Every cosmetics store has hundreds of moisturizing products, most of which claim to be ‘natural’. Many of these are filled with preservatives and other harmful chemicals, which help make the product look and smell appealing, but definitely aren’t ‘natural’. After extensive research, here are the six natural moisturizers that will leave your hair, skin and nails feeling hydrated.
1. Olive oil
Everybody has a bottle of olive oil in a cupboard somewhere, although not everyone realizes that it’s such an effective natural moisturizer. You don’t need to use much – just a few drops – but when gently applied to your cleansed face, will leave your skin feeling beautifully soft and supple.
Many women also swear by using the oil instead of shaving cream, when liberally applied to already wet legs. This offers lubrication to ensure you don’t cut yourself, but also helps to soothe and moisturize. Olive oil certainly offers enough benefits to be worth a quick hunt around the kitchen cupboards!
