Smooth, healthy, beautiful skin

For more than 50% of the year, we're constantly battling to keep our skin beautiful and moisturized. During the winter everything dries out, but in the summer the heat also poses a similar problem. So, how do you keep your skin really moisturized, but still healthy? I do few things to stay moisturized and healthy at the same time.

1. I try my utmost to use an organic product (not natural), organic. There really is a huge difference. Things like 100% cocoa butter, organic Shea butter, organic olive oil etc...

2. Mix my own products so I know there's nothing harmful in them... and this could be as quick or as lengthy of a process as you want it.

3. I moisturize as soon as I get out the shower before my skin get completely dry from exposure to the air. This helps to seal in the moisture remaining on your skin from your fresh shower.
