The Best Farm-Inspired Beauty Products

Farm-to-table has become a mainstream idea in restaurants and homes alike, according to CNN. But harnessing Mother Nature's goodness isn't just for foodies, of course. Some of the best beauty trends have historically relied on natural ingredients such as milk, salt, oats, and honey. In a beauty report by Marie Claire, the long list of Egyptian beauty secrets includes using sesame oil to deter wrinkles and burnt almonds as an eyebrow filler.

These days, we generally don't char our own eyebrow almonds (though, admittedly, it might be a fun Galentine's Day project). Instead, we rely on the experts to curate farm-fresh beauty products ranging from serums and masks to cleansers. 

In addition to serving up hydration and nutrients, farm-inspired skincare can be a natural alternative to harsh chemicals. In an interview with Well + Good, board-certified dermatopathologist Gretchen Frieling, MD, brings up the important reminder that "your skin is your body's largest organ, and what you put on it gets absorbed through your pores and into your body."

So, if you love clean beauty trends, take advantage of nature's bounty and freshen up your beauty basics with a little farm-to-face radiance.

The celery stalk acts as a magic wand in this skin-plumping serum

Celery is loaded with moisture and antioxidants, according to WebMD, and the folks at Sweet Chef have put it to good use. This skin-plumping Celery + Hyaluronic Acid Serum Shot combines celery and mixed green sprouts, and it's infused with hyaluronic acid. The website lets you search for kale, beets, ginger, and more. 

This drugstore beauty buy gets rave reviews on Byrdie, which gives it a big, green thumbs-up. Swooping in at a less than $25, it has turned the unassuming celery stalk into a magic wand.

Follow in the footsteps of a queen with this plant-based beauty brand

Radishes and melons, oh my! Dehiya Beauty, a Black-owned, plant-based beauty brand, is named for the North African Queen of the Amazigh ("free people"). She was a mighty warrior, and these beauty products channel all of that and more. The brand honors traditional skincare with ingredients like radish, Kalahari melon, and geranium. Their uncomplicated vision of beauty includes inclusivity across all skin tones and ages. Check out the Safi Mist for a boost of hydration and antioxidants, or level up your glow with their lip and cheek tints.

Indulge in skincare that is harvested and created at NY's Stonegate Farm

Grown on the gracious lands of Stonegate Farm in New York, Cultivate Apothecary offers a complete line of skincare. Co-founders Jill Rowe and Matthew Benson are the self-described "blissed-out stewards" of the farm that they describe as a "magical and productive piece of earth." Their Exfoliating Botanical Mask has an ingredient list that boasts rose clay, quince fruit, lady's mantle, calendula flower, aronia berry, comfrey leaf, and lemon balm. Orchard-grown quince fruit and formulas blended by hand? Yes, please!

Use a fresh honey mask to achieve hydrated, glowy skin

Made in California, Oak Essentials is the gorgeous beauty brainchild of the lifestyle brand Jenni Kayne. Although they have an easy-breezy minimalist vibe, there is one thing they're vehemently against. Their all-natural products are free from colorants, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, petroleum, mineral oil, silicones, PEGs, and nanoparticles. So if you're looking for more make-up-free days, grab Zoe Report's recommendation — the Restorative Mask — and harness the power of its honey.

Boost your skin's radiance with pumpkin puree and yogurt

Whipped pumpkin and yogurt. Nope, it's not a smoothie; it's your skin's new go-to de-gunker. FarmHouse Fresh offers the Quick Recovery Face Mask Sampler: a trio of their unique masks featuring pumpkin, avocado, and tapioca. Don't let the simple ingredients fool you. Lauded by Coveteur for their use of potent produce, FarmHouse Fresh is an expert in skincare, body care, and fragrance. They grow and harvest their own signature microgreens for their products, which is enough to pique our interest. 

Include carrots in your beauty routine for natural radiance

Esker's Restorative Oil took a loving romp through the garden to deliver its goal of reducing the appearance of aging by way of carrots' antioxidant-rich properties. The much-loved brand has fans at Vogue and has us clamoring for fresh beauty buys. The serum is bottled in recyclable glass and includes a wee-packet of pollinator-friendly wildflower seeds. So, make room in your skincare routine and on a sunny window sill; Esker's delivering beauty for both. (You simply need to understand the most common newbie gardening mistakes before growing those seeds.)

All-in-all, farm-to-table beauty is the beauty bounty you need for natural radiance and glow regardless of the season.
