Natural Moisturizers for Oily Skin
When moisturizing oily skin it is important to stay away from ingredients that may actually worsen your complexion. Some synthetic ingredients may do more harm than good. Learn what ingredients to avoid and how to use a more natural approach to moisturizing your oily skin.
“Moisturizing is beneficial for all skin types; even oily skin. The challenge for individuals with oily skin is finding a product line that provides nutrition for the skin through the use of natural oils and plant based ingredients. These ingredients are essential in balancing the skin providing a clear, youthful complexion.
Read your product labels. If the majority of the ingredients in your skincare products are unrecognizable it’s probably not the best for your skin. Individuals with oily skin should especially avoid synthetic ingredients such as mineral oil, as it simply coats the skin and provides no nutritional value. The result in using such products increases the potential of clogged pores which leads to unwanted breakouts.
The best moisturizers for oily skin are light-weight products that include ingredients such as Goat’s Milk, an excellent emollient that promotes restoring the skin’s natural pH balance. Monoi de Tahiti (a natural and unique blend of cosmetic quality coconut oil and the natural essence of tiare flowers – Tahitian gardenia) is legendary in promoting healthy, flawless skin of all types. Cocoa, Shea, & Mango Butters are also natural treats for the skin when used sparingly. These are some examples of what to look for when determining which products may work best for you.
Moisturizing is good for everybody and as we age, it is especially important to make it a part of our daily ritual replenishing the natural oils that our skin loses over time.”
