Let’s be honest, we all want to have soft glowy skin. And with all these products in the market promising to do this and the other, it’s hard to find what will give you the best results.

One way you can turn your skin care routine around is by using natural products. They have so many wonderful benefits that you wouldn’t want to miss out on.

Natural products work for different skin types, they restore that natural glow and they’re not as reactive as chemical infused products. You should also know that chemicals can strip the moisture away and leave your skin looking dull and dry.

Here is a list of powerful natural moisturizers that are worth trying out.

1. Coconut oil

This is one of the best moisturizers you can ever use. It enhances collagen production which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it has antifungal and antibacterial properties to keep your skin healthy. It also tones your skin and helps it retain that moisture balance throughout. Coconut oil will also soften your skin and give it a natural glow. The best way to use it is by applying it as a nighttime moisturizer before bed because it can darken your skin when used as a day time moisturizer.

2. Raw Shea butter

Shea butter has been used for skin care for a very long time now. It has more benefits than you can count which is why it’s so popular. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, collagen boosting and UV protecting properties. It also deeply moisturizes your skin so it’s perfect for dry skin types. Shea butter can be used to heal acne scars and soothe razor bumps as well. It gives you way more perks than just moisturizing.

3. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is powerful for both health and beauty benefits. It’s dermatologically approved and it’s great for your hair too. Since it’s mostly made of water, it works even for very sensitive skin. Aloe hydrates your skin directly and it also improves its elasticity. Aside from that, it prevents wrinkles and fine lines so your skin will be rejuvenated. Some of the ways you can use it is by applying it topically after bathing and putting a few pieces in your bath water. You can extract the gel directly from the plant or get it per-packaged from stores.

4. Cocoa butter

Cocoa butter has powerful benefits for your skin. This butter increases blood flow for that young-looking skin, it brightens so you’ll look more radiant and it also protects your skin it from sun damage-don’t skip on your sunscreen though. It will intently moisturize your skin and improve its elasticity as well.

As you incorporate these natural skin care remedies, remember to drink plenty of water. Your skin needs to be moisturized from the inside as well which is why you should drink enough water daily.

You should also do a patch test even when using natural products. Allergic reactions are possible even with these organic oils, gels and butters.

And lastly, use them with moderation.
