For all of us who like keeping our skin healthy and beautiful using herbal skin care remedies, then the choice is so wide as to leave one confused. For those who live in the countryside, there are many readily available herbs and one can easily make their own herbal skin care remedies by collecting and preparing these herbs in various ways.

For those who live in towns and cities or do not want to be bothered with the collection and formulation of their own herbal cures, there are readily available formulations which can be purchased from herbal treatment companies and get the same benefits of using natural cures for treating or conditioning their skin.

If you favour buying ready made skin herbal remedies, you first need to understand the exact herb that should be part of the ingredients that make up the remedy,how it works and its benefits before you buy a particular product. This way, you are sure that you are using a preferred herb just like if you collected and prepared it your self.

If you prefer to make your own herbal skin cures, start by understanding and being able to identify the plants that are suitable for use for your indented purpose. Then learn how they are supposed to be prepared and applied or used. This is important because although herbal medicine is rarely harmful, some plants are poisonous when used in the wrong way or when the wrong part is used.

There are many plants that can be used in herbal medicine for the skin. The most common that you will find as ingredients of ready made herbal skin care solutions are such as:
