Natural Skin Care

Hello everyone! Welcome to Ninet Essentials website! As you know, I have been busy in the last year learning about cosmetics, soaps, lotions and which products are beneficial for me and my family. And let me tell you, I have learned a lot! This is my first Blog and I would like to start by giving you some tips, so that, you can choose the right products for your skin.

Can you go natural and get a great looking glow? Things in the environment are harmful to your skin. Environmental pollution, ultraviolet light (sunshine), extreme temperatures, wind, sweating and using the wrong skin products can all damage that important outer layer. The good news is that you have the power to maintain healthy skin by using the write products.

Avoid heavy-duty cleansers

Your skin needn’t be scrubbed or squeaky to be clean. So don’t over do it. Mild, nondetergent cleansers like milks, gels, foams, or cloths are your best bet. Scan the ingredient labels of products to see if they contain gentle, plant-derived surfactants (the prefix coco- equals coconut, for example; gluco- equals fruit sugars). The natural source is often hinted at in the name.

Ditch the toner

These were originally invented to restore the natural pH of skin after it had been washed with an alkaline-detergent soap. If you’re using a pH-balanced cleanser, there’s no need for toner, because it’ll only dry your skin.

Make sure acid-laced products are pH-balanced

This means their pH is in sync with skin, so they gently remove sebum (an oily substance secreted by the skin) and makeup without stripping natural oils. Look for the words pH-balanced on cleansers that contain glycolic or lactic acids and on exfoliators because some have a low pH, which can cause dryness.

Opt for fragrance-free

Fragrance is the most common cause of skin-care-related allergic reactions. If you’re sensitive, be sure to choose products that are labeled “fragrance-free.” The ones that are marked “unscented” typically contain small amounts of fragrance to help mask the odors of active ingredients.

Choose multitasking moisturizers

A good day cream juggles two jobs -hydration and protection.- Pick one that has plant-based moisturizers (natural oils, and butters; these contain essential fatty acids that penetrate in the skin better than man-made emollients like petroleum) and antioxidants those from natural sources may also contain bioflavonoids and other beneficial compounds not found in synthetic versions, plus nonirritating physical sunblocks, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

There is a lot of information I want to share with you! So, stay tuned! Until next time!
