After many months of slowly switching over to a more natural skin care routine, I have finally found one that works pretty well, so I thought I would share! I have combination skin, it can get a little oily around my hair line, and dry around my nose. With a little testing, and trial and error, I found some good products that are relatively cheap.
Makeup Removal- I shower at the end of the day, and the first thing I do is remove all of my makeup (aka, whatever is left after it wore off throughout the day). I use a little bit of coconut oil for this. I just put a little bit on a cotton ball and gently rub it over my eyelids/brows/lashes. It works very well!
Face Wash- I either wash with a tiny bit of the lavender Castile soap, or with plain ol' baking soda.
Face Scrub- I tend to use this mostly in the morning, but sometimes I will use this coffee ground + cocoa scrub at night if I forget to in the morning. I use this about 2-3 times per week.
Toner- I use this apple cider vinegar toner that I make myself. Cheap, easy, and it works wonders.
Acne Treatment- For zits (yeah, I still get those) I dab a bit of tea tree oil on problem spots. The zit will dry up, usually pretty quickly.
Moisturizer- I put a small amount of coconut oil on my face for a moisturizer, if need be. It is a super light oil, so it doesn't leave my face feel coated at all. Sometimes I just dab a little on the dry spots, and that is it.
Under Eye Care- This is the only product that I haven't done a DIY on yet, mostly because I really love this stuff. It is Burt's Bees Royal Jelly Eye Cream. I can't even remember when I bought this, because a little bit goes a long way, and I have had this tiny jar for ages. It is probably expired for all I know, but whateves. It works great.
