I'm just wondering which gluten-free moisturizers everyone uses on their face. The skin on my face is way too dry. I live in Northern Alberta where the temperature can get below -30!

I use Dove moisturiser with spf. I am in Colorado and it is really dry here as well. I would say it does a fair job, not great. But I know it is safe. I sometimes will put it on twice before putting on make-up.

Thanks... Dove is safe, good to know. I'll look for Dove moisturizer when I go shopping.

My skin has been flaking in these dry and cold temperatures. George's Special Dry Hand Cream is good at night especially for hands and feet. But it's a little too thick for the face.

Carrie,
Go to Essential Day Spa dot com ( In Van, I think)...they have everything under the sun, but I liked the Decleor line Climatique when I lived in Wyoming...meant for sub zero temps and all botanical based...

Most regular moisturizers seem to irritate my skin (it's pretty sensitive). I use straight Jojoba oil on my skin... it's non-comedegenic, and works really well for dry skin.

Though I don't need a skin moisturizer, I do know that coconut oil makes about the best moisturizer I've ever come across. You can put it to the test without buying a whole jar though. CoconutOil-Online offers a sample that would certainly last plenty long enough to see how well it does. It only takes a drop or two. Not only does it moisturize, but it actually nourishes the skin and aids in healing, etc. It's the finest grade I'm aware of (meant for cooking and baking), but I suppose for the skin you could use one of the cheaper brands after the sample is used up. Many people report healthier skin just having the oil in their diet.

I also use straight Jojoba at night....skin is much softer the next day. but, I am using a retinol cream also, so at times my face is like an alligator, adn I MUST use a strong sunscreen every day. I LOVE Neutrogena Ultra Sheer dry-touch sunblock, I had researched it before buying, and it turns out it is the same one my new dermatologist recommends also.

I bought a Dove product, not sure if it is meant for the face, but it seems to work! Thanks for your suggestions.

I have another question... What brand of lip gloss do you use because mine obviously doesn't work very well. I find that my lips are almost always peeling and/or dry. My lip gloss leaves chunks of gloss all over my lips and I think it's mixed in with peeling skin. I'm sure it looks wonderful.

Thanks Tiffany! I'll look for those products. Can you find them in pharmacies or do you have to go to elsewhere.

depends on the pharmacy, it seems. I thought I had to get them at whole foods until I moved to seattle, and found that the bartell's across the street carried them. :o

Badger Balm is another great product for lips

www.badgerbalm.com

I find coconut oil is great as a moisterizer (and lip balm) as well.
