There may be some holidays we’re too old for – say trick-or-treating as an adult – but making a wish list for an important holiday to you is not one of them. Whether it’s your birthday, Christmas, or New Year, the time-old questions, “What do you want for …?” or “What is your resolution?”, are answered at a drop of a hat if you have a wish list – and beauty and skincare goodies are near the top.

A winning wish list is only as good as having the best beauty and skincare products for your skin type, needs, and goals – and that’s where we come in! Let’s leave guesswork off that list, and help you create the best personalized beauty and skincare wish list.

Get ready to meet your hand-picked skin squad with natural products that align with your skin care needs and beauty aspirations. Wishes do come true!

Identifying Your Skincare Goals

You wouldn’t normally list ‘shoes’ or ‘subscription’ on a wish list without any supporting details like type or kind – and skincare is no exception. There are more deets about skin products that you should know to make the best beauty choices. Knowing your skin type is one of the most worthwhile tidbits of information you can have.

Just like people’s individual fashion or membership choices, each of us has our preferences for skincare products. While liberating, that freedom can lead to more self-restraint with the plethora of products out there. Plus, you may end up going down the rabbit hole if you lose focus on your skincare type and goals.

Knowing your skin type allows you to better understand what products will benefit your skin and which could end up potentially doing more harm than good – hint, synthetic ingredients. Whether you have oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin, choosing high-quality ingredients that are specifically tailored to your skin type is critical in finding the best natural products for you.

Oily
This skin type is probably the easiest to spot, and most with oily skin are aware that they have this skin type. You’ll notice a shiny or slick texture on the surface of your face, most common in what’s called the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin), due to excess oil production.

Dry
Dry skin needs a bit more attention and love. Dry skin types usually notice tightness, flaking, redness, and thirsty-feeling skin. This is because people with dry skin produce less sebum (natural oils) than other skin types, resulting in a complexion that looks flaky and dull.

Combination
This kind of skin has some traits from both the above – areas that are oily, very dry spots, and periods where things are balanced or neutral. Most commonly, the cheeks and perioral area tend to be dry and the nose and forehead oilier. The most important thing about combination skin is that it doesn’t always behave the same.

Sensitive
Sensitive skin is like the crybaby of the types. It seems to react to anything and everything. If you truly have sensitive skin, it will get hot, red, itchy, or irritated from things like skincare products, showers, and exercise. Those with sensitive skin are also often diagnosed with eczema, rosacea, or dermatitis.

Now that we can tick skin type off our checklist, it’s time to assess any specific skin concerns or naughty behaviors. Skin type is not the same as skin behavior, meaning you can have breakouts or acne with sensitive skin even though it’s more common with oily skin. Here are some main skin concerns:

Acne:

Acne is a multifactorial skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. It’s characterized by the presence of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Several factors can contribute to acne, including hormonal fluctuations, excessive sebum production, and hyperkeratinization (abnormal shedding of skin cells). But other factors such as unhealthy habits, stressors, and overall lifestyle choices can play a part in how our skin mis-behaves.

Aging:

As we age, our skin undergoes a natural and gradual transformation. Skin aging is inevitable, but some of us will experience more severe symptoms than others, especially those who don’t wear sun protection. These symptoms can include fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, rough skin texture, loss of firmness, sagging, and uneven skin. Overexposure to the sun over the years without sunscreen also carries an increased risk of skin cancer.

Pigmentation:

Dark spots or pigmentation are common skin concerns affecting people of all ages and skin types. These spots, varying in size and color, can appear on different body parts but are most commonly seen on areas exposed to the sun, like the face, hands, and arms. Several factors contribute to pigmentation, like acne scars, aging, and sun exposure. Environmental stressors can also lead to pigmentation problems and dull skin.

So, skin type and skin concerns – done and done! Let’s add skincare goals to the checklist so you can create a regimen that caters to your concerns and needs. By adopting certain goals, you can better ensure you’re crafting the ultimate beauty and skincare wish list!

