Healthy and glowing skin starts with a good skincare routine, and one of its most crucial steps is cleansing. However, not all cleansers are created equal. Many commercial cleansers contain harsh chemicals that can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated.
At Pelle Naturale our cleanser is made with rosehip seed oil and contains both Vitamin C and A. This combination supports your skins natural collagen production whilst also being a gentle and calming daily use product. Most of all this the Pelle Naturale rosehip cleanser is a sulfate, paraben and gluten free product. When looking for a natural cleanser that will help to maintain and improve your skin quality you should also look for one that has low toxins to be sure it will not cause any lasting damage. And also check out that a product has the added bonuses of being vegan and cruelty free.
However much I love a Pelle Naturale product I don’t want to be the gate keeper of other amazing natural skincare solutions that you may have in your home right now. Natural skincare cleansers that you can find in many homes and stores are gentle on your skin while also effectively removing dirt, makeup, and impurities. In this blog, we'll explore the top 10 natural skincare cleansers that will leave your skin refreshed, rejuvenated, and radiant.
1. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a versatile natural cleanser. Of course, it’s delicious in a lot of cooking but it can also be used on your skin for its moisturizing properties that help dissolve makeup and impurities without over-drying the skin. It also contains lauric acid, which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Natural and pure honey is a fantastic natural cleanser and humectant. It’s also a super healthy sweet treat, so if you don’t already have some in your home this is an additional reason to buy some. Honey not only removes impurities but also locks in moisture, making it suitable for all skin types, also its antimicrobial properties can help with acne-prone skin.
3. Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is such a great natural skincare product because it closely resembles our skin's natural sebum, making it an excellent choice for cleansing. This one is harder to find in local stores but if you can find some it will effectively remove dirt and makeup while balancing oil production and preventing breakouts.
4. Olive Oil
Olive oil has been used for millennia in both food and skincare because of its amazing health benefits. If you’re not using it in your daily cooking, you absolutely should be and then you could also use it in your day to day skincare routine. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and vitamins, making it a nourishing cleanser for dry and sensitive skin. It dissolves makeup and debris, leaving your skin soft and hydrated.
5. Aloe Vera
Now this one could be yours for almost free. Sure you can buy aloe vera gel but you can also grow it and have your own supply for $0. Aloe vera gel is known for its soothing and healing properties. It's perfect for sensitive and sunburned skin as it cleanses gently while reducing redness and inflammation.
6. Castile Soap
Castile soap is typically made from olive oil and is a natural, all-purpose cleanser. It's gentle enough for the face but can also be used as a body wash or even a household cleaner.
7. Green Tea
Green tea makes for a healthy and refreshing alternative to coffee. However, it doesn’t have to only be a hot drink as it is packed with antioxidants that help fight free radicals and soothe inflammation in your skin. When brewed green tea can be used in a daily skincare routine as a cleanser and is especially good for oily or acne-prone skin.
Store bought plain and unsweetened natural yogurt has many health benefits for both your digestion and your skin. Yogurt contains lactic acid, which is a natural exfoliant. When used as a cleanser it can gently remove dead skin cells and impurities, leaving your skin smooth and refreshed.
Many skincare products contain cucumber as it is incredibly hydrating and refreshing. Using slices of fresh cucumber on your face is great for cleansing and soothing irritated or inflamed skin. You can also blend cucumber and apply it as a liquid cleanser or toner. Cucumber can only be used in your skincare routine when it is absolutely fresh, do not try to store it.
10. Clay Cleansers (Kaolin, Bentonite, Rhassoul)
Clay cleansers are excellent for deep cleansing and detoxifying the skin. Different types of clay cater to various skin concerns. Kaolin is gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, while bentonite is more potent and ideal for oily or acne-prone skin.
Using natural skincare cleansers is simple. Here is some general step-by-step advice on how to use natural produce cleansers:
1. Start with clean hands: Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your face to avoid transferring dirt and bacteria. Applying anything to your face with unclean hands can increase your chances of developing acne or other blemishes.
2. Remove makeup: If you're wearing makeup, use a gentle makeup remover or one of the natural cleansers listed above to dissolve it.
3. Apply the cleanser: Take a small amount of your chosen natural cleanser and gently massage it onto your damp face and neck using circular motions.
4. Rinse thoroughly: Use lukewarm water to rinse off the cleanser, making sure to remove all residue.
5. Apply your second cleanser: Take a small amount of Pelle Naturale rosehip radiance cleanser and apply to your face whilst damp. This is an important step as with an FDA approved skincare brand you will be certain to have both cleansed and removed all makeup residue.
6. Rinse thoroughly: Use lukewarm water to rinse off the cleanser, making sure to remove all residue.
7. Pat dry: After rinsing, gently pat your face dry with a clean, soft towel. Avoid rubbing your skin, as it can cause irritation.
Natural skincare cleansers are a luxurious way to pamper your skin while avoiding harsh chemicals. Whether you have dry, sensitive, or oily skin, there's a natural cleanser suitable for your needs. Experiment with different options to find the one that works best for your skin type and enjoy the benefits of radiant, healthy-looking skin, the natural way.
