The seasonal transition from winter to spring leaves the skin feeling dry and irritated. The Wrxight Beauty Bar has professional skincare products to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, and natural remedies may provide some additional benefits. Growing your herb garden gives you control over the cultivation and harvesting, and you can also add a little of nature’s flavors to your cooking.
Start with High Quality, Skin-Friendly Oils
Before you start rubbing leaves on your skin to extract the benefits of herbs, there’s an easier way. Using high-quality oils as a base for your herbal infusions offers a combined benefit. Olive oil has many nutrients that are essential for skin health, such as vitamin E. Olive oil helps with chafing, attracts moisture to your skin and soothes irritated skin. Another great skin-friendly option is grape seed oil that replenishes essential fatty acids, helps with tissue repair and keeps your skin hydrated. You may also want to try sunflower oil, wheat germ oil, coconut oil, and safflower oil.
If you have ever tried a nice cup of chamomile tea, you understand how this lovely herb calms and soothes you. The same is true for your skin. The anti-inflammatory and allergy-fighting properties of this delicate white flower help with irritated skin, certain skin conditions, and acne. For an extra special treat, use chamomile to soak tired feet.
Age spots, stretch marks, inflammation, rashes and much more may respond to treatment with calendula. The essential oils in this herb are linked to tissue regeneration and healing. The petals of the flowers are shown to have antiseptic properties and stimulate the immune system.
To quickly soothe dry, irritated skin, try peppermint. When the essential oils are applied to your skin, the nerves detect the cooling properties. Peppermint also helps with sore joints and muscles. Using peppermint is great for oily skin and a lackluster complexion.
