This sweet stuff is going to help get rid of all that red stuff. The caffeine in this wonder food helps reduce redness and inflammation, and can help smooth out skin to make it appear all firm and taut.
This wunderkind of the food world boasts a mile-long list of benefits. One of the best moisturizers Mother Earth produces, with natural antiviral properties and a hefty dose of vitamin E that helps keep major skin conditions under control.
Vitamin E - The Healer
Vitamin E soothes eczema and psoriasis, and delivers a healthy dose of antioxidants to the skin, which can help boost collagen production and promote new skin cell growth. You want this over-achiever on your team.
Dead Sea Salt
There’s a reason people come from all over to take a dip in the Dead Sea. This salt has 21 different minerals that can help soothe the skin. We’re talking magnesium to help slow aging, potassium to help moisturize, and calcium to keep those cell membranes good and strong. We can go on and on, but that would be like bragging.
Tea Tree Oil
Kind of like your skin’s bodyguard. Tea Tree Oil has serious anti-viral and anti-fungal properties that help destroy bacteria and disinfect the pores, so you can nip any nasty stuff in the bud.
How sweet it is. This natural exfoliator is super gentle, so go ahead and rub it all over. Brown sugar is a also natural humectant, so it’ll help keep that moisture locked and loaded.
Acne got you down? Jojoba Oil helps dissolve sebum (that stuff that clogs your pores). And, even though it sinks right in (no greasy stuff here), it’ll also keep moisture locked inside the skin. An acne treatment that doesn’t dry you out? Yeah, we went there.
Grape Seed Oil
Another anti-aging powerhouse, this non-allergenic oil helps protect the natural elastin and collagen in your skin, keeping you looking trim and toned all over.
These lovely leaves are full of protein, calcium, and vitamins A and B, and is great at soothing and healing sores. Got eczema, rheumatism, or psoriasis? This is your new BFF.
Mint isn’t just refreshing on the palate - it’s pretty refreshing for your skin, too. This everyday herb helps reduce swelling and redness, and soothes itchiness, and its natural salicylic acid kicks out any dead skin cells. With a dash of vitamin B to brighten, you’ve got the recipe for happy.
Kind of the queen of moisturizers. This luscious spread is full of essential fatty acids, which helps keep your collagen up and running and keeps that skin good and elastic. You’ll be extra happy to get your scrub on with shea, since it can also help ease muscle fatigue, leaving you rejuvenated.
You don’t just need a cuppa to reap all that green tea has to offer. When put to work on the skin, green tea’s ECGG antioxidants can help reduce breakouts and help prevent wrinkles. Plus, the polyphenols have been shown to help prevent skin cancer, so you’ll be extra glad to give yourself a rub down with the green goodness.
Packed with essential oils that keep inflammation under control and prevent the skin from losing moisture, these always-popular petals will keep young and mature skin alike amazingly smooth and silky. That intoxicating scent will also help keep you calm and collected, making this the perfect addition to your morning or evening routine.
Sweet Almond Oil
Spent a little too much time in the sun? Sweet almond oil can help chase away those pesky spots, and prevent new ones for popping up (just make sure you also remember the SPF next time, 'kay?) Besides keeping you smooth, this yummy-smelling emollient can help relieve itchiness and even help heal small scars.
Your new favorite multi-tasker. While these little bits of cocoa beans scrub away dead skin cells, they also impart a big dose of antioxidants that’ll help prevent tissue damage and slow signs of aging. And they smell pretty amazing.
Does anything sound more delicious than the words “cocoa butter?” Chock full of fatty acids to moisturize your skin and keep it supple, this smooth operator will help calm irritation and can even chase pesky stretch marks and small scars away.
This stuff is the bee’s knees. Naturally antibacterial and an excellent cleanser, your pores will be breathing easy when you sweep this sweetness all over. Dry skin got you down? Honey’s also a humectant, so you’ll get a big boost of moisture that stays locked in and helps give you a little glow.
The buzz doesn’t stop with the sweet stuff. Just like honey, the comb also has anti-inflammatory properties and contains vitamin A, which can help treat everything from fine lines to sun damage. Thank a bee next time you see one.
