Coconut oil, Beeswax, Avocado oil, vanilla beans
It’s no secret how beneficial coconut oil is for our skin. It’s hydrating, has a natural SPF of 15, and anti-microbial properties. Combine it with the nourishing and sealing qualities of raw beeswax and you have a perfect powerhouse of a moisturizer. Avocado oil is rich in vitamins and helps keep the product spreadable in cooler temperatures. Finally, real food-grade vanilla beans give up their fragrance naturally as your skin warms them, creating a lasting yet mild aroma.
Use: If you are used to commercial moisturizers then read this carefully. Dahlia Bee lotions are powerful and effective, meaning that very little goes a VERY long way. It is best to start with a very small amount and add more as needed. If there is a lot of grease left behind then you have used too much. You can wipe excess off with a paper towel, or simply spread the excess around other parts of your body until a comfortable level has been reached. Below are some “serving” suggestions:
- Hands: A dollop the size of a green pea. Usually no more than a chic pea size is needed for even the driest of hands.
- Face: Half a green pea to start, or dip a clean finger tip in. There will be a little bit of trial and error, since everyone’s skin is different. It’s best to start EXTREMELY SPARINGLY on the face. Most skin types, even “oily” ones, benefit from this moisturizer.
- Body: Think of your body in sections; each leg, each arm, torso. Start with roughly a quarter sized dollup per section and work up from there.
Remember, you can always add more moisturizer, but it is not so easy to get excess off without wasting it. Many individuals have found that they need to use less and less over time, as their skin starts to protect itself and maintain its elasticity.
