Whether you're looking for a budget skincare item or something you can splurge on, we have you covered! Here at Nourished Life we're dedicated to bringing you a beautiful selection of toxin free products for every budget and skin type! When it comes to day creams, you should always consider what your skin needs. To keep your skin looking its best, there are many natural ingredients to keep an eye out for. Everything from Shea butter, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to Rosehip Oil and Hyaluronic Acid!
If you have problematic skin, then Rose may be the perfect ingredient to look out for! Rich in vitamins, this mild antiseptic also has anti-inflammatory properties. Rose may help calm and soothe acne breakouts, skin irritations or sensitivities. If you're looking to splurge, the Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream $62, is nourishing, protective and very hydrating! Made with 30 organic and biodynamic rose blossoms, this day cream may be perfect for dry or sensitive skin as it works to reduce redness and irritation. I've actually dedicated a whole blog post to this product, which you can read here! A budget alternative is the Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Beautiful Day Cream $24.95. Formulated with Alpine Rose Stem Cell technology, this day cream is rich in antioxidants and anti-ageing ingredients that may help combat environmental stress and soothe sensitive skin.
Rosehip oil is an amazing ingredient that all skin types can benefit from! Rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin C, essential fatty acids and Lycopene, Rosehip oil may help improve the skin texture as well as provide nice hydration. For a splurge, I recommend the Pai Skincare Pai Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream $65.95. It contains a concentrated dosage of Trans-retinoic Acid from Rosehip which fuels the skin's natural restoration process. It's a gentle formulation filled with omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 as well as calming antioxidants which may be ideal for sensitive skin. A budget alternative is the RosehipPLUS Hydrating Day Cream $17.95. This day cream is ultra softening and may minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's full of potent antioxidants and may help maintain your skin's hydration.
Hyaluronic Acid is the dream ingredient for anyone concerned with dryness or ageing. With the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid may visibly improve your skin's collagen production and hydration from a cellular level. If you're looking to splurge, I recommend the La Mav Hyaluronan Daily Moisture Crème, $39.95. This velvety cream is made with the plumping benefits of hyaluronic acid and argan oil. It may help reduce the appearance of fine lines while promoting firmness and an overall glow! A budget alternative is the Andalou Naturals Hyaluronic DMAE Lift & Firm Cream $24.95. Made with deeply hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, this day cream also contains potent anti-ageing ingredients which may help rejuvenate ageing skin.
Aloe Vera may be excellent for those with blemish prone or oily skin as it's a natural antiseptic and known to protect and sooth damaged skin. The Dr Alkaitis Organic Day Creme $79.95, is a luxurious blend of raw, plant based ingredients that holistically treat ageing. It may be perfect for those with oily or combination skin as it targets environmental damage. A great budget option is the Sanctum Moisture Balance - Oil Free $17.95, which leaves the complexion cool, calm and hydrated. Formulated with certified organic ingredients including Aloe Vera and Rose Flower Water, this day cream has amazing anti-inflammatory properties which may help to tone, soothe and balance the skin!
