5 natural products that are safe for your skin

Have you been looking for natural products to include in your skincare routine? Perhaps you are transitioning into a natural skincare routine and just need some basics to help you get started? If that is so, you have come to the right place. In this blog post, I’m going to list 5 natural products that are safe for you to use on your skin.

This is going to be a very short post, so enjoy!

1. Honey

Who does love honey? It is safe to use in masks as long as you are using raw honey or manuka honey. Did you know, honey manufacturers tend to add lots of additives to their products so rather opt for raw organic honey that is locally produced or manuka honey, which is amazing because it actually has many medicinal benefits. Manuka honey is a bit more pricey but worth the money.

2. Aloe Vera

This is also an amazingly safe natural skincare ingredient. Aloe is a humectant so it is going to bind moisture into the skin. Aloe does NOT help with dark marks and pigmentation, no matter how consistently you use it. It is only a humectant which means it acts as a moisturizer!

3. Oatmeal

This is another amazing ingredient and it can be used to treat inflamed skin, irritated skin, and eczema. It is recommended for sensitive, allergy, or eczema-prone skin because it is an excellent moisturiser with skin healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and itch relieving benefits.

4. Charcoal /Activated Charcoal

Charcoal and activated charcoal is a very effective ingredient for absorbing toxins, bacteria, and oils from your skin. So you can keep using your charcoal masks. Just be sure to stay away from those peel-off charcoal masks – I’m talking about those masks that literally stick to your skin like glue, make sure you avoid those.

5. NaturalĀ  Oils

I have a blog post up on various oils that are skincare-safe so I will link it HERE. When you are using natural oils, make sure you do your research on their properties first and that you are diluting them with a carrier oil such as almond oil, marula oil, rosehip oil, and sunflower oil – carrier oils like these.
