We all know and love the avocado for its renowned health benefits when included in a daily diet, but did you know that this superfood is also perfect to apply topically to the skin too? The antioxidants in avocados are said to reduce the appearance of wrinkles when applied as a face mask. Avocados are also packed with healthy oils which makes it perfect as a treatment for dry and dehydrated skin. Use a few drops of avocado oil on freshly cleansed skin to experience hydrated, glowing and soft skin – yes please!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Another epic ingredient that many people would not think to put ON their skin but here’s why you should…Apple Cider Vinegar is full of anti-oxidants which help to draw out toxins from the skin. If you are experiencing dry skin at the moment try using this product to help balance the pH of the skin, it works by balancing the production of sebum – pretty cool! Just make sure to dilute your ACV 1:1 with water as it is an acid. If you have sensitive skin try a test patch first.
We LOVE Manuka honey and for good reason! It is packed with huge amounts of minerals and other essential nutrients and has been used medicinally for hundreds of years as an antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory remedy for internal and external uses. Manuka honey holds moisture which is why is works so well as an ingredient in natural moisturisers. Look our for this ingredient if you are wanting silky-soft skin!
We all know the anti-oxidant powers of Green tea, but did you also know that Green tea’s sister, White tea is SUPER high in anti-oxidants too? Yup, and this makes it the perrrrfect ingredient to add into your skin care routine to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and encourages the skin to retain moisture, helping it to stay hydrated and supple – just how we like it! All of this makes it another one of our FAVE ingredients to nourish the bodies largest organ.
Sweet Almond Oil
Last but definitely not least is gorgeous sweet almond oil. This amazing ingredient is full of vitamin E and monounsaturated fatty acids which explains why it is sooooo nourishing for our skin. Many synthetic skincare actually add in vitamin E for the known benefits such as prevention of oxidative stress, UV damage and for it’s ability to create the softest skin. This is hypoallergenic making it ideal for helping to relieve Eczema and Psoriasis.
