If you have ever read the ingredient lists of your favourite beauty products, there is likely to be multiple mysterious ingredients that you have no idea how to even pronounce. But skincare doesn’t have to be complicated! In fact there are many tried and true natural beauty products you could be using that are completely organic and only include one ingredient.
If you are thinking of swapping out some of your beauty products for natural organic options in the new year, today’s post is for you! Here are the five best natural skincare products made with only one ingredient!
The best natural skincare products with only one ingredient!
Bentonite clay makes a great facial mask and has somewhat of a cult beauty following. It’s been used for thousands of years because of its healing properties and ability to pull out impurities. To use it as a face mask, all you need to do is mix the bentonite clay powder with a little bit of water. Apply a thick layer over your face then leave on for 10-20 minutes. Just make sure to moisturize your skin afterwards since this clay mask can tend to be a bit drying.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil makes an amazing spot treatment if you have any blemishes you want to get rid of quickly. It’s anti-bacterial to help prevent infections, and anti-inflammatory to help get rid of redness and irritation. To use the tea tree oil, just place one drop of oil on your fingertip, then gently dab it onto any blemishes you are trying to heal up.
This Moroccan oil makes an amazing night-time moisturizer. I’ve personally tried a using a few different facial oils but argan is my favourite. It’s lightweight, and doesn’t clog my pores. I also love using argan oil as an eye makeup remover. Just a few drops on a cotton pad and it easily wipes away liquid liner and mascara.
Rose hydrosol (aka. rose water) is created by distilling rose petals and has the most heavenly floral scent. Often used as a facial toner, it is great for moisturizing and balancing your skin. Filled with good for you ingredients like vitamin C, a quick spray after washing your face will help keep your skin looking youthful and refreshed.
No list of natural beauty products would be complete without including coconut oil. Although coconut oil is the moisturizer of choice for many beauty aficionados,I personally feel it’s a little too heavy of an oil to use on my face. Instead, my favourite use for coconut oil is actually as a lip treatment. It helps lock in moisturize and has a pleasant coconut-y taste. Coconut oil also makes for a great hair mask. Just rub a small amount on the ends of your hair to help prevent split ends!
