Natural Ingredients for Your Skincare Routine
You may have heard of natural skin care products, but what exactly does this mean? In this article, Bio-Oil explains how to keep your skin healthy by acing the basics and adopting a natural skin care routine. By combining lifestyle choices and skincare products, you can help your skin look and feel its best.
The Benefits of Natural Skincare
Natural ingredients and plant oils can help restore skin health, with minimal irritation.
Here are the main benefits of natural skincare products.
A powerful ingredient combination
Plant oils have been recognised for their benefits in restoring and maintaining skin health. When incorporated into skincare routine, these oils can act together to help bring out the best in your skin.
The blend of plant oils and vitamin-rich ingredients can help maintain the skin barrier to minimise loss of water. The result? Increased hydration and overall improvement in skin appearance.
Most natural beauty products manufacturers use packaging solutions with minimal environmental footprint.
Natural plant oils
Some plant oils can make your skin feel soft and smooth, as well as providing anti-skin ageing benefits. Bio-Oil Skincare Oil Natural is formulated with plant oils including soybean oil, sunflower seed oil, and safflower seed oil. These ingredients play a significant role in the skin’s barrier function, appearance, and structural integrity.
Tips for a Natural Skincare Routine
While everyone has different skin concerns, here are a few important tips that you can take on board to achieve radiant skin naturally.
#1 Identify your skin type
Before choosing your ideal skincare routine, it’s essential to identify your skin type. This will help you choose a product with the right ingredients for you, to avoid aggravating existing conditions or causing new ones.
Bear in mind that acne prone skin requires non-comedogenic products. If you’re not 100 percent sure about your skin type, it’s worth visiting a dermatologist to confirm.
#2 Identify your skin sensitivity
People may have local reactions to the chemicals, dyes, and fragrances in some products. Different skins need different care levels: it’s important to find a routine that’s compatible with your skin type.
#3 Improve your nutrition
Modern science has proven that imbalanced nutrition and poor eating habits can contribute to skin ageing. For healthy skin, a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables can be crucial.
#4 Increase water intake
Water keeps your body hydrated, maintains skin elasticity, and reduces signs of dryness and roughness.
#5 Choose a cleanser
Washing your face with a cleanser helps your skin stay clean and free from oil, makeup, and impurities. It’s recommended to wash the face twice daily, with a mild cleanser.
#6 Exfoliate for a vibrant glow
Exfoliation can give your face an instant glow, by eliminating dead skin cells and allowing your other products to better penetrate your skin.
If you have dry or sensitive skin, you may only need a mild chemical exfoliator and washcloth. There are two main methods of exfoliation: mechanical and chemical.
- Mechanical exfoliation involves using brushes or scrubs to manually remove dead skin cells.
- Chemical exfoliation uses particular acids, to gently dissolve dead skin cells.
The frequency of exfoliation will depend on your skin type, as well as the intensity of your chosen method. Over-exfoliation can result in redness and irritation.
#7 Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
At the core of a solid skin care routine is a quality moisturiser. Moisturisers help improve skin hydration and prevent water loss.
Bio-Oil® Skincare Oil Natural, for instance, is an emollient and moisturiser formulated with ingredients like chamomile oil, jojoba seed oil, and rosehip oil to help your skin look radiant and youthful looking. The 100% natural formulation of Bio-Oil® Skincare Oil Natural is light, fast-absorbing, non-comedogenic, and appropriate for sensitive skin.
Whether you’re dealing with stretch marks, with a scar, with uneven skin tone, or you simply want to smooth ageing and dehydrated skin, Bio-Oil Skincare Oil Natural is an affordable and effective product that will help you protect and nourish your skin naturally.
#8 Protect yourself from the sun
Sunlight has proven health benefits, but sun overexposure can cause wrinkles and irregular pigmentation.
Whether you’re brand-new to the idea of a natural skin care routine or you’ve already implemented some of these tips, don’t be discouraged if you don’t see results right away. Be consistent, give new products time to work, and let your skin glow!
