On these pages are natural cures for skin that we have used ourselves or have verified with health books. These alternative cures may use herbs, pure essential oils, vitamins, and/or food. They are more than home remedies, folk medicine, or old wives' tales!
Talk to your doctor before making any major change. Starting a natural remedy may require your doctor to change the dose of your prescription medicines. You can read more about this in our articles.
In times past, light skin meant that you must be rich enough to have hired help. Today, being very tan means that you are rich enough to enjoy leisure activities in the sun. We may be healthier now after soaking up all of this sunshine, but ladies of the past surely did not have skin that felt and looked like wrinkled leather like sun "worshipers" do now.
We only need 20 minutes per week in the sunshine to get our requirement of Vitamin D.
Cigarette smoking is not only bad for you internally, it speeds up the aging process of the face many times over.
We spend so much money to keep the skin soft and smooth, and trying to make it look and feel younger -- mostly on products that are full of chemicals. Think of your kitchen instead. Mayonnaise, olive oil, avocadoes, and even butter are all wonderful softeners. Honey makes a mask that kills bacteria, heals, softens, and helps wrinkles better than the expensive creams. You can clean your hair with eggs,and stop the pain of a burn or bring down a fever with egg whites. And, companies are now coming out with wonderful fruit drink concoctions that really help skin conditions. The richest countries are now rediscovering the natural things that the poorer countries have known and used for centuries.
We have a built-in lip smoother. When you are caught in the elements with no chapstick, lip gloss, or vaseline, rub your finger along the side of your nose or over your forehead. Then, rub your finger over your lips. Most people have enough oil there to soften and protect their lips.
