Clean beauty ingredients you need to know about
The main ingredients to look out for are things that make up the base of natural face masks:.
NATURAL CLAYS such as bentonite or kaolin clay- this acts as a mild exfoliant and reduces excess oils
NATURAL OILS like glycerin, sweet almond, coconut oil, jojoba oil - as these oils provide hydration and reduce any drying out of the skin
NATURAL PRESERVATIVES like vitamin E - as these are less harmful to your skin and the environment and help preserve your products
If your product contains essential oils ensure that there is a carrier oil like sweet almond oil, coconut oil, or jojoba oil as this helps evenly allow the essential oils to be absorbed into your skin, it reduces the rate at which your skin soaks up the oils meaning that it helps create lasting effects from the essential oil and it reduces any burning or skin reactions to some of the stronger essential oils.
What Should You Use For Your Skin Type?
OILY SKIN: look for products containing oatmeal, clays such as charcoal, and lemon oils.
DRY SKIN: look out for products packed full with natural oils like jojoba oil, coconut oil and sweet almond oil, Honey, aloe vera, and lavender and rose essential oils.
NORMAL TO COMBINATION SKIN: look for products made with rose oil, rose water, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, and avocado.
ACNE PRONE SKIN: now this is a hard one, I recommend if you suffer from severe acne to take a visit to your dermatologist as there can be many causes to sever acne and scaring. But focus on ingredients like salic acid, tea tree oil, aloe vera and green tea.
Natural FACE MASKS for your skin type
Lavender mask which helps soothe skin and reduce inflammation as well as helps reduce acne, blemishes and scaring. This mask is best for those with sensitive oily skin as it helps combat dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis and leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated, soft, and cleansed.
Rose & Collagen mask
Rose and collagen mask which aids in the hydration of the skin, reduces acne, reduces signs of aging, minimizes the appearance of scars as well as improves skin elasticity and increases blood flow giving a more youthful glow. Best for normal to dry skin
Charcoal, lemon and tea tree mask
Charcoal, lemon and tea tree mask is a deep cleansing and nourishing mask. It exfoliates and removes dead skin cells whilst combating acne, dark spots, and draws out bacteria and toxins from the skin. This is best for normal to oily skin
