Utilizing Natural Ingredients

There are many different plants and herbs that can heal and enhance your skin. Unfortunately, most people know about the healing properties that test ingredients offer.

One of the most common ingredients that is used in natural skin treatments is mint. Mint comes from the mint plant and contains helpful components such as menthol which naturally cleans your skin.

To achieve beautiful skin, try applying a thin layer of mint juice on your face each night. This helps prevent acne and keeps your skin cool and clean.

Papaya is another natural ingredient that can be used in natural skin treatments. Like mint, papaya contains a special ingredient, in this case it is papain which has antibacterial qualities. Aside from actually treating wounds, papaya is very useful in eliminating brown spots. You can find many recipes online for a beautiful papaya mask.

Other herbs to check out include turmeric, walnut, rice flour, and neem.

Maintain a Healthy Diet

Many people throughout the world do not recognize the connection between skin care and diet. Put it simply, your skin reflects your diet. A healthy diet ensures that your skin glows and also plays a large role in preventing acne. Here are a few tips for making sure your diet is perfect!

First, drink plenty of water. Water hydrates your skin which just helps your overall skin health.

Second, eat whole grains over regular or processed grains. Whole wheat grains contain better ingredients than regular grains.

      Great tips. I'm moving towards using more natural products for my skin. I recently tried using a natural mask using ingredients form my kitchen. Nothing beats using natural products.

      Very useful Hub. The skin is one of the most important organs and really needs to be taken well care of. I agree that a healthy diet is a crucial aspect of this and the staying away from junk food and additives will go a long way in helping to keep your skin healthy.

      When you say that Papaya can be used on brown spots, do you mean sun damage or can it be used to lighten any darker pigmentation on the face. I have reddish scars from acne that I would love to get rid of!
