I’ve narrowed down my top 3 favorite natural products for beautiful, radiant skin and compiled them for you below.
As women in our 20s, 30s, 40s…, we often wrestle between how to stay naturally youthful and age with beauty. Personally, I’ve been torn between how to balance healthy, daily routines and potentially start introducing a little plastic help. Although, I’m still on the natural side of things (for now) I’m sure at some point I’ll want something extra. Who knows?
But, there’s good news! There are a ton of natural products out there that you can start using today to maintain beautiful skin. Just like a supplement, you’ll want to keep the usage on a routine for the best results.
However, I will be the first to admit I am the WORST with daily routines. I guess I thrive in mixing things up! 🙂 So I’ve found a few products and tricks that offer great results almost immediately, with little to no routine required.
Top 3 Natural Products for Your Skin
The first on my list is the Algenist Genesis Lip Gloss with collagen in it. If you know anything about me so far, you’ve probably noticed I love all things collagen. There is nothing better than introducing natural ways to produce more radiant and glowing skin! There are a ton of other benefits too. You can check them out in a recent post of mine – THE BENEFITS OF ADDING COLLAGEN TO YOUR COFFEE.
Ladies, you’re going to love this second product if you want long, full lashes! Not to mention the cost and time savings. No. 2 on the list is coconut oil. You’ll want to apply coconut oil on your lashes at night before you go to bed. I use an eyebrow brush to apply but you can also use your fingers.
Be careful on how much you use. The oil wont hurt your eyes but it can cause a blurry effect if you use too much. So just try applying lightly every night. I wouldn’t recommend this trick in the morning. It can make things a tad blurry if you use too much, which can make it pretty difficult to see. But it’s perfect while you’re sleeping at night. It conditions your lashes so when you’re ready to apply your mascara the next day they’re fuller and longer.
I personally love coconut oils with a pump so I can also use as a lotion. I’m not a fan of scrounging around the bottom of a jar for the last bit. You can get the same kind by clicking the image below.
And last but not least is a nightly face mask. It’s been like a magic eraser for me. No matter how dehydrated my skin has been, it wipes away any proof of me lacking in my facial care routine. My skin feels completely revived by morning.
You’ll want to find one that isn’t sticky or messy so you won’t have to worry about washing your pillow constantly. My absolute favorite nightly mask has been by Origins! Their overnight Drink Up Intensive mask has been a lifesaver for me for years now. You can get it on Amazon right now for under $30!
“A woman’s beauty is like her armor – when it’s full, strong and complete – it gives a woman boldness, courage and strength. Every part of a woman – from her hair, skin and mind to her strength, fears, dreams and desires – make a woman who she is and worthy in all that she is.”– Anna Doan, Reveal Beauty CEO + Founder
It’s so easy to lose sight of our own personal aging process and compare ourselves to the women around us. Especially if those women appear to have less wrinkles, more plump lips, fuller lashes.. I could go on, but you get it.
The truth is, every woman wants to feel beautiful, no matter what age we are. I’ve yet to meet a woman that has found true contentment in her outer beauty, regardless of how flawless she appears to be. We all know that true beauty comes from the inside. And this post isn’t meant to deflate that truth on any level.
The best part of all of this is there is only one of you and that makes you the most beautiful. So stop trying to compare yourself and focus on balancing what makes you feel beautiful inside and out.
For More on Inner Beauty…
I was up all night brainstorming with a girl friend of mine about a lip gloss line that she’s launching this year. As christian women in our 30s (and single) we can battle the ideas in our minds of who we think we are supposed to be and end up thinking that involves an appearance.
We all tend to struggle with outer beauty when it becomes more of the focus than who we are on the inside. While it’s okay to want to be your most beautiful version, it becomes unsafe and unhealthy when we can’t accept ourselves for exactly who God made us to be.
If you’re struggling with finding your true beauty, be it inside or out, I hope you’ll take the time to head over to her blog and learn a little more about inner beauty. She’s an incredible God-fearing woman and I know you’l enjoy some of her posts.
You are beautiful. You are loved. You are enough.
