With so many ingredients in cosmetics, the controversy continues over what's good and not good for your skin. Knowing the healthy ways you can treat your skin not only makes you feel better about what you're using, but also educates you on what's important and actually effective. Keep reading my glossary of natural ingredients that will have your skin hydrated and glowing while making you gorgeous from the inside out.

Panthenol

Panthenol is a provitamin of B5 and works by helping the body create more nutrients specifically for the hair and skin. When cells are nourished properly they stay healthier and regenerate much faster, in return making them much stronger in being able to withstand environmental hazards such as radiation from the sun or an excessively dry environment.

Panthenol acts as a humectant, which helps skin and hair products absorb and keep moisture.

You will find many shampoos and conditioners with this ingredient because of its ability to to take moisture from the air and bind it to hair follicles, which in return gives you shinier hair with more volume. When panthenol is used in skin creams and lotions, it helps them spread evenly over skin for total coverage.

Cupuacu Butter

Cupuacu butter is derived from the cupuacu fruit tree of the chocolate family (sounds great already) which is native to the northern Amazon. A soft and nourishing emollient, it easily absorbs water, which in return makes it an amazing moisturizer that helps improve the appearance of thinning and prematurely aging skin. With high levels of essential fatty acids, it helps improve skins elasticity. The creamy texture of cupuacu gives a softness and smoothness to skin helping it appear much more elastic.

Hellanthus Annuus Seed Oil

Hellanthus Annuus seed oil is a cold pressed oil extracted from sunflower seeds. Sunflower oil is high in essential fatty acids, and since it has a very light texture it can be used on every skin type. Sunflower oil is also an all natural and healthy way to heal skin while calming it at the same time. If you have redness, acne, inflammation, or eczema, this oil is a great way to soothe and calm irritated skin.

While most products contain oils such as almond and shea butter, sunflower oil contains an extremely high amount of vitamin E , which is crucial to the prevention of damage to sensitive skin cells by ultraviolet light, or UVA from the sun. In addition,  studies show that vitamin E helps prevent scarring, smooths the appearance of wrinkles and gives an overall smooth finish to the skin.
