What do you need to look for in a good moisturizer? First and foremost, a great moisturizer should mimic and synergize with your skin’s natural process and should mimic the sebum and waxes that are naturally produced in your skin. So when looking for skin moisturizers, firstly look for products that DO NOT contain water.  Let me repeat that again, look for moisturizer that DOES NOT contain water.  This may seem counter intuitive. But especially for your face, which needs to be handled gently, a moisturizer that DOES NOT contain water will often outperform a product that does contain water, simply due to the 4 ingredients mentioned previously as you are effectively avoiding those humectants and emulsifiers. Secondly look for products that are relatively pure, that use pure ingredients that do not over-complicate the formula, and that avoid those humectants, emulsifiers and emollients. Focus on a moisturizer that is in it of itself functional. You will find these products generally in a liquid or a paste form. The NuVsio Mineral Enriched Balm Concentrate off of our website www.nuvsio.com is composed of natural organic oil and essential oil blends which optimize that moisturizing effect, combining synergistically with the natural skin oils and moisturizers.  This has been my philosophy at NuVsio and this is why I started this company. The Art of skincare is the art of keeping the products simple to use while applying a state of the art scientific approach, utilizing nature to produce products that truly offer a revolutionary efficacy to skin care. Lastly, the moisturizing component cannot come exclusively from the moisturizers but from your skin as well.  The skin moisturizes itself from the inside out, hence these type of oil sealers such as our NuVsio Mineral Enriched Balm Concentrate act to seal in that moisture.  These are more protectants and skin sealers, than what the industry today coins as moisturizers. But with the use of any skin regimen, it is important to help and   stimulate the natural exfoliation of the skin. To help with exfoliation, at NuVsio we utilize an ultra-pure concentrated product called the Purifying Mineral Mask which has a microdermabrasion potential without any grittiness.  Our micro exfoliant feels very smooth to the touch, with no grit feel, this is important.  If you look under a high power microscope at a gritty feeling exfoliant, the grit in the product is large.  In fact if your skin cell

This week I had an opportunity to contribute to a wonderful podcast at Skin Care Talk Radio, and ask can you over moisturize the skin? To answer this question I had to explain the science of ingredients on the skin using my experience as a scientific researcher and the founder of NuVsio, a purity skincare focused company founded in 2011. Our main goal at NuVsio is to uniquely combine the purity of nature through a targeted scientific approach that ultimately produces exquisite mineral-based all-natural products with remarkable benefits. Following my passion for skin treatments and skin care started through my acne ravaged youth.  I have suffered with severe acne for years. I have also done some modeling in my youth, and the heavy makeup that is applied is almost like wearing a saran wrap on your face. It can ravage anyone’s skin, especially someone who has sensitive acne prone skin. So here I am some 15 years later and I am trying to revolutionize the skincare industry.  Today I would like to discuss with you something one of my colleagues brought up. Is it possible to over-moisturize our skin? Our skin is a living and breathing organ. On average our skin covers 3000 square inches, it is by far the largest organ in the human body. It is burdened with a difficult task of keeping the outside out and to do that our skin relies on three main layers. All the skin layers play important roles in your body, but it’s the top layer that we touch and feel, called the epidermis. This layer consists of dead skin cells which act as our protective shield, they are our armor. And this armor, it needs moisture and is entrusted with the act of keeping the dry outer areas from dehydrating you. But how do they do that? They do that by essentially having a layer of water-resistant wax and oil that covers your skin, which is your natural sebum. And one of my colleagues in the scientific field inquired if it’s possible to over moisturize. A funny side story, this colleague has an aunt that they call Aunt Shiny. Maybe all of us know someone that always seems to be moisturizing the skin with a greasy-looking, glistening effect on the face. Is this good or bad? Well when we look at the scientific empirical data on this, it shows
