Could it be time to make your health, skin and beauty treatments more natural? Read on for some inspiration to get you started…
Natural eczema treatment
For treating the skin condition
Eczema affects up to 10% of adults and is a really unpleasant condition to have to deal with and live with. Itchy and dry skin can be painful and really distracting, and it can also make you feel self-conscious. If you are a sufferer, the chances are that you’ve already tried the high street brands that promise a cure. If these haven’t worked for you, start thinking more naturally. There is an Eczema treatment alternative that relies on what nature has already given you! There are clinics out there dedicated to the natural healing process. They do this by putting your own immune system to work and finding the healing potential here.
Oil pulling with coconut oil
For whiter teeth
There are lots of toothpastes, chemicals, and treatments currently on the market that promote whiter teeth. However, did you know that one little jar of an entirely natural treatment could have just the same effect? In fact, it could be even more effective! Coconut oil, swilled around your mouth for 15-minutes a morning can have multiple benefits. One of these is teeth whitening! Alternatively, if you want something that acts quicker. Grab a banana. Some swear that by resting a banana peel against your teeth, this quickly makes the white!
Homemade face mask
For clearer skin
Do you want clearer, brighter facial skin? However, are you put off by all the different brands in shops, all the chemicals they contain, and some of the prices? Then it’s time to learn to make your own face masks. The benefits of this are many. They’re cheaper, and you don’t need to leave the house to make them. Plus, you’re putting fresh ingredients on your face which are all natural and contain no chemicals or preservatives. A DIY banana face mask is often popular. You can make it several different ways, but a basic recipe is as follows. Mash a whole banana into a bowl, and add a good amount of honey and a few drops of lemon. If you want to make it exfoliating, add some oats also.
That being said, if you would rather not get messy and buy yours from a store instead, Lush are a leader in all-natural products of this nature.
For your beauty sleep
If you struggle to sleep peacefully at night, look to one of your strongest and most important senses to help you out. We’re talking about your sense of smell, of course! Don’t buy expensive sleep-promoting pillow sprays and roll-ons. Save money and time by using a drop or two of lavender to the same effect. The scent can help reduce anxiety and can help you drift off to a peaceful sleep. Adding a few drops to your pillow every night will make your brain start to relate that smell to the act of sleeping.
