Taking an Alternative Approach to Skincare

If you know me, you'll know I love skincare - today I'm sharing a collaborative post on that very topic. Read and enjoy!

Many of us know the importance of caring for our skin. It’s not only something we do because it’s good to have soft, supple but durable skin, but also because breaching out in rashes, spots and other undesirable outburst is not something any of us wish to experience. Moreover, if you have sensitive skin, then this could even be considered healthcare to a degree, not just self-care.

Most of us know the basics of skincare - exfoliate your skin, shave with high quality razors after the skin has been steamed or warmed in the shower, moisturize correctly, and apply face masks if this is something you wish to do. This is a simplified look at the process, but it should be enough for most people.

But what if you wanted to take an alternate, or supplementary approach to skincare in kind? Perhaps you’re looking for a few new means to clear breakouts that keep occurring due to stress, or you just want to flip the script with something new, see what products are out there.

Let’s consider that, below:

CBD Oils & Creams

Cannabinoid oil can help you soothe yourself after a difficult day, or potentially settle your anxiety slightly before a big day. This positive supplement can be restorative to skin, which is why many CBD tonics currently exist, too. Perhaps you wish to try something a little newer, and to enjoy the fully natural isolates or full spectrum blends that even mainstream fashion brands are putting out now. Thanks to their completely natural hemp ingredients, it’s a good, vegan alternative to some of the products you might have been using.

Towels & Pillowcases

It might not be applying products to your face in order to improve your skin is always the default way to do to it. Taking an alternate approach to skincare might mean simply buying more pillowcases than you usually need, washing them through the week, and rotating them. It’s a little extra work, but in the long run it may mean you have a fresh piece of fabric to rest your head on each night. This can prevent the buildup of dirt and oils on your face, and that will make a difference. In the same way, clean towels can make a difference also.

Consider Your Diet

It’s good to consider your diet ahead of time, also. Our skin isn’t a separate organ from the rest of our body that we need to care for, it is us, and what we eat helps replace the cells that comprise it. For this reason, it’s always good to consider your diet, and how it might be affecting you. Greasy foods, high fat content, low proteins, high carbs, and no good, fresh vegetables can lead to poor looking skin, worse sleep, and overall poorer health. Your skin is often a reflection of your health, so don’t be afraid to try and make healthier decisions instead of paying for a new product.

With this advice, we hope you can take an alternate, but better, approach to skincare in the best way.
