What Do You Know Wednesday – Natural Skin Care

We are on spring break this week, and enjoying a wonderful staycation.  We are trying strike that delicate balance between fun and relaxation. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for writing, so, I’ll be keeping this short. Do you have any home remedies or tips for taking care of your skin naturally? Full disclosure: I’m hoping to add some information to a blog post I’m working on for later.

Here’s my tip:I am done with purchasing high dollar creams, lotions, and treatments.  I use coconut oil as my facial moisturizer – morning and night. If feels oily when it first goes on, but it soaks in quickly and leaves skin soft and smooth. Really. My skin feels fabulous.  I also use it as a cheekbone highlighter (to replace the expensive one I used to buy at Sephora).

I’m not saying I have the skin of a 25 year old.  Coconut oil is not a miracle cream – I don’t really think a miracle cream exists.  I do think that protecting my skin from too much sun, eating right, getting enough sleep, and using a healthy, natural moisturizer is the key to aging gracefully.  The other key is realizing that nothing is going to give me the skin of a 25 year old and being okay with that too.

So, do you have any tips for natural skin care?  Please share.  Post your idea or link in the comments section below.  We’d love to hear from you.
