Descrizione

Learn how to use herbs to care for your skin, hands, and feet. "Herbs for Healthy Skin" provides a wealth of information on skin and skin care. Many people turn to herbs because skin problems can become persistent and little relief is found with pharmaceutical drugs. Herbs are often less expensive and safer to use than over-the-counter sprays and ointments. You can learn how to simply treat many skin conditions yourself, at home, using herbs that you can grow or buy. With information on treating diaper rash, anthrax, acne, athlete's foot, aging skin, cold sores, and wounds naturally, Dr. Jones also provides suggestions for controlling infections and keeping them from spreading through your household. Also learn how to care for feet and prevent odor, corns, and aching feet. Nine herbs are chosen for detailed monographs including chamomile, lavender and thyme. Simple instructions for growing your own herbs and making your own ointments are included. Learn how skin changes from birth through aging. There are also over a dozen easy to make recipes for skin care products and instructions for personalizing them to meet your needs. This is a lot of information in a short, easy to read book. If you have skin, this book can help you!

Introduction

Skin care today is big business. If you peruse the cosmetics section of your department store you can easily become overwhelmed, not only with the choices offered, but also with the prices. Americans spend 45 billion dollars annually on cosmetics and 6,000 to 10,000 new products are introduced every year. Making cosmetics out of simple ingredients found in the kitchen and garden was once an art known to most women. You still can make your own skin care products though, and have fun doing it! The quality of the products you make will be far superior to the most expensive products found at the cosmetics counter, because you control the quality.

Keeping your skin healthy not only improves its appearance, but also is necessary for proper functioning of your skin. Important herbs to use for skin care include, but are not limited to, chamomile, fennel, lavender, lemon balm, pot marigold, red clover, rose, sage and thyme. These are all easy to grow herbs for the home gardener. If you don’t have the room or the inclination to grow herbs, they are also readily available at health food stores.
