This might sound stupid.... but seriously. What can I use that is as close to being natural as possible and GOOD for skin to mousterize with? I have always used run of the mill lotions like those perfumy types. The ones that to me just do not seem...natural... or normal. I get acne sometimes so I try not to use it in fears its just clogging pores and making my skin worse but I have really dry skin.

I also cannot stand petroleum based things as it is so greasy. And coconut oil!!!! So greasy I hate it.

So what options are there out there?


Non greasy and natural lotions..

Coconut oil, or a butter, such as mango or shea or avocado or aloe or raspberry.

Coconut oil is SOOOOOOOOOO greasy. I use it on my son for his excema. I could never use it on myself. I apply it to hima nd my hands are slippery all day long. I hate that stuff.

Quoting corticosteroid:
