Jennifer from wrote the following article about natural skin remedies:

My bathroom cupboard is full of an assortment of creams and lotions for every occasion: moisturizers and body treatments, some of which used to be very expensive. I say used to be because since I discovered how easy it is to make my own, I have never looked back.

I am a beauty therapist and while working in my salon I was using some wonderful natural products by well known brands. Porridge and aromatherapy oils were common ingredients in products which would cost anything between $70-$100.

Now think about it : if somebody came up to you and said, I will make and apply some porridge onto your face and for good measure I will even rinse it off for you again, and only charge you $100," would you pay them that kind of figure ? And yet, people do - because of the name or brand of the product.

However, you can make your own spa treatments - at least a of the cost - every bit as nice, if not nicer. And better still, you know exactly what they contain - no chemicals.

Honey is brimming over with natural antioxidants which help protect the skin from the sun's strong rays. Honey also has the ability to attract and retain moisture, making it wonderful to use as a face mask for all skin types.

Before you apply your facial, open up your pores by placing a hot towel over your face.

Honey Facial Mask Honey and oats are used in the beauty industry to soften and heal the skin tissue and help attract moisture to the skin
  • 1-2 tbs of honey
  • 1 cup porridge oats
  • 1 tbs of rose water
  • 3 drops lavender essential oil
Mix all the above ingredients together and apply to your face, neck and shoulder area. Add more rose water if the mixture is too thick. Now relax, leaving the mask on for at least 20 - 30 minutes.

Milk and Honey Cleanser

  • Half cup honey
  • Half cup yoghurt
  • 3 teaspoons rosewater
  • Mix ingredients together and store in a container in the fridge. Apply a small amount to the face and neck and massage gently. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry.

    Finally two of my favorite first aid skin treatments for those emergencies:

    Lavender essential oil is a brilliant little bottle to keep handy especially for emergencies. Dab some lavender oil onto red angry spots using a cotton wool pad, and it will reduce the redness very quickly, making the spot less obvious.

    Vinegar can soothe sunburn by soaking in a vinegar (4-5 cupfuls) bath for 15-20 minutes, making sure the water is cool otherwise you may feel you are on fire. Alternatively you can use cotton wool to apply directly onto the sunburn without diluting.

    These natural skin remedies can greatly improve the health of your skin. You will also want to look into skin care products that are chemical free and include some of the powerful new ingredients that can actually reverse some of the damage that time has brought upon your skin.
