Everything You Wanted To Know About Natural Skin Care

Lisa asks…Where can I find a website about “Naturella”? Also how effective is it?

Naturella is an everyday skincare cream which has natural skin lighteners to remove dark spots e.g. from acne etc. It was recommended by the pharmacist but I am trying to acquire more information about this product. Any info would be much appreciated? Of course, I did a google search before asking this. The product on displayed on the website is a totally different product

Admin answers:

Search Naturella Skin Care in a search engine and you should come across naturellaskin.com. This will have everything you need to know. Not sure how effective it is but it sounds good. Hope this helps.

Linda asks…I Need a New Skin Care Line?

I’m in need of a new skincare line. What used to work for me was using Shiseido foaming cleanser and dabbing on Avene for blemishes and spots, it’s a sensitive skincare line from Paris.

Before, I was just recovering from a huge breakout which left me with scarring and took me a LONG time for them to fade and now I’m back to breaking out again and popping, and I don’t know how to control it. I’ve gone back to prescribing to a cream that works for me but is there a natural skincare line that’s effective and reasonably priced? i just saw the Suki Naturals line but the prices are nuts. Testimonials would be great and on where I can get it. Thanks, I am desperate for your help!

Not sure how much you want to spend but you can receive 35% off on all products when you join as a wholesaler buyer or buy retail price with Arbonne. Their products do work and I know everyone is different but doesn’t hurt compare to what you are currently using. The products are formulated in Switzerland and made in the USA. You can try Arbonne Clear Advantage System (4 steps: wash, toner, lotion and skin support) this really works as this line helped my friend clear up her acne in a couple of weeks.

The products are:

  • botanically based
  • pH correct – skin care of 5.5 ensures max. Benefit
  • hypoallergenic
  • dermatologist tested
  • never tested on animals
  • formulated without animal products or by-products
  • formulated without mineral: occlusive oil can interfere with skin functions as well as advanced delivery systems
  • formulated without dyes or chemical fragrances

Did you know “Peppermint” helps to open pores and allows them to be cleansed from the inside? This means pores appear to be smaller giving you a more youthful appearance. Check out the website for more amazing products: www.arbonne.ca and you can also see the before and after pics too. If you are interested in these products or would like more info please e-mail and i will be happy to help you.

Sonya asks…This is a three-parter…Are many of you aware of toxins and carcinogens present in most lotions, make-up, creams and other skincare products?

Secondly… If you had an option to use a skin-care product that was 100% completely natural, would you use it? Even if it costs slightly more/less?

And lastly, how much does the average person spend on skincare products each month?

Thanks for the info, I’m looking into this subject and trying to find out the general populations opinion on the matter. Did you know that here in the United States of America, there are 7 chemicals that have been outlawed for use in skin-care products because of their links to cancer?

And did you know that in Europe there are over 1,000 chemicals banned for the same exact reason?

Admin answers:

Hi. I totally agree, most commercial skin care brands are a cocktail of petrochemical ingredients. One way of ensuring that skin care products are free from suspect chemical is to only buy products that have organic certification. So what do you need to look for when shopping for organic skincare and what should you avoid?

Look for products that:

  • Are certified by The National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA) or by Australian Certified Organic (ACO).
  • Have natural products in their ingredients lists
  • Use natural preservatives like tea tree oil, or a combination of various essential oils that have antimicrobial activity (eg lavender, lemon, rose, rosemary, sage, sandalwood), grape seed extract or honey
  • Are Australian made as Australia has stringent organic standards.

Avoid products that:

  • Have the word “organic” or “natural” in their brand name but don’t have organic certification.
  • Have lots of chemical sounding names in the ingredients list that contain petrochemicals, parabens, or sulphates
  • Have a look at my website where I cover of lots of issues around natural & organics skn care, haircare & cosmetics

Hope this helps, Sonya.

Sharon asks…Is this a good skin care routine. I only do this at night, every night?

  • Clean my face (Clean & Clear Sensitive Skin Cream Cleanser)
  • Tone my face (Olay Refreshing Toner Astringent)
  • Moisturize my face (Olay Complete Sensitive Skin SPF15 lotion that is light and non-greasy)
  • Soothe my face (Suave Advanced Therapy Natural Oatmeal Moisturizer that heals and protects skin)

Admin answers:

It is important to wash your face every morning and evening. Make sure you are using products that are pH correct and do not strip the skin as you want to preserve the acid mantle on your face (it helps to fight off bacteria).

A good skin care regimen should consist of the following:

  • a wash–to cleanse
  • a toner–to restore the pH level and firm and tone
  • an eye cream
  • and moisturizer–one with SPF for day

Look for products that do not contain any animal by-products (like lanolin or talloate) or mineral oil as that will clog your skin and cause breakouts.

Washing your face in the evening is extremely important too as you need to rid your face of the dirt of the day and allow your skin to repair and for the cells to recover from free radical damage, etc…
