You’re not alone if you’re on the quest for younger-looking, glowing skin. You’re also not alone if you’d like to make that happen with natural ingredients or practices, not synthetic ones. Well, you’re in luck! One of our favorite ways to improve our skin’s quality is by using essential oils and other natural practices.
Not sure where to start? Here are some easy changes you can make to your daily routine that will help you get naturally-glowing skin without much work:
Lavender oil is one of the most well-known essential oils when it comes to skincare. You’ll find many products on the market that have lavender included in the ingredients and for good reason! One of the best ways to keep your skin looking youthful is to also keep it hydrated, which is where lavender comes in. Lavender is dry skin’s best friend! One way to get these benefits onto your skin is by putting a drop of lavender essential oil into your daily moisturizer and rub it in. Always test it on a small patch before you cover your entire face, though. Just because a product is natural doesn’t mean that you aren’t allergic to it!
Tea Tree oil has been used to treat blemishes for years and years. It is antiseptic, antiviral, and antibacterial. If you have a spot on your face, try putting a little dab of tea tree oil directly on it, but remember… a little goes a long way! You can also add a few drops to some raw honey and put an even layer of the mixture on your face few a few minutes as a natural face mask. It’s a little messy, but great for your skin!
Eucalyptus oil is also an incredible addition to your skincare routine. Not only does it have an invigorating scent, but will invigorate your skin by improving circulation. More blood flow means that your skin cells will repair more quickly, leading to a glowing complexion. Our favorite way to use eucalyptus is with our 100% Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist. Simply run a hot shower and spritz a few sprays away from your face and into the steam, and relax while you’re skin thanks you!
Anytime skincare is discussed, someone will always bring up drinking a lot of water to improve your skin’s health and appearance, and they’re right! Staying hydrated and flushing out toxins by drinking a lot of water will highly improve your skin’s appearance. If drinking a lot of water is hard for you, maybe treat yourself to a new water bottle for so motivation or download an app on your phone that will let you track your water intake and also remind you when it’s been a while since your last glass.
Keep Your Pillowcase and Towels Clean
Another easy way to make sure your skin is at its best is to wash your pillowcase more often. If you don’t, you’re basically rubbing your face with bacteria, dirt, and sweat while you sleep, which doesn’t help improve your skin. Same goes with your face towels. If you’re using the same towel to dry your face for a week or more, it won’t do your skin any favors.
