How to Naturally Take Care of Your Skin
You may not realize it, but your favorite skin care products may be full of harmful ingredients – including chemicals and toxins that should be nowhere near you, much less on your skin. Many commercially produced beauty products are full of artificial preservatives, stabilizers, and colors that are absorbed through the skin, which can have a range of negative effects on your health.
At Native Sun, we believe in stocking only natural health and beauty products on our shelves. Want to transform your beauty routine? We can help you find natural skin care products to safely care for your skin.
The Hidden Secrets of Beauty Products
It’s a reality in today's world that many mass-produced products are loaded up with synthetic ingredients that aren’t good for your skin. This is due to the fact that there aren’t a lot of government regulations when it comes to personal care products.
You can combat this by following the same rules for your skin care as you do for the food you put on your plate: Look for unprocessed products free from artificial ingredients and harsh chemicals.
Healthy Skin, Naturally
If you want healthy skin naturally, then you need to embrace the ingredients from nature. At Native Sun, we carry an array of natural skin care products that energize, hydrate, and soothe your skin -- and your body as a whole.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein your body needs to grow strong. Your body naturally produces 10 of the 20 amino acids your body needs to function optimally, the rest you have to get yourself. That’s where Quantum Health Super Lysine comes into the picture.
Lysine is an amino acid that supports healthy cells in your hair, nails, bones, and skin. It’s been found to help add strength to the sensitive skin around your eyes and mouth that tends to age faster while also helping to improve acne.
Collagen is essential to the health of your bones and connective tissue. As you age, collagen production tends to slow down, which reduces the elasticity and smoothness of your skin. Adding more collagen to your diet with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides can help to support collagen production and keep your skin looking young.
You may think that for healthy skin you should get nowhere near anything with “acid” in the title, but the truth is that beauty isn’t only skin deep. The health of your skin is related to the health of your gut. With Solaray HCL with Pepsin, you can aid your body’s digestive processes and allow it to more fully absorb the nutrients you eat that are vital to the health of your skin.
Hydrochloric acid has been found to help benefit inflammatory skin diseases such as rosacea. That’s why it’s important to focus on the health of your body as a whole and not just the health of your skin – it’s all connected!
