Natural Remedies For Healthy Skin and Hair

All of us know that there is a spectrum of medications and treatments out there that promise to strengthen your hair, skin, and nails and soften their appearance for a nice, enviable look— however, when you pick up the bottle and check the ingredients inside of these treatments, hardly anything sounds remotely recognizable or natural.


In reality, there are a massive amount of rather long chemical names that you're pretty sure have been created in a lab. Fortunately, the era of not caring about or thinking about what's inside of our favorite wellness products is through. If you're joining the ranks of other wellness fiends that have decided to make more of an effort to understand what you're putting on or inside of your body, we're here to dish out our favorite natural remedies for healthy skin and hair. No unnatural chemicals, no problem.

If you’re looking for a few affordable and au natural ways to achieve healthier hair and skin, follow this guide.

Olive Oil

Olive oil has been shown to support hair health for centuries and centuries. Originating from olives, this miracle-working oil is comprised of emollients that soften and strengthen various parts of the body, including the hair and skin. Not only does olive oil provide a plethora of moisture to your body, but it also fights bacteria, helping you fight off the formulation of acne.

Olive oil also houses a number of fat-soluble vitamins including Vitamin A, D, E, and K. Regular intake of these vitamins has proven incredibly beneficial to the skin and can even help those struggling with eczema and psoriasis.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Despite it’s remarkably astringent and pungent odor, apple cider vinegar makes for a stellar hair rinse. By improving the luster of your locks and lowering hair and scalp PH, apple cider vinegar diluted with water can work wonders. To no surprise, apple cider vinegar also contains a number of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help prevent the development of bacteria on the scalp.

CBD

CBD is the non-intoxicating chemical compound extracted from marijuana or hemp plants. Over the course of the past few years, CBD has popped up in everything from skincare creams to beers! Maybe you’ve thought about CBD gummies or a CBD infused shampoo for your hair, but haven’t made the leap to actually try it. We’re here to give you that nudge! 

CBD has a number of anti-inflammatory benefits that can make it an amazing option for those with acne-prone skin. Studies have also found that CBD has the potential to lower excess sebum production, which can help those with oily skin manage their skin.

The cherry on top? For those worried about the development of fine lines and wrinkles, CBD has proven to be an amazing ingredient for diminishing a number of skin appearance issues linked to aging.

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E has been used in dermatology for the last half-century to protect the skin against aging, inflammation, and sun damage. Thanks to its fat-soluble antioxidant content, vitamin E is an essential ingredient for maintaining healthy skin and a robust immune system. Vitamin E is believed to enhance the quality and appearance of hair, skin, and nails. You can up your vitamin E intake orally in the form of a tablet or topically.

For those with dry or sensitive skin, vitamin E has been shown to create a protective barrier on the skin that helps lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated longer than your average cream. For those battling with dull or frizzy hair, Vitamin E can add shine to your hair, reduce breakage, and provide a much-needed protective layer to keep your hair looking salon-fresh every day.

Aloe Vera

Did you know that aloe vera can be grown virtually anywhere? Whether you have an indoor garden, an outdoor greenhouse, or a windowsill pot, growing your own aloe vera is simple and super beneficial for your skin and hair when applied appropriately.

Whether you’re dealing with an itchy scalp, dead ends, sunburnt skin, or oily hair, aloe vera is your one-stop-shop answer for all things hair and skin.

Takeaway
