With nearly every new skincare brand on the market using words like clean, natural and nontoxic, it’s hard to determine which products you should spend your money on and which are best for you and your skin. I personally follow a clean, natural skincare routine, because after finding out that what you put on your face enters your blood stream, I prefer not to mess with toxins.
I also have fairly resilient combination skin and have never suffered immensely with acne, eczema or psoriasis, and therefore haven’t had to turn to harsher, more potent ingredients that may not be natural. And while I am definitely no dermatologist or skincare expert, as a beauty editor who plays around with a lot of new products, I do know what works for my skin. If you have combination skin and are looking for some new product recommendations or even a whole new natural skincare routine, you’ve come to the right place.
But before I get into my personal natural skincare routine, I want to set the record straight about some of the terms I mentioned above. I reached out to Hillary Peterson, founder of True Botanicals, a MADE SAFE–certified skincare line that uses only the safest, cleanest ingredients found in nature. Here’s what she had to say.
