Care For Common Skin Issues Care For Common Skin Issues Care For Common Skin Issues

Humans are a very diverse species. There are so many ways we are different from each other and an infinite number of ways to understand and address those issues.

One thing about us that is extremely interesting to me is how many different issues we have with caring for our facial skin. I didn’t realize until I got older myself and started having skin issues (resulting in researching the topic and reading about other women’s perspectives) how many different kinds of products there are and how many services can be utilized. It’s pretty mind boggling, honestly.

So, I won’t try to tell you which products are the best for each skin issue. You will have to do the research on different products for yourself based on your individual needs. My purpose here is to provide information on a few products that are new to me that you may be interested in looking into for your own personal use.

Easy Skin Care Tips To Try At Any Age

Give yourself some Protection from the Sun

One of the best things that you can do to protect yourself from the sun is to wear high-quality sunscreen. When you spend a lot of time in the sun, this can lead to wrinkles, age spots, and other skin related problems. You may even find that your risk of skin cancer increases as well, and this is the last thing that you want.

Healthy Skin Starts With Healthy Foods

Nutrition is very important for your health. If you have an unhealthy diet, then this can seriously damage your metabolism and you may even find that you gain weight too. One thing that a lot of people overlook is the effect that eating poor quality food can have on your skin. Find out how healthy skin starts with healthy foods.

Healthy Skin Starts With Healthy Foods

Fatty Fish

Fish such as mackerel and even salmon are brilliant foods if you want to have healthy skin. They are a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids and this is very important if you want to maintain the health of your skin. The main benefit of Omega 3 is that it helps you to keep your skin thick, moisturised and supple too. If you have an Omega 3 deficiency then this can cause you to experience dry skin and this is the last thing that you need when you are trying so hard to look after your appearance. Of course, another thing that you should know about Omega 3 is that it can help you to reduce skin inflammation such as acne and redness too.

Getting To Grips With Your Own Skincare

Skincare is a hugely important part of looking your best, and it is also a central concern if you are hoping to be as healthy as possible too. The better that you take care of your skin, the more likely it is that you are taking care of the rest of you. There is also something to be said for how the improvement that you see in the mirror as a result of this can make you much more likely to look after yourself in several other ways as a result. So you can see that a simple focus on something like skincare can be all that you need to do in order to live something of a better life in these ways at least. It’s time to focus on getting to grips with your own skincare!

Getting To Grips With Your Own Skincare

All that is well and good, but how are you supposed to actually improve your skincare, and what kind of processes should you consider in order to make sure that you are doing it right? Skincare can actually be a surprisingly difficult process to follow well, and you will probably find that you need to work on improving it many times before you really get to grips with it. Nonetheless, that is exactly what we are going to help you with here – so let’s take a look at skincare in a little more detail.

We Tried Three Natural Skincare Lines And We Think You’ll Love Them All

Three different skincare lines to help you target your problem areas

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ve talked many times about my skincare woes. Unfortunately, I am a literal oil slick and I have hormonal acne. Any slight mishap in the ingredients in my skin care routine and I have painful, red cysts popping up. Frequently, I look for skincare lines that have natural ingredients.

Recently, I tried three different skincare lines. Most Noteworthy, each line aims to deep clean pores while also being gentle on the skin. After trial and error, I have favorites from each of the skincare lines that I like and I wanted to share them all with my fellow oily peeps.

Clean Skincare That’s Affordable and Travel-Friendly

My ALCHEMY Skin Care Travel Mini Kit

Finding skincare that’s both travel-friendly and inexpensive is quite the challenge. However, it’s a challenge I’m ready for. While I’m not traveling anytime soon, I am moving. I have to pack everything up and can only use certain products, so it’s the perfect time to test out some travel-size products from My ALCHEMY Skincare.

About My ALCHEMY Skincare

My ALCHEMY Skincare is a cruelty-free and clean skincare brand that wants you to stay as young as you feel using products with healthy aging ingredients. They learned firsthand “the impact of self-care and nutrition on our bodies, both inside and out.” Inspired by cancer, the mother-daughter team had one goal in mind – “to offer every [BODY] knowledge to empower healthy choices as we strive to help you live your best life toxic-free.”

Products Sent

I was sent and able to test the Travel Mini [$65] kit. Perfect for traveling or when you’re in the middle of a move, and you don’t have a ton of space or everything readily available.

What’s inside the kit:

  • Wildcrafted Cleanser
  • Rose Hydrosol Spritzer
  • Illuminate Face Serum

Travel Mini Review

I recently decided to go solely cruelty-free and clean. I don’t believe in animal testing, there’s no need for it, and I will not use brands that still do this. This kit is nice. It truly is. I have crazy sensitive skin, so of course, I was a bit nervous to try everything. My skin reacted nicely. They don’t take up a lot of space on my bathroom skink, you don’t need to use a ton of products, and there are no horrible scents.

