Having a natural skin care routine is essential for maintaining healthy, glowing skin. Natural skincare routines (along with healthy lifestyle choices) help nourish and repair combination skin for a flawless look. Switching to gentle, natural skincare options often goes a long way to eliminating excess oil production. The first step in any natural skin care routine is to wash your face with natural cleansers.
It is necessary to clean the pores to remove dirt, but it is important not to remove all natural oils. This step must be done every morning and every evening. Gently apply a cleanser to your face in a circular motion. I found this post while researching natural skin care and have started to incorporate “simple ingredients” into my routine. Many of my homemade natural skin care recipes are based on coconut oil, but if it doesn't work for your skin type, sometimes you can swap it for another oil (such as the carrier oils mentioned above depending on your skin type).The skin naturally produces oil, called sebum, which protects it from moisture loss, but everyday actions, such as forgetting to put on a moisturizer or washing your hands with a drying soap, can remove these natural oils. To keep your skin healthy and hydrated, it is important to replenish the lost oils.
After cleansing your face, use a toner to balance the pH of your skin and then apply a moisturizer. You can also use natural oils such as jojoba oil or almond oil as a moisturizer. Additionally, you can use natural ingredients such as honey or aloe vera as masks or scrubs. Finally, make sure you are drinking enough water and eating healthy foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. This will help keep your skin looking its best.
