3 Potent Natural Ingredients For Glowing Youthful Skin

There is nothing better than using pure, natural ingredients to make your skin feel healthy and look glowy!

In this post, I’d like to share a few key ingredients influenced by Moroccan traditions that will leave your skin looking amazing. I’ve used these amazing ingredients myself for years.

Growing up, my mother and grandmother used these amazing ingredients to maintain their natural glowing skin. Below I’ll share these amazing ingredients and how to use them daily and weekly.

3 Natural Ingredients For Glowing Youthful Skin

Rose Water

Rose water is water distilled from rose petals, which you can purchase and make on your own.

Rose water provides a ton of benefits for your skin and it’s so versatile as well. One of the things that it’ll help you with is soothing any skin inflammation and it can balance the pH levels, so you can use it as a toner.

How To Use Rose Water for Glowing Skin:

I love to keep things simple. I love to use rose water as a facial toner or mist. I keep a small spray bottle in the fridge, and once or twice a day.

When I open the fridge and spot the bottle, I spray it on my face and neck, using a clean towel to dab and remove any excess water. This feels so refreshing on hot summer days, and it keeps your skin hydrated.

Ghassoul Clay

Ghassoul clay is commonly used in Morocco for detoxifying and cleansing the skin, leaving it feeling so smooth and radiant.

Ghassoul is a unique type of clay and it is usually used during a shower or bath. Growing up in Morocco, most women would use it in the hammam, as a kid I never really understood its benefits until now.

Ghassoul effectively absorbs excess oil, dirt, and impurities from the skin while leaving all the good natural oils in it! So you end up with this super smooth skin after using it.

How to Use Ghassoul Clary for Glowing Skin:

I’d like to share two ways to use Ghassoul Clay based on how Moroccan women use it!

Body Skin Cleanse:

The first way is to apply it during a warm bath or shower. Exfoliate your skin well, and after you’re done, apply it to your skin and let it sit for a few minutes. You can also add it to your hair and then rinse your body.

Facial Mask:

The second way is to mix ghassoul clay with rose water (for extra potency) and apply it to your face. Relax for a few minutes until it dries, then rinse it off with warm water.

I find that using it once a week is enough.

It’s so important to keep your skincare as clean as possible. I discovered Ann Marie after spending months searching for a truly ‘clean’ company. I tried the Serum and cleanser and never looked back. Their ingredients are wild-crafted and smell amazing naturally. If you want the best skin care for your skin, check out this offer they sent me to sample their amazing products!

Prickly Pear Seed Oil

The next ingredient I’d like to share is Prickly Pear seed oil, which you may or may not have heard of.


Prickly pears are actually one of my favorite fruits. They come from the cactus fruit, and I grew up eating them every summer. When I discovered that prickly pear oil is actually one of the most luxurious and highly prized oils for the skin, I had to get my hands on some.

Prickly pear seed oil is a potent anti-aging oil rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids.

How to Use Prickly Pear Seed Oil

Simply use a few drops and massage into your face. I like to apply it in the morning rather than before bed because if you apply oils before sleep, the pillow absorbs most of it.

I usually love using Ann Marie’s anti-aging serum before bed as it sticks more to your skin and does not get wiped by the pillow.
