Guide to Herbal Skincare

Have you ever heard of herbal skincare and wonder what is it? Today we will be looking into this particular topic and we hope we can answer some of the questions that you guys have been asking. 

Skincare is not a topic of recent times, it has been in practice since ancient times. Back then herbal skincare was probably the only way to take care of the skin. Fortunately, skincare has transformed in many ways, it is now a billion-dollar industry and it's still improving as time passes. These days herbal skincare routines have been replaced by synthetic or chemical-based skincare routines. Herbal skincare recipes which once used to be the staple of skincare are no longer as popular today and unfortunately even unknown to a large population. This transformation from herbal skincare to synthetic, can probably be attributed to a few things, our laziness, the fast pace of lives and the commercialization of skincare. Even herbal skincare products have been commercialised. These commercial herbal skincare products have to be mixed with preservatives in order to increase their shelf-life, hence making them less effective than the fresh ones made at home.

 

However, it seems that things are changing really fast and more people are now opting for natural and herbal skincare routines. But still, no one wants to make them at home and hence the commercial market of herbal skincare products is on the rise.

 

So you may ask, what are these herbs or herbal skin care mechanisms?

 

One of the most popular one would be Aloe vera, yup you guessed it right. Aloe vera is an extract from the Aloe plant it is one of the best examples of herbal skincare products. Freshly extracted aloe vera is a natural hydrant that helps in soothing skin. It also helps in healing cuts and treating sunburns. 

 

To name few other of herbs that are known to possess cleansing properties. Dandelion, chamomile, lime flowers and rosemary herbs, are a few examples of such cleansers. Their herbal skin care properties get invoked when they are combined with other herbs like tea. 

 

Antiseptics are another pretty important part of Herbal skincare. Lavender, marigold, thyme and fennel are good examples of herbs that are known to possess antiseptic properties. Lavender water and rose water also form good toners. 

 

Oils prepared from herbal extracts present another means of herbal skincare. Tea tree oil, Lavender oil, borage oil, and primrose oil are some popular oils used in herbal skincare. Some fruit oils like extracts from fruits like banana, apple and melon do find use in shower gels as a hydrating mix too.

 

Tea also plays an important part in herbal skincare. Tea extracts are used for treatment of skin that has been damaged by UV radiation. 

 

Homeopathic treatments and aromatherapies also come under the umbrella of herbal skin care remedies. 

 

Herbal skincare is good not only for the routine nourishing of skin but also for treatment of skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis. Most herbal skin care products do not have any side effects (the most important reason for preferring them over synthetic products) However, herbal skincare products can be easily made at home, hence making them even more attractive cause you can save some good money doing so. With that being said, herbal skincare is the way to go. Moreover, this does not mean that you totally discard the synthetic products. Some people go to the extent of debating with their dermatologist if he or she suggests a synthetic product. You should accept the fact that some skin orders might need the usage of clinically proven non-herbal skincare products.
