Natural Beauty in Your Pantry: Part TwoSlideshow Mode
Planning on starting your own garden? Start with some lavender! Its fragrant scent and natural beauty benefits are all the more reason to add some flora to your home. According to dermatologists, lavender oil is one of the most beneficial oils to treat acne. It also serves as a great hair and skin treatment, stimulating growth and healing damaged hair and skin. Not to mention lavender oil is a miracle germ-killer, fighting against itchy scalps to leave you with healthy hair.
NOW Foods also provides a great pure lavender oil that’s filled to the brim with soothing, normalizing, and balancing benefits. Remember, this natural essential oil is highly concentrated; if you want to dilute it, look for a carrier oil such as jojoba oil before use!
Pure vitamin E is your skin’s best friend. Not only is it great for anti-aging and prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radicals, it’s really just great for all skin issues: dryness, sunburns, scars, stretch marks, dark spots, you name it! Your hair would love some vitamin E too; vitamin E helps stimulate hair growth, prevents premature greying, and repairs split ends.
Cococare’s 100% vitamin E oil is a great option for those looking for liquid vitamin E. You can easily find pure vitamin oil at your local Whole Foods or CVS!
Coconut oil could very well be the holy grail of natural beauty products. The health benefits are endless; it’s antibacterial, antifungal, and even smells scrumptious. It’s great as a moisturizer for any part of your body—hello soft baby hands and easy shaving! Coconut oil is also better able to penetrate hair, use it as a deep-conditioner or apply just a dab to the ends of your hair for a lustrous shine. It’s also face-friendly, making it the perfect cleanser or makeup-remover.