#1. Improved Hydration

Hydration is key, especially for acne and aging concerns. Though there are misconceptions which claim that people with acne should steer clear of hydration, this is simply untrue. Acne sufferers need hydration to balance their dermis. As for aging concerns, our skin’s natural ability to retain moisture can decrease over time. Drinking ample water and using hydrating products can help plump fine lines and maintain that youthful glow.

#2. Acne Control

To help control acne or breakouts, it’s best to start with controlling lifestyle and skincare choices. Practice healthy habits, like taming stress, getting good sleep, wearing sunscreen, and using an effective, natural skincare regimen. Gentle, but effective, herbs and hydrosols create the best natural acne ingredients to look for in products, such as tea tree oil, witch hazel, and neem, which are known for their antibacterial and oil-controlling properties. Harsh chemicals used to be all the rage, but these natural ingredients can be just as effective on acne – without the unwanted side effects and long-term complexion wreckers.

#3. Anti-aging

As we age, our skin’s natural ability to retain moisture can decrease. Drinking ample water and using moisturizing products can help maintain that youthful glow. The key to aging skin is keeping it hydrated and infusing it with antioxidant-boosting products and sun protection. The sun’s rays can accelerate the signs of aging. Products rich in antioxidants can combat the free radicals that contribute to aging. Consider ingredients like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, plant-based bakuchiol as a retinol alternative, and antioxidants (e.g., green tea, coffee bean) known for their anti-aging benefits.

Natural Care for Oily Skin

Your Facial Cleanser: Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Cleanser

The degreasing combination of tea tree and witch hazel cuts through excess oil to reduce buildup and shine; two common complaints for oily skin types. Purifying herbs and organic lemon water wash away dirt and grime caught within surface oil buildup and from within pores, resulting in a deep and refreshing cleanse for oily skin. Other cleanser options for oily skin: Charcoal Clay Cleanser.

Your Facial Toner: Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Astringent

Antiseptic and anti-inflammatory turmeric, willow bark, and tea tree tone and soothe acne and inflammation caused by excess oil buildup. Load up a cotton ball with this purifying astringent and swipe your way to deeply cleansed, purified, and de-greased skin. With the soothing duo of cleanser and toner, your no-longer-oily skin will be prepped and primed without feeling dry or stripped.

Your Facial Serum: Green Tea EGCG Concentrate Serum

Stimulating doses of caffeine from yerba mate and green tea help to tighten pores, resulting in reduced sebum production. The ultra-light base of organic aloe water and light, non-comedogenic oils of rosehip and avocado deeply penetrate the skin to instill vital nourishment without being heavy or adding unnecessary oil to your skin.

Your Facial Moisturizer: Green Tea EGCG Concentrate Cream

As with your facial serum, caffeine from yerba mate and green tea will help to stimulate circulation and tighten pores, resulting in reduced sebum production. Green tea oil continues this stimulating effect while adding necessary nourishment for the skin. Another moisturizer option for oily skin: Hydra Drench Cream.

Natural Care for Dry Skin

Your Facial Cleanser: Coconut Moisturizing Milk Foam

This luxuriously rich and extra gentle facial cleanser only has a handful of ingredients, making it a great option for dry or sensitive skin types. Deeply moisturizing organic coconut oil and coconut milk plus hydrating organic coconut water create the ideal trio for nourishing drier skin types, while proteins from coconut replenish weakened, flaking skin and promote collagen production. Potassium cocoate is also derived from coconut and serves as a super gentle cleansing agent for dry or sensitive skin types. Other cleanser options for dry skin: Argan Oil Creamy Cleanser and Blood Orange Cleansing Balm.

Your Facial Toner: Restorative Sea Culture Hydrating Toner

This natural toner spells instant, water-drenching relief for dry skin. Chia water, hyaluronic acid, algae, and sea kelp pack heavy doses of water, so applying them together within a single toner is a recipe for quenching thirsty skin. The intensely hydrating ingredients in this sea mineral-rich toner will replenish dry skin and re-plump where hydration and elasticity are lacking.

Your Facial Serum: Restorative Sea Culture Replenishing Serum

The ultra-light, soft gel texture of this facial serum will pack hydration deep within the skin’s pores, making for a long-lasting thirst quencher to be locked in by your moisturizer. Seaweed polysaccharides hydrate and plump to return youthful elasticity and suppleness to dry skin, while olive squalane prolongs hydration.

