Herbal Beauty Tips for a Glowing Skin

by Faiz Ganafe Internet Marketer

Herbs are not just your grandmother's remedy for various diseases, but also essential ingredients for many skin and hair products.

The cosmetics industry has long recognized the beneficial effects and has used them to make lotions, creams, soaps and more.

Since the dawn of time, women, regardless of age, became obsessed with the idea of preserving the freshness and the appearance of a beautiful and healthy skin.

In addition to antibiotics, disinfectants, autovaccine and hormone-based medications, an impressive list of herbs come with detoxifying, antiallergic, diuretic, astringent and cicatrizing properties.

Growing on the edge of the most isolated paths, in forests and households, they are small and easy to overlook.

Many of these herbs and plants are full of curative powers that not only support health but also have the most incredible aesthetic effect.

Back when the cosmetic industry was not that influential and hi-tech, women used a whole arsenal of herbs, plants and spices in order to achieve that glowing and healthy-looking skin.

Treating Acne Naturally with Herbs

Acne causes physical discomfort, along with a major emotional and social impact on life, especially in the case of teenage girls and women.

However, this physical discomfort can also leave the nastiest and unwanted marks on our face, or even worse: permanent scars.

Permanent scars can be covered with makeup or treated with laser, but the more serious side-effect is the emotional damage, which most times leads to depression and self-isolation.

 

 

Applied as creams, masks and lotions, these herbs are ideal for any type of skin

For a beautiful, hydrated skin, without acne and stretch marks, we can use various herbs in order to help your body maintain its young look and suffer as less as possible during a pregnancy.

If you want a beautiful and clean complexion, then stop purchasing those expensive and delusional creams, masks and lotions filled with chemicals.

Their “miraculous effects” will not last and most times, as soon as you quit using that cream the skin becomes flaky.

Not all Herbs come with Health Benefits

We strongly advise you to do some research because not all herbs are good for your skin and health.

Some of them contain allergenic, toxic and even poisonous substances, especially if they are used incorrectly.

Avoid using plants that you’re not familiar with, just because they are “natural”, because the effects can be disastrous.

Here are the most used plants by the cosmetics industry:

Used together with essential rosemary oil and cedar wood, the mask will give your hair that glowing appearance, volume and vigor.

Due to it antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, doctors recommend lavender in terms of treating acne, sunburn, eczema and fungal infections of the skin.

Aloe
