Natural Skin Care Remedies

Most of us suffer from some skin condition at least once or twice during their lives, sometimes for extended periods of time. For example, teens usually have to deal with pimples and acne outbreaks for years. 

Older folks can develop psoriasis and dry, scaly skin, as well as the inevitable wrinkles. Here we offer some natural skin care remedies to ward off these troublesome skin problems. These natural skin treatments can even reverse existing damage, such as scars and minimize the effects of the aging process, not only where it's visible, on your skin, but all throughout your body. Let's take a look at some of these wonder workers. They are all inexpensive and do not carry the side effects of many pharmaceutical medications.

You've heard it before, but it must be said: your diet is essential to healthy skin. If you're a teen, avoid fatty foods, such as the beloved greasy hamburger and fries. Everyone needs a certain amount of oil for good health, but the type does matter. Olive oil should be your all purpose cooking oil – it contains no cholesterol, trans fats or hydrogenated oils. Cold water fish, such as halibut, salmon and sardines contain plentiful amounts of the Omega-3 fatty acids, which are good fats for people of every age. As you can, eat lots of produce, rich in vitamins and trace minerals, such as zinc. Red and orange colored vegetables are always rich in beta-carotene, the richest form of vitamin A. Organic produce is best because there are no pesticides used in growing them. Make these foods a core part of your regular diet. A lifetime of healthy eating may well be your greatest asset among natural skin care remedies. Your skin will reward you with a beautiful complexion.

There are several blood cleansing herbs which will perform a thorough cleansing of your body. In today's world, toxins are almost impossible to avoid and you don't want these accumulating in your body, promoting conditions such as acne, pimples, boils and psoriasis. The cleaner your body is on the inside, the better you'll look on the outside! These natural skin care remedies are almost magical in their effects.

Here's an effective herbal combination for acne vulgaris, psoriasis, eczema and rashes: Chaparrel and Dandelion root are the main constituents, with lesser amounts of Burdock root, Licorice root, Echinacea, Kelp and just a bit of cayenne. Find an herb shop which employs a Master Herbalist ('you can let your fingers do the walking') and ask them to make up a mixture in the correct amounts. Buy a bag of size '00' capsules and put the mixture into capsules. Alternatively, you might ask if there is a ready made product already in capsules. This is a bit more expensive, but definitely worth the price as a natural skin care remedy.

You may be surprised to know that vitamin E can erase scars, over time. If you have a recent acne scar, use a sterilized needle to puncture a vitamin E capsule and apply directly to the scar. Vitamin E is very sticky, so arrange to use it at a time that's convenient to your purpose, such as doing homework or watching TV. Alternatively, you can purchase vitamin E oil in small jars. Be sure to check for potency, as products vary. A small jar containing 28,000I.U. Is most effective in the shortest period of time. The older the scar, the longer it will take to erase. This works on any area of your skin. For removing or minimizing scars, vitamin E is unsurpassed among the natural skin care remedies.

Cosmetic skin creams are quite expensive. The following natural skin care remedies for dry or aging skin work extremely well and are inexpensive. Most health food stores carry natural oils in bulk. Young skin responds well to sweet almond oil, a light non-greasy oil which makes your skin radiant. Avocado oil is a bit heavier, but good for those who have noticed a few wrinkles starting to show up. Got more than a few wrinkles? Try Jojoba oil, heavier but quite the wrinkle remedy!

You'll find that natural skin care remedies are budget friendly and far more effective than prescription medicines. Natural is good! (TIMExplore.com)
