Everyone wants soft skin that feels as good as it looks. But you probably don’t want tons of chemicals going into your body in the process, do you? When you think about it, a lot of what you put on your skin is absorbed into the bloodstream. If you are using products that are made with tons of chemicals, your body is absorbing these chemicals! That is why I like to keep with a natural skin care routine. This includes any products I use on my face.
Recently I got to try some Neutrogena Naturals facial products and I fell in love with them. When I use them, the skin on my face feels as good as it looks and I know that I am not absorbing a bunch of chemicals through my skin. These 3 products now make up my daily natural skin care routine. I’m sure that when you try them, they will definitely become a part of your natural routine as well!
Tips from Kristen Bell
I’m not alone in wanting to keep to a more natural and eco-friendly skin care routine. Here is what actress Kristen Bell recently told Instyle.com, “The shifts I’ve made towards being more eco-friendly aren’t monumental, and they don’t have to be a total overhaul. It shouldn’t scare people. For example, I try to limit my showers to 3 minutes; one long song and you’re done. I do 4 things in the shower: I use soap, shampoo, conditioner, and brush my teeth. Most of the time, it’s all done simultaneously!”
It turns out that Kristen Bell also uses the Neutrogena Naturals product line. She told PopSugar.com that she likes “the Neutrogena Naturals line because there’s a minimal amount of ingredients. It’s really pure and natural. I live by the Purifying Facial Cleanser—I use it every single night. I use it either with my fingertips or a little wooden natural bristle and then I use the Multivitamin Nourishing Moisturizer. And that’s pretty much it.”
Natural skin care is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Natural skin care step 1: Remove makeup
Before washing my face, I always remove any makeup from the day. I don’t wear much, but what I do wear is usually waterproof and can be somewhat difficult to remove. For my step 1, I use Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. These ultra-soft wipes are made from 97% naturally-derived cleansing ingredients and don’t contain any harsh chemical sulfates phthalates, parabens or unnecessary additives. I love that they don’t leave a greasy residue like some makeup removing wipes!
Natural skin care step 2: Cleanse
Even though I’ve removed my makeup, I still need to wash my face. Why? A good natural cleanser like Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser will remove any excess dirt and oil and will rinse clean without leaving behind a residue that could clog my pores. The Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser will remove 99% of dirt, oil, and impurities; plus it will detoxify my pores to help give me fresh, clear skin. Its naturally derived ingredients include coconut, corn, will bark and guar bean—love it!
Natural skin care step 3: Moisturize
For healthier, younger looking skin, you really need to moisturize after washing your face. A good natural moisturizer like Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer will replenish the nutrients your skin needs and provide continuous moisture. Plus, the Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer has been clinically proven to boost my skin’s defense against dullness and roughness. At my age, this is something I am really starting to desperately need!
Why do I use Neutrogena Naturals?
You probably noticed that for all 3 steps I use Neutrogena Naturals products available at Target. Why have these products replaced my usual skin care routine? Well, besides the reasons I listed above, I love how Neutrogena Naturals is committed to finding creative ways to reduce the environmental impact of their products. Here’s how:
- Their products are sold in renewable packaging! The folding cartons are made from 100% recycled paper and use 70% less water in processing than virgin paperboard.
- The Neutrogena Naturals website is 100% powered by nature! The site is housed on a Green Server—sun-fueled and wind-powered.
I feel great using products from such an environmentally-conscious brand! How about you? Have you tried the Neutrogena Naturals product line? What did you think?
