If you have recently shopped for skincare products, it is difficult to ignore the influx of products marketing all-natural, organic ingredients. Although some of these products still use harsh, chemical ingredients in spite of their claims, there’s reason to look at why natural ingredients are becoming extremely popular. Packed with skin-loving vitamins and able to penetrate even the driest skin, ingredients such avocado oil and shea butter provide superb anti-aging benefits, long-lasting moisture, and can be lifesavers for people with sensitive, irritable skin. So nasty chemicals aside, let’s examine the benefits of some of nature’s best defenders against dry skin:
Sweet Almond Oil - For a glowing, radiant complexion, a touch of sweet almond oil will do the trick. Essential vitamins A, B, and E, sweet almond oil deeply nourishes the skin and can cure body rashes or skin irritation.
Sunflower Oil - Sunflower oil is known for its high Vitamin E content. It keeps skin hydrated longer, can delay the aging process, soothes rough or inflamed skin, and combats environmental harm.
Castor Oil - Castor oil works wonders on skin problems such as acne, sunburn, stretch marks and dry skin. It is also high in fatty acids and can increase the collagen and elastin in the skin, making it a powerful anti-aging product.
Avocado Oil - Rich in omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E, avocado oil helps decrease skin inflammation and infuses moisture into dry, aging, or irritated skin.
Jojoba Oil - Ideal for strengthening the skin and hydration, jojoba oil is one of the most effective multi-use products. Technically a wax, jojoba oil is composed in a way that mimics our skin’s natural oils, making for quick absorption and hydrated, healthy skin.
Olive Oil - Like jojoba oil, olive oil mimics our skin’s natural oils and is readily absorbed. It is best for ultra dry skin, and although a bit heavy for the face, it makes an excellent moisturizer for dehydrated skin on the body.
Beeswax- Commonly mixed into cold creams and lotions, beeswax creates a protective shield on the skin, preventing it from aggravation while still allowing it to breathe.
Shea butter- Among its extensive list of benefits, shea butter provides natural sun defense, promotes a supple, youthful complexion, and has been used for centuries for treating eczema, scars, stretch marks, and irritation resulting from psoriasis. It can also be used to treat the sensitive skin of infants.
