Guest Article From Tess Fox, Director of Marketing at FREEDOM Naturals

Let’s face it – who has the time to research every single ingredient listed in their favorite new ‘redhead friendly‘ moisturizer and make sure it doesn’t cause side effects? We sure don’t. But what we do know is that when it comes to skincare, we have a choice. And one of the most important skincare decisions you can make is to choose natural, botanical based products made with Earth’s best ingredients. Your redhead skin will thank you. Besides being able to actually pronounce the names of these ingredients, we should all care about what goes in (and stays out) of our skincare.

With Redhead Season here, it’s time to take control of your skincare routine. We’ve already done the dirty work and can help you decide which products to use. Check out 4 of our all-time favorite natural ingredients below.

Aloe Vera

One of the best natural ingredients out there is Aloe Vera – mother nature’s gift as we like to call it – and has been used for centuries. It’s known to naturally contain more than 200 healing properties to help reduce swelling, fight bacteria and soothe pain. Cleopatra and the Ancient Egyptians have been said to have used Aloe Vera for a ton of healing treatments, so it’s basically a staple when it comes to ingredients.

BONUS: Organic Aloe Vera is used in every single FREEDOM Naturals product! Their Calming Moisturizer was just featured in the October H2BAR Box.

Shea Butter

Believe us when we say that moisturizing isn’t just enough. You need to find a natural, moisturizing ingredient that also helps to heal skin conditions. That’s why we love Shea Butter. Not only does it contain natural fatty acids and essential vitamins, Shea Butter also provides super intense protection for smooth, soft looking skin. When combined with Organic Aloe Vera, the two provide extra healing benefits for healthy looking skin.

Arnica

Flowers are for more than just your vase. Arnica Montana Flower is a favorite ingredient used for its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. This natural ingredient is a major life saver. If you suffer from rosacea, always use a skincare product with Arnica to help reduce redness, relieve swelling and reduce bruising. FREEDOM Naturals Calming Moisturizer contains both Organic Aloe Vera and Arnica for double the healing power.

Colloidal Oatmeal

Another soothing, natural botanical we love is Colloidal Oatmeal – or Avena Sativa. This one is a ‘must have’ on our ingredient list. Known for providing a protective layer over the skin, oats also help retain your skin’s natural moisture. Suffer from eczema or itching? Look for a product that contains Colloidal Oatmeal to help soothe itching and rashes, common with eczema symptoms.

There you have it, our top four favorite natural ingredients for skincare products. Consider adding them to your daily routine this redhead season to obtain healthy looking skin!
