A natural formula no longer means you have to miss out on the most effective anti-aging ingredients. Some of the hardest-working anti-agers are extracts that come from berries, plants, sea vegetation, and honey. Whether you want to ease wrinkles, fight adult acne, or get a skin-smoothing face scrub, these chemical-light formulas are high-powered naturals for your skin care routine.
Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Intensive Skin Repair Serum
You've heard that blueberries are a healthy snack, but an extract from the fruit can also do wonders for your skin. This serum fights free radicals from pollution and UV exposure to prevent wrinkles and age spots.
Because it's a quick-absorbing serum, use it under night creams and day moisturizers for double-whammy skin benefits.
Sophyto Anti-Aging Kit
With a brightening treatment that contains skin-renewing marine peptides, an award-winning antioxidant serum, and a botanical-packed toner, this trio of products from Sophyto brings some of the best natural anti-agers to bargain retailer Sam's Club for way less money than when the brand was only available in boutiques.
John Masters Organics Bearberry Oily Skin Balancing Face Serum
John Masters Organics—a range of natural hair and skin products—uses unusual but potent natural extracts such as bearberry, willow bark, and rice to dry excess oil while calming irritation so your skin can better control adult acne. You can use the serum both as a full-face treatment or just when you need to heal a surprise blemish pop-up.

Nude Advanced Cellular Renewal Serum
The superhydrating hyaluronic acid, antioxidants from sea kelp, and skin-firming peptides in this pricey-yet-potent serum help you build more collagen to plump out your wrinkles and get fresher-looking skin. While carefully formulated without parabens, sulphates, phthalates, mineral oil, silicones, or other unfavored additives, the serum still manages to include power ingredients like moisturizing jojoba oil. The Nude brand's signature probiotic formula from milk also helps soothe inflammation and possibly improve skin cells' functions.
100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
From what's considered one of the most green beauty lines, this eye cream relies on coffee-derived caffeine to make your eye area look more awake and firm. In fact, there is so much caffeine, the cream has a smell of coffee as you apply it (the odor fades as it absorbs). Added antioxidants such as green tea and vitamin C also fight skin-weakening sun exposure and other damaging free radicals.
Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing and Makeup Remover
Gentle enough for the eye area, but effective enough to work makeup off skin, this new face wash's plant-derived cleansers rinse off pollutants while helping maintain a healthy, moisture-retaining barrier on your skin. Plus, it has no parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, or phthalates. This new line of naturals from the popular drugstore brand also includes other cleansers and a lip balm.
HollyBeth's Grits & Honey Scrub
When a beauty product has only four ingredients on the label, you know you have something pure. With the moisturizing honey and gentle, skin-sloughing corn meal in this scrub, you skin will feel super smooth but not tight. Almond oil and vitamin E help keep skin soft and conditioned.
TO-GO FACE CLEANSERS
Dickinson's Oil Controlling Towelettes
How can you one-up a natural, mild, but effective toner? Make it totable. These pocket-size towelette packets are perfect for freshening skin on the go. The nonirritating witch hazel won't overdry your skin or leave it red.
eos Active Care Hand and Body Lotion
Lightweight and lightly scented, this paraben-free, phthalate-free, soybean oil—packed lotion is nongreasy yet moisturizing and a smart pick for both your desk hand cream or for a summer body moisturizer. Infused oat and cucumber also help calm skin so it feels soothed and refreshed.
One After Shower Skin Conditioner
One of the best ways to keep your skin care routine eco-friendly is to lose the packaging. The brand One, available at Target, is committed to no plastic packaging. The deep skin-conditioning qualities of the oils and butters found in this body bar will smooth and heal your skin, while you feel great about your new eco-discovery.
