Learning About Natural Moisturizers And A Few Special Ingredients

Moisturizing the skin daily is must do regime and vital to the results of skin care. If you research what to look for when buying day creams your skin will look healthier and you will save money as well.

Let’s look at what the ideal moisturiser will contain.

  • Oils to nourish, especially in winter when the skin doesn't produce as much oil. Dry conditions and windy weather make the situation miles worse for the skin.
  • Hydrators to hold moisture in the skin. In warm or hot weather the skin loses a good deal of moisture (water) so special ingredients called humectants help keep the skin well hydrated and plumped.
  • Rejuvenating ingredients to help cut back wrinkles and lines. These come in the guise of peptides or Vitamins such as Vitamin C, A and E.
  • Essential omega oils that mimic our own natural oils to increase skin health.

Dry skin needs a high oil content in the cream.

Combination skin has an oily t-zone which means the forehead, nose and chin are oily. This skin type requires little to no oil in the moisturiser used.

Shiny skin can work fine with special formulations that supply moisturising in an oil free form which keep skin hydrated without oiliness.

The words “dehydrated skin” are used constantly particularly from sales assistants on cosmetic counters. All types of skin can be dehydrated and this is caused by different factors:

Dehydrated skin is short of moisture (water) – not oil. Regularly dehydration can be cured simply by drinking more water. Each coffee, tea or alcohol consumed will dry your skin. A glass of water is needed to offset each cup you drink of these beverages.

Ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, lecithin or glycerin will enhance the moisture content held in your skin and communicate a dewy plumped appearance to your skin. Hyaluronic Acid is the king of hydrators but regularly only found in Serums due to the high cost.

Natural oils including olive squalane and macadamia nut oil contain an oil profile really close to human skin. Jojoba has a similar split of necessary fatty acids while it is technically a wax and not an oil. Sweet almond and Apricot kernel oils are also advantageous to the skin. Skin health is strikingly improved when these natural oils are included in Natural Moisturiser formulations.

Studies have proved Organic Aloe Vera can enhance the rate of renewal of skin cells by many per cent when utilized in sufficient quantity. Penetration ability of Aloe Vera is second to none.

Troublesome skin often has redness present. The mineral MSM is perfect for keeping red skin tone in hand. MSM is organic sulphur (or sulfur) a nutritional supplement originally developed for arthritis and joint discomfort. Sulfur is present in each cell of the body. When formulated in a moisturiser a simple solution to redness is accomplished.

Like so many products or ingredients, a side benefit appeared early in the life of MSM, and that is the softening of skin. When consumed as a powder supplement skin is softer on the whole body not only the face. It works from the inside out. Perhaps we should call it Super skin MSM.
