When it comes to putting products on your face, you would think you should avoid harmful chemicals or oils, right? The problem is that most people don’t bother to check the list of ingredients in their daily skincare products or makeup collection. There are a wide variety of using products with natural ingredient, but a short list is described below.
- You’re helping the Earth. Nature has so much to offer, so by utilizing plants and extracts that naturally are found there is a great idea. Just like eating foods that are naturally grown from the Earth is healthy for your body, the same can be said for what you put on the outside of your body. Products that are made from chemicals have a negative impact on the environment. The manufacturing of these products puts all those chemicals into the air and water.
- Natural products are less likely to irritate your skin. Scary chemicals and artificial ingredients in your skincare products can cause irritation, redness, breakouts and more. You may also be allergic to these products or find that they worsen your existing skin.
- Your skin absorbs things- including your beauty products. Anything that you put on your skin, including lipstick and moisturizers, can be absorbed into the body and blood stream. If you wouldn’t put an ingredient in your body on purpose (such as eating it), then you shouldn’t be putting it on your face. Shinso Skincare products use natural ingredients that occur in nature, like deep sea water, honey, grapefruit peel and more.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by redness on the face that currently affects around 14 million Americans. Usually it manifests itself across the cheeks, nose and forehead and sometimes includes small bumps, burning and other symptoms. Rosacea affects all ages and genders (although it is more common in women) and can worsen over time if left untreated.
Certain medications, skincare items and makeup can trigger rosacea, which makes living with the condition extra hard. Thankfully, there are treatments in the form of steroid creams, but you also can help to keep your rosacea at bay by staying away from certain products or using products specifically made for sensitive skin.
It’s important to have a consistent and gentle skincare routine when suffering from rosacea. Products such as Shinso Mist can be easily applied to skin to help control the symptoms. This product is free of oil, chemicals, fragrances and parabens, so it’s good for your skin and won’t trigger flare-ups. When shopping for skincare products, read the labels carefully to make sure the ingredients are natural and gentle. Some ingredients to avoid include alcohol, menthol, salicylic acid and sodium lauryl sulfate.
When applying products, make sure to be gentle and to avoid any scrubbing, since this could make your skin worse. Stay away from harsh exfoliants or skin peels. Instead, cleanse with your fingertips with a mild cleanser.
Lastly, make sure to pile on the sunscreen. The harsh sun can trigger a flare-up, so using a daily sunscreen can help combat these. Like mentioned above, avoid formulas with alcohol, oils and fragrances and look for products with zinc oxide and silicone, since these oftentimes help people with rosacea.

With the Oscars right around the corner, all eyes are bound to be on the stunning Cate Blanchett. While many at-home viewers will be anticipating what dress she’ll be wearing, I assume it will be hard to take our eyes off her beauty. The 44-year-old Blue Jasmine star has impeccable skin that that’s the envy of those half her age. So what products and routines are behind Blanchett’s milky, smooth complexion?
One of the most important factors to get skin like Blanchett’s is to wear a strong sunscreen daily. Whether it’s winter or summer, protecting your skin is crucial. In previous interviews, she mentioned a favorite of hers is Daylong Sunscreen Lotion- a sunscreen for those with skin that is extremely sensitive to the sun. Staying out of the sun when you can is your best bet to great skin at any age.
Blanchett also appreciates the transforming powers of a good facial. While previously spending time in London, she enjoyed one from a Shinso celebrity facialist. Instead of opting for tons of facial plastic surgery like most of Hollywood, she has received a “natural face lift” by using innovative Shinso skincare products.
Another important factor for beautiful skin is to make sure you drink enough water. Blanchett has said she has started drinking a lot of coconut water and “tends to live on it when I’m on stage”. Staying hydrated does wonders for your skin, but has many other health benefits as well.
To fake a little flush, Blanchett sticks to cheek stains, like this Tarte version. A rosy shade adds just a little color to her fair skin, so it looks believable.

Before purchasing skin or beauty products, it’s important to take a look at what ingredients are in it. So many companies use unnatural or harmful chemicals in their products, which sets Shinso Skincare apart from the rest. Shinso products are a natural skincare treatment that will protect your skin by using the Earth’s most potent and powerful minerals, extracts and ingredients. In addition to ingredients such as coffea arabica seed, honey and panax ginseng root extract, the products also contain deep sea water.
The ancient Japanese believed the Gods gave the Earth and sea great healing powers. One folktale tells the story of a fisherman who sets out to sea to find two special gifts for his ailing wife. Upon returning, he gives her the water from the deepest part of the sea and a delicate, fresh flower. She drinks a mixture of the ground petals and water, and almost instantly, her frail body is rejuvenated and her cheeks glow with radiance. This ancient belief is magnified by the phenomenal powers of the current deep sea water found in Japan currently.
The scientific blend of ocean minerals from the deep sea water make all the difference in skincare products, like Shinso Mist. This rare water is classified as “deep sea” because it is harvested from 2,000 feet below the Earth’s surface. This pure and prized water originates from ancient glaciers in Greenland, which took 2,000 years to reach the shores of Japan. It’s said that this special water is a miraculous source of life, as well as the only dioxin-free water in Japan. Dioxin is a highly-toxic compound produced as a byproduct in some manufacturing processes, as well as an environmental pollutant. This water is never exposed to outside air, which helps to maintain the purity and prevent contamination, as mentioned above. Instead, the water is extracted to the surface using a sealed vacuum tube.
