I try to avoid harmful chemicals in beauty products. Animal friendly and natural will sell me every time. This does not mean that I don’t believe in using chemicals for my skin and hair. (I will be the first one to sign up for some heavy duty cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatments once it is within my budget!!) Chemicals give great results and as long as they are not causing harm or promoting cancer I am fine with it. I also don’t believe that just because something says “natural” does not make it “healthy”. There are many things found in nature that I would never put in my hair or on my face. (eeew!) We all know that there is no fast and easy cure for things like deep wrinkles and a bad dye job. Damage is damage. There are however, natural products that are scientifically proven to change the composition of skin and hair to cause improvements when applied topically. Most natural ingredients are proven to work over time with regular use. Here are 5 natural beauty remedies that work whether you believe it or not.

Soy

Soy prevents the transfer of melanin which prevents and reduces hyperpigmentation (dark/age spots) in the skin. Soy heals and moisturizes dry skin and renews skin cells for soft and radiant skin. Soy extract is a non oily moisturizer that improves the look and feel of damaged and dry hair.

Vitamin C

Vitamin -C has anti-oxidant effects help prevent aging by stimulating the production of collagen to minimize fine lines, wrinkles and even scar tissue. It heals blemishes too! Look for fat soluble forms called ester and/or ascorbic palmitate rather than water soluble ascorbic acid.

Green Tea

Green tea extract fights free radicals to reduce sun damage and protect against skin cancer when applied topically. Use it under sunscreen to provide an extra dose of protection, slow signs of aging, reduce sagging skin and minimize wrinkles.

Honey

Honey is a long time leader in antibacterial healing properties. Use to to cleanse your pores, banish acne and condition your hair. It can be applied directly to skin and hair or mixed with other natural ingredients such as epsom salts for a facial scrub or jojoba oil as a hair conditioning mask. Honey is a natural humectant so it locks and seals moisture in to skin and hair.

Tea Tree Oil

I saved the best for last! Tea Tree Oil is a “cure all” that has dramatic affects on the human body. As far as beauty goes, it can give you a better smilie by reducing gingivitis and plaque. Want naturally beautiful skin? Consistent use of Tea Tree Oil for 45 days cured acne better and with less irritation than popular benzoyl peroxide products.  (source) If dry scalp or psoriasis is wreaking havoc on your hair, the potent antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties in tea tree oil is your solution.

  1. I didn’t know that any of these could be used as beauty remedies. I am starting with the honey first 🙂

  2. This is SO GREAT! I love the idea of using all natural sources to help in my beauty routine. No more chemicals on my body or washed down the drain.

  3. I am a firm supporter of honey and tea tree oil- they do wonders for my hair and skin (honey moreso my skin.) These are great tips!

  4. I’m going to have to look more into these natural skin boosters. My 4th pregnancy has wrecked havoc on my skin and it seems not matter what I try it’s a losing battle. Maybe I’m just looking for a solution in the wrong places!

  5. I had no clue. So many great items. I remember being prescribed tea tree oil shampoo for a psoriasis break out at the base of my neck

  6. I just got Tea Tree Oil last week because I heard about the oral benefits! Looking forward to seeing results! I also had no idea about soy for aging spots – thanks for that tip!

  7. I have used Tea Tree Oil for years. It is great for so many different things. I will have to try Soy for my dark spots.

  8. I can’t believe I use so many of these. There are times when we over complicate things only to find that the old things work and work well, thank you for sharing this post. I am going to have to share it with my friends.
