Ever since going on paleo I have been much more health conscious in all kinds of ways. I'm sleeping more and trying to take better care of my skin. I have been using a normal moisturizing lotion to try to keep my skin healthy and young. Lately I have heard that any moisturizer with alcohol is bad for your skin long term. I also heard that to stay young looking you need to use some sort of firming product to maintain elasticity. I spent an hour at CVS the other day trying to find an alcohol free moisturizer. My philosophy is the fewer the ingredients the better and all the moisturizers in CVS have like 100 ingredients I can't pronounce. Does anyone know any good moisturizers which are alcohol free and will help you look better long term, not just short term? How about an anti aging face and/or eye cream?
Raw shea butter, raw cocoa butter and expeller pressed coconut oil. You can find the shea butter and cocoa butter on Amazon (conventional lotions claiming to have these ingredients are usually also loaded with chemical crap.)
Shea butter works best on my skin, but raw cocoa butter smells HEAVENLY! I don't use coconut oil too much since it's greasier than the other 2 options.
Check out vintagetraditon.com . I bought some grassfed tallow balm there that I really like (the nearly fragrance free one which contains tallow, olive oil and essential oils). The site also tells you how to make it.

I use aloe. Lily of the Desert and Fruit of the Earth are the two brands I use.
ive found cocnut oil to be really good, but if i wear it on a sunny day it helps sun damage, along with any other oil iver ever used but coconut oil moreso, great tanning oil, although tanning=damaged skin
ive found its best to eat lots of fat & then not need to moisturize
pig lard is great*strong text* but smells bad
