History has proven that proper skin care has been dated back to the beginnings of mankind. Especially herbal skin care.

Modern technology has allowed skin care to transform in a huge manner. Natural skin care treatments have been taken over by chemical and or synthetic based skin care treatments.

The herbal skin care recipes which once used to be common place are not so popular today (and even unknown to a large population).

These changes run parallel to the way we live in our modern society. Due to our lack of time, the rapid pace of our lifestyles and the convenience of ready made products, it is easy to see why chemical skin care treatments have replaced herbal ones.

If fact, even herbal skin care treatments have become mass produced. While this is good in some respect, the fact that these herbal remedies have been diluted with preservatives to increase shelf life is a disappointment. Simply put, these herbal remedies with preservatives are not as potent as their homemade versions.

However, it seems that things are changing fast and more people are now opting for natural and herbal skin care routines.

But still, none wants to make them at home and hence the commercial market of herbal skin care products is on the rise.

Aloe Vera, which is an extract from Aloe plant, is one of the best examples of herbal skin care product.

Freshly extracted aloe Vera is a natural hydrant that helps in soothing skin. It also helps in healing cuts and treating sun burns.

A number of herbs are known to possess cleansing properties. Dandelion, chamomile, lime flowers and rosemary herbs, are a few examples of such cleansers. Their herbal skin care properties get invoked when they are combined with other herbs like tea.

Finally, one must mention the antiseptic qualities of herbs. Effective herbal skin care is part of an overall process which includes herbs such as marigold, fennel, thyme and lavender for the maintenance of healthy skin tone.