Your Facial Moisturizer: Hydra Drench Cream

Hydrating superstars rose water, chia gel, nopal cactus, and hyaluronic acid provide a final seal to lock your lineup of H2O-packed products into dry skin. Chia water and chia oil are packed with omega fatty acids to plump, firm, and fortify skin. Non-clogging oils from chia and coconut are paired with skin-softening shea butter to retain all those wonderful hydrating nutrients that were delivered into dry skin by your cleanser, toner, and serum. Other moisturizer options for dry skin: Restorative Sea Culture Extra Riche Creme.

Natural Care for Combination Skin

Your Facial Cleanser: Charcoal Clay Cleanser

Activated bamboo charcoal and volcanic ash flush environmental debris like dirt, smog, and dust from deep within pores; a helpful asset when larger pores tend to allow for uninvited guests that can make pores look even larger. Charcoal also acts as a carbon magnet for debris and toxins, and volcanic ash and organic lemon water can constrict pores, therefore minimizing their appearance. Excess oil tends to be a major side effect of larger pores, and both lemon water and lemon extract are superb for degreasing skin.

Your Facial Toner: Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Astringent

The potent botanical power of pure tea tree oil is a tried and true method for shrinking large, ‘open’ pores. Turmeric, willow bark, and tea tree tone and soothe while cutting through excess oil buildup: a major side effect of larger pores.

Your Facial Serum: Green Tea EGCG Concentrate Serum

The potent doses of caffeine from yerba mate and green tea help to tighten pores by stimulating and increasing circulation in the skin. The extra boost of hydration from aloe and hyaluronic acid will instill hydration deep into pores after they’ve been purged by your cleanser and toner. PM serum option for large pores: Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Potent PM Serum.

Your Facial Moisturizer: Green Tea EGCG Concentrate Cream

Keep with the pore-tightening by using a caffeine-rich moisturizer with a lightweight body. The purifying essential oils in this formula will help to keep pores clean and clarified; remember, clogged pores = larger-looking pores!

Natural Care for Sensitive Skin

Your Facial Cleanser: Coconut Moisturizing Milk Foam

The short ingredient list for this gently cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing face wash makes for a safe and effective option for sensitive skin types. Skin-healthy fatty acids plus deeply nourishing moisture from coconut-derived ingredients will leave skin gently cleansed and ultra-soft. Other cleanser options for sensitive skin: Argan Oil Creamy Cleanser.

Your Facial Toner: Restorative Sea Culture Hydrating Toner

Gentle aloe, chia water, and alcohol-free witch hazel are all super soothing and packed with hydration, skin-plumping omega fatty acids, and anti-inflammatory benefits for sensitive skin. Delivering hydration is important for sensitive skin types because as your skin becomes dehydrated, sensitivity and risk of irritation increase exponentially.

Your Facial Serum: Restorative Sea Culture Replenishing Serum

This deeply hydrating serum has a light gel body that feels like a cool, soothing sip of water for the skin. If you’d like to skip the serum, try a facial oil like our Argan Oil; an especially good option if you prefer to avoid or take it easy with essential oils.

Your Facial Moisturizer: Restorative Sea Culture Extra Riche Créme

This moisturizer feels rich and slightly thick, but spreads easily and rests lightly on the skin. The nourishing minerals in sea vegetables and sea cultures hydrate and fortify any skin type while remaining gentle enough for sensitive skin. Another moisturizer option for sensitive skin: Hydra Drench Cream.

As with all these ultimate-natural-skincare wish lists, we can’t emphasize enough the importance of adding sun protection to your tailored routine. The sun, a celestial body that bestows life-sustaining light and warmth, has a dual nature. While its rays offer numerous health benefits, they also harbor the potential for harm, particularly in the form of damaging ultraviolet radiation.

Sunscreens have emerged as our shield against the sun’s harmful effects, traditionally relying on chemical ingredients. However, there’s been a notable shift towards natural alternatives, driven by concerns about the environmental impact and potential health risks associated with synthetic sunscreens. This shift signifies a growing awareness of the need to protect our skin and the planet simultaneously. We couldn’t agree more!

