Nature Knows Best

As we become more and more aware of what is good or bad for our skin, and what ingredients and chemicals we should and shouldn't be putting on our face, people are choosing to reach for more natural skincare products, and I can completely understand that choice. Particularly if you have sensitive skin, products that are completely or mostly natural may be the best option for you. While I still use products that aren't completely natural, I did want to share some of my favourite natural ones in case you were in the market for some new skincare in this category, or were thinking about delving into the area.

This haircare range is full of good stuff to help replenish any dry, damaged, coarse and chemically treated hair (hello all my fellow coloured blondes). With ingredients including Vitamin B5, Argan Oil avocado oil and rosemary, m a k e offers a great product to naturally help bring your hair under control

From their bath essentials range, these Biology products are infused with ingredients like avocado and almond oils, sunflower oil and essential fatty acids which all help to heal and rejuvenate your skin. The Body Buff has very small granules in it, so you can feel that super light exfoliation as you rub it into your skin, and the Body Butter glides on and sinks in quickly to leave your skin feeling super smooth. Both products have a natural orange smell, with the body butter really reminding me of opening a bottle of orange vitamin C tablets and sticking your nose in to have a smell.

Facial mists and toners are great for not only including in your daily skincare routine, but for having with you throughout the day to keep you refreshed, especially during any of the warmer months. Puretopia's Refresh & Balance Facial Mist & Toner contains aloe, witch hazel and vitamin C which combine to help soothe, purify, brighten and even out your skin. It's gentle nature also means it won't hurt your skin to consistently use it throughout the day. Akin's Hydrating Mist Toner uses coconut oil, green tea and chamomile to refresh and hydrate your skin while also helping to soothe and destress your facial area. Also available in bigger bottles, the Swisse Deep Sea Hydrating Mist Toner truely brings an Aussie flavour to skincare, containing deep sea minerals from Australia's Murray-Darling Basin. There's also some Vitamin B3 and aloe thrown in there to help tone and brighten your skin.

The use of micellar water has continued to grow over the last few years in the skincare community, and for good reason, offering a much gentler way to remove makeup and clean your face. The Akin Cleansing Micellar Water infuses coconut water, green tea, cucumber and lavender into a pH balanced and soap free formula that will soothe and refresh your skin, all while effectively removing any traces of makeup from your face after a long hard day of slaying the world. Another natural makeup removing option is the Swisse Micellar Makeup Remover, which also normally comes in a larger bottle. Enriched with cucumber, this product has no fragrance and is super gentle on sensitive skin.
