Some days, it doesn’t seem like your skin stands a chance. Smog, polluted water, overexposure to the sun, and other environmental factors conspire against a rosy glow, as do poor diet, lack of rest, and stress. Faced with such obstacles, how can you create, maintain, and protect healthy skin?
Herbal treatments may offer a safe, effective route to a wholesome complexion. Each herb contains different chemical constituents, meaning that, with a little study, you can create a treatment that’s not only easy and inexpensive to make, but also fits your individual skin-care needs.
Analyzing The Surface: …Whether a person’s skin is oily or dry depends to some extent on heredity and age. A teenager, whose oil glands are especially active, normally has much oilier skin than an elderly person. However, a person’s skin also can become oily or dry as a result of environmental factors or stress, or even from a poorly designed skin-care regimen. Fortunately, skin imbalances can be corrected. We know, for example, that our skin needs a balance of oil and water to provide a smooth surface; requires proteins such as collagen for support; and depends on a slightly acidic skin surface to keep harmful fungi and viruses in check. By recognizing your skin’s needs, you can select the appropriate herbal treatment to keep the skin in balance.
