- Cleanser; Effective skin cleansers, also known as surfactants can contain a number of different vegetable oils, including coconut, sesame, or palm oils. These are safe and effective cleansers and have a low pH. Seaweeds are also used as skin cleansers. their high mineral content stimulates circulation, helps eliminate toxins embedded in the skin and leaves the skin feeling smooth. Seaweeds can to some degree re-mineralize the skin and strengthen its immune and healing functions.
- Facial Scrubs; Use a facial scrub that contains a mild abrasive, such as oatmeal, etc., at least 2 - 3 times a week.
- Toner; After the skin is cleansed, skin toner or rinse that has an astringent effect closes the pores, tightens the skin, and helps to keep it from being exposed to many of the toxins floating in the air. There are a wide variety of natural toners that are effective such as geranium, vitamin e, honey, and witch hazel, however, witch hazel is very strong and can have drying effects. My favorite is geranium.
- Moisturizers; Moisturizers also known as humectants, attract moisture to the skin's surface and hold it there, moisturizers make the skin softer and prevent it from drying, and chapping, and slow down the aging process. Some effective moisturizers will include the following; hyaluronic acid, rose water, jojoba oil, vitamin e oils, iris, and aloe vera. Be careful with a moisturizer that contains mineral oil (used in mass-market skin care products) it is a petrochemical that can dry the skin, block pores, and prevent it from breathing and eliminating waste.
