Having a smooth and flawless complexion is one of the aesthetic aspirations that women strive for. There’s no denying that women are hooked on a lot of skin care products and cosmetics that they stuff in their cosmetic bags and bring with them all the time.  However, there are more natural and safer ways to attain radiant skin. One of these is through the use of herbs.

Herbs are commonly known as a part of an alternative medical regimen, and are primarily used for the treatment of certain kinds of diseases. And now, more than ever, people are more interested in buying herbal products since these are known to be natural, safe and less harsh. What many people are not aware of is that herbs can be excellent partners in achieving that glowing and radiant skin.

Here is a list of some herbs that contributes to a healthy and flawless complexion:

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a popular herbal solution that promotes hair growth, but aside from that, it is also good for maintaining supple and moisturized skin. Aloe Vera is packed with vitamins, amino acids, minerals and enzymes that are perfect skin supplements. This herb also contains a substance that enhances the activity of fibroblasts, which are responsible for production of collagen and elastin, essential components for a more youthful-looking skin.


Chamomile is another herb that has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. After several studies, doctors have also found that chamomile helps deactivate toxins and inhibit the spread of staphyloccocal bacteria strains. Chamomile also has a soothing effect on dry skin and helps soothe cuts and abrasions for those with sensitive and fragile skin.


Lavender has natural antioxidant contents that, when mixed with water and used as a mist, produces a calming and soothing effect. This soothing herb also helps strip off the irritating effects of free radicals and pollutants on the skin. Lavender, just like chamomile, has anti-inflammatory effects that help alleviate the progression of certain skin diseases like eczema, psoriasis and even acne.


Calendula or marigold, like other herbs, contains anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects that aid in wound healing and skin restoration after damage. Calendula also encourages collagen production, which is perfect for wound healing. It also has skin-softening properties that make the skin look glowing and supple.


Comfrey is another herb that has the ability to regenerate new skin cells. It is therefore, highly effective in treating skin diseases and inflammation such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.

Comfrey also contains allantoin, a substance best known for its natural ability in speeding the growth of healthy tissue and also promotes faster healing of wounds. Additionally, this herb helps the skin to recover faster from abrasions and lacerations.

Nowadays, women no longer need to spend a fortune just to make sure they’ll have supple and glowing skin. If they’ve been used to filling their cosmetic bags with synthetic products and chemical-based makeup, then they should explore new and more effective ways to achieve a smooth and radiant complexion. Herbs are one of the natural, safe and sure-fire ways that can really help women do wonders when it comes to skin care.
