WARNING, WARNING, PRODUCT OVERLOAD! We are all drowning in products...creams, butters, and lotions galore. I know it, you know it, we all do it and we don’t know why...well, we kind of do when you think about it. When it comes to finding that perfect moisturizer that moisturizes your skin without making it oily and clogging pores, protects you from the sun, all while making you glow like the star you are...we fail more often than not. Then we keep testing products, and adding products for different benefits and next thing you know, you have four daily moisturizers.
Don’t worry honey, we got the lowdown. Ingredients. Yes, the ingredients on the back of any and every moisturizer you would ever consider putting on your skin. Of course, we can’t go through all the crazy ingredients you will see, but if its a 17 letter, hard to pronounce due to the syllable overload [word]; put that bottle down! We never recommend using chemicals and/or silicones ever, and especially in your moisturizer. Many moisturizers will give your skin a nice little film that will make it feel oh so soft and smooth. But, here’s a few key ingredients to look for that are proven to moisturize even oily skin without clogging pores.
Some of our favorite natural moisturizers and natural oils we keep in our kitchens, such as one of my mother's favorites, olive oil. When you see the way olive oil can smooth your skin, help with its elasticity, and heal scars you will want to pour it on your entire life! See more of our favorite natural moisturizers or moisturizing ingredients below:
- Coconut oil
- Sunflower seed oil
- Aloe Vera
- Shea butter
- Lavender oil (oily prone)
- Rosewater (oily)
Now of course we have need for our skin besides just moisture and it is for that exact reason that we are absolutely addicted to the Melan-in Serum +MPF!
