Which Ingredients Help Your Skin the Most?
It seems that everywhere you look these days, some “miracle” skin moisturizer is being touted as the next greatest thing. While there is no doubt that skin care treatments are evolving every single day, this doesn’t mean that older ingredients are any less effective. Below, we have listed some tried and true ingredients that we believe are essential for effective facial treatments.
- Tea Tree Oil: For hundreds of years, tea tree oil has been used by native Australians to treat breakouts, inflammation, and redness of the skin. Unlike more modern acne treatments that rely on harsh chemicals and acids, tea tree oil is an all natural, oil based substance that causes very few adverse reactions to the general populace. Tea tree oil works as a natural anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial facial treatment and, in our opinion, is one of the best ingredients to include in a facial mask.
- Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is one of the most versatile substances on earth. While its uses in foods and beverages has been noted for years, coconut oil is also an excellent option for skin treatments. This natural ingredient works to strengthen the underlying epidermal tissue of the human body, is excellent for removing dead skin cells, and contains antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Certain research has even begun to show that coconut oil may be an effective way to treat chronic skin conditions such as eczema and atopic dermatitis.
- Sea Salt: When it comes to skin treatments, doesn’t it make sense to use ingredients that are not only naturally found in the skin but also help to boost the skin’s natural health? Sea salt is full of minerals and nutrients such as magnesium, sodium, calcium, and potassium, many of which are already found in skin cells. Including seas salt in your facial treatment is a great way to boost your face’s natural health, balancing oil production and moisture levels of the skin.
