"What is the Best Face Moisturizer for Non-Greasy Hydration?"

Let me tell you a quick story. Up until about a year ago, my face washing routine consisted of a "healthy" scrubbing, patting dry and then an urgent dash to apply a face moisturizer to relieve my uncomfortably-dry, skin-shrinking feeling. But now I had a heavy, greasy film on my faced that I had to rub and rub into my skin until it was absorbed. Sound familiar?

So, I set out on a quest to find the best face moisturizer for healthy, non-greasy hydration and, in the process, learned something that I was not expecting. Oil-free skin care products are not the answer. Let me explain.

Your skin produces its own oils in order to keep it soft and supple. Most soaps and cleansers strip out these natural oils.

So instead of replacing them with products that contain synthetic substances like mineral oil or glycerine, you need oils that are molecularly compatible with your skin. In other words, substances that are derived from nature. It makes sense when you think about it, right?

Nature-based oils are more readily absorbed into the deepest layers of your skin. They enter your skin cells to provide soothing treatment and repair so that your natural oil balance can be restored.

Your skin cannot absorb synthetic oils. Their molecular makeup is such that they can only clog your pores like sludge in a drain. If your pores are clogged your skin can't "breathe" or eliminate toxins as it was designed to do. The result is an increase in flare-ups and breakouts.

You might be wondering why cosmetic companies continue to use synthetic oils that have been show to be unhealthy for your skin. Well the answer is because they are cheap! Using ingredients that have to be researched, developed and tested cuts into their bottom line.

Fortunately, newer cosmetic companies are taking skin care very seriously. They understand that effective skincare products must support the body's natural ability to heal itself.

This approach to product development is a dramatic turn away from the ineffective methods that have been used for over the last 50 years.

If you want to find a face moisturizer that will soothe and nourish your skin with non-greasy hydration just look for ingredients like Babassu and Grapeseed Oil.

Babassu is a light, natural wax extracted from the fruit of the Babassu palm. This healthy oil helps retain moisture by creating an invisible barrier that also keeps out dirt and grime. Grapeseed Oil is great for treating the skin around the delicate eye area. It has powerful antioxidant properties and is rich in essential oils.

During my quest to find the best face moisturizer, I discovered many more healthy, nature-based oils that are being used to support healthy skin, fight aging, and dramatically improve your appearance.
