Four Chemical-Free Anti-Aging Products

We all know that natural ingredients do a world of good to our skin. Lotions and creams packed with chemicals might give the skin a temporary feel-good glow, but using them for years might be terribly harmful to the body. Since scientists are still looking for the real reason behind diseases like cancer, it is best to be safe than sorry. Why go for chemical-ridden products when there are tons of great chemical-free products packed with the goodness of natural ingredients available in the market? For those who are looking for anti-aging products, it might be especially tricky. Since many of these lotions claim to remove wrinkles within a week, consumers are always in a dilemma whether to go for them or choose natural products.

We say, give them a try? It might work for you! Here are a few natural ingredients that are great for your skin along with a product that has them. Go on, find out which one you need!

Pomegranates For Wrinkles

If you didn’t know already, pomegranates are packed with antioxidants. In fact, sunflower, pomegranate, and camellia oil, when used over the sunscreen, helps avoid future damage and also aids in collagen production since they are rich in Vitamin E. John Master’s Organics Pomegranate Facial Nourishing Oil is a blend of ten different essential oils, pomegranate included, to form an antioxidant-rich solution. with a 30-dollar price tag, it seems pretty steep for sure, but think of the benefits you can get from this all-natural face oil! As for how to use it, take it out whenever your skin feels dry or dehydrated. You can either apply on the entire skin or target dry patches. One other hack is to put it evenly on the face before applying your night cream. This will help retain moisture and keep the skin fresh and soft in the morning.

Sugar Scrub For Dullness

Since people are becoming more health-conscious, hating sugar has become a national sport of sorts. However, there is something good about sugar. Scrubbing is an essential part of skin care because as we age, dead skin cells build up which result to dullness and other nasty skin issues. Exfoliating with store-bought scrubs can help, but more often that not, these products result to break-outs because of how harsh they can be, especially the micro beads. In case you’re looking for an alternative for a physical exfoliator, you can definitely go for a sugar scrub. It usually dissolves as you massage it on your skin which means you wouldn’t accidentally overdo it. The best part is that you can make your own at home with just sugar and some honey! But if you can spare some extra moolah, Fresh Sugar Face Polish is great. It is a brown sugar scrub which contains hydrating oils. It retails at $62.

Vine Sap For Dark Spots

Hyperpigmentation is another problem that aging skin has to fight. It has been found that extracts from soy, peony, vine sap, daisies, and licorice root does fight hyperpigmentation and helps remove dark spots effectively. If you can have them in your serum or cream, they can also reduce the free radicals that are responsible for several aging skin-related issues. Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is great, and as the name suggests, it contains Viniferine (vine sap). However, the price tag of $79 definitely a lot especially for those with a budget. A great alternative would be Burt’s Bees Brightening Skin Serum which is only $20.

Dead Sea Salt For Skin Metabolism

Surprised? Well, our skin has metabolism, too! As we all know, age kind of slows down our metabolism, and yes, it happens for our skin, too. Dead sea salt helps in slowing down the process of aging in skin. It also strengthens the body’s immune system function by balancing body fluids. Soaking your body in a bath with Dead Sea salt is great for joint aches and pains and blood circulation. Sea salt has been used for psoriasis treatment and wrinkle reduction. Sea Minerals Mist by Osea keeps the skin hydrated and reduces inflammation. It also helps in retaining your makeup when it is humid. Comes for about $38, but all worth it, especially since it reduces the signs of aging visibly very quickly.

One thing to remember while using these naturally good products is that they will take a longer time to work than your usual anti-aging products. So you need to learn to be patient, but when you do, it truly pays off. Just keep reminding yourself that you are doing your skin a favor by staying away from chemicals!
