Purifying your skin care routine is easy and fun. It also reduces your daily exposure to harmful toxins found in common store-bought skin care products and saves you tons of money! 

If you haven't purified your skin care routine, it's now time to do it using the following 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Discard Old, Toxic Products

The first step is to start fresh.

Take everything out of your bathroom cabinet whether old or new. Find the expiration date and toss out all old products. Then, read the label on everything that's left.

Does your eye cream contain ingredients like methylisothiazolinone? Toss it! This dangerous chemical is extremely common and has been PROVEN to cause brain cell death in rats after only 10 minutes exposure!

Are your occasional puffy eyes really so serious you would risk brain damage?

A great rule of thumb is if you can't read it, you probably don't want it on your skin. 

Step 2: Pair Down to What You Really Need - Simplify Your Skin Care

The second step in the skin purification process is to simplify your skin care routine by eliminating unnecessary products.


Do you really need a foot cream, eye cream, face cream and body cream? Absolutely not! A deeper look into what you have will reveal that most natural moisturizers can perform double duty.

Take our Transform Natural Moisturizer for example. This cream contains ingredients not known to clog pores and certainly non-toxic. Why not use it on your face as well as your body? Thick enough to hydrate stiff feet yet absorbent enough to soak into your delicate facial skin.

One jar = many uses. 


Do you need a shampoo, bar soap, shower gel, hand soap and face soap? Sounds crazy just saying it doesn't it?

Natural bar soap is extremely versatile. It can be used to wash the entire body including the face and bum. It can be used as a natural shampoo, so long as you follow up with a cool water and apple cider vinegar conditioning rinse. Plus, bar soap can be used as a natural shave gel alternative!

Yes, that's right. Just rub the bar on your skin, lather with your hand, and shave as you normally would. The razor will glide across your skin, cutting hairs effectively, while the soap cleans your skin.

Step 3: Choose High Quality Skin Care with or DIY

An investment in a natural, high-quality moisturizer and soap will prove more cost-effective and beneficial than a cabinet full of products. 

Be sure to read labels however, as not all natural skin care products are made equally. 

Nefertem holistic skincare products contain only the purest ingredients on Earth including organic coconut oil, grass-fed tallow and unrefined shea butter. They also contain pure essential oils (plant extracts) that give off fantastic aromas while applying the products. 

Still need a hair moisturizer or a toothpaste? While you can use Nefertem's natural moisturizers on the ends of your hair effectively, some may need a more liquid approach to scalp moisture. 

Try using a simply DIY recipe for hair oil using 1 part grapeseed oil, 1 part argon oil and 1 part castor oil with a few drops of tea tree, lavender and rosemary essential oils. 

Blend aluminum-free baking soda and peroxide on your toothbrush or locate a natural toothpaste DIY recipe and make your own. This way, you know exactly what is in your toothpaste.

Enjoy a Chemical-Free Skin Care Routine
