If You Hate Sticky Lotions, These Natural Alternatives Are For You

It’s a no-brainer, really. I simply don’t like applying face and body lotions because of the sticky feeling they leave. However, I do know how important it is to moisturize the skin so I’ve turned to natural alternatives that it easily absorbs instead. The best part is that you get the same benefits — healthy, young-looking, and buttery skin — from nature itself at a low cost!

If you also hate the lasting sticky effect of lotions, try these out instead:

SHEA BUTTER. Extracted from the nut of the karite nut tree (commonly known as shea tree), this natural fat is full of antioxidants and fatty acids that include vitamins A, E, F, and K. Shea butter promotes cell regeneration, helping heal wounds and encourage younger-looking skin.

 

COCOA BUTTER. It is a highly moisturizing butter that comes from the fat in cocoa beans. Cocoa butter also helps fade scars. It is safe for people with highly sensitive skin and it’s absorbed quickly, leaving it soft and smelling good. 

 

ALOE VERA GEL. This famous plant has natural properties that soothe skin, heal blemished or irritated areas, and reduce stretch marks and wrinkles. It also helps decrease pigmentation, brighten up the skin, improve the hair, and fight aging.

 

ALMOND OIL. Nourish your skin with almond oil’s vitamins A, D, and E. Just a few drops under the eyes can already ease puffiness! It gives you deeper moisture than coconut oil as it penetrates multiple layers of your skin, possibly making it a better choice for people with dry skin.

 

COCONUT OIL. This cheap yet effective alternative is popular for a reason. Coconut oil contains antioxidants and vitamins that keep skin moisturized and smooth. Its fatty acids help reduce signs of aging as well as other skin problems such as stretch marks, scars, cellulite, or even diaper rash.

 

OLIVE OIL. It contains vitamin E that moisturizes the skin and promotes collagen production that keeps it looking young and lightens scars. Olive oil can even be used to replace your shaving cream, allowing for smoother and nourishing hair removal routine.
