Dedicated: Making the Most of Your Moisturizer

The skincare market is booming with loads of products that boast claims and benefits that sometimes seem too good to be true. If you are worried about choosing the right natural face moisturizer for you, then you just need to learn a bit more about skincare compounds. When you know why your skin is dry and what compounds will get things dewy and moist again, you can navigate the drugstore aisles and shelves with ease.

Why Your Skin is Drying Out

First things first: you need to figure out why your facial skin is so dried out and parched. While the specific reasons vary from person to person, some of the most common causes of skin dryness include environmental factors and lifestyle choices. For instance, low humidity levels suck all of the moisture out of the air (and your skin.) This leaves your face feeling itchy and rough; not a good look. Another reason could be the way you shower each day. Dousing yourself in super hot water and using rough bar soap strips away the oils from your skin cells and leaves things dry as the Sahara desert. Third, personal factors also play a key role. With age, skin gets thinner and vulnerable to dryness. Preexisting conditions such as diabetes and psoriasis also contribute to dry skin.

All the Good Stuff, None of the Bad Stuff

Now for the fun part: finding the natural face moisturizer for you. Here are some of the key components to look for in a moisturizer: Tocopherol, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Avena Strigosa Seed Extract, and Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract. Perhaps you have not heard of some of these compounds; that’s okay. Tocopherols include Vitamin E, which fights inflammation. Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil delivers healthy phytochemicals to your skin cells, while Avena Strigosa Seed Extract works to condition and moisturizer skin. Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract lightens skin to make you look more fresh-faced and radiant. On the other hand, a natural face moisturizer should never use harmful ingredients such as parabens, parfum, or Sodium Laureth Sulfate.

Maximizing Your Results

Once you have chosen the best skin care product, you want to ensure that you get the best results possible. Be sure to wash your face daily with a non-abrasive or irritating soap. Dry your face thoroughly and then apply the moisturizer. It is best to do this routine immediately after your daily shower. Finally, a healthful and balanced diet will help to deliver even more beneficial compounds to your skin and body. So skip the heavy chemicals and elaborate facial cleansers and opt for something that is natural, safe, and extremely effective. Life is too short to be worrying about your dark spots, wrinkles, and dryness!
