Moisturizing is an important component to keeping your skin soft, supple and young-looking. It’s something that you should be doing religiously whether you have dry or oily skin. The application of a high quality facial moisturizer is essential because it can effectively lock in moisture by creating a light barrier sitting on your skin.
These days, there are hundreds of facial moisturizers available on the market. Many of them will tell you that they are the ones that can help you look beautiful by making your skin soft and keeping at bay those fine lines and wrinkles. But as soon as you check out the list of ingredients, it seems like an entirely different story is told.
Many of the moisturizers out there intended for facial application contain harsh and artificial ingredients. If you think that not putting them in your mouth won’t ruin your health, think again. Your skin is a semi-permeable organ, which means some of the chemicals in the products you apply on it may be absorbed. Once already in the bloodstream, they can easily get to your various tissues and organs to accumulate there and cause all sorts of problems in the long run.
Also, some of these chemicals may cause an array of acute side effects on your skin. Especially if you’re sensitive to them, it’s not unlikely for you to end up with red, itchy and irritated skin. It’s exactly for this reason why the best moisturizer for you is something which contains no chemical that can do more harm than good.
That is why coming up with your very own facial moisturizer is oftentimes a smarter idea than stepping foot inside the local supermarket, pharmacy or beauty shop to get your hands on a commercially-available moisturizing product. Applying something created at home can give you peace of mind because you know exactly the kinds of ingredients used. When you know that the product contains mild and all-natural ingredients, you can focus more on being beautiful.
Below you will find a very simple DIY facial moisturizer recipe. What’s so nice about it is it’s so easy to make because you only have to use 3 different ingredients which may be easily purchased. Each one of them helps soften skin and hydrate the cells in truly unique ways. Read on to get started!
