BEST NATURAL SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR GLOWING SKIN
Because #lookgoodfeelgood Matters
By Shana Lynn Yao
Glowing skin. While most entrepreneurs have money and appearing on Oprah at the top of their goal lists, glowing skin is at the top of mine.
If you were blessed with great skin from birth, lucky you. I'm sure I had baby soft skin when I was born, but time, too much sun, a colorectal health issue and well, STRESS in the last year started to take it's toll...on my face. A few months ago, my face filled with cystic acne I haven't h since I was a teenager and the wrinkles that are a part of being FIFTY this year were scarring my face and my self esteem.
An while that may sound vein, great. I'm vein! I'm a girl and #lookgoodfeelgood is not just a hashtag that gets a ton of followers on Instagram, it affects your confidence, your self esteem and THAT affects your HEALTH.
As I just mentioned, I have a health condition. And with anything, to fix that, it's not just an inside job. What you see becomes who you think you are. And your thoughts create who you think you are (your confidence) and it affects the actions you take because of that, which includes what you eat, what you buy and who you surround yourself with. And the cycle just cycles. So if you are in a downward spiral, the last place it will manifest is on the outside - hence my lack of glowing skin.
Once I saw the problem, it no longer became a "someday" goal for me. The truth is, inside I was hating my life and had to look at everything in my life and address it. And that was when my amazing "best life" journey began. All because of first tackling something obvious and easy - committing to a better skin care routine. Who knew that would lead to me taking better care of myself, finding my value again and then taking steps to actually upgrade my confidence, my life, and my happiness.
Lucky for my glowing skin and for you, because of this, I've hacked together a multi-level process to get closer to achieving my skincare goals.
Here are the best all natural skincare products I have found (so far) that will help you in your natural skin care routine AND possibly help you get started living your best badass business and life.
Natural Skin Care Products For Glowing Skin
1. EVANHEALY ROSE PETAL FACIAL TONIC
Do you need a face tonic? YES! I spray this refreshing tonic on my skin after I shower, when I wash my face, after I put my makeup on (to set it), when I get home after a long day - and it not only smells AMAZING, it leaves my skin feeling softer immediately, radiant, and well, glowing! It's all natural and plant based, and it's designed to balance your skin. Whether your skin is dry, oily or combination - of all of the different plant based and natural tonics on the market, this one is the BEST I've tried. #obsessed $27 - BUY HERE
2. MyCHELLE FRUIT ENZYME CLEANSER
This is hands down the best cleanser I've used for combination skin. First of all, the MyChelle brand is EWG Verified - This product goes above and beyond its green score in EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. (you can enter any skin care brand in this database and see how it ranks and if it's "all natural" claims are real).
Second of all, it has multi-fruit Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) which unclog and purify pores, and is said to improve skin texture.
ALL Mychelle products in fact are: Vegan; made without GMO, Gluten, Parabens, Petroleum, Phthalates, Silicones, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances, and Artificial Colors. Cruelty-free.
Personally, I do like the brand but I DID find a better moisturizer for the price (see below). But all in all, this cleanser and the brand ROCKS. You can buy it on Amazon or Whole foods (about $16) BUY HERE
3. MyCHELLE FABULOUS EYE CREAM
Whoa...as I said, I'm going to be FIFTY this year and whether you are 25 or 80, eye cream is the #1 product you need to start using NOW. Saggy eyes is not just for "old people"!
I have tried A LOT of eye creams and let's just say, there IS a difference between all natural and those that are filled with chemicals. Eye creams at department stores are EXPENSIVE. And not only that, but they have damaging chemicals and NONE of them - including the UBER expensive brand La Mer - performs as well as the Mychelle Fabulous Eye cream.
It's lightweight but moisturizing enough that (literally), my tiny fine lines disappear! It not only contains STEM CELLS but also L-Ascorbic Acid, Plant Stem Cells, and Hyaluronic Acid which "combats the visible signs of aging" and has other good stuff like Bilberry, Gotu Kola, and Cucumber Extracts sthat help protect you from pollution and the environment.
If you get ONE product, get this one. It's well, FABULOUS (haha). ($16) BUY HERE
4. SIBU SEABERRY THERAPY FACE CREAM
WHAT??? You don't have time for sunscreen? You don't want to clog your pores? You'll worry about it later???
Did you know that the sun is one of the primary reasons our skin ages? And the truth is, I didn't start seeing "age spots" until this year. Yes, I was once 25 too - so don't think it's too early to start protecting your skin. As I said before, I'm VEIN so I'm not going to recommend something that is going to cause clogged pores or make your makeup look bad :)
This is hands down the BEST sunscreen I've EVER used. It's light, it's MATTE, and absorbs into my skin. You won't even know you're wearing it. Put it on your face, your arms, your body. USE IT. Saggy old skin SUCKS. Plus, it's only $15! BUY HERE
And that's it! Actually, achieving glowing skin and better health is a multi-level process. But know that it IS possible and as I mentioned in another article, I manifested my following on Instagram using this as part of my strategy. It's called LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE OUT LOUD.
So I want to hear, what are you using to make sure your skin is radiant and glowing and showing yourself that you are taking great care of yourself?
