Creating a natural skincare routine does not means grabbing the first product you find on a drug store shelf and applying it every day. If you go down this path, you could end up using an exfoliant with beads instead of a cleanser every day, or lose out on the benefits provided by skin toners. So, it is vital that you know how to identify the best natural skincare products for your skin type. Also, you should understand the sequence in which to apply them, to get the most benefits. As natural products flood onto the Internet and into your local drugstore, keep reading to find how I use them to create a skincare routine.
Find what type of skin you have
The first step of a skincare routine is finding out your skin type. So, check if you have oily skin, dry skin, combination skin or sensitive skin. Once you find your skin type you can easily select the products that are best for it.
Understand the problems on your skin
Even if you have dry skin just like your office colleague who is of the same age, you could notice different problems on your skin. Problems that people often notice on their skin include large pores, acne, signs of premature aging, or excessive oil production during the summer.
Check which natural ingredients work for you
If you have been using a lemon based toner or a DIY cleanser created with honey for your skin, don’t worry, you can continue getting the same benefits if you buy natural products. The products created with natural and plant-based ingredients are much more potent that homemade cleansers, toners, and masks.
Look for products that are free of parabens and chemicals
Investing in natural products that do not contain harmful chemicals and parabens will allow your skin to reap the benefits of the ingredients without breaking out in a rash. Additionally, such paraben/chemical free products do not pollute the environment when you wash them off your face.
Pick the products to be included in a skincare routine
Spending time and effort to find the right natural products for your skincare routine is something that cannot be avoided. Importantly, don’t make the mistake of thinking that a popular or costlier brand is better than its competitors.
Apply skincare products in the right sequence
Before you start using products as part of a skincare routine, you need to know the correct sequence to apply them. Using the correct sequence will ensure that your skin gets the most benefits from each product whether it is an exfoliant, cleanser, or moisturizer. Additionally, some products should never be applied when heading outdoors while others should only be used once or twice per week. So, keep reading to find the steps for using skincare products.
Step 1) Cleansers (daily in the morning and evening)
Step 2) Toners (daily in the morning and evening)
Step 3) Eye creams (daily in the morning and evening)
Step 4) Serums (daily in the morning and evening) or masks (once or twice a week)
Step 5) Blemish/spot treatments (daily in the morning and evening)
Step 6) Moisturizers (daily in the morning and evening)
Step 7) Oil in the morning/Retinol in the evening (daily)
Step 8) Sunscreen in the morning (daily)
Don’t forget to use an exfoliant with a scrubbing agent such as beads twice or thrice per week, while an exfoliator with glycolic acid can be used daily depending on the strength of the formulation.
Natural products to include in your skincare routine
With the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Wheat Cleanser that is suitable for all types of skin, you can remove dirt, excess oil, and pollutants. I recommend that people, who use a lot of makeup during the day, apply the cleanser twice in the evening. Ingredients such as coconut and sunflower oil in the cleanser ensure that it does not dry out your skin.
Using the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Hydrating Seaweed Toner you can restore the normal pH balance of the skin. This toner with seaweed extract soothes irritation and helps prepare the skin so that serums or nourishing oil soak in properly.
Applying the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Age Defying Eye Cream at this stage will protect the sensitive skin under your eyes from damage caused by ingredients that are contained in masks. The cream is a vital element in a natural skin care routine as it specifically formulated for the area around the eye. It also helps brighten dark circles, smoothes lines and wrinkles, and reduce puffiness around the eyes.
Savarnas Mantra® Natural Revitalizing Mask has a sophisticated combination of seaweed, copper, and hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in the mask delivers a potent dose of hydration while the plant-based ingredients nourish the skin. The mask can be used once or twice per week as part of a natural skincare routine for mature skin, and kept on for twenty minutes to revitalize it and combat signs of aging.
Including the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Red Tea Anti-oxidant Serum that contains Rooibos extract, in your skincare routine will help heal signs of aging and combat the action of free radicals. The serum is a concentrated formula and only few drops of it need to be applied to the skin of the face, neck to brighten it.
Created with a combination of Glycolic Acid, Witch Hazel extract and Salicylic Acid, the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Blemish Treatment helps combat unattractive pimples and acne. It ensures that blemishes do not linger on your skin and heals them faster.
The Savarnas Mantra® Natural Ultimate Nourishing Hyaluronic Moisturizer is a lightweight formulation. The main ingredient Hyaluronic Acid absorbs moisture from the atmosphere and surrounding layers into the skin to keep it hydrated for hours. It also contains oil extracted from Jojoba Seed and apricot kernel, along with Squalane derived from olives and they combine to create a protective layer that keeps hydration locked in the skin. Using it twice daily in a natural skincare routine for oily skin will keep it from producing excess oil in the summer and prevent it from drying out in the winter.
Removing dead skin cells with the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Fruit Exfoliant once or twice every week is important. Exfoliating prevents dead skin cells from clogging pores and creating infections and acne.
Natural skincare products are continually improving and are increasingly popular, as they are hypoallergenic. Savarnas Mantra® uses cutting edge technology and 5,000-year-old wisdom derived from the Ayurvedic system to create its products.
