10 Alcohol Free All Natural Body Moisturizersadmin - July 16, 2022
A great place to start eliminating chemicals from your beauty care routine is with a good alcohol free all natural body moisturizer. Generally when people use these they are covering their entire bodies from head to toe and they remain on your skin for long periods of time. Even worse, most moisturizers contain petroleum based ingredients such as alcohol, fragrance and other chemicals contributing to an increase in dry skin and of course an increase in sales of all things “moisturizing.”
Years ago, prior to my obsession with natural skin products, I purchased just about every skin lotion on the market in search for relief of my very dry skin. While these lotions may initially make your skin feel better when you apply it, they actually dry out and damage your skin; the more you apply, the dryer your skin becomes and the more you will need.
The growth of body moisturizers has also led to more sensitivities, redness, itching and rashes. Simply eliminating your current dry skin products and replacing them with all natural, chemical free products can drastically change your skin health. Lotions that contain “-cones” such as dimethicone, alcohol, fragrance or other chemicals can mask the underling problem and actually advance the aging process.
Instead of sinking into your skin and nourishing it from the inside out, like healthy ingredients do, it forms a sort of plastic-like barrier on the outside of skin. Your skin is now dependent on the barrier which disrupts the skin’s won hydrating process which increases dryness, making your skin look older. This barrier may also increase breakouts.
The best natural body moisturizers should be rich in butters and oils such as shea butter, almond oil and avocado oil. Choose products with as little synthetic ingredients as possible. Better yet, make your own.
Harmful Lipstick Ingredients
Is Your Lipstick Making You Sick
Chemically sensitive people may get negative symptoms from makeup that include headaches, nausea, lack of concentration, asthma attacks, fatigue and irritability. Now you can blame it on the lipstick!
Harmful products in your lip products:
Alcohol-drying and irritating. Forms of alcohol include cetyl, cetearyl, behentrimonium, and methosulfate.
Lanolin-sounds healthy doesn’t it? Lanolin is the fatty secretion from sheep’s wool and has been known to cause allergic reactions. It may also be contaminated with pesticides as it is a powerful absorbing agent.
Mineral Oil– another healthy sounding ingredient. This is a petroleum derivitive, harsh on skin and is known to cause severe allergic reactions. It also clogs pours.
Petroleum-HELLO?? Would this be the same stuff we run our vehicles on?
Preservatives– extends shelf life of products just as in our food and can be toxic.
This is what should be in your lip products:
Aloe Vera– moisturizes and tones with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities.
Avocado Oil– contains vitamin A, D, E, fatty acids and is easily absorbed into the skin.
Beeswax-is a skin softener that helps lock in skins own moisture
Jojoba Oil– nourishes, lubricates, and softens
Natural Colors-beet powder, beta carotene, grape skin extract, turmeric and annatto.
Peppermint-a natural lip plumper
Shea Butter-a natural UV blocker
Sweet Almond Oil-soothes and heals and rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins
Vitamin E– a powerful antioxidant and barrier against sun damage.
