It’ll lift your skin and give you a nice healthy glow which is why a lot of companies are adding it to their products, like this under eye cream for hydration, for example.

Honey is great for your skin as long as you get raw honey and not the processed stuff that you usually find in the supermarkets. It’s great as a moisturizer so you should use it to keep your skin looking vibrant in the winter when the cold and the wind dry it out a lot. It has antibacterial qualities as well which make it perfect for fighting spots. If you’ve got any cuts or scrapes, you should put honey on those as well because it helps to speed up the healing process.

Sea salt is filled with all sorts of minerals and nutrients like calcium or potassium that it picks up from the water. A lot of those ingredients are the same things that are in skin cells so using sea salt can really help to repair and protect your skin. You can make homemade face masks with sea salt and use it as a natural exfoliator to remove dead skin cells. It also helps to balance the oil production in your skin which reduces the likelihood of getting spots.

Aloe vera is fairly well known as a sunburn treatment but it has a lot more uses than that. It has a lot of ingredients that fight bacteria and some that reduce inflation. That makes it ideal for any kind of rash or dry, cracked skin. It’s incredibly cost effective as well because you can buy an Aloe Vera plant pretty cheap and you’ve got a constant supply. Just make sure that you cut a small wedge out of the leaf when you use it, rather than snapping the whole thing off. If you break off an entire leaf, it won’t grow back properly.
These natural alternatives are often better than skin creams filled with lots of different chemicals and they usually work out cheaper as well.
