5 Natural Ingredients for Healthy and Nourished Skin

If you check the skincare aisles in your favorite drugstore, you’re going to see a ton of products with unfamiliar ingredients. Because of this, a lot of people are becoming increasingly skeptical and conscious of what they put on their skin.

As an alternative to the long list of chemicals that make up your typical skincare product, you can choose skincare essentials that are formulated with effective natural ingredients. So, let’s take a look at five natural skincare ingredients that can keep your skin healthy and nourished.

1. Seaweed

Seaweed extract is an incredible natural ingredient if you’re looking to hydrate and exfoliate your skin. Thanks to its dense concentration of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and lipids, skincare products that contain seaweed extract can help remove your blemishes while keeping your skin supple and soft. In a previous post on ‘Why You Should Give Seaweed a Chance’, we also mentioned that seaweed is full of humectants, which allows it to provide moisture for your skin. You can find seaweed extract in a variety of skincare products, such as toners, cleansers, moisturizers, and serums.

2. Coconut Oil⁠

Another skincare ingredient that is incredibly versatile and beneficial for your skin is coconut oil. This incredible natural skincare ingredient’s benefits include: sloughing off dead skin cells, strengthening your underlying epidermal tissue, and fighting chronic skincare diseases. In addition, a SymptomFind post on coconut oil details how it can help tighten your skin while also being great for hair health. This makes it perfect for those who are concerned with fine lines and loose skin, whether it's on their face or scalp. While there are plenty of skincare products that contain coconut oil, you can also lather unrefined coconut oil on your skin to reap its benefits.

3. Avocado

Everybody loves the buttery and fatty avocado fruit. Aside from being the perfect topping for your morning toast, avocados are also packed full of vitamins A, E, and D, which can treat your age spots, smooth your sunburned skin, and even boost your body’s production of collagen. Moreover, skincare products that contain avocado oil or extract can reduce inflammation, which makes it the perfect natural ingredient for skin issues such as eczema. A post on beauty platform Byrdie notes that if you want a quick hydrating pick-me-up for your skin, be sure to pick up a product formulated with avocado oil. 

4. Bearberries

Bearberries are a species of dwarf shrubs that are mostly found in North America, Asia, and Europe. The extract from its fruit is loaded with the antioxidant berberine. When added to skincare products, berberine can help slow down the signs of aging. This is why many dermatologists regard bearberry extract as a natural alternative to hydroquinone, which is a harsh skin-lightening agent. Common skincare products that contain bearberry extract include moisturizers, serums, and lotions.

5. Rose Water

If you’re looking for a natural skincare ingredient that can help you keep acne at bay, as well as soothe irritated skin, you’re going to love rose water. Rose water contains a lot of vitamins and antioxidants that give it its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. For this reason, using products that contain rosewater can help kill acne-causing bacteria and microbes on your skin. Aside from that, rose water can also soften, rejuvenate, and tone your skin to give it a natural glow. Pinkvilla notes that the best way to reap the benefits of rose water is by using a facial spray and spritzing it on your skin before putting on your moisturizer.
