Regardless of the season, these organic body butters, lip balms and carrier oils are naturally hydrating, with numerous anti-aging benefits. These products (available at Sky Organics) can also be incorporated into almost any daily beauty routine to encourage softer, healthier and smoother looking skin.
1 - Organic Shea Butter
Naturally rich in vitamins A & E, Shea Butter is perfect for toning and moisturizing your skin. It also enhances collagen production, which helps to fight aging signs and prevent dryness. Use it regularly to help avert acne and reduce skin inflammations. Packed with nutrients, vitamins and fatty acids, Shea Butter is ideal during a dry winter day or an after-sun skin repair. It naturally contains SPF 6 to help protect your skin from UV rays. ($9.99; Sky Organics)
2 - Organic Mango Butter
Luscious and sweet Mango Butter can deeply moisturize your face and body. Slightly softer and less oily than Shea and Cocoa Butter, it is rich in fatty acids, making it ideal for slowing down and reversing aging signs, relieving sunburns and improving skin elasticity. With a wealth of detoxifying agents, Mango Butter is sensational at removing foreign agents embedded in your skin. Because it is odorless, it is ideal to mix with essential oils for increased benefits. Use it on your scalp, hair and body. ($17.95; Sky Organics)
3 - Organic Jojoba Oil
The wax-like texture of this cold-pressed unrefined Jojoba Oil is perfect for oily or dry skin. It tricks the body, so that it doesn’t produce natural oils, yet it locks in the moisture for extended periods, making it a great ally during dry and cold weather. This also allows you to feel hydrated but not sticky. Use it to deep clean your face and prevent acne or as oil on your hands and feet for a relaxing Mani Pedi. ($13.95; Sky Organics)
Benefits of Eucalyptus-
Eucalyptus leaf extract can also hydrate your skin by increasing the production of ceramides, which are lipids that help skin to retain moisture. Ceramides also act as a barrier to protect skin against harmful irritants that can cause dryness and inflammation. Eucalyptus oil is rich in antioxidants and highly concentrated, so when applying it to your skin be sure to dilute it with a carrier oil, such as jojoba or avocado oil.
4 - Avocado Oil
100% natural Avocado Oil is both healthy and satiating. Full of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Avocado Oil strengthens the digestive tract, softens the hair, and regenerates the skin. It is extremely versatile, and can be used as a cooking oil, a massage oil, or a moisturizer when applied to the skin. Since Avocado Oil is anti-inflammatory in nature, it boosts the immune system and will reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease. ($11.95; Sky Organics)
5 - Organic Lip Balms
You probably don't want chemicals in your food and water, so why put it on your lips? These all-natural Sky Organics Lip Balms are safe for the entire family and are made from the best stuff nature can provide! Pure and Chemical Free, the way nature intended. This pout-prettifier is great to throw in your purse for on-the-go, kissably supple lips, and to keep on your nightstand as a before-bed nourisher. ($7.95; Sky Organics)
