Natural Remedies For Physical Wellbeing

The skin is the outermost physical aspect of our body. It reflects our appearance and personality. Often we neglect our skin, even though we know that it is important to maintain healthy skin. Our skin is exposed to a variety of elements throughout the day. We face harsh sunlight, pollution and dust every time we step of our homes. These elements can have a serious if not catastrophic effect on our skin. Right from skin rashes to skin cancer. In Australia, located in the southern hemisphere, an average of 15,000 people die of skin cancer every year.

While there isn’t much we can do about the sun and pollution, we can take it upon ourselves to look after our skin. Often people use cosmetics to cover up skin blemishes instead or using natural remedies. Cosmetics include eye and facial makeup, skin-care creams, lotions, powders, lipsticks and many more. Though the use of cosmetics dates back to 3500BC, modern cosmetics have a lot of variety. Different skin types have their specific products for example; dry skin has products with more moisturization whereas oily skin products have more excess oil soaking ingredients.

While cosmetics are widely used by consumers in all the worlds markets, it has its main applications in the fashion, movie and television industries. Generally cosmetics are considered safe. But every now and then there is a new study conducted in the harm caused by regular use of cosmetics. There have been movements around the world for cosmetic products without toxic substances, especially petroleum, paraben and sulfate based. Parabens and sulfates cause skin irritation and dermatitis. Prolonged use of makeup has been linked to thinning eyelashes. Of late, a lot of people are switching to natural remedies for skin care and enhancing their appearance.

There are various natural remedies available in the market these days, though not as much variety as conventional cosmetics. The biggest advantage of using natural remedies is that natural products can cure skin problems externally and internally. Conventional cosmetics only cover up or cure skin blemishes externally. Products made from plants can be used as creams or consumable syrups that purify the blood and remove internal toxins, hence making the skin appear better naturally. Another good option is cod liver oil, available in capsules or liquid form. Cod liver oil is knows to improve health and helps to repair damaged skin, hair and nails. Natural products have received praise in recent times.
