The best natural ingredients for your skin

Contrary to popular belief, not everything natural is good for your skin. The same way there are good and bad synthetic ingredients, there are good and bad natural ones

We’re hardwired to believe that natural automatically means better. Leading skin care professionals have shared the most effective list of natural ingredients that you can add to your skincare routine. 

These are excellent for treating acne breakouts, soothing irritation, and preventing sun damage. Here’s a list of the best natural ingredients for your skin. 

1. Green tea extract

If you want smooth, toned, and younger looking skin (who doesn’t!) then you must incorporate green tea extract into your bedtime routine. With strong antioxidant properties, it protects your skin from the pesky free radicals that cause premature aging. What’s more, it gives your skin a major hydration boost – an extra oomph to keep it looking fresh and radiant! 

2. Vitamin C

If you have your head in the skincare game, you’re familiar with the wonders that vitamin C does for your skin. Have tan lines or dry patches? Don’t fret! Adding a vitamin C rich formula to your skincare routine will reduce pigmentation and dullness and give your skin a healthy glow. 

3. Witch hazel

Once a staple in your grandmother’s beauty arsenal, witch hazel is making a strong comeback as a popular and effective ingredient in modern skincare routines. Known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, it makes a fantastic toner to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. 

4. Tea tree oil 

Tea tree oil is a strong natural essential oil that has many benefits for the skin. It’s excellent for treating dry skin and eczema, inflammation, and acne. But use it cautiously – never apply it directly to your skin since it causes a burning sensation. Dilute 2-3 drops of tea tree oil with 10-12 drops of a carrier oil like olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil. 

5. Oats 

Not just a breakfast staple, oats (specifically colloidal oatmeal) is one of the few natural ingredients that the FDA has approved to treat certain skin conditions such as eczema, poison ivy, poison oak, and insect bites. “Oat lipids and proteins help replenish and maintain the skin barrier,” explains dermatologist Jessica Wu, “and oats contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant chemicals.”
