Up to 50 percent of women say they have sensitive skin, from redness and dry skin to bumps and blemishes. The organ most exposed to the elements, skin faces an onslaught of external stressors, including dry air, harsh winds and pollution, as well as internal factors such as diet, stress, lifestyle choices (smoking, alcohol, caffeine consumption) and genetics. Fortunately there are a number of plant-based products that we can use to help care for our skin—sans chemicals. In this video, Editor-in-Chief Jessica Kellner demonstrates three simple, natural beauty recipes with aloe, vitamin E, coconut oil, yogurt, grapeseed oil and lemon juice.