This kit is an excellent option if you’re looking to try a new brand, you want to go cruelty-free, or you are doing some traveling soon and want travel-friendly products. While I do like these products and didn’t have any issues, I’d recommend testing them out before you travel. It’s always best to know a product works for you before heading out on vacation.

Overall Thoughts

The price might seem high for a travel kit, but the quality is marvelous and well worth it. I’m always looking for great deals and ways to save money, but when it comes to skincare, I’ll spend the money if it’s amazing. And it is.

Skin Care From Start To Finish

Skin Care From Start To Finish-Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Serum and MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Skin Care From Start To Finish

Vitamin C plays an important role in human health, and now you can get it in a serum to apply moisture and antioxidants directly to your skin. Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Oil is a quick absorbing skin serum that helps to protect our largest organ from UV-B rays and can also help with issues such as hyperpigmentation and age spots. Anti-aging beauty products are always on my radar. None of us are getting younger, but we don’t have to just go with it.

Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Regenerative Oil

Even though it’s an oil, it absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and looking more fresh without leaving behind an oily residue. I am totally on board for this! I hate nothing more than a skin care product that I am constantly feeling like a film has been left behind that I can’t get rid of; I want it to go on and then forget about it. I like that it’s developed to work well on all skin types.

Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Regenerative Oil

I have very little time to spend on a daily skin care routine. What I like about Velvet Vitamin C Oil is that I can take a few drops and just smooth it into my skin after a shower and by the time I’m dressed and ready to apply what little makeup I do wear, my face is silky smooth and easy to finish off with a little concealer, tinted lip gloss, and mascara.

Another Equal By Nature product that I’m really keep to try soon is their Sweet Plum Oil. This neat little multi-tasker is great for moisturizing skin, hair, nails, and scalp. I am always looking for easy products I can use to smooth flyaway and frizz in my hair and apply to my nails and cuticles that at times like to shred like crazy. All hair types can benefit from the moisturizing benefits!

For a boost of moisture any time, anywhere I enjoy toting MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist in my purse. It’s made with Cactus Water, Hyaluronic Acid (to aid in skin moisturization and diminish the appearance of fine lines), Citystem™ Plant Stem cells (to strengthen skin hydration barrier, stimulate natural antioxidants, and help skin appear smooth and soft), and Niacinamide (vitamin B3) to improve complexion.

MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist

What you won’t find in this cruelty-free, vegan beauty mist:

Gluten

GMO

Parabens

Petroleum

Phthalates

Silicones

Sulfates

Ureas

Artificial Fragrances

Artificial Colors

It’s really easy to pull this out anytime my face feels dry or tight and spritz a bit on my skin. It provides soothing moisture in an instant no matter how busy my day gets. It’s an ultra light spray, developed to be used whenever the need arises, either under or over makeup. You can barely feel the tiny drops landing on your skin. I don’t even have to run my hand over my face to rub it in, the droplets are so fine.

I tried to get a picture of how fine the spray is, but I really couldn’t. The closest I could get is this one. If you look really close you can see a bit of the spray coming out of the nozzle, but the mist itself is so fine, that it’s really hard to see it.

MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist

I was already a MyChelle fan from using one of their facial exfoliant products; until my teenage daughter commandeered it, that is. Now when I want to use it I have to go to her bathroom! We also recently tried MyChelle’s Incredible Pumpkin Peel and Pumpkin Renew Cream, so definitely check out our thoughts on that!

As I age, my skincare needs change. It’s almost as though I finally find a great routine that works for me and my skin reaks havoc all over again. Hormones, stress, and even seasons play such a large part when it comes to healthy skin. So I find myself once again spending countless hours searching the internet for skin care regimen to suit my needs. The problem is, I am clueless on which products to use in conjunction with others or how to nourish my skin in a way that won’t need a change of routine a few months out. Oz Naturals, however, has catered the best skin care regiment for my skincare needs so I decided to put it to the test.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary

The beach is one of my very favorite places in the world to be. So, it should come as no surprise that when it comes to skin care products I love it when I find a quality line of lotions, bath products, and other personal care choices that not only nourish and care for my skin but also can transport me right down to the water’s edge with a breezy, tropical scent.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary - Nubian Heritage Mango Butter Collection
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Nubian Heritage is one of a few favorite brands when it comes to both keeping my skin looking and feeling great, as well as providing a nice variety of scents that I love. Our sense of smell is central to everything we do from preparing delicious meals to recalling nostalgic personal memories to promoting calm and relaxing atmospheric ambiance in our surroundings. It’s no wonder that companies that produce essential oils and diffusers, candles, potpourri, perfume and cologne, air fresheners, etc. are such a big business. We all use these products to invoke a response from within to find peace and calm in our lives.
