Paleo moisturizers

by 258 · July 02, 2014 at 03:39 AM

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?

Coconut oil. It moisturizes skin like no other oil (and it smells good too!).

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.

Also check out www.skindeep.com for safety ratings for popular personal care products.

Best skin moisturizer hands down is Sunkissed. It's made with Camelina oil. High in Vitamin E with Omega 3's to rebuild cell walls, heal scaring, relieves and can cure eczema. Better than Coconut oil. More absorbing, doesn't leave you oily. It's pure silky healing.

A little goes a long way, and it's grown organically in the USA. Great company too. I buy lots of their products.

Here's a recipe that I like more than plain coconut oil:

Varying the amount of beeswax or cocoa butter can change the texture to resemble lotion, body butter, or lip balm, but it's all good to rub everywhere.

I use coconut oil in the shower on my skin almost every day.

I also use it in my hair every couple of weeks as a moisturizer. I apply it on my dry hair, and leave it in for around 20 minutes, then rinse it out. It leaves my hair soft with a healthy shine.

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

I use several different products, sandalwood oil, rose oil, neroli oil {all essential oils blended with jojoba oil}. I also love coconut oil! Good luck!

Rose hip seed oil and plain old olive oil are both fantastic moisturizers.

I use aloe. Lily of the Desert and Fruit of the Earth are the two brands I use.

I use cosmetic-grade grapeseed oil. A thin layer after washing morning and night keeps me clear, but not too greasy under my mineral make-up.
