Follow These Tips To Get More From Your New Natural Skincare Routine
Your skin is your body's largest organ. It protects you from heat, cold, hazardous substances and dehydration. It is also one of the first things people notice about you.
So, when it comes to nourishing your precious skin while also doing the best for your health and well-being, there are plenty of reasons to use natural skin care instead of traditional products.
Chances are, you only want to use the best Natural Skincare products. Natural skincare that is made with certified-organic ingredients and considers the environment with ethically sourced ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.
Indagare Natural Beauty, Australia, creates potent yet truly natural (and utterly luxurious!) skincare that encourages a radiant, healthy glow without using any harmful toxins. Our range has even won multiple international awards at the world's most prestigious natural beauty awards!
Given that truly natural yet remarkably effective skincare is what we live and breathe here at Indagare, we'd be honoured if you'd allow us to share a few tips and tools we hope will inspire you with your own natural skincare journey and help you get the most out of your 100% natural, Australian-made skincare products.
1. Enhance The Effects From Your Natural Skincare Products With a Healthy Diet
When you choose only to use the best natural and organic skincare made here in Australia, you also choose to help your skin look and feel great without any nasty toxins, but there is no doubt that you will get better results from any skincare you use if you also eat a healthy diet. Collagen helps keep your skin strong and encourages elasticity, which may reduce the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks. A diet with adequate high-quality protein is essential for collagen generation. Eat lots of colourful plant foods to get the necessary vitamins and minerals. Consume moderate amounts of healthy fats. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential and can be obtained through supplements or by eating walnuts, flax seeds, soybeans and fatty fish. Reduce or eliminate foods that contain sugar, preservatives and other harmful ingredients.
2. Drink Plenty of Water To Help Keep Skin Hydrated & Plump
Staying hydrated is essential for healthy skin, yet many people do not drink enough water. Drinking plenty of water fills your skin cells with moisture which can plump up your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Health experts commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 litres - called the 8×8 rule - a day. However, some experts even go so far as to say you should sip on water constantly throughout the day, even when you're not thirsty.
3. Reduce Stress
Stress and anxiety can increase inflammation and negatively impact your skin's health. Too much stress can cause acne to flare, dry skin, rashes, dehydration and other problems. Carve out some time each day to practice relaxation techniques, such as yoga or meditation. Use beautifully formulated, 100% natural skincare products, such as our Night Rituals Organic Face and Body Oil, as part of your nightly relaxation routine. This nightly face and body ritual can cue your mind that it's time to switch off, while the application will most definitely nourish your skin. The ingredients in both the body and face oil in this set boast many known to help calm the mind, with some used to help ease stress. And, if you've got a bath tub, a long, warm bubble bath (perhaps with a book!) is a wonderful way to end a busy day.
4. Get More Sleep
Sleep is when your body repairs the damage done to your skin throughout the day. If you are not getting enough sleep, then your skin never has a chance to recover fully. You may also develop issues such as bags or dark circles under your eyes. Aim for at least eight hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep every night. Drinking herbal tea a few hours before bed and cutting caffeine well before mid-day could go a long way toward helping settle a poor sleep routine.
5. Be Patient With Your New Natural Skincare (or any new skincare!)
Most people probably won't see immediate results when they start using a new skincare line - though we have thousands of customers who have been amazed at how fast they see results with our natural skincare range! But, it's essential to give yourself at least four to six weeks (a complete skin cycle) to start noticing changes before you make any modifications or sweeping decisions. Be patient - going natural with your skincare products and dropping the toxins will reward your skin and overall health! Organic and natural skincare products are a more gentle route to beautiful skin. Our skin is a living, vital organ that craves real, nourishing food as much as our bodies do. When you start feeding it with skincare made from pure, unadulterated and genuinely natural products (beware of greenwashing and learn to read labels to combat this all-too-common tactic), such as those created here in Australia by Indagare Natural Beauty, your skin will respond from a deeper level over time.
7. Apply the Thinnest Products First
Although we've designed our skincare range to offer a simple yet effective routine, we understand some customers like to use products such as retinol. In winter, if you've got very dehydrated or mature skin, a lovely nourishing cream can also be beneficial on top of your face oil. If you are using multiple products from a range of brands and wonder how you incorporate each one into your routine, don't stress. There's a simple rule of thumb: start with the thinnest product in your ritual and finish with the thickest.
8. Wash Your Face Correctly
Begin your face cleansing routine by rinsing with lukewarm water. Starting with your nose and working towards the edge of your face, use three fingers to massage your cleanser onto your skin gently. Rinse your hands, and then rinse the cleaning product off your face with warm - never hot! - water. Follow with your dampened konjac sponge with warm water and gently wipe your face with it - this will give you that double cleanse effect if you wear makeup (and if you don't, the sponge could even be enough to wash your face with). Pat your face dry with a clean, dry, soft cloth, but don't dry your face thoroughly - apply your Signature Night Recovery Oil while your skin is still damp. With skincare, we need to provide both water and fat to reap the full benefit. Massaging your face oils directly into damp skin not only saves you from buying an additional product (the water from your sink is perfectly fine), but your skin is the softest and most receptive to products directly after cleansing.
9. Pay Special Attention to Your Eyes
The skin around your eyes is thin and sensitive and is one of the first places many people begin to show signs of ageing. Taking good care of the skin around your eyes is one of the best ways to improve the overall appearance of your skin. We've all spent a fortune on expensive eye creams. Still, this little pure prickly pear eye roller is not only super affordable but also 100% natural and made from the purest, certified organic prickly pear seed oil sent over in small batches from our fair-trade families in rural Morocco. Why is it excellent for the eyes? Well, prickly pear seed oil has more vitamin E than any other beauty oil in the world - a truly healing, nourishing ingredient for skincare. Plus, it boasts high levels of vitamin K to help strengthen capillaries and reduce dark under-eye circles and spider veins. Prickly pear seed oil is also excellent for restoring elasticity - something we all want for our delicate eye area!
10. Always Use Sunscreen
The primary reason for using sunscreen is to protect yourself from sun damage that can increase your risk of skin cancer, but sun damage is also one of the major contributors to wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Use a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30. The lighter your skin is, the higher SPF you need to avoid sunburn and other sun damage. However, even people with darker complexions need to use sunscreen.
