Let’s talk about skin care. It is an art that has been around for centuries and today it is as important as ever to keep our skin nourished and protected from the elements. Our face and body are our first lines of defense against all of life's challenges, so we must take special care of them--not only to look beautiful, but to stay healthy and well.
From the wrinkles that carve a unique map across each face to the curves and lines that define the human body, skin is an expression of our individuality and identity. It is also our largest organ and its health should never be taken for granted.
For too long, women have been sold false promises in the form of harsh chemicals and expensive treatments that can cause long-term harm to delicate skin cells. But today, we have access to sustainable, natural solutions that yield real results with natural ingredients that provide essential vitamins and minerals that actually help heal and strengthen the skin. By embracing organic products and simple changes to our routine, we can take control of our skin’s health and create a radiant glow from head to toe!
We all have our own unique skin, and it is important to honor that uniqueness while still taking care of our skin. As women, it is essential to commit to a skincare routine that will help us maintain healthy skin on the face and body while still using natural and organic ingredients.
Creating Your Natural Skincare Routine
In this blog post, I will share the best skincare routine for the face and body—one that will leave you feeling radiant, healthy, and beautiful.
To start, it's important to understand that proper skin care is a holistic journey.
I believe that one of the keys to having beautiful, healthy skin is nourishment - nourishing not only your body but also your spirit. Take time for yourself each day to practice self-care: treat yourself to some luxurious spa treatments, or just spend time pampering yourself with natural products. Connecting with your inner self helps us create a sense of balance and harmony within ourselves, which in turn reflects outwardly in the form of glowing, healthy skin.
The best skincare routine will incorporate both external and internal elements. When getting started, look for natural, organic products that contain ingredients such as aloe vera, olive oil, shea butter, and calendula flower oil. These natural ingredients help protect and moisturize your skin without harsh chemicals.
Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser that won't strip away natural oils. Gently lather the cleanser all over the face, paying close attention to the areas around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Steaming your face can also promote circulation, reduce inflammation, and encourage new cell growth.
The next step in the process is exfoliation, which is essential for removing dirt, makeup residue, and dead skin cells. This also helps boost collagen production and reveal smoother, brighter skin.
For sensitive areas like the face, always opt for a gentle exfoliant. I use the Zyriah Face and Body Sugar Scrub for exfoliating. It is very gentle on the face and it adds the moisture my dry skin needs without being too oily.
Finally, finish off your routine with a hydrating moisturizer to keep your skin looking plump and soft. Try to use a light formula suited to your skin type for the best results.
Before you ask, Yes, I use the Zyriah Hydrating Body Oil on my face as well. It is light but effective on all your skin and reduces the number of products you need. Cha-Ching! Money saved.
For the body, a hydrating body wash or soap will be sure to leave you feeling refreshed and pampered. Just like your face, your body needs to be exfoliated as well. Again, choose a scrub or even an exfoliating washcloth that will be gentle but effective in washing away those dead skin cells. The Zyriah Face & Body Sugar Scrub is perfect if you have sensitive skin or would like an unscented scrub. Grab the Zyriah Whipped Sugar Scrub which comes in a variety of luscious scents that I am sure you will enjoy.
After washing and exfoliating, give yourself a luxurious body oil massage to nourish and protect your skin. Focus on areas that need extra hydration such as your elbows, knees, and feet.
Now, in terms of internal care, proper hydration and nutrition are vital components of maintaining healthy skin, so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and add more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. Exercise can also benefit your skin and overall health; try yoga or Pilates if you’re looking for something more calming and relaxing. Finally, getting enough rest each night helps keep your skin looking its best - strive for at least 7 hours of sleep each night.
Overall, having a comprehensive skincare routine for both your face and body is essential for maintaining radiant, healthy skin. By incorporating natural and organic ingredients in addition to self-care rituals and proper nutrition, you can achieve beautiful results from the inside out.
Ladies, it is time we take care of ourselves as if we are royalty and give our body the royal treatment it deserves. With these simple yet effective steps, you can experience radiant, healthy skin that is sure to bring out your inner queen.
I hope this guide helps enlighten you on the true power of a proper skincare routine to continue to grow gorgeous naturally!
