Being used to a price difference between non-organic and organic produce is something that most of us are used to. When it comes to skincare, and the already high prices you pay, it's easy to assume that we'll need a weeks wages to overhaul your skincare regime to an organic one.
This is not the case at all! Changing my skincare to natural and organic, has been the easiest and cheapest transition I've made throughout my journey. In fact, you probably have most of the products in your house right now. You may have seen my coffee scrub post, a little while back. This is my favourite exfoliant for both my face and body. I also use coconut oil to cleanse, and Rose Hip oil to moisturise. Pretty easy hey? And my skin has never been better!
Sometimes our skin needs a little boost, to help our skin during the change of season in the way of a mask. Along with my other organic skincare, I like to keep it really simple, and make my own masks.
Below is a recipe for my current favourite hydrating mask. Start by cleansing, exfoliating, and then apply your mask.
A note on dry skin - Although you may have a few spots or pimples, this DOES NOT mean you have oily skin. If you're like most women, spots and blemishes are generally caused by internal factors like hormones, chemicals, or a detoxifying process. Try to look past the spots, is your skin dry to touch? When you give it a gentle pinch, does it spring back to where is was slowly? Try this in different places on your face. Does it look a little lifeless and lacks glow? These are all signs of dry skin. If you have any questions on your skin type, please post them below, I'm more than happy to help!
