natural face moisturizers (with SPF)

as we all know, keeping your skin moisturized is of top-notch priority, but slathering it with chemicals to do so is not.

i’ve come up with this small list to help you keep your facial skin in tip-top shape, and also to help protect it from over-exposure to the sun. all of these ingredients can be used in more than one way (woohoo!), so please don’t feel like you’re shelling out money for only one thing.

natural facial moisturizers (with spf)

these are non-comedogenic oils. you can use them as a base before you put on makeup, or mix them with up to 10% zinc oxide for better broad spectrum protection, and to make it more of a liquidy cream than straight oil. you can also add green tea extract to provide some antioxidant action. just remember that a little goes a long way with these oils! & if they’re an essential oil, they will need to be diluted with a carrier oil!

where to buy these oils: any health food store, organic store, or online. shop around and make sure they’re 100% natural!

& if you’re looking to buy a premade natural moisturizer with spf, HERE are the EWG’s top safe and non-comedogenic choices.

i also like these:

of course, the best option for your wallet would be to buy the organic oil(s) and mix some zinc oxide in it if you need the extra protection. pre-made organic facial moisturizers with spf are PRICEY, and sometimes aren’t 100% natural or organic.

what have natural alternatives have you used to keep your face moisturized and protected?

  1. How should I use the oils as spf? Do they need to be mixed with other oils? And if they do could they be mixed with coconut oil or olive oil?
