Going "all-natural" has been making waves in the beauty and skincare world, and for good reason! There's a growing demand for consumers to know what exactly is in their favourite products, especially as many of them contain artificial ingredients, preservatives, and even toxins that aren't so great for your skin. If you've been finding it tricky to find organic products online, why not introduce some natural ingredients into your skincare routine? They're easier to find and extremely versatile, and sometimes going back to basics is exactly what you need. Here are some of our faves.
Matcha

Matcha is more than just a yummy (and healthy) flavor for your drinks and ice cream! It's a powerful anti-aging ingredient that also rejuvenates your skin cells. Try mixing with rose water or honey for an easy DIY face mask!

Raw Honey

Raw honey can be one of the most soothing things to introduce to your skin, and can be incorporated into your routine in a number of ways! Use it as a soft facial cleanser (after removing your makeup), mix it with some other natural ingredients to make your own hair or face mask, or massage it into your face as a gentle exfoliant. The possibilities are endless.

Tea Tree Oil

If you have acne-prone skin and those store-bought artificial products haven't been doing the trick, try this out! Its anti-inflammatory properties makes it a popular ingredient in cleansers and can greatly reduce itchiness and irritation. Make sure to dilute tea tree oil by mixing it with another natural oil like carrier oil, or your favorite moisturizer or toner.

Shea Butter

If you have dry skin, raw shea butter is a great fat that can act as a great remedy, softening and smoothing the skin. You can use it as a natural moisturizer or lip balm, or mixed into your go-to lotion.

Aloe Vera

It's no wonder why aloe vera is a common ingredient in over-the-counter skincare products. In its purer forms, aloe vera works as an amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Mix it with honey for a face mask, or apply to irritated areas like bug bites or acne for relief.

Coconut Oil

Besides being a healthy fat that is great to cook with, coconut oil has some great moisturizing properties for your skin and hair. While it is too thick to act as an effective oil on its own, it works great when applied on top of moisturizer or as an ingredient in your all-natural cleanser.

Ginseng

Yep, not only is ginseng one of the best health drinks out there but it can do great things for your skin. Ginseng extract is beneficial for all skin types, but it's especially good as an anti-aging product. Add it to your next DIY face mask!

Apple Cider Vinegar

You've heard of throwing it onto your salads, now get ready to put it on your skin! Apple cider vinegar can help out with clearing your skin when implemented into your routine. Add this to your facial cleansers and toners, or take a bath in a diluted version to soothe sunburned skin.
