Skin Nutrients

Lather on those EFA's -- essential fatty acids, and they'll help keep your skin radiant and silky smooth. Seattle-based Spirit of Beauty combines vitamins, organic botanicals and essential oils for "treating the skin naturally." When I first heard the name, I imagined the packaging to be white and sky blue. Much to my surprise, it's black and gold! But I digress...back to those EFA's in their Intensive Healthy Aging Complex -- filled with blackberry seed oil, grapeseed oil, rose hip oil, cranberry oil and more.

No matter what brand you choose, try to look for lotions with healthy fats -- like coconut or avocado. These EFA's work by healing problems from within, rather than masking skin problems, like synthetic ingredients tend to do.

For sensitive skin types, Logona Free Body Lotion is great. It's a scent-free moisturizer that contains great essential fats for real softening. Now we know why these fats are essential. Feed your skin, inside and out, to look good and feel great.
