Your All-Natural Morning and Night Skincare Routine for Glowing Skin
As people around the world are looking to be more conscious in their choices and the importance of Ayurveda in the health, beauty, and wellness industry is growing, natural face care products are gaining all the attention! Beauty bloggers are swearing by the benefits, and many skincare brands are keen to launch a range of authentic ayurvedic skincare products.
What are natural skin care products, and are they worth the buzz?
Natural face care products are cosmetics and creams made of simple, naturally available ingredients. They are free of or have a negligible amount of chemicals and are usually cruelty-free.
However, they are not to be confused with organic products. For example, an organic face moisturizer or an organic serum is made of ingredients that have been organically produced and are free of pesticides.
Whether natural products are worth the hype or not is one’s discretion. However, they do offer many benefits and are better for your skin than regular products made of strong ingredients and harmful chemicals.
Some benefits of natural skin care products include-
- They are gentle on the skin.
- They are environmentally friendly.
- They do not have a toxic odour.
- They are cruelty-free.
Like any other skincare product, natural face care products work best when they are used as part of a skincare routine along with other facial care beauty products.
We have listed below a morning and night skincare routine for you, including the best natural moisturizer for dry skin, a natural serum, night cream, etc.
Morning Skincare Routine:
A new day is a new beginning for you and your skin. So, while we consume a good meal and ready ourselves for the day ahead with a cup of coffee, our skin needs its fair dose of boosters and energizers.
A morning skincare routine usually consists of-
An all-natural facial cleanser like Nourish Mantra’s Green Tree Tatva Scrub Cleanser is made of beneficial ingredients like Aloe Vera, Green Tea Extracts, Niacinamide, etc. It rejuvenates the skin, hydrates it, and effectively eliminates all the dirt trapped in the pores.
A toner essentially hydrates the skin and restores its pH balance. Natural toners are gentle on the skin and work wonders in helping you achieve fresh, dewy skin. Buy a natural toner online or make one for yourself at home. Did you know that rose water and green tea are great toners for the skin? You can store them in a bottle and refrigerate them to keep them cool.
Although essential oils have been around for a long time, it is not until Ayurveda gained popularity that they are being used religiously as part of a skincare routine. Essential oils are your best bet at delivering desired ingredients directly to the skin for best results. You can choose a serum or essential oil that works best for you based on your skin type and the skin condition that you want to target. For instance, tree tea oil works best on skin breakouts, while Lavender oil helps soothe the skin and reduce inflammation.
Skin comes in many types, and so do moisturizers. A moisturizer helps nourish the skin, improve the texture, hydrate it while keeping it soft and supple. Opt for a gel-based or lightweight natural moisturizer for oily skin prone to acne breakouts, or pick a deeply nourishing moisturizer if you are battling dry skin problems.
This is an absolute must if you are stepping out of the house. Sunscreen acts as a shield between the harmful UV rays from the sun and the skin, and not using sunscreen will damage your skin.
It is suggested that you use sunscreen 30 mins before leaving the house and always use it before applying any makeup.
Night Skincare Routine:
A nighttime skincare routine is as important as its morning counterpart or maybe even more. Our skin can repair itself as we sleep, and it is always ideal to assist it by using natural skin care products for glowing skin.
Like we always say, sleeping with makeup on is a skincare sin! You may skip the skincare routine for a day or two but never hit the bed without getting rid of that makeup. Doing so will clog your pores, and the chemicals in the products will damage your skin leading to premature ageing, dark patches, as well as acne. Instead, use a makeup remover or baby oil to wipe off any makeup gently.
Wash your face using a cleanser or a scrub to get rid of the dirt, oil, and dead cells on your skin. Make sure you use a natural one with a cooling effect on the skin and a calming aroma like Nourish Mantra’s Cucumber Mint Upvan Facial Cleanser.
Using a serum or essential oil before bed is a personal choice. Some use Lavender essential oil to calm the senses and soothe the skin as they sleep, while others believe that keeping the products as minimal as possible at night is a safe bet.
Finish off your night skincare routine using a natural night cream. Night creams are the magic products that help your skin in repairing itself. Depending on the product you choose, they offer various benefits such as glowing skin, youthful-looking skin, acne-free skin, etc.
Consistency is the key with natural face care products. You may not see any results overnight, but regular use will greatly benefit you and the environment.
