The beauty market is saturated with products claiming to work moisturizing miracles. Some work okay, others work better than ok. However while many department and drug store moisturizers do what they claim, they may contain toxic chemicals that, in the long run, are bad for you, your skin and the environment. Nature has provided us with plant oils and proteins that are proven to perform wonders, including these three natural moisturizers great for dry skin:
