Natural Face Wash – What You Should Look For
Everyone has a different idea of what makes a great natural face wash. For some it’s an amazing smell, but for most it’s how it performs. A great natural face wash should look inviting and make you look forward to using it, it should smell glorious so you’re happy to use it on your face and it should leave skin feeling wonderfully cleansed without a hint of tightness.
Your skin type can mean you have different needs from a natural face wash. For example, oily skin people tend to enjoy the feeling that their skin has been stripped of moisture (even though it isn’t necessarily the best thing for their skin!) as they’re usually on a constant battle to try and eradicate that oily feeling. Whereas dry skinned people want to have skin that feels as if it’s been given a bath of moisture after using their natural face wash; the last thing dry skin sufferers want is that tight feeling after using a good face wash!
The best way to keep most skin types happy is by using a good natural face wash that won’t upset the natural balance of the skin, so gentle natural cleansers that are soap free are best for all skin types. Look for plant-based natural ingredients in a natural face wash that are great for the skin, will sooth whilst cleansing and will brighten and hydrate the skin.

Best natural skincare regime for your 30’s
By the time you reach your 30’s, your skin will have started to show the first signs of age, even if you’ve been looking after it with a solid natural skincare routine; sadly it’s unavoidable! What better time to start upping your natural skicnare routine to include treatments that are designed to support and nourish your skin.
It’s important you take into account your skin type before assessing what natural products you need. For example, if you suffer from oily skin then you will need to adjust your routine accordingly so that you don’t exacerbate the problem. However, if you are oily-skinned then chances are you will be showing less signs of ageing than your peers with other skin types - every cloud has a silver lining!
It is recommended that you should start with a natural creamy cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. A creamy cleanser as part of your skincare regime will be soft and kind to your skin.
Keep skin well moisturised using a natural moisturiser, whatever your skin type. If you’re oily then you still need to up your moisturising, yet be aware of products that make oiliness worse. The focus doesn’t need to be on moisturisers as you can keep skin hydrated using gently formulated toning sprays throughout the day. This keeps your skins water level up and ensures it doesn’t become overly dry.
If you haven’t already, now is a great time to introduce a natural serum in your skincare routine. A serum is the ultimate food for your skin and will add goodness and moisture and help your current moisturiser work at its optimum efficiency.

Dry Sensitive Skin
Dry sensitive skin is often prone to spots and dry patches, meaning it is difficult to treat and find the right cleansers and moisturisers. If this is your skin type, it is essential that you avoid chemical products as much as possible, as dry sensitive skin is very reactive – ensure you treat your skin carefully and gently.
It important to look for very gentle, mild natural skincare products that are specially formulated to nourish and protect your skin. Try to avoid heavily fragranced soap products and switch to soap free body washes and cleansers as they have a lower ph than soaps with less potential to irritate dry sensitive skin. We recommend our Essential Cleansing Lotion which is a very gentle cream cleanser for dry sensitive skin as it is nourishes as well as cleanses.
If your skin naturally becomes more sensitive at some times than at others, during such sensitive periods try and strip your products right back to the bare minimum – ideally a gentle natural cleanser and natural moisturiser. A natural cream cleanser will minimise aggravation, as compared to a wash-off one.
If you do suffer from dry sensitive skin it is best to look for very gentle natural skincare products that work for you - always check that the products you are purchasing are able to be returned if they are not suitable for your skin. Here at Savar we offer a 30 day money back guarantee on the rare chance that someone may react to our safe and gentle New Zealand made natural products.
