When choosing a natural face cream it is important to ensure that it is appropriate for your skin type and your skin’s needs. Remember that it is the active ingredients that make any formulation work. There are three essential tips to follow when choosing a natural face cream.
Choose a Natural Face Cream that contains Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant which protects skin cells from harm caused by exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun, environmental pollution and other elements. It helps protect against oxidation as well as helping to prevent free radical damage to cell membranes. It helps regulate levels of Vitamin A in the body, which is essential for healthy skin. Vitamin E works against aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. In addition it helps soothe skin inflammation and irritation, and also prevents and treat sunburn.
The Natural Face Cream should contain a light emollient
Light emollients have properties soothe and soften skin. They do so without blocking the pores, leaving them free from unwanted grime. They also serve to seal moisture in your skin cells, so you can have supple skin throughout.
Stay away from face creams that use artificial fragrances
All natural face creams are made of 100% natural ingredients. They do not contain any synthetic chemicals such as artificial fragrances. Ultimately artificial fragrances and preservatives can cause your skin to be prone to allergies, dryness and irritation.
It is advisable to include a day and night cream in your daily routine. This will nourish your skin with rich antioxidants, cleanse your skin with high quality ingredients, and encourage your skin to restore the levels of collagen and elastin that are present in younger skin cells. Look for day and night face creams that are clearly labeled organic, all natural, preservative free, or toxin free.
if your skin is dry you should use a product that is oily and highly moisturizing and absorbing. Alternatively if you have oily skin that is prone to breakouts look for a natural face cream with a less oily texture. These facial creams not only keep the skin hydrated and fresh looking but also absorb the excess oil from the skin’s surface and regulate the production of oil. Look for a matifying cream that is hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic (won’t clog pores)
Application of a Natural Face Cream
Always apply the face cream on cleansed and toned skin. Use a mild cleanser and wash your face with circular motions. Always clean your skin at night before going to bed. Apply a facial toner depending on your skin type to remove any excess oil or makeup residue. Let your face dry completely before you apply the cream. Natural face cream products should be applied correctly and sparingly. These organic creams should be applied daily even if you aren’t going to apply makeup. Start by applying small amounts of the face cream and gradually increase the amount until you have determined the correct amount to use on your skin.
Take a small amount of the cream with your fingertips and apply it to the face avoiding the eye area.
Dot the cream an inch away from the eyes to avoid irritation. Make sure you apply the cream evenly and massage it in very lightly. Apply the natural face cream on the middle of the forehead and massage from the inward corners of the eyebrows, outwards. From the mid point of the eyebrows move down below the eyes using a circular motion.
Massage the nose from the upper part downwards towards the nostrils, and from nostrils to the temples.
Apply the cream above the upper lip and move towards the cheeks.Then apply cream below the lower lip and move down till you reach below the chin. In the end, apply the natural face cream below the chin and massage downwards.
If your skin feels too oily use a tissue to absorb any excess face cream from your face. Use an eye cream to moisturize and nourish the skin around the eyes.
