Our Skin the Largest Organ

Daily moisturizing is vital for healthy skin, yet some think of it as an aesthetically inclined habit. Our skin is the body’s largest organ and requires regular attention to stay young, blemish-free and healthy. To understand how moisturizing your skin is important, read further.

What Moisturizer to Use

Regularly using lotion and moisturizer should be a part of any good skin care regimen, but some are better than others. Consider organic ingredients which are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals. With that, you can be sure your skin and body absorb only real ingredients to maintain health and wellbeing.

When to Moisturize

With most showering, hot water can strip away oils out of your skin, leaving it parched and dry. To replenish while showering, we recommend Organic Body Scrubs jam packed with botanical oils and butters rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids for deeply moisturizing and skin refining. Formulated with anti-oxidant rich Sunflower oil and skin softening Shea Butter. Fine-grain mineral-rich Pacific Sea Salt is added to gently exfoliate dull, dry skin, encourage cell regeneration and promote smoother radiant looking velvety-soft skin. Skip the after-showering-lotion regime!

Moisturizing Helps Skin Stay Young

The skin on your face, ears, neck and chest are very sensitive to environmental changes and are the most frequent areas of the body known to develop skin issues. These areas of skin also shed cells more rapidly than other parts of the body and therefore need moisture to repair itself, which allows for younger skin cells to rise to the surface. This is where Neck and Décolleté ride to the rescue. Made with a slew of nourishing ingredients including camellia oil (used by geishas), shea butter, babassu oil, and jojoba oil — is light enough for day wear, but is especially soothing to slather on at night. These mega nourishing oils help with the appearance of deep wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin over time. The essential oils of Frankincense, Myrrh, Palmarosa and Neroli offer a powerful heavenly aroma. We like to use it as a before-bed moisturizer because it feels so awesome and good. Think of it as “shapewear for the neck”!

Tips for Moisturizing

Pat dry, don’t rub dry – After a shower gently pat your skin dry instead of rubbing your skin dry. By patting dry your skin will retain more moisture you are going to seal in when you moisturize.

Drink more water – the moisture your skin receives also comes from your body. Drink at least 8 cups of water every day!

Stick to organic products to help reduce oversaturated chemical exposure.

Use a humidifier – If needed, a humidifier can add much needed moisture to the air.

Give extra attention to your hands – hands show the effects of a dry environment more than any other part of the body. Apply nourishing organic moisturizers after hand washing.
