Some skincare treatments can be invasive, harsh, and require a lot of time for healing and recovery. A more holistic approach may help you manage your skin concerns with natural ingredients and techniques that work synergistically with your biology to reveal radiant, glowing skin.
It’s easier than you may think to build a holistic skincare routine and even target issues like excess oil, uneven skin tone, and rough skin texture. First, it’s essential to understand your skin from the inside out.
What Are the Basics of Your Skin?
The skin is the body’s largest organ and is incredibly resilient - it can even renew itself. As old, dead skin cells are pushed to the epidermis, new skin is made beneath it. This regeneration cycle and a healthy skin barrier keep skin healthy and protected from external aggressors. Skin regeneration slows with age, leading to uneven skin texture and tone.
The skin barrier is the outermost layer of skin covered in a layer of healthy microflora, or good bacteria. This bacteria gives your skin its pH balance and helps the skin stay firm and protected.
Proteins like collagen and elastin are important for skin structures that may help support the skin. With age, protein production in the skin slows, and the muscles of the face (like the muscles in the rest of your body) begin to lose volume and atrophy.
Changes in Skin
With age, the skin may lose its resiliency, appear to sag, and develop fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, you might even begin noticing breakouts, uneven skin tone, or a rough skin texture. A good solution is to adopt a natural skincare routine which may help address these issues without invasive treatments or harsh chemicals.
How To Build a Daily Routine for Natural Skincare
Building a natural, holistic skincare routine can be challenging because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate claims about products being ‘clean,’ ‘natural,’ or ‘organic.’ That being the case, you can use a few tips and tricks in your own research to help find effective, natural skincare products.
Less Is More
Look for less ingredients. Specifically, look for products that don’t contain parabens, chemical compounds frequently used as preservatives. NuFACE Skin Care is paraben-free and focuses primarily on incorporating ionized glacial water and ingredients that work for a variety of skin types (even sensitive skin) - like hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to support skin plumping and soothing.
Avoid Harsh Cleansers
Harsh cleansers can include ingredients that strip the skin of its natural moisture levels and tamper with the pH balance of the skin barrier. While cleansing is the first step in any great skincare routine, a mild cleanser that hydrates the skin is a better fit for a natural skincare routine.
Treat Skin Concerns With Non-Invasive Methods
There are numerous ways to manage skin issues that don’t involve harsh chemicals, a small fortune in fees, or a lot of downtime for recovery and healing. Microcurrent therapy, for instance, is one solution that aims at targeting the skin and underlying facial structures by mimicking the body’s natural ionic flow.
With these tips, you can quickly build a daily skin regimen with natural skin care products and techniques to restore healthy, glowing skin.
How To Find the Best Natural Skincare
It’s a broad market and finding products with natural ingredients and holistic therapies in one place may seem challenging. NuFACE takes the guesswork out of it. NuFACE skincare products are formulated with aesthetician-recommended ingredients that support the natural balance and structure of the skin. Here’s how it works.
Gently cleansing skin will help support your skin barrier and ensure microcurrent therapy works properly.
NuFACE Prep-N-Glow® Facial Wipes are convenient cleansing towelettes that do double duty. One side gently removes impurities, oil, and makeup, and the other gently exfoliates to polish the skin. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in the body that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, this cleanser works for oily skin types, combination skin, and dry skin types alike, supporting sebum balance and helps keep your skin adequately hydrated.
2. Choose Your Serum Wisely
Serums are essential for addressing skin issues like fine lines, wrinkles, loss of resilience, dryness, and dull, uneven skin tone. Unfortunately, some serums contain ingredients you don’t want to put near your skin.
NuFACE offers clean serums that target some of the most common skin concerns:
- Brighter skin tone: A lackluster skin tone can be frustrating, but there are natural solutions to help brighten the skin and bring back the balance. Vitamin C and niacinamide (vitamin B3) work to reveal brighter-looking skin. You can find it in the NuFACE Super Vita-C Booster Serum.
- Protection from external stressors: Antioxidants protect the skin from external aggressors like UV rays, pollution, and cigarette smoke. Plant botanicals like carnosine and edelweiss flowers help tone and tighten the skin’s appearance. Find both in the NuFACE Super Antioxidant Booster Serum.
- Skin volume and radiance: Losing volume and radiance in your skin can be a natural effect of aging. Still, you can draw attention away from those concerns by refining them with natural ingredients like plumping peptides and plant botanicals. NuFACE combines them both in Super Peptide Booster Serum.
You can use these three serums interchangeably based on your skin’s needs or combine them for a tailored skincare experience.
3. Treat With Care
If the invasive options you’re familiar with aren’t the solutions you’d like to pursue for managing fine lines, wrinkles, and skin resilience, microcurrent therapy is your go-to. Microcurrent therapy uses low-level electrical currents to help tone, lift, and contour the skin - quickly, painlessly, and without downtime.
NuFACE Microcurrent Devices are FDA-cleared to be safe and effective and are aesthetician-created. These devices mimic the body’s natural ionic flow to create a more sculpted, lifted appearance while blurring fine lines and wrinkles to restore a youthful appearance naturally.
Skincare That Works
While switching to a holistic skincare routine may be challenging, there are tricks to finding natural products that work for you. Look for products that have fewer ingredients to address your skin concerns, and steer clear of harsh formulas that could strip skin. When it comes to tools and procedures, going under the knife isn’t the only option. With a daily skincare routine and a few minutes each day, achieving a natural lift, firm, and smooth skin is possible with NuFACE Microcurrent Devices
