5 All-natural age-fighters for younger skin
There might be a wide variety of anti-aging creams lining store shelves, but some of the best fine line fighters can actually be found in nature. If you're looking for a more natural way to keep your complexion line-free and looking youthful, search out natural beauty products containing the following skin-saving ingredients.
For extremely dry or dehydrated skin give argan oil a try. This ultra-moisturizing ingredient is cold-pressed from the kernels of the Moroccan argan tree. The oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, carotenes and vitamin E, making it an ideal ingredient to heal, nourish and moisturize skin as it ages. Argan oil also helps to balance skin tone and texture and absorbs easily into the skin (no greasy feel here) giving it a dewy, youthful glow.
Known as the "village pharmacy" in the Ayurvedi tradition, some form of neem is used in almost 75 percent of Ayurvedic remedies. You can also find it on store shelves in everything from toothpaste to body lotion. This multitasking ingredient is a source of nourishing omega fats and is packed with antioxidants, all of which help keep skin healthy and younger-looking. Rough or sensitive skin and skin prone to redness also benefit from neem because it helps to even skin tone and texture.
Sea buckthorn berry
This beauty-enhancing berry is rich in vitamin E, carotenoids, phytosterols and essential fatty acids, making it a powerful ally in the fight against fine lines. It's also an ideal ingredient for cellular rejuvenation and protection from the signs of aging. Sea buckthorn berry is helpful for anyone with dehydrated, depleted and mature skin and has also been used to promote healing from sunburn, eczema and other skin wounds.
Organic expeller expressed coconut oil
Not just for cooking, coconut oil is an effective natural solution for dry, dehydrated, rough or broken skin. Antibacterial, anti-microbial organic coconut oil is emollient and occlusive (air and water tight), making it a great way to bind moisture to the skin before heading outside in the winter. It's also a great body moisturizer to use from head to toe. Seriously, you can use it straight from the jar.
A popular ingredient in many skin care products, this emollient oil is similar in structure to the oil naturally produced by the skin, making it a gentle moisturizing choice for all skin types. Jojoba oil provides a light, nourishing touch for even oily skin (it's non-comedogenic, meaning it won't clog pores) and despite the fact it's found in many skin, hair and body care beauty products, you can also use this oil straight from the bottle.
