There is no record of it, but older civilisations supposedly had great skin! While their skin quality was subject to geographical temperatures, but with lesser chemicals and more natural ingredients, their skincare woes were to a far lesser degree than people face today. Skincare has evolved since then, and inarguably, it is going back to its roots. While products with a vast amount of chemicals promise flawless skin, they do more damage than good in the long run. But natural skin care is more efficient in its workings, the results take a long time to be noticed, but they are long-lasting.
Several people have switched to natural products, realising their value, but they may not see remarkable results unless they utilise the products correctly. The skin on the human body may look uniform, but several skin types together form the largest organ in the body. And every kind of skin requires specialised and customised care, which makes choosing and using the right natural products for maximum efficacy.
NATURAL SKINCARE FROM HEAD TO TOE
A range of skincare products extracted or made from natural ingredients, and choosing the right product or the right combination of products is essential in setting a daily skincare routine.
Face and Neck
The face is perhaps the most concentrated part of the body receiving the maximum attention. While there is nothing wrong with that, the rest of the body deserves just as much attention. Skincare products for the face include,
- Face Oil
- Make-Up Remover
- Face Wash
- Face Scrub
- Under-Eye Cream
- Lip Balm
The entire range of facial skincare products is available with 100% natural alternatives. The face skin extends to the top of the torso, and these products also work on these regions. People should choose the product that best matches their skin type (normal, oily, dry or combination) and their geographical climate.
Hands and Legs
When it comes to the skin below the face, the number of product types shrink because these regions are less susceptible to damage due to their epidermal composition. The skincare products for hands and legs include,
- Body Oil
- Body Wash
- Bath Salts
- Body Scrub
- Waxing/Hair Removal Products
The entire range of these products is available with natural alternatives. People can use these products in the torso region as well and gain their benefits. These products usually contain a combination of moisturising and cleansing agents, along with a fragrance.
A common mistake that most people make is to use body products on their feet. These products may help moisturise the feet’s skin to an extent, but for maximum benefits, it is better to opt for foot care products instead. The products for the feet include,
- Foot Cleanser
- Foot Cream/Moisturiser
- Bath Salts
- Nail Oil
All of these products come in natural alternatives. It is essential to include them in one’s daily routine as the feet are full of nerve endings. Regularly massaging the feet has tremendous benefits all over the body and even on internal organs and the mind.
Essential Oils A central component of natural skincare routines is essential oils. There are different essential oils available, and each of them provides overlapping benefits. People have to find the right combination of oils for their skin type and combine them in a suitable carrier oil (if necessary). Regular and proper use of essential oils and other natural skincare products promises extended benefits for healthy, smooth and radiant skin all around.
