How your Skin Benefits from Natural Emollients

How your Skin Benefits from Natural Emollients

Just 1 mind-blowing reason why your skin needs Natural Emollients

This post is for the ladies who are skincare obsessed and have had so many trials and errors with natural emollients.

This post is for those experiencing breakouts due to hormonal imbalance.

And last, this is for the shy ones who have always struggled with acne and now experiencing aging.

It’s a well-known fact that thorough but gentle daily cleansing and moisturizing care helps your skin stay healthy. Quality skincare products, selected to suit your skin type and condition, can protect facial skin from harmful external influences such as the sun, hot or cold climates, and air pollution.

They can also soothe irritated skin, restore it to a healthy state and prevent skin diseases due to layers of natural emollients.

If you, too, tried sooooo many cleansers over the years that you don’t even think you could come up with a ballpark number, then stay with us.

Using natural emollients and having trouble with your own’s could be two different things.

And yet a little-known power of manuka cleansing power may help you with both.

Sebum – one of a kind natural emollient

Skin is essential for our general health and well-being. It is our first and best defense against:

Cold, heat, water loss, and radiation

As the outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum plays a significant role in protecting the body from the environment and limiting the amount of water lost from the epidermis.

This layer contains natural moisturizing factors – formed from stratum corneum oils, including lactic acid and urea. They bind water and help maintain skin elasticity, firmness, and flexibility. If these factors are consumed, the skin loses moisture. When the hydration levels of the stratum corneum fall below 8 to 10%, the skin becomes rough, dry, and prone to cracking.

In like manner, when you expose your skin to UV rays, the production of melanin in the basal layer increases, the skin thickens to protect itself.

Pressure, shock, and abrasion :

The epidermis re-forms the first layer of defense.

Fat cells in the subcutaneous tissue form a lining that acts as a suppressor, thus protecting the muscle tissue and fascia (fibrous tissue that surrounds the muscles) below.

When the skin is exposed to certain external stimuli, the stratum corneum thickens, such as when blisters form on the hands or feet exposed to constant rubbing.

Chemicals: Skin is not directly in contact with the outside world: in fact, it is covered with a protective film (hydrolipid film). It softens and protects the body from harmful alkaline chemicals.

Bacteria and viruses: The stratum corneum of the epidermis and its protective acidic coating form a barrier against bacteria and fungi. If something crosses this first line of defense, the skin’s immune system reacts.

Is cleansing cream good for the skin?

Cleansing creams are good for the skin, especially for ladies with sensitive or oily skin.

You see, sebaceous glands are located within the skin and are responsible for secreting an oily substance called sebum.

Sebum lubricates the skin, protecting it from drying out or becoming irritated. This oil, along with sweat, is secreted through the pores.

When this process goes smoothly, sebum not only lubricates your skin but also removes dead skin cells and other irritants from your pores.

However, when overactive sebaceous glands produce excess sebum, your pores can become clogged, leading to a host of skin imperfections.

So that is where facial completely clean cleanser comes in handy.

Natural emollients come with a variety of support for your skin

As an organ that does many things perfectly at once, the skin has many other roles essential to our health and well-being:

Temperature regulation: The skin sweats to cool the body and narrows the blood vessels in the dermis to retain heat.

Sensation control: Nerve endings in the skin make it sensitive to pressure, vibration, touch, pain, and temperature.

Regeneration: The skin can heal wounds.

Food source: Fat cells in the subcutaneous tissue serve as basic storage units for nutrients. When the body needs them, they enter the surrounding blood vessels and go where required.

Psychological role. One of the biggest reasons why you’re here. As a more visible indicator of health, the condition of our skin affects how we feel about ourselves and how others see us.

Can you use emollients on your face? What can be used as a natural emollient?

Natural emollients such as sweet almond cold-pressed oil, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, olive oil, hazelnut oil, avocado oil, safflower oil, apricot kernel oil, and natural waxes such as unrefined beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, and manuka honey, are a preferable alternative.

They do not restrict the skin’s breathing and leave your face completely clean.

But to use some of these, you first must clean your face.

Cleansing the skin is one of the most crucial beauty regimes often overlooked in the quest for younger-looking skin and clear complexion.

FACIAL CLEANSING & TONING

Why cleaning and toning?

An effective facial skin care routine begins with a thorough but gentle wash and toning to remove dirt, sweat, sebum, and makeup without drying out the skin.

Necessary face care ingredients are better absorbed when applied to clean skin.

Washing is vital for acne-prone skin because it helps maintain its natural healthy balance and supports biological regenerative processes.

