Today’s post is focused on how to get you the best skin possible without using products. I definitely think products can help skin out, but getting nice dewy and healthy skin, in my opinion, is easiest to create when following a healthy diet, utilizing a few beauty tips and DIY recipes. You’ll be surprised at how effective some of these really are. so without further delay, here are some tips on how to get flawless skin naturally. 

EAT HYDRATING FOODS FOR GLOWING SKIN

Achieving glowing skin can seem impossible at times, and yes you can always fake it with makeup, but to get authentically glowing skin, I highly recommend a diet high in fruits and veggies, especially berries. They have very high concentrations of antioxidants, help keep your body hydrated (which in turn, hydrates your skin), and they are high in vitamins and nutrients essential to repairing and maintaining healthy skin. To learn more about the benefits of berries for your skin, check out the original post I did on this here. Aside from berries, there are a ton of hydrating foods you can consume to up the hydration of your cells and therefore your skin. Check out a list I’ve made of these foods – here.

 

DIY TONERS TO CALM REDNESS & INFLAMMATION

I used to think I needed some kind of magical product to fix my skin, but after much experimentation, I find that a nice DIY recipe works just as well, if not better, and I am left with a lot more cash in my pocket at the end of it all. One thing that I definitely deal with a lot, especially in the Summer time, is redness. The most effective treatment for this, by far, are toners and you can make a number of them with ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Check out the DIY toner recipes – here.

SUPPLEMENT FOR GREAT SKIN

Although we can do everything right, including eat well, sometimes I think it’s still pretty difficult to get all the nutrients our skin and body need to function at optimal levels. Because of this, I think supplements can be very beneficial to our systems, especially in resolving skin problems such as acne, dry skin, redness, and other issues. For a list of essential supplements for beauty and health, check here. There are many benefits to be gained from taking supplements, especially for preventing premature aging and treating existing issues. To see the beauty benefits of vitamins, check here.

 

PLANT OILS IN SKINCARE

You’re probably really familiar with the idea of using plant oils in skincare as many brands have begun to utilize these in their product formulations, but did you know that they can be just as beneficial used on their own? Some of you may still be wary of using oil on your skin, but don’t be. Choosing the right oil for you skin type, which you can do – here – is all you need to find the perfect plant oil that will benefit you the most. There are tons to choose from for any skin type from dry to sensitive to oily. To learn more about using oil in skincare, check out this post and if you’re unsure about how to use natural plant oils for the best results, you can get more information in this post that will help you.

I hope these tips were helpful to you in your quest for skin perfection!

Max Green Alchemy Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil
Dry winter skin can really suck, especially when it’s coupled with irritation, redness, and flakiness, which is most of the time if not all. To keep my skin looking plump, hydrated and calm, I’ve taken to drawing up warm baths a few times a week and using this incredibly soothing bath oil by Max Green Alchemy – the Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil.

I’ve written a bit about Max Green Alchemy as I really love many, if not all, of their products. They are brilliant and made with organic, cruelty free, and wild crafted plant ingredients which seek to heal the skin from inside out and pretty much succeed in that effort, if you ask me. So, after reviewing this bath oil for about a month, it’s not really a surprise that I’d love this one too!

The scent of this bath oil is AMAZING and it really does soothe irritated and/or dry skin. The scent of it is exactly the same as their Skin Rescue Cream which I reviewed awhile back ( you can see that review – here ) and works just as well at calming skin inflammation as the cream, except without the added hydration you get from the cream. I get extremely dry skin come winter time and that dryness can easily turn into irritated, chapped skin which is not just horrible to look at, it can also be painful. This bath oil has helped me avoid that situation altogether and I am SO thankful!

Aside from being extremely effective at calming and hydrating skin, this bath oil is seriously relaxing. It smells incredible and the oil itself actually dissolves into the water rather than sitting on top of it like most oils do so it really envelops your skin in a cocoon of hydrating oil-infused bath water.

Lastly, one of my favorite things about this product ( and Max Green Alchemy products, in general ) is that fact that not only is this product effective, luxurious, and pleasant to use, but it also has an excellent ethical foundation to stand on. The ingredients are great, natural, cruelty free and the formulation leaves out typical nasties which can cause environmental or bodily harm so it’s really a product I can stand behind and I love that.

