Natural moisturizers

Besides homemade moisturizers there are a few affordable and natural moisturizers we recommend highly. They're not only cheaper they're also more natural and work much better than most commercial moisturizers out there. You could use:

  • Bag Balm
  • Barnyard beauty aids
  • Vaseline (petroleum jelly)...and no it doesn't clog pores
  • Corn Huskers Lotion
  • Udder Cream

They come also highly recommended by specialists and almost everybody who ever was in serious need to moisturize their dry skin. Don't worry about clogged pores etc…that's a fable to make you buy the more expensive designer moisturizers

Indulge me and let me show off just this once...: petroleum jelly is officially classified as non-comedogenic, meaning it won't clog pores! Thank you, case closed

Nothing moisturizes better than these natural moisturizers above

Words of caution about ingredients

Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
