Because I have always preferred doing things the natural way, I'm not much of a fan of using makeup. Foundation or cover-up makeup has always been a no-no in my book. Did you know that natural facial moisturizers could help enhance or maintain your skin's natural beauty without makeup?
Some women use a foundation or cover-up makeup to hide acne or other facial marks. Some just feel it looks better than going natural. Some may even be hiding uneven skin tones. There are natural facial moisturizers that could not only keep the face smooth and hydrated, but also can help control acne. Some may even help even out skin tones over time. Controlling acne and keeping the facial skin healthy can help women avoid reaching for foundation makeup to cover up their natural beauty.
Moisturize Skin and Control Acne: Tea Tree Oil as a Natural Facial Moisturizer
Tea tree oil is a great natural moisturizer that also happens to control acne well. Tea tree oil is an antiseptic, a fungus fighter, and has antibacterial properties as well. This could help to avoid foundation makeup by keeping the face soft and clear. For the best results, apply tea tree oil as a facial moisturizer once or twice daily to control acne. Only a few small drops are needed. This will keep the face feeling smooth and clean, as well as help to prevent acne. For a diluted and blended version, try Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree Oil.
Milk Blend as a Natural Facial Moisturizer
Rinsing the face daily with a blend of natural coconut milk and natural almond milk is very good for the skin. This could help avoid foundation makeup by nourishing the skin and controlling acne. These natural milks can be found at health food stores and also are simple to make at home. Simply splash an even blend of both milks onto the face once or twice daily. For extra dry skin, try a combination of natural facial moisturizers, such as also using the tea tree oil.
Even Skin Tone, Moisturize, and Fight Acne: Homemade Natural Facial Moisturizer
This is an interesting method that I learned by experimenting with different things. Take an orange peel or lemon peel and rub it over the face after cleansing the skin. Next, rinse the face in natural lemon juice. Then, rub in a blend of pure cocoa butter (not a blended or processed version) and tea tree oil. Only a small amount of these natural facial moisturizers is needed. Do this once in the morning and once at night. This could help avoid foundation makeup by moisturizing the skin, evening the tone, and controlling acne.