More Reasons to Love this Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil:

•” Pure organic botanic and essential oils calm, soothe and moisturize skin
• Supports the treatment of psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema
• Unique formula blends with bath water to infuse into skin
• Won’t leave nasty oil residue on the tub
• Steroid-free, paraben-free, petrochemical-free, GMO-free, lanolin-free, polysorbate-free, cruelty-free
• Enchanting non-medicinal aroma of organic chamomile and neroli
• Contains many certified organic ingredients
• 100% plant origin”

Blûm Naturals Daily Cleansing and Makeup Remover Face Towelettes

I was recently sent these awesome facial towelettes from Blûm Naturals for review and I absolutely love them! Previously, I was such a huge fan of the Yes to Cucumbers Face Wipes, but now I think I am converting over to these! They are really convenient, have an awesome natural ingredient list that is all plant derived and they are nearly the same price as the ones from Yes to Cucumbers and just as refreshing!

Blûm Naturals Tea Tree Daily Cleansing & Make up Remover Towelettes for Combination to Oily Skin

I really enjoyed these tea tree towelettes because they help refresh my skin when it’s hot out, but the tea tree in them is a great antibacterial ingredient for me in the summer when I’m most likely to be breaking out a lot due to the heat.

 A lot of people online seem to be crediting this with helping to clear acne up. Although I don’t have enough breakouts at the moment to attest to that, I do know that the ingredients in this have been shown to be effective against acne. If nothing else, these really helps to mattify my skin and control oiliness when it gets super hot. It is also great for taking along in your bag when you’re at an amusement park on a hot day, I’ve found!

 Blûm Naturals Chamomile Daily Cleansing & Make up Remover Towelettes for Dry & Sensitive Skin

These towelettes are a bit less medicinal smelling than the tea tree ones and more relaxing and calming than anything. I really liked treating redness with these! They are just as refreshing as the tea tree, but they seem a lot more calming and mild. I definitely enjoyed them as well, but I found that my sister who has dry skin had more of a use for them than I did so I passed them along like the good sister that I am, of course! 😉

All in all, I enjoyed these facial towelettes a lot. I find that these are especially useful in the summertime as a refreshing pick me up or even to take on short overnight trips when I don’t feel like bringing everything but the kitchen sink with me. I definitely recommend these because they are so affordable and feature an awesome list of natural ingredients tailored to your skin type.

If you’ve been reading along (which I hope you are!), you’ll know all about my new found love for all the Max Green Alchemy products I ever tried.

(You can see my previous MGA reviews – here and here!)

So, skeptic as I am, I didn’t really think that even their skincare would be so awesome as well, but I am happy to say that it totally is!

I recently tried the Elemeni Radiance Face Oil for Oily Prone Complexions and I was surprised that after about a week of continued use, my skin appeared clearer, calmer and more radiant as promised.

I really shouldn’t be surprised, though, because their ingredient list truly is impressive!

Ingredients
Olea Europaea* (Olive) Oil, Rosa Moschata* (Rose Hip) Seed Oil, Simmindsia Chinensis* (Jojoba), Corylus Avellana (Hazelnut) Oil, Daucus Carota (Carrot) Oil, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Cupressus Sempervirens (Cypress), Rosa Damascena (Bulgarian Rose Otto), Lavandula Angustifolia* (Lavender), Citrus Nobilis* (Mandarin), Santalum Album^ (Sandalwood), Boswelia Carterii (Frankincense), Calendula Officinalis* (Calendula), Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C Ester).
* Organic + Wildcrafted ^Plantation Grown

Impressive, right?

That’s what I thought too!

And I know, I know, $29.99 seems like a bit to drop on a small dropper bottle, but you truly only need a few drops daily for face and neck to see the effects.

I’ve been using it for around nearly 2 weeks and I still have 3/4 of the bottle left.

Definitely recommend this one for anyone battling oiliness in this summer’s heat or anyone  who consistently battles oily skin in any climate – this definitely works to balance the complexion and hydrate without drying out your skin.

If you have a drier or more normal skin type, not to fret! Max Green Alchemy carries this face oil for your types as well. Check out the entire Elemeni Face Oil line – here!
