Top 5 Natural Skincare Products
by Kristin Stephens, MS, NTP
I’ve been taking care of my skin naturally for years. And it’s much cheaper than you’d expect! Today I’m sharing my favorite natural skincare products which are easy to find and easy to use.
The skincare and personal care products available to us have many chemicals which can cause adverse reactions and responses in the body. Although there are several truly natural skincare companies out there, I personally like to use a few inexpensive items for my basic daily care. See below for my top 5!
- Coconut Oil – honestly, what can’t this oil do? It’s a great moisturizer, makeup remover, and even a nourishing hair mask. My favorite way to use it for my face is the Oil Cleansing Method.
- Witch Hazel – this natural astringent has so many uses. From bug bites, to acne, to bruises, this is an all-around great product to have on hand. Use it as a toner after you wash your face, or as a pre-clean before you jump in the shower.
- Baking Soda – this little powerhouse does great stuff for your skin and hair. Mix a very small amount with water and use it as a gentle exfoliator on your face or body. Mix one tablespoon of baking soda with 8oz water for a DIY shampoo.
- Apple Cider Vinegar – Use this as a DIY conditioner after shampooing with baking soda (mix one tablespoon with 8oz water), or use it as a toner for acne-prone skin.
- Liquid Castile Soap – this gentle soap can be used with coconut milk to make shampoo, or it can be used on its own as a body wash. The bar version is a great alternative to conventional soap bars which contain harmful ingredients.
