There are all kinds of things out there, probably in your own kitchen that can be used as a natural moisturizer. It is now time to uncover those items and see what exactly they can be used for and how they can benefit you. Next time you go to the grocery store, you will definitely look at things differently.
Keeping your skin hydrated is so very important. This is not just for woman's beauty regime, but for everyone's skin's health. We try to stay as healthy as possible these days, or at least we should, so let us not forget the outside as well as inside. Here are some amazing examples of natural moisturizers.
Avocado oil is hands down one of the best for keeping skin smooth and beautiful. If you suffer from something such as dry skin or eczema, this is definitely a natural way to relieve some of that uncomfortable factor. Avocados are loaded with different vitamins such as E, A, and even Vitamin D which is so beneficial to the skin. And in case you were wondering, it is even good for those pesky age spots that we find ourselves getting as we creep up there in age.
Mixing together fresh avocado and mayonnaise with a drop or two of Vitamin E and avocado oil is a natural face moisturizer. Just make sure after mixing the ingredients, you let it set up in the refrigerator for about a half an hour before applying into the skin so everything has a chance to combine and emulsify. Apply this mixture to your face and then rinse with warm water. This mixture will hold up for a couple of days if place in an air tight container in the fridge.
Here is another great and easy way to make a natural body moisturizer. If you are at your local drug store and see a bottle of glycerin, buy it and bring it home. Try adding a few drops of almond oil, olive oil, and avocado oil. If you have any vitamin E oil and perhaps some aloe, you can mix all of these together with a splash of water and have an addictive lotion for your whole body!
But to make it even more simple, all you really need is a bottle of olive oil. You can lather your skin with olive oil and you will come out with soft supple beautiful skin. If you decide to add some Vitamin E to your olive oil, it will make it last longer than if you don't, but it is not necessary. You can always choose to add essential oils to your olive oil for the scent and for the moisturizing effects. Jasmine and Lavender being the most popular for their calming effects, but you would only need to add a couple of drops to your oil.
Almond Oil is another one that can stand alone. It's absorbs into your skin keeping it lovely and soft. Like the olive oil, adding scents is completely acceptable. But these two are probably the cheapest way to go and will definitely get you plenty of compliments, which as we know, is never a bad thing.
Whether you make or buy, it is completely up to you on what you feel is the best natural moisturizer. There are plenty of amazing lotions and products on the market that you can purchase that may work for you. Natural brand name products work beautifully on the skin as well, so take your time to investigate what would be perfect for your skin type.
Take your time when you are looking for your natural moisturizer. Just because it may cost more money, does not mean that it necessarily better than what you can make at home. The most important thing is that you take the time to make your skin healthy and beautiful. You will thank yourself in the long run.
