Natural Oils in Moisturizers for Skin

We all use and need to moisturize our skin on a regular basis. But when coming to our facial skin should we use the same moisturizer that we use on our bodies? I hope not. Moisturizers are available in different formulas for different skin types. But so many regular moisturizers contain ingredients that can clog your pores and will not keep your skin properly hydrated.

We have come to realize that not all moisturizers are created equal. There are so many skin care products available with ingredients that causes more harm to the skin than good. Consumers go from one skin care product to the next looking for that moisturizer that will live up to its advertising claim. Many become frustrated as they find themselves on the road of empty promises.

There is a mistaken assumption that all moisturizers with oils clog the pores and lead to pimples and blackheads. This is true with moisturizers that contain mineral oils. However, there is a different breed of moisturizers that contain natural oils that are beneficial to the skin, and does not clog your pores.

A lack of knowledge when coming to your moisturizer can cause serious setbacks emotionally, as well as financially. An informed consumer can avoid those setbacks by being in a better position to make wise skin care choices. Here’s what to look for, and what to avoid when choosing a moisturizer.

For the sake of your skin’s health and vitality, avoid any moisturizer containing mineral oils and its derivatives – liquid paraffin, paraffin wax, and petrolatum. Because these oils are inexpensive and widely available, they are commonly used in skin care products. When used in facial moisturizers, mineral oil leads to clog pores resulting in pimples and blackheads. When the pores are clogged, skin cannot breathe resulting in chronic inflammation of the skin.

Moisturizers formulated with natural oils are scientifically proven to replenish skin with moisture-building protection without the side effects associated with the use of mineral oil based moisturizers.
