When it comes to choosing natural products it can get super overwhelming. We all want to do good for our health and our skin, but where do we start? Ingredients play a massive role in the products we choose and how effective the formulation of a product is. I get asked often what my favorite Ingredients are, so I decided to write a blog on my all-time favorite natural ingredients to look for in skincare products. Keep in mind there are many amazing ingredients out there and to narrow it down was hard...so there might be a part 2 coming up lol!
Here are Our Top 10 Natural Ingredients:
1.Rosehip Oil. Currently included in my skincare routine is rosehip oil. This powerful ingredient comes from the seeds of rose hips. It's a natural ingredient containing essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and an impressive array of vitamins, including vitamin A, which the skin adores. It hydrates, protects, and rejuvenates the skin. #winning
2.Vitamin C. This ingredient comes in hot as a skincare must have in 2019. When added to your daily routine, vitamin C provides a range of benefits, from evening out your skin tone, shielding skin from the visible impacts of pollution, significantly improving hydration, and keeping your skin looking younger, longer! Out of the many beneficial forms of vitamin C, ascorbic acid is a superstar for its proven antioxidant properties that boost firmer-feeling skin. This powerhouse ingredient is backed by research for dramatically brightening and evening skin tone.
3.Green Coffee Bean (Coffea Arabica). Most people think of coffee scrub for the body when coffee is mentioned in the beauty world, but it goes beyond that! Anti-inflammatory, caffeine-rich coffee de-puffs while increasing circulation to brighten dark circles and plump lines around the eyes and lips. My all time fav eye cream has green coffee bean as its all-star ingredient. My favorite part about this ingredient is that you almost always see results within 10-20 minutes due to its ability to build circulation where it's applied.
4.Carrot. It's funny the last serum I used and my current serum both contain carrot oil! I'm falling madly in love with this oil not only because it adds a glow and some color to the skin, but it also protects the skin from harmful rays! It's also said to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and scars. #carrotoilforlife
5.Chlorophyll.We take this ingredient both internally and externally in our lotion! Chlorophyll helps to remove toxins that have built up in your cells over time and also helps nourish your 'hungry' cells with trace minerals which are essential for skin to thrive, not just survive. -Graydon Skincare
6.Hyaluronic Acid. I'm pretty sure hyaluronic acid was the ingredient of 2018 and it's not going anywhere! HA is found in almost every cell in the body, and roughly 50% of it is located in our skin tissue, keeping our complexions smooth and maintaining the strength of our skin’s barrier by working in tandem withcollagen. Here’s how it works: collagen is essentially the glue that keeps our skin’s structure firm and youthful, while HA keeps the collagen itself nourished and hydrated. Because our natural supply decreases as we age, skin care products containing HA help retain the skin’s elasticity by binding to water and “filling in the gaps,” so to speak. - Mun Skincare
7. Tumeric.Tumeric is another ingredient we use internally and externally. I gotta put it out there though... when handling this ingredient wash your hands after or wake up to yellow nails...I've been there! With its beautiful yellow color turmeric has been used as a skincare treatment in India for centuries thanks to its antioxidant, anti-bacterial, and potent anti-inflammatory properties. That means it'll soothe irritation, fight off acne, and keep wrinkles at bay. It also stimulates blood flow, which can bring life back into dull, tired skin.
8.Vitamin E. Vitamin E plays a crucial role in protecting skin cells and membranes from environmental damage. This protection extends to stopping damage to the skin from UV rays and pollutants. It is also a natural preservative that helps sustain the shelf life of products. You'll be sure to find vitamin e in many products on the market today.
9.Clay. Clay is an ingredient I couldn't live without! From spot treatments to face masks... clay is ALWAYS in my weekly line up. It's the perfect ingredient to pull toxins and dirt from the pores, calm the skin and reduce inflammation. There's an array of clays out there but my favs are pink clay, kaolin, and bentonite.
10.Aloe Vera. I always see aloe vera among one of the first ingredients in many natural products on the market, and that's because it's effective and works well with many other ingredients. In each drop, you’ll find infection-fighting agents, skin-healing salicylic acid, and Vitamins a, c, and e (some of the best antioxidants around). Acne can be tough to get rid of, but aloe vera contains a pair of hormones that gives you a fighting chance. These hormones, Auxin and Gibberellin, help wounds heal and reduce skin inflammation. Gibberellin, in particular, helps stimulate new cell growth. The result is skin that heals quickly with little scarring. This can be a huge help as your body heals from acne.
