Natural Skin Cream
Many consumers are looking for natural skin cream, facial beauty products, or even considering making their own homemade beauty products. Why? Because no one wants a list of unpronounceable chemicals on their skin. Natural products offer a gentler, healthier approach to skin care.
First, if you’re shopping for a natural beauty product remember that words like “natural”, “herbal” and “organic” have become industry buzz words. Not every product using these words is necessarily giving you Mother Nature’s best. For example, a product might indicate organic ingredients when only a couple of the components are organic. Unless merchandise bears the USDA certified organic seal – it doesn’t qualify as a truly organic product.
One of the best applications for well-made natural skin care cream is on damaged skin. This type of skin is already susceptible to infection, and adding harsh chemicals into the equation won’t help anything. Whether its acne scars, sun damage, rashes, or scrapes, when the dermis burns or tears it may leave scars, ugly stretch marks or cause premature aging in the skin. The sooner you begin treating your skin after damage, the better.
Going the natural route, honey offers one great option that’s right in your kitchen. Honey has antioxidants that nourish your skin and help it retain that youthful glow. It helps protect your skin from bacteria and viruses thanks to anti-pathogenic qualities. And while you can certainly find products that use honey as an ingredient there’s no reason not to use it in raw form. A little dab goes a long way. You can also add honey to egg masks or olive oil-basil treatments.
Shea Butter Basics
Products containing shea butter make an excellent choice for natural skin care. Shea butter comes from the seeds of the Shea tree and has high amounts of Vitamin A and E, both of which moisturize and heal skin. The antioxidant value of Vitamin A means it’s good for various skin irritations like dermatitis. Shea Butter fights blemishes, eczema and wrinkles too.
Many glorious ancient civilizations used olive oil for skin care and for healing wounds. Cleopatra herself was said to use it on her skin to maintain her beauty. Even today it’s widely regarded as an excellent natural moisturizer that also heals and sooths inflammation. The darker green the olive oil, the better it is for skin care.
Basil can be added to olive oil, honey or shea butter to make your own natural skin cream. Basil has anti-aging qualities, being rich in Vitamin A. When blended with any or all of these other natural components it works effectively on bug bites and dry, irritated skin.
