3 Reasons to Switch Up Your Skin Care Regimen

Health & WellnessJessica AndersonComment

Is your skin care regimen just isn’t working for your skin type anymore? Or perhaps you are starting to ask questions about the ingredients found in your skin care products and if they are truly good for you. At SkinDeep Naturals, a Colorado natural skin care company, we encourage consumers to read their labels and consider switching up their skin care regimen. Here are 3 reasons to change up your skin care.

  1. Shelf Life: Just like you wouldn’t eat food that has been in your cabinet for two years, you might want to think twice about putting things on your skin with a long shelf life. Products with a long shelf life are made of artificial ingredients. Try small batch products made with natural ingredients instead.

  2. Ingredients: As many people make the shift to preferring whole foods over processed foods, they are also preferring skin care products with natural ingredients as well. Wouldn’t it be nice to use a skin care product with only ingredients you can pronounce and actually know what they are?

  3. Skin Type: You know it’s time to switch up your skin care regimen if you are having problems you haven’t had in the past. Perhaps your skin is overly dry, you are experiencing oily patches, or more frequent breakouts. If so, try something new and natural to see if you can get your skin to regulate.

No matter what the reason is that has you looking at new skin care products, we would love for you to give us a try. Contact us at SkinDeep Naturals today for more information.

Winter Skin Hacks

Organic Skin CareJessica AndersonComment

If you’re like us at SkinDeep Naturals, winter means dry air and dry skin. You might be running the humidifier day and night and slathering on the lotion, but your skin is still red and cracking. Since this Fort Collins natural skin care company is nestled right along the edge of the Rocky Mountains, we have learned a thing or two about protecting skin in the winter.

Here are 3 winter skin hacks to help you survive until the moisture comes back.

1) Try to use lukewarm water. Yes, we know - we want to jump in a hot bath as much as you do in the winter to warm our bones. But sadly, hot baths, showers, and washing your hands and face in hot water further strips your skin of the oils you so desperately need. When you can handle it, try to make the water less hot. Your skin will thank you.

2) Choose natural lotion. While you may already be using lotion, read the labels carefully. Many lotions from the drug store are petroleum-based, meaning they will dry your skin out more. Even lotions labeled as "natural" have drying ingredients that in no way nourish your skin. Read the ingredients label to make sure you know what you are putting on your skin. Because what goes onto your skin also enters your bloodstream! Check out the various moisturizers we offer at SkinDeep Naturals. Natural ingredients like jojoba oil, organic plant hydrosols, beeswax, coconut oil, and organic essential oils are easier for your skin to soak up and use.

3) Protect your skin when out in the elements. Wearing gloves and scarves over exposed skin can help protect your skin from the wind and cold. Often, our hands bear the brunt of dry skin troubles - so gloves will help your hands especially.

Hopefully implementing a few of these tips will help you get through the next few months of
cold weather. If you live in a cold weather climate like we do - what are your winter hacks for skin trouble? We’d love to hear from you! Contact us today at SkinDeep Naturals.

Product Highlight—Coconut Dream Cleanser and Eye Makeup Remover

Product HighlightsJessica AndersonComment

There is nothing quite like taking off your makeup and washing your face at the end of the day.
A soothing bedtime routine is an important part of proper sleep hygiene and using natural skin
care products in your bedtime routine can be a part of that.

Coconut Dream is a Northern Colorado organic skin care product that is meant to be a part of
your routine at the end of the day. Simply rub a dime-sized amount of the cream between your
palms and massage it on your face and neck. Then wipe it off with a warm, wet cloth to remove
makeup and any impurities from the day. We like these organic cotton cleansing clothes here at
SkinDeep for wiping off the cleanser.

Coconut Dream Cleanser and Eye Makeup remover is perfect for dry or mature skin types, not
necessarily those prone to oily skin. We also recommend following up this cleansing process
with Organic Cucumber Hydrating Mist or Organic Rosewater Mist as a toner. You can rest
assured we make Coconut Dream from organic, raw and unfiltered coconut oil and organic
essential oils for a soothing aroma and restorative qualities.

Removing your makeup at the end of the day prevents your pores from getting clogged by your
makeup and of course waking up with black circles around your eyes from smeared mascara. To
order your Coconut Dream or to learn about any of our other products, contact us at SkinDeep
Naturals today.

Protect Your Skin Naturally with Raw Elements Sunscreen

Organic Skin CareJessica AndersonComment

We may be out of the dog days of summer, but if you have any fall camping trips planned or know you will be hitting the slopes this winter, now is a good time to stock up on a few products we love from Raw Elements. As a Northern Colorado natural skin care company, we know that you are just as likely to get a sunburn on a hike during Indian Summer as you are in the heat of July.

Since we love supporting other natural skin care lines that share our vision, at SkinDeep Naturals we sell two Raw Elements products, the SPF 30 Sunscreen and the Tinted Sunscreen Travel Stick.

The travel stick is great as a daily moisturizer, or slathering on your kid’s face before they escape your grasp. It is full of certified organic minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants so you can feel good about putting it on your face every day.

If you are planning a trip to the Caribbean this fall or winter and want to snorkel in a reef, the sunscreen is reef safe. This means it won’t leave behind any toxic chemicals that will harm the coral or fish. Some snorkeling venues around the Caribbean even require this kind of sunscreen so it is a great buy if you have a vacation coming up.

If you want to remain diligent about protecting your skin year-round, check out the Raw Elements Sunscreen and Tinted Sunscreen Travel Stick. For more information, contact us today at SkinDeep Naturals.

Why Fresh Skin Care Products Are Better Than Those Sitting on a Shelf

Organic Skin CareJessica AndersonComment

Do you find it a little disconcerting to read the labels of your food and see they don’t expire for months or years to come? Or you have probably seen the horrifying photos that circulated the Internet a few years ago of a McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries that were left out for 10 years unrefrigerated and basically looked as good as new a decade later. You would never accept eating a meal that had sat on a shelf for years, so why is it different with skin care products?

While you don’t ingest your skin care products, there are several compelling reasons as to why fresh skin care products are better. Skin care products weren’t meant to sit on a shelf in a warehouse for long periods of time, waiting to make their way to your local drug store or beauty store when you pick them up.

Products that last that long are full or preservatives and artificial ingredients that create that longevity. When you buy products from SkinDeep Naturals, you are buying products with fresh and active ingredients, without weird preservatives. They have a shorter shelf life, because like your food, they are best when they are fresh. Our products are small-batch and made to order. Can you say that about the last skin care line you bought at Macy’s or Ulta?
