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, you only want to choose the best Organic & Natural Skincare skincare!
Indagare Natural Beauty, Australia creates potent yet truly natural skincare that encourages a radiant, healthy glow without using any harmful toxins. These 10 tips will help you get the most out of your natural, Australian-made organic skincare products.
When you choose only to use the best organic skincare made here in Australia, you choose to help your skin look and feel great without any nasty toxins, but you will get better results 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 vitamins and minerals you need. 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.
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. Divide your weight by 30. The answer is the number of litres you should be drinking per day to keep adequately hydrated.
Stress and anxiety can increase inflammation and have negative impacts on the health of your skin. 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. Consider using beautifully formulated, 100% natural skincare products, such as our Night Rituals Organic Face and Body Oil, as part of your nightly relaxation routine.
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. Get at least eight hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep every night.
Some people probably won't see immediate results when they start using a new skincare line - though we have many customers amazed at how fast they see results with our range! But, it's important to give yourself at least four to six weeks to start noticing changes before you make any changes or sweeping decisions. Be patient - it will reward you! Organic and natural skincare products are intended to be 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 truly natural products, such as the ones created here in Australia by Indagare Natural Beauty, your skin will respond from a deeper level over time.
If you are using multiple products, start with the thinnest one and finish with the thickest. Heavy products, such as sunscreen or thick night creams, may prevent the lighter products from reaching your skin.
Begin your face cleansing routine by rinsing with warm 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 use it to wipe your face gently. 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 an additional product (the water in your sink is perfectly fine), but your skin is the softest and most receptive to products directly after cleansing.
The skin around your eyes is thin and sensitive and is one of the first places many people begin to show signs of aging. Taking good care of the skin around your eyes is one of the best ways to improve the overall appearance of your skin.
The primary reason for using sunscreen is to protect yourself from sun damage that can increase your risk of skin cancer. However, 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.
Beware of greenwashing - the practice of where companies market themselves and their products. From large corporations hiding or covering up their less-than-stellar environmental records with a clever PR move to companies promoting themselves and their ingredients as being more natural or safe than they really are (just because something is advertised as not having parabens doesn't mean there are not other unsafe ingredients!), greenwashing is all-too-common!
