Celebrating Skincare Ingredients on National Love Your Skin Day

July 8th is National Love Your Skin Day, a day dedicated to taking care of your largest organ. Three major facets of skincare embrace cleansing, moisturization, and protection from the sun. In honor of National Love Your Skin Day, Jedwards is highlighting a handful of our top skincare ingredients!

First focus is on setting up a facial skincare routine as a necessity! Using oils on the face helps lock in moisture and assists with various skin concerns. Though the spectrum of plant-based oils is broad, it’s best to use lightweight oils on the face to avoid clogged pores—especially for skin types more prone to acne. A few highly praised non-greasy oils utilized in serums, oil-based cleansers, and moisturizers are marula oil, jojoba oil, and rosehip oil.

One of our most popular plant oils for all-over skincare is Coconut oil. As a heavier oil, its best to avoid using it on the face too often and us this tropical ingredient as the base in body lotions and moisturizers to rehydrate the body. 

Products such as body butters offer deeper moisturization over other lotions and conditioners. Rich and thick in texture, body butters are primarily composed of plant-based butters, namely Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter. Alone or combined with oils and other additives, plant butters are a superior option for dry skin.

Moisturization is vital with protection being imperative to overall skin health. Zinc Oxide, a UVA and UVB absorber, is a key ingredient in many mineral sunscreens. Sunscreen, along with adequate protection from clothing and limiting your time in peak UV hours, reduces damage from the sun. Many sunscreens are made with plant-based oils to offer additional skin hydration properties in addition to shielding from external harmful factors.
