What are the benefits of a natural skin care routine?

The skin is our body’s largest organ, forming a protective layer between our internal organs and the outside world. Our skin works hard for us. Its role as protector exposes it to environmental pollutants, sunlight, dirt and other factors every day. A natural skin care routine using high-performing products will help nourish and restore hard-working skin. 
 
Creating your own daily natural skin care routine using products that incorporate natural and organic ingredients is easier than you may think. Here are some of the best natural skin care and beauty tips to get you started that will help your skin look good naturally for longer.

How Effective Is Natural Skin Care?

The beauty and skin care industry has long taken inspiration from the natural world with many natural and organic skin care ingredients now found in products across the skincare spectrum;

  • Vitamin C, for example, is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce blemishes, increases the production of collagen and helps lighten dark spots.
  • Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, is a supercharged anti-aging ingredient that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping and hydrating skin. 

These vitamins and antioxidants are found naturally in products usually found in your kitchen or garden such as almonds, avocado, green tea and aloe vera. The best natural skin care routine takes advantage of the benefits of these naturally occurring ingredients and uses them to heal, protect and nourish your skin.

 


How to create the best natural skin care routine

A simple natural skin care routine that nourishes and supports the skin is important to keep skin healthy and youthful looking - your future self will thank you. The cornerstones of a good facial skin care routine are cleansers, toners and moisturisers. You can build serums, exfoliants and face masks into your routine if needed or desired once you’ve mastered the basics and you’ve found the ingredients that work for you.

Here’s what a simple natural skin routine would look like:
 

Step 1: Cleanse
 
Washing your face is the most basic and essential step in any natural skin care routine. There is a dazzling array of cleansing options, from oils, gels, creams and lotions. What you opt for is down to personal preference and your skin’s needs; the right cleanser for your skin will leave it squeaky clean without stripping it of essential, healthy oils. 
 
A creamy cleanser like NIVEA Naturally Good Milky Face Cleanser digs deep to effectively remove make-up, even stubborn waterproof mascara, while the organic green tea keeps the skin’s natural moisture balance. 
 
Gel cleansers such as NIVEA Naturally Good Micellar Face Wash are easy to use in the shower so are a great no-fuss option. Packed full of aloe vera, it gently yet effectively cleanses your skin. 

Micellar waters are an effective option for a super quick refresh. NIVEA Naturally Good Micellar Water gently cleanses, refreshes and moisturises the skin but is tough enough to remove long lasting make-up, dirt and impurities. Wash your face with your chosen cleanser twice a day, morning and night, to avoid clogged pores, dullness and outbreaks.

Step 2: Tone 
 
A toner sweeps away impurities and some dead skin cells as well as helping your skin absorb the benefits of any products you follow up with, such as serum, moisturiser or sunscreen. Natural toners will help maintain the skin's natural pH balance. 

 

Step 3: Moisturise
 
Hydrating your skin helps disguise the effects of aging by working to sideline dullness and dryness. Day creams such as NIVEA Naturally Good Radiance Day Cream have a lighter formula so they can be worn under make-up, while night creams are designed to give the skin a big hit of hydration while you sleep. NIVEA Naturally Good Face Night Cream contains organic Argan Oil that helps the skin regenerate overnight, leaving it feeling beautifully supple the next morning.
