transitioning to natural skincare October 06 2020, 0 Comments
Natural skincare is becoming more and more popular, which is definitely something to get excited about! However, making the switch can still feel daunting. Where to begin? How do you know what products will be right for you?
Wildcraft was created with a mission to offer all natural skincare that is easy to use, effective and accessible to anyone who is looking for a healthier alternative. While making the transition can feel overwhelming and confusing for some, the benefits of doing so are tenfold. Everyone on our team is a tried and true natural skincare user, so we thought we’d pass along some of our advice to help you if and when you’re ready to give it a try.
Be patient / Don’t feel like you have to change everything all at once.
Adding one to a few new products at a time to your routine is the best way to get used to them, and to determine if they are the right fit for your skin. Just like with conventional products, it can take some trial and error to find exactly what you love and what works for you. Many people opt to replace their old products with natural ones as they finish them - this is also a less wasteful way to transition.
Do what works best for you. Incorporating natural products into your routine doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Over time you might switch entirely to natural, or you might hold on to some old conventional favourites. The choice is yours and you can feel good about it!
Enjoy the process.
Natural skincare is truly a joy to use and can make your morning and evening routine a beautiful and uplifting experience. Savour the new textures and consistencies and enjoy a bit of relaxation and stress-release. There’s nothing better than taking your time to massage an oil cleanser on your face, breathing in as you remove makeup after a long, hard day. The scents are all natural and can also act as aromatherapy. It’s really easy (and beneficial!) to build a routine with our step-by-step instructions that cater to every complexion. Whether your skin is dry, oily or combination, these guides will help you discover what works best for you.
Don’t expect natural products to be the same as conventional ones.
One of the many great things about natural skincare is its transparency. What you see is what you get. There are no hidden ingredients or hard to read (and understand) labels and you can rest assured and feel confident that the product is all natural and high quality. That being said, you will also notice that the feeling and performance of natural products can be completely different. Keep an open mind and you will be pleasantly surprised!
Read labels and ask questions.
If you are ever confused about what a product can do for your skin, all of the answers are in the list of ingredients. Over time you will begin to recognize the heavy hitters and will be able to identify which ones you want to add to your routine, according to your skin type. Do your research and consult friends or websites that you trust. Remember that everyone’s skin and body is different. Trust your intuition, and, if ever in doubt, seek advice. If you still have questions, book a consultation! One of our team members is available every Thursday from 11 AM - 2 PM to answer all of your natural skincare queries.