How to cleanse and tone the skin

Step 1

Eye makeup remover:

To gently remove makeup from the lashes and the sensitive part around the eyes. The product for removing makeup from the eyes is best when applying it with a cotton swab that gently wipes the eye area.

Step 2

Dirt and oil remover:


Choose a cleanser that suits your skin type. For example, cleansing milk is best for skin prone to dryness.

Step 3

Tonic (natural emollient):


Toning removes traces of cleansers and refreshes the skin while restoring its natural pH value. The tonic is best applied with a cotton swab gently applied over the face.

It is best to rinse the cleansing gels thoroughly with lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water, especially on sensitive skin, as extreme temperatures can irritate.

Cleansing cream is applied and removed with a cotton swab and does not require water. However, it can be removed with lukewarm water if it suits you better.

Three-in-one products offer a practical combination of cleansers, tonics, and makeup removers.

HOW TO CHOOSE A CLEANSER AND TONIC

I never saw such a strong and unordinary human quality as intuition. And you ladies have plenty of it. So, listen to your mind and observe your body closely.

You will know which one to choose.

But, always remember that washing is a key first step in the daily routine: clean skin better absorbs the active ingredients found in care products.

But, there is one more important piece of advice, although it’s not for everyone.

When you find out how good washing with cold water is for the skin, you will immediately jump for it

Improves circulation:

Cold water stimulates the constriction of blood vessels, thus maintaining the body’s temperature. In addition, the blood flows better and thus purifies the skin.

Tones the skin

The previous two benefits of cold water for the skin mean that the face is smoother, deeply hydrated, and toned. And we all want the skin to be taut as long as possible and free of dead cells, right?

Prevents inflammation and erases dark circles

Better blood flow means there is less chance of redness and inflammation. This is reflected in the better appearance of the eyelids. The advice is to do a facial massage sometimes.

When it comes to steps that are good to follow, wash your face with cold water in the morning, then cleanse with a natural emollients cream or product you use.

A soap?

Water alone cannot cleanse your face. Instead, a surfactant (a soap that dissolves both water and grease) must be used to bind dirt to itself and gently remove it from the skin.

However, it is important to choose products that are gentle on the skin. For example, frequent washing with ordinary soaps or aggressive surfactants can weaken the skin barrier by changing its pH from its natural slightly acidic state between 5.4 and 5.9 to a neutral or even base pH.

In like manner, it reduces the skin’s ability to fight bacteria by disturbing the protein balance in the stratum corneum (the last layer of skin). It also harms by removing lipids that protect the skin (fats that bind the skin in the epidermis)—your natural emollients.

What happens next?

When the skin’s barrier function weakens, its sensitivity increases and becomes susceptible to drying and irritation.

So always try to choose a product that:

is gentle on the skin and does not dry it out
is made to suit your skin type and condition
is thoroughly tested and adapted for sensitive skin

Good cleansing cream with natural emollients does not touch the lipids in the skin, so the skin stays in balance.

Can I use cleansing cream daily?

You can use cleansers daily to effectively remove makeup and dirt from your face, more so than a face wash would. Unlike most soaps and body washes, cleansers do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate, which is known to be a common skin irritant.

Completely Clean Manuka Honey Cleansing Face Cream line is an eye makeup remover, moisturizer, and natural emollient. The entire palette of ingredients has been tested and proven suitable for sensitive facial skin and contains preparations for all skin types.

It is perfect for removing makeup, old skin cells, oil, dirt, and environmental pollution to unclog pores and prevent skin conditions like acne.

It leaves skin feeling clean and soft. It does not strip the skin from natural emollients or make it feel tight and dry like other facial cleansers can sometimes do. In addition, it won’t break your skin out. But it will speed the balance of your sensitive skin.

Manuka Honey Cleansing Face Cream is very concentrated, so a tiny bit goes a long way. It also easily removes makeup, even heavy makeup, and two coats of mascara, so there is no need to bother with a separate makeup remover. It’s gentle and silky, feels great, and leaves no residue behind.

You can only use a pea-sized amount, and please make sure that your face is wet before using it for the best results.

In the end …

So, we know everyone says to wash your face in the morning and night, but after trying everything, we can suggest to you the idea that maybe you’re overwashing.

When you overwash, you’re spoiling and washing away natural emollients – the ones that are protecting you.

Try less; what’s the harm in trying?

It may surprise you with softener skin and acne clearing. Also, you can use a gentle cleanser and basic moisturizer with almond oil and manuka honey, so nothing harsh in the day or night routine.

You can keep your cleaning routine for the evening, and it will be just fine.

And in case you’re wondering how that one man (aka. I) knows so much about the needs of a woman’s skin, remember that we have many ladies here in our team.
