Are you Googling this & not finding a clear answer?!
We get it! With the wealth of information on the web, finding the perfect Face Cream for your skin type can be exhausting - both mentally & financially. In this Blog Post we are covering all the things to look for when searching for the Face Cream made for you!
The MAIN thing we find that has helped keep our skin happy, healthy & glowing is all the ingredients we put on our skin. All of our points below include what ingredients to look for when searching for an all-natural Face Cream.
When it comes to ANY skincare product we cannot stress enough about knowing exactly what ingredients are in your products. Remember: what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body and blood stream, which, depending on the ingredients, can have some effects to our bodies overall health.
We recommend looking for "clean products" & avoiding things like parabens, sulfates SLS and SLES, phthalates, mineral oils, micro-plastics, formaldehydes, and retinyl palmitate to name a few. Synthetic fragrance can not only cause irritation to your skin, but also become a threat to your health.
Everyday Nourishment - maybe the MOST important thing to consider!
Your Face Cream is the last thing to be applied in your skincare routine - and with good reason! For morning applications, we are prepping our skin with all the nutrients it needs to help prevent things like dullness and any irritation caused by everyday elements we run into daily (literally). Applying at nighttime is just as important. This is when we help restore those same amazing nutrients while we sleep.
Here are some of our favourite nourishing ingredients & what they have been known to do for your:
Vitamin C is probably one of our TOP 3 ingredients we love in any skincare product. Packed with antioxidant properties, Vitamin C has been known to help promote collegen, help diminish the appearance of scars & protect skin from damaging properties caused by UV exposure (we still recommend using a sunscreen in your routine for more effective protection from UV exposure).
Banana Extract contains Vitamin A from which helps restore moisture & smoothen out any rough texture of the skin. Think of Banana Extract as a gentle exfoliator which is great to help rid of any dead skin while hydrating any parched skin.
Cucumber Extract is considered a superfood for the skin! Packed with proteins, lipids, Vitamin C & minerals, Cucumber Extract helps soothe & relieve puffy skin - great for under the eyes!
Grapefruit Seed Extract contains antioxidant properties while may help protect cells from damage like Acne.
While Orchid Extract is packed with calcium, magnesium & zinc, which have been known to help with skins immunity, fine lines & signs of aging.
Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!
Regardless of your skin type, looking for moisturizing properties in your Face Cream is essential in keeping it glowing a fresh face.
All-natural ingredients like Shea Butter & Jojoba Oil will not only help add moisture to your skin, but prevent future dryness. These ingredients create a moisturizing barrier between your skin & the elements that dry it out.
Keeping it light keeps skin bright!
Your face is much more delicate than the skin on the rest of your body. You never want to use the same heavier products you would use in your body care routine on your face.
Two ingredients that stand out for us that help promote a lighter consistency are Aloe Vera Gel & Fractioned Palm Oil. These ingredient not only helps with creating a moisturizing barrier & decrease puffiness, but they also add lighter properties to your Face Cream. These lighter ingredients helps balance out some of the more "thicker" ingredients making your Face Cream an ideal consistency & weight for your face.
