The 5 Most Common Natural Skin Care Mistakes (And How To Avoid Them)

Posted by Team Lemyn on

When people first transition to natural skin care, it is common to jump right in and purchase many products to replace what they currently use. Sometimes this can cause you to make a common natural skin care mistake. Here is an overview of the 5 most common mistakes and ways to correct each one.

Using Face Oil Without Toner

Using a face oil can help you have the clear, beautiful, and hydrated complexion that you want. However, if you introduce an oil to your face, it is important that you also use natural cleansers and toners, too. Having too much oil on your face without balancing it out with a toner can lead to clogged pores and acne. This is exactly the opposite of the effects you want to see from a face oil.

Buying Random Individual Products

Not all products work well together, as one might try to reduce shine for those with oily or combination skin with one product and increase moisture and oil with another. Opting for natural skin care sets instead of purchasing individual products can ensure that you choose products that work well together, at least as you start to try new natural products. Plus, buying a skin care set allows you to save money over getting items individually.

One-Size-Fits-All Approach to Moisturizer

Every person’s skin is a little different. Natural moisturizers that work well for a friend or a YouTube influencer may or may not work well for you. It can help to really understand your skin type and needs before you shop for a natural moisturizer. Do you have oily skin? Do you have dry skin? What other skin concerns do you have? There is likely a natural moisturizer that addresses it.

Believing Everything Natural is Safe

Just because something is natural does not mean it is safe. Some ingredients found in beauty products aren’t good for you, even if the label says it is natural. This is why it is important to only purchase natural beauty products manufactured and sold from companies that you can trust. 

Only Switching Face Products

Many people start their journey toward natural skin care by starting with their face. However, your face is a small part of your body. While it matters what products you put on it, most of your skin isn’t on your face. It’s equally important to choose body lotions, soaps, and other products that you use on your entire body that are natural and healthy. This can mean choosing a natural foot scrub or exfoliant instead of the products you can purchase from the local drug or big box store.
