6 Natural Skincare Products for Acne-Prone Skin
If you have acne-prone skin, give these natural skincare products a try. They're soothing, gentle, and eco-friendly.
We all know that feeling of satisfaction when you get ready for bed and clean your face at the end of a long day. All the shine, dirt, makeup, and sweat are gone.
When we grab those skincare products, we don’t think much of it. But while they contain ingredients that may benefit your skin, they're not doing the environment any favors. Some products include exfoliating microbeads, preservatives such as BHA and BHT, and synthetic fragrances—all things that aren't exactly planet-friendly.
There are ways to make sure your skin and the environment can glow simultaneously. Many companies have started producing 100% natural products for acne-prone skin that don't contain any of those detrimental ingredients.
There are tons of different products you can use to enhance your skincare routine and the environment, and we've listed a few of our favorites below.
