Natural Skin Care Remedies

My Favorite Natural and  Herbal Remedies for Skin

natural skin care remedies

Natural skin care remedies can provide relief for acne, rosacea, hives, psoriasis and other chronic skin problems, without the side effects that many prescription and over the counter medicines.

I've been doing research for a number of years to learn more about natural ways to treat skin problems.  If you've already seen your dermatologist or doctor, and are still not finding relief, you may want to explore some other options.

Sometimes a dietary change, a simple home remedy or a change to a hypoallergenic product line is enough to clear up your sensitive skin ... however sometimes you need something more.

That is where natural skin care remedies can be helpful!  I invite you to browse these ideas, as some can be used for more than one skin condition.

Please be aware that I am not a medical professional, I am someone with sensitive skin just like you.  These are some of the remedies I've found that can work well for sensitive skin.

Please do your own research and ALWAYS do a skin test before trying any new remedy or skincare product.

These are some of the natural skin care remedies that I have found  which can provide nontoxic relief for chronic skin problems.  I've researched these for you, the same way I look for my own skin care needs. 

These products contain no parabens, fragrances or harsh preservatives, and I use these myself or would use if I had the skin condition noted.

Be sure to always do a skin test to see how your skin reacts to any new product!

Also, please be aware that skin care ingredients can change so be sure to do your own research to be sure that the products will work for your sensitive skin.

Lastly, what works for one person may not work for another.  I encourage you to learn about which product ingredients may work best for your unique body!

Many of these remedies work for more than one type of chronic skin problem.

Natural Remedies for Acne

Acne is an embarrassing and painful condition that shows up during times of change in our lives. When a simple home remedy or change of diet is not enough, there are a number of natural skin care remedies that you can use safely even if you have sensitive skin.

Cleure's Adult Acne Skin Relief System is the best place to start when you have oily, acne prone skin.  These gentle products are surprisingly effective at allowing your skin to balance and heal by cleaning gently without irritation.  These are my #1 recommended products for acne and sensitive skin.

Pur03 Ozonated Avocado Oil is a simple, two ingredient natural remedy for acne as well as skin irritations, bacterial and fungal infections.  Contains avocado oil which is oxygenated with ozone, creating a simple and potent salve to dab on blemishes, without the use of herbs or multiple ingredients.  

The avocado oil is medium strength potency, and if you need a milder acne remedy, try the Ozonated Jojoba Oil instead.

MyChelle Clear Skin Pore Refining Serum helps to tighten pores, reduce oil on the skin, and contains skin nourishing probiotics and a number of gentle botanicals that balance and calm acne prone skin.  

MyChelle Clear Skin Spot Treatment can be applied as soon as you see an acne blemish.  It contains natural detoxifiers, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial ingredients and probiotics that help restore and clear your skin.

Hives Homeopathic is a gentle homeopathic remedy that you place under your tongue to help relieve the symptoms of itching, redness and swelling of hives.  Many people find this remedy helpful however not everyone believes that homeopathic remedies can work.  I've found that homeopathic can be very effective if I use the right remedy.

This Calendula Ointment contains Aloe Vera and Calendula, along with homeopathic Chamomilla and Psorinum.  It has fewer ingredients and may work better for some with sensitive skin.

Natural Remedies for Clear Skin

Taking care of your skin isn't just about applying creams and lotions. The health of your skin is directly related to the health of your whole body.

These natural skincare remedies and supplements can help your body to create clear skin from the inside out!

Zupafood for Skin is a new superfood blend made by one of my favorite skincare companies.  It that alkalizes and refreshes the body, and produces noticeable results in the appearance and health of skin.

This supplement makes a noticeable difference in my skin, I've taken it for years.  Green Pasture Blue Ice Royale is a blend of fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin A butter oil.  Not only has my skin gotten softer and more radiant, but since taking this I've had no cavities or dental problems!

Earthrise Spirulina is another of my favorite skin supplements.  Spirulina has a number of health benefits, and can provide some detoxification support as well, so start slowly.  I like the quality of the Earthrise brand.  After having tried a number of different brands of spirulina, Earthrise is my favorite.

Omega 3 DHA Fish Oil has a number of benefits, and one of the more noticeable ones is smooth and glowing skin.

CleureOil Free products for sensitive skin

Cleure Oil Free Products for Sensitive Skin are the most effective hypoallergenic products for oily skin, enlarged porest and acne that I've found.   They actually will dissolve oils without stripping your skin, and will moisturize without causing grease on your face.  

These will work on oily sensitive skin as well as dry AND oily sensitive skin.  The cleanser even removed ink stains from my arm one day, without any irritation! These are really remarkable products, which I use even at my age :) due to combination skin!   

Natural Remedies for Allergies

Allergies can aggravate your sensitive skin, and those of us who suffer from sensitive skin also may be more likely to get allergies. These are some simple and effective natural remedies for allergies.

Whole Food Digestive Enzymes can help to decrease inflammation in your body, which for some people can help allergies.  I recommend this brand by Innate Response, as they create supplements out of whole foods, which my body tolerates so much better than most supplements.  

Natural Remedies for Stress

One of the most common causes of most chronic skin problems is stress. You may know this from your own personal experience.

You are getting ready for that important job interview or an important date with a special someone, and the next thing you know ... Yikes!! You have a new skin breakout!! :(

It is not always possible to control the stresses in our lives, but we can control how we react to stress. Slowing down, breathing, and having an intention to be peaceful rather than overwhelmed, can go a long way towards reducing stress.

These natural remedies for stress can be helpful in finding that place of inner calm in the midst of the storms of life.

Natural Calm is my favorite stress remedy ... it is a magnesium supplement that you place in warm water and drink.  I feel a noticeable change as soon as I drink it.  There are several flavors to choose from.  You can drink it plain or add a bit of stevia to it.

When all else fails, try Rescue Remedy!  This is a time honored Bach Flower Remedy for stress that even works for my three cats!  This version is alcohol free, good for children, pets and sensitive adults.  Highly recommended!

If you are beyond the beyond stressed out, take a moment to breathe and try one of my favorite health tools, this Wooden Foot Roller which will instantly relax your whole body.  It also comes with a foot massage ball and a chart to help you locate and relieve areas of stress.  

This gentle Aromatherapy Mist is a simple and easy way to experience the benefit of essential oils withouth needing a diffuser or having to mix them into carrier oil.  I like this brand, Asutra, which I use for magnesium spray also, see below!

I use this Magnesium Spray whenever my muscles get super tense, or when I start getting muscle cramps from stress.  It helps reduce my headaches also!
