Many of us are creatures of habit and stick to a body lotion we trust; however, there are an equal number of individuals who choose to be loyal to no brand and try everything under the sun.
Many individuals are very concerned about ingredients added to moisturizers. Have you considered using olive oil as a moisturizer?
Olive oil is naturally loaded with lots of antioxidants (i.e. Vitamin E and Vitamin K) and lots of good fats. Due to the natural composition of olive oil, olive oil will work in conjunction with your skin to balance out your skin.
The only issue with olive oil (if applied to skin) is the odour. Some individuals love it but others won’t. Have you considered olive oil infused with other oils? During our recent trip to Greece, a salesperson lured me over and started to let me sample moisturizers which were olive oil based but infused with other oils. When I tried the olive oil infused with orange oil, I just couldn’t resist but to bring a bottle home. Because the moisturizer is quite rich, I tend to apply before I go to bed so that the oil can absorb while I sleep. I wake up feeling refreshed!! 🙂 I don’t mind the smell of orange as I go to bed as well. 🙂
Food For Thought: Have you tried any natural oils as a moisturizer for your skin? Would you consider? It doesn’t have to be olive oil, it could be coconut oil as well. 🙂 The smell of coconut oil would make me think that I am somewhere tropical and hot! 😉
