I take this simple philosophy when it comes to my kitchen. I try to keep things simple and stress-free while still nourishing my family with the very best real food. This year I decided this approach to simplicity needed to transfer to more than just my kitchen. After all, I do write a blog called Live Simply. Simply being a key word.
Does your skin feel uncomfortably tight right after you walk out of the shower? And does the dry feeling refuse to go away even after you have tried all the products available on the market? Treating dry skin can be truly annoying. But the good news is, I have got you covered. Nothing can make your skin as happy as natural ingredients.
I never thought I was a sucker for marketing. You know those counters, the ones with the ladies wearing lab coats oooh, how science-y! I thought those products were better for my skin.
Along with oil cleansing for my face, I now exclusively moisturize with natural oils, and here's my big tip: different types of skin will "like" different oils on the list below. I have found that for my skin, coconut and olive oils are the most effective, quickly absorbing and pleasant to me. I don't think it's any coincidence that my great-grandmother and grandmother also used olive oil for moisturizing. So if you are new to using natural oils, check out a few different ones — many of these can be found in the kitchen, making sampling easy — and see which ones your skin responds to the best.
