Sometimes you don’t need expensive beauty products you can be a natural beauty; I’m all about natural sources and benefits that come from the wild. There are a lot of things you can get out of herbs — they are not only great for adding interest to your cooking, but also can contribute wonderfully to your beauty regime.
The herbs below can all help towards your daily beauty regime. Nothing added, just raw herbs that will work wonders!
Lavender is unbelievably calming — there’s no surprise that it’s one of the most popular herbs using in beauty products. A couple of days ago I filled a bowl of boiling water with lavender buds and placed my head over the bowl, gently above the steam, with a towel over my head. It was so relaxing and my pores felt purified.
Mint is great for treating skin conditions — it has amazing antibacterial properties that can help eliminating blocked pores. You can crush a small amount of leaves until they come into a paste and massage them into areas that are irritated.
Chamomile soothes inflamed skin and is incredibly calming. Try soaking a cotton face towel into some infused chamomile tea and press it onto your face, it will leave your complexion looking radiant!
Rosemary is an acne-fighting herb — and it can help tighten the skin, too. This herb contains anti-fungal and antibacterial properties which will help prevent breakouts and plump and brighten your skin.
So this summer… why not grow your own little herb garden and save some money on beauty products?
