Question by Yuki: Herbal remedies for skin? Skin texture?
I’m interested in herbs, and I’ve read up on them a good deal. Recently, I’ve made an herbal toner using rosemary, elderflowers, nasturtium, lavender, and myrtle. It works, I think, but I’m not sure on one thing – I know that the point is to get soft skin, but is it supposed to be velvety-smooth or slippery-smooth? Also, are there any other herbs that might work well with oily skin? (My problem being that I inherited large pores from my parents, and while I do know that I can’t exactly “shrink” them, I’d like to try to make them less obvious without using too much makeup)

    Sounds interesting. The only thing I know to do for keeping oily skin and pores under control is a good quality facial soap or face scrub and terrycloth wash cloth. Probably not what you wanted to hear tho…

    I don’t know about applying herbs to your face, but taking burdock, dandelion root and hawthorn capsules will help purify your blood, and therefore your skin. I got rid of diabetic skin ulcers that I had had for 5 years (nothing worked) by taking burdock capsules.

    To soak up oil I like a clay mask with kaolin . Most supermarkets and health food stores have clay masks . The other thing I love is this bar

    It’s huge and I cut mine into quarters with a sharp kitchen knife. I got mine in december and have a half a bar left . It tones down my oil and pores. I aim for silky smooth and glowing and this bar gives it to me . I pair it with pure sqauline for moisture. It doesn’t clog my pores or leave me greasy
    These are ingriedients that are good for making your own masks . Happy mixing and may your skin be radient
