10 OF THE BEST NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
Best natural exfoliators…
Kosmea Daily Facial Exfoliant
Gentle, yet oh-so-effective, this exfoliator utilises chamomile flowers and their mild antibacterial properties, rosehips and their antioxidants, and kaolin clay and its detoxifying action to give you smooth, soft skin.
Aum Cell Renewal Facial Exfoliant
Jam-packed full of natural ingredients like elderflower, chamomile, argiletz clay minerals and acai, this soft powder gently exfoliates the skin without causing irritation. The dry formula also allows you to switch up the level of your exfoliation, depending on your skin’s current needs.
Best natural facial oils…
People for Plants Argan, Pomegranate & Milk Thistle Face Oil
This goodie is 97 per cent certified organic, and contains a number of ingredients to help stimulate collagen and elastin production, strengthen the skin and minimise fine lines and wrinkles. But which are our favourite skin-loving components? It has to be the rosemary, calendula and pomegranate.
APIVITA Wine Elixir Anti-Wrinkle & Restoring Face Oil
An aged wine is a wonderful thing, but an aged face? Maybe not so much. This organic face oil utilises the anti-ageing properties of grape oil to help reduce wrinkles while also firming the skin. It’s packed full of olive, sunflower and almond oils too, which not only provide moisturisation, but antioxidant protection as well.
Best natural moisturisers…
Neal's Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm ($73.95, ï¿¼02 8399 0122)
When your skin is thirsty, this is the pot to reach for. Despite being used as a rich cleanser or gentle exfoliant, its real talent is hydrating dry or dehydrated skin. Its high levels of wild rosehip oil help repair, firm and smooth the skin, and the geranium, starflower, hemp and rosemary seed oil leave the skin looking – and feeling – wonderfully radiant.
The Jojoba Company Intense Overnight Renewal Cream ($52.95, 02 9651 3030)
The pure jojoba – alongside vitamin E, CoQ10, argan oil and green tea – in this divine restorative cream does two things: protects the skin from the drying effects of the environment, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles by plumping and nourishing the complexion.
Best natural spot treatments…
Burt’s Bees Anti-Blemish Targeted Spot Treatment
When spots pops up, you want them to disappear – fast. But you also want to use targeted pimple products that don’t leave dry skin behind once said zits have healed. This natural treatment reduces the appearance of blemishes thanks to its salicylic acid, parsley leaf extract and tea tree oil, while also soothing the skin and reducing redness, so you’re left with clear, happy skin.
anumi Purify Blemish Treatment
Using a killer team of natural ingredients to fight pimples (read: organic lemon myrtle, calendula and witch hazel), this gentle yet effective product also helps minimise excessive oil production to help prevent future breakouts.
Best natural body cleansers…
Yes To Tomatoes Terrific Day Shower Gel
Bathing in tomatoes sounds a little dirty in theory, but not when it comes to this sensation body wash. Taking vitamin A and vitamin C from the humble tomato and other organic fruits and vegetables, this shower gel soothes the skin as it cleanses.
Suigo Loofah Body Bars
Love to indulge in a little body exfoliation during your morning shower? These brightly-coloured exfoliating body bars rid your body of dead skin cells, while also nourishing your skin with plant essential oil, Thailand palm oil, olive oil and vitamin E. Oh, and thanks to their red pomegranate and rose or lemon infusions, they smell delicious as well.
