The Hidden Truth About Medicinal Herbs For Skin Care

Article by William Colbert

Did you know that by simply mixing some milk with a few drops of lemon juice, you can use it for bleaching your skin? All you have to do is apply it directly and leave for about twenty minutes and then wash it off. This is just one of the many home remedies using medicinal herbs for skin care.

I bet you did not know that many types of seaweed are used in herbal skin care products too. Seaweed goes by various names. The most popular one from Ireland, where I come from, is called carrageen moss. There are others from Japan, known as kelp or sometimes called dulse as well.

Why is seaweed so important for treating the largest organ of our bodies? First, it is really a great agent for getting rid of toxins. Secondly, it is so rich in vitamins and minerals that it is can be a great source of nourishment.

The Japanese seaweed or kelp (Wakame) can counteract the negative effects of an enzyme called hyaluronidase which harms the hylauronic acid. That acid is actually essential to collagen and elastin doing their job of maintaining the suppleness and firmness of the epidermis.

Other medicinal herbs for skin range from rose petals which can be a great agent for rejuvenating, mositurizing and soothing sensitivity. Aloe vera can be great for helping hydration.

Medicinal herbs for skin care are now firmly established as the best way of restoring balance and hydration levels and encouraging re-growth of collagen. They are favored above the chemical substances which puts money into the cosmetic companies’ bank accounts. The downside of all that is that they sometimes have harmful effects such as irritation and can cause rashes and allergic reactions. Some of them have been linked to cancer. Because they lengthen shelf life, the companies cannot be bothered with herbs or natural oils. That is the hidden truth!

However, if you are tempted to make your own home remedies, remember that there is a lot of research that has been done on both the chemical substances and the medicinal herbs for skin care. By now, we know that we should look carefully at any products we buy and steer clear of alcohol, fragrances and mineral oils.

There is a whole new brave world of research being done on medicinal herbs for skin and there are natural substances which can transform skin care. Why not learn what these herbal skin care products are and take the guesswork out of home concoctions? The company which is mentioned on my website is committed to extremely high standards in the purity and quality of its products.

Skin Care: 5 of the Best Herbs You can use

Article by Sean Prenderville-Finn

Are you happy in your skin or does it feel dry and uncomfortable? As winter bites many people have to deal with dry, itchy and irritated skin. What you need is a moisturizer lotion made with a natural emollient to replace the lost moisture. The most natural emollients are advocado oil, olive oil and lanolin. But first it is recommended that you give serious consideration to the value of herbs and include them in your herbal skin care routine. Here are five of the best.

It may surprise you that one of the finest herbs is a bulbous plant which has a strong smell, not unpleasant and it makes your eyes water. It is the humble onion.

As you are well aware the onion is used in many cooking recipes and can be eaten raw if you wish or if you can bear it. But when the juice is extracted from the onion it contains an anti-inflammatory compound which may not suit your taste buds.

All is not a nasty taste, however, because when you decide to make a vegetable soup again just ad the brown papery skins to the pot to simmer. These skins add quercetin, which is an antioxidant containing anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties. Remove them before eating the soup.

One of the best known remedies for burns is the gel extracted from the leaf of the aloe plant. You can have a plant in your home but if this is too troublesome the gel can be purchased in a health store. The gel is effective in treating dry skin and some forms of dermatitis.

If you are partial to curries you will be familiar with turmeric, an Indian spice, which gives your curry that fellow colour. Its real benefit to you is in its powerful anti-inflammatory action contained in a compound called curcumin, an antioxidant, which has cancer fighting properties. Recent results from studies carried out on curcumin suggest that it may also be good for your brain. Your skin will be the better from using turmeric in your cooking.

When your skin is hot and inflamed the best astringent is witch hazel. It has a special compound which soothes your skin. The herb is not expensive and there are no side effects caused by its use.

Finally, there is evening primrose which has essential fatty acids. It is a wonderful moisturizer. It is ideal for dry skin problems. It gives great relief to itchy skin when taken in capsule form. The contents of the capsule can be rubbed into the skin like an oil. If you do not have evening primrose plants in your garden, health shops will have the capsules in stock.

Although the use of these herbs helps enormously in eliminating skin problems, you need to add a scientifically proven natural top quality product into your daily herbal skin care routine.

Herbs and Organic for Your Skin

Article by Jane Stratton

Skin care is not a topic of recent times; it has been in practice since ancient times, when herbal was probably the only way to take care of skin. However, it has transformed in a big way. Herbal routines have been replaced by synthetic/chemical-based skin care routines. The herbal recipes which once used to be common place are not so popular today (and even unknown to a large population). This transformation from herbal to synthetic, can probably be attributed to two things

Herbal Skin Care – Herbs For Healing Acne

Article by Ryan Cote

Herbs have been used for a wide variety of health care remedies since the beginning of time. Using elements that occur naturally can effectively treat acne and other skin conditions. Herbal skin care is affordable, accessible and less like to cause skin irritation and sensitivity than traditional medications. When certain herbs are applied to your skin topically, they can be a healthy alternative solution to prescription medications.

Eucalyptus: This essential oil comes from the eucalyptus tree, which is one of the tallest known trees in the world and can be found in Australia, Africa, North America, India and Southern Europe. Eucalyptus is the most powerful antiseptic in its class and has outstanding astringent qualities, which aid in the treatment of acne-prone skin.

Papaya Enzyme: The papaya is a tropical fruit that has a nutrient-rich enzyme called papin. This enzyme is used to dissolve unwanted proteins and other dead materials on the surface of your skin. The papaya enzyme works to open pores, exfoliate, promote the turnover of skin cells, soften and smooth skin and improve your overall skin tone.

Sage: This silvery-green plant has fragrant leaves and is found growing in the Mediterranean and North America. Sage oil contains chemical substances and other constituents, such as as camphor, cineole, rosmarinic acid, tannins and others. The substances found in sage oil have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral effects, which make it an outstanding medicinal skin treatment.

Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil is obtained from the leaves of the native Australian Melaleuca alternifolia tree. This oil has natural antibacterial qualities, contains antiseptic compounds and is proven to be a very good skin disinfectant. When used to treat acne, it is just as effective as 5% benzoyl peroxide and less drying. However, the results of treatment with tea tree oil take just a little bit longer to see than with benzoyl peroxide.

Thyme: Thyme is the general name for herbs of the Thymus species, which are native to the western Mediterranean region. The essential thyme oil is located in the small glands on the leaves and contains thymol, linalol and paracymene. Thyme is effective in treating acne-prone skin because of its multiple actions, including antibacterial, antioxidant, antiseptic and astringent.

Witch Hazel: Witch hazel is the common name for a genus of shrubs known as Hamamelis and is rich in natural astringents such as volatile oils and tannins. Witch hazel has antiseptic capabilities that tone the skin and blood vessels, as well as draw out clogged pores.

Exploring holistic remedies can give you clearer, more healthy skin. Incorporating herbal skin care products with natural ingredients into your daily skin care regimen will improve your skin’s overall appearance over time.
