We all already know the importance of using moisturizers in our skin care routine; moisturizing your skin is one of the most important step in your skin care routine. But, there are a variety of moisturizers, it can be a little confusing to choose the best one for you. Also, before we know it, winter will be around the corner and using a great moisturizer all year round especially during winter just goes a long ways.
So, in this blog post, I share with you all that I learned about moisturizing the natural way!!
Different Types Of Natural Moisturizers
There are mainly four different types of natural moisturizers: gels, lotions, creams, and ointments. Even though moisturizers can be divided into these four categories, you need to keep in mind that they are all a mix of water and lipids (fat).
There are 6 types of natural moisturizers
Gels are water-based lotions that are lightweight. They tend to be the least greasy and the lightest type of moisturizers. They easily absorb into skin and are usually a mixture of ingredients that include a liquid lipid base, alcohol, and water.
As soon as you apply the gel on your face, you will immediately feel a cool and refreshing sensation since gels tend to evaporate quickly. Gel moisturizers work well with sensitive skin and acne prone skin.
#2: Oil-free moisturizers
These moisturizers are similar to gel moisturizers. They are lightweight and do not clog the pores; they are generally non-comedogenic. They work great for acne-prone and blemish-prone skin.
#3: Facial oils or serums
You might not think facial oils and serums should be included here, but they are lightweight and packed with moisturizing ingredients. They work great for mature skin and sensitive skin. Facial serum are best for any types of skin; they are formulated to target a specific skin concern: skin brightening, aging sign concerns, and more. They are a mix of high quality oils and extracts that have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and hydrating properties. The molecules of facial serum have smaller molecules to deeply penetrate the skin.
Facial oils are different than facial moisturizers; they are made from various natural oils. The molecules in facial oils are bigger than those in facial serums, so they stay at the top layers of the skin to moisturize, balance, and protect our skin. These oils are super effective because they are easily recognized by the skin; they mimic our skin’s natural sebum production.
Today, Let’s talk about dealing with wrinkles naturally. I wrote about the subject many times, but aging gracefully requires me to keep talking about it and share more about natural ways to deal with wrinkles. .
It is all about aging gracefully
I refuse to be part of a system that tells us that wrinkles are bad or that we have lost our beauty because we have wrinkles and fine lines. No, we are more graceful as we age and wrinkles are part of us becoming more who we are and that’s ok.
I hope we can love every part of our body or learn how to love every part of our body.
So, as you can imagine this blog post not going to be about products that are harsh on the face to shape up those wrinkles. This blog post is about how we can gently care for our beautiful skin that has been serving us so well throughout the decades.
There are specific natural ways to deal with wrinkles, fine lines, and crow's feet.
As we age our skin acts different too. And, we need to create a specific skin care routine to take care of it. Fine lines and wrinkles are usually at the corners of our eyes, our forehead, and the lines between your eyebrows.
In the blog post you will find:
I was at my one of my favorite natural and organic stores Mom’s Organic, and I saw the Cocokind Mymatcha all-over moisturizing stick at $8.99; of course I love this musti-tasker moisturizing stick, so I bought it.
Then later on, one of my followers commented about the high price tag of organic and natural products. She explained how she really wanted to switch to safer beauty products, but they were too expensive. Some of us always wonder if it possible to have a natural skin care routine on a budget. And, the answer is YES!!!
There are great natural and organic products on the market that will leave you with a luxury feeling without breaking the bank. So, I wanted to write a blog post about that.

Last spring, I posted about transitioning to natural deodorants. Spring is one of the best times of the year to switch to natural deodorant and so is fall.
But, switching to natural deodorants is a challenge for so many of us that I wanted to write more about it. Our body and pits are re-adapting when we switch from antiperspirants to natural deodorants and work differently.
Few things I learned along the way.

Fall is just near around the corner as well as winter. One of the first reaction to the first sign of cooler weather is to put on something one to keep us warm. We also typically switch take a closer look at your wardrobe to get our light jackets and coats out. We get prepared, but we often forget that we have to do the same with our skin and ensure that your skin is ready to embrace the cooler temperatures.
In case you have never noticed, your skin tends to appear less radiant and duller and more tired when we change season. This happens when summer becomes fall, fall becomes winter, winter becomes spring, and spring becomes summer. All year round, our skin needs to adapt to the newer season. And, we need to help our skin by tweaking our skin care routine when seasons change.
If you take some minutes to think about it, it makes all the sense in the world. While when we are in the summer, you wear less clothes, but when fall and winter come, we switch to long sleeves shirts and heavy coats to protect us from the cooler weather. Why not do that for the skin on our face too? We noticed that our skin looks more dull and tired during fall and summer. Why not set ourselves up to keep a healthy skin during the cooler months of the year?!
