While many synthetic-based products promise supple, glowing skin, most of them come with side effects and hefty price tags. Herbs, on the other hand, have limited side effects and are very useful in everything ranging from beauty, skincare, health, fertility, and so much more. Ditching synthetic products for herbs or plants can help save money, and leave you with glowing skin!
Here are a few of our favorites:
Witch hazel is our favorite skincare herb. This herb is a natural astringent, and the extracts can be used as a toner or even a moisturizer. Witch hazel is also an excellent antiseptic, and has anti-inflammatory properties, which relieve itching. Witch hazel is excellent for oily skin, and also helps with eliminating acne. The extracts can be mixed and applied topically with aloe vera.
Chamomile is known for being a calming herb; it soothes skin irritations like eczema and acne, and can also help with cuts and burns. Chamomile can be consumed as a tea, or the extracts can be topically applied. It also makes for an excellent blonde hair rinse!
Aloe is more of a plant than an herb, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s very useful! Aloe Vera gel serves as an excellent moisturizer, an anti-inflammatory ointment, and it can be used to soothe burns, wounds, and irritated skin. Aloe Vera is easy to use, and the gel can be applied topically.
Beautiful and glowing skin can be achieved with herbs and plants, so try it out today!
