Over the past few years, the area around my eyes get super dry, flaky and itching, causing some sort of inflammation on my face. Typically, this occurs when the climate changes dramatically or when the weather is being bi-polar like it is now. After doing my research, the only solution to fix this facial problem is to moisturize, moisturize and moisturize! Because I am sensitive to certain products, I’ve been seeking more organic solutions. Find out what I’ve been using below:
- Virgin, Unrefined Coconut Oil – Not only does it act as a moisturizer, but it can also be used as a make-up remover. The bottle below comes in solid form, so the coconut oil needs to be melted. Once it’s in liquid form, take a cotton-round, get a dime-sized amount to remove the make-up on your face. To use the coconut oil as a moisturizer, take a dime-sized amount onto the palms of your hands, and rub it on your face and neck. To get the full effect, people tend to leave it on over night. You can find these products at Target and Trader Joe’s.
- The Revitalizer by Biossance – Acts a moisturizer for your face, body and hair, keeping you hydrated from head to toe. After a good cleanse, take three drops onto the palms of your hand, and rub it onto the desired area. I use this product on my face every morning before I work on my make-up and every night before I go to bed. The Revitalizer is 100% made from natural oils, specially from a plant-derived squalane. You can find a bottle here!
- Fu Yu Run’s Ginseng and Pearl Gel – Was obtained over seas, where my family have asked me to be the guinea pig for this product. There’s the Natural Silver that is used for the evening, and a Natural Gold that is used in the morning. The Natural Silver diminishes inflammation and exclude toxins while the Natural Gold activates your weak and aging cells, prevents skin senility, exclude melanin, retrain facial freckles and skin wrinkles. Both products have key ingredients that include the pearl powder and ginseng extract.
