So far organic skin products are still the best when taking care of our skin. It prevent damages and help us maintain a younger looking skin.
Without further ado, here are the best organic products out there:
BEST FOR ANTI-AGING: TRILOGY ROSEHIP OIL
If you pointed a gun to my head and forced me to choose only one organic product for the rest of my life, it’d be rosehip oil (not necessarily from Trilogy but I had to choose one for this post and this is as good as any). Rosehip oil is a natural source of vitamin A, an antiaging superstar that boosts collagen production, fights free radicals and accelerates cellular turnover – 3 things that prevent and treat wrinkles. Plus, vitamin A helps keep acne and pimples at bay, too. That’s not enough. Rosehip oil also contains more antioxidants, like vitamin E, and moisturizing acids, such as linoleic acid. In a nutshell, it does it all.
This oil-based cleanser has a semi-solid texture that turns into a balm when you mix it with water. It works thanks to the like attracts like principle. Rice bran oil, coconut oil and sunflower oil attract the oils in your makeup and sunscreen so they can easily be removed from your skin. Plus, oils are moisturizing so your skin doesn’t feel tight afterwards. The only con? It struggles a bit with waterproof mascara. .
BEST SUNSCREEN: BADGER BALM UNSCENTED SUNSCREEN SPF30
This sunscreen contains only zinc oxide and a handul of botanic extracts and oils. It doesn’t get more organic than this. Plus, zinc oxide is the best sunscreen ingredient ever. It can, on its own, protect skin from the entire UV range. It’s super gentle, too. Even people with sensitive skin can usually slather it all over their bodies without any problems. If you’re worried about white cast it leaves behind, go with the tinted version.
BEST MOISTURIZER: ANDALOU NATURALS ACAI + WHITE TEA OIL-FREE MOISTURIZER
If you have oily skin, you know how hard it is to find a natural moisturizer that doesn’t contain any traces of oil. This is it. It uses aloe vera juice and vegetable glycerin to hydrate the skin and a bunch of natural antioxidants, including white tea and kombucha tea extracts to prevent wrinkles. Bonus points: these tea extracts soothe the irritation caused by sun damage. Just ignore the stem cells claims. Stem cells in skincare are just glorified antioxidants.
BEST FACIAL OIL: TATA HARPER BEAUTIFYING FACE OIL
Facial oils are a great way to naturally moisturize dry skin. This formula contains olive oil, argan oil and camellia oil, three oils that are super moisturizing and have antioxidant properties to boot. Plus, there are plenty of botanical extracts that help fight wrinkles, too. A couple of them may be irritating if you have super sensitive skin, but their low amounts won’t cause any problems for most people.
BEST FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN: JURLIQUE TEA TREE PURE ESSENTIAL OIL
Tea tree oil is the only natural remedy I know that’s effective against acne. It works because it has anti-bacteria properties that kill the bacteria that causes it. It works more slowly than other harsh, synthetic remedies like benzoyl peroxide, but if you’re cool with that, it’s a great option to consider. But, get the real thing. Tea tree oil is effective only at 5% concentrations or higher (most products out there won’t contain enough). One more thing: tea tree oil can cause allergies and irritations in some people. For best results, use it only on pimples.
