It’s important to maintain a daily skin care regime if you want to have smooth and healthy skin. Whether you have dry, oily, sensitive or aging skin, there are a wide array of herbal products that can help restore and keep its vibrancy without using toxic chemicals.
These products are eco-friendly too, so you can pamper yourself while feeling good about not adding to the pollution of Planet Earth. When purchasing herbal products, be sure the plants are grown organically, without chemicals that might cause a reaction to your skin.
Facial skin is thin and more sensitive than the skin on other parts of your body, so be sure to choose herbal products for your face that are proven to be gentle. Cleansing, toning and moisturising are the three major components when caring for your face, so you’ll want to choose carefully.
Over the counter products such as body washes and bubble bath typically contain detergents that can irritate sensitive skin. Instead, choose organically grown, herbal lotions and cleansers that will keep your skin well lubricated, vibrant and free of skin problems such as acne.
Aging skin can benefit from natural products such as vitamins, minerals and essential oils that revive and regenerate the skin. Creams made from botanical oils and extracts will hydrate the skin, giving back the moisture that the natural affects of aging causes.
Natural, herbal products such as those made with balancing formulas of witch haze, mallow and botanical oils can also help to firm sagging skin and prevent the fine lines, scars and wrinkles acquired from pregnancies, weight loss or acne. These products specifically target problem areas — and if used regularly, can prevent and lessen skin problems.
Herbal products are designed not only to help and be kind to your skin, but also require no animal ingredients or testing. They don’t use detergents, synthetics or colours that might cause skin sensitivity and harm the eco-system.
Air pollution, bacteria and viruses can wreak havoc on your skin and play a huge role in your overall health. Combat these modern-day maladies by using herbal products that have been beneficial to humans since the beginning of time. They’re not magic potions and they can’t cure everything, but they deserve a place in your life.