Our Yerba Mate Mist SPF 30 works to keep your skin soft, smooth, and protected. Say hello to your perfect mate with this lightweight yet hydrating formula! If you’re looking for a mess-free SPF moment, we’re here to deliver some of your favorite natural ingredients for healthy and glowing skin.

Yerba mate infuses a boost of antioxidants while gently toning and firming the skin. This mattifying formula fortifies skin with antioxidants to help protect against damaging free radicals and environmental pollutants. Our water-resistant, coral reef-safe vegan sunscreen is made with broad-spectrum mineral zinc oxide and sprays evenly for full coverage.

FAQ Section: Your Ultimate Wish List Questions Answered

How Do I Prioritize Products on My Beauty Wish List?

First, it’s important to choose natural products that address your specific skin type and concerns. Different natural ingredients have varying effects on the skin, so it’s crucial to understand your skin type and curate a wish list (hint, we have above) that’s best suited for you. For example, oily skin may benefit from ingredients like tea tree oil or witch hazel, while dry skin may benefit from shea butter or jojoba oil.

As for your natural beauty or cosmetics list, sorting lip products, eye makeup, face makeup, and brushes into separate groups can instantly help streamline your beauty space. You’ll be able to easily access your products and prevent clutter by giving each product group its designated place.

Can I Find Quality Skincare and Beauty Products on a Budget?

Yes! It may take a little more time and research, but you can easily find quality natural products on a budget. Natural skincare uses higher-quality ingredients, which can be costlier to source, harder to locate, and more labor-intensive to produce. But they have many benefits for your skin with no harsh or toxic ingredients. Most conventional products use synthetic and harmful ingredients because they are cheaper to manufacture. In addition, the reality that you’re getting enough of the actives in conventional skincare to make a difference on your skin is quite low. Natural skincare is the way to go if you want gentle yet effective results!

What Are the Best Ways to Test Products Before Adding Them to My Wish List?

Natural skincare products are generally considered safer to use and less likely to cause allergic reactions compared to synthetic products. These products work synergistically to hydrate, replenish, and support the skin’s natural functions. Before using any new product, perform a patch test to ensure compatibility and avoid any potential allergic reactions. In addition, introduce products one by one into your routine and observe how your skin responds. This helps identify any sensitivities or adjustments needed.

How Often Should I Update My Beauty and Skincare Wish List?

Your skin’s needs may change with your age as well as the seasons. For example, many of us suffer from dry, flaky skin in the winter, even if our complexion is on the oily or combo side the rest of the year. If that’s the case, focus on incorporating more gentle, hydrating ingredients and richer moisturizers. However, during the hot, humid months, focus on more lightweight products. Remember, as you age, it’s important to keep hydrated skin and use sun protection daily to help lessen the effects of premature aging.

Are There Any Must-Have Ingredients I Should Look for in Skincare Products?

Yes, and it depends on your skin type. Ingredients to look for are Retinol, vitamin C, licorice extract, kojic acid, arbutin, niacinamide, mandelic acid, tranexamic acid and SPF 30. Ingredients to look for Vitamin C, vitamin E, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, caffeine, green tea extract, and exfoliating acids (lactic, glycolic, and salicylic).

Conclusion

There’s an old saying, “Take care of your skin, and it will take care of you.” A dedicated beauty and skincare routine isn’t just about looking good, it’s about feeling good that you have the best-curated products for your individual needs and goals.

When we treat our skin with love, attention, and the right natural skin care products, we’re not just preserving its youth; we’re also ensuring its health, radiance, and vitality. Investing time in a skincare ritual can indeed be a transformative experience. Not only does it rejuvenate the skin, but it also offers a moment of meditation, mindfulness, and self-connection.

The magic of skincare lies not just in the products we use, but in the rituals we create around them. A devoted routine can significantly slow down the clock, ensuring that our skin remains as timeless as our spirit. As you delve deeper into this article, discover the empowering rituals that can become a beacon of self-love, leading you on a path of ageless beauty and holistic well-being.
