You may not be much of a believer in natural skin remedies, but the ones on our list have also been approved by science. To boot, they can save you a lot of money, pain, and/or awkwardness.

Wrinkles emerge on one’s skin because, with age, the skin loses its moisture. An entire host of issues emerge like this, starting with a loss of self-confidence, but also continuing with more hands-on problems, such as a ruined complexion. If you want to help combat the issue of a lack of moisture, you can always make yourself one of our favorite natural skin remedies. It only takes 3 tablespoons of fresh cream, a quarter of an avocado and a tablespoon of honey. All the ingredients need to be pureed together with the aid of a blender, then applied to the skin, and left there for at least one hour. Rinse your skin with warm water at the end and enjoy the benefits of a smooth complexion.

Best natural skin remedies for skin tags: Thuja occidentalis oils

Skin tags are small flaps of skin that hang loose, yet are still connected to the rest of the skin through stalks. They also appear as we age, but have been linked with weight gain and hormonal changes as well. There are many surgical ways to remove them, yet if you worry about scarring or pain, perhaps Tagaway is a better solution for you. Tagaway is a topical formula made with Thuja occidentalis oils. It’s one of our all natural skin remedies, has no side effects and leaves no marks, unlike laser or the procedure through which skin tags are frozen off.

Yeast and lemon juice against acne

Has it ever happened to you to have a zit appear right before a major event, such as a presentation or a big night out? We bet it has, but, luckily, we also have some natural skin remedies against it. Perhaps the quickest acting and most efficient is a self-made paste, which uses a bit of brewer’s yeast, a couple of drops of lemon juice, and some water. Simply apply it to the spot, cover it up with a bandage and leave it there for ten minutes.

Spots be gone with lemons and agavenatural-skin-remedies02

Old age spots, which most often affect people’s hands, can cause a lot of distress, especially for those preoccupied with maintaining a youthful appearance. They, of all people, should know that a good exfoliation can help remove spots, by peeling away the dead skin layers which also contain the pigment that produces spots. Of all natural skin remedies, we found the best exfoliator to be a recipe that contains half a cup of cooked rice, one agave nectar tablespoon and one of lemon juice. Mix them up, blend them, scrub the area you want to exfoliate for 1-2 minutes and you will notice your skin instantly becoming softer.

Softer lips with coffee

The skin on our lips also tends to get calloused, especially in winter, when the weather becomes cold and windy. It’s easy to exfoliate your lips right at home—and we bet you’ve got all the natural skin remedies you need for this recipe. Use half a teaspoon of moisturizer, one quarter teaspoon of ground coffee, and the same amount of Kosher salt. Mix them thoroughly, apply them to your lips and massage them for about five minutes. Wipe off the residue with a cloth dipped in warm water.
