Do These 5 Things to Level Up Your Natural Skin Care Routine

For those of us who are constantly wondering how we can improve our health, the quality of our lives, and enhance our experiences in a more natural way – at some point – creating healthier beauty habits will fit into the equation. 

Everything from the things we eat, drink, wear, drive, and as well as the products we use from day to day, lead us to the natural conclusion that natural skin care is a part of this more conscious way of living.

Once you learn the truth about conventional beauty products and their ingredients, it's hard to go back.  It's as true when someone becomes a vegan, or decides drinking alcohol, or quits anything in their life is no longer a healthy fit to help them reach their goals. 

There are so many ingredients included in conventional skin care products that are proven to be unhealthy, especially with prolonged use, but are still accepted by the manufacturing industry. 

It’s a proven fact that certain chemicals can be absorbed through the skin and can cause health issues, but it continues on, the inclusion of these ingredients in the products made by some manufacturers. 

Our Fresh Start Cleansing Cream is an excellent way to step up your natural skin care routine.

The good news is, there are 5 habits we can bring into our lives, that can help us improve our natural skin care routine, and in general, improve our lives immensely.

Stay Hydrated with Water, Tea and/or Coffee:  One of the first habits to you To truly bring quality hydration to your skin, sticking to water, teas, and/or coffee is your best bet.  Sodas are the worst choices, followed by sugary juices that contain added sugar should be last on your list.  Many beverages that are marketed to be good for you instead contain chemical preservatives and high amounts of sucrose that can not only prevent proper hydration, but leave your skin looking dry and worn out. 

Eat Things That are Not in a Box or Bag:  It’s very easy to grab snacks as a way to curb hunger, but unfortunately most snacks come on a box or bag, which typically means they’re processed.   Crackers, chips, trail mix, breakfast bars, even some protein bars, are highly processed with ingredients that can be toxic for your body, brain, and hormones.

Sleep Well, Naturally:  A good night’s sleep that is based on natural, healthy habits, is a solid habit to put into place to make any natural skin care routine look flawless and meaningful.  If you’ve ever missed a good night’s sleep and looked in the mirror, you know exactly what I’m referring to. 

Stay away from getting into the habit of using over the counter sleep medications that can deplete your body of the proper sleep cycle it needs, and can make you feel groggy the next day.  While these options might come in handy once in a while, finding your groove at night to create an optimal sleep environment is worth the work. 

Some suggestions might be minimal screen time, putting your phone on airplane mode or set up a “do not disturb” function, wear soft, comfortable clothing, drink water, lower the lighting, listen to some ASMR or something soothing.  Youtube actually offers a video of 8 blissful hours of oceanic life. 

Give some of those options a try to see if you can sleep naturally all on your own.

Get Moving:  Regular exercise will naturally provide the release of endorphins, and just as importantly, the expulsion of toxins and improvement of circulation.  When you get moving every day, whether it’s a walk, or a jog, or a yoga session, you are helping your body rid itself of toxins, chemicals, and unwanted synthetics. 

Everyone looks and feels better after a brisk walk, and this is a great habit to get into so that you look and feel better.

Simplify and Rebuild Your Routine:  No one is suggesting that you need to immediately break the bank to start a new natural skin care routine.  Perhaps you can first eliminate the products you have on hand that you know contain chemicals and synthetics.  Then, step by step, rebuild your collection.  Start with a cleanser.  Then an everyday moisturizer, then a treatment or two, perhaps a mask or scrub to do once a week, and so on.  Our prices make our products attainable by everyone, and it helps make your life easier with free shipping in the US.
