Let’s face it. As consumers, we have learned a lot about skincare and makeup items over the years and how certain ingredients can affect the products we put on our faces, bodies, and hair. Today, many people care about what goes into their beauty formulas, and most of us prefer natural products without potentially harmful additives like chemicals, preservatives, and dyes. It’s a natural beauty revolution, and we have the latest cool buys for 2020.
1. Black Clay
We’ve all been warned against using traditional bar soaps, especially when cleansing the face. Bar soaps are usually very drying, irritating and ineffective. However, there’s a new soap in town that happens to be bar-shaped, and it’s something you may want to consider.
Black clay facial soap is one of the hottest trends out there, and yes, it looks unusual as far as bar soap goes, but this interesting cleanser is the real deal.
The soap is made with clarifying black clay and dead sea mud. It’s also fortified with organic almond and avocado oils. The combination is excellent for soothing and nourishing your skin as it soaks up excess oil to keep breakouts away.
2. Aluminum-Free Charcoal
Charcoal has been at the forefront of the natural beauty movement for a few years now, and it keeps expanding its reach. Nope, we’re not referring to the summer barbecue charcoal you use for the grill.
This centers on activated charcoal, and now there’s one for your underarms in an effective charcoal deodorant that is aluminum and paraben-free.
Charcoal is excellent at drawing out impurities, toxins, and odor-causing bacteria.
3. Bakuchiol- Natural Retinol
A lot of us apply retinol-based products on our face and neck as a superb anti-aging formula, but now there is a natural form of retinol that is piquing interest.
It’s called bakuchiol, an extract found in the seeds and leaves of the babchi, a plant native to India. Look for the ingredient in skincare treatments you buy in 2020 because its gentle but potent properties are impressive.
Bakuchiol contains many of the same texture-improving benefits for your complexion without the sometimes drying or irritating side effects that retinol can cause.
4. Peptide Lip Balm
Pucker up, everyone. Now is the time to infuse your lips with the beauty power of Peptides.
Peptides are what help to tell out skin cells to turn over and produce new cells. This helps to keep our skin rejuvenating for longer and helps it to look younger. It helps collagen to continue to produce in our cells and will leave you with smooth kissable lips.
Definitely look for a peptide balm to try this year. You will be blown away by how soft your lips look and feel.
5. Chilean Soap Bark Extract
When it comes to a super clean face, hair and body, you need the right powerful but safe ingredients to do their job, get rid of grime and not strip the complexion, skin or scalp of their natural oils. That is what Chilean soap bark extract is effective at.
Look for this incredible extract present in new beauty products as it performs a wealth of good. Chilean soap bark extract creates a foamy lather, never inflames or irritates the skin or dries out the hair. When you combine apple oil and honeysuckle extract, you get an amazing all-in-one cleanser that is perfect for your face, body, and hair.
6. The Watermelon Infusion
If you enjoy eating the juicy summertime fruit, you may want to consider the beautiful benefits of watermelon in your hair care and face mask products. The fruit happens to naturally contain the four powerhouse antioxidants of A, B, C, and E.
To check if watermelon is present in the new beauty products you purchase, look for the words “Citrullus lanatu” printed on the ingredient label.
Clean beauty is something many of us are turning to because we don’t want to wonder what our favorite formulas contain. Ask most people you know, and they will probably say they would prefer beauty products without toxic ingredients. Natural is better.
