    anything without petroleum byproducts, mineral oil, PUFA oils, phlatates, etc;

    most contain ingredients harmful to your endocrine, so it's best to minimize and just use natural food based products.

    For years I have washed with either honey or nothing but a facecloth. I used coconut oil on my face to moisturize, but I am horrible at moisturizing constantly, it's usually as I'm getting out of the shower.
    Goals:

    Lose weight/fat!
    Get fit!
    Regain my health and energy!
    Run a marathon! (again)

    Most of what you use on your skin is not absorbed by it, skin care remains on the surface of your skin, and chemicals aren't bad. That said, if you want natural products, I'd go with aloe Vera gel in summer and a heavier duty oil in winter, like jojoba and argan for the face and coconut or sesame for the body. I've tried sweet almond and olive oil and they're both way too sticky.

    I wash my face with baking soda 2-3 times a week and moisturize my face with CO daily.

    Extra virgin olive oil... warm a few drops between your hands vigorously first and only use enough so that your face doesn't feel tight. If you use it straight out of the shower, it absorbs into your pores better. Feels and smells so nice. I use it before bed and then do witch hazel in the morning to remove excess oil and impurities. Cheap, easy, luxurious.

    I'm another in favor of coconut oil and baking soda. I use them together a couple times a week, and coconut oil alone to moisturize occasionally (be VERY sparing, a little goes a long long long way, something I learned the hard way.)

    Also works great on body and hair. =)

    I hear honey makes a good base for masks and blackhead suckeroutters, haven'tr tried it yet, but since I began the baking soda routine the blackheads in my nose (my last stubborn bad skin item since starting primal) are clearing up nicely.

    Coconut oil and/or shea butter. I use shea butter for deeper and longer moisturizing but it's kinda heavy to use on the face.
