Natural skincare ingredients THAT WORK! Excitement! Natural skincare has been ‘around the block’ and back again, by that I mean, we have been doing it for YONKS! Like waaaaaaay back in history, people were bathing in milk (lactic acid), using fruits to brighten their faces (glycolic acid) and bathing in oats to soothe crazy irritated skin (beta-glucan). We KNEW things worked before we even knew WHY they worked – we are just clever like that *wink wink*. Here are 5 awesome naturals that are PROVEN to ‘do their thing’ awesomely and naturally.

1. HEMP SEED OIL

Cannabis! That is something we know has ‘AN’ effect ‘ey! Well there is more to this plant than ‘THAT’ cough cough ‘medicinal’ effect. The Hemp plant also makes a lovely green oil from its seeds. This oil is HIGH in Omegas 3 and 6, these are ‘essential’ fatty acids that our body cannot make itself, it needs to be GIVEN them!

If skin has ONE goal in life, it is to be your ELITE protection from the world! One of the pretty important jobs it has is to STOP you drying out. Imagine the LAST orange left in the fruit bowl, the one that’s shrunk a bit, gotten wrinkles (how did that happen?) and is no longer tangy for your taste buds. Well skin, stops us drying up into a ‘shrivelled’ orange! One of the 3 MOST important ingredients in your skin barrier are fatty acids, they are skin-identical, skin lovers!

Omega 3 and 6 oils help to keep that skin barrier in tip-top, ready to face the world at ANY time condition! Keeping that skin barrier in its most awesome condition means skin will be more elastic, younger looking (fights aging!), more supple, dewy and just the MOST spectacular version of itself! Good skin that ages WELL is all about keeping skin protected and keeping moisture IN. That means the BEST way to stop skin aging, is to HELP that barrier! #PreventionIsBetterThanTreatment

It was Hemp seed oil that was first found to be mega-awesome at treating DRY skin conditions like Eczema. Turns out, there are a load of other oils SUPER high in these Omega 3 and 6 skin identical lovers.

2. OATS, YUP THE PORRIDGE KIND!

Oats are awesome my friend! Oats are an awesome example of natural skincare ingredients that work! If you only eat them right now, then it’s time to un-pack them from that thought space of ‘food’ and start to wiggle them over to ‘skincare’! The oats in your skincare are special, they are SUPER small, they are like ‘The Borrowers’ version of oatmeal! When you make porridge you use the whole flake, it’s BIG right! Here is the special thing with oats, they have a lotta active yummy stuff in them for skin. If you sprinkle oat flakes onto your face, they ain’t staying there for long! Here comes the magic, oatmeal in skincare works because it’s ground down to a super find powder that makes the ‘ACITVE’ part more available to your skin. #Horray

Oats balance your skin pH, activate your skin to start being ‘healthier’, protect with anti-oxidant yummies AND soothe away any skin irritation. Get a read of the ‘4 skin loving reasons you need oats in your skincare’ to feast your eyes on all their goodness!

What are Oats SUPER awesome for? Dry Skin, Irritated skin, Sensitive skin, Aging skin.

Oats have something scientifically super exciting with a ‘less exciting’ name, they have their very own ‘Monograph‘ as a ‘skin protectant’. Think of a monograph like a HUGE book on all the awesome things that something can do, ‘this is your life’ kinda thing. It means that it is KNOWN that oats have PROVEN benefits and this is like a little award ceremony for the humble oat!

Natural Skincare Ingredients That Work: Oatmeal, known as Avena Sativa Kernel Flour on your ingredients list!

3. ZINC

Zinc.. a natural skincare ingredient that works… hmm! Isn’t that a metal? You are absolutely RIGHT! The skincare version is a different ‘form’ of that metal that makes it skincare friendly. Zinc is naturally found ALL around us, it is in the earth, in our foods, even in water! Phew there’s a hell lotta Zinc out there! We don’t see HUGE zinc logs floating down our streams and being filtered out of our tap water because it is a ‘TRACE’ amount. Like tiny tiny, and that is ALL you need.

Zinc HELPS your skin to HEAL and also helps to control skin that makes a lot of oil (sebum – your protective skin layer!). There are lots of other awesome things it does, but these are the MAIN reasons why you’d shout ‘pass me that zinc cream NOW’!

What Zinc is SUPER awesome for? Oily and Spot prone skin types.

Suffer from acne OR using a retinol (vitamin A) cream for anti-aging? Zinc and Vitamin A are best buds! They do awesome things alone, but they work SUPER powers together. If your skin is suffering one of these 2 things, its likely deficient in one of these 2!

Natural Skincare Ingredients That Work: Zinc, you’ll find it called Zinc oxide, Zinc PCA, or Zinc (then a trusty tag along name here!).

4. ALLANTOIN

Some ‘natural’ stuff doesn’t sound very ‘English’ FRIENDLY ‘ey! Well ‘Alan’ (aka Allantoin, but ya know, we will call him Allan for short!), is naturally found in the roots of the Comfrey herb. Comfrey has some awesome skin healing powers, and those powers are ALL due to Alan! This is the special ‘active’ ingredient that is super skin soothing, skin healing, moisturising, AND skin-regenerating. Phew!

What Allantoin is SUPER awesome for? Really, truly ALL skin types, but crazy-super awesome for sensitive, easily irritated skin.

Most Allantoin used in skincare is a ‘nature identical’ version which is made by our fair hands! That’s because Comfrey has some other stuff in there that isn’t so nice to skin, or just to your body in general!

5. BISABOLOL

With a TON of natural ingredients out there, I BET you heard WAY more about some than others. It’s the ‘old wives’ tales that turn out to be TRUE once science catches up with what we already knew! Bisabolol is one of those, and because it is sneaky-sneaky, you might not recognise that this guy is CHAMOMILE!!

Bisabolol is the ‘active’ part of chamomile that is responsible for all those skin soothing, skin calming rumours! It is anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant. It ALSO helps whatever else is with it to naturally ‘sink’ into your skin which means NO greasy skin feeling AND that cream gets to ‘do its thang!’.

What Bisabolol is SUPER awesome for? Any skin type and ALSO super good for sensitive, irritated or spot prone skin!

This is a natural you do NOT need a lot of, it can be active in your skincare in concentrations under 1%. Bisabolol is super concentrated and super practised at working its magic! This means you’ll find it on the bottom of your skincare ingredients list. Making it super easy to find, just scan your eyes to the last few ingredients! #Sorted
