Most of the creams we buy in the market contain herbs and plant ingredients. These creams are however most times on the pricey side. You can however make your own cream with herbs and essential oils. Beautiful skin shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg. You can still achieve the same results as the people using the store bought creams.
Rosewater has been used as a gentle astringent and it is anti-inflammatory . Use with a cotton swab as a toner or spritz onto your face a few times a day .
Aloe is well known for treating burns and scrapes, but you can use it on any irritated skin. A face mask made of aloe and honey will greatly soothe and moisturize your skin. You can buy the gel in stores but it’s always best if you have a plant to ensure purity .
CHAMOMILE AND THYME
Infused into a strong tea,chamomile and thyme make a great and gentle cleanser for oily skin. Pour a liter of this tea into your bath to help clear up body blemishes,it also relaxes you after a hard day at work.
Lavender is soothing and antiseptic,so it’s a great solution for burns,psoriasis, infections and sensitive skin in general. Make a spritzer with strong lavender tea, or a small spray bottle filled with distilled water and a few drops of lavender oil (start with a low dilution, then keep adding drops until you find the strength that’s right for you).
Neem is anti-bacterial. The oil is used to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, and it has a strong, garlic-type smell, so it may not be part of your daily skin care routine, but it’s good to have around for when you really need the stronger stuff.
