Malin and Goetz

I found this new all natural brand at Barney's over the weekend. Smells great and they have a full line of products.

I'm a big fan of water as well- nothing nourishes the skin as much as drinking a ton of water.

I don't know if this is very "organic", but I use Cetaphil every day. It keeps my skin soft and hydrated, and doesn't smell. I found that when I used fancy moisturizers with all those extra herbs, extracts, oils, etc, I would develop skin allergies over time. Cetaphil just seems cleaner and lighter to me, works great too!

Aveda's Moisturizing Lotion-- it's to die for! At night I add a drop of their nighttime serum to the lotion, in the morning I use it by itself, after the Aveda toner.

For serious moisturization, I use The Body Shop's Shea Body Butter on my limbs. In winter, my face gets so ridiculously dry that I use it there too - otherwise I'm reapplying facial moisturizer (Anew, Roc, Oil of Olay, etc - I've tried a bunch) every 2 hours to keep flakiness at bay.

Olive Oil mimics the oils found in your skin so you can try that.

Water does not moisturize your skin. It hydrates and transports nutrients throughout your body. Beauty magazines used to advise their readers to do that, but lately those same magazines have been presenting that statement as a myth.

Organic/All Natural is not always best for your skin because the ingredients may irritate or cause an allergic reaction.

I STRONGLY recommend that you check out www.cosmeticscop.com and educate yourself about what works and does not.

I have found that "organic" products irritate my skin - and I am not allergic to anything! Sometimes, organic does not mean better. I love Aveeno - very natural with the oatmeal, and smells the best!

a great organic moisturizer is plain jojoba oil (or moisturizers that use jojoba oil). You can find it at an organic food store...i'm not sure where else but you can probably google it to find but jojoba oil is one of the closest matches to human sebum oil. i know it sounds strange to use oil to moisturize your face but it actually helps regulate oil production on your skin and works like a miracle. plus, you don't need much (three to four drops) to do your whole face so it lasts you quite awhile. if you tend to get a little red sometimes, you can get jojoba oil with neroli essential oil mixed in but basic jojoba oil is fine. google it and read reviews if you don't believe me but i promise you it's great!!!

you have to check to see if your natural products have only partly natural ingredients, if they have petrolem by-products (NOT good for skin) or if the botanical ingredients in them are certified organic ingredients. Really, there is no standard for labelling products all natural.

That being said, I have to agree with the Nutri-Metics Nutri-Moist Intense- but only for winter. Summer I just use their Nutri-Moist.

Pharmagel

Pharmagel's Glyco 8 is the best product I have ever used. It acts as an exfoliating agent as well as protects from the sun(SPF 8).The immediate effect is radiant,glowing skin.Whats best is it can be used around the eyes and mouth & you dont need any extra eye-care stuff.

Try it..its a bargain.

I swear by Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizer. It sinks right into your skin in 2 seconds, and really makes your skin nice and soft - and with no lingering smell.

I always use natural products in my face to moisturize it. I like coconut oil and olive oil 30 mins before bath. It's wonderful!

Plain coconut oil is what I use, it's really helped my skin stay evenly moisturized, so I no longer get the annoying combination of big zits AND dry, flaky patches. I use a loofah on my face to exfoliate and then afterwards I'll apply a small amount. I tend to put more on after a shower.

All natural, less than 1% perservative skin care!

By far the most effective natural/organic as well as effective skin product I've ever used is Arbonne's moisturizers. Everything in their products comes from a plant, a nut, a fruit, or tree...only a small amount of perservatives are used to ensure shelf life. Let me know if you are interested! I'd love to share more about the products and the Arbonne opportunities (swrobleski@gmail.com).

Grape Seed Oil

I also use grape seed oil stored in a small glass bottle. You can buy grape seed oil at most grocery stores usually next to the olive oil.

Grape seed oil is 'lighter' than olive oil and therefore seems to sink in your skin much faster than olive oil. Since oil and sun don't mix very well, and my skin is too oily in the T-zone to wear under sunscreen, I only use the oil at night - overnight. I find that after I wash my face with a shea or oilve oil soap in the morning, I don't need to add additional moisturizer, so I just apply sunscreen - Kiss My Face, face and neck.

Other oils/butters can be used on your face and boy as well.

Shea butter
Coconut butter/oil
Grape seed
Argan oil - seems to be in many products at the moment. Can be purchased at specialty grocery store or on amazon.com

If you want a simple prepackage product, try L'Occitane Shea Butter Mom & Baby Balm.

Ingredients:
Coconut oil
Shea butter
Grape seed oil
Vegetable oil
Oat kernel flour
Sunflower seed oil
Shea butter extract
Rosemary leaf extract
Calendula flower extract

Best Skin product known

By far the best skin product known is shea butter (raw). Shea is naturally rich in vitamins A, E & F which are some essential vitamins needed for good skin balance and over a dozen of minerals. In its raw state, it is completely free of chemicals, Shea Butter moisturizes & protects skin & scalp, especially over processed & heat-treated hair. Shea Butter penetrates deep into skin to help restore elasticity. Shea Butter doesn't clog pores & block hair shaft. Shea butter consists of linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids, the three essential fatty acids for the skin.

Known benefits:

- Helps heal scars, burns, and stretch marks
- Fortifies cuticles and nails
- Helps drain toxins from sore muscles: perfect for sports participants.
- Helps prevent skin irritation for babies (diaper rash) used for generations to help babies sleep better.
- Use after shaving to prevent irritation and restore skins natural luster.
- Ideal for dry skin, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and athletes foot.
- Rejuvenates skin pores and adds elasticity to skin.
- Firms up aging skin and helps clear wrinkles.
- Massage shea butter into areas affected by arthritis, join pains, or other muscular ache.

an organic moisturizer

a great moisturizer for my face is the Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer - 100% organic and chemical free....

there's no worrisome ingredients (I use mostly natural products). I have sensitive, acne-prone combination skin, and this is so good at soothing redness and fading acne scars. It also speeds up the healing of existing blemishes. It's got so many uses that I recommend it and feel it's a great buy and a medicine cabinet staple, especially for people trying to use natural products.

pure aloe vera

sorry, don't know if this was mentioned already, but: try pure aloe vera! It's absolutely fabulous! But you have to watch out to really get pure stuff. In most cremes and lotions there only is a small amount of aloe vera and the rest are other ingredients. But there are some (organic) brands which do have creme with 90% pure aloe vera. I always have issues with dry skin - especially in the winter - and this really helped me a lot. You might also want to check aloe vera juice or capsules to moisterize "from the inside". ;-)

Jason

In the winter time I use Jason vitamin E cream; comes in a jar and works GREAT.
For cleansers, I've tried so many products and keep coming back to the same one; it is by Paula's Choice (lady from Cosmetics Cop!) called Skin Recovery Cleanser. It is not organic/natural but she only uses quality ingredients in her products which are suitable for sensitive skin. It is the ONLY cleanser in which I wash my face and it does not feel tight/dry. Amazing stuff!
I also LOVE the Dr. Weil products from Origin; their is a moisturizer and serum that is heavenly.
