According to the American Pharmaceutical Association Practical Guide to Natural Medicines, tea tree oil showed significant improvement in the number of acne lesions at the end of three months of using it. It also showed a lower incidence of adverse effects like irritation, burning sensation, dryness and itching. The anti-inflammatory property of plant terpenes and their corresponding alcohols is responsible for the action. It should be applied topically and not taken internally as it might lead to poisoning. Here are some home remedies for acne scars that really work.

The mucilage quickly swells into a gooey mass on adding water and relieves dry and inflamed skin due to dermatitis. That’s why you need to apply a paste of methimixed with water on the skin to deal with dermatitis in a natural way.

Aloe vera for burns and wounds

For many years, aloevera has been used to treat wounds and burns. It decreases itching and burning sensation and also aids in treating chronic leg ulcers and frostbite.

Day after day, time puts his mark on our bodies, showing that we are not all “equal”. Skin aging is there to remind us this process in a visible, sometimes cruel way. Many factors are responsible for these changes, from lifestyle to genetics. 

These signs are caused by a change or gradual decrease in the collagen level, fibers, elastin, hyaluronic acid and in fundamental substance of the dermis, and also increased skin dryness.

Skin aging follows the same rules as other organs, but the skin is subjected to specific aggression (like tobacco). Repeated aggressions of free radicals (oxidizing agent) associated with exposure to UV rays adds to skin metabolism, as part of the aging process. Therefore, certain areas (face, neck, back, hands, arms) are quickly affected by aging.
