  • Many natural ingredients have skin-soothing properties. Fennel is good for sensitive skin, while chervil helps moisturize dry skin.

Keeping your skin feeling fresh and maintaining a healthy complexion is one of the easiest and most beneficial things you can do to boost your self-esteem. But sometimes chemical-laden harsh cleansers and scrubs can wreak havoc on tender faces, causing acne breakouts and dry patches. Luckily, you can use natural cleansers instead of harsh soaps, and herbal scrubs and toners are simple to make at home.

Fresh facial masks are easy to create and can be tailored to your skin’s needs. Plant your own “Healthy Complexion Garden” in a sunny spot in your garden or in a container and you can have a year-round supply of fresh ingredients for your favorite homemade facial treatments. And don’t forget the importance of adequate sleep, water intake, sun protection, a healthy diet and daily exercise for healthy skin.
