Catherine Marqueses details 13 common ingredients


Natural and organic products are all over the market today. Since they were first introduced, their benefits have surprised the entire world. When used regularly, they don’t just beautify the skin; they also boost the immune system, improve the skin’s UV resistance, absorb more antioxidants, and a lot more. So if you wish to keep your skin fresh, glowing, and healthy without hurting your pocket, you know what you need. Run to your kitchen and find any of these natural and organic products.

1. Coconut Oil

One of the most popular and most versatile organic products used nowadays, coconut oil provides the skin with numerous benefits, such as protection against sunburns and strengthening of the epidermal tissues. In addition, it fights chronic skin problems like atopic dermatitis. For makeup fans, it can be used to safely and naturally remove even the most stubborn eye mascara.

2. Tea Tree Oil

For many years, tea tree oil has been used to fight skin issues like inflammation, redness, and breakouts. Then again, some people have allergic reactions to this product. That is why they dilute and combine it with carrier oils before applying to the skin.

3. Pure Honey

Known as a natural source of vitamins, enzymes, and other nutrients, pure honey benefits the skin by preventing breakouts, fighting off rashes and allergies, reducing scars, and promoting wound healing. Since it is unprocessed and pure, all nutrients remain intact, which is a very good thing for total skin care.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar

It’s not only valuable in the kitchen; it’s also a great and versatile skin care product. It cleanses the skin, stops acne, and kills pathogens that cause different problems. It even detoxifies the body internally as it contains vitamins like magnesium and potassium.

5. Avocado

Avocado is a moisturizing fruit that contains vitamins A, D, and E. These vitamins help soothe sunburn, treat signs of aging, and boost collagen production. When eaten or applied topically, this fruit can reduce skin inflammation and keep the skin hydrated and moisturized.

6. Sea Salt

Packed with nutrients like potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium, sea salt is a great product that effectively restores, balances, and protects the skin. In fact, because of its properties, it has been widely used in toners, scrubs, and facial masks.

7. Argan Oil

Used in Morocco for years, Argan oil has healing properties that make it a wonderful addition to your skin care regimen. Plus, it has vitamins A and E that are great for moisturizing the skin and boosting your hair health.

8. Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil has been used to fade away scars and age spots, brighten the skin, and fight off wrinkles. To use, simply mix it with jojoba oil and apply into the affected areas of the skin. As an added bonus, it can be used to whiten the teeth, freshen the laundry, and clean the house.

9. Aloe Vera

In Chinese medicine, aloe vera is used to treat infections and skin diseases. But did you know that it has soothing properties that also combat redness, itching, and inflammation in the skin? When taken orally, it can reduce the number of parasites found in the bone marrow, spleen, and the liver.

10. Almond Oil

Though it’s not as popular as you think, almond oil actually offers plenty of perks to the skin. And it doesn’t just smell great. It also boasts antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties that make it a stand out against other carrier oils that treat skin dryness, acne, and rashes. Since it quickly adapts to different smells, it is used in facial masks, body lotions, and washes.

11. Castor Oil

Although it is known as a “drying oil”, castor oil is primarily used to cleanse the skin. It is normally mixed with other oils like almond or organic coconut oil for better results. It is rubbed into the face and rinsed with warm water to get rid of impurities.

12. Shea Butter

Shea butter has been used as a natural skin product. Because of its moisturizing properties, it helps reduce flaking, peeling, and redness. And since it is very affordable, it has been widely cultivated in the African continent and exported to different countries all over the world.

13. Jojoba Oil

One of the most popular carrier oils today, jojoba oil helps treat psoriasis, sunburn, acne, chapped skin, sores, scars, and wrinkles. It also provides moisture control and promotes hair regrowth, making it ideal for those suffering from the effects of baldness. Of course, all these natural and organic products won’t be useful if you don’t take care of yourself as well. Hence, get the right amount of sleep, steer clear of stressful activities, exercise regularly, eat right, and love yourself. You’ll see that your skin will be as healthy and glowing as ever!
