Home Remedy Options for Skincare

You want clear, clean, healthy skin, but you don’t want to pay a fortune for skincare products. You also know that a lot of commercially-available skincare products contain problematic ingredients. There’s good news! You’ll find quite a few home remedy options for skincare that are both affordable and gentle on your skin. We’ll run through the ones you should know about below.

Dry Skin

Struggling with dry skin? While there are lots of products on the market that promise to help, most of them ultimately cause damage. Instead, consider something like coconut oil. It’s an effective moisturizer, plus it’s antibacterial. Best of all? There are no unwanted ingredients like parabens or petroleum byproducts. Did I mention that it’s also anti-inflammatory? With that being said, there is some potential to clog pores (as with any oil), so you might want to use this on your body, but not your face.

Oatmeal

Good old oatmeal – it’s great for your heart, but did you also know it’s good for your skin? That’s why it’s touted on the labels of so many commercial products. An oatmeal bath can soothe irritation and help your skin retain much-needed moisture. It also helps treat quite a few skin conditions, such as eczema.

Honey

Give your skin a sweet treat! Honey is a powerful aid in the battle against aging skin and fights wrinkles. It also exfoliates, while treating many different skin conditions. You can use it on its own, or combine it with other ingredients to create scrubs and baths.

Essential Oils

Lemon, rose, and jojoba oils can be combined with carrier oils to create powerful anti-aging skincare products. They help to fight wrinkles and other signs of aging, and can also reduce redness and help with other skin challenges you might be facing. Make sure to dilute them with a carrier oil first, though. Undiluted, they can cause irritation and damage.

Aloe Vera

Renowned for its ability to treat burns and sunburns, aloe vera is also a must-have tool to help keep your skin strong and healthy. It brings healing properties to the table, but also stimulates new cell growth and moisturizes your skin, without clogging up your pores the way oils will do.

These are just some of the many home remedy options for skincare. There are plenty of others! Probiotics, Gotu kola, shea butter, tea tree oil, and even soy can all help you heal damage, moisturize, and fight the signs of aging.
