I may be just a little biased, but I think Natural Face Therapy is one of the best natural skincare blogs around. And I’m sure the thousands of others who interact daily with the blog could also attest.
It covers areas of natural skincare for women over 30 that few others do (like our Clear Skin Diet). And our DIY anti-aging skincare recipes, like Star Anise Skin Tightening Toner, 6 Foods to Eat (and Wear) for Bright Clear Skin, and Star Anise Anti-aging Facial Moisturizer, are some of our most popular posts.
However, outside of this blog, there are a good number of other voices in the natural skincare arena that deserve some recognition. These natural beauty blogs share scores of anti-aging tips. They teach you about natural (and organic) skincare, cosmetics and products. They also introduce you to makeup techniques that may just change your life.
Though you may find that not everything these sites cover is all-natural, they do at least include some information on natural beauty. They also have a holistic, natural approach to skincare. With this in mind, here are my top 25 picks for natural skincare blogs for women over 30 that really deliver:
The Glow Getter is a hub for women to become informed, have fun and explore a greener, more natural side to the beauty industry. It covers topics ranging from natural skincare and makeup, to health and wellness.
One Love Organics embraces “the simplicity and the knowledge that you can achieve more with less.” This skincare brand was born out of founder, Suzanne’s, love for beauty rituals. The blog offers skincare tips and reviews about the brand’s luxury skincare line.
The Natural Beauty Workshop blog features recipes, tips, and inspiration. The site was originally geared for professional beauty and personal care product manufacturers, soap makers, and aspiring artisans. However, I’ve found that anyone can benefit from their natural skincare information.
Site founder, Francheska, spent years battling a painful chronic illness. She went on to heal herself through studies of alternative medicine, nutrition and fitness.

Viva Woman is a Singapore beauty blog with a focus on natural skin care and holistic living. The site’s founder, Sesame, started the blog as a way to “keep up with beauty, to find out more about anti-aging for my own benefit, and to share these information relevant to the modern women of today.”
Beauty by Britanie is a lifestyle blog that takes a complete look at fashion, beauty, and wellness from the inside, out.

Beauty blogger, Inga, started Organic Beauty Blogger as a way to share her thoughts about green beauty products because she knew others could benefit from this information. Her site reviews various green beauty products and offers honest feedback.

The Organic Life was born out of founder Tara’s use of holistic techniques to heal her chronic illnesses. She went cold turkey off of fourteen daily medications, healing herself naturally. She’s been on a conscious quest to move humanity in a more sustainable, healthy, and holistic direction ever since and shares her findings here.
Founded by two friends, Danielle and Prudence, Beauty By Earth was created by asking a question that is so often considered these days: how can you find health and beauty products that are safe to use around young children? Because they found it difficult to find products that were effective, easy to access, and natural, they decided to make them. You’ll find “all natural skin care products that harmonize with your body’s natural state” here on their site.
