The Ultimate Guide to a Natural Skincare Routine
Putting together a natural skincare routine that suits your needs can seem like a daunting task at first, especially if you’re going from only using soap and water to using five different products.
To make it easier for you, we’ve put together this ultimate guide that has ALL the info you need to build your routine using natural ingredients. But of course, if you need further instruction, tips, or product recommendations, please contact us!
Step 1: Remove Your Makeup
Whether you’ve had a long day at work or only put on a bit of concealer and mascara to look more awake, you need to take off your makeup - no excuses!
Step 2: Cleanse
The most basic step, but one of the most important! After removing makeup, use a cleanser to remove dirt, excess oils, any residual makeup, and pollutants.
Step 2.5: Exfoliate
We’re making Exfoliating Step 2.5 because this step should only be added to your routine about 1-2 times a week.
Our Micro Exfoliator is super gentle and contains chamomile, calendula, and rose clay which all have anti-inflammatory properties.
Exfoliating with acne-prone skin: If you have acne, you should gently exfoliate more than usual so that the skin can be smoothed and softened (about 2-3 times/week).
Exfoliating will help to reduce future breakouts by clearing out the sebum and dead skin cells in the pores. If you notice your skin is becoming more inflamed, or you see more acne, reduce to 1-2 times per week and remember not to scrub too hard!
Step 3: Face Mask
About 1-2 times a week, it’s good to do a Face Mask to reset the skin, hydrate it, and target specific concerns.
Step 4: Tone
Toning is extremely important and should never be skipped! The main purpose of a toner is to rebalance the skin’s pH after it’s been through cleansing and masking. Ideally, the skin should be at a pH between 4.5 and 5.5.
Step 5: Specialized Products
Sometimes there are problem areas in your complexion that you want to hyper-target with specific ingredients.
Step 6: Moisturize
One of the most important steps of your routine is replenishing moisture to your face. Now, there are many different combos of products you can use to find your perfect moisture balance.
Let’s start with a base moisturizer.
Now if you feel like you need extra moisture or want to add extra nutrients to your skin, add a few drops of Serum. Serums reach to even deeper levels of the skin than moisturizers.
Naturally Clean Skin
Now you have the knowledge and tools you need to build your perfect natural skincare routine! Again, you do not have to include every step, as long as you always remove your makeup, cleanse, tone, and moisturize.
To see results, it’s all about consistency and longevity in your skincare routine. The longer you stick to it and the more dedicated you are to pampering your skin every night and morning, the more likely you are to see the results you’re looking for!
