natural-skin-care-products1If you walk into a store, you will find its shelves filled with so many beauty products. All of them will promise you miracles. All the people do not have the same skin and not all products are suitable for every skin type. If you have sensitive skin, then it needs special care. In this case the best way is to use herbal products.

To prevent having acne problems and keep the skin clean, you have to wash it often. Use a good cleanser that is made for your skin type and avoid using harsh face wash. In this case I would suggest you to go for a natural cleanser, which you can prepare at home. Add one cup of baking soda with two cups of ground oatmeal. Keep the mixture in an air tight container. To use it, take some of the mixture and add a bit of warm water and make a paste. This will cleanse and exfoliate at the same time.

You can use a simple homemade yogurt mask to keep the skin fresh and glowing. Add half a cup of oatmeal with one cup of yogurt (natural) and apply the mixture on your face. Keep it on for a while and wash it off with a washcloth. Steam the washcloth in the microwave, but be sure the cloth is not too hot.

For keeping the skin well hydrated, use a good water based moisturizer. Stay away from oil based products and products that contain chemicals. They can cause allergic reactions and skin irritation.

Nature has varieties of products for your skin. Do not forget about the natural essential oils, as they are very helpful. Tea tree oil and lavender helps to prevent acne, Litsea helps to heal skin irritation.

The best part of organic products is that they are easy to prepare and all the ingredients are easy to find. Now that you have all the recipes, go and pamper yourself.
