The largest organ in the human body is the one you see most easily: the skin. It has very specific functions like maintaining body temperature and protecting other organs from bacteria. It accounts for up to 10% of our body weight, edging out the liver as our second largest organ. Did you also know anything you put on your skin can be absorbed straight into your bloodstream? The same way a nicotine patch works. This includes parabens (chemical preservatives) and other dangerous chemicals in skin products.

So while many of you have taken the clean eating movement seriously, which is a great start, many are forgetting about the products they lather their body with on a daily basis.

Unfortunately, too many of these products contain large amounts of toxic chemicals and preservatives that seep straight into the bloodstream and travel throughout our bodies, wreaking havoc by causing inflammation, hormone imbalances, irregular periods, infertility, allergies even cancer.

Also known as endocrine disruptors, some of these chemicals’ molecular structures resemble natural estrogen so closely that they fit into the same receptors in the body. They either bind to these receptors — so your own hormones don’t work like they’re supposed to — and turn genes on and off, amplify the negative aspects of estrogen, or travel to the cells’ nucleus, where they exert a negative effect on chromosomes or DNA.

But it doesn’t have to be that way with organic natural skin care, including an edible unisex lotion for your face and body. Aging is an indication of the time moving forward and while we cannot stop time, we can slow it down and help reduce the signs of ageing through our skin.  This lotion is easy to make and will soothe the skin while offering a healthy glow soon after the first application.

There are three main base ingredients for any organic natural skin moisturisers which include: shea butter, coconut oil and castor oil.

Shea Butter: Full of all-natural vitamin A, 100 percent pure, unrefined, raw shea butter can improve numerous skin conditions such as blemishes and wrinkles, stretch mark prevention during pregnancy, muscle fatigue, dermatitis, hydration and radiation treatments for certain medical problems.

**Nut Allergy: While people with tree nut allergies can possibly have an allergic reaction to shea butter, none have ever been reported. Shea butter is generally considered a safe and effective moisturizer with many other benefits, such as fighting skin inflammation and the appearance of aging.

Coconut Oil: natural saturated fats help the skin stay moisturized, with the fat preventing moisture loss through the skin’s pores. These fats give the skin a healthy, smooth and even tone.

One of the most versatile skin (and food) ingredients there is, coconut oil’s skin benefits include: strengthening underlying epidermal tissue, removing dead skin cells, protecting us from sunburns, and containing antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antioxidant properties. Research even shows that coconut oil is strong enough to fight chronic skin diseases characterized by defects in the epidermal barrier function and cutaneous inflammation, including atopic dermatitis (AD).

Castor Oil: used to cleanse skin, castor oil is actually a “drying oil,” even though that might seem counterintuitive and is also classed as a carrier oil. It’s used for both facial and body cleansing to carry away impurities. For centuries, at the first sign of illness, many parents and grandparents would immediately turn to giving their children castor oil either topically or internally to naturally boost immune function and speed up healing. Castor oil contains many beneficial components, including fatty acids, flavonoids, phenolic compounds, amino acids, terpenoids and phytosterols. 

Dragons Blood: did you know that dragon’s blood skin care is actually a thing? It’s true! Many beauty lines (both natural and conventional) have already been including dragon’s blood in their formulations for its anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, protective and rejuvenating effects. Dragon’s blood seems to be an especially popular choice for skin that been compromised by sun exposure, too much exfoliation, or just generally, skin that needs to have inflammation calmed down

Frankincense: benefits include the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone, elasticity, defense mechanisms against bacteria or blemishes, and appearance as someone ages. It may help tone and lift skin, reduce the appearance of scars and acne, and heals wounds. It may also be beneficial for fading of stretch marks, surgery scars or marks associated with pregnancy, and for healing dry or cracked skin.

According to a review published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, frankincense oil reduces redness and skin irritation, while also producing a more even skin tone. Studies suggest that it’s the pentacyclic triterpene (steroid-like) structure of frankincense oil that contributes to its soothing effect on irritated skin.

Kaolin Clay: when combined with water and left to dry on the skin as a clay mask, the clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores to extract these from the pores. This helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes, alleviate redness, and also to fight allergic reactions from irritating lotions or face washes, and even helps heal poison ivy.

Thanks to the clay’s special ability to act as an antibiotic treatment when applied topically to the skin, the clay can help to calm skin infections, like contact dermatitis, and speed up healing time of wounds, even when prescription antibiotics were not able to help solve the problem.

Topical application of bentonite clay has even been shown to heal Buruli ulcer, which is a “flesh-eating” infection resulting from Mycobacterium ulcerans bacteria generally seen in third-world countries.

Some people have reported using clay as a soaking liquid to remove toxins on the skin.

Magnesium: ever wonder, “What does magnesium do?” An abundant element on our planet, magnesium is also present in every organ in the human body. In fact, it’s considered a vital mineral for over 300 biochemical reactions that regulate our health and wellness. Unfortunately, many of us simply don’t get enough magnesium in our bodies to the point that we unknowingly suffer from a magnesium deficiency.

In studies regarding magnesium uses, magnesium is shown to break apart different fats and oils. Therefore, is can aid in reducing skin oiliness. Magnesium benefits also include its stress-relieving abilities. This can help reduce stress-related skin irritations, such as acne and rosacea.

Black Seed Oil: in a study conducted by Iranian researchers, Nigella saliva was found as effective as the skin cream Betamethasone in improving quality of life and decreasing severity of hand eczema. Black seed oil does not come with a laundry list of terrifying side effects like conventional creams including Betamethasone.

Betamethasone, for example, (used for Psoraisis) may cause swelling in your face or hands, swelling or tingling in your mouth or throat, chest tightness, trouble breathing, skin colour changes, dark freckles, easy bruising, muscle weakness, and severe attention. Weight gain around your neck, upper back, breast, face or waist is also in the realm of possibility.

I don’t know about you, but I would much rather use something natural on my skin like black seed oil.

Fossil Shell Flour (Food Grade): also known as diatomaceous earth and diatomite — works like a natural detoxifying agent within the body, killing parasites and viruses that can contribute to illnesses while also helping to clean the blood. It also helps eliminate heavy metals from the body, such as aluminum, making it perfect for a heavy metal detox.

Shea Butter: Full of all-natural vitamin A, 100 percent pure, unrefined, raw shea butter can improve numerous skin conditions such as blemishes and wrinkles, stretch mark prevention during pregnancy, muscle fatigue, dermatitis, hydration and radiation treatments for certain medical problems.

**Nut Allergy: While people with tree nut allergies can possibly have an allergic reaction to shea butter, none have ever been reported. Shea butter is generally considered a safe and effective moisturizer with many other benefits, such as fighting skin inflammation and the appearance of aging.

Apply directly to face and body as required.

Should you have an allergic reaction, please seek medical advice.

A lot of the ingredients used for cleaning industrial equipment are the same ingredients used in most skin care products. This should be enough information to help you choose a natural approach to cosmetics! In the U.S. (for example), the cosmetics industry is allowed to put thousands of synthetic chemicals into personal care products, regardless of their link to cancer, infertility or birth defects.

There are some simple things you can do to make winter more comfortable for your skin:

  • Avoid frequent showers and baths that are too hot. The hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils, causing it to feel dry and itchy.
  • Avoid chemical-laden soaps, such as those containing perfumes, alcohol and synthetics. These can cause lots of irritation by drying out the skin.
  • Try moisturizing your skin as soon as you step out of the shower or bath. Simply pat yourself dry with a towel, and while the skin is still damp, apply a great natural moisturizer like the one below. Then, let it air dry.
