3 natural skincare brands you need to try in 2016

3 natural beauty brands to try this year
As well as making a conscious effort to be more focused on what I actually feed my body, I'm also making a few switchups in my skincare routine to include more natural and organic products. Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies, so what we put on it can have as much a difference as what we put in it. I've picked out three of my favourite natural/organic brands that I reckon are must tries this year  

Oskia – ah…the Renaissance Cleansing Gel *loving eyes*. Oskia are a brand with a bit of a difference. Founder Georgie Cleeve started the brand after witnessing the skincare benefits of MSM, a natural form of organic sulphur, which boosts collagen production, promotes circulation and helps to decrease inflammation in the skin. It’s one of the key ingredients within Oskia products, along with a whole host of other powerful natural extracts. I’ve previously raved about their Super 16 serum, which is amazing for anyone concerned with fine lines and ageing, but if you’re looking for a place to start with Oskia, definitely make it the Renaissance Cleansing Gel. This gel to oil cleanser gets rid of all the daily grime without stripping the skin. In fact, it leaves my skin feeling ridiculously soft and positively glowing, which is quite unusual for a rinse-off product! Prices start at £21 and head up to £80 for the Super 16 serum. You can find Oskia at Space NK, Cult Beauty and the Oskia website.    

Madara – I was introduced to Latvian brand Madara last year and had the privilege of meeting Lotte, one of the founders of the company. Their ECOCERT registered products all focus on the benefits of plants from across the northern Scandinavian regions, and they do a huge amount of research into the scientific effectiveness of each of the ingredients. It’s a great combination of nature meeting science with some very impressive results. I am fully obsessed with their Radiant Energy Face Oil, which is amazing for anyone with dull, dehydrated winter skin. It makes a great night treatment (you’ll wake up glowing) but can also be used in the mornings as the oil has a dryish finish to it. The Protecting Hand Cream is also well worth a purchase – the northern Plum and Linden Flower extracts get to work on dry, chapped hands and help moisturise brittle nails. Prices start from about £10 for the hand cream and go up to about £45 for the oils and treatments. Buy direct via the Madara website, Love Lula or Naturismo.

Antipodes – if you buy one thing from this cult Antipodean brand, make it the Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum. It’s not often you see immediate results from a skincare product, but I saw a noticeable difference in brightness and radiance from day one with this. It’s water-based, so works well for all skin types, just add some extra moisturiser on top if you’re dry or dehydrated. Antipodes products are almost all certified organic with 100% natural ingredients and use carefully selected bioactive ingredients which have been proven to help promote youthful skin. I’ve yet to try something from the brand I haven’t loved – the Delight hand and body cream is a repeat purchase for me and their Mineral Foundation is one of the most natural looking I’ve found. Prices range from about £16 to £40 and can be found at Selfridges, Feel Unique and Beauty Bay.
