10 Natural Skin-Saving Beauty Secrets

  • Nov 4, 2009
  • by
Everyone has products that they swear by - this is my list of daily products that keep my skin, face, hair, and body feeling healthy. I may not have the best skin out there, but as long as it feels the best it can be, I can't complain!
Jason Vitamin E Oil
My skin has never really been *awful* but it has it's moments of flaring up. To help heal my skin I typically apply Vitamin E oil before bed. Most people know of Vitamin E as a fix for scars and stretch marks, but it's also a great moisturizer! It makes my skin soft, removes redness, and of course helps eliminate any scarring from breakouts. I only buy it in it's pure form - I don't like any other oils mixed in. It's a bit sticky but once you rub it in it's not so bad. I swear by it!!
Queen Helene Natural Facial Apricot Scrub
I love exfoliating my face. I once heard that exfoliation is the best thing you can do to get glowing skin because it helps regenerate new skin growth. Regardless, I love the way my skin feels after exfoliating. This scrub is all-natural and smells delicious.
ZuZu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner
One of those makeup products I just can't live without. Also all-natural. Read my full review here!
See the full review, "Makeup I can feel good about!".
Virgin Coconut Oil
I love this stuff. It has saved my skin during the driest times of year and I can't get enough. Read my full review here!

Alba Botanica Lip Gloss, Coconut Cream
I'm not so into wearing lipstick or lipgloss on my lips - what is the POINT if it doesn't moisturize? So I found this natural lip gloss and love it - it smells good enough to eat, gives my lips a glossy shine, and conditions to boot!
Benefit Cosmetics Benetint
A great product. Read my full review here!

*Note: The natural qualities of the product are up for debate. Until I get to poke around in their factory, I'm still going to use it :)

BASS Combination Bristle Brush
I have curly hair so most of the time it is more damaging to brush my hair than it is to not....but when I do, I love using this brush. It's got both wild boar bristles as well as regular bristles so your hair is shiny and soft as well as detangled.
Tweezerman Slant Tweezer
Hands down the best Tweezers out there. Period. They are expensive, but it's worth it because they come with a guarantee AND you can send their products back for a free sharpening when they stop plucking as well as they should!
Water is the best thing on earth, no lie. Drinking tons of water is beneficial in so many ways, not just for your skin. I drink more water than I know what to do with myself, and I really think it's improved my quality of life tenfold!
I love cashews (and most other nuts). Not only do they taste great but they also are a great source of "good fats" . I am convinced that eating good fat helps your skin (as well as your health)!

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

Love this list! My mom used to use Vitamin E capsules on her face regularly...I think I may have to be a chip off the ol' block and use vitamin E!

This Midwest raised boy will neither confirm nor deny that he might try a couple of these products. I mean, what's the harm in eating some cashews? :) Actually, I might try that vitamin E oil as I have dry skin which also gets sensitive when I shave. Shhhh...don't tell anyone back in Michigan!

I had no idea that Queen Helene made facial products, too. I'm going to have to check out that Vitamin B Oil and the coconut oil. Thanks for the awesome list! :)

By the way, I totally recommend this Burt's Bee Orange Essense Facial Cleanser!  Cleanses, moisturizes, and is all natural! :)
