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.
