Natural Moisturising Creams and Magic Ingredients

Moisturising the skin daily is a crucial routine and vital to the success of skin protection. If you learn what to look for when buying moisturizers your skin will look better and you will save money as well.

Let’s examine 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 far 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 to keep the skin well hydrated and plumped.
– Rejuvenating ingredients to help scale back wrinkles and lines. These come in the guise of peptides or Vitamins like Vitamin C, A and E.
– Necessary omega oils that mimic our own natural oils to increase skin health.

Dry skin requires 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 applied.

Oily skin can work best with special formulations that supply moisturizing in an oil free form which keep skin hydrated without oiliness.

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

Dehydrated skin is low in moisture (water) – not oil. Regularly dehydration can be remedied by drinking more water. Each cup of coffee, tea or alcohol consumed will dehydrate your skin. A drink of water is needed to offset each cup you drink of these drinks.

Ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, lecithin or glycerin will enhance the moisture content held in your skin and impart a dewy plumped appearance to your skin. Hyaluronic Acid is the king of hydrators but often only found in Serums because of how expensive it is.

Natural oils including olive squalane and macadamia nut oil contain an oil profile very close to human skin. Jojoba has a similar break up of necessary fatty acids although it is in fact a wax and not an oil. Sweet almond and Apricot kernel oils are also useful to the skin. Skin health is strikingly improved when these natural oils areutilised in Natural Moisturiser formulations.

Research has shown Organic Aloe Vera can enhance the rate of regeneration of skin cells by many times when utilized in sufficient quantity. Penetration ability of Aloe Vera is legendary.

Troublesome skin typically has redness present. The mineral MSM is perfect for keeping redness in order. MSM is organic sulphur (or sulfur) a nutritive supplement originally developed for arthritis and joint agony. Sulfur exists in each cell of the body. When included in a moisturiser a straightforward solution to redness is accomplished.

Like so many products or ingredients, a side benefit emerged early in the life of MSM, and that’s the softening of skin. When taken as a powder supplement skin is softer on the whole body not just the face. It works from the interior out. Perhaps we should call it amazing MSM.
