil is no secret. If your skin is acting up from stress, a bad diet, or just genes, and you’re tried every harsh chemical to treat your acne with no success, it’s time to give Tea Tree Essential Oil a shot. Also known as Melaleuca, this essential oil boasts anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties is a great natural alternative for treating breakouts caused by bacteria. It not only calms redness, swelling and inflammation but can even prevent and reduce acne scarring, leaving you with smooth, glowing skin. Just make sure to dilute this potent elixir with a carrier oil such as Conaturals’ Argan or Coconut oil before applying and watch your skin transform, for the better.
Another effective ingredient against Acne is Neem extract. Neem has been touted as a natural remedy since hundreds of years, particularly in subcontinental culture, and for good reason. It contains powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal components, such as Azadirachtin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Carotenoids, Linoleic Acid, Oleic Acid and Nimbidin. Just like Tea Tree Oil, products with Neem Extract are anti- bacterial and will combat acne caused by nasty bacteria, without drying out your skin! Neem extract is also effective in treating hyperpigmentation by balancing out the melanin secretion and lightening dark spots.
For Dry Skin:
Ladies with dry, sensitive skin, rejoice! Because Rose Extract will be your skins savior. Roses contain a complex concentration of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that impart intense hydrating properties and minimize redness while soothing irritation. Rose extract also plays a key role in preventing cellular oxidation caused by environmental stress, like pollution and exposure to harmful fumes. If you have unknowingly stripped your skin of moisture using harsh cleansers, your skin is likely to start over-producing oil to compensate. Roses can help balance the hydration of skin, which in turn can help prevent excess oil production. And since the pH of roses is almost identical to that of human skin, it is perfect for adding hydration and anti-inflammatory properties without causing pH imbalances. In the form of Conaturals’ Organic Rose Water, which is also infused with Geranium, it can be quickly and easily applied before makeup or other skincare products, allowing you to reap it’s benefits while on the go! For an even longer lasting glow, Conaturals’ Rose Face Gel combines Rose extract with Aloe Vera to keep your complexion petal soft and beautifully dewy all year long.
Not only is oatmeal a superfood that can stave off serious health conditions like heart disease and obesity, it is also a super ingredient you should be looking for in your skincare products! Oatmeal can remove the buildup of dead skin cells that are clogging up your pores and acts as a natural moisturizer. Its mild pH and anti-inflammatory properties help keep the skin exfoliated, combating dry skin and the itching that comes with it. Oatmeal also protects the skin from external irritants by lending moisture to the skin. If you’re someone who suffers from dry skin, try Conaturals’ Honey and Oatmeal Cleansing Bar, which is gentle enough to use every day and more effective than chemical based face washes when it comes to battling dryness!
For Normal Skin:
For those weighing the pros and cons of adding lavender oil to your beauty arsenal, we’re here to make your decision easy. Lavender not boasts potent anti-inflammatory properties, but it is also ultra soothing for the skin and can even heal sunburn as it promotes the regeneration of skin tissue. Lavender also contains a myriad of antioxidants which may help protect against damaging free radicals which can dramatically age the skin. These free radicals are at least partly responsible for the development of fine lines and wrinkles and so blocking them with an antioxidant can have anti-aging benefits. Conaturals’ Lavender Essential Oil is a potent and a 100 percent natural formula that can be used to reap all the benefits listed, but if oil is not for you, Conaturals’ Lavendar and Chamomile Daily Essentials Face Wash is your perfect match and will give your pores a deep cleanse from within and allow your skin to absorb all the natural goodies Lavender hosts.
Just as chamomile helps calm the mind and body, it has similar effects on the skin. The soothing plant boasts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help calm the skin, reducing redness and blemishes. It can even relieve skin irritations like eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. The antioxidants also help boost skin health to bring out an inner glow and even fade dark spots and under-eye circles. The polyphenols and phytochemicals in chamomile are known to speed up cell regeneration, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. As if these weren't enough reasons to get on board with chamomile in our skincare, these polyphenols also fight against harmful free radicals, protecting our skin from environmental damage and slowing signs of aging. Paired with the powerhouse that is Lavender, Conaturals’ Lavender and Chamomile Daily Essentials Face Wash combines the benefits of both plants to deliver a powerful punch of naturally beneficial ingredients that will leave your skin looking lit from within.
For All Skin Types:
Activated Charcoal is one of the best natural pore cleansing ingredients in the skincare industry and it’s slow rise to popularity only proves it’s effectiveness when it comes to achieving healthy, supple skin. Activated charcoal has been proven to reach deep into your pores to remove toxins and impurities and offers beneficial exfoliation for a smoother, more luminous glow. It effectively cleanses the skin and unclogs pores, without absorbing existing vitamins and nutrients in the skin. As dirt, toxins and heavy metals are attracted to charcoal molecules, Charcoal goes skin deep to draw out all the nasties, leaving your skin renewed and refreshed. Activated charcoal is inert, which means that it doesn't cause allergic reactions nor will it irritate sensitive skin if used correctly. In fact, activated charcoal can be used to help remedy allergic skin reactions so it is suitable and beneficial to any and every skin type. Conaturals’ Activated Charcoal Detox Bar is the perfect gateway into the many benefits of Charcoal. With it’s velvety texture, this chemical free soap is gentle enough to use day and night and can be used as a perfect moisturizing body bar in the shower too!
