With rows and rows of skincare products on the market, it can be extremely overwhelming to know what ingredients to look for in a product. So many products are overloaded with harmful chemical ingredients that can make your skin look and feel unhealthy. Luckily for you, we are here to help alleviate some of that stress and educate you on what you should really be putting on your skin.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the most versatile products on the market. Not only can it be used in cooking, but it can also be used on your hair and skin. Coconut oil can be used to cleanse, moisturize, remove make-up, and prevent razor burn. It contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial for your skin. It is also a great source of healthy fats that can help nourish your gut and increase immune functionability.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree is commonly used as a natural way to help fight breakouts and acne. Many acne products have high concentrations of alcohol in them, which not only dries out the skin but it also weakens the skin. Many people find alcohol to be too harsh of an ingredient, so if you have sensitive skin, tea tree oil is a great alternative. This oil works as a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal.

Lemon Essential Oil

Similarly, lemon essential oil is a great way to help treat breakouts. It works as a strong antibacterial that can reduce dangerous bacteria strains, which can cause breakouts if these bacteria get stuck in the skin’s pores. It is also a great way to help brighten the skin and help fade scars or other areas of hyperpigmentation. Lemon essential oil can be used as a toner to help combat oily skin and fight wrinkles.

Argan Oil

Argan oil has been used for generations in Morocco and has recently migrated its way into American skincare products. It’s a popular ingredient due to its rich content of vitamin A, vitamin E, various antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. Argan oil helps gently moisturize the skin. It can help treat irritations from acne, bug bites, eczema, and psoriasis.

Sea Salt

Sea salt is naturally loaded with tons of minerals and nutrients like magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium which has been absorbed from sea water. Our skin tends to have many of these same minerals and nutrients which makes sea salt a great way to help balance, protect, and restore the skin. Sea salt can also be used as an exfoliant when mixed with other ingredients like coconut oil or other essential oils. Exfoliating your skin with sea salt can help calm breakouts, remove dead skin cells, and balance oil production.
