Looking to green your skin care routine this year? Start with some simple ingredients in your own pantry, says Graydon Moffat, ingredient anthropologist and owner of GRAYDON, Clinical Luxury by Nature, a natural skin care line based in Toronto. We asked her for some easy, inexpensive and effective solutions for natural skin care and she sent us her favourite ingredients for nourishing your skin at home.
Avocado, Mango and Papaya
Besides making an awesome smoothie and delicious snack for toddlers, these fruits also make a delicious hydrating face masque—simply mash them together with a fork and apply. Your face absorbs the oil from the avocado, and the natural acids and enzymes in the mango and papaya gently exfoliate dead skin cells. (Save Your Face)
Remember, what you put on your body is as important to your health as what you put in it. Here are more of Graydon’s favourite ingredients to green your skin care routine.
