Natural solutions to skincare woes

While there are a plethora of chemical-based expensive products with anti-ageing, moisturising and sun-blocking properties, nothing can be compared to a healthy skincare routine consisting of natural and herbal ingredients.

A wonderful concoction from aloe vera and virgin coconut oil, for instance, can be used as a mild yet effective skincare item.

These two ingredients are great allies in minimising skin troubles and nourishing it. Aloe vera contains 18 amino acids as well as vitamins B1, B3, B6, and C, which nourish the skin and help fight off free radicals that cause wrinkles. It is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and is best for treating acne and provides relief from sunburn, according to Coconut for Life.

Coconut oil and coconut milk contain saturated fatty acids like lauric acid, which have strong antibacterial properties and can help fight acne as they can trap the water into the skin by creating a barrier with essential fatty lipids. It also contains vitamin E that improves the elasticity of the skin.

Coconut milk contains vitamins B6, B3, C, phosphorus, magnesium, and other elements that nourish the skin and help remove blemishes and wrinkles. One way of incorporating coconut milk into a skincare routine is using a natural body wash infused with it and castile soap.

Summer days this year are extremely hot with high levels of humidity, which can cause excessive sweating. This, in turn, may result in clogged pores and acne breakouts. Moreover, exposure to harmful UV rays from the sun also contributes to causing wrinkles.

Therefore, to ensure a proper skincare routine, prepare for the hot days with glowing and healthy skin blessed by nature’s gifts.
