Medicinal herbs can heal and balance the skin. Many herbs (which are packed with minerals, antioxidants, and bioflavonoids) are great for the skin. Herbs can help cleanse, hydrate, heal, and balance the skin.
Skin contains naturally occurring oils. These oils, also known as sebum, protect and lubricate the skin. Washing with harsh soaps or alcohol based cleansers removes sebum and damages the skin. In order to get the best out of skin, we need to treat skin gently.
But with modern life comes skin which is prone to developing problems. Symptoms of poor skin health include sores, spots, cracks, oiliness, dryness, scaling, itching, chapping, pimples, and rash. Causes are varied and, according to Every Green Herb, may include stress, caffeine overload, allergies, high copper levels, poor digestion, constipation, poor circulation, lack of exercise, sun damage, irritating cosmetics, liver malfunction, air pollution, dehydration, and drug or alcohol abuse.
In order to improve skin health, we can start with improving our diet. Healthy skin requires good diet and lots of water. Include citrus fruits, whole grains, carrots, beets, cucumbers, and other fresh veggies in the diet to maintain beautiful skin.
But we should also look at what products we use on the outside of our skin, and in terms of gentle care, Dr. Spiller Biomimetic Skin Care Herbal Cleansing Gel is one of the best products to start with.
